Tim Drake (Robin)

This Tim Drake hails from the distant and often painfully handled land of canon, currently embroiled in the events of 52. While wild speculation and Swamp Thing's repeated promises of pina coladas have hinted that he may at any moment depart from traumatizing canon environs for fairer shores, where Cassandra doesn't get plotjacked, Bart doesn't die, the Giant Yellow Space Bug of Fear — okay, well, that's still around, but you can't have everything — is stridently not spoken of, and so on and so forth … this tempting lapse of sanity has yet to happen.

Until then, Tim tenaciously clings to the scraps of his emotional health, reforms the Titans, has confusing oral interaction with Cassie, spends long hours trying to clone his best friend back to life, struggles to find his new place in Bruce's life despite their history and the annoying spawn from the past popping up, and — though he can't remember the details upon waking — he dreams. He dreams about the Nexus, where he speaks to people he's lost and people he'll never meet and people who have his face or the faces of people he loves but are nothing like them.

When he wakes up, sometimes things are a little less difficult to get through. Sometimes it's a little easier to breathe. And that can't be a bad thing? Can it?
