All about Dick’s testosterone levels as Robin. Perhaps even now, too.

And I mean, being Robin in itself would be enough to get any boy’s testosterone levels to skyrocket. I bet Leslie tested them all to check that they didn’t have too high levels. ;) Bruce would probably benefit from some oestrogen to not be so angry. :P I’m half-joking, but I do think that if I’d been Leslie I think I’d want to test those boys just to be on the safe side.

This is funny. :) But it also reminds me of another thing, namely the main accusaiton against Dick when it comes to Dick and Babs romantic relationship: Namely the fact that he constantly lives in the past, making her remember all kinds of things from the ‘good old days’.

Which in part is true. But it’s mostly true for Devin Grayson’s Nightwing era. And she wrote this issue too, so it fits into that canon. For someoene who lives so much in the here and now it seems a little off to live so much in the past as Dick apparently does in this canon.

Let’s start by talking about the art. It’s mostly fine. But there’s something about some of the panels with Dick’s face and his too-wide body that doesn’t sit quite right IMHO. It’s just my taste. DIck shouldn’t be quite as  wide-chested. If you haven’t read this, be prepared for a lot of half-naked Dick. I estimate that he’s half-naked in half of the pages in this issue. :) That is something I do not complain about!

Dick wakes from a nightmare, screaming. He doesn’t understand how badly he was injured. Babs tries to explain it to him but Dick just wants to get out of bed. Being put in drug-induced coma is extremely serious. I kept thinking about this (I’m a medical geek, sorry) and I think this is the worst Dick has been injured. He seems to jump back from impossible injuries but as we’ll see here he’s really struggling to just get back on his feet.
