Sorry, for not posting last weekend, but here is a mid-week post to make up for it.
Thanks to a nice member of the best unmasking forum in the world, I learned about a certain scene in a comic book.
And I have to say… it has become one of my favorite unmaskings in a comic book!
I think I knew most of the really good unmaskings by now, but this one has somehow slipped below my radar.
Let’s check it out:
Watch the pages before you go on!
Well, I love it! The fight with Batman is a nice start, always very sexy material, and the fact that he knocks her out….for just some seconds(?) to deliver her to the cops is quite unusual.
But well, after all, this is a very unusual storyline and many things are very different from the “normal” Batman world.
I love how he orders the cops to unmask her! Pure gold 🙂
A little odd that he leaves that to them, as I would have gladly done the job myself… if I would be Batman.
Of course, it would be nice to have the unmasking in more detail…in more panels…but ok.
However, the result is fantastic! Her mask yanked away to her forehead and the expression on her face…wow! She knows that she is screwed big time!
The cops and Batman now know who she is. They know who the famous cat burglar is and her career is pretty much over!
The big surprise here is that Catwoman is actually NOT Selina Kyle but Vikki Vale, and it makes it even better, especially when she is “interviewed” by Dr. Crane a few pages later on.
After she is injected with a truth serum she admits how she loves “the excitement, the danger, the fun” when she is Catwoman!
They should have added how much she loves to run around in that tight costume and mask and how much it turns her on 😉 . But that would have been too much for the censors 😆
A great fantasy to have a star reporter running around as Catwoman at night! A respected and famous member of society during the day and a wanted criminal at night, certainly a great mixture 🙂
And that makes the unmasking even better!
Of course, I would prefer her not to be handcuffed and to say something like “NO!” or “Not my mask!” or “Don’t you dare!”… but these are only small issues.
All in all, I am very happy to now know this “unmasking gem”.
