Yeesh, Rob and Laura Petrie weren't allowed to sleep that close together in the 60s! Clearly, Robin is Bats' one true soulmate.

Re: Batman's greatest lover?

Kori learnt English from kissing Dick (Wow. Just wow.), so you'd think that when she was gleaming off the lad the idiots guide to earth living, that she would have noticed that he likes blokes? Though he slept with Barbara, after the Killing Joke, the night before he was supposed to marry Kori...

Is Talia still hooking up with Jason Todd?

Re: Batman's greatest lover?

The popular response is going to be Selina, and for very good reasons. For me though it's always been Talia because of the "forbidden love" type aspect of their relationship dynamic. The both are extremely attracted to each other, Talia loves Bruce, Bruce probably loves her to some degree, but can't give in to his feelings because he doesn't support her father's views or actions and she has always been too loyal to Ra's.

Also a secondary choice for me would be Zee. I've always liked the idea of Bruce and Zatanna together.

@Guy...Talia and Jason only did it that one time. Don't think they've had any contact with each other since...and knowing DC editorial, that's probably not even canon now lol.

Re: Batman's greatest lover?

I never had any feel for Julie Madison (Bruce's Golden Age girlfriend) as a character, until Matt Wagner used her in his Bad Moon Rising series. I found her very effective as a character there, and it was heartbreaking when she left him.

I'm also quite fond of Andrea Beaumont from Mask of the Phantasm.

That was a man and a woman, what could two guys possibly do with each other in the same bed but sleep? Sheesh....

Anyway, he and Catwoman make a good couple, but I kind of like seeing him with Wonder Woman. To be honest though, I think he works well with pretty much every lady he's been paired with. Talia... Vicki Vale... Zatanna... Lois Lane... You name 'em. Has he been with Barbara Gordon? I think that's the only one I can't see him with.

Re: Batman's greatest lover?

I'm more concerned about the other three.

There's nothing wrong with being gay, but apart form the black list and McCarthy, closeted homosexuals hiding their true nature in the 50s is hilarious, and really... In their thoughts, the women who Flash, the Atom and Jordan loved with their heart of hearts had to be further refernced with both thier christain and surnames?

With that creep Jordan, I suppose you could argue that he's banging 4 girls named Carol at any one time, but the other two? That's a little too formal to talk about someone they're getting jiggy with. I smell beards! Jordan used to sell toys door to door. If that isn't a trojan horse of a job I have never seen one, but he's going from house to house, from street to street looking for women who like to make babies during school hours.

How much action must that job have gotten him?

Most house wives in the 50s drank till midday and then tried to sober up before school let out.

Fish in a barrel.

Imagine telling your best friend that you knocked up his (adult) daughter.

Barbara Gordon is out of bounds until Jim Gordon is dead.

Re: Batman's greatest lover?

Didn't "Batman: The Animated Series" and "Batman Beyond" imply that a relationship between Barbara and Bruce occurred at some point?

All Star Batman and Robin of course showed Bruce and Dinah have sex in costume IIRC. Way before the hubbub regarding Bruce and Selina in "Catwoman #1" happened.

They dated in the 80s. Alan Davis was the regular artist.

Interesting. I didn't actually know that. I thought that was just some thing Miller had tossed in there lol.
