Does Tim Drake know that Digger (Captain Boomerang) is back?

#1 Posted by Mainline (1129 posts) - - Show Bio

If so, what story addressed it and if not who should be the one to bring it up to him considering Digger was in custody since Blackest Night? 
 
Is this a portent that Digger will die before his story crosses Tim's path?  Or of the superhero community's general disregard for Tim's feelings?  Editorial oversight?  Or what?

yeah he does know that he's alive and he's actually visited him in jail once or twice in the last two red robin issues

As a civilian I assume?  It'd be a bit short-sighted to visit as Robin and say "You killed my father!"  But if he's visiting as Tim Dr- er- Wayne... what's the point, isn't he just a kid?  Well thanks for the answers I may pick this up.

Tim knows that Digger is alive, he wants digger to break out of prison so that Tim can teach him a lesson. I think Tim is going to step over the line and murder Digger.

Wasn't Digger a complete slob when he was killed during Identity Crisis? That White Lantern blew those pounds away!

Yea i could see him permenently injuring Digger. Maybe shatter all the bones in his hands so he can no longer throw anything 
 
@Theodore: Thanks thats what i thought.

The White Lantern entity is a tapeworm. True story.

@RedK:
yea but if it becomes an intricate plan then it will look more evil rather then jsut cutting loose once and him ending up in a full body cast. I dont think they would allow tim to go that far, specially when Bruce is back.

Also is it just me or is that Digger image above the spitting image of William Dafoe?!

@DEGRAAF:  but cutting loose makes him come off as uncontroled and easily enraged, instead of intelligent and cunning, and it would only be evil if it was to torture him he wants to make him pay maybe he'll make sure that all the money he has and will ever get his hands on he can't keep and making sure the cops always know werw he'll be
 
@thechessclub:
your right the artist probably used him to base digger's new look on

@RedK:
see that doesnt sound to bad. when you first mentioned planning it sounded more like you were talking about, being around every corner destroying his life physically, mentally, and emotionally. Basically doing to him what was recently done to Bruce

Yeah.  It must have reversed the magic spell that caused him to become fat and bald overnight.

Was it overnight?  What was his most recent appearance prior to Identity Crisis?  Maybe the government put something in him during his Suicide Squad service? ;-)

Tim's  not gunna get a shot at him till all this Brightest Day stuff is over I'm sure. Pretty cool that Digger can summon boomerangs now.

Does anyone watch southpark did you see the episode where cartman mess's up scott tenermen...... Tim should do that to cap boomerang

 

if you didn't see it sorry to complicated and gruseome to relate lets just say that for a whole season afterwards cartmans catchphrase was

"I'll make you eat your parents!!!!"
