It's Only the End if You Want it to Be

Hi. So. I read your thing on Dick. And you mentioned he'd been raped twice? I know about the Catalina Flores incident, but what was the other one?

Back in the days of New Teen Titans, Mirage (who was a shape-shifter) pretended to be Kory, and Dick slept with her.

The whole storyline was just… horribly handled, basically, in every way. Kory got angry at Dick over it and basically acted like he cheated on her:

(Personally, I never did find it believable that Dick wouldn’t have known the difference myself- but the fact is, he genuinely thought she was Kory, which makes the entire thing completely nonconsensual.)

Oh, and did I mention that Dick’s teammates called him a “slut” for this? Yeah:

This was by the point where New Teen Titans was basically turning into a complete mess, which from what I understand was partly because of extreme editorial meddling. But the result was just a whole bunch of horrible storylines and OOC behavior on the part of everybody. Not fun.
