|BOTH ROBINS HOW THEY LOOKED AT THE BEGINNING OF THEIR CRIME FIGHTING CAREERS|
This fact of the forever youthful Ward of Bruce Wayne was again a problem. However, whilst the Earth 1 version of the Boy Wonder would remain in SHORT PANTS for many years to come, his "OLDER" counterpart on the newly conceived Earth 2 was finally allowed to grow up.
As Earth 2's Heroes lived in a Universe that allowed many to now age this meant that the Boy Wonder was now a Man Wonder. When BAT-MAN of Earth 2 married and started a family and hung up his cape and retired (More about this next time) he left his young partner to take his position as senior Crime fighter in Gotham City.
Taking elements from his Robin costume and that of BAT-MAN the "NEW" Robin was born. This original costume was not great, but it did allow Dick Grayson to caste off his BOY WONDER tag.
|EPIC FAIL ON THE FASHION FRONT DICK !|
Taking his mentors place in The Justice Society Robin found that most of the Senior members of the JSA still considered him a Side Kick.
However in an adventure that involved the annual team up with the Justice League from Earth one and the Justice Society of Earth 2, where both Dick Graysons got a chance to team up and discuss the Problems they had stepping out of the Shadows of their Bat-Mentors, the Earth 2 former Boy Wonder found acceptance and showed he deserved to be one of the JSA
By the end of the adventure Both Robins understood each other and their position in their worlds a little bit better,
Robin from Earth 2 went on to become a key player in the Justice Society that had just started to have younger members admitted, many of which were in someway connected to some of the older members.
With final acceptance of who he was by the JSA, Robin embraced the fact he was NOT a replacement to the Bat-Man, he was a hero in his own right and would later don a costume that was more of an adult take on his Robin look, not a BAT-MAN -ish copy of his Dark Knight Partner.
|A COSTUME FIT FOR A HERO AT LAST.|
He would eventually be joined by a "Junior" partner, but this was not a teenaged side kick, she was a hero born into the business.... More about her soon.
Until then here is a final look at Richard Grayson from Earth 2 ....... ROBIN, The EX-Boy WONDER
