It's been the biggest on-again-off-again of DC Comics. Nightwing and Batgirl, Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon. With Starfires, Jason Todds and Bruce Waynes along the way… in Death Metal, DC Comics fans of Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon getting together got a moment together. Batman married them both. It was real but then everything got rebooted and restarted, but everything is meant to count, so who knows these days.
Which did a lot to wipe out the taste of Jason Todd and Barbara Gordon from Batman: The Three Jokers.
And a long, long way from what went down between Barbara Gordon and Bruce Wayne. Then in Future State: The Next Batman #4, they found a way to get back together before that potential future came to an end.
But in today's Nightwing #85, Barbara Gordon gets to experience her greatest fear, courtesy of The Seer and a little Scarecrow gas.
Which does a fine job putting everything into perspective for her.
And for him as well, apparently.
While Tim Drake looks on. You can fill in your own further thought bubbles. If they still did them, that is. Though in another future in today's Batman/Catwoman #8, sees another future Commissioner Dick Grayson have eyes for another. Though maybe she could choose a better name for him?
