one batman to rule them all

a short list of uncommon settings i want to run/play a tabletop rpg session in
  • sci-fi, but like, spoof. galaxy quest meets hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy meets the most camp monsters from 1970s doctor who. there are multiple star trek references
  • faction paradox-style intersection of black magic, post-apo, period drama and space opera. actually i’m already writing this one so
  • gravity falls. (that’s written too)
  • night vale. roll to seduce a scientist. eat wheat to transform into a powerful eldritch being and fight a deer. summon a puppy
  • noir/neo noir detective story. on a serious note or a parody.
  • something 100% surreal. what are genres. what are rules. i mean there are rules to combat/magic etc but the world looks like one of these cartoons in the intro credits to a monty python film and it goes borrowing from wildly unrelated franchises like frickin lego batman movie
  • survival horror with all the horror tropes. all of them
The girls and glitter bombs

So in a few headcannons I mention glitter bombs, here’s sort of the story behind it. Thanks again to @atomicnightbear for the help with ideas over dinner. Also she’s my awesome roommate who likes to talk about the batgirls with me which is often.


- So the glitter bombs started off with Stephanie. She needed a way to express her anger when the boys are being stupid without actually hitting them. Now she just throws glitter bombs at them.

- Cass joined in on this idea. She prefers to use yellow glitter while Stephanie’s was purple.

- Barbara has a few she keeps too just in case. Most of hers are directed at Dick and Bruce though. There was a a few months where Dick couldn’t go a week without getting hit by one.

- Harper took claims on the blue glitter. She doesn’t use them as often but it’s still nice to have to let anger at.

- One of the boys claiming they are better then you, bomb covered in glitter. Just imagine trying to patrol when your costume as glitter on it. Yeah not very sneaky. The black surface of the costumes just lets the glitter reflect better.

- Tim is often the target of most of Stephanie’s. Jason usually gets hit by Cass’s when he kills someone.

-Damian gets hit by everyone’s. He wins for most about of glitter bombs. Once he was hit by all of them at once.

-Duke gets hit the less amount because he ain’t going to piss off the girls. Glitter takes forever to get out.

- It is well known now that if someone is covered in glitter they it means they have pissed off one of the girls.Usually you can tell which one by the color. Alfred makes the person cover in glitter clean up any that gets on his rugs.

- Katie Kane totally joins it as well. Her’s are red. She prefers to use them when everyone is getting all glumly.

- Selina totally joined in. It all started when Bruce was ignoring her for awhile. She took one of Cass’s and just threw it straight for his face. He was not impress. She couldn’t stop laughing.

- One time when fighting Harley and Ivy Stephanie accidentally threw a glitter bomb instead of smoke pellets. Harley was in love with it and figured out how to make some at home. Ivy was not impressed.

- Glitter bombs are suppose to be banned from the batcave. Yeah they ignore that rule.

another reason i think cass would make a good batman: batman’s relationship to the rogues gallery is so, so important and pretty fundamental to the character. not just in the sense that most of them are obsessed with batman or that they want to kill him all the time but also in the sense that batman is fundamentally compassionate. his no killing rule exists not only to stop himself from spiraling down a dark, self-destructive path but also because one of his core values is that if you can try and help someone you should and that people deserve second chances. sound familiar? cass was brought up to be a weapon, a killer and yet she made herself a hero: that second chance was arguably the most important thing that happened to her. even as batgirl/black bat/orphan she was trying to rehabilitate villains and ex-villains. cass is so perfect for batman.

Hidden Rooms

So I’ve come up with two new story arch ideas and have thoughts on where to lead them next. Both are Jughead x Reader one’s but I don’t know which one you guys will like better. This is the more lighthearted one. Any feedback would be appreciated and I see this story going about 5 parts if it’s read enough. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy it.

She was a mystery to me. I was trying to figure her out. Y/N Y/L/N had arrived to Riverdale only a few weeks before Jason Blossoms murder, and from what I could tell so far - she made an effort to stay hidden from almost everyone at the school. I didn’t see her at the mandatory “spirit” inclined pep rallies, lunch, or any sports event and she made a very clear attempt to be avoided in the hallways. Something I could relate to in that manner.

Batman headcanon that one time Impulse was speeding around being his usual self and one annoyed concerned citizen asked him where his parents were. Now Bart is from the future so he doesn’t really have an answer, so he goes with the next best response which is to point over at Superboy and Robin who are bickering over something. And so Tim and Conner became the mom and dad of Young Justice.

