| > It IS sick. As I was reading it I was wondering what the revelation was going to be, it took me a couple or so rereads to make sure I hadn't missed something! What went thru Johns head here? Dick is... what, in his late sixties at least? They were raised together as Brother & sister...|
Where was it stated that they were raised as brother and sister? Robin of Earth- Two debuted in 1940 and was already in his early teens by then. Huntress was born in 1955 so by the time she was born Robin wasn't being raised by anyone anymore. He was already an adult and living his own life. To Robin she most likely felt like a little sister but to Helena Dick might not have felt as much of a brother as someone she looked up to and maybe had a crush on from very early on.
It's not like the two of them were shown as a couple. It was just revealed that Huntress was in love with Robin, not that it was something she was going to act upon. The reason she couldn't marry Harry Sims might simply be a case of her not wanting to say yes when she knew she was already mentally decieving him.
As for Robin's age he should be about 30 years older than Huntress and since there were no dates given in the story I think it is safe to assume that "now" on Earth-2 is not 2008. Some years have passed since the Crisis but not 23 years.
Regardless of the whacked out ages of the original guys (I personally don't think this was the original E-2 for various reasons), Dick and Helena were raised in the same household. This is the daughter. This is the almost son. No, not blood relatives, but still creepy.
