Catwoman. There is, after all, a reason we made her the Icon for Fetish Fuel.
This troper would be stunned if the early Batman Beyond episode "Blackout", which introduced the amorphous Inque, didn't create a couple of interesting thoughts in adolescent viewers when Inque bound Batman in her grasp, kissed him, and then forced herself down his throat.
This troper would just like to say that he was directed to a thread on the Web Forum Which Shall Not Be Named and was proven right.
This Troper admits that the scene where Inque kisses Batman then trails her finger under his chin while she walks away is pretty damned hot, despite the Orifice Invasion Squick. Admittedly, this has spurned a few one-sided Inque/Terry fetish fics from said Troper.
This troper has a bit of a more normal Terry McGinnis fetish: mainly when he wore Nightwing's mask in "Lost Soul" when he went to go fight the Batsuit being controlled by Vance. This troper would certainly not mind molesting the hell out of him with that mask (and nothing else) on.
This troper was more turned on by the Royal Flush Gang girl's black-and-white catsuit.
Jack Jack Jack. And he had knives. And snark.
This pageless (so far) Troper was aroused by the Genetic Splicers, especially of the runaway model with the very long white hair, and Chelsea's cat eyes. "Take a walk on the wild side" indeed...
To quote the villain of the episode, "[Dana] would look good in spots."
The final form of said villain, Dr. Cuvier, is one of the standout moments of the DCAU (and in all of Fetish Fuel). This troper doesn't see why some think it's Nightmare Fuel....
I think I developed a bit of a villain/insanity fetish from this show. Riddler, The Mad Hatter, hell, even the Joker were oddly attractive.
This troper was a Batman fangirl when younger, and she has the same villain/insanity fetish. I think we have a pattern here...
Thirded. It occurred to this troper, while watching Marvel/DC After Hours the first time through, that, "Hmm. I was scared of Batman and Superman as a kid. Didn't identify with them, didn't entirely like them. So why did I watch their shows again?" And then the Joker started talking, and it became painfully obvious. D'you know what it feels like to Squick yourself?
Wow. You guys just helped me figure out why I'm messed up.
Regarding the Mad Hatter, his debut episode featured him using his mind control technology on the woman he desired. The ostensible point was that making his beloved a mindless slave would be a hollow victory, but this (female) troper...came away with other ideas.
Harley and Ivy are practically the ultimate lesbianFetish Fuel duo. As Bruce Timm said in the commentary, "Two sexy girls in Halloween costumes" with a constant habit of lounging around in either underwear or those telltale "man-shirts."
I'm not even into those two, and even I was turned on by that shirt and panties scene.
And Ivy uses poison kisses as a weapon. Which seriously makes me wonder how she slipped Harley the anti-poison serum.
She injected it, with Harley crying out and going "I donwanna!" and "I hate shots!" the whole time. After it was over, she says "After livin' with Mr. J, you'd think I'd be used to a little pain!"
You're sick. I think I love you.
... No, she seriously did. Episode 56, "Harley & Ivy".
Oh, the poison kisses are the least of it...what about her introduction in Batman & Robin? Let's see: a glasses-wearingFiery RedheadHot Scientist comes back from the dead as an equally hot redheaded villainess with Clothing Damage and a voice like poisoned wine...and proceeds to effortlessly seduce and dominate a helpless male before kissing him deeply, smirking maliciously and stroking his face as he slowly dies? Seeing that movie as a kid probably had something to do with this troper's raging Dominatrix fetish and fondness for redheads. The "vine-bondage" later in the movie probably didn't hurt either...
It's been mentioned on this very wiki that in The Dark Knight, the Joker has Glasgow Smile scars. Y'know, the kind of scars that make this troper turn incredibly soft and fangirly, and stir some very squiggly feelings she can't explain. I'mvery conflicted...
It's not just you. The scars are hot. For that matter, so is the face paint.
This troper is fairly sure that the lip-licking launched at least a few fetishes, if not many...
