EDIT: For those wondering. what may have began as a joke is now a serious discussion regarding Batman's most famous sidekick Robin and the misinformation surrounding him. Be mature when coming to discuss the subject!

Damn whatever/whoever brought this whole "gay notion" on the Robin/Batman characters. Maybe it came from the Adam West show.

During 50s some doctor claimed Batman stories were homosexual or so because some stories showed Batman and Robin sharing beds and so forth, this is why female characters such as Batgirl and Batwoman were created i believe.

The only homosexual character in the Batfamily happens to be Batwoman. Joker has been shown doing sexual taunts to Batman but hey he's the Joker, he has no morals. =p

Blame Fredric Wertham and his book "Seduction of the Innocent" published in 1954 that claimed Batman and Robin were gay partners. It's where the stigma began and the primary reason the Comics Code Authority came into being.

Seems about right. It would take a total nutbar to make a book and entitle it "Seduction of the Innocent".

You can soooo tell he missed the first issue of Batman.

I love how this thread started as a light hearted joke but has had some really interesting info posted in it.

There have been many ideas thrown around that wayne is gay or bi-sexual thus his issues with woman I have even read one idea that proposed Batman and Joker have an underlying sexual tension.

My take is Bats is straight and love/sex doesnt fit into his driven equation.Wayne has daddy issues not mommy issues :)

As for Joker I can totally believe he is very open sexually ;)

I've always had a morbid curiosity in regard to certain aspects of the Joker's relationship with Harley. Considering some of Alan Moore's recent works I figure he'd be a great writer to tackle the subject, assuming it hasn't be covered in depth by another writer already.

There is a train of thought that some men that are sexually ambiguous had problems with their mothers. Not saying I agree but there it is.

As for Batman it is assumed he had father issues ie he let his parents down because he wasnt man enough. It is even alluded to in the game when he is taunted by his dead fathers corpse.

As for Joker I agree he kept wanting to pull his pants down in front of bats he even offered a cavity search :eek:

Seriously? Yuck. Ivy's not into guys, period. At least, from what I've seen. She doesn't seem to actually be sexual at all. Just uses what works to get what she wants.

I actually thought she was over the top in AA -- what you just wrote is...yuck. (Not saying it's your fault if it's true, though!) She's not desperate for Batman, by any means. Except, maybe, as plant food.

This one here. This is the point.

As for that Ivy picture, well, I would call it a silly objectification of women.... if it wasn't Ivy. But since Ivy is an erotomaniac, I guess it sort of makes sense.

The comic itself... well if youre a fan of his Bruce Wayne story arcs then i'd say its good for the 15-20 dollar prize. :) It has the Bat-mite issue, the Batmen of many nations and Robin dies at Dawn issue too for example. It's load of different issues were you see alot of same things you saw in his Bruce Wayne story arc but then some of the other sources seem more far fetched.

From wikipedia:

Homosexual interpretations and legal threats from DC Comics
Bruce Wayne and **** Grayson.

There has been some controversy over various sexual interpretations made regarding the content of Batman comics. Homosexual interpretations have been part of the academic study of Batman since psychologist Fredric Wertham asserted in his Seduction of the Innocent in 1954 that "Batman stories are psychologically homosexual." He claimed, "The Batman type of story may stimulate children to homosexual fantasies, of the nature of which they may be unconscious." Wertham wrote, "Only someone ignorant of the fundamentals of psychiatry and of the psychopathology of sex can fail to realize a subtle atmosphere of homoeroticism which pervades the adventures of the mature 'Batman' and his young friend 'Robin.'"[122]

Andy Medhurst wrote in his 1991 essay "Batman, Deviance, and Camp" that Batman is interesting to gay audiences because "he was one of the first fictional characters to be attacked on the grounds of his presumed homosexuality," "the 1960s TV series remains a touchstone of camp," and "[he] merits analysis as a notably successful construction of masculinity."[123]

Creators associated with the character have expressed their own opinions. Writer Alan Grant has stated, "The Batman I wrote for 13 years isn't gay. Denny O'Neil's Batman, Marv Wolfman's Batman, everybody's Batman all the way back to Bob Kane... none of them wrote him as a gay character. Only Joel Schumacher might have had an opposing view." Writer Devin Grayson has commented, "It depends who you ask, doesn't it? Since you're asking me, I'll say no, I don't think he is ... I certainly understand the gay readings, though."[124] While Frank Miller has described the relationship between Batman and the Joker as a "homophobic nightmare,"[125] he views the character as sublimating his sexual urges into crime fighting, concluding, "He'd be much healthier if he were gay."[126] Burt Ward, who portrayed Robin in the 1960s television show, has also remarked upon this interpretation in his autobiography Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights; He writes that the relationship could be interpreted as a sexual one, with the show's double entendres and lavish camp also possibly offering ambiguous interpretation.[127]

Such homosexual interpretations continue to attract attention. One notable example occurred in 2000, when DC Comics refused to allow permission for the reprinting of four panels (from Batman #79, 92, 105 and 139) to illustrate Christopher York's paper All in the Family: Homophobia and Batman Comics in the 1950s.[128] Another happened in the summer of 2005, when painter Mark Chamberlain displayed a number of watercolors depicting both Batman and Robin in suggestive and sexually explicit poses.[129] DC threatened both artist and the Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts gallery with legal action if they did not cease selling the works and demanded all remaining art, as well as any profits derived from them.

