TV’s Robin, Burt Ward, Comments on Current Robin Events

It’s a terrible choice to kill off Robin. Why bite the hand that feeds you? … Robin should only die in people’s imaginations! Or in a state of primal ecstasy!Burt Ward.

Well, I can certainly understand Ward’s distress over the fate of a fictional character that he’s close to, even more when he’s responsible for embodying one of the most iconic versions of that character. Although it’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time this has happened, nor is the current Robin even the same character as the one he played in the television show -

Wait, did he say in a state of primal ecstasy?

Star Wars and Superhero Socks, Because You Never Need an Excuse to Ogle Some Nerdy Socks

Perfect for the 501st!

Or maybe not. Maybe they wear tights under their armor, I guess I don’t actually know. The great thing about nerdy socks? Unlike nerdy t-shirts and just like nerdy Converse: they’re unisex.

Spoiler Alert For the New 52… By Which I Mean Stephanie Brown is the Spoiler in the New 52

With Barbara Gordon reclaiming the mantle of Batgirl in the rebooted DCU, it was uncertain whether the most recent Batgirl, Stephanie Brown, would remain part of continuity. However, just as Dick Grayson has once again reverted to the persona of Nightwing, it seems that Stephanie Brown has similarly been returned to being Spoiler. This is revealed in passing in the recent solicitations for Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes. It reads:

“Guest stars galore! Batman and Spoiler team to face the School of Night while Batman Incorporated travels to a sinister Cold War interrogation facility to face the mind-bending menace of Doctor Dedalus for the last time while the true identity of Leviathan is finally revealed, with shocking consequences for the Dark Knight.”

Holy Supercut, Batman!: Watch All of Robin’s “Holy”s from the Animated Series

Robin doesn’t know a whole lot of different ways to register shock. He can identify what he is shocked at, but when it comes to exclamations he seems to have a pretty limited vocabulary. Basically, he says “Holy” a lot. A lot a lot. All the frakking time. Although, to his credit the amount of things he’s shocked about seem to vary widely (“Holy strange odors!” “Holy Benedict Arnold!” “Holy Split-Personalities!” “Holy False Imprisonment!” “Holy Float Like a Butterfly Sting Like a Bee!”). Now they’ve all been conveniently placed in one video cutting all of them together. Enjoy.
