I have always liked the Idea of nightwing. There is definint dynamic there between Bats and NW, very like to a father son relationship that is strained.
Dad wants him to be like him or better but want to be in control. Son Wants to be himself but better than dad.

Good stuff.
Dick has some natural ability that he honed in teh circus, added to that is what he leaned about combat and critical thinking form Bruce.

I really wich they woud both get over themselves. and work together more. I also thin Dick needs more gadgets.

BTW I used to read the Dethstroke series I never read anough of the NW one to come accross the connection. I always though he was a Kind of good guy. I don know he is Old.

Whats the deal with that?

Nightwing can be a bit cooler sometimes... His style has a lot more flair to it and he outclasses batman in agility and acrobatics without question. Batman cannot flip like Nightwing does (nor does he need to)...

He doesn't have a symbol because he doesn't work like bruce... he works on pure street cred, not on superstition and fear like Batman does... also he's not nearly as Batman-like as Midnighter or Black Panther or (name some Batmany people)... he doesn't have powers like batman and he uses martial arts like batman, but Green Arrow and every other action movie hero do the same thing.

Nightwing isn't anymore Batman-like than Jet-Li, in my opinion (or at least, most of jet-li's characters...)

edit: nightwing doesn't have powers just like batman doesn't have powers...

Nightwing uses martial arts like batman uses martil arts

Green Arrow, and a large number of action movie heroes also have no superhuman powers in addition to using martial arts... This does not make them batman-like...

But, to be honest, Batman DOES have powers, I mean... How else do you explain him mastering every martial art in the world by age 17?

Trust me, Nightwing got fired.....he got shot by the Joker and Batman got worried about his safety, so he fired him from being Robin. What's really ironic is that it's his replacement, Jason Todd, that was actually killed as Robin.

I think Bruce Wayne is arguably a little nuts and definitely Obsessive. I think The crazy drive enabled him to apply himself Madly to everything he does and Become superior or extraordinary at whatever he devotes himself to.

Kind of like the joker being a fruitcake also kind of allows him to be a criminal genius.
Lex Luthor doesn't have powers does he?

besides I think "mastering every martial art in the world by age 17" is a bit much. There are thousands of variations of kungfu just in China, a couple hundred versions of Karate. Then all the western fighting arts Filipino and indonesian arts.

I think you are right. If they want to stick to the idea that he mastered them all then thye HAVE to say he's not a normal Human. Just not possible.

Ok I have the deathstroke the terminator miniseries from years ago and he didn't seem like a bad guy. Was I just too young to get it or what? He's like a hundred years old or something too.

Back in "The New Teen Titans" in the '80's, Terminator's son tried to become a merc like his father. Taking the name The Ravager, he accepted a contract on the Titans in exchange for being given powers similar to his father's by the criminal science group, The Hive. However, the powers were too much for his body to handle and he the powers killed him while he fought the Titans. Deathstroke took over the contract and began hunting the Titans in his son's place. With the help of Terra, he captured all but Dick. Having given up the Robin identity, Dick became Nightwing in order to track Deathstroke and free his teammates.
