Relax While She Strokes Your Head Tuesday!

Today's uncomfortable moments are brought to you by Detective Comics #152:

Vicki Vale was Batman's first real love interest. She had no boundaries:

Lady, Robin is right there, and you know it. I think she's getting some kind of weird exhibitionist enjoyment from having the kid watch. I'm calling Child Protective Services.

Vicki was also apparently a rather.... physically demonstrative woman. Here we see her doing the exact same thing for Bruce Wayne. Be mindful that at this point, she doesn't know Bruce is Batman:

Vicki, you hussy! And Dick Grayson is right there! This is some sort of serial weirdo thing. Pretty women get away with all kind of crap. You know they do.

This Robotman is not the same character from The Doom Patrol, but he had his share of weird moments:

And not to mention:

No, it doesn't even tickle. But maybe if you aimed a little lower.

Unless Robotman is built like a Ken doll. That's a great mystery of comics that no one ever really explored. There's probably a good reason.

See you tomorrow!

Neither the Golden Age or Silver Age Robotmen were "fully functional" (as Gene Roddenberry described STtNG's android, Data.)
But since they were robots and not androids, it made sense.
On the other hand, androids like The Vision and Golden Age Human Torch apparently DID have ALL the body parts of a human, just made from artificial material. (The Vision married Wanda, the Scarlet Witch, and the GA Torch, as Jim Hammond, was involved with human women...)
And Data did "get busy" with Tasha Yar... ;-)

So, um, when Batman gets a head injury, the doctor puts the bandages OVER his cowl?

I didn't like Vicki at all in Batman the 1989 movie... she was such a airhead who jumped into danger headfirst just for the hell of it, and sent half the time being a screaming damsel in distress.
although looking at those comic panels, I suppose it could had been worse...

Hi Adam,
Your post on Vicki moved me to do my own mini-post on the character, where I call her not just manipulative but "sadistic:"
