Dan Didio: They might make it through September, but I can’t guarantee they’ll make it through the entire series. That includes what might be one of the most talked about events for DC Comics this year. One of our major recognizable characters will be affected in a very dramatic way.
Jim Lee: If you’re going to do an event that impacts the entire universe, there have to be consequences or repercussions, and this one is going to be meaningful. It all comes out of the great story starting in September.
Bleeding Cool is reporting that Aaron Haaland, after attending the DC Retailer Roadshow, confirmed that Nightwing will be the "major recognizable character affected in a very dramatic way." Then reminding us that Didio had wanted to kill off Nightwing in Infinite Crisis.
So what do you think? Will they kill Nightwing off or have him suffer some horrific injury forcing him to the sidelines (creating a new Oracle)? If removed, will another Robin rise to take his place? Will Nightwing himself become a Villain? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Bleeding Cool returned today to speak about the rumor, saying: No, Nightwing will not die, but given what's to happen to him, death may be preferable. I guess we'll have to wait and see for the official "affect" Nightwing is to experience, but at least this let's us narrow down the speculation.

Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