Oh, and I almost forgot. Heath Ledger in a nurse uniform. And the facial scars and makeup. It's... very nice.
This troper already had a crossdressing fetish, but that scene made her squeal out loud in the theatre the first time she saw it. Not to mention it made her, upon arriving home afterward, frantically search for nurse!Joker fanart.
This troper's friend insists that the Joker is walking like he's wearing a thong in the nurse's uniform scenes. This troper appreciates a man who will go to that level of detail.
The scene where the Joker visits Harvey Dent, post face-burn. A few seconds into that scene, I thought "This scene will launch one hundred fandomsecrets and one thousand slashfics."
But I thought we mentioned the nurse uniform already! The only one of those thousand slashfics this troper has read managed to... um... make french-kissing a man with severe facial burns- you'll know what we mean, oh yes you will- seem hopelessly sexy.
The fact that Harvey was strapped to the bed at the time doesn't help...
Not to mention Batman yanking him up by his hair. Yum. This troper immediately leapt towards the nearest computer to find some Wayne/Crane slash.
You sure as hell weren't the only one. Let's face it- Christian Bale could throw Cillian around like a ragdoll if he wanted to in that movie... and that only makes it all the sweeter.
I sometimes wonder what could have happened if for Harvey Dent's role, they cast the actor that was rumored for some time: Jake Gyllenhaal. Yes, the other cowboy of Brokeback Mountain. And the actress playing Rachel is his sister.
To paraphrase certain Live Journal icons... "Hey, Rachel! Guess what? I did your brother!"
Now I want one of those icons. Badly.
I think Mad Magazine made a joke similar to that.
Harvey Dent? I had heard Gyllenhaal was originally considered for the role of Bruce Wayne before Bale was cast in Batman Begins. Which would've been awesome in somanyways.
All that and the constant references made to the Joker "enjoying being beaten up". Yum.
Hoo boy. I could watch that interrogation scene over and over...
Oh yeah- and Schiff- I almost forgot Schiff. As if the nurse uniform scenes weren't enough, Schiff's a rather pretty, sweaty schizophrenic in a police uniform. And all the near-naked, tied up ACTUAL police officers. Come to think of it, for someone with a uniform kink this movie could be pure gold. Knew it gave me one.
In one scene, Maggie Gyllenhaal's wearing black slacks, a white dress shirt with wide lapels, and a black vest. Pretty much all she needs now is a rapier. Or two guns.
For that matter, Batman Begins. For a movie containing large segments of Christian Bale half-naked, or dressed up like a bat being psychopathic and menacing, it's really saying something that what pushed this troper over the edge into panting-mess territory was the introduction of the Tumbler/Batmobile. To her complete surprise, as she is otherwise completely uninterested in vehicles.
Can we just say Christian frigging Bale? On that note, this troper found skinny!Bale (literally, weighing about 120 pounds) in The Machinist curiously intriguing... that, and he's designed to be basically 'well, if Trent Reznor's outsides looked like the inside of his head...' Poor Trevor. She's torn between wanting to injure him and wanting to feed him, both of which are probably fetishes of their own.
This troper will admit that she has a fantasy in which she removes the Batsuit in pieces (we've never seen him actually put it on or take it off) and takes the mask off last. Because the Batsuit and the prospect of Christian Bale (half-)naked are equally sexy.
This troper is all over that—but kinked the way she is, she'd have him leave the mask on.
I happen to adore Scarecrow, straitjacket and all.
Seconded! 'Course, I've liked Scarecrow since watching Super Friends reruns as a five year old in the 90s...
So, maybe this troper is the only one, but ... Commissioner Gordon? As played by Gary Oldman, who has rather nice eyes himself, y'know? Noble, hard-working, badass, one of the few decent men in the whole city, and entirely loyal to Batman ... The scene in which Batman threatens him with what Gordon thinks is a gun was ... particularly relevant to this troper's interests.
