The good ol days
OMFG LOLing at Dick messing around with the Riddle’s hat and cane thing… he would, he really would.
Also, Black Widow accomplished all of it without being a billionaire.
This is sincerely puzzling to me, and I’m grateful for the reblog that allowed it to cross my dash so I could contemplate it. Who on earth hates Black Widow, a fascinating and uniquely wonderful superhero? Who on earth would set up a false opposition between two completely different characters, from startlingly different worlds? That makes about as much sense as deciding to trash Elizabeth Bennet because Jane Eyre is awesome. I think it’s perfectly cool to say, hey, one of these characters is interesting to me in ways the other is not. But to therefore declare the one who doesn’t hold your interest (in this case, Batman) to be unintelligent, amoral, and (most astonishing of all) not complex reveals a profound ignorance of the text. I think one can level plenty of charges at Batman, but “not complex enough” is a new one for me. Because really? Not very complex, that’s honestly where you’re putting your money? First off, I would think that some sixty years of text is bound to create some pretty dense complexity, even if you were starting with a land snail. But in fact we are talking about a character with possibly the greatest degree of personality tension in any superhero universe: the introverted, moody, socially averse Lone Wolf who just wants to bury himself in his cave and lead some lone crusade against injustice versus the deeply contextualized, highly socialized center of a complicated group of Waynes who has somehow and in ways perhaps unknown to him built the single largest family in comics. It’s his relationships with those people — with Dick (who as Bruce himself points out, saved him), with Jason (dear God that’s a whole universe in itself, the levels of complexity in their relationship and in Jason’s past and present life), with Tim (who looked at him and saw right through him), with Damian (still an open wound — don’t even tell me someone who has held two dead sons in his arms isn’t a complex enough character), and that’s leaving aside the girls that DC has swept under the narrative carpet but which survive as layers of depth in the storyline, with Stephanie and Cass, with allies like Barbara and Kate and Helena. And of course, chiefly and forever, Alfred. For a Lone Wolf that’s quite a pack. Dislike the character if you will (and in sixty years of text there are plenty of reasons in there to dislike him) but don’t dismiss him because you happen to like this other character better. I happen to like Batman a lot. It’s true Natasha Romanoff doesn’t hold my interest in the same way, but I still find her a finely drawn, frequently compelling, kick-ass character, and it would make no sense to me to dislike Black Widow because she doesn’t have a Batmobile. See how that works?
However, I suspect the original tweeter’s point had to do with sexists. Guess what, I’m not one of those, either. But I am going to be more interested in a character who lives a deeply contextualized life with profound attachments to children and family that constantly strengthen/hinder/color/alter everything he does, than I am in a character without that particular layer. That’s just who I am, and I don’t pretend that my readings of a character are anything but projections of the things I care about, since all of us bring our full selves to the table when we read. So let’s also try to bring the fullness of our courtesy and respect to that table, both for fictional characters and fellow fans, because in the end we’re all just people who love stuff really a lot more than normal people should, and the things that unite us are greater than the things that divide us. Reaching a hand of love across the aisle to you, Marvel fans.
One of my favorite relationships in comics is between Bruce and Dick. I think a lot of the time, we all forget that Bruce is really Dick’s adoptive father. So I always wonder what they’re like when Batman tones it down a notch. Maybe they just kick it on rooftops between stakeouts.
⚡ The first time Bruce pushed Dick on a swing, he did a double-somersault as soon as he was high enough.
Bruce (though he won’t admit it, regardless of how Alfred and Dick tell the story), freaked out. A lot.
oh that’s embarrassing i’m having second hand embarrassment
OMG, Narf, it was on the first page and the first two bits of wordage and I just
Like, come on, at least TRY to write some plausible mumbo jumbo science into your comic Kyle Higgins, lol.
*opens Nightwing #26*
*closes Nightwing #26*
I saw the headline “Princess Diana shops at Harrods” on BleedingCool and got mega-confused until I saw that they meant that Wonder Woman, who lives in London in the New 52.
Anyway, London is my favourite place and WW is one of my favourite ladies and Harrods during Christmas is GREAT, so I really just adored this moment in Superman/Wonder Woman #3.
Can’t help but wonder if they’re going to make Grayson the New 52’s Talon in lieu of Calvin Rose and have him fight under that new name as an ‘unknown/kinda’ new hero.’ If that’s the case I wonder what would happen to Rose?
I was just thinking this. I heard that Calvin Rose’s story is wrapping up soon, so they could either be re-launching the title or continuing it with Dick in the role.
Which would be interesting, but if Dick Grayson’s solo comic (if he even gets one, and if all the speculation is true) ends up as “Talon”, I… am skeptical of how well it could do? It doesn’t have the Nightwing name recognition. Not everyone is keeping up with F.E. and I imagine people will just be confused.
Similarly, the new lady Nightwing (?) would have the advantage of an extremely established character’s identity to work off of, but I imagine that once people catch on, the readership is likely to slip. Right now, Nightwing is one of the top selling titles that doesn’t contain the words “Batman”, “Superman” or “Justice League”, and I can’t imagine it will maintain this position if it’s not being led by Dick Grayson.
Either way, I don’t see how things look good for Dick. So close to his 75th anniversary too. uuuuuuugh
