My observation’s not mainly about the 2003 TV show
(No offense but it’s for kids, granted there are a few things to cherry pick. I’ve simply grown out of it [I’m 23]).
I think it is about time. If Raven really does have to pair up with anyone it would have to be one of Batman’s wards. They played around with the idea with Grayson in The New Teen Titans, the 2003 cartoon, also hinted some affection with Tim Drake in The New 52. The DCAMU has sealed the deal basically with Damian; that cotton candy scene – even though it lasted a few seconds-- it was really calm and soothing. I really wish it was longer.
In fact there’s some real good potential for some real epic tales to be told if one takes into account with both Damian and Raven’s common staples and themes regarding their backgrounds, personalities, and the age old story of the tragic hero.
If anyone here has invested some input in:
- Batman #666
- Batman, Incorporated Vol. 2 #5
- Raven’s arc in the 2003 animated series
- the video game Spec Ops: The Line
- and the Manga/Anime Berserk
then you’ll know what I’m thinking. Most deep, and epic tale of a tragic romance. I’d dig it. In fact, I aim to stay alive as long as possible to see if it happens in my lifetime.
