Batman’s longtime superhero sidekick, Robin, has come out as bisexual.
The sexual orientation of the Tim Drake version of Robin was revealed in the latest issue of “Batman: Urban Legends,” a monthly anthology series, Entertainment Weekly reported.
According to EW, Drake’s friend Bernard asks him on a date in the comic.
“Yeah… Yeah, I think I want that,” Drake responds.
Some DC fans — including LGBTQ+ readers — praised the big reveal:
Tim Drake finally coming out is so inspiring, DC never wanted a queer Robin but after years and years of campaigning from writers and fans it finally happened
