"Batman and Superman against the world."

Superman Batman Love by ~appleFei

art link: http://applefei.deviantart.com/art/superman-batman-love-204426517

What if they've kept their relationship a secret for a long while until they decided to tell us today that they love each other and that they are happy with their relationship, despite of some ups and downs, etc.

I even know a guy who says he is Superman and his boyfriend is Batman.

and what if right now, they are announcing they are going to get married?

1. How would you react?

2. What questions would you ask them?

3. Superman fans, would you still continue buying and collecting Superman comics and merchandises and wear your shirt with the Superman art/logo?

4. Batman fans, would you still continue buying and collecting Batman comics and merchandises and wear your shirt with the Batman art/logo?

Superman and Batman's relationship isn't anything close to love.

Edit:

Batman has protection strong enough for Superman...with enough prep.

I would appreciate if you would answer the questions.

i'll edit my first post so everybody might do the same thing

#10 Posted by alezayas (13 posts) - - Show Bio

It would take me by surprise. As Batman is quite a ladies man (Batman and Catwoman new 52, you know what I'm saying ;) and Superman has been married and they didn't break up but a new storyline with a bachelor Clark's been introduce to renew his sex appeal (idk i'm just making that up :P)

None.

Yes.

Of course.

It really wouldn't bother me if Superman were gay, but Batman is so beneath him that it simply wouldn't work.

#12 Posted by jhazzroucher (15764 posts) - - Show Bio

i'll post my answers here since the laptop i'm using is problematic.

1. I would be very surprised & prolly happy since they're happy.

2. my questions would be:

a. Who fell in love first?

b. Is this actually your first experience or did you have a same-sex relationship with somebody else?

c. Who is the guy or who is the gay? or are you both doing the same thing?

d. Did both of you fell in love with a woman?

e. Which is stronger? your feelings for men or your feelings for women?

f. Did you have more experiences with men or with women?

f. Who actually thought first of telling the world that you are boyfriends and why one of you doesn't want everybody want to know yet?

g. Did you tell a few people that you and you are in love with each other before you told everybody worldwide?

h. Are you planning of adopting children?

i. who would you want to be the best man and bridesmaid on your wedding?

j. when is the wedding?

3. and 4 If my obsession with Batman and Superman is the same as my obsession with Storm, then yes I'd still continue to buy and collect. about wearing, i'm not sure

@jhazzroucher:

1.) I would forever quit DC. I hate it when the mess with history like that.

2.) How does it feel to have your history, past romances and identity robbed?

3.) I'm currently only buying Superboy. So that doesn't effect my enjoyment of that character. As for wearing the S, no.

4.) I'd quit all of them except Red Hood who's mostly on the fringe of the batfamily. As for wearing the bat symbol, no.

This is such a gross oversimplification of their relationship, "They're close, wonder if they're gay" bs needs to stop. Not every close relationship needs a sexual under/overtone.

1. How would you react?

As long as it doesn't drastically change who they are and why we like them, I wouldn't care.

2. What questions would you ask them?

Nothing. They're comic book characters, silly.

3. Superman fans, would you still continue buying and collecting Superman comics and merchandises and wear your shirt with the Superman art/logo?

Yes. IMHO not doing such would be ignorant.

4. Batman fans, would you still continue buying and collecting Batman comics and merchandises and wear your shirt with the Batman art/logo?

Yes, IMHO not doing such would also be ignorant. "He's...gay? Oh man, guess I can't like that character anymore!" Pffft.

How about if you were chosen by DC to provide questions cos it and the answers will show up on the next issue?

One of my best friends is openly gay so there's no big deal, but I doubt that DC would allow it because of the backlash from less open-minded fans. Oh and because Apollo and Midnighter being to close to them anyway in apperance and such.

@Guardiandevil83: Apollo and Midnighter are more believable, too. They're written that way. I think the twenty questions thing is ridiculous and downright insulting, anyway.

True but is so how things would play. US Weekly and People would be all over it. Screw Rob/Kristen scandal now it's ''The Worlds Finest.....IN LOVE?!?!" ''DNA isn't the only thing Batman anal-yzes in his cave." Stuff like that.

@Guardiandevil83: It wouldn't bother me so much. Gossip magazines are full of hack journalists desperately trying to lure readers at any cost. I'd say the writing in certain comics speaks for itself, that to go beyond what is written is interpretation and wishful thinking. Beside all that, the sexual issues aren't addressed in comics as it is. I say leave it that way.

I dont think DC would ever allow that due to Superman's iconic relationship. But Im pretty sure that Batman would be the one getting it in the a$$. Cos Superman is the more masculine one. LOL

Batman's always depicted as a ladies man too. Both as Bruce Wayne and Batman. It wouldn't be suiting of the essence of each other's secret identity and character.

Yes, but Superman is less likely to be gay. Batman has a possibly of experimenting since he seems like those kinda guy that wouldnt mind, but realistically none would. DC wont allow.

I'm just saying, Superman would be the one screwing. lol.

1) Like someone said: Apollo and Midnighter are someone's "what if" about Bats and Super. 2) Nothing that comic characters "do" is surprising. I guess one could be surprised by what a writer chooses to "do". The characters themselves hardly have anything about them that would let you know they are the same person over time except the costume. They are a blank slate upon which to project. 3) Yes. I am ignoring your questions completely and just using numbers in front of my statements as a lark. 4) Perhaps 5) Maybe 6) It depends 7) We'll see 8) At times

Of all the characters you could've picked to ask about, and you choose the pair where we already have characters created explicitly to answer that question? And they're awesome?

You should've asked about Hal Jordan and Barry Allen or something.

I'd react by taking a big dump on the comic in which this was announced then burning it. Then sit in the shower crying for a few days, until the fan backlash and rage was so insanely massive that DC erased all existence of it ever happening from the face of the Earth.
