So, I noticed the Respect Thread was gone on here for some reason when I was going to add something to it. So I've decided that I'll revamp it up! This time, being much more specific then before! I hope you enjoy this! If you find me missing something, post the feat and I'll add it. Well...here it is!
This is a new section I thought of making. With the appearance of Dick Grayson in the New 52, some portrayals differ from one another. I will warn that this section is entirely subjective and I urge to make sure you get your own view too If you do not trust what's stated.
(There's no doubt people will not agree with my word on portrayals. Feel free to look through this thread as people will address these portrayals with their opinions. This entire part is unlike any other respect thread...but the purpose is to let others know of some of the background surrounding the writing. Some characters get all kinds of feats and it's not always good writing that makes it legitimate. I love Dick Grayson but he's just as subseptible to exaggeration as he is to being margenalized.)
- The first New 52 Nightiwng solo series is what I would refer to as a "decent" series in terms of feats and even character portrayal. However, don't expect anything to exemplary. Much like any other stories, there's time when Dick acts stupid, is taken down easily, or has trouble with a situation one would think Nightwing would have little to no issue.
- The Grayson series has probably the best set of feats to the character in the New 52 (and probably to date) and is a mostly an upgrade from any previous appearances predating the comic book's introduction in the New 52. However, there are some EXAGGERATED feats typical of any solo series that focuses on the strengths and capability of the character. Your mileage will also vary on his technical prowess and some intelligence, although some of it is done intentionally and there's no internal monologues to let you know how Dick is truly feeling. But overall, a lot of his good feats in the New 52 are from this.
- In Titans Hunt, Dick appears in just about every issue. Feat wise, it's a bit so-so. He really doesn't do much in the series and not much of his tactical prowess is really focused so don't expect anything to daring from any feats displayed here. There's also various characterization issues here and his facial expression betray any kind of tactical ability he has.
The Titans book spins off from Titans Hunt with the same writer but different artists. There's little information from his portrayal as of right now (6/22/16), although from Titans Hunt, you can assume it'll be similar but nothing is definitive. All that's known is Titans Rebirth #1, which does show a in-character Dick Grayson so there's that.
- In Batman & Robin Eternal, I have to say that this is the most wishy-washy set of appearances for the character from characterization to feats. He's not allowed to be as smart or competent since this is a crossover with a more prominent cast with fanbases on their own expecting their character's known skill to carry over fairly. I can safely say everyone who isn't a Harper Row fan gets cheated out of this one way or the other. Despite Dick being a main character, he goes through SOME good periods and the rest is horrid. He has the best out of any batfamily characters NOT named Harper Row but it's really not saying much at all. Whatsoever. Chockful of Batman comparisons and putdowns to elevante new characters, don't expect anything much from this book with feats for Dick...or any character to be frank.
