Nightwing has a new girlfriend in Young Justice: Outsiders.
SPOILERS FOR THIS WEEKS EPISODES OF YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS
Two years have passed between the second and third seasons of Young Justice. In that time a couple of familiar characters have been getting awfully close. Those characters? Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon, otherwise known as Nightwing and Oracle.
In the sixth episode of Outsiders, we are treated to a physical appearance from Barbara Gordon in her role as Oracle (wheelchair and all), as she had been helping Nightwing in tracking down and preventing trafficking rings involving meta-humans. They share a kiss later on in the episode, confirming that they are more than just partners in the battlefield.
Barbara Gordon had appeared as Batgirl earlier on in the series, including an episode of the second season where she teamed up with Cassie Sandsmark/Wonder Girl to prevent Lobo from capturing a U.N. Secretary General (who turned out to be an alien). It would be logical to assume then, that the events of The Killing Joke, in which Barbara is shot and paralyzed by The Joker, have taken place already in the Young Justice universe. Whether we get to see the characters acknowledge this event in the future is another story, but anything is possible. In the meantime, we’ll keep you up-to-date on this season.
What did you think of Oracle’s appearance on Young Justice: Outsiders? Are you glad that she and Nightwing are a couple already? Leave your thoughts in the comments!!
