Ever since Dick Grayson left Gotham and moved to the city of Blüdhaven, the former Robin the Boy Wonder sure has had a rough go of it. From dating (and breaking up with) a cool, ex-costumed criminal, to facing off against crime boss Blockbuster, it’s been tough for Nightwing to keep his head above water since DC Comics started its Rebirth initiative.
But the biggest challenge facing Nightwing since moving to his new hometown has been an old case from his past as Robin, a serial killer called the Judge, who has the ability of compelling others to commit heinous crimes by speaking names of former, Supreme Court judges. Sure, it sounds silly — until you are on the receiving end of his machinations, that is. Dick has been after this twisted killer since college, will he finally be able to bring him down now?
