Another example of the Manga-fication of American comics. The awful 1970's animae-style art that pervades the titles and cartoon shows today is bad enough. Now the familiar inappropriate sexual Student-Teacher pedophile themes are appearing more often than ever.
A much-older and more mature special agent puts a tongue-lock on the not-yet-of-legal-age-of-consent Bat-family member Robin with a promise of more to come. Teachers have gone to jail for behavior like that.
The connection between horror and sex, particularly with Robin's thought-boxes over-lapping into the smooching & sexual proposal panels is exactly what Wertham and others later were whining about. Robin is disgusted, horrified and nearly traumatized by the pregnant mother-demon while at the same time some hot danger-loving chick is promising a romp. Robin is under-age, Von Hammer is not.
Imagine if the roles were reversed. An older and adult Robin approaches a 16 year old girl traumatized by her encounter with a demon. To the amusement of on-lookers, Robin grabs the girl and forcibly kisses her while rubbing his muscular body up against hers. Robin then promises the girl a wild sexual romp later after her 18th birthday. Incredibly wrong and creepy, isn't it? But that is what happened, only there is a perceived double-standard in that it was acceptable if a woman was the aggressor. Should a male do that he would be arrested. Had the writer reversed the roles then DC would probably be facing if not just concerned parents groups or disgusted fans, then the possibility exists that some official committee much like comics had to deal with starting in the 1950s would begin to pay some attention.
It just wasn't necessary, I'm saying. There has to be a way to increase sales and appeal to teen readers and those 40 year olds without resorting to the nasty child-porn themes and overtly sexual themes.
