It's Nightwing time! Good luck getting a copy of Future State: Teen Titans #2 from DC Comics today, as some folk have been playing silly buggers on eBay and driving the price sky high over the appearance of Red X. I mean, not that they are going to reveal who Red X is in this, it is clearly still a mystery in Titans Academy out in March. The art from Infinite Frontier #0 shows you that it is still off the cards.
You are still not meant to know who he is. That has not stopped people selling copies of the Red X cardstock cover for $15 today on eBay. You know, when people realise he's Clownhunter, I hope they have copies of the Batman #96 1:25 cover on on hand.
However, while in Infinite Frontier #0, people are now referring to Black Adam as Shazadam (unless DC Comics decide to edit that out before printing and call him Monarch instead as a result of reaction to Bendis' floated balloon), it looks like Nightwing may be getting a new nickname himself in Future State: Teen Titans.
The first issue ended with Red X and Nightwing changing up costumes and Nightwing dressing with the Deathstroke mask.
Which was enough for Cyborg in this week's Teen Titans: Future State #2.
Dickstroke. Like he doesn't have enough problems going on with his name…
