    I think that flight might be a bit excessive for the type of hero Nightwing is, but I know in some continuities he has Spider-man like gliders under his arms, which I wouldn't mind seeing in the main universe.

    The BTAS version and the first Rebirth suit have an underarm glider. He doesn't even need a grappling hook if he falls down around a construction area, but it's useful to have if he jumps from somewhere high into an open area with no bars to swing around or gargoyles to grapple on the way down.

    True, flight might be much. I guess in the sense if the underarm gliders could be attached to part of his suit. That they can retract. By that, I mean how some of his suit designs have the stripes go all across his arms and part of his back.

    Correct, and here's the proof:

    No, Dick's background as a performer is reflected in the way he moves across the rooftops. He's a showman and it shows in the way artists draw him moving across the city.

    I like him parkouring his way over flying.




    Look at the show off.

    I love Batman's face here. He looks like disapproves but Nightwing gives Zero f**ks lol

    The acrobatics is enough. Don't forget, his family when performing at the circus were known as the FLYING Graysons.

    Dan is indeed awesome.

    This cover is so alive and full of energy especially Nightwing. Dan manged to capture Dick's personality and charm in one shot.
    The readers eyes can't help but be drawn to him.

    He looks so happy and carefree which makes me sad since this was just before he got RICed.
    I'd take Dan on a Nightwing title or Travis Moore.

    Completely agree. Just thought those "arm-gliders" would come in handy as a back-up plan in case of emergencies.

    I feel like a lot of artists go way overboard with the "acrobatic" stuff where it just looks ridiculous. Booth is one that comes to mind. Just odd body positions that don't really make any practical sense. I'd love for Dick to have more useful things like gliders on his suit or anything, but they will never do that because they want Nightwing to continue to be a Daredevil knockoff.

    Pretty sure him being 8 was the first age given to him in the original Golden Age Batman run I think. It is why the Young Justice show had him be 8 to reference that.

    I would like to get the gliders back. As others have said, acrobatics and parkour is where Dick lives; that's how he gets around and that shouldn't change; it's as central to his heroics as Superman's flight poses. But the gliders would be useful in a lot of situations too, and it's something you don't usually see from the other Bats, or any other street level DC vigilante, for that matter.

    But then again, if I got my way, I'd have Dick fighting some more powerful superhumans and wearing a costume akin to the Batman Beyond suit in its abilities. Minor enhancements to strength and agility, lots of utility belt type gadgets, glider wings and small jet boots to provide a boost, stealth options, and additional protection. Something that would compliment and enhance the way Dick moves and fights, not change or replace it. But as I've said, I'd pull Dick out of the street level and get him away from the Bat-lite crap, so anyone who likes Dick just being another Bat sidekick isn't going to agree with me.

    I would kill to get Dan Mora on Nightwing. He's been one of my favorites ever since I discovered his art with Klaus. I mean, if an artist was better suited to Nightwing than Mora, I don't know them!

    I really like this one from ASBAR.



    I usually prefer when they have costumes that don't look like his Robin costume, it makes the people of Gotham even more stupid to not figure out his secret identity.

    Makes me wonder. What would it be a dumb idea to have Dick actually have his parents alive. They survived but Bruce still feels bad

    Nothing cannon. A what if