Though he denies it, Conner is the mom, fun and kooky and willing to play with the others but also more emotionally available and sweet. Tim is the dad, stern and likes to play by the rules, but a good teacher and no one can resist his disappointed face (honed, of course, by the ultimate dad, Batman). Bart thinks it’s funny and continues to refer to them as Mom and Dad to the utter confusion of everyone. But to the reluctant parents’ chagrin, the nickname spreads.

Soon all of Young Justice is calling them Mom and Dad. Anyone who gets in trouble is told to ‘go see your Father’ and make the walk of shame over to Robin with their head hung. The girls teasingly ask Kon how he’s able to balance being a mother and a hero which Conner used to get furious over but he’s now resigned to his fate. Tim has lost count of the times someone has handed him a phone with a pleading look, he’ll pinch between his eyes but take the call and introduce himself as so and so’s father. The tradition continues into the Teen Titans and by this point, Tim and Kon are used to and just routinely answer to Mom and Dad while Starfire, Cyborg and Gar shrug their shoulders. They get it in a way, Donna and Dick were like their parents in a way.

So it’s not unusual to walk in the kitchen in the morning to see Tim reading the paper or doing work. Kon has 3 boxes of cereal set out and was kind enough to remember to get out enough bowls and spoons for everyone. The Titans are shouting and causing a ruckus, Kon yells at them to stop wasting all the milk. Tim keeps working but announces that he needs to head back to Gotham today so Mom and Auntie Starfire are on their own to watch the children. They kiss their dad goodbye and wave as he teleports back to Gotham. He makes his way to Bruce’s study and wearily sits in the chair beside his mentor who is also nursing a headache over a child or three. They sit in companionable silence as only someone who is the guardian of a bunch of rambunctious and lovable kids can be.

New 52 Pick-Up: Batman and Robin, “Born to Kill”

So here’s some spoilers for what I’m gonna say later on in this blog post: I love this comic so much. As a whole, Batman and Robin is, in my opinion, the best ongoing published during the New 52, AND the best Batman book of the past 6 years. The team of Tomasi and Gleason is a winning combo, and their Superman series in DC Rebirth is my favorite book currently on the market. If you’re not reading it, you need to. I once said that if you enjoy Rebirth Superman, you owe it to yourself to read Batman and Robin, and I stand by that. But the inverse it true too. If you liked Batman and Robin and haven’t been reading Rebirth Superman, get on that.


Series: Batman and Robin

Issues: #1-8

Writer: Peter Tomasi

Artist: Patrick Gleason

What I thought then: I shared this story in the link in the intro, though some of my recollection there was incorrect, so I’m retelling it here:

I started with five books. There were the four I’ve covered the first arcs of already (Justice League, Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, and Demon Knights), and then I knew I was going to get something with Batman. Because I loved Batman, and he was my favorite character. But the problem was, at the beginning of the New 52, DC had SO MANY books with Batman in them. Ignoring the ones starring spin-off characters like Nightwing, Batgirl, and Teen Titans, Batman himself was starring in SIX books: This one, Batman, Detective Comics, Batman: The Dark Knight, Justice League, and Justice League International. I knew that if I didn’t restrain myself, I’d try reading all of them, so aside from Justice League, I made a rule that I was only going to read one Batman-centric book. I kind of knew who Damian Wayne was thanks to the Blackest Night: Batman miniseries, and I figured a book where I was guaranteed to get Batman and Robin was more bang for my buck than a book starring only Batman, so I went for it.

I don’t think it was until issue #5 when I realized that both this book and Green Lantern Corps were written by the same guy, so this book and that one get bonus points for making me care about creators not named “Geoff Johns”. And while it really wouldn’t be until the “Death of the Family” tie-ins that I started to appreciate Patrick Gleason’s art, there are some bits that blew me away here.

Of the five books I started with, this one was the best. I knew it then, and I still know it now.

The story: Batman has a new Robin, his son, Damian Wayne. Raised by assassins, Damian has a lot of talent for fighting crime, but also a lot of rage. Desperate not to fail his son, Batman needs to find a way to connect with Robin so the boy doesn’t go over the edge. This is made harder when NoBody, the son of one of Bruce Wayne’s masters, shows up in Gotham, dedicated to tearing down everything Batman stands for and poaching Robin for his new apprentice.

What I think now: This comic is a gift to the world.