There's also barefoot-raver Joker, voiced by deep-voiced Kevin Michael Richardson, and the Penguin's "assistants", the Kabuki Twins, who are dressed up in skintight...shiny...things and wear kabuki masks over their faces. And have knives for hands. And originally appear in full-on geisha clothing before shedding it. And they're very flexible. Catwoman is arguably the least fetishistic villain on the show.
Joker's barefeet sooooooooooooo gave me my foot fetish. The sort of stagger he has when he walks a lot of the time really doesn't help matters either; especially the way he sort of swings his arms. Add in when he's wearing an unfastened straight jacket and... yeah.
Um, Ragdoll. (And hysterical giggles do it for this troper— so seeing Bruce infected with Joker Venom growing progressively more and more unstable... that man has a sexy, sexy laugh.)
This line in The Batman VS Dracula.The Joker: (after being given a bag of blood and drinking it) Batsy... you complete me.
Plus all the time the Joker spends covered in blood... oh, man.
Not mine personally, but I couldn't help thinking all the people who got off to the sexual tension between Batman and the Joker in The Dark Knight.
Dear god, yes.
The Interrogation Scene in particular, of course. Those sidelong glances...Batman's shaking with rage..."Look at you go!" has taken on a new meaning.
That movie made this troper realize how hard she swooned over Batman/Joker...
The TDK incarnation of the Joker. His voice, his scars, how he constantly licks his lips, all the Foe Yay with Batman, his various Hannibal Lectures...not to mention being Too Kinky To Torture. I never had a thing for Heath Ledger in other movies, but the Joker...wow.
Huntress: We've all imagined it, I can't believe you did it. [...]Black Canary: It was... kinda hot, really. Like kissing your principal while on detention.
The Animated Series had an episode with Catwoman tied up, gagged and on a conveyor belt. It was, er... one of my favourite episodes. Actually, it had a lot of episodes with bound female characters.
The '60s live-action television series was hardly devoid of fetish fuel. Batman, Robin, Batgirl and even the occasional civilian were frequently tied up and/or put in some sort of evil time-delay trap. (To say nothing of the costumes. Or the set designs.) One of the perilous situations Robin was put into by a villain involved him bound on a conveyor belt leading to a circular saw, with said villain taunting Batman by asking whether he wanted the Boy Wonder cut lengthwise or crosswise. (At least one viewer who saw this episode at a tender age misremembered the scene for years as showing poor Dick headed toward the saw feet-first, rather than head-first as it was actually filmed.)
In retrospect, this troper probably got his love of Foe Yay when he was pretty young, from a Batman comic. . . . involving the Joker. Not to mention how often the Joker would tie Batman up. . . .
In the Golden Age, and Pre-Comic Codes Batman series, there are panels showing Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson sharing a bed. In fact, Batman was cited as "subversive homosexual influence" on the comics by the man who crusaded for the Comics Code, and he published several testimonials by young gay men who were apparently quite turned-on by the Dynamic Duo and wanted to be in Robin's place.
Speaking of Golden Age Robin, the number of times Dick Grayson was creatively restrained, gagged, kidnapped...yeah.
Let us not forget Golden Age Batman issue #10, which featured Bruce pulling Dick out of bed in the dark of night, laying the boy over his lap, and spanking him while the pajama-clad boy writhed and cried out "Owoo!" This is how every crime-fighter celebrates his crime-fighting partner's birthday, right?
Poison Ivy can control plants with a thought, and men via a kiss or pheromones. Naughty Tentacles and Mind-Control Sex anyone?
Can't forget Ivy's occasional sidekick, Harley Quinn. Crazy Genki Girl in a red-and-black jester outfit, not to mention their subtext...
We did. Look up.
Then there's Stalked, the story from Detective Comics #823. Apparently, Ivy was into plant vore back in her day. Did we mention that's she's drawn in a very highly eroticized way... and, on each page, she's either almost completely naked or in an extremely tight outfit?
According to Ivy in the Hush storyline, no man or woman can resist her. This isn't exactly news, but she says this to a mind-controlled Catwoman.
