A moment I’ve been thinking about a lot from Teen Titans came from “Haunted”, where Raven used her Soul Self in an attempt to free Robin from Slade’s hallucination.The more I think about that interaction, the more I have to agree with neopuff that this is a sneaky-important moment between the two Titans.
I think we the audience take for granted the mythos and origin story of the Robin (Dick Grayson) character, and thus potentially forget just how important the moment is in the context of Raven and Robin’s relationship in the show, where we can plausibly assume that the other Titans are not the most aware of Robin’s backstory.
Indeed, the two are friends and implicitly trust one another, but Raven entering the Boy Wonder’s mind is just a much more intimate level of understanding and empathy conducted by the former. She is beginning to grasp why Robin is who he is today, and his motives behind his pursuit of crimefighting within his formative years and beyond (in spite of the risks involved). She is feeling the very sensitive information that is only known by a handful of Robin’s closest allies. Once she stumbles onto this sort of biological data, she will never ever see Robin in the same light again (and vice versa). I don’t think there is any other pair of Titans in the show that has this type of relationship.
This moment sets the stage for the Season Four arc, when Robin enters Raven’s mind and uncovers her motivations, in a way coming full circle.
TO BE CONTINUED! I’m sorry again for the delay. But here’s a list of reasons why it took so long. Despite being essentially bullied into making this new page, I still had fun drawing it. And I even livestreamed it. :’) it took 5 HOURS AND 44 MINUTES TO FINISH THIS. I never want to hear anyone complain that it takes me too long to update ever again. I’ll try to update more often but I can’t make any promises when school starts up again. The comic isn’t over yet, btw. There will be a few more parts. Until next time,
DO NOT REPOST OR EDIT, REBLOGGING IS FINE/ENCOURAGED. I will report you for reposting.
Thanks for all the support, those of you who don’t bully me and steal my art. Have a good night!
*ALSO- You pronounce her name “Roar-uh” as in “Aurora”.
