Publisher: DC Comics

In the beginning of this story Nightwing and Black Canary take out several street thugs. Black Canary relates to Nightwing in such a way, that it seems like it is beneath her to take out ordinary criminals and Nightwing corrects her statement and explains no matter how petty the crime, it's still important to take out the bad guys on whatever level. He even expresses his admiration of a store clerk who thwarts a robbery. Nightwing shows he is a true blue hero in every sense of the word.

Then I better mention that there is some tension going on between Black Canary and Barbara 'Babs' Gordon. There is an appearance from Metamorpho - The Element Man and talk of some old DC villains like Despero, late Doctor Light and Felix Faust. In fact Felix Faust is the main focus of this story. Artwork is mediocre.
