Okay, here’s some evil fun for you guys on this Friday.
All of you are familiar with the game ‘A Million Dollars, But’ right?
Well, here’s my version of a Million Dollars, But question featuring a beloved DC character and an equally beloved DC pairing. You ready? Hear it goes:
You are a DC editor. One day, a wealthy benefactor comes along and gives you $1 Million to return Dick Grayson (now Ric Grayson) back to his true form and rightful place in the DCU as Nightwing, complete with full hair, blue-black costume, and escrima sticks.
BUT! There’s a catch! In order to get the $1 Million to ensure Nightwing’s complete return, you must agree to one editorial edict: Dick Grayson must never have a romantic relationship with Barbara Gordon ever again in comics!
Their past romantic flings are still canon, as the relationships Dick has had with countless other women through the ages, but the moment Nightwing returns, he and Barbara Gordon are forever barred from hooking up again in the pages of ANY comic book!
So, whether this is a simple Yes or No answer or you need to explain you choice, the question I want you ask yourself is: are you willing to sacrifice DickBabs in order to bring back the Nightwing we all know and love, or are you cool with keeping Ric around?
Remember, there are no second or third options. In this imaginary game, if you want our golden boy Nightwing/Dick Grayson to return for $1 Million, either DickBabs goes or Ric stays.
