The world and his fiance knows, it seems, that in recent issues of Tom King's run on the twice-monthly Batman comic book from DC Comics, Catwoman – Seline Kykle has been asked by Batman – Bruce Wane – for her hand in marriage. And, after an archaeological dig into Batman's past over 2-3 months, she replied in the affirmative.
So, when on a mission to meet Bruce Wayne's ex, and mother of his son Damian, Talia Ghul, it was likely that at some point, with Catwoman in the same room, Talia would say something cutting. Run him through, Stab him in the back even.
As well as give us some of Tom King's trademark repetitious dialogue that may or may not be deleted in the final collection.
Now, what do you do with a stab wound, without any obvious medical attention nearby? Let's let Emergency Medical Technician, James Scott tell us on Quora.
LEAVE IT IN PLACE. DO NOT REMOVE ANY IMPALED OBJECT, KNIFE OR OTHERWISE.
As an EMT we are trained to stabilize the impaled object and transport. The knife (or other object could very easily be applying pressure on arteries or veins, preventing them from bleeding out from the cuts. Body tissues are rigid, they'll reform around the wound, so even if you are 100% perfect in keeping the knife along the initial entry path you'll still end up cutting even more tissue causing even greater damage. In that way it's possible to turn a survivable wound into a fatal one. So apply pressure to stop any external bleeding and try to keep the knife in place and call 911.
Yeah, he's bleeding out now, Selina. You're engaged to a corpse. A batcorpse.
