"Undercover villain" may factor in, just in a different way.
On other sites folks are the saying/theorizing that Earth 3 may be involved with "Forever Evil".
Also consider Volthoom in the last GL cross-over. They said he was from another universe.
At BleedingCool, Rich states that the Crime Syndicate of America is who captures Nightwing.
So what if the evil Nightwing from Earth-3 is swapped with New52 Dick and takes over his life here ?
