Posted on June 13, 2008, Stephany Watch Nightwing Slap Some Bad Guys Around in the New LEGO Batman Trailer
Yesterday, Jonathan posted some screens from LEGO Batman featuring Bane, Clayface and Nightwing. Today we have a trailer up featuring Nightwing in all his glory. If you are unsure who Nightwing is, he was originally in the Superman comics, later had his own and has appeared in various incarnations over the years. His most recent one is best summed up by Wikipedia:
Nightwing (like his mentor Batman) has many different gadgets that he uses to defeat his enemies. Most of the gadgets are in the form of small boomerangs; some of them explode, some spread liquid nitrogen to freeze objects, and some are just sharp, which he uses to disarm but not kill. Along with his boomerangs he has a grappling gun, a taser and a retractable quarter staff which measures at six feet long at maximum length and one foot long at minimum length. Nightwing has trained in many different martial arts including Hapkido, Tae-Kwon-Do, Jeet Kune Do, Kumdo, Escrima, Tai Chi, Hapkido, Wing Chun, Aikido, Ninjutsu, Kempo, Karate, Jujutsu, and Judo. Nightwing is also an experienced gymnast and spent several years of his youth in the circus. Along with skills with gadgetry and martial arts, Nightwing is exceedingly intelligent. He uses his detective skills and tactics to out think physically superior opponents.
If I had tried to sum up Nightwing’s existence using my personal Batman and other comic book knowledge, it would have sounded like a college thesis so thanks to Wikipedia for making it easier on us all.
Enjoy the trailer.
