* See also the relationship between Batman and the Joker in the new 52. Greg Capullo, the artist, says in an interview with the website Comick Book Resources (29th April 2015) :
---> “ In “Death of the Family,” using Scott’s [the writer's] words, we had a love story – Joker loves Batman.”

* There's a bit of HoYay between Bats and {{Superman}} as well, which was gloriously sent up in the Superman/Batman Annual #1 (Or, as [[CaptainErsatz Slade's parallel-universe twin]] called it, "Brokeback Titanic"). They even [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/1346854.html?#cutid1 share a bed]].

* The thing is, Loeb was by no means the first writer to make you doubt the heterosexuality of Superman and Batman. That honour goes to Doug Moench in [[http://the-isb.blogspot.com/2005/11/where-they-went-wrong-superman-and.html ''World's Finest'' #289]], also covered [[http://asylums.insanejournal.com/scans_daily/813229.html#cutid1 here]]. It starts off with the two seeking comfort in each other at the Fortress of Solitude one lonely night and Holy Mother of God, does it go downhill from there (or [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre uphill, depending on your point of view]]). It ends with - swear to God - tentacles, and the two of them embracing. And with dialogue like this (emphasis ''so'' not mine):

** Jason and Tim. They've worked together several times and Jason has explicitly stated that Tim is the only member of the Bat family that he likes.

* Batman does have a history of sneaking into the bedrooms of attractive, naked young men. See his relationship with Comicbook/GreenLantern [[TheWoobie Kyle Rayner]], when he did so to assure Kyle that the League thought of him as the true Green Lantern. Kyle was a bit of a Batman [[AscendedFanboy fanboy]], as well.

* Among other things, [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker]] is occasionally thought to have feelings for Batman that go beyond simple obsession and into romantic obsession. In one scene, he tortures ComicBook/LexLuthor, and Lex Luthor asks him if he is upset that Batman loves Catwoman more than him. Joker looks almost adorably bewildered for a moment before flying into a rage and jacking up the torture level.

* {{ComicBook/New 52}}, ''Batman/Superman'' #18, we have [[http://missmithen.tumblr.com/post/109099825978/batman-superman-18-oh-well-okay-then this]]. The villain wants to break Superman's heart by going after the person Superman is going to miss the most if gone forever. Guess who ended up becoming the target?

* Their team-ups in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' hint at this about as much as a 1990s animated series for kids [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar could get away with]]. For instance, they were repeatedly seen hiding out together in quarters [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed with only one bed]].

* The relationship between Tim and Dick lends itself plenty to this interpretation. On the one hand you've got {{Nightwing}}, who's unbearably [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn friendly]], unbearably [[ChickMagnet handsome]], and unbearably [[BigBrotherMentor cool]]. On the other, you've got [[BadassBookworm Tim]], who once saw Dick at the circus when he was three and imprinted so much that he was [[AwesomeByAnalysis able to recognize him]] solely by his acrobatics six years later, and who then [[StalkingIsLove proceeded to stalk both his identities for several years]].
