No good can come from succumbing to ‘Bat Temptation’

Except for you, of course, because you’d have this very funny print hanging on your wall (see the full image below). The artist is DnaPna and you can buy his “Bat Temptation” piece in a variety of formats at society6.

I feel like I should point out that there are a couple of ways of reading this scene. It’s either weird and creepy or playful and funny, depending on how sexual you think it is. I choose to read it as a playful moment between friendly rivals. Batman’s caught Catwoman sneaking into a high-rise and is about to scare the crap out of her. Whatever his intentions though, he should reconsider because – whether from anger or simple surprise – she’s about to put a stiletto heel between his ribs.



The beads of sweat on the cowl, and pursing of the lips leads me to a *ahem* different interpretation than yours Mike.

Yeah, I can see what you’re saying. I think you can interpret the lips a couple of different ways, but the more I think about it, the more difficult it is to argue with the sweat. I also may have misread the eyebrow as a mischievous eye.

My reading could have been more rationalization than rational.
