Dick Grayson - the Original Robin.  One of my all time favorite characters, especially when he was leading the Titans in the '80's.

As much as I love him, however, Dan Didio hates him and is always threatening to kill him.  He may have got his wish in March's Forever Evil #6 but we shall see.  I think, like Marvel's Gambit, this is a character that sends people to opposite ends of the love/hate spectrum.  I for one will not be happy if he meets the grim reaper.

I did like his short stint as Batman with Damian as his Robin.  Those were some good stories and good character development for the two.

So what say thee Realmers?  Love Him or hate him?

As Robin, not a big fan. As you guys know, I've never been a fan of teen-sidekicks. I'd much rather read a solo-Batman story.

As Nightwing he's a much cooler character, though.

I love him. Seriously. Unlike Nate, I, for whatever reason, have always loved this sidekick. I don't like to imagine him as a 12 year old, but a 16-18 year old or so, in that bright Robin suit? I think he got the biggest rush outta dressing like that and kicking ass all over.

Dick can always laugh at life. That's what is great about him. That's what he should always be about. As inspiring as any Justice Leaguer, as serious as Batman, as respected and 'good' as Superman, and never believing he deserves it, but working in that role anways.

Dick Grayson is THE MAN.

Loved him as Robin
Loved him as Nightwing

Dude is the shiznit.

Even though I was pretty much out of comics, or away from DC at least, when he had his first series, I was ecstatic about giving his Nu52 title a shot. Sadly, the writer just didn't grab me and I only made it to about issue 6 before dropping it (And I still prefer the blue on his suit over that red). But rest assured, I will be first in line for his new GRAYSON series once it starts.

I thought this would garner a lot of hate. I am pleasantly surprised!  Take this Dan Didio!
