Nightwing (1996-2009) #33
"But I don’t fear them. There’s a big difference."
I miss when Bruce was allowed to smile.
I always liked the idea of Bruce making sure the Bat Kids could handle any number of weapons, including guns. I think that says a lot for how seriously he took safety.
Just a little apropos to agent Grayson and the potential use of guns as per that panel that’s going around. I really hope that gun he holds only stuns.
It’s sad, because pre-New 52 Dick Grayson was a cop in Bludhaven for a few years.
And prior to doing so, Batman told him point blank “You’ll be carrying a gun. How will you handle that?”
Dick handled carrying a sidearm just fine. He was skilled enough to wound, but not to kill. This is the kind of revelation that you would get with the expansive lore of the New 52. Batman and his sons learning how to use guns just in case, but his sons being more comfortable around them.
New 52 Dick likely was never a Bludhaven cop. His life is abbreviate to the point where there’s no place in time he could have been, and that’s a damn shame. There are some great Nightwing stories in that era.
I think Agent Grayson will do just fine. My only complaint is it’s called Grayson. DC is missing out on a great opportunity to have a book that says DICK in huge letters across it’s cover.
