What to do with Kon, Tim, Cassie and Bart ?

With new characters and origin changes it makes it a little hard to include some of the older characters. Some go missing for awhile or struggle with finding some direction.

Conner Kent/Kon-El/Superboy

With Lois Lane and Clark Kent's son Jon taking the mantle Conner has been noticeably absent. What identity would he take once he returns?

Cassandra Sandsmark/Wonder Girl

She went from daughter of Helen and Zeus to Helen and Lennox (the demigod son of Zeus.) With Wonder Woman's origins being redone and having the New 52 stuff undone it's unclear when she'll return. Will she go back to being Zeus daughter? What about her history with Diana?

Bart Allen/Impulse/Kid Flash

The new Wally has taken the Kid Flash title. This one could be an easy fix if DC wants Bart to just use the Impulse name. I'm not sure if they want the grandson of Barry Allen to be around. I don't know if the mind set that "kids age characters" is still a thing but this seemed to be the thought process in New 52.

Tim Drake/Robin/Red Robin

I think this became a problem ever since Damian entered the picture. Tim was kicked out of the Robin role and trying to find a new niche. He's not even as close to Dick as he used to be as a result of the attention put on Damian/Dick. If he didn't have his friendship with Jason I would have thought he had not connections in the bat family before he got put into Det. I have no idea what Tynion has planned but Tim needs to do something that makes him stand out. Honestly I think DC only has one strong direction for a Robin at the moment. Damian has taken the Teen Titans making Tim's options even more limited.


  1. Me too. I loved how he acted when he was Impulse.
