“Better than Batman” part two! Nightwing and his new mentor Raptor embark on their first assignment for the Parliament of Owls. Will Raptor prove himself a superior mentor for Nightwing? Or will they both fall prey to the fangs of Kobra?

I really hope that this issue ups the stakes because Nightwing swinging around and whispering to people that "The Owls Are Watching" doesn't seem like a big leap from superhero to villain in my book...... just really, a weirdo messenger.  Also, I hope to find out what the hell is up with Raptor's gauntlet because I was completely lost on that front.
