Dick Grayson Moments- Dickbats
I am so, so tired of Bruce choosing Jason as Robin being framed as a horrible mistake that got Jason killed.
Bruce didn’t choose him because of impaired judgement.
He chose him because he made him laugh in Crime Alley.
He chose him because he refused to be a criminal.
He chose him because he was ready to foil a robbery on his own.
Bruce chose him because he was brave, and resourceful, and good. He chose him because he knew he would make Batman’s life safer and Bruce’s life brighter. He chose him because Jason needed someone as much as he did.
As for what got Jason killed? The Joker did. All Jason wanted to do was save his mother. Even after she betrayed him. Even after he’d been beaten nearly to death.
Bruce didn’t make the wrong choice. Jason lived and died a hero.
#how can you not grasp this #i mean yes there was an effort by dc itself to vilify jason #’oh he died because he disobeyed batman’ #but that is a crock of shit #he was a teen in an impossible situation and he did what he could #he WAS a hero
