…What teenager talks like this? Good God, Lobdell.
An incredibly intelligent, well-educated one. Seriously, it’s an ignorant to think all teenagers speak a certain way. Or even people in general.
Does no one remember Steve Eurkle? LOOK AT THE ORIGINAL BILLY FROM POWER RANGERS. Seriously. Go find a clip of him talking about anything, it’s “not how a teenager would talk” and he was supposed to be a high school student. Hell, for that matter, I talked like that as a teen because I wanted to be seen as an intelligent grown-up not some dumb kid who spoke poorly.
Let’s not get into the fact this is how Damian has been portrayed as speaking and he’s all of ten. If it’s cool for Damian, it’s cool for Tim. He’s always been the odd duck of the Robins and is a certifiable genius. Of course he’s not going to speak “like a teenager”.
