Batman Expresses His Views on Feminism

Bruce expresses his complex and well-reasoned views on feminism to Diana.



Wonder Woman subsequently expresses her complex and well-reasoned views on Batman by knocking him out, locking him in a capsule, and shooting him out into space.



The option of "I disagree, and therefore will shoot you out into space" should, I believe, be an option is more types of philosophical debates.

You talk as if modern philosophers hadn't already considered and rejected that option. I think they have learned from World War Hulk that shooting people out into space doesn't work as intended.

That's what people can win at Girl-Wonder Bingo! A Free Trip To Spaaaaaaace!

It's perfect!

Please tell me Bruce had his brains addled in this comic, though, since a playboy does not neccessarily a chauvinist make. (You hear that, Frank Miller?)

Martin,

True, Planet Hulk is another example of this type of philosophical dialog. I just think it should be used on more of a day-to-day basis, not just for special occassions.

zhinxy,

Sorry, it was right-minded Bruce. The page is actually from "A League of One," which I think was only published in graphic novel form.

Wonder Woman has received knowledge that the Justice League will all die fighting a dragon, so she has to dispatch everyone else temporarily, so that she can fight the dragon alone, and then only she would die.

The page is Wonder Woman dispatching Batman so that he will be temporarily out of the picture for the fight. Batman is not mind controlled or anything other than angry at Diana for deciding on her own to disable the entire League.

Wasn't Bruce trying to make Diana angry to eke out any advantage he could out of the lamentable fact that he was fighting Wonder Woman?!

I mean, it isn't like he had Amazonian Kryptonite in his belt.

The book was a Wonder Woman showcase, after all.
