l ol I love it how Dick Grayson’s own series repeatedly craps on his significant relationship with Kory, which happens to be one of my favorite relationships for him.
spoiler alert, ‘he didn’t love her all that much,’ says every recent writer ever.
It amazes me how many people seem to be so terribly confused about this, given that Dick himself seemed pretty definite on the issue:
Even when he was having doubts about their relationship, their love was always the one thing he was certain of.
It was always “I love you, but I’m not sure if I can handle that you’re in a political marriage”,
or “I love you, but I’m not sure I’m ready to move in together”,
or “I love her, but I feel strange about living with someone I’m not married to”
You know which part of this was NEVER in doubt?
THAT HE REALLY FREAKING LOVED THIS GIRL.
TRULY AND DEEPLY
HEAD-OVER-HEELS IN LOVE WITH HER.
But, y’know, why take Dick’s word about that, amirite? It’s not like she was the only woman he had eyes for for years, or like he planned to make a life with her and kept trying to make that happen no matter how many obstacles kept being thrown their way, or like he consistently talked about how amazing she was or how much he learned from her as a person. Nope, purely a case of physical infatuation, clearly. Nothing deep or important there.
