Do you think he would kill nightwing?

#2 Posted by End_Boss (749 posts) - - Show Bio

What? Just 'cause?

No. Why would you even wonder that? I mean, Todd's a jerk and all, but... No.

#3 Posted by daredevil21134 (14058 posts) - - Show Bio

No.He had a chance to kill him and Damian in Batman and Robin

i think Pre 52 Jason would if it fit in his plan but not just to kill him it would be for something. New 52 no way they changed him into a anti hero i guess,

Not without a reason. I'm sure that if Dick was standing in the way of something that Jason really wanted, then yes, but he wouldn't put a cap in his head for no reason. Of course the better question is COULD Jason kill Dick, and that answer is no.

He's tried in the past before in BTFC if I recall correctly. He's had chances since then but hasn't. Would he as far as New52 goes? No.

Pre-Flashpoint (Like literally right before in Batman and Robin when Jason was really drinking that crazy sauce or in Battle for the Cowl) yeah, but not now. Would kinda go against the entire point of him redeeming himself by working with Batman Inc. Bruce'll forgive him killing random thugs but not his heir.

Unless he surprised Dick he wouldn't be able to anyways.

PREN52 I think he would have. But his character has really changed in the N52. He has really became the person I wanted him to be since he came back from the dead.

#10 Posted by daboyfromsaturn (31 posts) - - Show Bio

I doubt so. I think even Batman would kill him if he did that

I wish he would still try. With all the people Batman has trained, I wish some of them would have turned evil. Jason & Spoiler would have been the perfect chances to have Batman create personally some villains.

Now? Nah.

Damian would just as quick have his head on a spike, delivered personally to Talia.

Agreed.

Try sure, but at the end he will fail, he is pretty much like Deshot he misses, because in some part oif his mind he wants to miss.

Would he kill him? Well we have seen him try in the past. We have seen him try and kill Batman, and almost do it. Do I think he would try, yes. Do I think Dick would win, well we would have to see that fight and how it would turn out. I think Dick is very skilled and can move around alot faster and smoother than Jason can, and if Jason were to use guns, he would have to try and take down one of the greatest acrobats in the world. So it would come down to hand to hand or close combat. If Jason were using blades, or his knife, he would have an advantage, especially with his all-caste training. Dick is in peak physical condidtion, but I think he needs to do some more training and switch it up a bit. As of now, it would be close, but it would all depend on the environment and circumstance

Agreed. He's become a lot more responsible.

I think what I said earlier better qualifies for "could", would eh I dont think so. I think he is over that part of his life, and unless Dick tries to unravel his friendship with the Outlaws, I dont even see a reason for a them to fight. But boy, I would love to see it

#21 Posted by JamesKM716 (2018 posts) - - Show Bio

It's possible yes.

Where his character is at now, NO.

#22 Posted by Teerack (9213 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think so. I think Jason wants to be a better man.

#23 Posted by consolemaster001 (6869 posts) - - Show Bio

No

#24 Edited by regiebravo (1735 posts) - - Show Bio

Pre-52, yes. New-52, no.

#25 Posted by Aahz (299 posts) - - Show Bio

Even in pre-52 I don't think that he would do it. And I think in most of thier fights it was dick who attacked Jason who usually just wanted to talk or to get away.

I think even in "Battle for the Cowl" (where he was imo extremely out of character) his goal was to prove that he is better than Dick and not necessary to kill him. If really had want to, he could have just shot him before they started with the hand to hand combat (used a deadlier trap than the taser).

Jason holds back massively on his fights with Grayson. He could kill him, but he never wanted too.

If Damian can kill Grayson, Todd can as well.

Doubt New52 Jason would kill Dick.

Yup,their fight in Outsiders is another good example of that

#32 Posted by Kramotz (1212 posts) - - Show Bio

killing dick would be like putting a huge target on his back for bruce or damian.

This is pretty much true. Dick has always been the top successor, and I highly doubt that Jason has been "holding back" every time he's lost a fight.
