Year of the Villain: Good-Bye Nightwing. Hello [SPOILERS]!

SPOILERS for Nightwing #66

When Nightwing took a bullet to the head, fans knew that things had changed for Dick Grayson’s role in the DC Universe. It didn’t take long for fans to discover the true cost: that Dick survived the brain injury, while his past as Robin and Nightwing did not. But nobody would have expected the new twist, seeing Dick Grayson embrace the role held by one of Batman’s cruelest enemies.

The story of Dick — sorry, Ric Grayson starting fresh as a cab driver with no memories of his Batman Family past was, is, and forever will be controversial. Dick abandoning his family, trying to ignore his heroic heart, and donning a new costume are all open to criticism. But it seems that was all just an appetizer, now that Batman’s former partner and ward is going to accept the family legacy he previously refused… as the new Talon, enforcer of The Court of Owls. Yes, really. (via Screen Rant)

Nightwing #66 will be available from your local comic book shop on November 20th, 2019.
