WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Batman: Prelude to the Wedding - Nightwing vs. Hush by Tim Seeley, Travis Moore and Otto Schmidt, in stores now.
Ever since Batman got down on one knee and proposed to Catwoman, much of the attention has been focused on the idea of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle getting married, and less on how the actual ceremony will come together. But as the big day approaches, we're getting more and more into the minutiae of the dynamic couple's wedding preparations.
In recent weeks, Selina Kyle found her dress and took the time to bond with Damian, Batman's sone and the current Robin. Now, it's time for Batman's bachelor party. Of course, the party goes as well as can be expected, but as out of hand as it gets, the night out on the town finally confirms the identity of the Dark Knight's self-appointed groomsmen.
Although Batman prefers to work alone and mostly keeps to himself, he simply can't deny the fact that there are a lot of people who are close to him. From Alfred, Jim Gordon and Lucius Fox to the extended Bat-family and the Justice League, there are many friends who could stand next to him at the altar. But there are only two of them who were always going to be Batman's groomsmen, as revealed in Batman: Prelude to the Wedding - Nighting vs. Hush #1: Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing, and Superman himself, Clark Kent.
These two make the most sense, considering that they are some of Bruce's longest and dearest friendships. Dick has been at his side for decades, the other half of the Dynamic Duo, while Superman is perhaps Bruce's oldest superhero friend, and one part of the World's Finest team. Together, these two throw Bruce a bachelor party that starts with hamburgers and ends with a quiet fishing trip, tough it does go off the rails along the way. Ultimately however, it doesn't matter, because with these two at his side, there's nothing Batman can't overcome.
Alas, the issue closes without Bruce choosing his best man, although the Joker would certainly like to fill that spot.