Like Green Lantern, Batman’s continuity didn’t really reboot with the New 52. It got condensed and confusing (we must accept the fact that there is no satisfactory explanation for how Batman could burn through four sidekicks and all his biggest stories in five years and move on with our lives), but most of it was still there. Like Green Lantern, this was because Grant Morrison was telling a years-long story that was coming to an end with his Batman Incorporated material. But it’s also just due to the fact that Batman’s popular, and if you get rid of his 50 satellite characters, you can’t make money giving books to those 50 satellite characters. But the bright side to all of that is that unlike Green Lantern, you don’t need to reboot Batman in order for people to know who he is. Batman is such a huge figure in pop culture that it’s a reasonable expectation that everyone knows his deal. Sure, maybe they don’t know Damian Wayne in particular, but just to be safe, Tomasi drops in information about his background, plus Bruce Wayne’s general origin story. This book is friendly to both old and new readers, catching newbies up without making the old-timers feel like they’re just retreading old ground. It’s a really good balance.

Unsurprisingly, what makes Batman and Robin work is the fact that it’s about Batman and Robin. The father-son relationship is portrayed masterfully here. Right off the bat (pun not intended), we see Bruce and Damian having an interaction a normal father and son would, with the dad trying to impart some details about his personal life and the kid not really caring. It reminds me of more than a few conversations I’ve had with my parents over the years.

Of course, the big draw is that this is not an ordinary father and son. This story is about Damian suppressing his urge to kill, and Batman asking how he can control that, especially in his own flesh and blood. Damian Wayne is not like the previous Robins. He’s not some kid Batman took off the street to give closure, he’s his biological responsibility, and he’s used to playing a game with very different rules. There’s a thing people like to say about Damian in pretty much every discussion I’ve had about him: “He’s a little shit”. And that can either be the reason you love him or hate him. But the thing I like here is that in this first story arc, while you COULD say that, it’s overly-dismissive of the complexities of his character. Damian is a kid struggling to adapt to a world and lifestyle unlike the one he’s grown up in, and that’s a tough situation, both for him and for the people trying to help him into it.

Alfred’s inclusion in this story is nothing short of impeccable. We get to see him playing the role of grandfather to Damian. He’s raised Bruce, and now he’s watching Bruce make mistakes with his own son, and he’s really trying to keep everything together. He gives Bruce parenting advice while also trying to get Damian to understand Bruce’s struggle as a father. Like the story as a whole, Alfred doesn’t take one person’s side. The story doesn’t preach the idea that parents are uptight or that kids are just brats, it acknowledges that family is a tricky thing.

NoBody is also a great villain for this arc. He’s a foil to both Bruce and Damian. He’s the failure Bruce could’ve been if his standards weren’t so high. He’s this chaotic, unleashed being that Damian is on the verge of becoming, and trying very hard not to. And he really stress tests just how much faith Batman and Robin have in each other. He’s also got a nice backstory that gives us a cool look into a lesser-discussed chapter of Batman’s history, and he’s got this really good balance of cool and crazy that a lot of Batman’s villains lack.

It’s just hard to go into better detail about this comic’s quality without spoiling absolutely everything. But I think it sells the pair of Bruce and Damian very well. Traditionally, Robin’s always been the thing that softens Batman’s hard exterior. When Dick and Damian were Batman and Robin, the draw was the reversal of the dynamic, a more fun Batman and a more intense Robin. Now we have a hard Batman and a hard Robin, and it seems like that should work, but it only goes so far. Having this more troubled kid be Bruce’s son forces Batman to dig deep and find some of his own softness, to challenge the way he sees and interacts with the world and the people around him. More than any of his sidekicks before him, Damian Wayne forces Batman to grow as a person. And that’s what this first arc is about, and it’s what Tomasi and Gleason’s entire run on Batman and Robin is about. As you stick through the ongoing story arcs, you’ll see both Bruce and Damian put through the emotional ringer and grow as people, and it’s a goddamned treat.

If you like Batman, you can’t let yourself miss out on this one.

Batfam Week day 4: Hurt/Comfort

Title: Inertia

Rating: PG

Genre: hurt/comfort, fluffy, family story

Characters: Tim Drake and Bruce Wayne

Description: Batfam week prompt 4: Hurt/comfort.Tim stopped tBatman’s downward spiral, but Bruce did not know how the kid found a way into his heart.

Note 1: I am still taking Batfamily week prompts! Send them my way, please.


