First off, I have no problem with the fact John Blake (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is an amalgamated version of all the Robins. It makes sense. If Tim Drake is someone's favorite, for example, then they can see the qualities they like in Tim in Blake. Same goes for Dick or Jason. Maybe not Damian. Ha.. or Stephanie or Carrie for that matter.
But in my extended head movies, I have the various versions of the Robins and, to me, only Dick has dibs on inheriting the Batman name upon the immediate resignation (or faked death) of Bruce. So I chose to reconcile all of that.
I also noted a lot of people are in debate as to whether he should be Nightwing or Batman. It kind of doesn't make sense for him to change the name of the mantle.. but I didn't see anything wrong with adding in Nightwing elements WHILE he was proving himself worthy (hence the suit)
There was a whole lot more backstory planned for this piece but I couldn't fit it all into one page. I wanted to get more than a mention of Lucius in there, but couldn't squeeze it in. Also wanted to mention that Robin was interacting with the orphanage just upstairs from his headquarters. In any case, it is a 'to be continued' into the next character study of my extended Nolanverse story.
Also, have to give credit where credit is due.. I was heavily influenced by the stunning CG render of Batman Beyond by Mark Vick - [link]
-- when I first saw it, I thought holy crap.. someone HAS to make a movie out of this design.
P.S. Loosely used the wifey as reference for Shiva
