Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Robin's Reckoning

I am not convinced we will ever see an amazing live action Robin story. Its not that Robin is an impossible character to present, but I definitely think the idea of a teen sidekick plays out a lot better in animation. In any case, regardless of the medium its doubtful a Robin origin could be done much better than it was in this two-part masterpiece.

From the chilling off screen death of the Graysons at Haley's circus, to Robins clash with Batman and thirst for vengeance, this episode was an emotional roller coaster. The episode also reveals that while Batman's relationship with Robin is a real vulnerability, the partnership also gives him strength. Perhaps Batman's knee injury was over played in the episode, but without Robin by his side, Batman may not have come off the victor here. This masterful episode is one of the series finest for sure.
