Etymology: [Properly a pet name for Robert, originally meaning, famebright; F., fron OHG. Roudperht; ruod (in comp.; akin to AS. hr glory, fame, Goth. hrpeigs victorius) + beraht bright. See Bright, Hob a clown.]
Robin is the name of several fictional characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics, originally created by Bob Kane, Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson, as a junior counterpart to DC Comics superhero Batman. The team of Batman and Robin is commonly referred to as the Dynamic Duo or the Caped Crusaders. The character's first incarnation Dick Grayson debuted in Detective Comics #38. Conceived as a vehicle to attract young readership, Robin garnered overwhelmingly positive critical reception, doubling the sales of the Batman related comic books. The early adventures of Robin included Star Spangled Comics #65-130, which was the character's first solo feature. Robin made regular appearances in Batman related comic books and other DC Comics publications from 1940 through the early 1980s until the character set aside the Robin identity and became the independent superhero Nightwing. Afterwards, the character's second incarnation Jason Todd debuted in Batman #357. This Robin made regular appearances in Batman related comic books until 1988, when the character was murdered by the Joker in A Death in the Family. Jason would later find himself alive after a reality changing incident, eventually becoming the Red Hood.

Robin and I always are (nervous), i get there for warmups, and I always watch him go through the same routine every day ever since high school. He seems pretty comfortable and confident really all the time. It’s really fun to watch.
Lewy body dementia killed Robin.
I think she would have been a comedienne. She loved Adam Sandler. Ellen [DeGeneres] made her laugh hysterically, [as did] Robin Williams. Now shes up there with our family listening to some of Robin Williams standup acts.
His manager David Steinberg said, ‘You have to talk about him and the USO tours,’ i didn’t know much about it and I wasn’t that excited, to be honest. [But] Robin didn’t publicize this stuff. He just did it. And I was so moved. Just so moved by him wanting to go on these tours. How much it meant for him to be there for the troops and how much it meant to the troops. I have the chills just talking about it. Williams made six USO tours to Iraq, Afghanistan and 11 other countries. He performed for 90,000 troops by the end of his final tour in 2010.
I believe [ the SLA ] saw themselves as kind of a modern-day Robin Hood organization where they are literally going to rob from the rich to give to the poor, their original demand was 70 dollars of groceries for every person on welfare in the state of California in 1974. And somebody ran the math and said, ‘ Well, that’s 400 million dollars. ’ Even for someone like Patty Hearst, that’s not an amount he could come up with. He came up with the first $ 2 million and they demanded more … This demand of food for the people, that’s when Patty started to turn in her tapes … It’s in my opinion they were trying to make a point … The point was you’re rich, many people are poor. They deserve to have a decent quality of life. And you’re the one who’s going to pay for that by giving them food.
