First off, let me say for starters: You are a fascinating individual. Never before have I seen a new person make claims I can debate with so clearly.
Now, moving on:
It was a joke. He is in a sort of a triangle nowadays. Bitches indeed be flocking to him.

First of all, as a fellow superhero, Blossom can indeed relate to him in terms of the burden of the role he's taken up and the two of them can always depend on each other for support. Not only that, but she's witnessed both the event that caused Dexter's grief as well as his grieving process.
Blossom has also offered herself as a confident for him to turn to and could provide the kind of support he needs in order to finally let go of Deedee's death and all the guilt associated with it.
I am aware of this, and regard it with much truth even during my attempts to say she STILL shouldn't be in a relationship with him. However, your rebuttal about her being able to help him through the healing process is one I actually... embarrassingly... did not consider.
The_Black_Dragon wrote:Olga on the other hand, has experienced a similar event and knows very well what Dexter could be going through, both in terms of losing Deedee, but also Mandark's own demise. These two can relate to one another in that field.
This is sort of what I've been inkling toward. To sway the people who view this comic to shift their view of Blossom to Olga. Blossom has only seen what has happened to Dexter Second-hand, but Olga... as well as Mandark himself all suffered directly, losing a great friend and a possible lover respectively.
The main problem here, for ME anyway, is that Blossom isn't native to Dexter's Lab... and that entire 'Mandark' conflict revolves around it. This does not bar her from the relationship, I know. But it makes Olga seem a mite more qualified.
The_Black_Dragon wrote:But my problem here is that I don't really know how Olga feels towards all this. Is she angry that Mandark is dead? Does some part of her secretly hate Dexter (since she hasn't made any ill will towards him obvious)? What does she think of the entire thing in and of itself?
Well, Bleedman, or at least the writer of the story at the time Made Mandark seem very... enigmatic.
I found it fascinating how he wasn't completely demonized during Saga 1. He was a villain, sure- that much is unquestionable. But he accidentally KILLED Deedee, an action probably more painful to Mandark than to Dexter, if that is even possible.
This comic, when I was first reading it, was astounding to me; how the concept of losing a sibling may be dwarfed by losing a LOVER! Who in turn is the same person by 2 different perspectives.
On Olga's side, she saw what happened to Mandark, she new he Killed Deedee, after all- Deedee was her closest friend. Mandark went insane for the longest time, being put into an asylum before eventually being broken out by Black Eden.
At this point we have 2 possibilities:
1: Olga didn't know that Mandark broke out of the Asylum, but found him dead later anyway. Noticing the destruction both sides have caused, she is 50/50 on holding a grudge.
2: Olga DID know that Mandark broke out of the Asylum... and eventually found him dead trying to exact his 'revenge' upon Dexter. At this, she is not likely to hold a grudge.
She knew first hand Mandark was sick, depraved... and then was released from the Mental Hospital. If she went to his ruins, she would of known that he caused more pain, maybe even more death.
I find it unlikely that she harbors any resentment for Dexter... Mandark, Dexter AND Olga all lost a precious person that day.
At least, that's how I see it.