The post is a joke, which actually spinned into a mature discussion on why the media sees Batman and Robin as a homosexual partners and whatnot.

I am not trying to bait or flame here but personaly I find modern Batman inappropriate for children anyway. from Zsaz to the guy that butchred Arkhams wife and daughter ( he is referenced in the botanical gardens by headless statue, Its all pretty heavy stuff.

If he asked you who is oracle would you give him a copy of killing joke to read?

Funny story, I found a copy of it (killing Joke) in a kids section at a bookstore and the guy said its a batman book thats kids stuff. Then I asked him to look thru it and he freaked out lol

Its a dark world for kids. Honestly I think you kid would see the humor in it but hey thats just me.

This. As of this writing I haven't seen anyone complaining about the thread where Ivy's half naked. How is that appropriate if the picture posted here is not? Did you cover your son's eyes when the scantily clad Ivy made her appearance in the game? The picture posted here is not offensive unless you have a problem with men kissing, which says a lot. Would a picture of Batman kissing Catwoman bring the same ire? What's the difference? This thread has evolved from a minor joke into a mature discussion about Batman and how he's been viewed over the years, like Drazar said.

I for one would like the thread to remain open, for those of us that know how to take a joke and have an open mind.

This is interesting. Let me get this straight: I don't want kids (not just my own) seeing the big picture of Batman kissing Robin, so I'm a homophobe who should live in a bomb shelter and you feel sorry for my son and I should leave.

Yeah, I guess you could say I have a problem with throwing out blatant homosexuality into the Batman universe when everybody knows full well elementary age kids will see it. At the least, that's rude....you know, that's not even what Batman was ever about but that's beside the point. Would you go into the school and show that pic to the 6th graders? No, that'd be wrong, you'd probably be led off in handcuffs. But you think it's OK here.

Why isn't this in the off-topic section, anyway? What does this have to do with BAA gameplay?

Matches Malone

Batman is a mature character and isn't suitable for 6th graders anyway. If a child isn't old enough to see a harmless joke of a picture of Batman & Robin kissing then the said child isn't old enough for 75% of most things Batman anyway, including Batman AA.

cronball
16th Sep 2009, 15:23
Yeah like I said before. How can an innocent picture like that be bad enough for me to be hauled off in handcuffs but all the sex and violence in a Batman comic ( including the game) be okay?!

Would you give this game to the 6th graders in question? Would you give them almost ANY modern batman title/novel ? The killing joke, Dark knight returns etc.. Lets remember the game is rated t for teens but frankly I wouldnt have a problem with a younger kid playing it as your 12 year old does.

Your being a bit of a hypocrite. I get that you are offended by gays or its against your religious beliefs or whatever but dont say that picture is offensive or harmful to kids then let your kid play a game thats not rated for him. What Batman titles has he read? And how old was he when he started reading them.

Are you afraid if he saw the picture he might "catch gay"

If Batman had been kissing Batgirl would that have been okay? Lets remember that in batman Beyond Barbara told Terry she and Bruce had been together.

The spanking argument isnt convincing for the alleged gay assumption. As Drazar rightly pointed out it was not uncommon for Batman to spank woman as well.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_6hDZt1e0ofY/SP-UoXlvp1I/AAAAAAAAB-w/7dD1tTiUPgM/s400/batman+spanking.jpg

Other comic characters have done it as well such as the creeper:

http://www.luchins.com/****ery/Flash%20321-spanky.jpg

And as someone pointed out even macho icons such as John Wayne often did it in films:

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_6hDZt1e0ofY/SP-Bwt5QK5I/AAAAAAAAB-A/zJtMoSLM07s/s400/mclintock.jpg

One must remember that the conventions of that time were more innocent. A man and younger boy sleeping in the same bed was not thought of as perverted. My guess is that the writers did it to appeal to the then much younger audience of boys. It was like having a sleepover with Batman.

Nothing I have read to date convinces me of the Batman/Robin gay argument. On the contrary batman is clearly attracted to woman as is evidenced by his various liaisons with Talia, Selina, Vicky Vale and numerous other.

Hell he even fathered a child with Talia.

My opinion? He is straight and the old stuff from from golden and silver age is harmless and not convincing.

