He passed over several better characters for a character he is already familiar with and I bet will turn into a Mary Sue.

I don't don't like that, I don't like Batman's look and I'm not going to pick this up.
Agreed on Steph's role and place in the Bat family. Even in Batgirl she really didn't get a chance to shine because the book was cancelled before she could. Also as you said I will always she her as Tim's girlfriend. She is a supporting cast member of Tim Drake more than she was Batman. But I will still give it a shot since I am a SV fan and a Superman fan but I disagree with using her. I would have been ok with any of the four Robins but her. I get the reason for why the JL turned out the way it did on the show and that was because over 95% of the league was tied up in movie rights so I get Flash, Cyborg and AC. But when you're off the air and have the DCU at your feet I don't get why you would use Steph when Dick could serve in that role unless they make Steph his lover or something like that as well.

I've always wondered what Steph would be like as Nightwing. Besides, this Steph could be portrayed much stronger.
I hope you're right.
