It’s a complicated first goal, to be sure, and one made all the more tricky by the fact that it’s way more than just a mission for the greater good for our favorite former Boy Wonder—it’s personal.

A Return to Blüdhaven...

If you’re a fan of Dick Grayson, chances are you’ve heard the name “Blüdhaven” every now and again. It’s a city, sure, one that’s only a short drive down the coast from Gotham, and it’s got a pretty nasty reputation care of its crime rate and corruption—but it also represents a massive part of Nightwing’s history.

A Brief History of Robin

As bleak as Gotham City can seem, it’s always had at least one ray of light—Robin. The Boy Wonder has long kept Batman from becoming TOO dark of a Dark Knight with his optimism, energy and youthful exuberance.