In Batman: The Animated Series episode "Trial", she stares at district attorney Janet van Dorn and gives her a seductive smile. The shadow on her face makes her all more stalker-ish.
Later in that episode, as the villains drag Batman, Ivy and Harley drag Janet with them.
Vicki Vale's constant high-heel wearing and shoe-loss scenes in Batman (1989)- On a date with Bruce? The heels come off. Fleeing the Joker and minions? Heels come off. Climbing stairs with the Joker? Heels off.
Her first introduction were her legs on top of Knox's desk, complete with stockings and high-heels.
No one remembers the Harley Pie scene from "Beware the Creeper" or the nightie from "Mad Love"? for shame fellow tropers, for shame. After re-watching these episodes this troper has decided to stay in his bunk, for the rest of the evening.
Let's give this a little more; She slithers out of a giant banana creme pie, (apparently wearing nothing but the cream and the giant cherry as a hat!) singing "Hap-py Birth-Day Mister Jaaaaayyy." like Marilyn Monroe while *crawling into his lap* Not to mention just how... submissive she is... I think my BSDM fantasies started with dear Harley Quinn.
Let's not forget after Joker kicks her out her hyenas staff sniffing and licking her, if bestiality appeals.
Renee Montoya. Badass. Fair cop. Spicy Latina. Joined the force because of her late husband. Later discovers she's gay. And she later becomes The Question.
Batman Forever. Sugar and Spice? Leotard-clad borderline Axe Crazy Jim Carrey? Bat-nipples? C'mon, someone has to like that movie. Then there's the "Returns" Catwoman, The "Batman and Robin" Ivy...
You forgot Nicole Kidman chained up while lying on Riddler's couch, the camera lingering on her nylon-clad legs as she struggles to escape... Quick! To the Bat-Bunk!!!.
Bane; he's a big dude in a cross between a luchador costume and a gimp outfit. During Nightfall, he was going around hiring six prostitutes at once. And they left him unsatisfied.
This troper enjoyed Bane's episode in The Animated Series for one reason: Candice, Bane's female assistant, jumps into a pool to fight with Robin, but not before taking off her shoes first. She is in business entire and yet still goes into the water to wrestle a superhero, grunting and showing her bare feet... and getting humiliatingly the lower hand, so she runs away, ashamed, while dripping water.
In an episode of Batman The Brave And The Bold, a ditzy female superheroine offers Bats a seat... Which turns out to be her, shapeshifted into a chair. Her face was the seat. Sadly Batman declined. This troper will be in her bunk.
I will never forgive this cartoon for making me realize I have sexual thoughts about a ripped guy in a revealing red costume, with a cute hairdo and stretchy powers, completely whipped by his wife and with Tom Kenny's voice... oh, what the hell am I talking about. I've already forgiven it and enjoying every minute of Plastic Man screentime.
Sure, Catwoman's been mentioned several times, but no one's mentioned Julie Newmar's Catwoman in the old Adam West Batman? In addition to cat ears, a black catsuit, and high heeled boots, there was a two-part episode in which she hypnotized Robin and (although he was actually faking it) Batman. And even then, Batman sprays her with some Bat-Knockout-Gas, so he can drive her to the Batcave without her knowing its location, and she doesn't wake up again until he sprays her with Anti-Bat-Knockout-Gas. Actually, if she'd gotten tied up once, I could probably blame that Catwoman for everything.
It wasn't so bad with the tables turned, either. This troper has fond memories of watching "The Cat's Meow", where Catwoman spent an entire episode stealing men's voices to turn them into helpless mutes. And it ended with her tying up Batman and Robin in her lair and trying to turn them into mindless "love slaves" with her Chinese Water Torture. I was about five the first time I saw that, and I couldn't understand why I'd suddenly stopped rooting for Batman...
Ah, Julie Newmar. Such lovely memories. I sometimes found myself wondering, though, was that actually a garment she was wearing? Or was it body paint? In more than one scene her nipples are VERY noticeably erect, and she seems to me to display a bit more jiggle than one would expect from someone with fabric between her and the viewer, however sheer. It's been many years since I saw it, though.
