    I'm curious due to his long history. What are the best and worst things Dick has done?

    I dunno if this is the worst thing Dick's done, but in the pulp noir annual he seduces a woman and marries her as part of an investigation. I forget the details, I think she had been married to a mob guy who got killed.....I can't recall, but she had gone through a rough patch and Dick used that to work his way into her life. Stone cold.

    He never sleeps with her, and I can't decide if that makes it worse or better. I mean, sleeping with her under false pretenses is pretty damn awful but think how wrecked that poor girl is; she went through the original trauma that put her in Dick's crosshairs, has legit feelings for him, and then endures the stress of wondering why her boyfriend/new husband isn't even interested enough in her to share a bed. She's just a ball of anxiety and depression by the end, and a lot of it was caused by Dick.

    Well, he thought she was a serial killer (both her husbands died soon after the wedding in accidents), so decided to marry her and found out the truth. There are plenty of stories with the same plot, plus it was written by Devine Grayson, so he wasn't exactly on character.
    A lot of people hate what he did in the Annual #2, when he slept with Barbara just before telling her that he was going to marry Kory... that was awful, seriously, but OOC again.
    Probably the wrost thing, imo, was killing the Joker.
    The best? He helped a lot of people, giving them a new path and purpouse: I'm thinking about Damian, Rose and even Bruce.

    I used to be very over-serious about it, but these days I sort of think that a Dick Grayson outfit that doesn't look a little flamboyant and showy is missing a key part of Dick Grayson.

    I agree, his current blue stripe look is simple and iconic and I love it, but I always felt like it was a little too "gotham" if that makes any sense. I feel like modern nightwing doesn't gel as well visually with the rest of the Titans compared to the classic look. Imo the perfect Nightwing outfit would essentially be a modernized discowing.

    I still think the "black suit with blue bird emblem" costumes are the best. You have the now classic blue-black color scheme, you have a logo you can slap on merchandise, you can include a lot of detail (like Young Justice, Arkham games) or slim it down completely (Timmverse) without losing the overall design, and it's easy to draw while also standing out from the rest of the cape-n-cowls crowd.

    The original Dixon era chevron is my absolute favorite Nightwing costume, and it's just as flexible as the one with the logo (Titans live action, direct-to-DvD cartoons), but Dick needs an emblem for marketing.

    Yea. I don't like that they took away the bird. Didn't he have gliders in one era?

    He did, I think it was the yellow and blue early 90's costume?

    I'd very much like to get the glider back, I don't know why it was taken away in the first place.

    Today's Batman: Gotham Nights had a short story about Dick and Jason teaming up to solve a murder. Pretty good.

    Jason, Dick, Chemo, and Bludhaven. Deliberate call back?

    Eeh, i didn't love it. The first story wasn't bad, but the team up. Ya, i don't know. Im pretty over the serious Batman Jr. plus insert character to tell him how serious he is and/or how he's not Batman. It is one of the most base and boring default takes on the character, and just sucks all the charm out of the character.

    Dick's the serious one and Jason is his same old self. It has some good back and forth between the two. Not what you would want, but respectful of both characters, i think.

    It's nothing great, but at least nothing offensive either. For a random comic book like this, i kinda liked. At this point i just take what i can get.
