Grayson #10 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

A question that I still have, ten issues into "Grayson," is what sort of organization Dick thinks Spyral is?

In this issue, Dick expresses shock that Spyral might be selling kryptonite to Lex Luthor (the "representative" of Argus and the Justice League of America) in exchange for upgrades to the Hypnos technology.  (Lex apparently is the one that created Hypnos, and this new version allows Spyral to take control over the bearer's body.)  It makes total sense to me for Spyral to make that deal.  After all, the entire reason that Batman embedded Dick into Spyral is that they were trying to ferret out the secret identities of superheroes.  I mean, he spent the first few issues of this series tracking down organs that allowed Mister Minos to reconstruct Paragon.  Can he be that surprised that Spyral would sell kryptonite to Lex?  Sure, it's a little unclear if Helena is continuing Minos' mission to expose superheroes, but it doesn't mean that Spyral is suddenly not the organization that had that goal in the first place.  Is Dick just pretending to be that naive to throw off everyone?  Or, does he really think that Spyral is some sort of force for goodness in the world?

I feel like we probably need an answer to these question sooner rather than later.
