I'm wondering why Robin is on the Outsiders when the rest of the batfam/his former squad is on the Team? I'm guessing Robin is the only bat protege known to the public, but I'd think Tim's skills would be more useful on the covert team.

Tim's skills would be useful on any squad. But Robin has been a public hero since Dick's days, and Tim felt he could do more good by being with the Outsiders.

But this question allows me to point something out that I think Brandon and I thought was obvious but given some fan response might not have been. Some fans seem to believe there's some kind of hard divide between the Team and the Outsiders. That if you're with one group then you can't even hardly communicate with the other group. That's simply not the case. Some members of both squads live at the Premiere Building. They're all friends to varying degrees. And it would just be silly not to exchange intel and/or help each other out. For example, you saw Looker and Terra - who are both Outsiders - attempt to help Tigress and the Team with the Cassandra Savage/Onyx Adams situation at Green Arrow's Vault.

So if the Team required Tim's skills, of course he'd help. Even go on a mission with them, if necessary.
