Dick Grayson might be forced out of his Nightwing ID

At the Chicago ComiCon's Batman panel (via Titans Tower Monitor), they give further signals that the Batman franchise could become more distant and unrecognizable than it already is:
Addressing Dick Grayson’s role in a (hypothetical?) post-Batman role, Daniel said he sees Grayson as “the only B-list character who has a legitimate chance to move up,” and noted that he will have grown a lot through his time as Batman. He hinted Grayson might not return to his role as Nightwing but strike a new path.
And who's going to take his place as Nightwing? Jason Todd, whose own return was meaningless? If this does happen, it'll be very sad. Already, Tim Drake's been taken out of his own role as Robin to become Red Robin, while Damien's needlessly taken his place.

The main problem with this is that it wasn't done for plausible reasons, and more as publicity stunt tactics. For Tim Drake, I think the change of secret ID has been particularly for naught.

And this is why sales of the Batbooks have been on the decline.

I think the problem here is that they gave the name to a Kryptonian hero (Clark and Lois' adopted son), giving a nod to pre-Crisis origins.

Red Robin? Do you suppose that if the decision is made to kill off Tim Drake, he'll die while being eaten by a group of cannibals in a restaurant?

"Red Robin!"


LOL! Only if they eat poor Tim at this place.

Who knows if they'll even manage to think up a good secret ID name for Grayson if they move him into a different role? It's unlikely.

Fuck Didio and his drones! Dick as Nightwing was the very reason I got into comics entirly.

Enter: Graypoopon.
