If itâ€™s hard being a super hero, what is it like as a sidekick? The heroes get the glory, while you clean up the mess. You donâ€™t make the decisions and you donâ€™t give orders. So, what do you do if youâ€™re the Boy Wonder to one of the most recognizable super heroes in the universe and youâ€™re looking to break out on your own?
Simple. You become Nightwing.
When his circus acrobat family was brutally murdered, Dick Grayson was taken in by billionaire and bat-friendly super hero Bruce Wayne. Bruce shared his secret life as Batman with the young boy and eventually molded him into Robinâ€”the Dark Knightâ€™s partner in Gotham. But as Dick grew older, playing second fiddle to the sternest hero in the Justice League began to wear on him, and eventually he struck out on his own, staying true to what he learned as Robin while coming into his own as a respected member of the super hero pantheon. His code, like his mentorâ€™s, is simpleâ€”if youâ€™re breaking the law on his turf, watch out. Anyone who doesnâ€™t can expect a short and most assuredly painful trip to Arkham.
Yet, while he may share methods and motivation with Batman, Dick knows what being Batman can do. He doesnâ€™t want to become as dark, controlling and lonely as Bruce. But for all the good heâ€™s accomplished while avoiding it, one question is unavoidableâ€”without going as far as Batman, can Nightwing be as effective as he ultimately wants to be?
