Kyle Higgins was good enough to answer questions last night about the new Nightwing series. Apparently Dick is now 21, which means Roy would be too. (Lian would have been two or three.) Yeah, this kinda of annoys me. There was supposed to be an age gap between Dick and the younger bats. He was 19 when Bruce got Jason, who was 12. Jason is around a year and a half to two years older than Tim. Now Dicks' three years older than him? How does that work? Did Bruce decide that Dick was too old at 15? Was Jason only a Robin for a year? Same thing with Babs, the reason it was cool that they were older was because they were old enough to mentor the kids that took up their legacies. It's hard for me to think of either as real mentors when they only had a couple more years of experience than the other bat kids.
Higgins also says we'll see more of Babs, which I hope will calm people out for Lobdells' blood simply because he said Kory isn't too happy with Dick at the moment. Which was actually a plot point before the relaunch so he's not just coming up with it from thin air.
