    No, I'm not talking about kama sutra techniques lol. I'm talking about which female character he's got the best romantic chemistry with.

    In the comics, him and Catwoman are always good together. I've always really liked that relationship.

    After Zatanna went in there and ripped out all the evil.

    Oh.

    One batgirlfriend building another batgirlfriend?

    That's weird.

    Did Zee make Selina a more or less perfect match "intentionally"?

    Catwoman.

    To quote the Penguin in Batman Returns - "Just the pussy I was looking for". When I was a kid I thought he must like cats a lot. ;)

    I refuse to believe the writers didn't intend for the homoerotic undertones.

    I think it was more "narrative laziness" they wanted to imply both had just woken up and were going to start their day but it'd take several panels to show one of them waking up, going down the hall and going into the other's room, or whatever. Easier and quicker to get the idea across by showing them in the same bed (well, actually two single beds as there appears to be two head boards, but then the dividing line between the two beds' mattresses makes it appear the beds are pushed together) talking after just waking up and the... "undertones" implied by the picture probably never really dawned on anyone.

    Besides, it makes perfect sense for a 30-something male millionaire to sleep with a teenage boy in a completely platonic way.

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

    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?

    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.
