Among the most prolific of those populating the sidelines of heroic adventures are the fair maiden, the love interest that can never aspire to more because the hero's cause is greater than his feelings for her. Two such lassess are the focus today, Tracey and Allison Corelli.
So as is often the case, she felt maybe a different hair colour might attract her potential suitor. And it seems on this particular occasion, when Troy learns that the world hates his insect identity (through the secret machinations of an imprisoned enemy), he almost gives pause to consider taking Allison's hand in marriage. Ah but how would she view the Fly? Would she also feel the same as the rest of the world or would she accept him as either man?
Alas, she too fell prey to the attitude directed at our hero, and she didn't just stop hurling hurtful words but a flying stone to break his bones (not a chance of happening).
In her last appearence, a mysterious villain known only as the Blockbuster became affair of the Fly's attachment to the judge and his daughter, and attempted attacking them both. By this time she had dyed her roots back and had long since made ammends with the Fly. After a timely save, he flew off and never more graced the presences of his erst-while romance. He would leap into the arms of Kimberly Brand, aka Fly-Girl .
Ted makes the right call, revealed to Tracey both his love for her and his means of carrying on the legacy left behind by the Blue Beetle. This causes her to draw closer to him and become his most valuable ally (even more so than Bug, whom we last week considered in further detail)!
