    Younger,better athlete,same training,very smart.I find it hard to believe that Bruce left out certain parts of Dick's training so he wouldnt one day surpass him.

    I think it's safe to say Nightwing will never be able to beat Batman. Bruce is older, but he has more experience. I'd say he's also had much more and better training and he's a LOT smarter than Dick.

    Didn't Batman state in a recent comic-book that Tim was getting better than Dick ever was? I could be mixing things up, though. Anyways, I doubt Dick could take Bruce, he may one day be better physically, but Bruce would outsmart him any day, there's a reason this guy can wipe the floor with Superman, and it's not physical.

    Yeah Bruce recently said Tim was on his way to being the greatest Robin ever. Which says a lot.

    Batman could beat Nightwing easily, it's not even a contest.

    but it is his "son". What would happend if he had to die because Batman wouldn't have told him everything?

    I think a titan team led by nightwing could take batman.

    heck, I reckon tim and dick could probably do it together.

    if push came to shove, I reckon bruce would overall underestimate dick and that may be his downside.

    I think bruce has never really seen dick as a threat to him and is probably the only person who batman wouldn't prep up in a fight.

    Essentially he is batman's achilles heel.

    No way. Bats will always have the experience in hand-to-hand to best Nightwing.
    He's also about the ultimate in (normal) human development in the DC universe. He's about as strong, quick, agile, and fit as a normal human can be in the DC universe.

    He's got plans for Dick, blatantly. Batman's not that stupid, he realizes that living in the DCU means he has to have plans to one day take down everyone, and I mean *everyone*

    Batman's beaten Nightwing many times. Dick has a soft spot for his mentor and lacks a killer instict in fighting him, and that's part of the reason he always loses.

    I'd say they're about even, but its tough to say who would win. They know each other and each other's moves too well. Nightwing has come a long way since he was Robin. And about the quote which says Tim is the best Robin, I never interpreted that as saying he was better than Dick, because Dick is no longer Robin.

    Bruce is smarter and rougher. If it came down to the nitty gritty he would kill Dick in seconds.

    Bats and Nightwing got into it right in the middle of the Batcave during the Bruce Wayne: Murderer storyline, and Bruce decked him. In fact, while Nightwing was extremely furious, Bruce seemed to hardly even be putting any effort into the fight...

    you see that's the sort of reasoning which makes me believe that dick would ultimately be the only person batman underrates

    he's seen as an inferior human in intelligence and also in fighting capability. Why would he require prep for someone like that.

    It's the ultimate double sided scenario


    ps

    anyone got scans of any bruce and dick fights

    I dont think it was a question of Bruce underestimating Dick as much as it was Bruce not wanting to hurt him. I mean, who knows Nightwing's abilities better than the man who trained him?

    Batman doesn't underestimate Dick at all. He's just a better fighter than he is.

    Yes. In this issue, Bane rolled all over Nightwing with relative ease, however, Batman defeated Bane quite soundly.