           The life of billionaire and secret vigilante detective Bruce Wayne could be divided into two segments, as sharp as the dividing line in history. Bruce Wayne in the years A. J., After Jason. In the early years After Jason, that meant quickly escalating violence. Grief spilled through his fists, painting the Rouge’s Gallery with their blood. He never crossed the line all the way, Batman still never killed, but he came close. By the rules of escalation, it would have happened one day.  As Newton’s first law indicates, a Batman in motion will not be stopped unless acted on by an external source.

           Enter the external source. The moment Tim Drake entered Bruce Wayne’s life, he stopped the inertia of escalating violence. Batman resisted, fought against the restraint of a new side-kick, a new son. Fought against the friction of loving someone else that threatened his way of life. That threatened to make him love and lose again, but Tim held persistence in his bones. At first for Bruce, adjusting to having the kid around was painful as it was hard. He eventually agreed to train the kid but held him at a distance. How Tim Drake slipped through the cracks of his carefully constructed wall was a mystery even the world’s greatest detective could not solve. It happened without him noticing.

           Bruce sunk into his armchair by the fire. It was a rare quiet day with no responsibilities for Bruce Wayne or Batman, at least for the moment. He sat in silence for a while, his coffee forgotten beside him, doing nothing. Nothing at all.

           The shatter of glass had Batman up instantly, all pretense of Bruce Wayne gone as he bounded toward the kitchen. He was ready to fight, ready to tackle the new threat. He was not ready to see Tim, on the floor desperately trying to clean up broken glass and not even noticing the growing number of cuts on his hands that left a trail of red wherever he touched. He looked up, young eyes frantic. “Bruce, I’m sorry. I’ll have it cleaned up in a second.” In three confident strides, Bruce crossed the kitchen to him, ignoring the crunch of glass under his shoes. He kneeled down and took hold of Tim’s hands to stop him. “This will need stitches,” he said, and some glass needed picked out. He scooped the kid up and headed toward the cave. Tim looked up at him, “I can walk, Bruce,” he said quietly, but the man did not respond. He held the child a bit tighter than necessary.

           Bruce sat him down on the table without a word and immediately set about pulling the shards free carefully with tweezers. Tim hissed but made no other sounds of pain. He watched Bruce’s face, his own expression growing more concerned. Bruce looked at him. “It is not bad.”

           “You’re angry.”

           Bruce’s hand hesitated for half a second before he went back to work. “Why do you think that?”

           “You weren’t talking,” Tim replied. “I’m sorry. I was hungry, and I didn’t want to bother you, with Alfred out…” Bruce met the kid’s worried eyes. “I know me being here…I’m trying not to be trouble.” The detective was slowly trying to piece together what the kid was saying, but truthfully, when it came to the minds of children—it was Alfred that was the better detective.

           “You’re trying not to be trouble?” he repeated, beginning to clean the cuts now that they were free of glass.

           “Yeah. I know you didn’t ask for me to be here. I’m here to help you so…”

           It was starting to make sense. Bruce slowly began to stitch the worst cut. It was not terrible, so he assumed he could do it without Alfred’s help. “You’re trying not to be trouble, so I don’t change my mind about you.” When Tim did not answer, Bruce knew he had hit on the truth. Bruce stopped his work to rest a hand on the child’s head. “You can bother me. Anytime, Tim.” Both of them fell silent as Bruce finished the stitching and wrapped it. He started to help the kid off the table but hesitated, picking him up again. He carried Tim up to his room, putting him down on the bed. He saw the young mind working. “Rest. I’ll bring you something to eat.” He walked to the door and stopped. “I’m glad you came to us, Tim.” He left the kid without another word.

The biggest downfall for any of Batman's foes fighting against any of Batman's protégés is that they automatically think they're fighting against a inferior version of Batman. Reality strikes when they realize each one plays by their own rules and aren't so predictable (or alone). Batman did take them all in so they wouldn't end up just like him. When are people going to get the memo?

Bruce is such a blessed contradiction, like any parent, he proud when his children grow and develop into their own person but at the same time deeply annoyed that they don’t follow things exactly his way.

