Happy Almost Valentine’s Day

For your romantic inspiration, some tender moments from Justice League.

This is, of course, the real reason why I watch the shows of the DC Animated Universe — it’s all the hot, hot man/woman, woman/alien, man/mythological figure, man/scientific experiment, man/winged alien, woman/alien, psychopath/psychopath, woman/scientific experiment, alien/robot, martian/martian, man/psychopath, mythological figure/martian, alien/winged alien, woman/mythological figure love going on.

As my son Sam (5) exclaimed after one episode of Justice League: “Everybody on this show is in love!  I thought this show was supposed to be serious!” hit counter html code

    What, no Harley & Ivy?

    • Todd says:

      All the pictures I found of them were all of Ivy being pissed off and Harley pulling an “Ulp!” face. I’m not sure they have any true romantic moments.

    What, no Question/Huntress? They’re the only straight pairing I like!

    • Todd says:

      They tend to express themselves through action — I couldn’t find any shots of them staring meaningfully into each others’ eyes. Maybe because Question doesn’t have any.

    Awww, the Joker and Harley one is so cute! Where’s it from?

    Ah romance…

    I have a particular soft spot for Supergirl and Brainiac 5. It’s rather Shakespearean.

    • Todd says:

      There was a play purported to be “the lost Shakespeare” called The Tragicall History of Supergirl and Brainiac V in the Thirty-First Century Anno Domeni, but it turned out to be a forgery.

    Ah, life is so simple (relatively) when you’re five, isn’t it?

    Actually, I guess that’s a perennial curse of life — you never realize how good anything is until it’s gone.

    Harley Quinn and the Joker were amazing on Batman:the animated series. Possibly the best cartoon couple of all time, if I may be so bold.

    One of the funniest moments in B:TAS was when Harley kissed Batman in Harley’s Holiday.

    Where’s the hot man/man love?

    Hey, awesome, it seems JLU has more romantic pairings than regular comics. Which is awesome, because really, all those people hanging around on the moon and whatnot, and very, very few romantic relationships. Like, WHAT are they doing with their time?

    • Todd says:

      John Stewart seems to get around the most in the DCAU; he’s had explicit, onscreen affairs with Hawkgirl and Vixen. Batman has a long-simmering romance with Wonder Woman (which he denies given every opportunity) while Zatanna still carries a torch from a fling in the past. Superman is pretty much promised to Lois Lane, although he still thinks about Lana Lang from back when he was Superboy. The Flash flirts a lot and, it is implied, gets a lot of action. Martian Manhunter is the solemn widower, still aching for the carnal embrace of his green, pointy-headed wife. Green Arrow joined the league solely to pursue the fishnets of Black Canary, a union they seem to pursue passionately in between shootouts and motorcycle chases, like Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw in The Getaway. And, as noted above, Question and Huntress have some kind of antagonistic love thing going.
