Bisexual Tim is coming to HBO Max’s Titans series.
DC fans went wild when the popular comic Batman: Urban Legends revealed that Robin (Time Drake) is bisexual. In issue six of the comic, Tim must save his good friend Bernard after he is kidnapped by the sinister Chaos Monster. When Robin arrives to rescue Bernard, he confides in the super and tells him about his crush and his sexuality. Without realizing it, Bernard tells Tim his crush on him is what made him realize he is gay. After justice is served and Bernard is home safe, Tim pays him a visit, and feelings are shared.
“I’m really glad you got home okay. I was relieved,” Tim says. “And I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about that night, and I – I don’t know what it meant to me, not yet. But I’d like to figure it out.”
“I was hoping you would,” Bernard replies. “Tim Drake, do you want to go on a date with me?”
“Yeah, Yeah I think I want that.”
