One for Nightwing, or rather some vague misfortune that they apparently have something unpleasant planned for Dick Grayson. I say that it's the crispy remains of Tarantula coming back for revenge or something.

And the Green Lantern one, which is apparently meant to possibly be Jessica Cruz, a Green Lantern who gets her ring in a contraversial way.

On the plus side (from my subjective POV at least) it's most likely Tarantula has been removed from the board with the new 52 and the events she was involved in now never happened either.

Kyle Higgins has mentioned he's still writing Nightwing after the "Forever Evil" thing so Dick should be safe (and given how good his title has been lately, it would be a complete and total pain in the ass if they killed him off for the sake of an event) though he might A) be lying or B) have someone else in the Nightwing suit... Hmm... Babs isn't Batgirl at the moment, is she?

If Dick dies, Bruce should just quit being Batman & Tim should start living in a cave.

Because two dead Robins out of four is bad enough, but three of them dying? That's just incompetence.

That's the OLD Dick, the new Dick is 21 (since he was 16 when he first became Robin 5 years ago)

And Bruce would absolutely blame himself for anything happening to Dick EVER, regardless of his age, since Dick is his son in all but biology, and since he would be the one who had started him on his life of heroing.

Finds it in a box of crackerjacks?

Discovers she's Sinestro's chosen successor?

Letter of recommendation for the Guardians when they were in full-on "Biggest bag of dicks in the Universe" phase?

She was hinted to appear during Geoff Johns' last Green Lantern issue, and she's pretty closely linked to Simon Baz.

EDIT: Wait a tic, I think I just came up with a theory.

Since his introduction, Baz has been characterized as the Lantern who could do things with the ring and the power of will that people previously thought impossible--and this was a little after we found out that Sinestro was able to create a copy of his ring that he gave to Hal.

What if at some point, Simon does something similar...but instead of giving her a ring, he bathes her in green energy to the point where she can create constructs and pilot will without a ring? Notice that on the teaser for her, we don't see a ring at all.

The more I think about it, I think this girl is going to be a drastic reworking of Jade.

Obtains it through the sheer force of will that it takes to hold the "boobs 'n' butt" pose without several vertebrae popping out and hitting someone in the eye?

With the Nightwing teaser, the graphic is interesting. We have the Nightwing symbol that he's been wearing since the start of the New 52, but it's bleeding down, but behind it we have a symbol that has been used for Nightwing in the past, namely the animated series.

Whatever happens to Dick in Forever Evil, I think this is telling us that Nightwing will still be around, but (s)he will have a new costume.

So just another Wednesday in the New 52, then.

It is sort-of in continuity. We see him in a variant of it in a flashback early on in Red Hood & The Outlaws.

I can't see them killing off Dick so I wonder if the unthinkable is Nightwing crossing DC's moral line and killing someone.

Then we can find out if Nu52 Batman is as forgiving for Dick killing as he seems to be for Jason killing.

I can see it now.

Bruce: "Dick, how -dare- you kill someone. You were the chosen one. The only one who hadn't killed anyone....(Sorta). How could you kill ."

Dick: "It was an accident! We were fighting, and I punched him, and he fell and hit his head on a giant rock. Then he fell forward and my escrima stick went right through his eye." (It is nu52. We must be competing with Ultimates for Gore you know.)

Bruce: "I see. Well. Don't do it again."

Jason: "What the f----"

Bruce: *Slams Jason's head into a window* "SHUT UP WILL! ... I mean Jason. YOU'LL GET NOTHING AND LIKE IT!"

Maybe Dick will angst about it mightily and seclude himself off. It will be brilliant storytelling of the likes we've never seen before

Bleeding Cool have weighed in on the topic

Nightwing will live.

Although, given what I’m told does happen, at the hands of the Crime Syndicate of America, death may be a small mercy…

I think Gotham Spoilers said it best: NIGHTWING GONNA GET IT.

Still, given that it looks like the Justice Leagues are gonna get killed during this arc, maybe Nightwing'll die, but gets resurrected and be up and smack-talking after all this. I hope.

Ooh, unless they're tapping Harper Row to wear the blue bird-head version Nightwing outfit?

Harper Row becoming Nightwing would feel weird to me, I mean she hasn't really appeared much (I dropped Batman after Death of the Family, but prior to that she was in what, two issues where she actually spoke? And maybe one after that?)

It'd feel unearned and annoying to me if this character who I barely know and don't really care about suddenly became the new Nightwing. Especially because the Nightwing identity was originally the result of a lot of character growth and development.

This looks anything but promising. Perhaps more Back to the 90's and a great storyline ala the Team Titans's eeevvillll Deathwing.
