How did Batman get robin?

Robin 1

Dick Greyson's parents were killed in a horrible circus accident. Not long afterward he was adopted by million heir playboy, Bruce Wayne. When Dick stumbled on to the secret that Bruce is actually Batman, Bruce trained the young acrobat to become his side kick and dubbed him 'Robin.' Eventually Dick struck out on his own as the super hero known as 'Nighwing.'

Robin 2

In 1983, DC comics began revamping older series and Jason Todd was named the new Robin and given a similar back story. In 1988 The Joker kidnapped Jason Todd and DC comics ran a phone poll where readers could call in and vote for weather or not they wanted the Joker to kill him. The character was killed off by a vote of 5343-5271. He later was resurrected as the anti-hero "The Red Hood.'

Robin 3

Tim Drake was in the audience at the circus when Dick Graysons parents were killed. Later he introduced himself to Grayson (When Grayson had taken the roll of Nightwing) and impressed him with his skill. Grayson and Alfred Pennyworth appealed to Bruce Wayne to become the new Robin. Wayne eventually agreed and trained him as the new Robin. He has since assumed the identity of "Red Robin".

Robin 4

Stephanie Brown was first introduced as the daughter of the lesser Riddler-like super-villain, "Cluemaster". She created the costumed identity "The Spoiler" in order to foil her father's elaborate crimes. She was discovered by Batman and Robin (Tim Drake) and discouraged from continuing her vigilante career. But she did continue and teamed up regularly (occasionally romantically) with Robin. When Tim was forced to retire as Robin by his father, Stephanie briefly took up the role of Robin. After a run-in with Black Mask and her identity was compromised, she faked her own death and later re-appeared first as Spoiler and then Batgirl.

Robin 5

Damian Wayne is the biological son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul. Gestated in an artificial womb, he was trained by the League of Assassins until about the age of 7 or 8, when Talia introduced him to Batman. His lethal methods were eventually reformed and he assumed the role of Robin. As of this writing, he has recently been killed by an older clone of himself.

What happened to Chuck Knoblauch?

Being a Minnesota Twins fan, I have often wondered the same thing. As far as I can tell he is out of pro baseball altogether. You have to wonder if he has turned down minor league deals because I'd think someone would give the guy another shot. I suppose he has a big pile of cash to sit on at home. He was a great player with the Twins but the best contribution he made after 1991 was demanding a trade. We shipped the complainer off to the Yankees and got some great players in return (Guzman, Milton, and Buchanan). Soon after he became fixated on throwing the ball into the box seats on the first baseline whenever a routine grounder was hit to him. He's in his second year of retirement, after refusing a minor league assignment in 2003. Here's an April 2004 article from the NY Times: Current and Ex-Yankee United by a Coach By JACK CURRY BOSTON, April 16

The Avengers

How did The Avengers die?

The Avengers die because of Doctor Pym's and Tony Stark's creation Ultron. Iron Man and Henry Pym created Ultron to be a force for peace, but its programming evolved coming to think that the only way to truly bring order to Earth was to control it. Then it attacked the Avengers killing most of them (Captain America, Wasp, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Giant-Man, and Black Widow). Before they died however, Iron Man gathered their children and took them to a safe place in the Arctic Circle. Later, when James accidentally activated the Iron Avengers, Ultron detected the energy source, found the Iron Avengers, and took control of them. He later captured Iron Man and imprisoned him in the Citadel. The children rescued him and escaped with some help of Hawkeye's son Francis and the Scavengers (all that remains of humanity). In the desert, James turned on the ship that he, his friends, Iron Man and Betty escaped in to lure Ultron to the Hulk. The evil robot arrived and battled the Hulk, knocking him out. He then blasted at James with a energy blast which nearly killed the boy. The Hulk grabbed Ultron, beat him and ripped him in half. When Ultron started to rebuild himself, Torunn - daughter of the absent Thor and Sif_(Marvel_Comics) - grabbed the two separated pieces and threw them into space where Ultron could not rebuild himself.

Why did Archie Bunker call his wife dingbat?

It was his personality, which at times was abrasive and for the most part, difficult to get along with. (And, to be fair, Edith sometimes was kind of a dingbat, which is really somewhat of an affectionate term compared to "meathead", which is what he called his son-in-law.)
