When I tell people I don’t like Batman and they look at my batman keychain and batman covered wall and batman clothes and they’re just like so confused but it’s like NO YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND I LOVE BATMAN’S CHILDREN AND HIS LOGO AND SHIT BUT I HATE BATMAN BECAUSE HE’S A TOTAL DICK YOU WOULD UNDERSTAND IF YOU READ THE COMICS TRUST ME IT MAKES SENSE!!!!
I AM IN THE EXACT SAME SITUATION
Wanted to do an AU where Bruce loses the family fortune when his parents pass, but still goes down the road of vigilantism…
So how would the fight be without all the money and technology?
Also Dick looks ridiculous I really couldn’t figure anything out for him…
There was a point where he wore leggings and jogging shorts though….
would love to see more of this AU
and by see I mean also read
“mention that again and you’re fired” - Bruce
Color me completely unsurprised that Bruce had an ant farm in his formative years. His “this is my city and everyone in it depends on me” issues started early. HE FAILED GOTHANT CITY. NEVER AGAIN, ALFRED. NEVER AGAIN.
Moving on, we have the baseball movie about manpain and triumph, where Robert Redford’s character has a bat named Wonderboy. He plays for the New York Knights, and finding that his old flame had been hiding a son that he’d fathered years ago is a plot point. Tomasi, I just want to hug you, okay?
Also, can I say how much I love the fact that Bruce Wayne crying about manly men saving babies is canon? Charles Bronson’s character dies while protecting these three little boys that he’d befriended. I can’t help but think that if this crying instance had happened in Bruce’s adulthood, it’s because he was superimposing that scene with the idea of sacrificing himself for the three little boys that he’d taken in. I get that feel, Bruce. I cry about Robins, too.
These three moments are so purposeful and SO telling, and I just love Tomasi to bits for dropping headcanon like breadcrumbs. These are legitimately things that I could see Bruce crying over. Bless you.
Cackling at Tim just dropping down from the ceiling.
