Oh, Batman, you rogue

You may know Batman as a dark vigilante or a goofy TV character, but you probably don't think of him as a skirt-chasing scoundrel. In Batman #153, dated February 1963, the Caped Crusader showed off his bad behavior.

While stranded on a strange world with his editorially mandated proof of heterosexuality, Batwoman, Bruce Wayne said sweet words when the pair were in dire straits.

Apparently, one follows such a declaration of Bat-love with the most dispassionate smooch in the history of snogging.

At least try to enjoy it, man.

Where was the worst of Batman's behavior? That came once the Bat-couple emerged from danger.

It's like Larry from Three's Company put on a cape and cowl. Real classy, Bats.

All this making out and freaking out takes place in Batman #153 by Bill Finger and Sheldon Moldoff, reprinted in Batman: The Greatest Stories Ever Told, Vol. 2.
