Nightwing wants to break Batman's comic book rule for a good cause

One of Batman's most canonical rules is that, despite being tough on criminals, he never kills them. Now Dick Grayson, the first Robin and current Nightwing, is considering breaking that sacred rule for what he believes is a good reason in Teen Titans Academy #10, published in the US.

Rather than immediately rejecting the idea, the Titans consider it. Surprisingly, even her leader, Nightwing, seems to think about her, angering student Stitch. While he stresses that it's just a worst-case alternative and that they'll only try to capture the student, he still hasn't ruled out the option, presumably for the good of the world.

It's not the first time Nightwing has thought about killing. In fact, he has already broken the Dark Knight's sacred rule in the past. In Joker: Last Laugh #6 (by Chuck Dixon and Scott Beaty, published in 2002), it looked like the Joker had killed Tim Drake. This, combined with the trauma of Jason Todd's death, was enough to lead Dick to end the Joker threat for good. The villain was revived shortly afterwards and the hero regretted it at the same time, but that still didn't change the fact that he had crossed the classic superhero moral line.
