Catwoman (2002-2008) #32
"And I thought I’d lost you."
I… don’t have much to add. I just… comics that make me remember how much I used to love Bruce kind of make me want to clutch my heart and roll over into a nice, quiet heart attack, because omg what emotion this evokes
And thus, Helena was created.
I love that scene so much, it’s emotional and sweet and the way Bruce actually opens up to Selina… *sigh* One of their most beautiful moments together. And it doesn’t end with them going separate ways or being depressed; Selina’s happy, Bruce’s happy and thankful, and both are very, very much in love - and consummate that love.
Come to think of it… This could be how it all went down on Earth-2… ;-)
One of my favourite issues from Catwoman vol. 2.
Sigh. I miss Catwoman’s book being THIS good. :(
<Insert theories on Helena Kyle’s real daddy in the mainstream universe here>
FAMILY | The one thing that matters most in the House of Wayne.
Back when Catman was a clean-shaven brown-haired, brown-eyed dude and not the hunk that appeared in Secret Six. :P
Batman/Superman #11 | Worlds' Finest Ladies on the cover. :3
Copy Bat by NewEnglandSketcher
Aaaactually… BatCat did that upside down kiss wayyy before the Spider-Man movie. And it was Catwoman hanging upside down!
Well….they don’t call him ‘the Joker’ for nothing. ;)
EARTH-2 BATFAMILY | Things to look forward to in Batman/Superman #8.
If you could make an animated feature for Helena Wayne's origins like they're doing for Damian, how would you do it?
I would do it entirely from scratch and base it off of her pre-Crisis origin instead of her New 52 one. One thing I would do differently is further develop Helena growing up alongside her parents and depict her going to law school.
I would especially focus on her relationship with her mother, Selina Kyle, since relationships between mothers and daughters are rarely depicted positively on most mediums. I also would just like to see more interaction between Selina and her daughter.
How do you feel about Selina in Batman #28 where she is the new Kingpin of Crime?
I haven’t actually read the issue, but from what I’ve seen of the scans, I’m more worried about how DC is going to ruin the Bruce and Selina relationship to get her to that point.
In the scans that I saw, she read an awful lot like Silver Age Selina (you know, the one that wore green), which had me wondering if they’re thinking of bringing her back to an exclusively villain status. If they go that route, I told myself I’ll officially drop the remainder of my DC pull list until the publisher gets its shit together. (My pull list at the moment consists of only three New 52 titles. THREE).
Under different circumstances, I think the idea of Selina being a crime boss in itself could be interesting and it wouldn’t be too out of character for her if done right. But if she becomes a crime boss as a consequence of Bruce betraying her in some capacity, I will not be pleased with that.
REGRETS | When you wish to be a part of something you can’t be a part of.
HAPPY FAMILY | I wish Earth-2 was a much better place than it is right now. :(
