Is Robin still cool?

Robin's back in Batman Arkham City, and looking much tougher than I remember him.

But do we really want him back? I've kind of been enjoying Robin-less Batman in both films and games.
I think most people jump to the 70's Robin and Teen Titans Robin when he comes to mind. Which is actually not like him at all, he can be pretty badass when he needs to.

Give him a more superhero's name, and I'll start taking him seriously.

My sentiments exactly!

'The Pelican' sounds more threatening.

But he's a sidekick... -_-

Doesn't the name Robin have something to do with him being part of the circus with his family before they died in a freak circus accident at the hands of Two-Face?

I never found Robin particularly interesting. I find him kind of pointless. I don't see how Batman can associate with him, despite both of their parents having being killeds. Robin is kind of like the cocky jock that wants to be a show pony, the last kind of person you'd expect Batman to instill his trust in. Batman isn't really meant to be a superhero. He's just a vigilante with a lot at his disposal. Superman is a superhero.
I guess it will depend on what role he plays.
I hope he is a badass.

And...?

'Sidekick' suggests to me that he's an equal. He fights alongside Batman... not beneath him.

Everyone wants to be Batman... not Robin... and why? Because of his suspiciously gay name (of course, no offense to anyone named Robin... I'm just using it in a Superhero context)
How often did he appear in games? Not like he's over used right?? :S
I think you are asking the wrong question. This thread SHOULD be Was Robin ever cool BEFORE right now?

Seeing him in this light is the ONLY time I thought he was cool....ever!

Oh well... I've always had a soft spot for 'the other guy'... Luigi, for example.
I guess I've always viewed him as cool, because nobody really liked him, and Batman got all the attention.

E: Sniped. [Rage]

I have hopes of that changing after this Pilky.

I think a lot of people just haven't given him a chance yet, he will surprise you all.

...I can't believe I'm sticking up for a Batman character.

IRON MAN FO' LIFE!

Haha, yeah.
I'm more a Marvel guy, myself, despite the fact I have the bare knowledge of superhero origins.
He looks like Cole McGrath [Derp]

A robin is such a small, pitiful bird, no wonder people think that Robin is no good. He should be renamed to Hawk, or Bald Eagle. [MOG]
How about Nightwing Matteh?
That sounds better. =D

Or BatBoy. [MOG]
He reminds me of the Scout in TF2.
