My eyes begin to adjust more completely to the dark and I can just make out the lines of his figure crouching on my seven-drawer dresser. He doesn’t wear a cape, as I was told the Batman does, but his eyes are covered by a small mask that mostly serves to call attention to the bare skin of his face as it contrasts against his dark hair and the rest of his entirely covered body. Gloves. Boots. He’s a young man, early twenties, and even in the dark I can make out the long, lean muscles rippling under his skintight costume as he moves. I watch him for ten seconds without blinking and realize that he’s in almost constant motion.
“Call me Nightwing,” he says, his tone almost conversational, “And hand over the Sin Tzu files.”
- “Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu” by Devin Grayson and Flint Dille
[If I could post this entire chapter, I would. A secret agent named Gareth Baxter hits on Nightwing for 20 pages and talks to him about porcelain figurines while Nightwing flips around his room. It’s better than porn.]