Oh and I would say any discussion regarding Robin IS relevant to the game as it reflects some players feeling towards the character and possible reasons they might not want him in DLC or sequel. Lets face it some of the arguments are irrational like calling him rainbow boy or not edgy enough etc. Essentially saying he is to "gay" to be in the game. This was intended to highlight that and put a humorous spin on it.

The thread WAS intended to illustrate this point in a humorous manner. Consider the title please, but it turned into an interesting discussion on the Batman/Robin mythology.

But as I stated earlier if any mod wishes to close or move it thats fine. I wouldnt want armoredfist to leave the community over this as I feel he is a true Batman fan and a good contributor to the forums. But honestly I think it it is relavent to the current discussions.

so I'm a homophobe who should live in a bomb shelter and you feel sorry for my son and I should leave.
Yes. Exactly. If you live in a bomb shelter, the world can't threaten you with ideas you're uncomfortable with. It's for your own protection.


Yeah, I guess you could say I have a problem with throwing out blatant homosexuality into the Batman universe when everybody knows full well elementary age kids will see it. At the least, that's rude....you know, that's not even what Batman was ever about but that's beside the point.
How is it rude and how is it a problem if elementary age kids see it? What are you trying to hide them from?

Would you go into the school and show that pic to the 6th graders? No, that'd be wrong, you'd probably be led off in handcuffs. But you think it's OK here.
In Texas, yeah, maybe you'd be led off in handcuffs. Doubt that'd happen anywhere else. At most, you'd get a bunch of ignorant parents like yourself throwing a fit.

The spanking argument isnt convincing for the alleged gay assumption. As Drazar rightly pointed out it was not uncommon for Batman to spank woman as well.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_6hDZt1e0ofY/SP-UoXlvp1I/AAAAAAAAB-w/7dD1tTiUPgM/s400/batman+spanking.jpg

Other comic characters have done it as well such as the creeper:

http://www.luchins.com/****ery/Flash%20321-spanky.jpg

And as someone pointed out even macho icons such as John Wayne often did it in films:

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_6hDZt1e0ofY/SP-Bwt5QK5I/AAAAAAAAB-A/zJtMoSLM07s/s400/mclintock.jpg

One must remember that the conventions of that time were more innocent. A man and younger boy sleeping in the same bed was not thought of as perverted. My guess is that the writers did it to appeal to the then much younger audience of boys. It was like having a sleepover with Batman.

There is a train of thought that some men that are sexually ambiguous had problems with their mothers. Not saying I agree but there it is.

I know, and as a gay man I say that that is such an out of date, unfounded, and completely wrong train of thought. It's disrespectful to women as well, and for the record I have encountered many gay men who have problems actually with their fathers (to counter your point of "Bats can't be gay because of his daddy issues.").

Aside from that, being gay isn't a mental illness. I can't believe people will still reference such an archaic thought! :eek:

In saying that: I must say I proud of this forum for handling the homophobic hypocrite. I expected most of you to be like all the gamers out there (you know the ones that go: THATZ SOOO GHEYYY OMFG F46GIIITTTTTTT :rolleyes:).

ArmoredFist's thinly veiled homophobia (which he claims not to have yet keeps on calling the image "disgusting" and "rude" yet not ONCE mentioned Posion Ivy or Harley Quinn's new outfits in the game he GLADLY allows his 6th grader to play) is absolutely sickening. His justifications of it are comical, exactly how is seeing two guys kissing going to corrupt your son? You're just afraid you're son might be gay aren't you. *sigh* For his sake, let's hope he's not. I fear what you'd do to the poor boy.

Afterall, he fathered a child AFTER the fact that book claiming Bats was gay came out.

Who's to say that a new writer can't make Batman gay (much to the dismay of the Batman fans)? DC might not let it happen, but then again didn't they allow Bruce to die?

16th Sep 2009, 21:48
Oh I agree it is subjective to the whims of the writers. I'm just saying the current evidence doesnt support the notion he is gay. In fact it would seem to lean the other way. But far be it from me to destroy your own personal batman fantasies :p

As for the Daddy issue thing is was purely a jest and I pointed out I didn't agree with it anyway ;) It is unfortunate we still live in a society with archaic ideals. If someone wrote a story implying he and grayson had a brief affair I would not be shocked or taken aback.

On the other hand if it was Sgt Bullock I might puke my guts out :nut:

As for Bruce being dead if I may paraphrase Mark Twain the reports of his death may be exaggerated ;)

Schumacher's batsuit nipples and cod pieces in that travesty of a flick, B&R, DeVito's sex comments in "Returns", Ivy gyrating all over the place in the game...I don't know why that stuff is in there, but it doesn't belong IMO.

You can't really consider Robin a metrosexual since you don't see homosexuals going around in his clothing either. =p Also if you people keep syaing "cant we have a better thread?" just don't POST here.

