Jason and Supergirl?

So I saw the solicit for Supergirl coming up featuring Jason, and I also recently read an interview stating that Supergirl would be featuring a new love interest for Kara. I'll post the solicit bellow for reference, but I was thinking with their previous encounter being mostly nice (Superman/Batman annual #1), and with Jason appearing in Supergirl, I think it could be possible that he is her new love interest.

Here is the link to the article:

http://www.newsarama.com/21872-supergirl-gets-fresh-start-in-october-new-love-interest-but-no-red-ring.html

Here is the solicit:

“SUPERMAN: DOOMED AFTERMATH”! In the waked of the DOOMED storyline, the ALIEN SYNDICATE looks to re-establish it’s foothold on Earth. But the venom powered Red Hood looks for even more muscle in Kara as they go head to head with the scum and villainy of the galaxy. Plus: an ending that will set Kara on a new course!

Thoughts?

I don't think Jason Todd will be her new love interest nor do I want him to be. I think that it's important for these two characters (unless they're in a team book together) to have a love interest come from WITHIN their own universes instead of mashing two separate character universes up, because one is a street leveler and one is cosmic-powered. Not to mention Supergirl is a teenager, I don't know why people keep forgetting this.

It seems to me that Supergirl's love interest is going to be Michael (aka the black dude in a wheelchair). Based on reading the interview, the writer Tony Bedard seemed to indicate that Kara getting a love interest and her teaming up with Red Hood are two separate things. However, we will see.

see i thought about this really hard and at first i like the idea( keep in mind kara is actually older because of the space travel mumbo jumbo) but the fact that jason is more street level would basically make this another roy x starfire. speaking of which, when are they ever going to follow up on roy's hanging plot with cheshire. she did rescue him simply for being a good guy. starfire needs to move on anyway, being with roy hasn't done any good for her.

I just cant see that working out well but base on their interaction in the B/S Annual I would like if she became a part time member of the Outlaws or just they do more team ups.

@youknowwhattodo: @frozen: there is only a 2 years difference, it's not like Jason is in his 30's or anything.

It doesn't matter if he's in his 20's or 30's, he is a legal adult and she is a minor, it won't look right. There is a reason why Supergirl hasn't been paired up with the big name male characters of the DCU despite fan interest, it's because of her youth. Besides, what good could possibly come from Supergirl and Jason dating, it is very, very difficult to write a romantic pairing involving a cosmic level character with their own universe with a street level character with their own separate universe as well. The only time it works is when they only exist in that particular comic they are in. I don't have any faith that either of the writers of these characters have the creativity (and editorial freedom) needed to make that pairing work.

As I've alluded to before, don't get your hopes up that this team-up is going to lead to a romantic relationship between Jason and Kara. Michael (the guy in the wheelchair) is going to be her love interest. Jason will likely be a big brother figure for Kara for a few issues to help deal with her anger, and I think that for a few issues that would work pretty well.

I remember when Lady Shiva was announced to make her debut in Nightwing and that she was going to be younger. The fanbase actually thought (not kidding here) that Dick and Lady Shiva were going to get into a romantic relationship and some even speculated that Cassandra Cain was going to be the child of Dick and Sandra.

It didn't happen.

@youknowwhattodo: Age of consent varies from state to state. Many have it at 16. Besides that, there is a 3-year slider for these types of cases. If one of the partners is more than 3 years older than the minor, then they'll be charged with the full extent of the law. But if it's 3 or less, then no on is really going to bother them about it. At least, that's what I've heard anyways.

I ship it. It would be good to see an actual Superbat relationship and these two have much in common regarding overcoming their pasts and being in a good place at the moment. Can't wait for next month's issue when they team up again.

I know from researching criminal cases that law enforcement has bothered to continue the case even if the age difference is less than 3. I don't know if the whole "it varies from state to state" really helps because can you imagine on DC: ALL ACCESS, the creators of the Supergirl defending the pairing saying "well age of consent is different in many states and in some states if the age different is less than 3 they won't bother", it won't end well lol.

But seriously there was another point that I made that I think has been overlooked and that is you should never, ever romantically pair up a cosmic-powered character with their own universe with a street-level character with their own separate universe because it very rarely works. The only times it does work is when those two characters only exist in book that they are paired in (often team books) and even then it doesn't always work. One of the main problems that RHATO has is the fact that there is a cosmic-powered character teaming up with two street-level characters and romantically pairing up Jason and Kara would be making things worse.

I would give my opinion, but even I know that my crush on Supergirl makes me too biased to be trusted.

Also, isn't Jason a little old for her?

Maybe this time it could work though? You never know. Just because something hasn't worked before, doesn't mean it never can. I don't see why powers and universes should separate two people if they actually care about each other.

And yes, I realize that sounds extremely cheesy, but don't let that get in the way of something that could potentially work.

So how exactly would they even bang without him getting rekt anyway ? I couldnt even see MetaHumans like Slade or Azrael getting it on with supergirl without getting killed.

Unless Kryptonians have some amazing control over the force they use then She would Kill him literally with a hug let alone breaking his hand with a handshake.
