luanna255 asked:

Question for you... have Bruce and Selina ever had a canon hug? Like in the mainverse comics, I mean? Because the only ones that really come to mind are from JLA: The Nail (which was an Elseworld) and a few times in Selina's dreams/imagination. It seems kind of ridiculous to me that there WOULDN'T be a canon moment like that - I know Bruce doesn't have a reputation as Mr. Hugs, and he's not, but he HAS been known to hug the people he's closest to now and then, and I'd count Selina in that group.

thebatandthecat:

Happy to report that yes indeed, they have had a few canon hugs (though canon is a loose term these days!); however, none that I know of in the current DCU, or at least none that I would classify as a hug. 

These are a few I’ve got ( I haven’t included kissy clinches, of which there are many!). Sadly, these hugs were mostly from a long time ago, but it’s all we’ve got. :-/

Pre-Crisis, Batman #355

Batman: The Long Halloween

Batman: Hush – Is this a hug or a full body clinch?

Catwoman v3 #13 (I count this as a semi-hug, because geebus look at the palpable intimacy in those hands)

Just noticed you’d replied to this! Thanks SO much for taking the time to answer. :-)

#dick just flipping flips EVERYWHERE LIKE???? flipping squirrel

!!!!!!!!! This scene is one of my absolute favorites from the comics (it’s from Darwyn Cooke’s DC: The New Frontier - one of the few Elseworld stories, if you can call it that, that I really love), but I’d never seen the animated version!

For reference, here’s the original comic scene:

For some reason, it’s really hard to find the full thing online, so I thought some of you might not have seen it. As you can see, Dick’s quite the acrobatic little monkey in the original, too! (He’s showing off for Superman. xD)

Overall, I think it looks like they adapted it really well, although I hope they kept in the “We’re just two lost souls who found each other” line. And the sweet goodbye between Bruce and Clark.

I really want to watch the movie now!

Anonymous asked:

some people think bruce is a terrible person for taking young boys and putting them in danger just to use them like his personal soldiers and that he was adult, therefore he shouldn't give to the children's whimps....I'm curiuos what will be your answer to that?

I do think there’s some truth to that, actually. He’s taking children as young as eight in some continuities (Dick was eight when he became Robin in the original canon) and taking them out to fight some of the most dangerous and evil criminals in the world. That’s iffy at best and criminally irresponsible at worst. The fact that he’s now lost three of the five mainverse Robins speaks to the truth of that, I think. I may not like DC’s decision to kill off those characters, but I can’t really argue that it’s unrealistic. (Of course, realistically Bruce would probably have died a hundred times over, too.) Even with the ones who survived, there were close calls - Two-Face nearly beat Dick to death when Dick was thirteen, for example (as told in Robin #0 of Tim’s series and Robin: Year One).

So how do you explain Bruce taking a risk like that with a child’s life without making him look like an awful person? To me, the best explanation is either (1) that he saw they were going to do it anyway, with or without his approval, and realized that in that case the best thing he could do would be to train them and keep them under his wing to give them their best chance of survival, or (2) he saw something in them that made him believe that, if they weren’t given crimefighting as an outlet, they would go down a worse path. These two explanations can also be combined. (And, of course, these are only general explanations - there were more specific factors at play for each of the Robins/Batgirls, but I’m not gonna go through that here.)

At the end of the day, it is hard to justify, though, and suspension of disbelief is really necessary - especially to explain why Bruce kept taking on Robins after Jason died. (“Batman needs a Robin” is all very well, but is that really justification for endangering a child’s life? What about what the child needs?) There’s never gonna be an explanation which makes perfect sense, there are only explanations which make more sense (and make Bruce look less irresponsible) than others.

#ugh.  #he got the playboy Bruce down so very well  #too bad he was shit at the rest

I actually think he was a good Bruce, period. I mean, I think we can all agree that his Batman voice sounded effing stupid, but for all we know that may have been something Nolan told him to do. And generally, I really liked his Bruce. The problem to me is that after the first movie, they stopped really focusing on Bruce as a character, and he was consistently being outshown by villains (TDK) or supporting characers (TDKR). But to me, that’s the fault of the writing, not Mr. Bale. He’s a good actor, but he only had what he was given to play.

The Nolan movies have a lot of flaws, but to me casting Christian Bale as Bruce wasn’t one of them.

Interestingly, I’ve heard a number of comments claiming that his Bruce Wayne was a bit too mean-spirited. Almost too arrogant. But I think it depends on how you headcanon the character.

Personally, I would’ve preferred someone that could sell his smile as being a bit more genuine and well-intentioned, but there’s no doubt that Christian nailed the “fake but somehow very charming” aspect of his socialite persona. I think it comes down to how sharp and bratty you like your Bruce to be. Some fans thought Christian’s rendition was a bit too immature and obnoxious, while plenty others thought he hit the mark of what a “billionaire playboy” should be.

