Re: Robin or no Robin?
I think a robin introduction is fine, given how it mirrors Bruce's origin.
This way we don't have to have Batman begins.
The only problem I have is that that's pretty much Batman Forever.
Though there's justification for going over the same stuff again, is rather that it was completely different, ala a Tim Drake or Damien Wayne intro, with an established Nightwing (and Dick's origin told through brief dialogue and/or flashback)
