The final fate of Nightwing! The most unlikely of allies have set the Crime Syndicate in their sights — and they’re playing for keeps while the life of a hero hangs in the balance! Plus, the identity of the mysterious man in the hood is finally revealed!

So… what do we reckon? Despite the teasing, Bleeding Cool isn’t expecting a proper death of Nightwing, even if his identity has been revealed to the world. Though I do like the idea that Nightwing might die and be resurrected as a Talon. From a nightwing to an owl… Might also make sense of James Tynion jumping from Talon to Nightwing wouldn’t it?

And look who’s back…
