Even though he thought that he and batman were a good team he and thomas did have some issues.Eventually John left formed his Own team,The teen titans.
The TitansAfter leaving batman John formed his own team of other or former sidekicks.Also while on the team he formed a relationship with an alien named starfire.Eventually he did leave the titans to go back with batman but sometimes would go on missions with them.
TragedyWith being the sidekick of batman comes his allies,and his enemies.These two never had to deal with anything serious until Bane.Even though he was a human he had incredible strength.He almost killed batman.He snaped his spine.At first thomas thought of giving the mantle of batman to robin but did not because he was to young and instead gave it two an unknown man named prime.
Prime and Robin
While prime was a good crime fighter,he was much more rough than the original batman.For instance,once he almost killed a bank robber and john had to stop him.He also failed to recognize robin as his partner.Eventually Thomas healed from his wounds and Fired prime.Making him the batman again.
When Robin was 17, he was shot in the shoulder by the Joker, and this scared Batman into ending his career for good. John realized at that point that he had grown up: he no longer relied on Batman and, in fact, he and the Dark Knight disagreed on crime-fighting methodology. His new-found independence and Titans' duties in New York left less time for his former commitments in Gotham City. He also dropped out of Hudson after only one semester.
NightwingJohn new that he would not be able to keep the mantle of robin so he used some of his old robin costume to create a new suit and a new name:Nightwing.
