Dick Grayson as Batman?

#1 Posted by magicman620 (125 posts) - - Show Bio

Do you think that Dick should remain as Batman over Bruce? I personally like to see Dick stay on as Batman even when Bruce Wayne returns. I really like that first issue front cover where you see that Dick and Damien are the new Batman and Robin. I would find it weird if DC just went backwards. They should just move forward. It like saying Dick Grayson should be back in his old Robin suit. Anyway what do you guys think? These are my thoughts you disagree if you like.

yes. dick taking over as batman seems like a natural step forward. if given a chance, i think he could become as popular to the public as kyle or even wally.

Agreed I like Dick Graysons Batman better, i just hope D.C have the balls to keep him as Batman.

I like Grayson as Batman but I don't wanna see it last too long.
 It'll be too similar to the Steve & Bucky situation Marvel is doing. 
Besides Dick will always be Nightwing to me.  He even still kinda
operates like Nightwing opposed to Batman. His tactics are as
fear based as Bruce's. To put it simply, Dick just is not Batman.

Hell ya everything and everyone on the planet moves on and evolves. This is most truth in the so called bat family, Tim is Red Robin now Stephanie is Batgirl and Damian Robin! 

I thing Bruce if he comes back He be on the Sidelines like oracle he  is getting to old anyway.

I like Dick more as Nightwing...I'd rather have Bruce back as Batman, Dick as Nightwing, Tim as Red Robin, and Damien as Robin

Bruce wtf why would he do that

They should both stay on as Batman.  We have more than one Flash, we have all kinds of Super people and Wonder ladies.  An extra Batman isn't going to destroy the universe.

Dick didn't even want to be Batman and he did so reluctantly because he realized that Gotham needed Batman.
 

The Birth Of The New Dark knight
I think when Bruce comes back he'd be more than willing to hand over the cape and cowl because he knows it belongs to Bruce. It's his mission, not Dick's, to rid Gotham of crime.

I love Bruce as Batman, I love Dick as Batman, but I love even more the dynamic of Dick and Damian!

he needs to stay nightwing

I think Dick has always been a more balanced character.  Bruce is obsessively driven, and has no life beyond his mission to fight crime.  Bruce Wayne is the disguise for him.  Dick has a life outside of the costume, and he's not adverse to showing emotion, which makes him waaayyy more interesting, in my opinion. 
 
However, with the movies being out there, Bruce Wayne will always be Batman.  It would be completely logical for someone to take over the Bat-mantle at some point, but it's only ever going to be temporary.  I wouldn't be surprised if Bruce starts using Lazarus pits at some point, just to keep him from aging too much, so they don't have to keep updating his origin.

I prefer Dick as Batman, but I think a lot of fans would prefer if Bruce took over the role again. I just hope they don't kill off Dick or something stupid like that.

@Primmaster64: no i watched it one g4 thay had a live thing like thay did at e3

I think it'd be more realistic to keep Dick as Batman. Bruce has finally successfully passed the mantle on to someone else. I think it'd be cool to see him use his vast fortune to do some good as opposed to running around beatin up dudes at night.
