    Creatively, Bludhaven isn't dead or bankrupt, it's just been in poor hands (just like Nightwing himself). Ultimately, it's just a setting and a setting can be good bad or indifferent depending on the writer.



    One does wonder if they plan on using these guys. Will they be supporting cast members when Dick returns? If 5G is a thing, will they still be Nightwing, since everyone else is getting replaced?

    I know everyone here just wants to see them gone, but I swear to the gods I could use them and make them actually viable. All you need is the right hook.
    I have no idea. It's very unusual that we haven't heard any 5G plans for Dick or any of the characters from his generation. I'm wondering if most of them are going to be killed off or imprisoned. Solicits mentioned that the Batman Who Laughs is going to take control of 666 heroes and make them go on a rampage. I won't be surprised if some of those 666 are the Titans characters who haven't been derailed.

    Wait if Dick needs a job maybe a stunt man. It’s a little bit of a flexible job. Or maybe a fitness class.

    I mean does that job fit him? I mean if he does need a job it would have to fit with his personality.

    Fits him a lot better than being a taxi driver.

    Honestly, what Young Justice Outsiders did in the beginning of the season fits him much more. Not really a day job, but going all over the place, recruiting friends here and there to help him take out crime hide-outs and catch up.

    Agreed. I like the idea of Dick using Haly's Circus as a cover for freelance superheroing.

    Been using this idea every time we're having Dick's Home Base discourse, especially since Haly's the one thing that uniquely his

    So far it seems even using the circus or fitness trainer. I mean if he did go to the circus again wouldn’t people recognize him? He was adopted by Bruce Wayne and was part of a famous family

    Which would help in promoting the circus.

    No more circus, gymnastics trainer, or fitness instructor jobs. I feel like they've done that way too much. Like because he was in the circus as a kid all they can imagine him doing as a job are those things. I give Seeley credit in his Nightwing run with not going down that road and instead tried to make him a counselor, even if I disagree with the idea of giving him a normal job at all.

    I agree with what Jackalope said about YJ Outsiders. It would be my ideal set up. Let him be a full time hero. He doesn't have a personal life or anyone in his life that isn't also a superhero. So it doesn't really make sense to me to waste time trying to build up this thing that isn't an important part of the character. He doesn't seem to have any interest in having a personal life or being anything other than a hero, so let him just act as a hero as he sees fit. He can go on solo missions he views as important, or act as a liaison and coordinator between other heroes to organize bigger missions like in YJ Outsiders. It feels like there is endless potential there.

    I'm not too concerned where he gets the money to fund his missions. I feel like he has the means to deal with it. The Spyral agent stuff gave him the framework to kind of do what we are talking about with their organization supporting him, but I feel like he can do the same things he did there just as Nightwing setting up his own missions and he would be completely happy. You can have him do normal jobs that are part of his mission, like when he was a dealer in a casino tracking Blockbuster, but all those normal jobs are just in service to whatever mission he is currently on.

    I get what you're saying, but I also worry about making him too removed from normal people. One of my biggest pet peeves with modern comics is the lack of attention given to the civilian cast, it feels like these days superheroes only have significant relationships with other superheroes. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but in Dick's case he's always been much more grounded and connected to the "common" people relative to the other bats, and I don't want to lose that aspect of his character.
