    Don't mind if that's mixed in with globe trotting [prefer it actually]. I like Bludhaven cos I like Dick having his own city that's his responsibility.

    Gotham is fine but don't like that as much since that's shared by soooo many heroes.

    I liked the Prince Of Gotham idea that was planed by Higgins I believe before Grayson happened. Sounded really interesting. I was really looking forward to that
    I'd prefer Titans Tower, as it serves as a center for younger heroes and Dick being the most well known of the group, serves not only as a mentor, but the face of the group as well. It also gives him plenty of characters to bounce off of, both hero and villain alike. Not to mention, he doesn't feel so cut off from the rest of the world.

    If Titans is its own independent team, and isn’t a demeaning shit show, I guess I could live with it. But I hate the idea of Dick or his generation as the teachers for younger heroes or “the next generation”. He’s not a camp counselor or a regulated prop for new guys.

    Honestly though, something akin to a camp counselor would be funny. As long as he also does his own thing in his own book. Stationed at Titans tower and big brothering pretty much everyone from Tim's generation and younger would be alright with me.

    Still really enjoying the idea of Dick moving back to the manor again for a bit. Having Babs (or other love interest) over and getting interrupted by Damian or Bruce or Alfred. Those little scenes would crack me up.

    Not appose to the manor either cause I think Dick is often portrayed as too old, so anything with him that tries to be contemporary with today I’m game for. Though not sure the lifespan on it.

    Yeah, I'm currently enjoying a little head cannon pitch that starts with him moving into the manor as like a 23-25ish year old feel and then gradually moving him into running Batman Inc (maybe with a name change) out of either Wayne Tower/Bat Bunker or Haly's Casino in Amusement Mile.

    Having his own city and base doesn't have to cut him off from the rest of the DCU, he can mentor and have regulars and guests stars he can bounce off of in Bludhaven especially if they add the globe trotting idea to the mix. Heck he can have younger heroes, helpers [the skull Girls] to cover his city when he needs to be away or have him call in other batfamily to cover when he's away. added bonus of improves the piss poor sense of family we currently have.

    Being responsible for a city isn't just about location it's about levels [ranking/tier] and maturity as a hero.

    Not every solo hero has a city they are responsible for.
    not every solo hero is capable has what it takes to be bear such a burden.
    Not every solo hero is strong enough [mentally] or is willing to take on such a task especially when the city doesn't champion them

    It says a lot about the few heroes in that category. It should also mean that he can't be at the Batman's beck and call [less available] which makes him different from the rest of the family. It should but the Bat office and DC have no sense.

    Having a city shouldn't limit he's connections or world. All it takes is creativity and a writer who gets it.

    I want Nightwing to have his own fleshed out and developed corner of the DCU with a stable cast and even a sidekick separate from the batman world just like other characters of his calibre have. He might not be in the JL but he's done more for Dc and makes more money than half the characters in the league.


    Hope this has no errors was in a rush

    I think it would be cool if Nightwing gets a spaceship. His name screams coolest spaceship in the universe.

    For it. Pretty sure there was supposed to be a Dick and Kori in space series before the bat office got their hands back on him in the mid 90s.

    I've always been more a fan of the idea of Jason being an intergalactic bounty hunter.

    He's not even a local bounty hunter.

    Altered version of how Dick got an idea to become Nightwing in this universe.

    That's literally what all the vigilantes do. Bounty hunters though, specifically target those with a bounty on their head though.

    I mean yeah. Just because he isn't one now doesn't (on its own) negate the potential of it fitting the character and being a cool direction/story. Jason's look from the early n52 would fit the scifi aesthetic like a charm. His gray morality and willingness to use guns give us a character that I could see being selective about when bounties he took. I couldn't see him as an indiscriminate Boba Fett type. He'd need to be the type that chooses his targets carefully, going after outlaws who have caused harm to kids, run drugs into areas that have ruined communities, stuff like that. Functionally he'd be a bit like a federal marshal, but with autonomy to choose his own cases (And get paid for it).

    And I'm not sure its fair to boil down waht Godlike is saying to "what all vigilantes do." The way that Jason used to hunt down criminals was fairly different than how, say, Bruce had gone about it.

    This was basically my thought, yeah!
