Summary: The summer of 1955 saw the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, known to most people behind the fourth wall as Batman and Catwoman. It was the year Bruce and Selina got their lives together after fighting and committing crime as Batman and Catwoman respectively for fifteen years. They both reached a point in their lives where they started reevaluating where their lives were going, they especially realised they weren't getting any younger, and so they started thinking about the other things they wanted to have in life. Bruce in particular began to acknowledge the positives of having relationships in his life and Selina reached a point in her life where crime no longer provided her with the thrills it once did. One thing Bruce and Selina had in common? They both realised they wanted a family more than anything. (See Brave and the Bold #197: The Autobiography of Bruce Wayne.)
