NIGHTWING: THE NEW ORDER is the story of a future world without 'weapons'-where superpowers have been eliminated and outlawed. The man responsible? None other than Dick Grayson, a.k.a. Nightwing, now leader of a government task force called the Crusaders who are charged with hunting the remaining Supers. But when events transpire which turn the Crusaders' aim toward Grayson's own family, the former Boy Wonder must turn against the very system he helped create, with help from the very people he's been hunting for years-the last metahumans of the DC Universe. Don't miss this bold new vision from the team behind the New York Times bestseller BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM!

This is 'Nightwing Kills The Marvel Universe', Frank Millers 'The Night Wing', or 'Injustice, but with Nightwing, and everyone else is Superman'. What I'm saying is that Dick Grayson has removed or muted the powers of every meta-human he can. He's caused quite a number of problems by doing so. He's also increased the safety and security for the majority of the United States.
Isn't there a quote about 'Liberty' and 'Safety' that might apply here? Grayson's heart is in the right place, but he has to know that this sort of thing isn't going to stand. He really ought to have known that this sort of thing would end up getting him personally as well, given that he's in a world with super heroes.
He's one of the good ones. Just ask him.
If you like seeing your heroes tear down other heroes in the name of being right, this book is definitely for you.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
