The Renegade Robins Club may have seemed at little off-brand over the last year with these Spoiler adventures, but your patience is finally rewarded: Tim steps down, and Stephanie Brown dons the Bird Suit! Let’s hope it lasts!
Really glad to see the Wizard Magazine short and the Solo #10 short story referenced! The Solo short story was included in the 2015 War Games trade, which is available digitally, so I’m not wholly sure why it’s not on DCUI, though possibly they only digitized that one story of the five or six in the issue.
Regarding the poll question, I said “Happy either way”, but I do think that Robin (and Batgirl) represent a significant “levelling up” in terms of access to training, equipment, and visibility, and while I adore Steph in all identities, I think her character deserves the visibility of those more high profile roles. And I think that her filling the role of Robin was really, really fun, and deserved a really long run (as Willingham has mentioned - spoiler alert in the video for War Games, though!)
I shall wait on the Discussion Question until next week, and I hope to see a few other Steph fans chime in on that!
