We’ve already written that Nightwing will be a focus for the upcoming Forever Evil event. And we’ve also stated that we don’t believe he’s going to die. But that something else of a media-frenzy nature may occur.
Now we think we may know what it is. So, you know, MAJOR SPOILERS going on. You have be warned.
During the big Marvel crossover Civil War, in which villain met villain, Spider-Man revealed his identity to the world as Peter Parker.
After a variety of stories, such as Aunt May and Mary Jane being put in safe houses, the whole thing was kind of reversed in Brand New Day by the devilish Mephisto. And somehow everyone kinda forgot.
I understand that something similar will be happening in the big DC crossover Forever Evil, in which villain fights villain, and Nightwing gets a thorough going over by the Crime Syndicate Of America. Some people thought he was getting killed, but we never did.
Instead we may be getting another big media event and, after getting a thorough drubbing, will be captured by Superwoman’s lasso and forced to reveal his identity to the world, as Dick Grayson. I think you can forgive the media when they report it as “Robin’s Secret Identity Revealed To The World.”
But that this change in Nightwing’s nature is going to stick. No Mephisto here…
