I have provided scans of the pages Dick appears in. The text is too small to read... this is deliberate. The purpose of the scans is to show other fans the scope of Dick's role. If you want to read, you will need to buy a copy of the comic... and support DC writers and artists.

Title:
Part 3: Gemini
Story Arc:
-
After:
Part 2
Next:
Part 4
Summary:

When the doppelganger attacks Nightwing he quickly deduces that it isn't Gar. Before he can capture it, Flamebird appears to 'help' enabling the doppelganger to escape. Dick then disguises himself and bails Gar out of jail respecting his friend's need to deal with this himself. Nightwing then suggests to Bette that she hang up her spandex... which she ignores. Gar unravels the clues and discovers the person responsible - apparent Madame Rouge the person responsible for the deaths of the original Doom Patrol.

Dick characterisation is a little shallow and almost cold to Bette in this story. He is shown to be competent, which is how I like him portrayed, but he lacked the people skills Dick is known for. Actually he acts more like Bruce, judging another. All in all, pretty average.
