In the world of superheroes Batman is arguably the most famous. There is something about his brooding countenance, and the fact that he is powerful and vulnerable all at once, that makes him extremely appealing to fans.
There is, however, another group of people that get into that whole “powerful, brooding and vulnerable” thing in a really big way. That’s right, I’m talking about the ladies. Women simply can’t resist a guy that is complicated, and Batman has that going on in a big way. In fact, he pretty much has anything a woman wants. Under his true identity as Bruce Wayne, he is extremely rich and he is good looking. Then, as Batman, he is powerful and has that bit of danger that women can’t resist, even though they pretend that they can. In fact the only turn off about Batman to a woman would be that totally creepy relationship he has with his “ward” Dick Grayson, also known as Robin. Let’s be honest, most women would see that and run the other way.
Still through the years Batman has gotten a lot of tail, although he always managed to screw things up, or sometimes, the ladies were killed. Such a drag. While we know for a fact he actually did the deed with most of these women, others were just implied, and for the sake of this list we are counting them anyway. Why? Because Batman is a grown man, and that’s what grown men do. Here are the 15 hottest women that Batman has slept with.
Bekka is a New God of Genesis, and made her first appearance in a comic around 1985. Part of her powers as a God is being the God of love, so basically she is Cupid. Batman falls under her spell, but apparently whenever Bekka put someone under a spell so they could not resist her, it meant that she could not resist the other person either. So in other words, it is pretty much the worst power ever. What is the point of making someone fall under your power if you fall under their power too? Regardless, this all meant that Batman and Bekka did the deed a few times, and also there is no doubt that Bekka is rather hot, so she belongs on this list. I wish I could find a chick as hot as Bekka to put a spell on me.
14. Black Canary
You may remember Black Canary from All Star Batman and Robin; if you don’t, I can’t say that I blame you, it certainly was not the best Batman comic ever. At one point Batman is possibly slaughtering a bunch of punks by starting a fire on the docks. Black Canary shows up and watches for a bit, then gets totally turned on by what she sees. The two of them end up doing it in an alley, and they leave their costumes on because they say that it is better that way. Now I am all for chicks that are into some weird stuff, but I have to say that normally when a relationship starts this way, it does not end with the woman meeting the parents and wedding bells. This relationship was no exception- it did not last long.
13. Rachel Dawes
Rachel Dawes is purely a product of the Batman movies, and never appeared in any of the comics. She first came to life as part of the Dark Knight Trilogy. Rachel is the childhood love of Bruce Wayne and is one of the only people that gets what he is really about. Of course, this turns into a huge problem; it kind of has to right? Bruce loves her but she doesn’t know he is Batman. Oh, the problems of a superhero. All you are hiding from your wife is that you get turned on watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer; can you imagine trying to hide a secret as big as this? Rachel dies in The Dark Knight, which of course makes all of Batman’s worrying a moot point. You know, because she’s dead and everything.
12. Jezebel Jet
Jezebel Jet was one of Batman’s more intense lovers, and their relationship has an ending that was rather intense as well. She and Batman had a lot in common. She was also quite rich and had lost her parents when she was a child- she even had a secret identity, just like Batman. The only problem was that it turned out her secret identity was as an agent of the Black Glove Association, and she was up to no good when it came to Bruce Wayne and Batman. Not to worry though, before she got too far in her plan, another villain decapitated her. Isn’t that always the worst? You meet a new girl and things seem to be going great, then one day you go to pick her up for a date and someone has cut her head off. I hate it when that happens.
11. Zatanna Zatara
What could be hotter than a gorgeous superhero dressed up as a magician? Okay, lots of things, but still Zatanna was pretty darn hot. Zatanna first appeared in Hawkman in 1964 and was a pretty powerful sorceress who could do all sorts of things- except getting Batman to fall for her, apparently. This is one where we are going to have to guess whether they actually did it or not, but I still say they did. Zatanna is totally hot and was throwing herself at Batman all the time. In return Batman said that he liked her but that he “cared too much about her” to get seriously involved. We all know what that means. That is guy code for “friends with benefits.” Basically Batman liked Zatanna enough to have some fun, but not enough to put a ring on it.
10. Lois Lane
Really Batman? Of all the women in the world that you could have gone for you had to go for the one woman who really messed up Superman’s head? That is going totally against the bro code, but yeah, he did it. Bruce Wayne and Lois Lane had a nice little romance going until Batman decided to tell her that he had a secret identity as a super hero. When she found that out she dumped him, as she was burnt out from being with Superman. This must have been really confusing for her; like every guy she dates has a secret identity as a crime fighter. I imagine the next guy she chose was totally overweight or something, just so she could be sure that there was no secret superhero hiding inside.
Batman kind of broke type here when he went out with Nocturna. Who knew that he would have a bit of a thing for a goth type? Although I guess when you are named after a bat, you probably don’t have that big of a problem with a woman that looks like a vampire. Nocturna used to be a villain but seemed to be willing to give that all up for a relationship with Batman. As far as he went, it seemed like he could pretty much care less about all of that villain stuff, because she was so hot. Things were moving along pretty fast and she was even talking about marriage, but one of her exes flipped out and wanted her dead which seemed to chill her and Batman out a bit. I am sure that kind of thing gets old after a while.
