First Look At Earth II Robin In The New 52

DC Comics’ blog The Source posted another Earth 2 character reveal today. This time it’s Robin designed by Kevin Maguire. Check it out.

Coming in May, DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave” will literally expand the world-building efforts of the comprehensive publishing initiative. With the addition of a parallel Earth that features prominently into both EARTH 2 and WORLDS’ FINEST, the developing narrative will encompass new heroes from distinctly different backgrounds, building on the shared universe in some surprising ways.

“Helena Wayne has been taught how to be the perfect Robin,” said James Robinson, writer of EARTH 2. “Assured as a detective, fighter, scientist, pilot and all around crime-fighter she’s been groomed by Batman to be the perfect caped manhunter (or should we say manHuntress) when she grows up.”

“Before coming to the main DCU Earth and taking up the mantle of Huntress, Helena Wayne fought crime alongside her father as the Robin to his Batman on Earth-2!” said WORLDS’ FINEST editor Wil Moss. “But how did she come to be on this Earth? And why did she decide to become Huntress? You’ll get some clues in next week’s HUNTRESS #6, but for the real scoop, pick up WORLDS’ FINEST #1!”

While I really like the fact that they’ve brought the pre – Crisis secret identity of The Huntress back in the New 52, I was hoping for an updated version of the adult Dick Grayson from the old Earth 2. If those Nightwing escrima sticks the new Earth 2 Batman is toting is an indication, we may still see a more grown up Dick Grayson. Let me know your thoughts, your opinions, and your theories in the comments section below.
