Batman fans shocked as Robin comes out as bisexual

Holy there’s a turn-up for the books! Batman’s sidekick Robin has come out as bisexual.

The comic-book crimefighter, aka Tim Drake, makes the revelation in the latest instalment of 'Batman: Urban Legends’ when he agrees to go on a date with a male character called Bernard Dowd.

The new DC comic sees Robin and Bernard fighting alongside each other before Robin visits him at his apartment.

When Bernard answers the door, Robin says: “I’m really glad you got home okay. I was relieved. 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.”

Bernard responds, telling Robin: “I was hoping you would. Tim Drake … do you want to go on a date with me?”

To which Robin, who has previously dated female characters, replies: “Yeah, yeah, I think I want that.”
