Re: BEWARE Spoilers: 11.2 - DETECTIVE - Discussion Thread (Spoilers)
Like I said - he's never been KNOWN to be a sidekick by the audience. If he was in a tale or two, fine. But not really known for it. Also, Batman/Thomas wasn't a sidekick in Flashpoint. He was a supporting character, there is a difference. You don't seem to get that. I've been a comicbook reader for years just not your typical one cuz usually I'm disgusted by most comic fans. I was actually one of the few people supporting the New 52 movement when it was announced. Turned out to be ok in the end. Smallville is as much for non-comic readers as for comic fans. I've heard from many people who read the comic and have only watched the show before, and they didn't know who Nightwing was in the first place let alone Red Hood, Tim Drake or Damian. There's no "the" iconic sidekick in Smallville or if there is or was, we're yet to find out about it. There is a reason Miller chose Stephanie beside the fact that he seems to have a personal connection to the character.
