2015 Top 50 DC Characters 3-1

After over 1,200 ballots were cast, YOU the reader ranked your favorite comic book characters from 1-10. I assigned point totals to each ranking and then my friend Chris tabulated it all into a Top 50 list. We’re now revealing that list throughout the next few weeks. The countdown concludes…

3. Dick Grayson – 3337 points (84 first place votes)

Created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson, Dick Grayson made his debut in Detective Comics #38, just eleven issues after Batman first appeared. His origin was about as succinct as you would like…

He served as Batman’s partner for nearly four decades before their relationship began to deteriorate a bit, mostly over Robin’s role with the Teen Titans. Eventually, Dick decided to give up the Robin identity entirely and debut a brand-new one, based in both his history with Batman as well as his history with other superheroes, spotlighting Dick’s rare (at the time) role in having one foot in both worlds…

Man, they couldn’t even give Nightwing’s debut his own freakin’ page? Seriously?

After time, though, Dick decided to give up on the world of over-the-top superheroing and became a part of the Bat-books once again, with a new costume reflecting his darker role. He took up residence in a town near Gotham where he could make his own way, while still being close by if Batman needed any help. He solidified himself as Nightwing, but when Bruce Wayne was seemingly killed, Dick had to step up and take over the Batman mantle…

He even remained Batman for a time when Bruce Wayne returned, but eventually he decided to return to being Nightwing in the new 52. Recently, his identity was revealed to the whole world. He is now thought to be killed, but instead he will use the fact that everyone thinks he is dead to work as a secret agent. He stars in the ongoing series Grayson.
