It was announced a few days ago that Batman was coming to Smallville #5 for the first time in August (Digitally, and in print in September). Well today TV Guide.com also announced that Batman's sidekick will not be Dick, in fact it will not be a Robin. It will be Stephanie Brown using the Nightwing name.
In the article Bryan Q.Miller says;
"Bruce can be somewhat of an angry man. Stephanie's personality is so can-do and unsinkable and bright, so it's very much on purpose on Bruce's part that he has a good cop going out on patrol with him every night."
Now if you don't mind me I'm going to be YESing Daniel Bryan style until August.
