Poll: How Dangerous Is Tim With Prep? (12 votes)

Top 3 in DCU 25%
Top 5 in DCU 17%
Top 10 in DCU 17%
Not In Top 10 42%

Using feats and skills from both Pre 52, and New 52, how dangerous is Tim when given prep time? Is he in the upper echelon of DC characters?

Keep in mind current titles with Tim, Robin series, and Red Robin series.

I wouldn't even put Tim in the top 25. Tim is best served being the smart Robin and probably the worst fighter of the male Robins.

Just so you guys know, this is about Tim strategizing and planning on how to take down an opponent, not necessarily walking into a Straight up fight.

Think about the Hit List, taking down Shiva, crippling the League of Assassins, etc,.

I don't know if it counts as prep but he took out The Council of Spiders (a group of assassins that predated on the League of Assassins) single handedly by employing a tactic he came up with on the spot. Also swindled the League of Assassins of all their resources I believe, all while under the constant surveillance. Not really prep feats, but he's a good prepper and analyst.

His New-52 incarnation working with the Titans is pretty underwhelming. He is still pretty smart, but not much of a good prepper seeing as how easily the cyborg assassin incapitated him.

Not top 10 but he is a good strategist. IIRC he can run up to three scenarios simultaneously.

wow unless those people put him at number 11 I don't know what they're thinking. I can't think of other people who plan out more than Tim. I get that there are more dangerous people overall but I don't think it matters we are talking about how good he is at prep. Except for Batman there is no better human being at this.