Bruce himself sometimes underestimates his partners’ skills just because they’re different from his way of thinking (a touch of arrogance in that ‘if I didn’t think of it, it’s not the proper way’). I think the fact that Batman is occasionally dismissive of his partners and the fact that despite being labeled ‘partners’ he is clearly the dominating force in the relationship (like 80% to 20% input) makes it easy for villains to sort of write off the sidekick. It’s only when they see them alone do they realize that they’ve not only learned extensively from Batman but grew beyond him as well. Bruce does understand this but you know how white middle aged men dads can be sometimes. Over and underestimating you in a single breath which in turn affects how others view you. It’s an advantage in a lot of ways, insulting even more until at the kid is able to build their own rep

The thing I love the most about Arkham Knight is how much insight the game gives into Bruce’s psyche and how the gameplay really gives you the opportunity to “Be the Batman” because of this. It’s not the Batmobile or the gadgets or the missions that give you this opportunity, but Bruce’s own vulnerability. 

It’s easy to button mash to fight thugs all night long and strategically fight your way through boss battles. I mean, you’re playing as Batman. Tough, resilient, resourceful Batman. There’s nothing unusual about any of that. You don’t even think twice about doing any of it. What makes Arkham Knight so amazing, and what makes Scarecrow being the main antagonist such a perfect decision, is how you get to see Bruce’s worst fears come to life. His guilt, his demons, his regrets. It makes every mission more intriguing, every decision more dire, every word spoken by Joker or Scarecrow much more meaningful, and you begin to feel more than you usually would while playing. You anticipate the outcomes more, you begin to fear what’s in store for him more – you can almost feel Bruce’s dread.

Scenes like Barbara getting shot by the Joker or Jason being tortured, you’re forced to watch, to stand by and do nothing. You feel completely helpless, and that’s exactly how Bruce felt. When he found out about Joker paralyzing Barbara, when he watched the video of Joker “killing” Jason, Batman felt helpless. You immediately want to help them, expect Batman to save the day, but you’re forced to look on, unable to do anything. Much like Bruce. 

There are scenes where you have to do questionable things – kill, even – and break Batman’s one rule, go against Bruce’s morality. Scenes where you have to indulge in his worst fear, finally giving into all his rage and becoming no better than those he aims to stop, and when you play them, you can’t help but feel guilty. You don’t want to kill, for Batman’s sake. For the sake of all that he means, all that this means to him, all of his struggles, you feel reluctant. It’s through this reluctance that you, as a player, are pretty much an extension of Batman himself. 

I don’t know about any of you, but I honestly think this makes Arkham Knight such an incredible conclusion to the trilogy.

You ever wonder why recent DC comics lack good character growth for your fav?

Basically, DC writers, editors, creative teams and bosses are all just a bunch of Batman fanboys. So good luck if your favorite character is anyone else, and especially if your fave is someone who might actually be a threat to Batman’s “COOL” stature, such as Red Hood and Deathstroke. I can guarantee they will have their asses handed to them by all the other characters (especially other batman characters) in a story whenever they are not being written by their own comic book writer. 

Don’t believe me? Think about this; why else does Batman in BvS now kill people? Isn’t that like his golden rule that he would never break, no matter if a serial killer paralyzed his friend and killed another? Isn’t that what made Batman considered a HERO because he never crossed the line into anti-hero? Isn’t that the one thing that made Jason such a cool character among the Batfamily but also made him the outcast among them? Isn’t that also why he is rapidly growing in popularity, because fans really like that idea? Precisely. The Batman fanboys that run DC can’t have their fave’s coolness be threatened by any other character. Ever. And no, this isn’t a conspiracy theory. It was just a theory, until BvS came out and confirmed everything I suspected. If that’s still not enough proof, check out CW’s Arrow. A show that really should just be called “Batman” because every character in it is just a carbon copy of the batfamily. So if you are actually a fan of Green Arrow, Speedy, Red Arrow, Felicity Smoke, and Black Canary, and their entire line of villain’s, then you are out of luck.

 Sorry Slade. Sorry Jason. Sorry every other character in DC, and fans of those character’s that want their fav to have good character development. DC can’t take that risk.

Wacky head cannon : take two

The Juvenile Wing at Arkham is one of the worst wings to work on. It’s beaten only by High Security mainly because they have the Joker.

That was until Jason Todd was incarcerated there.
Overnight nurses on juvie found if they so much as mentioned the Red Hood being downstairs the kids, went to bed, ate their food and generally behaved themselves.

Eventually, news of this reached Jason. The next day he was escorted into the wing where he pinned a list of rules on the notice board. Turning he informed the shell shocked teenagers that they were to follow the rules or he would be ‘very disappointed’ in them.
Whilst leaving he pondered when exactly he’d turned into Alfred?

