"Sometimes you have to step out of the shadows, Bruce. Everyone needs a little light."
Nightwing is a playable character in Injustice: The First Insurgent. He is confirmed as a gadget user.
Young Richard Grayson was a trained acrobat, touring the country with his family in Haly's Circus until they were murdered in the middle of their act. The stunned young boy was taken in by millionaire Bruce Wayne, who had also lost his parents at a young age, also killed in front of his eyes. He revealed to the boy that he was working out his revenge on criminals as Batman and trained the youth to fight crime at his side as Robin. Dick grew up to become the leader of the Titans group of young heroes, eventually stepping out of his mentor's shadow by taking the new identity of Nightwing. He grew gradually more distant from Batman over the years, becoming more involved with leading the Titans and planning to marry his team-mate Starfire, though this went tragically wrong.
Recently, after spending a few months filling in for his mentor, he moved to his own city, Bludhaven, where he has trained as a police cadet and entered the largely corrupt police force. He is also leading a new group of Titans and tentatively beginning a romance with Barbara Gordon: Oracle, the former Batgirl.
