Catwoman's Answer To Batman's Proposal In Batman #32, Revealed [MAJOR SPOILERS]

This is so much of a spoiler that it is not being published on the front page of Bleeding Cool. It is not being tweeted out or posted to Facebook. In fact, the only possible way you could have found it is by searching for it — or from a link by someone who searched for it. If you don't want this spoiler then a) wonder why you came here b) go somewhere else for two days and c) turn off your social media until then.

It will be pushed to the front page only after Comic Book/CBR/Newsarama/whoever else is meant to have the exclusive finds this article and persuades DC Comics that this means they should be able to publish it on their front page now.

UPDATE: And the winner of the prize is… USA Today! Who, as a result of this piece have now been allowed to run their article. Which they call exclusive… Bleeding Cool's original article runs below. And now on the front page, halfway down, probably…


So Batman and Catwoman have a tendency to get it on a lot. From the comics…

…to the TV…

…to the games…


…the statues…


…across the eras.



…and creators…


I mean, they seem to spend most of their nights having sex on a rooftop somewhere.


And current Batman comics have kept this trope alive.


Which must play havoc with the knees. But what about getting down on one of them and popping the question?

There was Alfred's own fanfic in Brave And The Bold. But a parallel version of him was on hand to watch their marriage in Superman Family in 1981, over in Earth-2.


Their child becomes the original Huntress of Earth-2.


The Golden Age Batman and Catwoman had gotten together in an earlier Brave And The Bold…


A story which has been followed up…


And followed up…tumblr_inline_nyhotb0qoi1t6zy88_500

And followed up..tumblr_inline_nyhors5yq61t6zy88_500Selina also managed to get Bruce in the Dark Knight Rises.


And of course, it even happens in real life.


Of course, DC Comics had been against their superheroes getting married of late.


Until DC Reborn established Superman and Lois Lane as a married couple and had Aquaman ask for Mera hand in marriage.


And then in Batman #24 by Tom King and David Finch – in an issue that saw Tom King fire his own editor on the book, Mark Doyle, replaced by Jamie Rich to keep Finch on the all-important scene, Batman got down on one knee and popped the question. And Bruce Wayne asked Selina Kyle to make him an honest Batman.


But before it could be answered, they had to have sex. And Batman had to tell Catwoman a long convoluted story about an aspect of his life, a decision he made long ago which may inform her answer. And so we got the interminable War Of Jokes & Riddles to stretch Catwoman's answer out for months.
