The same as the other dozen either Starfire or Batgirl choices but with a POLL.
For the Love of Nightwing - Starfire or Batgirl
My vote is for Kory aka Starfire
Dick and Kory were each other's love interests from 1980 to 1994.
Kory helped Dick with growth and maturity. They were opposites that complemented one another.
Their connection in the 1980s,1990s comics was profound and meaningful.
They were one of the most popular and iconic couples in DC at the time
Kory was quite the supportive,caring,and loyal girlfriend to Dick.
She opened him up.
She helped him take off his red tunic when he gave up being Robin.
Right before he became Nightwing, he was grateful for Kory sticking with him while he almost alienated everybody and that he loves her for that.
Dick and Kory had intimacy, tenderness, sweetness, and romance in their relationship.
Kory can put her foot down with Dick. She told him what he needed to hear and not what he wanted to hear.
DC Comics give her this description:
A princess who became a slave. A slave who became a warrior. A warrior who became one of the world’s greatest super heroes.
Dick thought this about Kory:
"A life filled with such hardships would have reduced others to despair, but not you. You fought back, looking at life as a challenge.
You're teaching me a lot, Kory.
I spent my first eighteen years living with Batman, learning how to contain my feelings. Three years with Kory's changing all that."
Kory told Dick
"If you love someone on Tamaran, you live for them and they for you."
Kory took that to heart. As a Tamaranean, she lived through her passions and emotions.
Nobody has to take my word for it.
This can be confirmed
a lot of comic pictures showing that Dick and Kory's relationship was based on love and caring with Kory being very supportive of Dick which helped him change for the better and be his own man.
I was actually Dick/Barbara fan until I learned about Kory.
After reading many Teen Titan,Titan issues, I am totally a fan of Dick/Kory now.
I believe that Dick and Kory belong together, and I hope that they reunite in the future.
They are cute couple in the Teen Titan cartoon series.
They are a couple with great chemistry in the DC Animated Movies.
There is comic page where it shows what made Dick fall in love with Kory:
It wasn't Starfire's beauty that made me fall in love with her.....
It was her freedom!
I mean the freedom to feel at home with even her strongest emotions..
The one kind of freedom that Batman wouldn't allow.
That's what I was longing for--
And that's what Kory slowly taught me to embrace!
Their relationship and love was developed slowly and gradually 2 years in the Wolfman run, New Teen Titans. It took Kory getting kidnapped by Komand'r and the Gordanians and taken to the Citadel and her looking like she was dead after being beaten and tortured for Dick to admit his romantic love feelings for Kory and they got into a relationship soon after that.
