Nightwing: The New Order, is an upcoming DC Comics series from former Nightwing “New 52” and Gates of Gotham writer Kyle Higgins and Aquaman artist Trevor McCarthy coming this August. New Order is the English translation of “Neuordnung” which the Third Reich wanted to impose on Hitler’s planned conquered world.
As Nightwing plans to systematically capture or kill the world’s heroes and villains a decade into the future with armed soldiers called The Crusaders. Screen Rant got the solicit for the series, which starts 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.
Kyle Higgins is quoted as saying the following: “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.”
