Nightwing Rebirth #1 | The Chosen Path...
It was revealed when they went back to batcave with Damian Wayne that there was a bomb planted by the Court of Owls in his nose, which was removed by Dick Grayson using the device he acquired during his last mission as a secret agent. It was nothing how the dynamic between Damian Wayne and Dick Grayson has grown and don’t you just miss that pairing from ‘Batman & Robin?’
It’s quite noting how Dick Grayson as a character has grown from a former son of a travelling circus to Batman’s original sidekick. In all that has happened in Grayson’s life he must be the only Batman character who has aged. Well save that to Jayson Todd and Tim Drake having the Robin mantle and going off becoming their characters. But it’s Dick Grayson who continued to grow from all this characters that makes him a favorite among long time fans who have seen him as Robin, a founding member of the Teen Titans, a former Batman, and now a former spy returning to the character everyone has known since 1984 sans the giant collars.
Now Dick Grayson adds espionage as one of his talent in the Nightwing identity that makes him more than just a superhero. He couldn’t be Batman for now, but Nightwing is all he is and more. This issue also give the dynamic between Bruce Wayne a fresh look in their relationship being the ‘eldest son’ and ‘big brother’ to the current Robin which makes him more interesting to catch up on reading than before.
His next mission now as Nightwing is taking on the Court of Owls in their latest incarnation revealed in the last pages. So the myth of Nightwing is also given reason how he got the name and its from a Kryptonian story that long time fans has heard before, but this time it makes it clear he’s back and ready for the next adventure.
