I felt like posting some Babs/Ted interactions so here ya go (I discovered on DA some people don’t actually know about this happening.)
Basically Ted and Barbara meet by chance on the internet and set up a date, figure out each others’ secret identities, and compliment each other on how smart they are.
It’s sort of a weird relationship because I think Ted’s supposed to be *at least* Bruce’s age so I wouldn’t really expect it to work out but I still like it. This is also the timeframe in which we find out Ted’s had multiple heart attacks without knowing after Barbara makes him go to the doctor since he’s still getting worn out even after losing weight and exercising regularly. They never went anywhere with that and apparently it was going to play into a storyline they’d set up that executives decided to cancel.
Not everybody likes the BoP version of Ted because of his seriousness but honestly I think he’s fairly witty for Chuck Dixon’s writing (I like Dixon a lot actually but humor’s not really one of his fortes.)
I also appreciate him creating this friendship between two of my favorite characters.
Their relationship’s never been exactly solid from writer-to-writer; in BoP they agree to ‘just be friends’, Ted later expresses a crush on Barbara on several occasions to which she’s ‘meh’ to; in the Super Buddies timeline Barbara’s the one asking Ted on a date and calling him ‘handsome’ to which he expresses surprise.
Also, who holds hands sitting next to each other like that? Apparently Babs and Ted do.
Oracle is so adorable when Butch Guice draws her though, oh my goodness.
Well, I liked it.
