Hey, Dick fans. Looks like the first Battle of the Week on this website is featuring Daredevil vs. Nightwing. Here's the information thread:

Here's the voting thread:

Here's your chance to show off your Dick knowledge to people outside of the confines of his character forum. Right now, he's getting his butt beat pretty bad in the poll, but don't let that deter you guys and girls from standing up for him. Post scans, use logic, and debate with passion in an effort to show that Dick is capable of beating one of Marvel's toughest street-levelers!

@knightrise: The first instinct is usually the correct one. As a Nightwing fan, you know this in your heart.

DD has won this in every thread I've seen on CV and elsewhere. Still going with the Gray Son.

Just voted, Dick's behind by about 11%. I think many may choose Daredevil due to his enhanced senses.

#16 Edited by Alak (926 posts) - - Show Bio

Dick is now only 10% behind Daredevil. Keep the good fight going! We have until Friday!

So I'm going to play devil's advocate here but why does DG win? If it were popularity, I'd definitrly be all in for Nightwing (and I'm a HUGE grayson fan). If this were Dick pre-reboot I'd be more confident blindly saying "Nightwing FTW". I don't doubt his athleticism matches or surpasses DD. I don't doubt that he is better equipped. But I'm no sure about other advantages. Honestly, I haven't see Grayson do anything in the reboot (in terms o combat) that has really wowed me (unless we talk about DG vs street thugs). He was trained by Batman but I don't see that meaning much right now. And I would give him the "reacts on the fly and makes excellent choices" advantage but does this even apply to the N52 version? The only thing I see that really makes me confident that DG could pull this off easily is his "new" ability to read body movement. I think that could really give him an edge.

Thus, .....I am leaving it up to you guys to convince me! Remember, I am already biased toward Dick but just need some concrete answers

For the record, you've done an admirable job of debating. If NW were to squeak out a win you deserve a ton of credit. To deny you a follow would be criminal my good man. Nightwing_Beyond was on point too.

Aww poop.

I guess I didn't know there were any awesome Nightwing fans left in the world left to meet. :)

Logic tells me to vote for one of them, but bias and favoritism told me to vote for the other...bias won, go Nightwing!

@smoothjammin:

Thanks! I do my best to keep people informed, since most of them still think of Nightwing as Robin 2.0 (or Bat-lite).

#25 Posted by Alak (926 posts) - - Show Bio

Well Daredevil officially won, but good job to everyone who posted and voted. Not only did you guys show faith, but you displayed some pretty good knowledge for those who aren't familiar with Dick. *high fives for everybody*

Nightwing gave a good account of himself too and probably made some new fans. I can't complain, dude went down swinging. Couldn't ask for anything less from our underdog!