Oh, Julie... She may not have had the curviest figure or the most stripperiffic outfit, but no Catwoman actress has ever managed to top that cat-like elegance that she brought to the role. The woman was practically Audrey Hepburn in a black catsuit. Maybe a dose of Bettie Page.
As far as I know, she's also the only Catwoman actress who's ever posed nude in Playboy (and she did it in 1968, when pin-up girls still had class). I'm sure that counts for something.
No mention for Talia Ah Ghul?!
This troper remembers her brother going GAGA over Talia every time she appeared in Batman TAS. Specially when she'd be in "form-fitted" outfits, plus her hair....GEEZ! HE'D NEVER SHUT UP ABOUT HER SEXY HAIR!
Arkham City lampshades this not just with the leather outfit she wears, but one shot specifically on her chest. Kill her father and she rules by your side, Batman's an idiot for rejecting the offer.
Not no mention all those long tracking shots on her shapely butt when you're following her into the League's lair to take the potion. Between all the butt shots of her and Catwoman, they might as well call the game Batman: Ass-cam City.
She's dress like a harem girl in the Batman: The Animated Series 2-part episode "The Demon's Quest". She's even barefoot.
Roxy Rocket...go watch the episode, "Ultimate Thrill", of Batman TAS now on youtube with her in it! She's no Poison Ivy, but she was walking (flipping, jumping, adrenaline-loving) piece of fanservice!
At one point in the comics, Tim Drake (Robin #3) is sent undercover in a hospital. He is dressed as a female intern, and looks a bit like Jennifer Garner in scrubs. After being hit on by an older guy, he complains that Alfred made the fake breasts too big because people keep hitting on him. Alfred assures Tim that the breasts are large enough to get "her" preferential treatment, but not large enough to be unforgettable. Yes, Batman is listening to this entire conversation.
Calendar Girl from The New Animated Series does strange things for this normally gay troper. It's something about the skin-tight pvc catsuit/miniskirt combo and white porcelain mask she wears. (The fact that she has at least four different versions of this costume, in season-appropriate colours - with accessories!! - makes the gay appeal a little more understandable.)
Not to mention that she's beautiful under that mask. But sadly, all she sees are the tiny flaws from her aging.
From Batman: Confidential, the "The Cat and the Bat" story combined this troper's love for Barbara Gordon with his fetish for non-villainous Full Frontal Assault. He gets dizzy just thinking about it.
Would anyone mind giving some context to this panel◊ from Batman and Robin Adventures? Because anything that contains shirtless B:TAS Robin (I) can only be good.
Ivy brainwashed him to work for her with a 'patented magic kiss' to commit crimes and be her slave. They ended up ignoring Harley, who got so fed up she gave Robin the antidote to the kiss with drugged lemonade.
One of the first episodes of the New Batman Adventures, "Holiday Knights" featured Renee Montoya in a Christmas elf get up. Not too shabby, especially since they got way with making her skirt so short. Also (because I know someone will flail me if I don't mention) Babs in the same vignette, hiding in a mall as she changed into Batgirl.
Dear God, The New Teen Titans 21 and 22. Not only is the entire team knocked out, we have Robin getting whipped and beamed by the Church of Blood. Then he's shirtless and covered ingreen slime. Then Raven tells him to "arouse Wallace" Subtlety went out the window.
Batman: Arkham City has Catwoman tied up and suspended upside in a room with 48 of Two Face's men. Selina and Two Face's Foe Yay in that scene aside, let's not beat around the bush here: gangbang (Batman getting distracted and joining in, cheesy porno style would be appreciated, too).
Catwoman also happens to be playable in Arkham City. Some of her moves certainly reveal she's living up to her status as the patron goddess of Fetish Fuel. Case in point: one of her takedowns involves frenching her opponent and letting him cop a feel.
