And in the comics when he inevitably reverts back to the status quo.
Today, Nightwing Begins to Lose His Dick... - Bleeding Cool News And Rumors
The article shows the newest Titans issue showing Dick being referred to as ‘Rich’ or ‘Richard.’
DC should start calling him "David."
I read on the back of a Marvel trading card that the writers of the 1978 "The Incredible Hulk" TV show changed Bruce Banner to David Banner because CBS thought "Bruce" sounded like an effeminate name.
Ironically, while being Rich doesn't suit Dick at all, Bruce seems to do alright being rich.
Weird reason. On the plus side, I now know what effeminate means
It doesn't mean "turn green and gets really strong when you're cross," that's for sure.
HENRY CAVILL Out as SUPERMAN - Report
MICHAEL B. JORDAN Considered as Next SUPERMAN - Report
I know it’s not comic book news, but rather comic movies news; though it was interesting though.
Yeah, this is getting a lengthy discussion already over in the Extended DC Universe thread in Movies and TV.

Detective Comics Brings a Gotham Villain Into DC Continuity
Scott Lobdell Replaces Benjamin Percy on Nightwing From #51, Confirms Shot In the Head - Bleeding Cool News And Rumors
I have faith in Lobdell, especially since his current run on Red Hood has been great (based on what I’ve read so far).
EXCLUSIVE: DC's Freedom Fighters Are Making a Triumphant, Nazi-Punching Return
DC Announces Martian Manhunter Series From Orlando & Rossmo
The Hawkman series is very interesting at the moment. Hawkman is Quantum-leaping through his legion of incarnations across different eras and worlds, on a mystery. (I wonder if it will mention his Violet Lantern history.)
It's nice that he's made many friends and allies across the ages. When written well and with care, Hawkman can be quite a badass hero.
Zack Snyder's Batmobile Has Officially Become DC Comics Canon
I'm glad you think so. It's boring me to tears. I'm having a hard time not skimming the issues just to be done with them faster so I can move on to a better comic. Which sucks, because I am a longtime hardcore Hawkman and Hawkwoman fan. The book has a not horrible writer and a fantastic artist, but it just does nothing for me.
I had high hopes for this week's issue, because I love the Truman Hawkworld mini and the Ostrander ongoing that followed it (until it self-destructed during fucking Zero Hour). So I was excited to see that version of the characters again and that world. Except it wasn't that version of the characters and world. It was antiseptic and shallow and BORING.
What really sucks is that I know I'm going to keep buying this book no matter what, because I want so badly for it to become good. It is easily my least favorite comic of what I buy. There are books better than this that I drop.
At some point they kinda all do. There's always a shot in his garage with a movie version or two.
The last few issues of white knight had like all the tv and movie batmobiles in it. At the same time. It was awesome
I love the idea of Batman having to decide which ride to take out on patrol that night.
I met Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion at a Conference and had them sign one of the first comics I ever read. I also met Kevin Conroy, but his autograph was considerably more expensive...
Where good sir?
That's cool, but I've seen Golden Age comics less beat up than that one
At Keystone ComiCon in Philadelphia. Not sure how I missed it autocorrect con to conference.
The spine is a bit nicked up (the downside of mostly-black covers) but most of the wear is from the bag, which I've used in the past as a makeshift poster frame.
Another Heroes In Crisis #1 Death Confirmation (MAJOR SPOILERS) - Bleeding Cool News And Rumors
So yeah it goes the way pretty much everyone figured it would.
This is why people are losing interest, it's so by the numbers you can see the plot before even reading the issue. Go back a few pages and see comments of people predicting this.
