Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

It's not that often that you get that combination along with him remaining single. IRL there'd at least be every kind of rumor about his sex life in the tabloids all the time. In real, real life just about anyone in his situation is married, often has been more than once, and women are fucking him on the side anyway.

Bruce Wayne is as plausible as Clark Kent.

On the subject of random sigs around here - I give a damn about Action #2. Enjoyed the hell out of it and thought it was pretty special.

Catwoman #2 is the very first time where I can see Bruce Wayne acts like the super-playboy that he's supposed to be

Catwoman (after Bruce's avance): "Wow. That is some look. I swear to god, it's loke musk. A hundred thoughts run through me and various parts of my anatomy."

In the past, it seemed that the only reason of fame of Bruce as playboy is the fact that he's the richest bachelor in Gotham...
The Man of Steel series was pretty good in that regard - Lex and Luthor have launch and he's the complete asshole playboy (who if I remember correctly misleadings Lex into thinking that bruises on his face are due to some kinky sex game he was playing the night before).

There probably is but the comic book stories simply choose not to focus on it.

I don't know. Look at George Clooney. I think he MIGHT have been married once, when really young, but now he's about fifty and been single nearly all (if not all) his life. He's pretty much the real life Bruce Wayne (albeit a shitty movie one).

I've got to say that it would be hard to find "reviews" of comics any more brain-dead and pointless than what they do at Comic Book Resources. I find modern comics sometimes narratively confusing (I admit it!) but the people at CBR seem to be reading-challenged. I didn't quite realize before just how smart the AICN @$$holes are by contrast.

This Bruce Wayne is probably in his late 20s/early 30s. He currently has a young boy living with him, and over the last decade has adopted other teens, with them moving on when they hit 18. Then he gets another.

People will be talking about his sex life, but it won't involve a woman.

Well, that's always been kind of a traditional part of the whole Wayne/Grayson thing. Paging Doctor Wertham.

I don't know. Usually gay celebrities that aren't out of the closet don't lead a playboy life like Bruce... I believe...

Any exception?

I remains still bit confused of why some people are annoyed about some of the more sexier stuff in Catwoman.
Reading some of the comments from the net makes it look like some sort of porn..that is really not true.
So we see her making out with Batman and wearing a bra(shocking, huh?).
They weren't making out, they were FUCKING.

I am honestly thinking that has something to do of the attitude of "violence is OK, sex is bad" in at least some parts of US media culture.
And since the comic is rated Teen+, so I doubt its even meant to be read by small children, right?
I personally like that Catwoman is sexy and sassy. They have made her seem strong and smart also..so I do not have any complains.
I don't think it's the depiction of Catwoman as sexy and sassy is the problem. I think it was the depiction of Catwoman as basically just tits and ass. How many pages in before we see her face?

When I think of Catwoman, I think T&A. Must have been Julie Newmar.

Between the two issues I actually like the Catwoman book and find her to be a rather interesting character. Sure the books overplay her sexuality but isn't that what Catwoman's always pretty much been about? Hasn't she pretty much ALWAYS just oozed sex?
