That's not the same dynamic at all because Batman himself is dark, obsessive and vengeful, not a good guy saving a bad girl.

It's the granddaughter of the woman he loved, that is creepy no matter how you slice it.

Her taking the lead of her Gran's man doesn't change anything.

They didn't "date" at all. Working together, sharing a brief kiss during the final mission, and *promising* a date that never comes to pass is not "dating." The full extent of Steve's "relationship" with Peggy is What Might Have Been. That's it.

And *everything* changes based on Cap's extraordinarily unique sci-fi situation. 70 years and 2-3 generations passed him by in an instant, and he's essentially traveled through time to the future. Whatever feelings he still has for Peggy are meaningless and moot, since she's already been dead and gone to him for *70 years.*


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
