Guys, I think it’s finally here. Batman Urban Legends Tim Drake Story has a ton of signs as Tim Drake does a couple big things that have very clear queer implications.
- Tim Drake and Stephanie broke up again.
When Oracle asks Tim he wants Spoiler to come help him as back up. He tells her to “Drop it, Barbara, and stop talking to my ex about me.”
Batman Urban Legends reveals that the on and off again couple in off, as Stephanie and Tim have broken up. If DC wants to explore Tim’s sexuality, it’s easier to tell that story with a single Tim Drake.
- A key line Barbara says and Tim’s response:
Tim Responds in his head
“Is Oracle right, am I too scared to–” before his thought is interupted.
This is very similar to conversations that tend to go with “You are missing something about yourself. We’ve been reading the signs and thing you need to figure out who you are.” This line comes a couple exchanges after the line from part 1.
- Tim Drake’s “date”
In his efforts to take some time off from Superheroing. Tim Drake meets up with a friend Bernard (a character from pre-flashpoint) who Tim Drake gets along very well with. When Tim Drake sees him. He says something that only has a couple responses. He says “It feels like it’s been years, but he still looks…he looks…”
Maybe this isn’t a date, but it has a lot of similarities.
- The artist, Belen Ortega, liked multiple comments calling the above moment a date.
So while it’s not official, by all accounts, it looks like Tim Drake is beginning a coming out story, and I CAN’T WAIT!!!
