Oh, no. No no, you're getting it wrong.The Batman doesn't KICK Robin's ass....
Ahhh- You totally beat me to a "Batman LOVES pounding Dick's ass" joke!!!I... I think there is seriously something wrong with us comic readers.
My first thought was to say "The first rule about kicking Robin's ass is Do Not Talk About Kicking Robin's Ass."
When someone expresses a hatred for Robin I thats my sign that its safe to ignore any opinion they have about comics from that point on. Same goes for hating on Superman.
I imagine that if he were Batman, Robin would be kicking his ass every day. As would Riddler, the Ventriloquist, Harvey Bullock, random juvenile delinquents, ultimate frisbee players, Stephen Hawking, etc...
Well, Robin was named the lamest superhero of all time. It's okay to kick his butt.