From then on the Juvenile Wing went from one of the worst to one of the best wings to work on and shifts there were a blessed relief.

All of the teenage delinquents got A’s in English that term. The nurses bragged about this in the staff room. When asked what book the paper was on they said it was ‘Pride and Prejudice’
The nurses from high security openly wept.

Batman was informed about the progress the kids were making. He never made the connection.

Batman and Catwoman’s Top 10 Flirtiest Moments

If there’s one thing Batman and Catwoman are known for its getting their flirt on. And why not, they’ve been doing it since the beginning. Astonishingly this is something that endured the last seven decades and in their 75 years together their flirting has ranged from innocent and playful to downright sexual (cover those eyes Robin!). It’s hard to pin down the range of their romantic liaisons into a single post but here are some of their most distinguished dalliances for your viewing pleasure.

10. Batman: The Brave and the Bold “The Mask of Matches Malone” 

Somehow an attempt to intercept Catwoman’s thieving turned into Batman and Catwoman play fighting and rolling around on top of each other. The thing that’s so great about this scene is that the intensity of Batman and Catwoman’s chemistry was so strong Batman felt guilty about it, even though he wasn’t actually doing anything wrong.

9. Batman (v1) #1

But he was tempted. Even though Catwoman spent most of this issue dressed as an elderly woman Batman was still attracted to her enough to briefly consider her offer (and threaten to spank her) and then lets her run away or at least Robin seemed to think so. Batman and Catwoman would go on to have many games of cat and mouse (or cat and bat) but nothing beats the original.

8. Catwoman (v3) #11

What’s funny about this scene is that Bruce was trying to find common ground with Slam Bradley (who was secretly in love with Selina at the time) while him and Selina are simultaneously hanging all over each other. Body language is flirting!

7. Batman (TV Series) “The Bat’s Kow Tow”

Somehow this went from Catwoman trying to kill Batman to them agreeing to go on a date. This is was pretty raunchy for 1960s television, and judging by the sheer amount of heat in this scene it’s easy to see why the rules of the Comic Book Code Authority forced Catwoman out of comics at the time.

6. JLA: Crisis of Conscience

Although Catwoman is usually the one taking the lead the flirting is always so much better when Batman reciprocates. But it seems like every time he starts to get into it they end up getting interrupted. In this case J’onn J’onnz.

5. Worlds’ Finest (v3) #29

Maybe this is insidious because this was more foreplay than flirting. This is exactly the type of batcat courtship I would expect from Paul Levitz: fun, funny, and filled with puns. Supes shows up making it the fourth flirtus interuptus on this list and I think Clark’s utter confusion at the whole affair really goes to show that Batman and Catwoman’s relationship is so uniquely their own, only they can really understand it.

Caveat: Things are about to get hot

4. Batman Returns

3. Batman, Inc. (v1) #1

…Okay so they’re actually talking about something kind of important in this scene but whatever they’re multi-taskers they can make plans, work out, and feel each other up at the same time. Despite the obvious chemistry between Batman and Catwoman that I have spent this entire post demonstrating they are rarely depicted in a way that indicates that they do indeed have sex (other than that Judd Winick monstrosity), which is just nonsense.

Thanks to Grant Morrison we can finally prove that Batman and Catwoman are having all the sex. ALL OF IT!

2. Batman (v1) #392

Holy innuendos, Batman!

Batman dated a lot of women in his Pre-Crisis days both as Bruce Wayne and as Batman, and Doug their relationship got turned on and off more times than a light-switch but they always found their way back to each other.

1. Batman: The Brave and the Bold “Inside the Outsiders!

A.K.A. “Flirterers!”

I think this episode is more known for being one big Batman and Catwoman flirt fest than for whatever was actually going on. I dare you not to giggle every time Batman offers to “rehabilitate” Catwoman in that suggestive, husky tone. Even their “fight” scene was really just more witty banter and play fighting. Even on a campy children’s program Catwoman gets Batman hot under the collar.

i can’t understand the logic used by all the people who support gritty batman as the one true batman to Rule Them All and In The Darkness Bind Them™ when they go and accuse everyone else of “not understanding batman and the character’s true and complex multidimensionality”

like… craig. buddy. gritty is just one dimension. one. count it. half a dimension. where’s the repertoire of characterestics i’m not allowing you to show me
