Top Ten WTF Moments In Batman Comics
4. BATMAN GETS IT ON WITH BLACK CANARY AFTER SETTING A BUNCH OF PEOPLE ON FIRE
Fact. Batman likes to have sex with his suit on. Just check out the first issue of the New 52 Catwoman to see how much. He also likes to kill people more than you would think. Well on one special night in All-Star Batman and Robin #7 he had the opportunity to do both when Black Canary, dressed a bit promiscuously, turns up on some docks to take on a horde of criminals.
They prove too much so she hides behind some crates. Luckily, Batman arrives on the scene to save her, brutally pummeling the thugs and setting them all on fire with a bottle of bleach. Not content, he continues to beat the lowlifes while they burn alive, which increasingly turns on Black Canary until she leaps from her hiding place and into his arms. As the men fry to death behind them, the superheroes celebrate by bumping uglies with their masks on. You know, because it’s better that way.
Pretty much everything about Frank Miller’s All-Star Batman and Robin is out of character for Bats. Throughout, he calls Robin retarded, makes the Boy Wonder eat rats, paints himself yellow so he can bully the Green Lantern and constantly refers to himself as “the goddamn Batman.”
But watching him have sex with Canary on a rain-drenched dock as a group of men burn to death in the background just seems wrong. It’s a little reminiscent of the awkward mid-air boot knocking in Watchmen, minus all the charred bodies.
Shagging plays a big part in Batman’s life. (And we won’t even touch on the time Talia al Ghul roofied him into getting her pregnant.) But of all Batman’s sexual exploits, this one might take the cape.
On second thought….
