Tim Drake is Batman's newest protege after Dick Grayson became Nightwing and after the death of the second Robin, Jason Todd. Unlike Grayson, Drake is an extremely serious student of the heroic arts. He still lacks confidence but as a natural leader, Drake is determined to prove himself. He became Robin at the start of Team Year Five. He later joined the Team and was assigned the designation B-20. His weapon of choice is a collapsible bo staff with a taser option. On February 17th, Team Year Five, Robin reported to Mount Justice to take part in the search for Dr. Sandsmark. On December 1st, Robin was present for a mission briefing at Mount Justice but had to return to Gotham City to patrol with Batman. At 16:57 Eastern Standard Time (EST), Batman and Robin received an update on the Metropolis crises from Red Tornado then continued with their investigation.
On January 1st, Team Year Six, Robin was assigned to Delta Squad and distracted Clayface during a mission while Superboy administered a special pill that immobilized him. On January 4th, Nightwing gave Robin his first assignment as a field leader under orders to not take unnecessary risks. Robin's debut proved fruitful as Gamma Squad captured a Krolotean, freed several human prisoners, and escaped the destruction of the Krolotean's New Orleans base. Robin participated in the Malina Island raid on January 6th and was present when some of the Justice League departed for Rimbor on January 26th. On February 28th, Robin met Impulse along with Nightwing and Beast Boy. On March 30th, Drake and Barbara Gordon infiltrated a prison of kidnapped teenagers in Star City. Bumblebee hid in Drake's jacket. They blended in and were transported to the Reach Ship with no question. Drake and Gordon then proceeded to free several kidnapped teenagers.
On April 8th, 09:02 EDT, Robin learned he would lead Alpha Squad on a mission to covertly investigate LexCorp Farms' new partnership with the Reach. Several samples of Reach-enhanced produce and alien additive were retrieved but Arsenal went off mission and blew up a laboratory. In a losing battle against Black Beetle, Robin was prepared for the worst but they were saved by the intervention of Green Beetle of Mars. Robin conveyed the samples to Nightwing and only reported some difficulty with Arsenal. On May 26th, Robin was assigned to Delta Squad with Batgirl. They manned the Bio-Ship and provided cover fire for Captain Atom, Captain Marvel, and Green Beetle. On June 14th, Robin was part of squad that provided support to Batgirl, Impulse, Rocket, and Zatanna against Green Beetle during a Bialyan operation. On June 19th, Robin took part in the Santa Prisca mission. He took the place of a League of Shadows soldier along with Impulse and Wonder Girl. On June 20th, Robin was assigned to Tau Squad with Wonder Girl for the attacks on the Magnetic Field Disrupters. Due to the possibility of Earth being destroyed, Wonder Girl summoned up the courage to kiss Robin. They started dating after the crisis passed but kept it secret at first.
