I would like to think that Didio wouldn't be this stupid to kill off Dick but there is a chance that I may be wrong.

Then you would be wrong. Didio has made it his personal mission in life to see that Dick Grayson is killed at some point while he has some degree of power at DC.

I actually thought that Didio's mission was to piss off all the fans at DC and prove he's a bigger asshat than Jim Shooter was when he was in charge at Marvel.

It has been public knowledge that Didio intended to kill Nightwing during Infinite Crisis but was eventually talked out of it. Any time there has been an event or crossover since, Nightwing's name is one of the first names to be tossed into the Death Pool. In fact, I can pretty much guarantee that if Morrison didn't have plans for Dick during his Batman run, Didio would have pressed to kill him.

Yeah I was aware of this some time back and it's sad that Didio just doesn't know when to leave well-enough alone. If Didio goes through with this, this won't end well...

You say that but people will buy it and people will read it, while other sites will praise the "bold creative direction" that DC is taking. Unfortunately, I have reach my breaking point. I am adding too many Independent books to continue justifying purchasing books that I am barely enjoying anymore. I want to read stories with more substance to them then simply surviving from one stunt to another. :smt102

Not that that'd stop them.


Heck, I'm not even certain New52 Barbara is that tech-savvy.

They jumped it with the New 52.

- A character IS his continuity.
- Continuity is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer.

You all SHOULD have left when this New 52 atrocity started.

If something happens to Dick, stick to your guns this time!

Yeah, you couldn't miss it. The shark was covered in superfluous lines to make it's skin look like armor, and they hired a buxom woman to do the actual jumping wearing nothing but pastels on her chest while arching her back seductively. The motorcycle she rode was covered in pouches.

I sort of thought that.

"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"

If they wanted a clueless Batgirl for the New52 they would have just brought back Stephanie Brown :P
