SDCC 2010: 3-Minute (Fan) Expert: Dick Grayson
" @DEGRAAF: Fair play. I was just pointing out that for a source of information and fact, it's not a good one. (you can post anything on there) . No offence meant. And I have no idea what you mean about my first sentence guys. ;) "
its ok, no offense was taken
" @Calvin: just in case you were still wondering, he got the name from a kryptonian superhero superman was telling him about, this was during the time dick and bruce parted ways and he was looking for some guidance from superman :D "
No! No! NO! That. is. a. retcon! And that Nightwing looked like a cross between Northwind and Hawkman!
The original (and far cooler) origin of the name lies in the original Nightwing and Flamebird, aka Superman and Jimmy Olsen. They were partnered as N&F in Kandor, as a super-science Batman & Robin, with Supes as the Batman (Nightwing), and Olsen as the Robin (Flamebird). Grayson chose the name Nightwing, because it allowed him to pay homage to both of his mentors with one name.
The retcon name origin is a travesty of that historical symmetry.
" @Calvin: just in case you were still wondering, he got the name from a kryptonian superhero superman was telling him about, this was during the time dick and bruce parted ways and he was looking for some guidance from superman :D "Being a Superman geek I knew that, my point is important issues are missing!
" Can someone help me ? Didn't Batman lead the Outsiders' on more then one occasion at 1:34 it said he never lead a team. "I think Mark Waid was referring to Batman not actually leading the Outsiders. He would oversee them but maybe didn't actually lead them like Dick lead the Titans. Anyone want to debate with Mr. Waid over this?
" @DEGRAAF said:so which comic is this from?" @sora_thekey said:
"LOL! I am not an avid DC reader so I was left intrigued.... Were Catwoman and Dick ever together?"i dont believe so. Cat Woman has alway been in to Bruce. Dick has always seen her as a aquitence. "
