Nightwing fan writes...

Hi Greg,

I was just re-reading some of the JLA and Teen Titans comics and was once again impressed by Nightwing's leadership skills. In most comics he's portrayed as being the ultimate leader, surpassing even Batman because of his excellent interpersonal skills.

My question is:
What was the reasoning behind making Nightwing only temporary team leader in YJ season 2? In season 1 Kaldur said Dick was born to lead the team, but to be perfectly honest, I haven't seen much evidence of that. It seemed to me he still had a lot to learn about what it means to be a leader. Was this your goal? To show that the road to becoming a good leader is a rocky one?


Greg responds...

I'm a bit confused by elements of your question, frankly. Nightwing wasn't temporary Team leader in Season Two. He WAS Team Leader. Then he stepped down at the end of the season for reasons that I think are quite understandable. I think he did a great job as a leader. If you didn't see evidence of that, we'll just have to agree to disagree.

But yes, the road to becoming a good leader is rocky.
