This is actually - at least these days - such a Dick thing to do. He’d walk around in Crime Alley in his crime-fighting gear and be cool. Guess who he learned that from, eh? Bruce hasn’t always been inapproachable and bitter.
I really don’t know how to feel about this. On the one hand, YAY ROSE! IN SMALLVILLE! WRITTEN BY BQM!
On the other hand… WTF SHE’S A FUCKING VILLAIN? AGAIN?! SON OF A BITCH.
I am… conflicted.

A Few Interesting Facts About the Marstons:
William Moulton Marston, creator and writer of the DC’s Wonder Woman, was an avid feminist who used his wife, Elizabeth Holloway Marston, and lover/partner (who was engaged in a polyamorous relationship with Marston and his wife), Olive Byrne, as inspiration for the famous Amazonian comic book character.
Marston often cited these two women as the source of great influence in his writings.
Upon his death in 1947, Marston’s wife financially supported all four of his children (two of which were Byrne’s), and Byrne herself until her death in 1980s, by continuing her research in psychology and working as a lecturer at several universities.
Martston and Elizabeth are well-known for their involvement in the study and development of the systolic blood-pressure test, which was a method employed to detect deception (the polygraph). From this psychological work, Marston had been convinced that women were more honest and reliable than men and could work faster and more accurately. This later inspired him to create the ‘Lasso of Truth’, one of Wonder Woman’s main crime-fighting weapons.

Batman: Li’l Gotham #6 previews.
may contain spoilers.
Publisher: DC Comics.
Release Date: Wed, September 11th, 2013
Head over to Li’l Gotham for Mother’s Day Mania as Damian and Colin search for the true meaning of family, friendship and how many different ways Alfred can top a pizza. And no one prepares for Father’s Day Fun like Gotham City’s Bat-Family. But when the Gordons have to share a table with the al Ghuls, things really get interesting!
The one Bat book everyone should read. It has Alive!Damien and Existing!Colin/Abuse, Nightwing in blue! and every now and again a cameo by Steph and Cass.
I’m quite surprised DC is allowing this

I ask you, how could you NOT trust that face? :)
