    That's exactly what she is. Like I said, there's not much there to work with, she's more of a "idea" than a fully fledged and developed "character." But she's a lot of fun.

    Not a ton on Youtube, but I liked this complication; it gets the point across.

    I dare anyone to watch that and then tell me she wouldn't be utterly PERFECT for Nightwing's rogues gallery.

    Thanks for the youtube link. Roxy would be ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.

    So, Roxy Rocket, Red X, and who else?

    Oh, that's a good one! Especially if you ran with the "Haley's Casino" idea the RFG would be incredible! I always thought they were an awful threat for any League worthy of the name but they'd make a quality foe for Nightwing. And once in a while Zee can show up to lend a hand too.

    I'd like to see more of Tiger King. In fact, I think he should have his own title.

    Ragdoll! Crazy Contortionist fits the theme well!

    How is Nightwing going to poach villains from other books now that he is essentially dead for the future as far as our eyes can see? I don't feel very confident that we'll ever get "our" Dick back; Didio is enjoying this too much.

    Dude, "as far as our eyes can see" is only as far as solicits. Anything else is rumor or theory or wish list, and you can't even trust the solicits to be accurate. But you've been around the block long enough to know it always goes in cycles. This too shall pass, just like every other sh*t show DC's thrown over the years.

    Thanks, Ascended. You are very correct; I just feel sad and in Nightwing Withdrawal tonight. Dick Grayson will still be around when Dan Didio is retired on that fabulous island with all the hula girls. "Think positive thoughts, chum."

    Brother, I feel ya. I think we all worry that these are the final days for Dick, or at the very least that he'll never recover from what's being done to him. I know I get concerned over that sometimes. But I try to keep in mind that the fear is irrational. Everything comes full circle eventually and Dick has out lasted low points before. If he could survive McCarthy, the infamous DC implosion, COIE, the collapse of the NTT, and all the rest of it, he'll survive Didio and walk away without a scar. Or at least....not a very big scar.

    Oh sh*t, I should mention another great option for Dick's rogues gallery. I've mentioned this a few times before but not in this thread.

    The Flamebird and the Nightwing. The actual Kryptonian gods.

    I'd have them drawn to earth because this is where the last bits of Kryptonian culture and science are found. But once they get here they discover two mortals who have usurped the names (Dick and Bette, obvs) and the gods decide that those two would make excellent hosts. And suddenly Dick would find himself stuck in a "X-Men Phoenix" type of situation. The gods want to be worshiped and they're not going to be shy about pushing the earth pantheons out of the way. They're not going to be too damn pleased with Superman or Supergirl either, for failing to keep Krypton's culture alive. Can Dick keep himself and Bette one step ahead of beings who can bend reality and one-shot Superman? And if Dick can't, can he and Bette retain enough of themselves once they're bonded to prevent the gods from burning the whole world to ash?

    Here's one.

    Ric. Dick's true arch-nemesis. His polar opposite that desperately tries to ruin Dick's relationships by being a convincing look-a-like. But due to having a natural afro, he has to either wear a wig or just go around with a shaved head, posing as Dick, and ruining his reputation.

    He could probably snatch up a couple villains from the Arrowverse like Nyssa and Darrk
