Since it was Nicola Scott’s art from Wonder Woman: Blackest Night that got us all hopped up to begin with, it’s only appropriate to include this pop art homage to one of her loveliest panels from that series. Remember, back in WW:BN, we learned that Diana had a deep, if unspoken, romantic connection with Batman. Not unrequited, just unspoken — and mutual. I mean, look at this, people! There is so much genuine tenderness going on here, and Bruce even took off his damn cowl to gaze at Diana with just the slightest smile. Diana is a peerless warrior, but in this picture, she’s simply a woman who is (dare I say it?) in love. This quietly intimate moment gave me goosebumps.
Dammit, DC! You’re breaking my heart.
