Robin is a real boy, a superhero in the DC Comics universe. Robin has long been a fixture in the Batman comic books as Batman’s partner. The team of Batman and Robin is commonly referred to as the Dynamic Duo or the Caped Crusaders. Conceived as a vehicle to attract young readership, Robin garnered overwhelmingly positive critical reception, doubling the sales of the Batman related comic books.
