We love it when news stories actually leave us more confused than when we began. Take, for instance, IGN's nugget that Jonathan Smith, head of production at Traveller's Tales, recently let fly with a few details about Lego Batman during a public unveiling of Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga.
IGN said Smith related that "Batman villains Nighthawk and Man-Bat are among the denizens of Gotham City who'll make it into the game." We'll let the fanboys froth for a sentence while we explain to the rest of you why that's so odd. ... As far as we know, there is no Batman villain named Nighthawk. Now, if we can geek out on you for a moment, there is a Nighthawk who's a cowboy who's appeared in a couple of Robin annuals. There's also Nightwing, a moniker used by (among others) Dick Grayson, after he got too old for the Robin gig. There's also a third possibility of Nighthawk being a new creation, but with such a deep rogue's gallery to draw on, that seems kind of pointless.
We've emailed IGN for clarification, hopefully we'll have something soon.
Lego Batman to include Man-Bat and ... Nighthawk?
