The Robin that Once Was by CoranKizerStone The Robin that Once Was by CoranKizerStone
Did this a while back and thought I'd pop it up. What If Carrie Kelley's mother "Terry Kelley" was the "Robin" before her. While Bruce was the Bats in his 40's. She later quite crime fighting while in her mid 20's to live a normal life and to have a family. Somehow the Joker found out who she was and sent his goons after her to kill her. Unfortunately they succeeded. I thought that maybe Carrie learned the history of her mother and her murder and in her memory decided on being the next boy..cough Girl Wonder. hehe!

I saw this and thought it was quite reminiscent of Frank Miller's Robin, and then I read up on it. I'm amazed that you made art in your own style, but it still reads like the characters you drew inspiration from.

Excellent execution.

Carrie has always been my personal favorite, and I LOVE how you drew her outfit and thought of the different background. This should be in a new Batman animated show. AS IN NOW.

i know this is going to sound snobby but i can't resist. I think you mean "succeeded" when you wrote "seceded". Seceded is what the south did when they declared war on the north in 1860's America.

Weren't Carrie's parents presented as stoner hippies in TDKR? I like the idea of the first Robin growing up to be a stoner hippie...

Seceded means to give up your throne, which would also be unfortunate, but not so applicable to the story.

I apologize, I'm a dirty obsessive-compulsive grammar nazi.

Yep, and they were VERY inattentive. When she's out helping Batman fight the Mutant Leader for the first time they cut back to a smokey living room with the word balloon, "Hey, didn't we have a kid?"
