Bat-Undressing.

“Bruce? Why are you taking your clothes off in my bedroom? Why are you giving me that look?”

Go to your Happy Place, Dick.

    Dialog before editorial interference:

    Dick: Oh, it’s you Bruce! Have a good time?
    Bruce: Not tonight, but(t).
    Dick: Did anything happen?
    Bruce: From what I’ve seen it looks like something will…SOON!
    Dick: Not another spanking! Please anything but that.

    Bruce (Leering down at his crotch): From what I’ve seen it looks like something will…SOON!

    Absolutely the funniest caption you’ve had yet.

    And that is why mothers threw your comic book collection away when you went to college.

  • Paradox

    Y’know, sometimes I think Wertham may have had a point…

  • Powers

    With names like “Bruce” and “Dick” it had to happen.

    Seen this panel plenty of times, but it never fails to amuse me. Maybe we did use to live in a more innocent time, because these days, there’s obviously something wrong with this picture.

    It doesn’t matter how innocent a time you lived in, there is no logicial reason a millionare would go into his young ward’s room to disrobe. Yeah, if they were living in a two room shack, a case can be made…but this was just lazy writing, a quick shorthand to let the reader know that Batman was out alone all night while Robin was sleeping.

  • sackett

    Ok….I guess a case CAN be made that Bruce was telling Robin goodnight before going out on the town, and letting him know there will be ACTION tomorrow night.

    But still….bleah

    Well… the reason Bruce is getting undressed is cuz it’s THEIR room. That’s right…they actually slept in the same room (seperate beds tho). A HUGE arse mansion and they shared a room… :P

  • HellRazor

    Separate beds? No, Bruce just likes those tiny boy-sized beds. Less room for Dick to squirm away from him.

  • Phil

    This may be perhaps the best panel I’ve seen since I started frequenting this site. Hi-larious. Kudos are given.

  • Sarah

    There’s a panel people often cite as showing Bruce and Dick sharing a bed (I spent such a long time in the ‘Seduction of the Innocent’ section of Superdickery tracking this down): http://www.superdickery.com/seduction/73.html
    However, if you look carefully at the bedheads, you can see the wallpaper between them – they’re sleeping in twin beds, albeit very close together. Reach out and snuggle close together, one might say.
    That bright yellow is a terrible colour for bedroom wallpaper, and really not a shade I can see Bruce picking out.
