So, I just watched the episode Disordered. Why is it that Dick came to the realization he came to in the episode 5 years earlier than in the comics? I believe he was 18 when he left Batman and became Nightwing, and it was around that time he finally realized that he didn't have to be exactly like Batman. I just think that because of the brevity of the time (two episodes -- really 3 scenes) it lessened the impact that realization could've been made into.

I think we're talking apples and oranges. Of course, we're not in continuity at all with the comics, so that's neither here nor there. We're just trying to be true to OUR version of the character. He's not leaving Batman or becoming Nightwing here. He's just had a painful epiphany, which seemed very appropriate to us given the circumstances. If you think that epiphany came to soon, well, you're absolutely entitled to that opinion. But obviously we disagree over here. C'est la vie.
