Black Canary is a street level, tough, HERO, who I think could deal with the physical and mental challenge of having Batman for a boyfriend. And she's one of the few characters who can fit in BOTH Gotham and the Justice League. Could they be the next Superman/Wonder Woman power couple? She needs to date someone other than Green Arrow for once IMO.

It probably won't happen in the New 52 since there's that attitude between them...

You also forgot that one comic in Birds of Prey when Black Canary kissed Batman.

Interesting thought. Wouldn't mind it, though I am kind of expecting Bruce to everntually throw a monkey wrench into this whole WW/Supes thing

Batman already has three love interests (probably more). Why add Canary in there?

Actually I like this idea. Bats is so different from Ollie, it'd be fun to see them in some odd love triangle situation.

I always liked their chemistry and think they'd have an interesting dynamic.

It takes a lot to go toe-to-toe with Batman, and Black Canary could always do that. She has the gravitas that comes with being JSA, JLA and BOP. She's smart and can kick ass, plus she's got that sunny outlook that would certainly make an interesting counterpoint to gloomy Bats.

The only problem is that this newest incarnation of Dinah isn't quite as awesome as she once was. Perhaps, with time, she'll get her swagger back.

You can ship Batman with just about any female street level character.

Well, I freely admit that if the powers at DC honestly thought they could milk money out of pairing them together, they would retroactively alter Black Canary's personality to make her compatible with The Batman. Hell, they might even recreate old panels of her with Green Arrow and add in thought balloons wherein she is thinking, "Well, if I can't have Batman, you will have to do, Ollie" or some other idiotic retroactive continuity wank. That kind of cheap contempt for continuity seems to be the business modus operandi these days for both DC and Marvel.

But the Black Canary as she has been characterized over all the years since the original Crisis on Infinite Earths mini-series could never enjoy more than a fling with Bruce Wayne or with The Batman. For one thing, she has shown an abiding annoyance with anyone who becomes joylessly obsessed -- a major character trait for most iterations of The Batman. She also respects most those men who are able to admit when they are wrong, something Green Arrow (and Green Lantern) can do but which tends to be very difficult for Batman. Furthermore, in most of her interactions with men, she has looked for romance and a certain giddy playfulness, and although Bruce Wayne can be romantic on occasion, he has difficulty letting himself relax enough for any real playfulness for any extended period of time. Finally, Black Canary has shown repeatedly that she is attracted to old-fashioned, blue collar "manly" men (which fit Ollie even before he lost his wealth once he'd spent time on that island learning archery to survive), and hard as it is to admit this about Batman, he is a bit of a blueblood snob.

I've always thought Batman and Black Canary would make a great "item" - I think DC could get some mileage out a simmering feud between Bruce/Batman and Ollie/GA. Also - How would Catwoman react? Cats and Canaries obviously don't get on so...

By the way - there is also a scene in the original Brave & Bold series -issue #166 - where Batman rescues a very scantily clad Canary from the clutches of the Penguin. As he wraps her chivalrously in his cloak and she kisses him and declares "my hero" the story ends and the reader is left wondering what happened next?!

New 52 have changed so much I'm not opposed to Bats and Canary being a couple.

If Superman can have sex with Wonder Woman before Lois Lane, Batman can bang Black Canary before Green Arrow.

Got no problem with this shipping. N52 has wiped the relationship slate clean as far as I'm concerned.

Batman can not turn it off so no it would not work. Plus as headstrong as Canary is she would not last to long being his girlfriend.

She didn't last long as Ollie's girlfriend either. How many times did they break up pre-52?

LOL. Really tho if they did do this no one would have a good reason to oppose it or be mad about it. I'd like Batman to have a girlfriend.

Anything to end the string of death that constantly in the Batman book. It needs a lighter tone if only for a few issues. This them hooking up did that I'd be in full support of it.

I agree with you that Batman needs something to lighten the mood in his books but I simply do not think that is going to be happening anytime soon. DC seems to think the new 52 version of Batman needs to be very dark brooding and almost voided of all humor.

If this did happen in the new 52 I think it would be fun for a little bit in the end Canary is meant to be with Ollie so if Bruce was her lead up to Ollie and it was well written (Something I have not found with Supes and Wonder Woman) it could work but I see it more as a fling.

Some potpourri that I gathered from comic sites is that Batman gave Black Canary her classic leather jacket and that is been seen for more than a decade so I think that they had a "thing". Now about the relationship, as an amateur matchmaker, I would they would make a good match with their serious crimefighting passion but she's better off with old GA because loving Bruce is loving a black hole while Ollie would care for her everything even if she didn't need it (Go Identity Crisis!)

I think it's funny how people romanticize the GA/Canary relationship when they went through alot of BS. Their relationship isn't nearly as great as comic nerds pretend it is.

Better than Ollie but Bruce is too devoted to the bat and probably couldn't have a functioning relationship with anyone. Especially with the "playboy by day" persona and all. Maybe he can find a woman who would be ok with sharing him.

He better start looking. It appears Catwoman will be gone for a while =O
