The Boy Wonder is probably the most famous sidekick in comics, but good Christ were his short shorts wildly inappropriate (mostly because he was always with a wealthy, lonely, older man in an skintight animal suit)! Finally somebody at DC did the right thing and gave dude pants. Especially since by this time Robin was a total G. Sure those "pants" are green leggings but he also got real boots. And better gloves. This was a HUGE evolution and we were all relieved we didn't have to see flying nekkid manthigh any longer.
