Everyone’s done vengeance, everyone’s done "The night is so dark." Giving Batman more pain doesn’t reveal anything about his character because he’s taken as much pain as he can. But giving him love and joy, that combines with the tragedy of his past into something new... -- Tom King

I'm actually really interested to see how this will turn out.

DC editorial see the issue

Massive rewrite

Catwoman says no, smacks Bruce up the head, and steals the ring and rides off in the Batmobile.

Just , joking. I really think this would be a bold direction for Batman and Catwoman as a character.
Man, this will be weird if this happens. That two out of the DC trinity will be married and have kid(s).

I like Tom King's quote. Hope something really good comes from this.

Thinking about it, if the two marry, Selina would become Damien's mother-in-law. Oh man, it would be interesting to see the dynamic between those two... and then getting Talia's reaction now that's better...

And if this plotline sticks around and other writers use it, mom's night out with Selina and Lois! Oh my god, the ideas and possibilities! DC, stick with this as long as you possibly can!!

wouldn't it be step-mom?
Anyways, Selina acting as a Mother to Damian is something... i REALLY have been wanting DC to do. How she would be a VERY different kind of parent figure for Damian.

Probably so. I had a brain fart.

Agreed. I would love to see how she deals with him. Also, again, seeing Talia interact with Damian's new stepmom would also lead to interesting potential.

I could totally see her being VERY protective of Damien. kinda like the opposite of Talia. she always had a soft spot for kids. Talia is like: You failed son! this mutant clone of you is my new favorite!>!>!

I really want to see Selina going "TAKE. YOUR. HANDS. OFF. MY. SON.

and Damien being both warmed by the moment, and terrified by the shear amount of violence Selina is capable of.

I actually would want for it to be a more restrained moment. sort of like Talia paralyzed as Selina calmly tells her "You come near Damien ever again, I will ****** murder you on the spot".

the only thing for me is that Selina is usually shown as very methodical and restrained. her acting out like this would be against type. plus Damien would respect the violence.

Yeah, that'a good point. I recall how in the elseworld "The Nail", Catwoman becomes FURIOUS after Joker murders Robin and Batgirl.

Sniper rifle. Bruce spends three issues hallucinating in a hospital bed while Catwoman puts on her slightly blacker catsuit and goes into Rampage Mode. We keep flashing back and forth between the moment of the gunshot, Bruce in the hospital bed, and Bruce leaving Selina because he can't accept what she did to save him. Everyone is very sad. Claire gives Alfred a hug.

Um... Daredevil, maybe? I think he's Marvel's biggest quasi-unpowered street level urban hero at the moment.

I actually really love that Marvel is still petty enough to do stuff like that. Its like old times.

Man I really liked the Necrogenesis event.

Well that would require Black Cat being written like a character and not a generic, indistinguishable mob boss villain that's just inserted anywhere because. Currently, no hero would want to hook up with her.

No but see... erm... it was ALL a ploy! done with....... erm whoever she is going to marry.... and they have been friends and lovers for years! for reals! and she has ALWAYS been a hero!

do you think people would notice if Felicity all of the sudden had short black hair?

You mean like the sort of mob boss that Selina was being written as for some reason?

At least Selina was written well and treated as a 3 dimensional character with reason and purpose, plus motivation as well. Can't say that about Black Cat currently.

From: [personal profile] shadowpsykie
yeah... what informationgeek said. Selina's character and choice at least made sense storywise. Felicia on the other hand seemed like she was written in direct reaction to Selina's move to mob boss and no motivation given other than "Woman scorned"

Iron Man? Sure his power set is different, but he's an unpowered genius egocentric rich kid who is one of the Big Three in the premier superhero organization.

OK, he's currently dead, but no one thinks that'll stick.

I mainlined King's Batman run over the weekend, and from the bit in #1 where he asks Alfred "Is this a good death" I was hooked.

It's the first time I've been reading DC since New 52 Supergirl launched and the first time I've been excited since Palmiotti/Gray/Connor's Power Girl

I wasn't a fan of King's Omega Men, nor his Vision (personal taste thing, is all) but damned if that quote at the top of this post doesn't intrigue me about his Batman run. I mean, I've loved everything Tynion IV has done with the character so far and, if they're of a mindset... hmm...

*flails, as he doesn't need to buy any more ongoings right now*

So Selina says yes, this goes for about 20 years then Bruce sells his marriage to Neron to save Alfred's life...

Or Talia comes in and kills Selina.

Or Diana kills Selina.

Or Harley does.

And also, I thought Bruce was married to Talia. Hard to keep the continuities straight.
