@moneyshotz: No Dick just grow up and he didn't like that Bruce was treating him like a kid,Dick had many responsibilities(teen titans,college) and Bruce wanted him more at his side!They had a fight and he left!He became nightwing and batman brought in a new robin Jason Todd.

And no they don't dislike each other

Nope.

o does that make him dislike bruce cause it was hard for them to work together

No. A recurring theme with Grayson is to "not disappoint" Bruce. There's no hatred.

he would never wanna be batman

Hardly has anything to do with hatred.

Your mixing up cartoons and comics. The Dick/Babs/Bruce BS went dont during The New Batman Adventures cartoon.

as for Dick disliking Bruce I'd say far from it.

I think it is safe to say for a while Dick resented Bruce.

In the Nightwing comics he hated going to Bruce for help and really had to swallow his pride when he had to. I seem to remember with the destruction of Bludhaven, Alfred patched up Dick and Bruce & Dick had a mild tiff. They've never disliked each other and would move mountains to help the other but both are stubborn and very prideful. Since the New:52 Bruce and Dick have been a lot chummier than before.

I'd say it was the same thing you'd see between a father and son, with a son trying to get away from his father and live his own life, but still being there for his father whenever he was needed. Dick's pretty much always been the bigger man between the two i'd say. Bruce is the one who always has problems asking people for help. Whenever things were getting out of hand and Dick could make it, he'd show up to help, and Bruce would pretty much brush him off.

Your mistaken on the Bruce/ Barbara part, that only happened during Batman TAS, during Zero Hour(which involved alternate reality Bruce's and Barbara) and Thrillkiller. None of that's the main DCU. He far from hates him, he loves him he's his adopted father. The extent of this was shown when he told Bruce he wouldn't trade his time with him for even having his parents back. He hardly hates Bruce, he still frequently works with him willingly and extremely well from years of practice.

Everyone pretty much nailed the answer here. I'd just want to through in one more piece. If anything, and that's a big if, Grayson hates the idea of becoming Bruce. He sees them as very different in many regards, and there is a running theme across DC media that both Bruce and Dick worry about Dick ending up just like Bruce, which no one really wants to happen.
