    I wouldn't be surprised that Dick was taller as Batman.

    It is clear DC use the height as a certain symbol of hierarchy in the Bat-Family. Just look New52 Batman #1 when Bruce appear along Dick, Tim and Damian.

    No idea what Dick's official height is, but I'm pretty sure he's just of average height, which makes him look short compared to the towering giants that are most superheroes.

    Personally, I think it's a great detail.

    Dick's 6' Pre Crisis and 5'10" starting later Post Crisis
    Kori's 6'3" Pre Crisis and getting shorter as time passes until she's the same height or shorter than Dick depending on the artist
    Bruce is always 6'2"
    Babs used to be 5'10-11" and changed to 5'8" starting New 52
    Jason's official bio tend to go with 6'-6'2" but the art always makes him shorter than Dick starting New 52 because they like that Batfam stairs

    Yeah, but unfortunately, it's true. Most artists draw them taller or shorter depending on their order of creation, sometimes depending on their hierarchy in the fam too. That's why Jason's and Tim's height are so inconsistent art wise.
    Always changing; ever the same.

    This is my Tumblr. Sometimes I post stuff there.

    It's too inconsistent too mean anything. Like the skin tone, hair cut, eyes' color. Birthday. In the end is a visual medium, they may use characteristics and design to tell a story or just because it looks cool, whatever fits the mood.

    5'10" is what I remember for Dick. Or maybe it was 5'8" or something. I think he was the exact average height for an American male, which is pretty short by superhero standards.

    Not that height means anything in comics or is ever treated with any consistency. But I like it when Nightwing is short compared to his peers.

    So a preview for Batman 99 is up. I'm glad the Ric nightmare is almost over. I still probably won't read the book until Jurgens leaves....but I gotta admit I'm tempted to grab 75; it's been a long time since I got an issue of Nightwing and I'm feeling the itch.

    The benefit of being included in the actual event for once and not the event's sub-event is good art lol.

    Damn, that preview was like a cup of water in a desert. Been too long Nightwing was in something that seemed like it could be even semi competent.

    Hang on I'm counting again
    Rebirth backstory timespan is around 10-15 years
    Dick here is based on New 52 around 16 years old
    He's adopted as a child in King's Batman, unclear age

    Okay yeah I can work with this

    Say as an example Rebirth back story is 15 years
    Current Nightwing - 25 years old
    9 years ago - Justice League first meeting - 16 years old
    4 years further (13 years ago) - Adopted - 12 years old
    That still leaves 2 years - 15 years ago - Batman Year One

    I mean there's no set age for his childhood so it can range between 10 to 12 years old but placing it at 12 conveniently set it in Batman Year Three

    Well it makes sense if it's just Dick but you add Tim and Jon, and you have Dick meeting the League for the first time around the same time Jon was born and Tim already Robin and meeting Kon

    Fine. Put pants and boots on his iconic costume then. It is such a simple fix but they keep reusing the awful New 52 costume. It looks so dull to me. The fucking Teen Titans cartoon of the early 2000s understood this but modern DC Comics can't for some reason.
