About Author

Born in the land of Superman and now living in Los Angeles, Jason is a simple man who one day dreams of writing a scene where Superman punches the moon. He's worked for many companies including Walt Disney, 20th Century Fox, and Youtubers Rhett & Link. During his ever escaping free time, he produces content for his award winning Youtube channel while reading more comics than any one man should in a week.


  1. Jason/Ashely, I heard a question about which company had the first Nightwing. I think it was DC…Matthew? Didn’t Superman and ? (can’t remember…Jimmy Olsen?) would travel to the bottled city of Kandor in the Fortress of Solitude. They would become Flamebird and Nightwing in Kandor…because Superman would lose his powers when in Kandor.

    • In “Superman in Kandor” in Superman #158 (January 1963) Jimmy and Superman had to take on the identities of Flamebird and Nightwing. During the retconning of the DCU, two real Kryptonian heroes were introduced, and remembering the tales Superman told him of their adventures, Dick Grayson took on the name Nightwing when he gave up the role of Robin.
