Well, if we can get Wonder Girl making her O face, we can have Robin doing what he does best. (IMHO)
This was one of the more popular posts I made on SD_1.0 two years ago, and whilst I apologise I don't have anything new to post at the moment, since we're on a New Teen Titans kink kick, time for some equal opportunity perving. (Now with added cover fun!)
As requested, the covers for the story in question... I include the cover for 21 (though everything I post is from 22) because you get another fine example of equal opportunity groping, and sweet Lord, didn't Dick always looks so darned cute when he was all vulnerable?
George Perez has been known to draw many a dazzling damsel, and sometimes in scantily clad distress, but clearly felt it was payback time in New Teen Titans 22 in 1982 when it was the ever popular Dick Grayson's turn to go through a bit of stripping and chaining up. And God bless him for it!
The story so far; infiltrating the evil cult leader Brother Bloods "Church of Blood" after Cyborg's first girlfriend was killed trying to escape them, the Titans have faced off against Brother Blood himself, and been defeated. Here he sorts through his captives, and decides he want's to take "the non-powered one, the boy called Robin" away for some schemes of his own. Clearly it's the exposed chest which convinces him! Also note that Brother Blood is strong enough to casually pick Robin up by the utility belt without even straining, and ensures that he takes personal responsibility for transporting the Teen Wonder (Wouldn't we all)
After a quick chat with a corrupt politician Blood decides to pay a visit to his personal project... The pictures on the wall mean nothing to him, but clearly brightly clad acrobats do... make of that what you will! :)
And his Confessor has gone to some length to make sure that he's manacled his prisoner properly and is displaying enough captive Robin to keep the boss (and us) happy.
Note that the "electronic lash" doesn't leave a mark on the skin, but does remove clothing... Whatever he spent on R&D on that thing was more than worth it! Meanwhile, back at Titans Tower, the Titans LESS suited to undercover work (being orange, green and shiny silver) debate tactics
Things are stepping up in the "Let's torture Robin stakes" in Blood's Confessional ! I confess that reading this for the first time my first thought was "Boy, he's got nice teeth!".. well, actually my first thought was either "Woof! or whatever the equivalent of "SQUEEEEE!" was back then... Note the exposed chest, the tattered costume, the nicely toned... well, darn near EVERYTHING and if profuse sweating is remotely a turn on, then your luck's in!
I'm also not sure that it's physically possible to be in the position Dick is in in the last panel, but he IS the bendy Robin...
Most chilling bit is the fact that after torturing the worlds best looking sidekick and failing to break his spirit, Brother Blood actually forgives the Confessor because he'd tried his best, and whatever information Robin had wasn't THAT important. That's one cold evil dude!
Now, just remember that for the rest of the issue, Robin is running around wearing only his trunks, pixie boots, gloves and mask. That alone should give you the warm fuzzies... Being dunked into a dungeon full of slime isn't exactly glamorous but just pretend that it's green bath foam or something and it becomes a lot more appealling as a concept.
So after being tortured and dumped into a cellar with his unconscious friends and a killer giant spider, we see that NOTHING stops our Teen Wonder, who proceeds to go into an acrobatic routine to save them, and plants a drop kick into the beasties eye!
As you read the next page just remember; The wonderful thing about Robin's is Robin's are wonderful things! Their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are.... (sorry where was I, I got distracted by the notion of Robin's bottom for a moment)! They're bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy! (And they're probably fun too, but I was watching his flying leaps) He even takes the time to get close to Wonder Girl's rear!
And finally, as he thinks his chips are down, his last thoughts are going to be of Bruce... Awwwww! (Please note he also cuddles Raven a lot closer in his last seconds, the man has taste, and the spider looks like it's about to find out what flavour!)
Yeah Dick, you go and arouse Wallace... Honestly, subtext has just pole-vaulted over the text and into the face of the reader shouting "I'm the slashy subtext la-la-la!" at the top of it's little lungs
Luckily Raven saves Dick and the others, and all ends, not happily, as Blood escapes and makes the Titans look bad in the process, but at least with the still near-naked Robin rejoining his friends....
