Balancing a love life is also a part of the story of many heroes, so people have strong feelings about how those romances are portrayed. This romance ranks at the bottom of the list not because it's not noteworthy or because no one remembers it. Ever since fans first heard that Bruce Wayne and Barbara Gordon had a romantic history in Batman Beyond , people were confused and uncomfortable with it. Batman and his allies are often called the Bat Family for a reason-- because they really are like blood relatives at times. Batman is a patriarch who has taken in youths to raise and train, adopting a young Jason Todd. How could Bruce look at her as a lover? Well, in the recent movie adaption of The Killing Joke , we found out how. In one of the most criticized aspects of the movie, the first portion of the story shows Barbara being fixated on Batman, ultimately culminating in them fighting on a rooftop, which transitions into the two presumably sleeping together.
