Do you think Tim Drake (wayne) will ever be Batman?

Will he? He became Batman in earth 12 but that's different. I think he deserves it.

hope he never becomes Batman.


He can become Batman 20 years from now at the earliest

Nope... Damien Wayne is next in line. Batman #666 shows it.

I'm not sure, even though he matches Bruce in detective skills and brains I doubt that DC will choose a Bruce clone when they can just bring him back to life. Also after Bruce comes back I don't think he will be too happy about how Tim is acting as Red Robin. Not only is he acting more brutal to criminals but he he isn't even thinking about the mission to protect Gotham which is what Bruce would have wanted.

he says that he's only doing his "shift" as robin it could go two ways but i'd like to see him as batman before damien but only for a short time then damien takes over and he's the last batman cause of the deal he made so he can never die and will keep being the batman

I hope he is cause i dont like dick as batman and after that bruce need to come back, you cant keep him as somebody different forever cuase then i'll quit batman but for as long as they'll have him as somebody else it needs to be tim, never damien.

In Batman #666 Damien references the Bruce and Dick were the batman(s) before him. Tim would be a lame Batman. He should stay red robin its a good role.

@RedRobin92: naw he wouldnt be lame, he would just be almost like bruce, i would like to see how differnt he would be as batman than bruce. but seein red robin is almost like seein him become batman and i luv that, and at the same time i wanna see him as robin again i miss seein the other uniform. to me damien seem like he might be a lame batman.

What issue is this from? It is always referenced when the Tim as Batman question is asked, but with everything that has happened in Tim's life the last few years he can never go back to a "normal" life and he knows that now.

In some future alternate timeline/dimension. Too many trying out for the mantle of the bat.  There is really only one, the rest are just wearing the costume. No different from Nightwing, his character has progressed so much on his own, it's a shame to think in the end all you ended up being is the shadow of the bat! I'm sure no one thinks Dick as Bats is permanent, he's just too good a character on his own, why lose all that originality and character development into something he's not permanently?

@Truex:  its from nightwing issue 6

He should stay as Red Robin, it's the only DC comic I haven't tossed across my room because it sucked.

Batman and Robin is really good and Blackest Night is going to be amazing

he could be i think he would be good but i like him as red robin though

I prefer Tim as Robin over Dick because he seemd to fit the role better but I would rather have him grow into the Red Robin role than the Batman one(although him being Batman really would not be all bad).

I feel like the only one who hates the idea of Damien as Batman. I don't care what 666 says. Comics change like crazy.
 
I don't mind Tim as Bat but I see it as so very reluctant. I'd like him to develop his own (like he's doing with Red) and become something that equals Bats.

Tim told Batman to his face that he would never become Batman

You know at first I wanted Tim to become Batman, but as the whole Red Robin thing progresses I think Tim has found that Nitch that Dick did as Nightwing.  I think it would be Interesting to See Dick Stay as Batman, and Tim either take up the Nightwing mantle, or Stay as Red Robin
 
Or Better yet, have him come back and Stomp a mudhole in Damien, and Reclaim the Robin title, but keep the Red Robin suit
