I'll take "Things we don't talk about anymore" for 800, Alex...

And yet this is still better than Countdown.

I disagree.

Both have horrible writing, but at the very least Countdown looked pretty.

There's a female Nightwing now? She's kinda hot. What happened to her?

She was a metahuman fashion designer that Dick had a fling with. She never wanted to be a superhero, but just...had a Nightwing suit around when the Pierce brothers attacked? Unfortunately, it didn't do any good because one of the brothers recognized her boobs (I kid you not!). She left New York at the end of the arc, because she was left bankrupt and she couldn't deal with Dick's hang-up on Barbara. It was made clear throughout the arc that he was using her as a stand-in for Babs just because she had red hair. It was all ickiness and stupidity rising in cresendo until it reached its zenith in the Jason Todd tentacle monster. *shudders*

This wasn't the end. This was the beginning*

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque

* The reboot, at least. 1YL. This and the Piccoult WW garbage were the worst 1YL had to offer. Superman, Batman, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, JSA, Checkmate, and Supergirl and the Legion were the good things to come out of 1YL. A whole lot of the rest was crap crap crappity shit.

Ok, my first instinct is oh god oh no terrible terrible terrible. BUT I think there's a golden lining here. If a future author wanted to use this and HUSH for example to prove that the resurrected Jason Todd was, this whole time, actually a mind-damaged, very-precise Clayface...well, I think it would work.

We can tell that Jason Todd has been dead for a while since he still sends telegrams.

The best analysis of these issues I've read starts with the fact that Dick Grayson was originally slated to die in Infinite Crisis, and Jason Todd was supposed to take over the Nightwing role for a while. But the editorial staff changed Dan DiDio's mind on sending Dick to the dirthouse.

All the actions that make no sense for Dick—waking up in bed with a woman who's name he's forgotten, working as a model because he can't find anything else to do, modeling in a Nightwing costume—make more sense if we decide those actions were planned for Jason.

In this case, the giant, tentacled, man-eating slug would have been someone else, not Jason. But it still makes no sense, no matter which way we look at it.

What's funny is that even though these actions make more sense for Jason, Jason being Nightwing after Dick's death makes no sense whatsoever. It's just...I've never gotten over somebody thinking that Nightwing was that kind of role. Not to mention it's another example of how they don't know who Jason is because you'd think the last thing he'd want to do is inherit another costume from Dick, this one a costume that was defined by being an extension of Dick himself. It's like the only way it makes sense is something Jason is using to get attention, begging somebody to come and say he shouldn't do it.

Also, lets face it, who would want to fill that suit after Dick? It's like putting on Ursula Andress's Dr. No bikini without her body.

It's Earth-86, where telegrams are the primary mode of communication and Jason was raised by crazy Skrulls!!

Dick's arrival in New York also saw them bring Bridget Clancy back briefly before shipping her back into comic book limbo. This included Dick interacting with her a couple of times as Nightwing without Clancy apparently recognising they were the same person, which stretched the ole suspension of disbelief a bit for me.

Which was already stretched quite thin by transferring her from Bludhaven to New York and shifting her from a Medical course to Psychiatric.

aww, you missed the following panel which has Jason talking about Cheyenne and Dick facepalming in embarrassment. *snickers*

But yeah, this whole thing was a very very bad dream. It never happened and I'll stab anyone who uses this for character reference on Jason Todd. Xo

THAT NEVER HAPPENED.

NEVER.

There never were tentacles, never was a Jason who could use the word "gauche", never was Dick modelling Nightwing costumes, never was a fight between the two mentioned above in full view of the cameras, never was Cheyenne Freemont, and most definitely never was a Dick who could think that it was too bad Jason hadn't died in the exploding building before Infinite Crisis.
