Why do you think Bat & Cat have held up as being one of the top 3 or top ten superhero couple of all time

While I’d love to write a whole essay on this, I’ll narrow it down to a few factors: they are one of the most iconic, oldest, and romantic couples in comicdom.

The History

Firstly, Batman and Catwoman have been around since the 1940s (Batman first debuting in 1939, Catwoman a year later), more than enough time to enter the cultural consciousness of the world to become household names today. In countless forms of media and collateral their relationship has been explored (for better or worse) – comics, live action film and television, animation, video games, toys, books, and so on. I don’t think I can actually name another superhero couple who has had this much exposure across media the way Bruce and Selina have (bar Lois Lane and Superman—even my uncultured dad knows them!).

No other romantic interest of Batman’s is more iconic or talked about than his relationship with Catwoman. In fact, his character arc is very much centred by that relationship, right on the same tier as Alfred, Robin, Commissioner Gordon, and the Joker. Selina is essentially Bruce’s equal in every aspect.

The Romance

It’s such a unique yet classic love story, with all the elements and motifs that make it timeless and engaging: Forbidden love. Cultural / class differences. The attraction of opposites. The thrill of the chase. Friendship and camaraderie. The burden of loss and loneliness. Hope for redemption and happiness. 

Sure, on the surface, the brooding hero seeking to tame and reform the bad girl/femme fatale is the stuff of unhealthy tropefest legend. And yet Bruce and Selina manifest many of the classic ingredients for a great romance. They can be madly in love with each other, and it feels like they’re soulmates, it’s unexplainable but it’s so right – it’s destiny. Conversely, they might be “meant to be”, but other forces will drive them apart; lifelong passions may be repressed, yet still burn intensely, and create great tension. Their polarising “careers” and personalities also add nuance and complexity to their relationship, and when they do overcome said differences it makes their union that much more meaningful. Selina can make Bruce relax, laugh, and flirt, while Bruce sees the goodness in Selina. Just like how Jonah Nolan illustrated this dynamic through the ‘yin/yang" concept, Bruce and Selina balance each other out – they are more interesting and better people for being together. The fact they try so hard not to become vulnerable to love and joy makes them so human, and that is fundamentally what makes them so appealing to us.

In short, there’s a BatCat for every season.

THE TOP TEN WORST HAIRCUTS IN SUPERHERO COMICS

By Chris Sims

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Ten Lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week, we’re taking a look back on the many mullets bowl-cuts and other assorted disasters with the ten worst haircuts in superhero comic history!

Show Notes:

  • While Magpie’s triple mohawk is pretty bad, she recently got a Lady Gaga-esque redesign for Beware the Batman that included a very nice platinum bob.
  • Hitman’s petition to restore Superman’s proper haircut can be found in Hitman v.2.

#2. Wonder Woman

The Amazon Princess, who is undeniably well developed with a rich history and is not just another stencil of a generic superhero.  Unlike Batman and Superman, she is willing to make the call the other two are not able to do for the cause of the greater good (Maxwell Lord)

Last year she rocked the comic world with her new costume, which was met with a lot of hate. To be quite honest, this new costume has grown on me and makes a lot of sense for a superhero.

Kid Flash (Teen Titans animated series style) paper cutout

After I made Jericho, I declared that we were done with the Teen Titans, since we’d made most of the major characters (and a few of the minor). Kid Flash was the exception, but seemed like too much of a duplicate since my son already had the Young Justice version on his wall.

But since then, I decided that Jericho didn’t do a good enough job closing off the space in the collage dedicated to the Teen Titans. So I printed off two options to let my son decide who should fill the space. Since he’s my son, he picked both of them, and requested another. The Teen Titans live on!

Even though this one isn’t dramatically different from the YJ version (other than the fact that my skills have dramatically improved since I made that one), it’s not surprising that my son wanted another Wally. He’s easily one of his top ten favourite superheroes, maybe top five. And truth be told, his absence from the Titans has been bothering me too. He’s too significant to not be represented in this style! If Robin and Batgirl can be on the wall twice, so too can KF.

#1. Superman

He is the original superhero.  An immigrant that arrived to America only to become its hero.

He has all the superpower any kid ever wanted: super strength, super speed, flight, super breath (remember the birthday candles), Heat Vision and plethora of other abilities. Thanks to him I ran around as little kid with a towel permanently wrapped around my neck.

He also instills other values such as justice and courage. Plus his costumes always makes me feel like a little kid.
