Note: Rockstar character designer Toks Solarin did this re-design of DC’s Red Robin, a.k.a. Tim Drake. Solarin’s thought-out design would give Batman himself a run for his money when it comes to costume design. – Chris A.
On Solarin’s DeviantArt account he describes the genesis of this design, saying:
This redesign came about because I didn’t like Red robin’s suit, It looked to much like Dr Midnite’s and the cowl just looked like Batman’s without the ears. So I figured put my money where my mouth is and this is what I came up with. The younger generation is always more willing to embrace technology so i thought Red Robin would use tech to enhance his abilities. His armour is made from a very flexible, strong, temperature resistant alloy. I gave him a helmet rather than a cowl for many reasons , it offers more protection, can have a whole host of readouts (like Iron Man) and is extra handy when it comes time for a head butt! I made the cloak jet black as I imagined it was made out of some kind of none reflective material. It’s experimental but it some how dampens light and reflection making it perfect for stealthing in shadows. I kept the cape lining yellow just as a nod to him once being Robin.
