The Arkham Sessions Podcast, Episode #118: “SDCC Panel: The Psychology of Robin- Batman’s First Sidekick”

What makes Dick Grayson different from Bruce Wayne? At first glance, it appears that both superheroes experienced very similar childhood traumas. Would sharing this trauma – witnessing the murder of their parents – lead to the same psychological outcome? What mitigating factors would impact recovery and personal growth following such tragedies? Is Batman attempting to create a different, perhaps healthier version of himself, or is he grooming Robin to be just like him? In this special episode, we explore the psychology of the character Dick Grayson. Enjoy this authorized recording of our 2018 Comic-Con panel, featuring our very special guest, Mr. Loren Lester, the voice of Dick Grayson!
