This Month in DC History
Tim Drake was introduced in a retelling of Dick’s Origin story in 1989. He soon figured out that Batman and Bruce Wayne had taken the same amount of sick days and on the same days, deducing they were one in the same and blackmailed him to get the position of Robin a couple months later.

What else happened in 1989?

  • Batman got all serious when Grant Morrison and Dave McKean examined the rouges gallery of Arkham Asylum. Sadly Sweettooth didn’t make the cut and he still hasn’t appeared in any comics of Batman.
  • Hawkman got his own comic with a gritty reimagined history of Hawkworld. This story introduced Hawkwoman, who rode her fame into being the main Hawk of the Justice League Cartoon of 2001.
  • The Huntress got her own series and also a new daddy. Now Bruce not only lost his parents but lost his his Earth-2 daughter to a mob boss. Dem’s the breaks Bats.
