  1. Kid - The poem is a dramatic monologue by Robin the Boy Wonder, the loyal sidekick to Batman in the comic strips, television programmes and films.

    with boredom, but unable to do anything. * This poem contains various examples of slang, for example naval slang - wander leeward (line 2), British slang - the ordinary word motor (line 11) for the amazing Bat mobile, and American slang - baby (line 24). The mixture of styles adds humour and perhaps helps to illustrate the growing-up process: Robin is trying out a mixture of things. * - There is a serious message behind the comedy - we are encouraged to consider whether heroes and hero-worship can really sustain young people growing up.
