And Dick Grayson's preferred Bible translation is...

In Nightwing #13, Bruce Wayne comes to visit Dick Grayson (formerly Robin, now Nightwing) at his new apartment:

Huh? Nightwing has a copy of the New International Version - with a bookmark in it, even? Why? For research? It's true that some supervillains are not above leaving obscure scriptural references as clues. Personally, I think the Oxford Annotated NRSV would be much better for research purposes, but I guess he's got to be prepared for those conservative Protestant supervillains who insist on using the NIV. Of course, he may be actually reading it himself...

(Found in Nightwing: Rough Justice, 1999. Written by Chuck Dixon, penciled by Scott McDaniel, inked by Karl Story.)

If Nightwing was a real Christian his Bible would have a ribbon in it.
