How about no on the Valerie thing. He dated her for about what?....A week?...A month tops?
I like to forget she existed if I can.
He's had a pretty long standing crush on Rose Wilson but with very little reciprocated feelings. His longest standing girlfriend was Carol Bucklen from the Impulse comics. They had been best friends through most of the series and ended up dating, but unfortunately she along with all his other friends, family members and pets from the Impulse serious were lost to comic oblivion and apparently forever forgotten. And actually he tends to show very little interest in girls (or any people in particular really) when he's being written correctly, often finding himself baffled by Kon when he would fall over himself over women. It takes quite a bit to actually hold his attention. To quote Mark Waid (because I actually really love this aspect of the character and miss it very much) "One of the key notes to Bart, at least in the two years that Humberto and I did his book, was that Bart didn't have a single surging hormone in his body anywhere. It wasn't that he didn't like girls. He didn't like anybody! Okay, that's not true. But Bart doesn't think beyond his own immediate sphere of influence.It's not that he doesn't care about people, it's just that he doesn't think about other people. And he doesn't have any use for romance because he's still developmentally, a three-year-old boy at this point." By now he would be about a five or six year's old maybe? But I still love the idea.
@Primmaster64: I wish he was, that would be neat. Some writers (or at the very least some artists) seem to heavily (in my opinion) imply it, but then others seem determined to make him super strait. It's odd to see it play out. I have a feeling editorial would never let him be gay though...no matter how high in demand the idea may be. He could just be bi-sexual, but I doubt they would go for that either.
Never again with Tim/Cassie. That was a pairing I believe, never should have happened. It was a train wreck. From what I saw most of their relationship revolved around, yelling at each other, crying at each other, and reminiscing about Superboy. It was a pairing built on the grounds that they were both miserable and desperately needed comfort. It was constantly brought up though out there entire relationship. When they were trying to be sweet and romantic, it always seemed rather forced to me, and it never seemed to last for very long.
Personally, I'm in favor of the gay/or bi Robin. I like the one sided little love ditty thing he has for Superboy. But…I have to be realistic with myself. That’s not going to happen. Even if it did turn out that he did indeed have a thing for Superboy (as I and so very many others believe), I highly doubt Superboy would reciprocate.
I did kind of like the Steph/Tim. It was cute (or at least the very few bits of it I saw, which…admittedly wasn’t much). But don’t she have a baby now? Or was I just mislead? I’m not sure I can see Tim dealing too well with a baby right now on top of everything else. Then again, maybe a little child interaction will do him some good.
@spidey 15: Mmm...I don't know abaout that. Waid has pure insanity on his side, it can pretty off putting even to experienced characters. He almost took down Wolverine once. As some one said already it really depends who's writing for him. Same for Slade. He can be awesome, or he can get his butt handed to him by a teen who hasn't been at it for nearly as long as he has. It's still pretty much a draw in my head. It would be fun to see. Poor Deadpool if he lost. In comic he probably would end up losings, just for comedic reasons. Unless something was actually riding on the fight.
