Jason and Dick chat

A moment between these two that doesn't involve either getting their junk punched.

I don't know about you, but I would say this is a clear anti-hero moment for Jason. (And then along came ... well, you know.)

From Outsiders 44 & 45. Eight scans.

 Is that last panel pretty much a slasher's fantasy or what?

As written by Winick, pre- BftC, (obviously, since now Jason eats babies or the souls of young cherubic children or something.)

I think Tim's "fascist leader" problems aren't about his willingness to kill, they're about his oft-shown desire to want to control people in order to have order. He sets his enemies up as Death and Chaos, two things he will never beat, and strives to think of people more like chess pieces than people so that he's not distracted by emotion. That's what gives him the possible road to supervillain-dom.

I know and well put! He wants to micro-manage the whole world, and I LOVE the little freak to death for it. Hee! Oh, Bats, you're all batshit crazy obsessive-compulsive paranoid control freaks. Except Dick, who just has too many Daddy issues than he can handle, poor boy. Well, up until recently.

Tim Drake = making control freak Voldemortesque ambitions seem like adorable character quirks since 1987.
