Dick is iconic to take him out is one thing but to give everything he worked for to someone who never even earned it is another. Do you even know the history of Nightwing and how he got his name and who he even came to before taking that name? This is why Steph should not be called Nightwing. It was like a right of passage between him and two people he saw as father figures (Batman and Superman). All Steph is really remembered for is stealing the Robin suit and Batman taking it away from her. Then almost getting herself killed and then becoming Batgirl where if you blinked you would have missed it. This is why it is a wrong move I get BQM has a special place in his heart for her but that shouldn't cloud your judgement.
Oh for god's sake get over yourself. You guys take this stuff way too seriously. This isn't a sign of disrespect to Dick in any way. Again - let's see WHY she is Nightwing and then debate over how bad it is. Million things could've happened, we don't know any of the facts behind it. Any. Ooh, they chose Stephanie over Dick. Blasphemy! Go burn poor Miller on the stake for it. Let's learn some actual info about and decide if we'll condemn it after. Jeez.