I think everything comes to this. If there is one thing I learnt by reading a couple Batman comics and watching some of the movies/cartoons... is that there isn't one Batman, but many.

Batman? He can be homosexual, heterosexual, or bisexual. He can be a secluded sociopath or an outgoing playboy. He can be the sole and lonely dark hero of Gotham or be part of a big team with Robin and Nightwing and Batgirl and Catwoman etc. etc.

The positive thing about such incoherence, is that everyone is free to have their own image of how Batman is. Do you want Bruce Wayne to have a romantic relationship with Robin? Fine, he can as well have it. Do you prefer Bruce Wayne to be in love with Catwoman? Sure, there are many stories that support that.
There's such a freedom of interpretation here, that I think everyone is right regardless of how they think Batman is.

^This

It's also why Batman is serious in Nolan's eyes, but yet he was goofy in the sixty's version, why Jack Nicholoson portrayed a goofy Joker, and why Heath Ledger portrayed a serious, pyschcopathic Joker. It depends who writes Batman, or who is directing him. I love every interpretation, because each one is completely different.

I have to agree it seems to me some of the arguments against Robin being in sequel are that he is not intense enough or that he is to kiddy looking or "gay" if you will. I dont feel that is a fair stereotype (although the pixie boots are a bit camp). I believe they refer to him as "rainbow robin" which does have gay connotations.

Clearly some anti robin posters want a tougher or darker looking robin and that is their only reason for leaving him out of the game. I would like to see him do a cameo, but I do hope its the modern robin look.

So I totally get the "joke" of this thread and feel it is relevant and aimed at such discussions which makes it a valid thread. The fact that certain posters wish to start flames and get it OT is not the fault of the op imho. My take is he/she was trying to shine a light on this viewpoint by using humor which is a valid concept.

My views on Batman's sexuality are that he is straight but is often portrayed in a camp manner. Even some of his darker incarnations could be viewed as homo erotic, its purley subjective.

Interesting thread. Keep it open and hopefully people who dont like it will simply not participate in it and not try to disrupt it.

No writer has intentionally wrote Batman to be gay. It's just how we currently interpret the more "silly situations" from the comics that were very normal however many odd decades ago. I have always considered Batman to be the hyper masculine alpha male.

Its not a big deal, just avoid the thread if you don't want to read it. It's nice to have active threads anyway, nobody spends much time in the off-topic forum. And spam is not the appropriate term to use, there is a meaningful, thoughtful, and intellectual conversation going on about Batman, who happens to be the centerpiece of Batman AA. Like I said the forum is dead now and its not like the thread is cluttering up the forum or hindering its functionality, its a very active thread. If you disagree with someone's opinion say something or just avoid the thread. Our differences are sometimes the only thing we have in common.

Yeah i'm going to have to agree. Especially when/if you Hunter quote very big pictures and cause others to have to scroll down more. It's really just your safety settings that you need to change.

Anyhow yeah Jim Lee's Robin design for All Star was pretty nifty, but i'd prefer something more comic loyal like:
http://i37.tinypic.com/k1ds4.jpg

Ofcourse if they feel the need to add the green colour scheme they could go with something like:
http://i38.tinypic.com/296d8hw.jpg

Or if they want, they could use Damian's design which if you ask me works really well with all the different colours:
http://i33.tinypic.com/2hpk86s.jpg

I'd personally like if the Robin they choose for the game would be Tim Drake pretty much. Wildstorm/Jim Lee have really good style of drawing Nightwing and he would be cool. :thumb: Need some comical character in the sequal like the Joker was in this game. :thumb:

I'd personally like if the Robin they choose for the game would be Tim Drake pretty much. Wildstorm/Jim Lee have really good style of drawing Nightwing and he would be cool. :thumb: Need some comical character in the sequal like the Joker was in this game. :thumb:

Oh yes!!!!! But what versions as I absolutely love some art and then hate others

I'd say Carlos D'anda should remain as the designer for the game. He had excelent designs for the games' villains and his art on the character portrayets we're downright badass. I'd prefer Nightwing to look something like this: click me. (http://i36.tinypic.com/2zrkv7t.jpg)

I never understood how some people saw something homosexual between the two. Those two are like soldiers in war. Any day could be their last so ofcourse they helped each other out alot.

Nah, I was just kidding... It's great how they put interaction between two greatest heroes... ;)

I agree definatly keep Carlos D'anada as the designer in order to keep continuity of the two games and he did a fab job :)

Also liking the link in regards to Nightwings look for the game, like I said before though I do like Jim lee's depiction of him as possibly one of the first image of Nightwing I saw was the one below and even to this day if im searching and I spot this image I think yep thats the guy...

Even if they dont end up using Nightwing/ Robin etc in the sequal (presuming there will be one) I would love to just see there interpretation of my two fav characters
