    I have a love for DC COMICS and BATMAN is my hero of choice! It's what started me collecting comics/toys seriously in the 80's and much of my childhood in the 70's was molded by my affection for the character (toys, '66 show, cartoons, underoos, you name it...I had it). With that said, Dick is my second favorite character (be it in Robin form or as Nightwing). I would have no problems at all with DC retiring Bruce at some point (be it a death, crippling, retirement, etc) and Dick is THE choice to become Batman in my universe. Having him as Batman and Damien as Robin would be a perfect match in my mind and would be a suitable PERMANENT solution if DC ever decided to sideline Bruce.

    A little bit. There's a certain pride of being the go-to guy to be Batman, but it's also not what the character wants if he can help it.

    I personally like it for the closed circle of storytelling. The guy Batman trained became Batman while he trained Batman's son, but I'm also okay with the other kids becoming Batman. Tim, for example, who is often touted as the best detective.

    All in all, I'm okay with him being the second, immediate Batman, but not permanently. Only until Tim's body fit the costume for example, and by the time Damian grew up, he should be wise enough to take over.

    This is the bigger problem because this affects him even when he's not Batman.

    And this is basically wrong.

    I love both Terry and JPV, and I don't see the similarities.
