Batman and Robin — Partners, Friends, Lovers

“The Dark Knight” is sure to be amazing and all, but there’s one nagging issue surrounding the film: Where’s Robin?

For some reason, the Boy Wonder has been banished from director Christopher Nolan’s Gotham. We suspect the filmmaker’s worry is that the inclusion of young Robin might dredge up long-standing questions about the nature of the crime fighters’ relationship.

Since we’re big supporters of homosexual superheroes celebrating their lifestyle, we collected a sampling of art — from fans and DC comic books — depicting the Dynamic Duo’s secret love.
