Batman/Superman #3 Gives Us The Earliest Origins Of Their Bromance

In today's battle between Batman and Superman from the New 52 and Earth Two past, in hyperdetailed and stylised gorgeousness from Jae Lee, we get an early meeting of the pair from a different world, drawn by Yidilray Cinar, or a much simpler world.

The relationship between Batman and Superman has been a favourite for slash fiction shippers over the years. Maybe we get some answers?

There's one common question regarding the pair in such speculation, regarding their respective… positions. Well, it's answered, plain and directly.


However, if performance issues are in question, we do rapidly discover that Bruce Wayne is a terrible… batman.



Again, a question loaded with significance, especially when answered thus;

It was… an arranged bromance? Suddenly all the magic has gone!

Batman/Superman #3 by Greg Pak, Jae Lee and Yildilray Cinar is published today.
