Now Nightwing Gets All Nazi, In DC Future Series, The New Order, From Kyle Higgins And Trevor McCarthy

Nightwing: The New Order is a new series from DC Comics by Kyle Higgins and Trevor McCarthy for August. New Order being the English translation of Neuordnung, the political order which Nazi Germany wanted to impose on the conquered world. Also a popular eighties beat combo.

Of course, everyone is going Nazi right now, or at least using Nazi imagery and phrasing. Dark Knight: The Master Race, Secret Empire and now Nightwing: New Order with some familiar looking cover designs.

As Nightwing systematically plans to capture or kill all the world's superheroes and supervillains a decade in the future by assembling a team of highly trained soldiers called The Crusaders… hang on, has someone been reading Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's The Boys? Or Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill's Marshall Law?

Anyway, his team then targets his own Bat friends and Nightwing, teaming up with Batwoman, has to turn against the very thing he created.

Screen Rant got the solicit for the series, starting in August

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.

 Nick Spencer, I'm sorry, writer Kyle Higgins is quoted as saying,
 "My all-time favorite DC books throw characters we know and love into future worlds that are equal parts familiar and terrifying, laced with moral issues that aren't black and white or easily solved. Ultimately, these stories say something about our world. And that's what we are aiming to do with this Nightwing series, through the lens of a future generation of heroes."

And look what he does to Superman…
