I think it's a marketing stunt and was always in the cards before the issue was ever published.

After the relative tranquility of Rebirth for a couple of years, DiDio is aggressively pushing DC back into the news with a lot of questionable stunts of late.

Lots of fans are up in arms with the rumored death of

The original Wally West. They brought him back only to get rid of him again.

Re: Biggest Batman News in Decades

So it's a "mature readers" Batman series where Batman's dick is shown, not the regular comics?

Okay, I just googled it, and it's Azzarello and Bermejo. Just the cover and title it looks like it'd be R-rated.
I'm not a fan of Azzarello. From what little I've read from him, too many characters use puns. I tried his Vertigo Wonder Woman series and everyone seemed to talk the same. Joker had a bunch of puns in it too. Who in real life uses puns?

But yeah, I agree it's stupid to censor it, if the editor okayed it and it's supposed to be a part of the "black label" series.

Funny this being mentioned in this thread.

Kevin Smith did a scene where the Joker offered himself up to be sodomizd...

Is this the same comic where he retconned Batman peeing his pants in Year One?

Kevin Smith, ahead of the times.

Sorry, I didn't where else to put this, but it is a Batman related question. I'm not sure if this is so, but I heard that
Spoiler:
Terry McGinnis' little brother is now Robin. Is this true?

Re: Biggest Batman News in Decades

Wait, this is what they focus on?

https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/10...-nightwing-51/

Bleeding Cool told you back in September that Dick Grayson was to no longer be known as Dick. A change that the DC executives have been wanting to make for several years, due to unfortunate connotations with that name in recent decades. And they have taken this moment of amnesia/shock/bullet-through-the-head and taken full advantage of the opportunity granted them. Because this Nightwing? You don’t know Dick. No one does…

They ran through some options in Nightwing #50 but have now seemed to settle on one. Ric Grayson. Not Rick Grayson, too close apparentl.y… though they would probably sound the same…
I guess that's one way to reboot a character. I guess. I know fans of Nightwing have for decades been begging for a name change and total amnesia, separating him from all of his legacy connections, because hey, that's what makes the character great.

It is true on the Batman Beyond book. That book treats Terry McGinnis as a possible future for the DC universe

That is completely bullshit reporting from Bleeding Cool. Yeah, he's call Ric, but not because of the Dick connotation. Is another fresh start for the character that Didio despises.

Either way, "Ric" is a weird way for the character to spell it.

What's the reasoning, then, behind the nickname change?

Bullshit and Bleeding cool definitely go together.

Ive read both issues so far. Ric is the name he is using for his fresh start. He knows his name is Dick but he doesn't feel comfortable using it since he doesn't know who Dick is. Alfred and Barbara keeping tabs on him isnt helping either.

I still don't understand the need for such an arbitrary change unless they indeed (stupidly) wanted to get away from his current nickname. Unless he starts "Wooo!"ing all the time, and slapping people in the chest, that would be acceptable.

If it's just temporary for this story, then fine, though I'm sure they're loving the publicity. Looks like they got all the 90's X-men writers out for this too.

Re: Biggest Batman News in Decades

Yeah it's stupid, but like all things comics, it will change on the next creative team, so whatever. It's a good story so far, so I'm on board.

Re: Biggest Batman News in Decades

I'm thinking Nightwing's name change is about creating controversy and will quietly go away down the line.

By this point, many "creative" changes are seemingly done with the intent of generating controversy with fans and creating more publicity.
