Batman Family 9
Let’s all spare a thought for poor Lori Elton.
Vintage Dick & Babs!
I have to admit, while this is cute, what makes it so awesome to me IS Lori. Because she is such a Lavender Brown, only twenty years before Lavender Brown was a thought in J.K. Rowling’s mind. She is so jealous and territorial, and I probably should feel bad for her (because who wouldn’t get possessive if a gorgeous and awesome redhead was hugging their boyfriend?), but instead I just want to laugh and laugh.
Although I do enjoy how Babs is all “Oh… uh, hey there, Random Blondie. I totally didn’t see you there” in the second panel. BURN! Babs is too cool for these games, y’all.
(Also: Now I’m mentally finishing that sentence different ways. “Oh… uh, hey there Random Blondie. I totally didn’t see you there, because I was too busy being awesome.” “Oh… uh, hey there, Random Blondie. I totally didn’t see you there, because I was too busy hugging my future soulmate.” XD I am so weird.)
And Dick is just like “… Well, this is awkward.” LOL.
Also: I totally want Barbara’s yellow coat-dress.
(I should also probably clarify that I know next to nothing about Lori Elton, and it’s possible that she was an amazing and well-rounded character and she and Dick had a beautiful relationship. But until proven otherwise, my head-canon is that she was a Lavender Brown clone who, like, gave Dick lockets with their initials on it, and went around shrieking “I HAPPEN to be his girlfriend!” all the time. BECAUSE I SAID SO. Do not disabuse me of my head-canons!)
