As everyone here knows, DC has gotten a shit tonne of criticism for their portrayal of sex in their New 52 line. Not without reason of course since the sex that has been portrayed so far has been nothing short of fanservice.

But then, back in 1990, DC got away with this...

Makes me wonder what the reactions to THIS was back then if people of today complained about the Batman/Catwoman sex scene in Catwoman #1. At best no one was in any position to complain about the scene being non-consensual. :}


Warning for sex and nudity. NSFW.

This isn't as bad as the Catwoman one

Compared to some of the more recent DC universe examples, this is relatively tame.

It's pretty much vanilla sex between two consenting adults who are joking about what to name their children. The sad part is that after this they had to ruin Green Arrow's personality and make it so they never had children and that Red Arrow's kid died. Compared to CRY FOR JUSTICE, this scene is pure bliss.

P.S: What anyone else shocked by Dinah's black hair or was it just me?

Nope. I knew Dinah had black hair because Smith's run on GA referenced it - I think it was something like Ollie trying to pull her wig off, only to find it was real hair that she'd grown out and dyed blonde since.

The blonde wig was part of the BC's (both Dinah and her mom) disguise.

I did a quick double take before I remembered my comic trivia.
