Alone, in front of a roaring fire, far away from any other human. They look at each other passionately and even move in for a kiss, almost touching lips. This is the scenario in the comic book Batman issue 39, volume 3. But how did this come to be, and how did circumstances come to be that Batman and Wonder Woman could have slept together?

It starts with Wonder Woman lighting up The Bat Signal on the roof of The Gotham City Police Department. Commissioner Gordon races to the rooftop and is surprised to see Diana there. She says that she wishes to speak with Batman alone. Batman asks her why she didn’t use the Justice League communicator. She said that she thought the signal would be more fun. (Perhaps being flirtatious?) She says that the two of them promised someone named The Gentle Man, who is from another realm or dimension or something, a chance to rest and stop fighting monsters for one day while they fill in.

Later after fighting monsters, Wonder Woman is washing blood from her hands in a stream. She is talking about Batman’s girlfriend Catwoman, and says that he must miss her, and loves her and will marry her. And yet there he is without Catwoman, but with Wonder Woman. When she says this to him, she is seductively bathing her hair underneath a waterfall.

Wonder Woman seducing Batman

Since time moves as a difference pace in the realm Batman and Wonder Woman are in, an hour in Earth time winds up being ten years where they are. Wonder Woman points out that since the hordes of monsters are everlasting, all they have forever is each other. They both move in for a kiss. However Batman intervenes (in the following comic issue) and says that they can never do it, and they are being ridiculous. They decide to be faithful to the ones they love back on Earth. So that is the story of how Batman and Wonder Woman nearly slept together. It spans across Batman 39 and Batman 40, however getting the sixth trade paperback (Affiliate Link) may be wiser if you are interested in the broader story around these circumstances.

So here’s the thing: they were trapped in that realm for a total of 37 years. That’s a long time to do nothing but kill monsters. To think that a man and a woman, alone with no other human in existence, would go almost four decades without sleeping with each other, is crazy. Did I mention that they don’t age at all in the realm? It’s not like they were blood relatives, or weren’t attracted to each other. I think Catwoman and Steve Trevor would have understood the situation and forgave them. Right?

Wonder Woman’s Various Relationships

In the life of Wonder Woman, one of the most significant relationships is with her mother, Queen Hippolyta. Being the Queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta has strongly influenced Wonder Woman’s value system and principles. She gave her daughter a sense of self-worth and a belief in righteousness and mercy, so their connection shows that it is possible to have a positive influence over your children using maternal love.

There is also another important relationship that characterizes Wonder Woman’s life, namely her friendship with a fellow superhero – Superman. Even though they are from different planets, the two are connected on an emotional level and have a deep respect for one another. They often work together against malevolent entities because their friendship has a firm foundation of trust and empathy. Their bond epitomizes the influence of camaraderie in overcoming disparities and uniting individuals.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman’s most famous and controversial relationship is her romantic affair with Steve Trevor. Steve was a World War II fighter pilot who was the first man she met when she embarked on her mission to the outside world. Over time, their relationship has been portrayed in various forms, but the one thing that has never changed is their love for one another. Despite being from different worlds, they have a profound bond and level of empathy which makes them an unstoppable duo in any situation, whether it be on or off the battlefield.

Also, Wonder Woman’s relationships with other women are worth noting. She has cultivated deep friendships with other formidable women like Supergirl, Batgirl, and Black Canary. These alliances illustrate the significance of female empowerment and the fortitude born of mutual support among women.

Even though the friendship of Wonder Woman does not only comprise those of the superheroes, she has also established bonds with ordinary humans including Etta Candy and Julia Kapatelis. The connections serve as evidence of her understanding nature and empathy towards every creature.

However, not all the connections Wonder Woman has created are good ones. Her worst enemy, Cheetah, used to be her best friend and partner once upon a time, but avarice and envy had overpowered their friendship and rendered it into bitter enmity. This example only underscores the fact that even the most powerful bonds may be destroyed by negative sentiments.
