Third, it is overboard. I suppose this should be expected when the name of the game for all entertainment these days is loss of subtlety, explosions everywhere, etc. They risk trivializing or undermining Batman / Catwoman's sexual tension by constantly flattening it. In my opinion it in fact trivializes their entire relationship - makes it a spectacle instead of drawing us in.

Fourth, it is like a bad porno. Shouting dirty words at each other during sex? Doing it with the costumes on? Good grief, you've got to be kidding me.

Fifth, it is just an inappropriate and exploitative way to use the characters. I think we've seen how the new comics are focused on Catwoman's body parts before we ever even see her face. I don't care if the comic has a good plot - these particular scenes are exploitative and cheapen the writing. They come off as teenage fantasies or bad fan fiction. The rest of the plot may well be a story feast but these scenes leave a bad taste in my mouth.
