I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, REALLY want this to work out, happen, become enshrined in continuity and never ever be undone. Really.

I loved the progression of their relationship way back in "Hush", was livid when it was undone at the end of that same arc, and am so pumped for this it's insane.

*takes a breath* Woo. Sorry. Little over-invested there.

Yea, my worry is this'll be a 2-years-status-quo-then-undone thing.

'Cause the concept? Works, and it's a big step some people won't like including some writers, but they definitely can make this work.

Even if this wasn't actually a surprisingly nice relationship development and just the attack to try and take Batman off the board for the coming event, I still like it. From that perspective, it improves on the attack on Bruce from Final Crisis, swapping Lump Thomas Wayne for Real Thomas Wayne.

But for the record, if Bruce ever had to marry anyone, I'd have liked it to be Snyder's Julie Madison. Gold standard.

I absolutely loved Julie Madison. I understand why it can't be the relationship for Batman as her love was for Bruce Wayne, but it is probably my favorite Batman romance so far.

Tom King had some fun with the solicit, even:

Armed with the terrifying knowledge gained from the mysterious button, Batman prepares for the coming storm by making a proposition to one of his enemies—one that will change everything for the Dark Knight and his allies!

He's clearly Real-Life Riddler.

Pro: This could make a lot of sense. Selina can take care of herself, and has ties that are useful to the cause. There's no good reason they shouldn't be an enduring power couple.

Con: They could try to bring it into baby/child territory. Logically then someone like Zsasz kills their kid.

Hopefully Tom King thinks these characters are smart.

If they're going to do something tacky like that they should go whole hog and have the child killed by a resurrected Abattoir.

They shouldn't do something tacky like bring a baby into a life where sociopathic murderers occasionally burst in to your mansion seeking revenge. That would be pretty thoughtless writing.

Besides, they'd need to bring back Jean Paul for that.

The wisdom of Bruce and Selina having a child is highly dependent on how smart the writers have Bruce being about using his connections and resources to properly arrange fro the child's protection.

A smart Bruce would arrange something with the Justice League. Ain't no psychopath killing that kid when there are systems in place to bring Superman, Wonder Woman, and any available Flashes and Green Lanterns down on their heads if they get close. Heck, that should already be a thing between all the League members. I can't imagine Clark or Lois saying no to Jon having some sort of panic button that calls for help from the other heroes they trust.

I'll be honest, I just really hate this. Part of it is because I've always found the Bruce/Selina relationship one of the laziest in comics, which is of course just my own opinion, but it kind of goes beyond that.

It feels, to me, that every five or so years we get a writer who is utterly committed to making Bruce/Selina to be that greatest of love stories and that they are meant to be, all of that, while the other writers during that period and after just don't seem to care about that relationship at all. It leaves this start-and-stop relationship with the relationship and almost over-the-top need for those authors to sell this thing as something that needs to be.

I'm of two minds about this. On one hand, the cynical side of me feels that even if King pulls this off successfully, you know that other writers have their own view as to who Batman's OTP is and will try to find a way to wiggle out of it, and that's not even going into how the editors feel about it.

On the fanboy side, I have long, LONG shipped Selina and Bruce, even pre-Hush, going back to Batman Returns and TAS. She's smart, capable, and a local Gotham gal, which just gives her a slight edge over Talia and her propensity for globe-trotting.

And as one final thought: If it does goes through, how would the honeymoon go?

On one hand, I am deeply mistrustful of mainstream superhero comics' abilities to decently write a marriage and not screw it and the readers over simultaneously.

On the other hand, omigosh this is everything I've wanted since I was seven and watching the animated series! Yes! Yes! *happy shrieks*

Yeah, OK.

It's been a long, long while since they've tried this with Bruce and...anyone. So I guess it's about time to bring the Bat&Cat couple back. (He's not going to end up with Silver, nor Julie, nor Talia.... So, yeah, this is the pairing.)

Note that DC recently put Dinah & Ollie back together, and brought back married Lois & Clark. I wouldn't be too surprised to see Dick & Kory back together at this point.

All the Robins can be groomsmen, except Damien can be ring bearer.
Batgirl gets to be the maid of honor. Most of the rest of the bridesmaids will be in cuffs, though...


Either that of the very first page of the next issue is them waking up in Vegas!
