I like Dick Grayson as Nightwing
I REALLY DO.
At the same time, I'm tired of Nightwing being sidelined in favor of Batman or Tim Drake ("He's just like Batman!! Ooooh!!"). I want him to be his own man while maintaining the same presence he held as Batman. It seems like Dick-as-Nightwing was portrayed most favorably in the heyday of New Teen Titans. I don't want Nightwing to keep Beast Boy around in order to be great.
PLEASE DO EXEMPLARY, KYLE HIGGINS.
I always saw him as Nightwing, even when he was wearing the Bat-suit. However, I also preferred him as the Batman, because it seemed like a logical, natural progression for him. Plus, I really liked the direction Morrison was going with Batman Inc. with Dick staying as Gotham's Batman, and Bruce travelling around the world doing his thing.
@iLLituracy: When Dick was almost killed during Infinite Crisis to make room for Tim....... And, for a while, this websiteDC Editorial didn't let that happen because they realized how much of a Grayson fan-base existed.
I wouldn't allow for this website to grant you your view of different character's popularities. If that were the case, there would be a depressing number of Storm and Deadpool fans out there.
Ahh. It's just that Dick Grayson is supposed to be the heart and soul of the DC Universe, the one crimefigher everyone respects and trusts. Yes, he's not Batman, but I'm not looking for those exact same attributes in Dick. Morrison was the first writer to place Dick in situations as darkly bizarre as his origin story. Synder followed the same route, but added ample layers of noir to Dick's exploits. Both writers matched the early weirdo-noir tone of the earliest Batman and Robin adventures (Morrison more so than Snyder). Nightwing shouldn't be Daredevil. He shouldn't be Spiderman (although they do share that whole "heart and soul" role for their respective universes). And he definitely shouldn't be Batman. The only redeeming Nightwing stories written after the tenure of Devin Grayson (who at least put a few notches under Dick's belt) were handled by Peter Tomasi, but I found those to be rather bland.
I like him as Robin, as Nightwing, and it only made sense to me that HE were the one to step up into the role of Batman...
One of the things I hate most about this DC 'relaunch' is that we don't get to say Dick grow into the role he was basically born into and groomed for.....

Unlike what we saw in the Knightfall storyline. First we saw him become his own man, then prove that he could be the man his father was, and now that he returns to Nightwing we can see him solidify Nightwing as a household name.
You might think it's a long shot, but I'd love for this to be the seed that eventually grows into a Nightwing movie or something.
