For @princeasimdiya12

I choosed superheros instead of manga heros, cause I though in the 60/70s mangas wasn’t a big deal in america. First I wanted Stan as Wolverine, but the character needs to wait to the 80s to get a real story… so I choosed Batman. Mighty and rich, Stan could like him :D
(And there was a batman manga back in the 80s! Japan liked batman too!)
Superman would fit to Batman, but he is kind of boring… so it’s Dr. Strange for Ford :D Looks a little bit like a magical girl, but cosplay (for me) is “having fun in costume“, it hasn’t to look perfect.

‘nuff said ;D

Batman Incorporated: The best BatCat story?

There are many stories that involve Batman and Catwoman. Some are phenomenal, others are disappointing. When we think of the best BatCat stories, one immediately thinks back to Hush, or maybe something from the Bronze Age like “A Night on the Town’ and I would include Injustice as well (especially Year 1).

However, there is one story that always makes me think, “Wow, that might be the best portrayal of the Batman and Catwoman relationship”. The story is from Batman: Incorporated, issues # 1 and 2 (November 2010). First off, this story does not have the greatest plot, it has some decent dialogue and the art work is pretty good in places. But I believe it captured the BatCat relationship perfectly.

The story begins with Batman enlisting Catwoman’s help to break into a high security vault in Japan which is something she is only too happy to do:

After successfully retrieving the special diamond from the vault, Bruce and Selina continue with the primary mission of recruiting Mr. Unknown to Batman Incorporated. At this stage in their relationship, there are no secret identities and the attraction is still burning:

Let’s be honest - we all know exactly what they did before going to work.
