Questions In Regards to Earth-16's Nightwing:

1. Is his full name Richard John "Dick" Grayson?

2. Because his father and cousin shared the same first name (John), did he address his cousin by any nicknames, and if so, then what were they?

3. Does he have a older paternal half-sister named Melinda; just like in the comics?

4. How did he come up with the name Nightwing for his current superhero code name?

1. Anonymous, based on your previous questions, where you put the nicknames in quotation marks and then treat them as if they are some kind of official part of a character's name (even to the point where you seemed to care whether or not the nickname came before or after the middle name), I'm hesitant to answer your question as you've written it, for fear of misinterpretation. I will say that "Dick" is short for Richard.

2. Dick addressed his cousin as Johnny. He addressed his father as Dad.

3. No spoilers. But I'll admit to being allergic to long-lost close relatives that we've never heard of before suddenly showing up. Still, no spoilers.

4. No spoilers.
