Nightwing's abilities often include peak athletic skills, acrobatics, martial arts, high tech equipment, and great detective skills, just like Batman.
Nightwing often acts as a leader to younger generations of superheroes and is very popular with the ladies. In one issue, Supergirl takes one look at Nightwing and makes out with him in an instant. Nightwing was dating Starfire at the time but Starfire was okay with it.
Nightwing was rated #5 of IGN's top 25 DC Comics Superheroes of 2013.
