Nightwing is a superhero published by DC Comics. First appearing in Superman #158 (January 1963) as an identity used by Superman whilst trapped in the bottled city of Kandor, it was adopted by a former Robin after he left Batman to fight crime on his own. The character has become one of DC's most famous characters and a core member of the Teen Titans. Nightwing has been available in the Superheroes Unlimited mod since version 1.4. Previously available via crafting, his suit can be accessed though the Suit Assembly Unit and worn by the player, giving them access to his abilities, weapons and equipment.

Backstory

Though the most famous person to use the mantle of Nightwing is Richard "Dick" Grayson, the actual identity has been closely associated with Superman's home planet Krypton. In the Silver Age, Superman created the identity when trapped in the bottled city of Kandor after accidently been shrunk with Jimmy Olsen. Deciding to become superheroes in the city whilst they figured out a way to resize themselves, Superman, inspired by Batman, took on the name Nightwing whilst Jimmy used the alias of Flamebird. After managing to unshrink themselves, they recounted their stories to the superhero community and people at the Daily Planet.

In the Post-Crisis storylines, Nightwing was a legend from Krypton that Jor-El had told a young Superman about. According to him, this Nightwing was a Kryptonian nobleman who had been cast out by his family for wanting to get involved with crime fighting. These stories may have been some inspiration for Clark Kent to become the Man of Steel in the first place. After leaving the role of Robin when he outgrew it, Grayson decided to use the Nightwing identity as his new superhero alias, creating a new costume and modifying some of his old Bat-Gadgets to fit it. With Superman's permission, he took on the identity whilst he and the Teen Titans were under attack by the superhuman assassin Deathstroke.

Following this adventure, Dick became the leader of the team and settled down in Blüdhaven, a crime ridden city near Gotham. Other characters have also taken on the identity as Nightwing, notably Jason Todd during the Battle for the Cowl storyline, Cheyenne Freemont, a fashion designer and a friend of Grayson, and Christopher Kent, the biological son of General Zod and adopted son of Superman.