Out of all the Enemy Chatter in that game, one line stands out for me: when one of the thugs is leching out over Catwoman, and says "She could do whatever she wants to me...you wouldn't see me complaining!" Think about that for a second: you're in a city-sized Maximum Security Prison filled with hardened, gun-wielding murderers and rapists; but when they obsess over Catwoman, it's "She can do whatever she wants to me", not "I'd do so many things to her". Yep, that's right. Even musclebound Arkham inmates want to submit to Catwoman. If you ever doubted that Selina's a natural Dominatrix, there's your proof.
This troper has a few from different versions of Batman. In Batman TAS, there's The Riddler, who is a smart, cute red-haired smug snake in a suit. There's also The Mad Hatter, who is now a sweet and kinda cute blond desesperately in love with a girl... and can mind-control people. In The Batman, there's Killer Croc, who's more reptile-like, yet more human and smart than any of his others incarnations and he have a nice accent. There's also Penguin, who is younger, cuter, more badass and more funny than any of his other incarnations. Not to mention his awesome squacking laugh... Heck, he even managed to handcuff Batman and Catwoman to each other in one episode!
Is this Troper the only one who kinda wished Selina Kyle didn't get turned back to normal after the Batman TAS episode Tyger, Tyger?
Batman: Arkham City is even more fetish-worthy than Arkham Asylum. Harley has a new, even sexier dress, Poison Ivy returns and Catwoman co-stars the game in DLC with her generous clevage, but this Troper's favourite is definedly Two-Face. That goddamn voice...and his unburned side is looking really fine...
And that's not even mentioning Talia's magnificent assets. Or the Riddler's sexy voice...
The Arkham City version of Riddler in general pushes so, so many buttons. The voice, the hat, the glasses, the disheveled suit with sleeves rolled up, the brilliant-frustrated-insane-genius intensity... the eyes... mmm.
Seconded all the way. Will also add the fingerless gloves to the list.
Harley Quinn gets yet another makeover in her DLC. It's certainly the hottest of the lot. Throw in a huge shot of Woobie and you almost want her to win.
When this troper first heard that Robin would be in Arkham City, she expected to see a scrawny kid, like in the TV shows and such. Then he showed up, and WOW. That hood/cape, the new outfit, the shaved head (which she doesn't usually find attractive, but, it sort of works for him, in a strange way) he's obviously a bit more muscular than some of his previous incarnations (he cage-fights), his fighting style, and that voice... did I mention that he's a bit sarcastic? Apparently, he also has dark hair and blue eyes.
TDK version of Bane, played by Tom Hardy... Oh god... I missed many parts of the movie because I was too busy staring at him, listening to his voice and drooling in my popcorn...
Seconded. That voice (couldn't you just watch the opening over and over again for affablyevil!Bane?), and the Genius Bruiser-ness, and his choice of attire, and his motives . . . let's just say it's not a coincidence this troper figured out he was bisexual shortly after seeing that movie.
Batman: The Animated Series episode "Eternal Youth" begins with a rich fat lady (Mrs. Thomas) in a bath robe and barefoot running. Then being chased by Poison Ivy. A close-up of the Mrs. Thomas's feet as she's running, which we see she's not as fast as Poison Ivy who's gaining. And also the only one panting in breath, due to her weight. It sounds like she was gonna call Poison Ivy a "wicked evil bitch". After becoming petrified by Ivy's spray, we can imagine Ivy disrobing her in the middle of the woods. Later, Ivy sat on top of a completely tree-fied Mrs. Thomas's butt (or some other rich fat lady).
Okay, even knowing she's only fifteen, I can't help having dirty thoughts for Gotham's "Catwoman".
Catwoman and Batgirl team up in the Batman: TAS episode "Batgirl Returns". Catwoman takes a liking into Batgirl and proposes they team up to find the real culprit. When Batgirl agrees on the condition of arresting Catwoman if she's lying, Catwoman slowly smiles and her eyes widen a little. Also, Batgirl sits behind Catwoman with her arms around her while riding on a motorcycle.