I’m a bit on the fence, really. I certainly don’t think he did a bad job, as Bruce Wayne or as Batman. Not my ideal choice, but he suited Nolan’s vision for the character, which by its own merit is very critical and grim. Nolan’s Batverse isn’t a happy place, so a more cheerful, endearing Bruce (even as an actor, playing the persona) would’ve stuck out quite a bit in that world. Bruce, after all, is a reflection of Gotham. As a character, he’s a reflection of the version of Gotham the creator builds for him.

Also, I agree with that last comment as well. The series did what so many other “mega action” trilogies do /cough/Matrix/. It got so ambitious and complex that the focus shifted too far away from the main character. We lost him in the chaos.

I don’t really mind Bruce being a bit of a sassy jerk when he’s in his Playboy Bruce persona (as opposed to the real Bruce that people like Alfred, Dick, and Selina get to see) because the Playboy Bruce persona is, by definition, not Bruce’s real personality. I also kind of see it as Bruce’s reflection of the shallow people he sees around him, and I bet he sees a lot of really arrogant and obnoxious socialites, so that’s what he mimics. Besides that, I do think there’s a side of Bruce which kind of enjoys getting to be a sassy jerk, whatever he may want the rest of us to believe. ;-)

When it comes to the real Bruce, I do think you could argue Nolan’s version had too many rough edges there too, and that frankly bothers me more. It works for the first movie, I think, because that was specifically a young Bruce, just starting out his Batman career and still figuring himself out in a lot of ways. The problem, to me, is that he never grows out of it, and that ties into the problem I was talking about before - the later two movies really stop focusing on Bruce. And additionally, instead of Bruce becoming more mature and heroic as the movies go on, things just get darker and darker and he just seems to get more and more depressed. Which is understandable, but it’s not really inspiring. I guess you could argue that he pulls himself out of it at the end of TDKR, but that’s just too rushed to feel like proper character development to me, and, more damningly, his solution is to stop being Batman entirely, which doesn’t fit Bruce to me.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again - for someone who hates Robin, Nolan actually did a really good job of showing why Batman needs a Robin. I saw it especially in TDKR - being Batman makes Bruce nothing but miserable, he’s desperate for a genuine connection with someone else and someone to give him hope for the future, he needs someone to help pull him out of the darkness. And Selina does that for him in a way, but she gives him a way out instead of being someone who can join his life as Batman and make it more tolerable for him. And that’s what I think Bruce really needed. He needed Robin.

(And no, I don’t mean John Blake. Don’t y’all even go there.)

One of Bruce’s least attractive qualities to me, as a parent/mentor, is the way he’s constantly comparing the kids to each other. It’s like he’s constantly ranking them in order somehow, deciding who’s better than whom, or has the potential to be better than whom, etc., etc. Which would be fine, except that he doesn’t just think this to himself, he says it right to their freaking faces. What kind of effect is that gonna have?

I know a lot of people find these kind of scenes heartwarming, but to me, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Sure, Bruce is complimenting one kid, but he’s insulting another one in the same breath. And more to the point, he’s creating (IMO) a very unhealthy attitude of competition, where each kid is measured up not just by their own standards, but against all of the others’.

I can’t help but feel it creates a situation where, at the end of the day, no one really wins.

Due to the nature of Batman and it’s fandom, every single AU has already been made, or thought of, at least once. Since I’ve recently seen a couple of Western AUs lying around on tumblr, I just wanted to share some of my little headcanons. Because I LOVE westerns. All fandoms require a Mafia AU and a Western AU, and that’s my rule.First of all, if Robin (Dick Grayson) isn’t of Native American decent in your western au, then I just don’t know what to tell ya. I am mostly aware of Apache tribes, so I’m most inclined to have his father’s origin come from one of them. His mother would be American. He’d be able to speak a range of different languages and would serve as an interpreter (just sometimes, when BatMan just really didn’t know).I don’t think BatMan would intentionally promote the idea that he has anything to do with bats - in the beginning. I guess it would be just something that caught on because he wore black. THEN, he would adopt the name. His horse’s name is ´Mobile´ and I don’t even care. Furthermore, Batman would be, originally from a very rich family, but after his parents death all money was lost and frankly he didn’t care. He travelled a lot and tried to get revenge, but he eventually understood that helping people was the real deal.I don’t see this AU working without the use of guns. It’s the WILD WEST, I think it would be unnecessarily complicated for him not to make use of guns. I don’t think that - in my story - he would hold a grudge against guns. Of course he wouldn’t shoot to kill, he would take criminals to justice.

This needs more notes~! It’s really fun & lovely.

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS.
