Do you think Damian would ever take on the mantle in respect to Dick Grayson?

I don't see it happening but once Bruce comes back who knows who is going to be in what identity

I hope they put Damian in a small box and put him in storage in the Batcave like at the end of Raider's of the Lost Arc

 I would like him to stay with Dick after Bruce comes back. Then when Dick is Nightwing again, Damian becomes his Flamebird

I second that motion!  
 
I don't see Damian becoming Nightwing.  I also don't see Dick relinquishing the title of Batman to go back to Nightwing without a huge dealof fuss. 
 
Thing is, none of us believes that this current arrangement is permanent.  No matter how 'landmark' the death of Batman or Battle of the Cowl seem right now, it still feels like a gimmick.  So even though the characters have only recently taken these identities, we're all trying to second guess what happens when Bruce comes back as Batman...

Most of the stories coming out of this are quiet good, though.

In Batman and Robin, at least.

@Son_of_Magnus: 
 
It's decent, which isn't suprising seeing as it's written by Yost. It's definately better than Robin but I'm just not that interested in Tim to buy the book on a monthly basis.

Ya Tim is my favorite DC character Then Bruce it is partly why but I just like how it is more a detective book I love those kinda books and Ra's is in it that is always good. Dick as Batman is great as well I just can not stand Damian he ruins that book for me

I like Damian, actually, and I also like Dick as Batman.  Bruce is obviously THE Batman, but I'm enjoying Dick's stint whilst it lasts.
The first arc of Batman and Robin isone of my favourites this year; I really dig Morrison and the art was amazing.

@Son_of_Magnus: There's a flashback about every 3 pages, all of which could easily be avoided if Yost would just focus on making a linear plot. That and November's issue actually had a 'remember that time' moment, where Tim went on about the Black Lanterns even though it had absolutely nothing to do with the plot.

I could see Damian taking up the Batman mantle when he's older more than the Nightwing one. I get the impression that while Dick and Damian have this odd 'older & younger brother' rapport going that Damian is still very much loyal to the legacy of Bruce and Batman. That being said I was entirely sceptical of Damian to begin with but I've warmed to him over time, especially in the recent Batgirl issue, my god women of the DCU beware once Damian hits puberty.

i think the only reason he would take up the mantle of night wing is bc he is training him self before becoming batman so he goes out and becomes nightwing as the next step and the last step before becoming batman

i actually thought about this...it would be cool if he did.

In that it's an identity not tied directly to Batman, it might be interesting to see Damian operate as Nightwing, but 1) there would have to be a really good reason for it, and 2) it would have to be approved by Dick.  He created that identity.  It wouldn't be right for someone else to just pick it up.  (On a side note: it's odd that in the comics, Robin is the franchise, and Red Robin - named after a burger chain - is the lone character.)  Although it seems that Damian has been written well enough that he's starting to grow on fans, I think that he barely deserves to be Robin.  Let him get the hang of that, before he goes jumping into some other costume.

If he's going to be Nightwing, he should be like 18.
