@outside_85: the thing is though that Tim has beaten Damian while the only time that Damian has gotten any kind of upperhand over Tim is when he suckerpunched him.....Tim is clearly a better fighter than Damian
How about this,Pre-Robin Tim vs Pre-Robin Damian,who do you think wins that bout?
I'd go with Damian there...Tim had little to no training before he became Robin....but by the time that Damian came around Tim had already gotten to his Pre52 prime...having trained with Batman for years and having gone through his training with Lady Shiva even having defeated Lady Shiva after his training
they've managed to talk up Damian's training throughout the years but he really hasn't done anything special since his introduction
Tim hasn't exactly done anything special either when you think about it.
taking down King Snake, beating Shiva twice (one was through prep) and all but bringing down the League of Assassins and getting some of the top praise available from Ra's in the process isn't special?
King Snake was all over the place,he's lost to Batman badly,barely survived Silver Monkey(who one shotted Tim),got stalemated by KG Beast and was tossed aside casually by venom less Bane(who has also owned Drake).IIRC the circumstances in which Tim beat him are suspect anyway,his fighting style was thrown off completely due to his new found visibility.
The other time was a spar.
Fodder LOA,and praise from Ra' actually meant something back in the 90's,now everyone is getting praise cause it's cheap and easy. Tim didn't earn his praise in the slightest.
