Personally I hate when the heroes lie to their loved ones about their secret identities.

How many of Spider-Man's loved ones have paid the price (or their own loved ones have paid it) because Peter likes to keep secrets?

If Barry gets around to sleeping with Patti then I think he should tell her. If they never get serious...well then he should let her go and just never tell her.




These days I am of the view that the Secrt Identity component of superhero comics has been too badly eroded, it has been allowed to be undermined by adult thinking writers and editors who miss its point and purpose as a storytelling device and mechanism to allow audience identification. Wonder Woman in particular is a character who has suffered in the last two decades in my view as she has not that human anchor of a secret identity, it is very hard to access her these days because of that and the lack of everyday human relatability...
