The Batman/Catwoman Cunnilingus Controversy

By Lori Perkins


In an interview in Variety on the subject matter of the so-called “freedom” the superhero TV shows have given writers, it was revealed that DC ordered a scene where Batman goes down on Catwoman removed from a Harley Quinn episode because “heroes don’t do that.”


Twitterverse quickly told DC Comics in no uncertain terms that a) Catwoman gets what she wants when she wants it and that if Batman doesn’t come through, he doesn’t have much of a future with her or b) with their female readership.


Memes were exploding on this subject.










Needless to say, DC is going to have a lot of explaining to do as this new dive into the sex lives of superheroes unfolds.


One Twitter reader wanted to know just what the hell Lois Lane was getting out of her relationship with DC’s Superman.


While another posted a list of the various Batman actors playing the caped crusader in the films with YES or NO by their names.


And another reader summed up the so-called controversy by writing, “My only contribution to this particular discourse is that Adam West’s Batman absolutely would,” which lead to Adam West trending (the actor who played Batman in the ‘60s TV show) and an excerpt from a story about West and Frank Gorshan (who played the Riddler) getting kicked out of a Hollywood orgy for staying in character (just Goggle it).


Ah, these are the reasons I stay on Twitter.
