On a Fandom Meme–Batman

Kathy, in response to the fandom meme, asked for Batman. Here goes!

  1. The first character I first fell in love with
    Batman, obviously.
  2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
    Scarface. The first time I encountered Scarface in the comics, I thought this was perhaps the most pathetic excuse for a villain, ever. But then, to see that a major crime boss in Gotham City is a talking ventriloquist dummy, that’s hella cool, people. 🙂
  3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
    Two-Face. I recognize that there have been some great stories told with Two-Face–Faces and The Long Halloween among others–but I’ve no great affection for the character.
  4. The character I love that everyone else hates
    Jean-Paul Valley, also known as Azrael and, for a time, the replacement Batman. I liked the character, I think he could have worked as Batman on a permanent basis, and the really intriguing thing would have been if Bruce Wayne, confined to a wheelchair, had been the brains behind the brawn of Valley, prefiguring Batman Beyond. That would have been interesting, but perhaps it would have redefined what Batman was too much.
  5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
    Tim Drake, the third Robin. I blame it on over-exposure.
  6. The character I would shag anytime
    Either the Huntress or the Barbara Gordon Batgirl. I can’t decide.
  7. The character I’d want to be like
    Dick Grayson.
  8. The character I’d slap
    The person who needs a good slap of sense is Bruce Wayne, but you won’t see me trying to deliver it, oh no.
  9. A pairing that I love
    Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.
  10. A pairing that I despise
    Some may find this curious, but I don’t like the Dick Grason/Barbara Gordon pairing. It doesn’t work for me.
