    Yep, totally agree.

    As I said in a previous post, it's not Jason that sucks - just the current writing of him.

    I still wonder why DC let Liberman make Prometheus, Hush's little b***h :o

    No, he'll always be as worthless as I think. I still think Bucky is a worthless character over at Marvel, even though Brubaker made his return bearable.

    And as I said - thats your opinion.

    My opinion is that the character has potential.

    I guess we just have different views on the subject.

    Same here. The story involving Bucky was great, but beyond that, meh.

    No, actually its fact. Traithlon probably has loads of potential as well, doesnt change the fact that hes a crappy character.

    Yeah, he was pretty crappy. I kind of liked him when he got more tied into the 3-D Man, though. Kind of like Beast Wars; it was just kind of there until the ties to G1 started coming in. Then it got awesome.

    the bottom line here is that DC is stupid for handing beloved characters off to sucky, unproven writers... let them play with the c listers for a while... see if they can make them interesting... any writer worth their salt can take even the lamest character and find an angle that gets people interested... in my opinion (theres that phrase again! haha) you could have grant morrison write a book about the wondertwins and he would find a way to make it bad ass... just like you can have chuck austen write superman and make it blow...

    just read 120, i liked it better than the others in the arc so far, but it is isn't great. cover art is abit off putting to me. and i know that cheyenne is going to wear a nightwing costume soon, which is going to be horrid, but at,least Jason is going to get the living crap kicked outta him. :)

    I also liked #120 better than the first two issues. It wasn't good, per se, it was just less bad and had a moment or two that didn't completely suck. The male model thing blew it pretty bad, though.

    Maybe Bruce tried to touch him in... that way. Not for any physical attraction--Dick's way too old for him. But, y'know, for old times' sake. :(

    Hah, I was gonna say "Bruce tends to go after little boys" but then I read the rest of your post.

    Darthphere - Who knows. Apparntally his proposal to Babs went to ****, he moved what city he was looking over, and he's a closet alcoholic (though they havn't shown it yet. You can just tell)

    I read the last 3 issues just because you made me curious. Nightwing is indeed... disappointing. Before Infinite Crisis it seemed like he finally got his act together but now he's down in the dumps... again.
    For some reason the only capacity in which I truly like Dick is that of a leader. He seems to be great at motivating other people but not himself.

    First DC title I've ever bought. Not bad. Not great. I bet this will get better. I like Bruce Jones' writing so I will pobably like this if he keeps putting out issues like the last one.

    Good lord, if you think the OYL stuff is good, start reading it from issue 1. You'll be amazed.

    Geoff Johns said in an interview that he would love to take over Nightwing. Team him up with Shane Davis and you've got yourself a top 25 title.

    Actually, they could just take him off Green Lantern and put someone else on it.
