Ever since he's gone back to the Nightwing alias this is the only question that's bothered me. How can he not be on a team?? If the Justice League won't take him then surely the JSA or Stormwatch? JLI even? It's the least he deserves for DC retconning the original Teen Titans era. I'd like to see a revived JSA with Dick on the forefront alongside the likes of Powergirl, Wally West, Dr. Midnite etc etc but that's just me.

Yeah, I'd like to see something of the like, with Nightwing leading a team that has Powergirl, Wally West, Beast boy and some others... Don't know if it has to be the JSA, but it could be. But he really needs to be in a team. Really needs to.

Why not? It would be a nice change of pace lol
 
Seriously though, it goes without saying that NW is a premier hero these days. It only makes sense DC exploit those natural talents that set him apart from his mentor, traits that distinguished his popularity in the 80's. Dick works off intuition, he relies on impeccable timing and steadfast reflexes to win the day.  Where Batman is more or less a general, known for his great strategy and meticulous planning Nightwing is like the field leader you send in there to command a strike team. Unlike Bruce he isn't afraid to use a gun or make the tough choices.(Dick has been known to use lethal methods before, in the Outsiders and in the recent JLA, he's also beaten the Joker to death and condemned Deathstroke to hell in Titans Annual, admitting he should've killed Slade years ago much to the dismay of Donna) If you can't put him on the same team as Bats than atleast place him on an equal platform, in a prestigious group like  the JSA. A famillal setting is just what the Doctor ordered. Plus, they need a few fresh faces now that the revamp means shelfing most of the original founding members. Out with the old in with new...can we atleast get a Wally West/Dick Grayson team up ppl?

I'd like a book just called Titans, with Dick as the leader. And it be consisting of Dick, Donna Troy, Connor Hawke, Wally West, Kyle Rayner, Power Girl, and Zatanna.

That sounds really good actually. You're line-up is especially intriguing, because I can see all of those characters meshing so well. Gonna have to pick up alot of the slack from the current Titans book.

Well with the "re-re-boot" of the DCU maybe Dick/NW will get to lead the Teen Titans again. I just hope they don't make him Robin again, he needs to stay NW.

I don't think he'd ever go back to being Robin, and I don't think he'd ever be on the Teen Titans again, he's too old, and Tim's going to be the leader of the Teen Titans.

Apparently Wally West and Donna Troy dont exist in DCnU....at least not yet.
He should be on JLI. It would make more sense than Batman being on both teams

I wouldn't mind him on the JLI.
But I definitely think it's only a matter of time before somebody writes Wally into a story, he's not gonna be erased, he has too much of a following.
But Donna, I fear for her. And hopefully she makes it.

I don't mind if he goes solo for a little while, but I eventually want to see him run a team, otherwise you're really spoiling his potential. Dick is the most complete crimefighter in Batmans stead, Tim is something special, but this guy... he was born to be a leader. He possesses all the tools to get the job done and doesn't lack in any department skillwise. Who else can identify with younger heroes and hang with the grown ups like Nightwing? He's cool with EVERYONE, JSA got his back(frequent team ups), he's a well respected member of the Justice League(leader), Ex-Outsiders(leader), former Titans(leader), former Teen Titan(leader), one-time JLA taskforce(stand in for bats), c'mon. That's an impressive resume. Knowing that, you can't just outcast Nightwing from the rest of the DCU then throw Batman on nearly every team roster..

I would like to see him get a side kick. I mean since he became batman then stopped he has become Bruce's equal at nearly everything except acrobatics and speed at which he has surpassed him. He deserves to have a side kick i was thinking maybe phoenix? He is another batman so he deserves to have a robin.

I didn't mean anything like that. I was thinking more like a red robin age side kick who works solo but is being advised, taught and goes on patrol with him.

As an antagonist/anti-protragonist (for lack of a better term) okay, but not actual part of the team.

I'd like him to make his own team of Outsiders:

  • Nightwing
  • Power Girl/Donna Troy
  • Wally West
  • Kyle Rayner
  • Damage
  • And you get the idea. Lower class A-Listers, with some B listers in the mix.

Have they said that Batman on JLI is Bruce? I think it would be hilarious if Dick were doing double duty as Nightwing and Batman on the JLI to increase the Batman mystery. That or be part of the JLA once they catch up to the present. The founders are there but other people have been shown in the promotional art like Element Woman and Mera so maybe Nightwing can be in there too.

Holy smoke, Vamp that's an excellent line-up! I'd never even heard of Damage up until you mentioned him. Dude is serious business. I'd just throw in a couple intangibles like changing the team name to Justice League Taskforce(A splinter faction of JLA in charge of special ops) and providing cavalry for other groups. While JLI handles the covert stuff, JLT can take on cases that call for established, versatile heroes.

That actually crossed my mind on several occasions. The JLI batman definitely looks and sounds like Bruce so idk.

@SmoothJammin: Yeah I just re-read JLI and it's definitely Bruce. Though it would be hilarious if Bruce swapped out Dick with the JLI on occasion.

@SmoothJammin: Yeah, he was part of the original Titans volume. Him, Jessie Chambers, Argent, Starfire among with the original 5 TTs. It was pretty badass. The reason I didn't mention Chambers is because we already have Wally in there and Argent is kinda meh and GL is already there, so the need isn't great.

Honestly, DC's wasting the character a bit if they don't put him on a team. At the very least a few team ups are in order for our boy.

#45 Posted by Onemoreposter (4047 posts) - - Show Bio

Give him the Outsiders again. The team could consist of the characters who got shafted by the new 52 and the last decade/silver age revival of DC comics continuity. I'd like to see Dick, Wally, and Donna as the teams big three.

Something I dug up from bleeding cool while frequenting the Nightwing fansite. Apparently Donna and Wally still exist but since DC's focus is on de-aging the classic heroes, their returns have been put on hold. Reading this helps me embrace the idea that any sort of team book involving the original titans is still very plausible. It's good to know that fans outcries are finally being heard. A reimagined Outsiders book works just fine.

#47 Posted by BatMark_ (49 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think DC realise the potential of Nightwing. I want to see him leading his own team, heck, I want him leading the Justice League in the future!

But Seriously, Bruce even said himself that Dick was a natural born leader, he commands respect from those around him. Did anyone read battle for the cowl? He single handedly set up a network of heroes to protect Gotham when Bruce was gone. Geoff Johns even went as far as to say that Nightwing dying would have a greater effect on the DCU then Batman dying, as he has so many links to people in that universe. Just cut the bulls**t DC and get the man his own team!

I hate the idea that people actually want The Outsiders to become a dumping ground for heroes who didn't make it into the new 52, no disrespect meant. Wally is THE Flash and I honestly don't know too much about Donna but the Outsiders (like every other team in the DCU) has a theme. And Wally, Kyle, and Power Girl (from what I know of her) do not fit that theme.
