Perfect Moment: Catwoman #70

I haven't read Catwoman since the 90's, when she had the purple costume and a rack that made Peej's look modest, but when the following page was posted to the old SD, this became my third favorite comic page ever (second favorite Batman page). I forget who scanned this, but my thanks to them for it.



I've kind of kept an eye out to see if this was posted earlier, but never saw it. If, however, I missed it and am double-posting, I apologize.

I much prefer to think she isn't.

One of the best things of the Batfamily is that they are a real family despite the fact that they are not blood-related.

I love that Bruce cares so much for kids that are not really his own, that he truly considers them his sons. Saying that he is so concerned for Helena because she is his biological daughter cheapens that part of his character.

I completely fail to see how Bruce being all tender with his own kid somehow cheapens his character. What? He can only bond with boychildren with whom he shares the bonds of personal trauma?

Besides, at this point, I think we're supposed to believe Selena's already told him the father is Red Herring Slam Jr.

It's not his being tender with his own kid that cheapens the character. It's the fans' claim that, because Bruce is being tender with the kid, it must mean that the kid is his. The implication is that he couldn't possibly be tender with a kid that is not blood-related to him.

He is Batman. Whatever Selina told him, if the kid is his, he knows it.

I can see that angle. Though most of us thought Helena was his from the multiple, anvilicious hints that were dropped on us, before they trotted out The Reveal Which No One Buys.

Damn right!
