Nightwing is easily one of the most iconic superheroes in the DC Universe (maybe even just in general) and he’s finally gearing up to hit the big screen. Dick Grayson is one of DC’s oldest characters, and as a result he has gone through major changes. The character started as the first ever Robin and has since developed his own heroic mantle as well as temporarily becoming Batman when Bruce isn’t available. He’s one of the few characters in comics audiences have seen grow up and change over time and that has led to a devoted fan base who wants to protect the character.
He’s such a fan favorite that his planned death in the 2005 event Infinite Crisis was scrapped out of fear of angry reactions. Nightwing might have the same skills as Batman, but his optimism and social abilities make him a positive character that other superheroes come to in times of crisis. So if you don’t know too much about the friendliest guy in the DC Universe, just pick up one of these books and dive in!
