They might come into their own, but I'd rather they did it as Dick did - in their own right, rather than in someone else's costume. I'd rather see Nightwing than Dickbats, other than in fairly short runs to show how he handles it and contrast with Bruce.
Oh I firmly agree. Dick was successful as Nightwing, and he could be Batman, but he was successful as Nightwing. I want Sam-as-Falcon to be as successful, Rhodey-as-War Machine, John-as-Steel etc. Sam-as-Cap may be successful, but it feels like he's still in Steve's shadow.
(I've said in the past that Steel should be DC's Iron Man, successful businessman and power armor user. Superman can be his inspiration, like how people are inspired irl by the comics as kids, or many scientists cite Star Trek as what 'got them into' science. But a John Henry enterprises that builds robotics and light exoskeletions to help people, and he builds the Steel armor to be a hero would rock.)
Of course, with Secret Wars, we might have a universe where Tony, Thor, and Steve are out of the picture, and a new Iron Man, Thora, and Falcap are the 'default'.
