The latest teenage iteration of Batman’s sidekick, Robin, has been revealed as bisexual in an upcoming comic.
Tim Drake, the name of the character who doubles as Robin in the newest “Batman: Urban Legends” installment, describes the incident when he learned of his feelings toward a fellow named Bernard Dowd as “a lightbulb moment,” according to TMZ.
“The story goes … Robin had a ‘lightbulb moment’ while fighting side-by-side with Bernard. After coming to his rescue as Robin, Tim later hits up Bernard’s pad, and you can see the anticipation’s building ’cause he hypes himself up, saying … ‘It’s OK, Tim. You got this,’” per TMZ.
“When Bernard opens the door he’s on the verge of asking out Tim on a date, but Tim interrupts with … ‘I’m really glad you got home okay. I was relieved. And I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, about that night. And I — I don’t know what it meant to me. Not yet. But I’d like to figure it out,” TMZ continued.
The two eventually agree to a date, which will reportedly be explored in the next issue, due out in December.
