Batman timeline - incorporating Dick, Jason, Tim, Damian etc.

#1 Posted by masahikotahara (11 posts) - - Show Bio

Hello everyone! I'm currently busy filming timeline videos of all my Batman, Robin and Nightwing trades and separate issues (from Batman: Year One all the way to The New 52!).

The list of titles/story arcs/cross-overs is quite extensive, but maybe you guys can help me, maybe add some titles and sort things out?

Oh, and please, forget The New 52 crap (for now)...I want to present a correct Batman timeline with important events concerning ALL Robins, Nightwing and (some) Batgirl.

So, please add, comment, correct, JUMP IN!

Also, some knowledge is needed about the exact place of ALL Crises!!!

--> Batman: Son Of The Demon was never intended to be in continuity at the time of publication. When Grant Morrison wrote Batman & Son there was much talk that he was bringing it into continuity, but he made several changes to the conception of the baby that made it impossible. Morrison stated numerous times that he wasn't bringing it into continuity, but rather using the concept for his own means. He has clarified this in a way that will take a little explaining because it crosses three totally seperate continuities.

1986-2011: Damian is introduced and his origin is referenced numerous times but never explicitly shown.

2011-Present: Batman Incorporated Vol 2 #2 clearly shows Damian to have been conceived at the very end of...
