Tim Drake is a member of the Batman Family who has taken several names. Originally he became the third Robin, following Dick Grayson's ascension to Nightwing and the death of Jason Todd, when he figured out Bruce Wayne's secret identity. Proving himself in combat, he was taken on for training, and would eventually become one of the world's greatest detectives and martial artists. Battle for the Cowl saw him briefly becoming Batman. Grayson took the role permanently and Damian Wayne became Tim's successor as Robin. Taking on his own persona, Drake took the costume of Red Robin. He is a founding member of Young Justice alongside his closest friends Superboy and Kid Flash, and has also been a member of the Teen Titans.

Tim Drake was created by Marv Wolfman and Pat Broderick, first appearing in Batman #436 (1989).
