It may not be shipping but so far it is a good story featuring our favorite pair(and I will take what I can get). Ever notice how naturally funny Bruce and Diana are with each other. Neither character alone is that funny but together they have the best banter which Snyder showcases very well. And yes there seems to be a lot of subtext and Diana seems to be carrying some kind of secret knowledge regarding Bruce. I hope the next issue is as good as these last two have been.

One book I wish to get. Also I agree for some reason bruce and diana when they talk to each other give each othersense of fun. Maybe because they both never experienced what would be considered a normal childhood one raised to be a warrior because of her tribe. The other forced to grow up because of the murder of his parents and skipped the idea of childhood all together because of that tragedy. Maybe we and the characters subconciously get that because of the situations they grew up in. I think kid stuff one of my favorite jlu episodes explained that and you can get the idea of that a bit from dianas prospective as well. With bruce and clark their relationship is a lot like narutos and sasuke maybe that is why I liked that show besides having bad ass ninjas though my favorite characters are rock lee and hinata the most. Bruce is snarky towards clark and understands that and is okay with it though he tries to bring in some cheer in it . When they are written correctely that is I think. Why I am not a fan of bat cat I always seen selinas teasing of bruce as her mocking his mission than more than a lovers way of giving him a smile. Ironcially enough when bruce and diana banter is if they are good friends with hidden emotions and that seems more how lovers banter to each other I think. Or a relationship that has not only good romance but the partners respect each other. I never got that with selina and bruces banter though. I think she is always talking down to him in that regard but that is just how I see it

I know, right ? There is just something so light and fun about the banter Diana and Bruce share together. It's just such an entertaining dynamic that you don't find anywhere else. THIS is what I call chemistry, where both characters feel the most like themselves, or even their best selves, when they're together. This is not even something unique to how Snyder writes them, this has been pretty consistent in any decently written BM/WW story. The two simply jell together effortlessly. You don't see that for either in any of their other relationships. I still can't believe that there are clowns out there who claim that BMWW is "out of character" with a straight face. I guess it's out of character if all you're used to is garbage stories by King and his likes.

Anyway, I agree Diana is definitely hiding a secret about Bruce, and so far she seems to know a lot of stuff about Bruce that he himself doesn't know. It's certainly something terrible, as that would explain why she insisted on him not continuing on his journey and coming with her instead. I'm hoping that there is some BMWW somewhere in there. If there is it's guaranteed to be tragic, as I have a very strong feeling Diana ain't surviving this book. I'm a sucker for tragic BMWW, so fingers crossed Snyder throw us a bone here, if only for the s**t show that would result on twitter XD

Sorry, is that i had put in my head that SMWW mostly happens whenever the worlds heads to the shitter, which i guess is only fitting. You've got: Kingdom Come, Distant Fire, Created Equal, The Dark Knight Strikes Again, Act of God, The New 52 (heh), Justice League Beyond 2.0 (God, i still hate this story).
Injustice was a similar continuity as well. And funny you bring up the more stable continuity as a prerequisite for BMWW, as Tom Taylor said that Clark's fever dream with Bruce and Diana married was an example of a "good timeline".

I guess I just had a couple of stories on my mind when I wrote my post. Yeah I admit that the majority of any BMWW that we've gotten were in pretty stable environments. It's just been so long since we've seen any real BMWW in the comics, with the most recent being the Merciless, which is probably why I had that weird impression about BMWW being tied to post apocalyptic stories. Still I'd take BMWW in any shape or form, post apocalyptic or not.

Honestly, nothing surprises me anymore. I mean his entire run has been about putting Batman in endless emotional torture with zero resolutions.

Tom King sucks, so I'm not expecting anything worthwhile to come from it. From a competent writer I would expect that Bane is about to wish that Batman killed people. Like that poor bastard would end up permanently paralyzed from the neck down, strapped to a chair, with his eye permanently forced open looking up at a picture of Alfred's smiling face for the rest of his god forsaken life. Batman is fully capable of being sadistic, just ask Lord Death Man.

I don't expect it to last. I'm 90% sure that the next writer to come after King is completely finished with Batman is going to fully retcon absolutely every single thing he ever wrote with DC's blessing.

Please don't tell me that's Catwoman in LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH.
Edit: I look it up and it definitely is. Tom King is even replying back.

Goddamn it. I knew that Scott Snyder would probably chicken out and bow down to the status quo, because that's how he is, but i was hoping that at the very least Catwoman wouldn't appear since he never was huge on the character.

Can't we at least have a polyamorous relationship with the three of them? Both women are bi, all three are good looking and in incredible shape, it is kind of a throwback to Diana's creators, it might help Selena move past all her bullshit, it would make a lot of different fanbases happy...?

I don't remember when, but it has been in canon for awhile now. For Wonder Woman the idea was put in to explain that she didn't leave Themyscira just to get laid, and for Selena they actually had her hook up with some woman for a storyline.

Imagine how a lot less miserable we'd all be if we all wanted Batman to be with Zatanna more than any other woman.

A LOT lot less. lmfao.

if they did put batman in a relationship with selina and diana at the same time all the superman fans who hate the lois and clark relationship will go crazy. But with our post modernist world that would work actually. Also Diana could have inferred to have those ideals of bisexuality because she comes from a matriachical society which makes that idea more permissive. But maybe that was the reason marston put a normal relationship for her with a bland steve trevor because those ideas were not accepted during that era even though there is proof he supported them. So that would probably make sense for diana. As for selina being bi sexial that was introduced barely five years ago. But that is the reason why that relationship with bruce does not work. Bruce is a traditional one woman at a time person he would never let his girlfriend have a relationship with another woman unless he was maybe involved. LIke the others who suggested this idea of a threesome. I can see why it is brought up but why it is a bad idea also. Also I would not mind if bruce and zatanna dated either.

Man... I just... Will never get the fucking appeal of this nonsense. And why bother with these alternative continuities if we're just going to rehash the same old bullshit in them? Wtf happened where even the Elseworld outings have lost their narrative boldness?!?!? DC is just intent on poisoning their own well. It's like they've learned nothing from the drop off King brought on their best selling title. Stop beating a dead horse already!!!!

So in the newest issue of Batman King outdid himself with how many Bat/Cat he put in this issue. Oh and Bane has control of Gotham, Alfred is presumed dead, Damian is a hostage but hey as long as he is with Selina on a tropical island its all good. How the fuck did we get to this?
