Because this week features two ex-robin books I will spotlight the origins of Jason Todd and Dick Grayson. Anyone even loosely familiar with the character knows that this means a very memorable appearance by a certain Bat-Villain…. Nightwing 0 gives us the New52 origin of the first Robin, Dick Grayson, the man who would become known as Nightwing.
