"She knows that Bruce Wayne is a mask. She knows being this playboy character is a façade. Batman is The Bat, and he knows that Selina Kyle is a mask — the Cat is who she is. And they’re not ashamed of that. They’re not the people that they were born to be. They’re the people that they chose to be. They’re the only two people that see each other as they truly are. That’s the core of their romance. Your soulmate is the person that sees everything that everyone judges you on and loves you still." -- Tom King

It's not often that a Batman-Catwoman sex scene is portrayed as a thought-out romantic gesture, rather than a perverse opposites-attract uncontrollable lust.

Got to admit that i didn't really ship Batman/Catwoman until this scene, either.

a little uncontrollable here. but definitely not lust. these are definitely two people drawn to the thing inside each other only they can see. Possibly two lost children desperate for love and comfort... I admit... I almost cried.

The sex feels like a deliberate decision on their part here, at the very least. A far cry from the standard depiction of them starting off yelling and grabbing at each other violently, and then Catwoman purrs and Batman goes, "Dammit, Selina, I--You--We cant--Grrrr" *unbuckles utility belt*

sorry that made me giggle. but now. yeah I agree. this was definitely more emotional than "lusty busty month of may" shenanigans. But there is still a sense of... quiet, emotional desperation, not physical... if that makes sense...

Y'know, I wasn't really sure of the difference between this scene and the one from New 52 Catwoman until this thread. Now I sort of see it. Thanks!

(Gotta take points off for exposed boning, though. One drone and bam! Bat-junk on the Internet. Heh.)

Batman is convinced she didn't, and he's usually right about stuff like that. And the way Selina is being evasive about it also makes me think she is letting people THINK she is a murderer (kinda how people were lead to believe batman "killed" Harvey. even if batman doesn't kill, the threat of it is enough)

So, Selina was framed for killing 237 people? Even in a Batman story, how does that work?

Yeah, I really love the idea of a loser gimmick villain who just revels in his gimmick and doesn't worry about how much of a loser he is.

Theory! I wonder if Bruce and Selina calling each other 'Cat' and 'Bat' is Tom King stealth-punning the term 'pet names'.

Given how this is the writer who hid a secret happy ending to Grayson: Future's End, and gave the BatKids a BatKids-only code, I wouldn't put past him to pull this kind of delightfully underhanded wordplay.

I love your theory and I'm subscribing to it.

"Bat!"

"Cat!"

"Penguin!"

*both look next to them in abject horror as Cobblepot lays next to them, smiling*

Batman: "Well, that's it, I'm done here for the night."

The one thing I don't like is seeing how many Bat-villains, however C-, D-, or Z-list, get jobbed over the course of a single issue/night. Especially the ones who used to be able to warrant at least an issue's story. :)
