    I like the idea of Dick having to take over Wayne Enterprises for awhile but totally avoiding doing the job of CEO. Kinda like how Bruce is in the Nolan Trilogy where he's only interested in the R&D department and avoiding the actual day to day of the office. Plus I kinda want to see a superhero in a workplace setting, there isn't anything like that out right now.

    I think it would be an enjoyable aspect to explore, it has the same kinda fish out of water/Dick would never do this by choice that being a spy has.

    I think in Tony Daniel's run when he's Batman, Dick has to go meetings, and he's not into it. Mainly because he just dealt with... Scarecrow, I think? So he's not exactly healthy.
    In Tomasi's run, they have to go to a gala, but he's teaching Damian that it's necessary.
    In Streets of Gotham, he's definitely not into it because he has to appear friendly with Tommy Elliot.
    I forgot which book, but he can act as The Playboy's Rich Kid when meeting with Sonia Zucco. Snyder's, I think.

    I do enjoy seeing Dick put into situations he's not comfortable with, that go against his nature. Being a CEO definitely fits. And I have no issue with him having to step up at Wayne Enterprises.....for the short term.

    Long term I want him to have his own world, and be less reliant on Bruce's mythology. So if you were to make Dick the CEO of a company for more than a short-term storyline I'd rather see it be something like Dick running Haly's circus/casino or something.

    I would love to see Dick at the head of Wayne Enterprises, that kind of stuff is the most fun you could really have with civilian Dick imo. Not enough people lean into how James Bondian Batman can be (although it seems like Hill is somewhat leaning into it his Outsiders book?), but one thing that's always been true about Dick as Batman and in Grayson is how much he embodies that style of Batman (and Robin). Anything that pushes us back towards that is great imo.

    Anyways, yeah. Bendis ignored GA Rebirth and DK Metal like he did with Superman Rebirth.
    Her newest suit is kinda lame, it was completely ruined for me when someone brought up the fact that her bat symbol looks more like a gold-yellow bra on top of her suit than just a symbol.

    That huge symbol is the only thing I really like about the new suit.

    Is it just me or does it seem like it's always drawn especially skin tight? Like more so than usual for heroines.

    I think it depends on the artist. In her solo it's about as skintight as most female hero costumes but artists like Fabok or Mann draw it extremely skintight.

    Loathe as I am to admit it, I can understand the perspective behind the Burnside costume eschewing spandex.

    To this day I still have no idea what was wrong with reviving her Second N52 suit(Yellow Cape not Purple). And just simply remove some complicated lines.

    Dan Mora's rendition of the Burnside suit is easily my favourite Batgirl design for Babs, he drew the Rebirth Batgirl #14 variant, whcih was one of the Nightwing crossover issues for. Was and still is one of my favourite Rebirth covers tbh. I basically love all of Dan Mora's superhero work tho (especially Power Rangers stuff), and his Nightwing is no exception lol.

    About the costume, I think he ended up changing the colours to fit her actual design at the time for the final cover, but I really liked the initial cover.

    Dan Mora is one of my favorite artists currently. I would straight up kill people to get him on Nightwing, Superman, or the League. His work with Morrison on BOOM!'s Klaus is a highlight each winter for me, that book is as good as Invincible was, as good as any Superman or Nightwing comic at their best. And Mora has got to be one of the hidden gems of comic book art right now, it's like he's off everyone else's radar except for the four people who know of him.

    Well that had her body suit with it being all gray. I prefer it to be black/yellow rather than blue/yellow/gray

    Really loved today's YJ episode. It really emphasizes how Dick has been struggling with Wally's death, which seems to be one of his main arcs this season.

    Makes it more sad that despite the state that both of them are in in the comics, neither has acknowledged the other.
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.
