Robin, the Boi Wonder

I owe this post to Chirenon over at Male Protection, who inspired me to create it.  He recently did a post about a few superheroes having a bit of fun.  You can find it HERE

Now, as you all know, I like to accentuate the femininity of the boys in my work.  So, while I loved the idea behind that particular post, the muscular, masculine boy really isn't my cup of tea.  Still, I did enjoy the idea behind it. 

Most of all, though, it got me thinking aabout doing something I've wanted to do for a while now,but just haven't had the time.  I love character of Robin from the DC universe.  Or maybe it's just that I like the idea of him.  I don't know that much about the character, really.  I've just seen a lot of artwork and stories depicting him in quite a feminine fashion.  And I've always wanted to do something with that idea.  So, I guess without further ado, here is my comic book cover of Robin.

I have to say that I'm incredibly pleased with how it turned out.  It's a simple, powerful image of the boy wonder that shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's changed from the athletic, muscular man we all know into something a little bit...curvier. 

I imagine that the story would follow Robin as he deals with the change while trying to continue his life as Robin.  Of course, my mind being what it is, I can't help but think that his changing body would be accompanied by certain needs.

I love this piece simply because of its versatility.  You can apply the circumstance that the picture implies to nearly anything.  It could even work in the Omar Bell Universe (another plan I had originally was to show various superheroes as they dealt with the OBU Great Change). 

So what do you all think?  How would the story go if you were writing it? 


  1. I think that if i was writing it it was like This: the joker as a joke has relesed a New feminizing gas to the air of gotham city thats took a massive affect over the citizens slowly feminizing them and Robin is no different as he is turning slowly into a woman while he ( or shall we say she) tryes to stop the gas to spread to other places. i hope you liked it and i hope its gave some insparation

  2. Being a bit of a comic book geek, my name is a dead give away, I would go with robin being injured while working with the teen titans. Due to circumstances the closest place for him to receive treatment is themyscira, home of wonder womans amazon tribe. Since no man can walk on the island a magical spell has to be placed on him to be turned female. sexy hilarity ensues.

  3. I normally don't go for superhero fan fiction. But I think you've picked the best 'superhero' to work with. Robin seems to be the kind of guy who wants to step out of the sidekick shadow, and this would only make it more difficult for him. I could see a wonderful series of stories of him dealing with this change both in his hero guise (various villains laughing and taking advantage of his more dainty stance) and his alter ego life. As to how he got this new feminizing figure.... I'd save that for the last story as a big climax.

  4. Very striking image and quite well done!

    I might like Robin much more if he was written/drawn this way all the time! Maybe have a jealousy thing between Batgirl and Robin.
