It just seems like a silly change, if you're going to give him a different name or an alias just make it completely different.

Yes Richard can be shortened a lot, Rich, Rick, Ric Woooooo!, Dick.

Most people stick with one or two, I'm Dan or Daniel, nobody calls me or knows me as Danny so it would seem silly to start using it or my middle name David going forward

Conversation and debate...on the internet??? I'll try anything once

It is confusing. First there was Dick. Then he became a Rick, sorry Ric and now I hope and pray its the audience who gets amnesia and forgets this story-line ever existed.

To be honest it's really more of a battle cry then anything else


There is a worldwide hunt for the DC counter. If anyone finds it they apparently get a free Ric trading card.

A Dick will fall but a Ric will rise. Two reviews for the issue are now online but spoilers ahead

I don't think this counts as an alias. The name reference is the result of his brain injury. I know a lot of people that use variations of their name as they go through life: Christopher, Chris, Topher, etc.

The only way that I will ever accept "Ric" Grayson is if he goes back to that awful collared costume, dyes his hair platinum blonde, and starts a fighting team of four with Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and Damien Wayne that are all managed by Arn Anderson and J.J. Dillon.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can someone please photoshop a picture of Ric Flair in a Robin costume? This needs to happen.

Honestly. I would love a story of Dick Grayson getting hit in the head and waking up thinking that he's Ric Flair. Get a panel of him chopping Killer Croc on the chest.

That is a great middle name. It's also a great FIRST name!

It really was. The rest of us actually know that because we read those titles unlike Draco who just references random things hoping they fit into his latest "this will be forgotten" comments.


I am sure Johns will give you a bonus over at DC for this remark you just passed. In fact, I will get Johns and co to donate some more money to the Sarcasm School by letting them know what you just said. 8)

It should have been a dick-shaped scar, THEN the name change would be understandable.

If it was a dick shaped scar, I'd just assume he fell asleep at the wrong slumber party. 8)
