DC New: A Team Of Sidekicks

Among the many experiments of DC, includes a curious title: We Are Robin.

It's very instructional as to how to construct new paradigms beyond the hero-sidekick dynamic. It feels like a mix between Global Frequency and a typical superhero team. However, this team is comprised of those inspired by a singular super-hero.

It also opens up the doors for a more diverse cast, beyond the typically predominant white male template -- and allows mucking about with the key elements of the original super-heroic mythos as a specific past, but with an opportunity to update and modify things.

Perhaps new equipment? New crimefighting approaches? New motivations? And the ability to go on different adventures!
