    Yeah, if it's less a big mass of All Titans Ever, and instead an eight-person team of Dick, Donna, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Roundhouse, Crush, Red Arrow and Kid Flash that seems a very different thing....

    Yeah, I'm torn - on the one hand, it seems to be objectively a good thing to close out the arc properly after two years - take the time to tie everything off, just as a general principle. On the...

    Thanks of the heads-up, haven't been regularly picking that up since Russell left.

    Woo! They've been leaning *heavily* on the fact that the current Justice League arc with him will have an impact on the end of the event, so hopefully this is a sign of that importance.

    I can't remember who it was who speculated that "Better Than Batman" was a repurposing of the plans for a later arc of "Grayson", with Tiger in the Raptor role. Charismatic older man who's not from...

    Whilst I agree, my new hot take is that next time they redo the League's origin then Dick should have been with it from the start. Batman And Robin, The Dynamic Duo.

    I've not been reading 'Tec - is it worth picking up this week for Dick/a story that looks like Dick will be a support player in? Or is basically a cameo?

    Oh, I hadn't thought of that - but I hope so. I've really enjoyed Bendis' run on the Superman books, but it's fair to say it's been divisive without raising sales enough to get away with that. A...

    Glad that Future State Nightwing is still Dick.

    Also, wider Future State thoughts? I expected to hate it, and I don't.

    You know, it occurs to me - a good way to quantify the overall lack of emotional engagement with this run?

    I genuinely think Tynion doesn't know what "a joke" is - what with the way he had the Joker talk about them, and now he treats Punchline's name like its something esoteric and meaningful.

    Fully agreed - and, to my mind, it ties back to the heresy I posted a little while ago... Dick loses more than he gains by having an ongoing solo series.

    DC's relaxation into not needing all its characters to be in the same universe onscreen is good news for Dick - the way I see it, there are two paths to a Nightwing movie.

    So, do we think we'll still get Snyder's Nightwing story? When was the last time he mentioned it?

    On the one hand, it sounds like exactly the kind of project reports of the Big DC Shuffle would...

    I said it at the time and I'll say it again, that solicit is not written to a professional standard. Symptomatic of the whole thing.
