Ooof that Huntress/Blue Beetle episode of Brave and the Bold was all sorts of uncomfortable! The entire Huntress/Batman dynamic was unbearable. Not only should Helena Bertinelli not be into Bruce at all, but with her wearing the Helena Wayne Huntress costume? It reeked of just such weird incesty vibes. And between Beetle drooling over her the whole time and Batman’s dialogue over the top cheesey, that whole episode was a stinker.
It’s weird how great some of these episodes are and how much of a chore others are.
Oh my. I can’t wait to see your reaction to the Mask of Matches Malone episode where this was a thing that happened.
I think this episode—far more than the one you’re discussing here—takes the whole ‘Huntress being into her dad’ creepiness factor to a whole new level. :P
The sad part is even the pre-Crisis comics presented both the Earth-1 Batman and the Earth-2 Huntress in ways that…uh…didn’t look appropriate for a father and daughter even if parallel. x_x
Bruce, come on. What the hell.
And do you remember that weird kiss?! A cringe fest! The way she says this sounds like she’s having a serious sexy crush on the guy who’s basically her father “in young”.
It’s one of those things that’s hard to forget when taken out of context like in this case.
It was one of those kisses that ‘misfired’ on the page. :P
Then we have this one to boot:
Poor Helena. Those are some serious knockers she’s sporting there coupled with some unfortunate dialogue. :P
She looks like she’s about to fire boob missiles. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TorpedoTits
