Tell me if I’m wrong, but I believe that just by being a fan of Dick Grayson, you’ll soon end up knowing the rest of the characters in DC.
Sure would like some new wallpapers on my laptop featuring Nightwing in the Arkham City game hehehe. Anyone?
So apparently, La Union post office finally managed to trace my missing packages and got word back to me. Where are my stuff? Already marked as ‘Return to Sender’ because apparently, they couldn’t find the address. Why? Because their previous postman is no longer employed there, so I guess the new one can’t find his way around the province (what, he’s not from around there?). What. A load. Of bull. I had 4 packages to be shipped to me. 4. Two of them (a bookmark and a bracelet) arrived. The other two (a chess piece and a set of 4 shot glasses) never did. Gee, does it sound like they’re only accepting small packages the size of a letter and not anything bigger? Not to mention, I had the shot glasses AND the bracelet sent within the same week. Why did the bracelet arrive and not the shot glasses too?
Lazy idiots, the bunch of them.
Someone asked for the source when I mentioned that DC didn’t want NW to show up in non-bat titles, and well, I have to admit that I don’t have a source other than a post in a message forum - meaning that it could have just been speculation. Still, I think that it brings to mind how much neglected NW fans feel for Dick Grayson.
Quoted from a NW fanfic author: “But then, since Dick isn’t the most liked, respected leader among the superhero community anymore, I guess there wouldn’t be any reason to use him in other titles.”
I loved NW when he led the Titans, the Outsiders, even the JLA. I loved his relationships with the other heroes. I loved how he could take several individuals who have never worked together before and turn them into a kick ass team. And I especially loved how NW is supposed to be center of the DC Universe.
But the new 52 seems to have decided that this part of history is no longer valid. Is this how much you hate Dick Grayson, DC?
Sometimes, I think DC would like to forget Dick Grayson ever existed. What with the way they’ve isolated him by removing his best friends, told others not to use him outside of Bat books, removed his stint as Titans leader and founder, reduced his stint as Batman into an afterthought, and merchandise? What merchandise? It’s like all his greatest achievements and storylines where he shone the brightest and they just…tossed those out.
