Okay but what if there were a Team Batgirl book with Oracle calling the shots and Black Bat and Batgirl out in the field (or Nightwing!Steph and Batgirl!Nell yesplease)… that started out as a question but now I just really want that
I’ve spoken about wanting a book like that in the past, actually! Even had conversations with other fans about who should be the theoretical writer/artist for the book. A lot of people tend to go with either Bryan Q. Miller or Gail Simone for writing, but my personal belief tends to be that Cass is a lot harder to get right as a character than Babs or Steph, so I’d rather have a writer who’s proven they can write her well, which neither Miller nor Simone has (and in fact, Miller’s treatment of Cass was pretty dang problematic, though I’m willing to believe there was editorial interference involved.)
My personal choice would be Dylan Horrocks, who had a quite good run on Cass’s Batgirl series and wrote some absolutely fantastic scenes between the three:
The choice of artist is less tricky as I can think of a bunch who’d do a great job… but as we were discussing the other day, Marcus To needs a project worthy of his talents, and he’s definitely shown he can draw all three of them fantastically:
So that would be my dream team for the book. :-) Dylan Horrocks as the writer, Marcus To on art.
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.
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. :-)