8. Wonder Woman
It totally makes sense that a superhero would go out with a superheroine, they understand each other and don’t have to deal with the whole secret thing. But with that said, I have to admit I am not sure about this one. As far as they ever got, officially, was sharing a kiss, but I simply cannot imagine it going farther. Why? Well, because Wonder Woman is just so ridiculously hot. It does not matter if it is Lynda Carter, Gal Gadot, or an animated Wonder Woman- she is probably the hottest super heroine ever. So Batman, do us all a favor will you? Even if nothing ever happened beyond that kiss, just pretend something went farther. We don’t want details, don’t worry, that would ruin the whole thing.
7. Sasha Bordeaux
I know a lot of you guys don’t like women with short hair. Well, I am here to tell you that you are wrong about that. Short hair on the right woman looks amazing. Just ask Batman; he fell hard for Sasha Bordeaux, who was hired to be his bodyguard. Now you know you have some pretty good game if a superhero hires you to protect them. She was into him well before he was into her, but eventually he came around. I guess having a super-hot woman as your security guard that is also in love with you tends to have that effect after a while. Like all of his relationships though, this one fizzled out, in large part because of all the day to day danger that they faced. One can imagine that must get tiring.
6. Julie Madison
Most of you know Julie Madison from the movie Batman and Robin, but a lot of you probably do not know her history with Bruce Wayne. Julie has actually been around for a long time now; her first appearance came in 1939, which makes her basically his first love. It didn’t work out though, shocker, right? It turns out that she got tired of Bruce Wayne taking off all the time and then not being able to explain where he was. When you think of it, that would probably be a huge problem. One minute you are on the couch watching the Seahawks and Patriots, and next thing that your wife knows you are gone for like three days, then come back like nothing happened with a bunch of blood dripping from your neck. That’s just not helpful to having a long-term relationship.
5. Vicki Vale
Good old Vicki Vale. To a lot of people that are fans of Batman she is his first known love interest. She first appeared way back in the ’50s and was a reporter for the Gotham Gazette and was a rather obvious counterpart to Lois Lane and her role with Superman. She appeared in many comic books and also was in the very first Batman movie where she was played by Kim Basinger (Batman was play by Michael Keaton). While they hung out together for a long time, they never got all that serious, once again because of the whole secrecy thing. It seems like Batman’s love life is full of women that either don’t get him and are good for him, or women that do get him and are bad for him. Just like the rest of us.
4. Andrea Beaumont
Andrea is the masked alter ego for the Phantasm. She appeared in the animated movie Batman: Mark of the Phantasm, as a woman who was once engaged to Batman. Of course right as they are about to marry, criminals murder her father, which has to be a huge buzzkill for a relationship. Another thing that has to be a pretty big buzzkill is that Andrea looks totally freaky as The Phantasm. I mean, come on, how could you want to do the deed with someone after you saw them dressed like that? The whole thing is kind of the opposite of sexy. Either way all of this took its toll and the two never married, leaving Bruce Wayne and Batman alone – at least until the next gal came along.
3. Talia Al Ghul
Talia and Batman have a kind of odd relationship. According to Son of Batman she even admitted to drugging him and having sex with him when he was knocked out to have his child and also married him without his consent. Hey, let’s face it, we all have had a girl like Talia at one point in our life, and if we were lucky we got out of it without having to file a restraining order. Batman keeps coming back to her no matter how bad things get, though. This is one of those age old questions, not just for Batman, but for the rest of us guys- why do we always get so turned on by crazy girls? Although I guess I should not speak for all of us, I should just speak for me. And Batman, of course.
2. Silver St. Cloud
Silver St. Cloud was yet another woman in Batman’s life that said she could not take him being Batman and broke up with him. She came back to him though, and said she loved him too much to let him go. After a while Batman decided he might even stop being a superhero and settle down with Silver, but instead a villain killed her. This is kind of the whole thing about these women; they are all like “Oh no Batman, the whole thing is too dangerous” and he is all “Oh come on baby, knock it off.” Then they come back with “Okay, you are right, sorry baby” and then they get killed. Hey Batman, here is a pro tip- when your girlfriend breaks up with you because you are Batman, she is right! Let her go.
For every guy there is always one woman that stands above all of the others and of course at the top of any list such as this there has to be Catwoman. Batman has had such a long and complicated relationship with her she just has to sit at the top. Oh, and she is also super hot. Their relationship constantly shifts and changes. At times she is a villain, at other times such as in the movie The Dark Knight Rises, they stop being superheroes and run away together. In some of the comics they are shown to be married and even have children together. No matter how you slice it, Batman’s relationship with Catwoman is very long and complicated, which is why she deserves to be at the top of this list. Oh yeah, and she is also super hot. Wait, did I mention that already?
