Bruce Wayne is gonna have to put a ring on it now whether he wants to or not! Batman and Catwoman are having a baby!
Tom King released new art for an upcoming story featuring Batman and Catwoman, and it features the two heroes locked in a warm embrace. However, the biggest takeaway from the art by Mikel Janin and Jordie Bellaire is a pregnant Selina Kyle.
In King’s 85-issue run on Batman, drawn by many artists, Batman and Catwoman nearly got married, and eventually resolved to stay together without a formal commitment.
Now the image above is from the upcoming Batman/Catwoman series coming out soon. So it’s too early to say for sure if this is a legit thing that will actually happen or perhaps some kind of dream sequence or alternate universe.
The idea of a Bat/Cat kid isn’t new – in the 1950s, the pair married and had a daughter named Helena Wayne, who went on to become Huntress, who was a central character in DC’s original longrunning Earth-2 continuity. That was later retconned, but in 2006 after Infinite Crisis Catwoman was revealed to have given birth to a daughter – also named Helena. Batman was teased to be that child’s father as well, but in the storyline it was later said to be Sam Bradley Jr.’s. That child was, again, retconned out during 2011’s “New 52.”
