All the excitement over the tweet that people may have confused with an actual DC news release has had the unexpected side effect of bringing up some old anger.
Look. I get wanting Bluepulse to be canon! I’d love Bluepulse to be canon, as long as its kept appropriate to the fact that Bart, when the show ended, was twelve years old.
Time skip to where the three year age gap between him and Jaime is less creepy? That’d be GREAT. If not though, I really hope you guys don’t expect to see any action beyond some hand holding and the relatively chaste kissing like what Zatanna and Robin got up to @ the end of Season 1. Because, again–Bart is twelve.
THAT BEING SAID.
I’m a little annoyed that the trend of ignoring Kaldur, who is the only character Greg Weisman has ever acknowledged/hinted at being queer (with the back up of Young Justice comic tie-in artist Christoper Jones).
Like. Y’all. I love Bart. I love Jaime. I would love to have all three of them be queer. Hell, I’d love for the whole fucking cast of Season 3 to be queer. Bart and/or Jaime being one of the queer characters in YJ is not what I have an issue with.
