The Most Graphic Hook-Up Scenes in DC Comics History

List Rules
Vote up the scenes you can't believe made it to publication.

DC Comics has more censored and less suggestive scenes than their adult Vertigo line, but that doesn't mean there aren't some graphic, suggestive DC scenes sprinkled throughout their publishing history. The sexual tension among heroes, and among villains, even between heroes and villains, builds to some of the most detailed love scenes in DC comics.

Many superheroes knocked boots in some hot, heavy DC scenes, leaving nothing to the imagination. However, oddly, some graphic scenes in DC comics left everything to the imagination, too. Even though most DC comics are written for a mainstream audience, many scenes can still get the job done despite strategic censorship. Take a look at our list of some of the oddest and most overall graphic DC comics panels.

    Batman And Talia, 'Damian: Son Of Batman'

    A small panel from the Damian: Son of Batman story "Bethlehem" showcases Damian's conception. While there have been depictions of Talia Al' Ghul and her "beloved" Bruce Wayne making love in the past, none showed this much skin. The forms of both Bats and the heiress to the League of Assassins is more than readers usually see in mainstream Batman books.

    Green Arrow And Black Canary, 'Green Arrow #34'

    In Green Arrow vol. 2, #34 (1990), Ollie and Dinah have their own tumble in the hopes to conceive a child. Seeing the two then-Seattle-based heroes entwined is moving and tender, but very graphic as readers get a glimpse of Black Canary's rear and chest as Ollie makes love to her. This isn't the typical "post-coital with bed sheets covering their private parts" panels in comics from that era.

    Ravager And Robin, 'Teen Titans #35'

    Overcoming hormones for regular teens is hard enough, but overcoming them as a Teen Titan can be even harder. In Teen Titans vol. 3 #35, Robin is still reeling from his failed attempt to clone his passed friend Superboy, and Ravager is intoxicated. The unclothed Ravager throws herself onto Robin in this scene. Before DC could get into morally questionable territory, Kid Devil bursts into the room, which breaks up the tension quick.

    Nightwing And Starfire, 'Titans #16'

    Nightwing and Starfire are arguably the most open couple in all of DC Comics. The on-again, off-again duo are a mix of innocence and sensuality as the free-spirited Koriand'r and disciplined Dick Grayson have shared a bed many times for over 20 years. In Titans #16, we get to see the fullness of their connection, both emotionally and physically.
