[Batman - Earth One]
Steph: Tapping out already Supey?
Kon: Just thought you might like a go in the ring babe.
So in light of recent events I’m updating my head canon to explain this ‘neither can live while the other survives’ policy that DC seems to have going. It’s a team sport and when the characters get sick of what’s happening they tap out and their partner takes their place.
Admittedly it’s not a perfect system, most of the older characters/first sidekicks tend to stick around because family generally replaces family and they’d rather be out there than have their children or younger siblings get involved.
Steph and Kon get to be fight club buddies because they’re both on team ‘Keep Tim (relatively) Sane.’
Yes, I know that this doesn’t explain everything and yes, I’m worried about what DC will do to the characters once they’re back in comics but I’m so sick of getting angry about fictional characters that I’m just going to focus on the good for a little while.
I’ll just be here in my happy little bubble if you need me. :)
