    Nightwing in itself was him doing something new.

    Doesnt change that Nightwing was just a name for DC to shit on now. I liked the concept, but that's all it is. A concept. Nightwing has nothing new to call his own. Even when you count bludhaven it was him trying to do the same thing Batman did when Batman was street level, and both Golden Age and 70s Dick has done before. And in-universe, Dick himself stated everything he had is because Robin and Bruce. Out of all Robins, he was the only one who would be more miserable if hadnt met Bruce. Why do you think Tim was so favored over Dick? Robin and Batman.

    I agree. I picked up two Nightwing series but turned out not really that interested aside from certain story arcs, and I'm not even that interested in picking up the original, mainly because of the art style, but also because of the setup.

    So far the Nightwing I enjoy most is when he interacts with Batman or Damian. So if they're making a Batman/Nightwing series or Nightwing/Robin series, I would instantly be interested.

    Plot-wise I like the globetrotting Nightwing or Grayson more than Bludhaven Nightwing because the setup means he's just doing the same thing as Batman. I don't even pick Green Arrow because my impression was it's not that different than Batman.

    At the very least I want Haly's Circus back as a setting. I'm interested in that too.

    And what is Robin currently doing exactly?

    Irrelevant. The point is Dicks tenure as Robin is the most important and holds the most impact on him and fans.

    Yes, build the name up. Obviously, Dick and Tim did not do an adequate enough job then. Damian has the chance to cement it as his codename and not just something to be passed around for people to look down on as a "sidekick". I think he's doing that right now he just has to keep it up.

    Dick became Robin 13 years ago, at age 13 (he's been doing the "super-hero thing" for half of his life now)

    He was Robin for 6 years, became Nightwing at age 19, 7 years ago

    Filled in for Bruce in the Prodigal storyline at around 21/22 years old

    Moved to Bludhaven around 22/23 years old

    At age 25, became Batman after Bruce "died" in Final Crisis.

    Current age 26
    I still agree with the above quote that I myself posted on 05-31-2016, but I feel like another year of continuity has taken place since then. So for my personal head canon, add one year to above timeline. Dick still spent 6 years as Robin. But his current age in my mind is now up to 27. As far as him being "Ric" now, I've been a comics reader long enough to know nothing is permanent. I don't expect that status quo to last much longer in the grand scheme.
