Who is this Protector character? Nothing but a recolored Robin because of a licensing dispute between Keebler and Nabisco (no shit).>The book was sponsored by Keebler, and Robin was at the time licensed by Nabisco so the Protector was used as a substitute. Coinciding with the issue was an anti-drug cartoon television advertisement that may have been a test for a Titans television show. As Robin was already a member of the popular Super Friends he would not have been available
Oh, and as painfully generic as Protector's costume is, you can see some similarities in Robin's change to his first Nightwing costume. Perez must've found *something* in the Protector costume worth salvaging.
(Perez and costume designs are bipolar. They're either spot-on perfect or trainwrecks. His inclination clearly was towards over-designed messes but when kept to clean, simple designs they often worked. Raven is a classic, Nightwing and Jericho were butt-ugly)
