Are you an immortal crime lord in need of a caring and reasonably priced childcare provider? Has your son or daughter's attempted patricide put a slump in your relationship? Want some relief? Well, look no further, because now there's Rent-a-Bane.

Here at Rent-A-Bane, we respect same sex relationships.

We know what your child needs.

We help maintain healthy diets!

Of course, nap time is a must.

We'll risk anything to do the job right! Stabbings? No problem!

Torture and mutilation? Sure thing!

We're just that dedicated.

So entrust your kids to us today.

Our commitment to your little ones is matched only by our love of vengeance and draining spinal fluid.

All of the above scans (save the last one which I believe is from #9) are from various issues collected in Secret Six: Unhinged. I can't wait until Depths comes out in April! I've already got it pre-ordered and I'm ridiculously excited about it.

Here's another favorite scene of mine from #10. Bane wakes up from a nightmare.

The next day...

Mmm... Floyd eyecandy.

Fanartist can be found here. I think I might do a Ragdoll greatest hits next time.

One of the stranger yet interesting bits of Secret Six. :)

Bane and Scandal are BFFs for life!

Seriously, they have one of the most fucked-up and sweetest relationships in comics.

The strange part about it is that it feel very genuine and delicate and true. Nothing is forced or contrived for a plot.

Considering her biological father is a genocidal maniac... I'd go with the crazy muscled giant too.

Well, her initial response was about as WTF as you'd expect. It took her a while to come around. (Though still less time than you'd think just by looking at Scandal's history, from which I'd have given a rough estimate of never, give or take a couple weeks).

Well, yeah, but he's not real obvious or overwhelming about it right out of the gate either, so a teensy WTF is exactly as much as you'd expect.

Is the hostage in the ice cream truck that Tarantula chick from Nightwing? If it is, what's she doing there and please tell me they eff'ed her up real good before they let her go?

Yes, it is, and I take it you haven't read the story?

She has a card that they want, and you might like how things go for her.

Truthfully, it was a pretty honorable - even, dare I say, almost heroic - death. Which means that personally, I'm more conflicted by it than pleased. On the one hand, in a genre where important, awesome women with history and team headlines get abused or crippled or killed in tears or driven mad with power on a regular basis, seeing a character who is not important or awesome - who is, in fact, a murdering rapist and the refined, one-woman symbol of an utterly heinous storyarc - get a dignified, respectful, powerful ending is maddening.

On the other hand... this is a genre where women get abused or crippled or killed in tears or driven mad with power on a regular basis, and I can't say it could possibly have ever sat well with me to send off Tarantula in a vile or abusive way either, because no matter how much she individually might deserve it, you can't separate that from the wider trend, or how disgusting that is as a genre-wide phenomenon. So Gail's choice to deliberately buck that trend, even, yes, with this character of all characters, is also a profound relief.

So, yeah, I wouldn't call it an uncomplicated sop for Tarantula haters, at any rate. It's far too nice to her for any kind of straightforward schadenfreude, if that's what you're after.

Awwww. The first image is so cute.

You should also put up the ones where Bane interrogates Scandal's date. He's such a dad.

But you left out the hilarious "Father from hell pre date interview" Bane gave to one of Scandal's ladyfolk dates.

I think I'm in love with Bane!

I *heart* Scandal/Bane's relationship. It's like a contradiction of the violence that each of them is capable of and yet they are so sweet and caring towards one another.

Also, Bane needs to be naked more often. A LOT more often.

When I first started reading S6, the last thing I expected was that I'd love the hell out of Bane, but he's just great. Shame he's been such a dick lately.

"Yes Hello... I'd like to Rent A Bane for my daughter Talia. She keeps trying to 'get it on' with my arch-nemesis. They already popped out one demon-child and I'd like to prevent any more."

Oh, if only...

They did a whole THING with potential romance between Talia and Bane, with Bane learning several of Ra's Al Ghul's secrets and slaughtering all his guards before getting taken by Ra's himself in a profoundly awesome way. Plenty of parallels between the two of them, and he Ra's even claimed that Bane was the perfect man for his daughter (who had stopped liking him by now)...

I really wish I knew how that story ended.

From: [personal profile] da_reap
Well, mind you, I got this story from scans in S_D of old (part of the whole 'Rumble in Gotham' series of posts that were SOOO good), but as I recollect it Talia and Bane met while hunting the same person for different reasons. And they seemed to hit it off. Sexy fun times, Bane gradually fell for her, she didn't seem to like that her dad approved of him, she cut things off and called him a beast... Honestly, Talia's gradual distaste for Bane was like the only weak point of the story. They never gave a real reason why she stopped liking him.

But the rest of the story was so damn good that I can overlook it.

I vaguely remember the Rumble in Gotham posts! I guess she has some daddy issues, or maybe she only likes his arch-enemies.

Hey, Bane KNOWS daddy issues. Between his own and Talia's (LOVE the story where Bane thought his father was Thomas Wayne for awhile), no wonder he could start up Rent-A-Bane! :D

Really, when Vandal Savage is your dad, having Bane as father figure is a huge step up. I love Scandal's boxers, someone had an icon of that at one time, I wish I had grabbed it.

Wait I just noticed this. Scandal having been sitting on a man's toilet... when she got up was considerate enough to leave the seat UP for him.

Nice odd little touch contrasted with the old joke of how men always forget to put the seat down.
