Batman and Catwoman are getting married, and it’s the superhero event of the season! However, Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle can’t take their engagement public, as it would raise too many questions that could potentially expose Batman’s secret identity. Only a select few even know about Batman and Catwoman’s plans to start a new life together. However, their enemies are already trying to ensure that they never make it to the altar.
Next week, writer Tim Seeley and artists Travis Moore and Otto Schmidt will set the stage for Bruce and Selina’s union in Batman: Prelude to the Wedding – Nightwing vs. Hush #1. And in our exclusive preview from this special one-shot, we see that Batman is getting a bachelor party whether he wants one or not.
Of course, any bachelor party with Superman as one of the groomsmen isn’t going to be a scandalous affair. It’s just not his style! Instead, Nightwing and Superman have taken Batman to a superhero themed burger joint where they can actually eat dinner in costume without drawing too much undue attention.
Unlike Booster Gold, Superman’s idea of a gift for Batman could actually be relaxing: a pocket universe where the three heroes can fish for hours without being interrupted.
But superhero weddings rarely go off without a hitch, so why should the bachelor party be any different? One of Batman’s old enemies is making sure that the Man of Steel is out of the way before making his move of the groom-to-be.
Tommy Elliot was one of Bruce Wayne’s closest friends when they were children. But as Hush, Tommy has been dangerously obsessed with Bruce and his superhero alter ego. More alarmingly, Hush somehow knew where and when to target the heroes and catch them off guard.
Judging by the cover, this battle is going to come down to a fight between Nightwing and Hush, and only one of them will emerge victorious.
Batman: Prelude to the Wedding – Nightwing vs. Hush #1 will be released on Wednesday, June 6.
