I know there’s like 87 posts like this already but
the worst part of new52/rebirth is that Damian died and Bruce moved heaven n earth to get him back but when Tim “”“dies”“” (& not even convincingly in the DC universe, let’s be real, he didn’t even leave a body!!) Bruce is like “I sure am sad that tommy drape is dead”
like bitch!!! What the fuck! Even pretending that the postcrisis timeline really is totally gone and we’re mostly stuck with new52 crumbs, like – I won’t even get into how much it hurts that rebirth Bruce is sitting on his ass about Tim and doesn’t even question it when postcrisis red robin was all up on Bruces not-actually-dead case. So like even discarding that, new52 Bruce? Gave a fuck about Damian. But all this bullshit about Bruce only having one son is about to boil my blood because Tim got fucked over so bad by DC bc they took away his adopted by Bruce status and now Bruce doesn’t care that he’s probably still alive somewhere bc clearly only his “”“real son”“” is worthy of Bruces love and dedication
Fuck off with your blood is thicker than water bullshit, we all know that the real batman takeaway is that found families are incredible esp for people who don’t have anyone else
Also uh tiny sidenote??? we still don’t have Kon back so, up yours DC🖕🖕🖕
Barbara and Steph love Black Canary, just slightly differently. Barbara just knows Dinah is the best, and there’s no other option, but Steph? That there is her icon. Black Canary is her role model, her hopes and dreams. Barbara is the good best friend type, but Steph is on some Tim Drake level stalker shit.
Dick is a hardcore Superman fan. As a smol bean he had only Superman merch, he even had one of those costumes with the blow up muscles, much to Bruce’s distress. The boy in blue will always have Dick as his number one fanboy.
Bruce idolizes Wonder Woman, and no one can say otherwise. It started as a joke with Diana but now he wears the knee high socks with the little capes on the end under his suits and all WE employees have learned not to question it. Besides, the Amazon is a strong independent woman who is too pure for the world, they can’t judge because they’re all enamoured with her too.
Jason is on a similar boat to Bruce, but he’s legally dead so not many people see him decked out in his fan wear. He has the tiara and will proudly wear it out with no shame whatsoever.
Cassandra, surprisingly, likes the Flash. He’s basically the opposite of her, speaks much too fast, and far from refrained, but they both have the same issues; communication takes conscious effort and they both hold so much power. He’s also so pure, how could anyone not love him?
Now Tim always changes his favourite hero, basically every other week, so it’s hard to pin down. Past favourites include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Black Canary, Flash, Aquaman, and the likes.
Damian is a Nightwing fan, but don’t tell Dick. He has action figures of his brother hidden in the back of his closet. And boy does he know about the Discowing suit. Dick did not live that one down. Still hasn’t.
Duke is too sweet to outright say so, but he likes Green Lantern. Has been known to wear a Green Lantern Corps ring to school. Also may or may not have pajamas with the symbols.
Alfred will always say Batman, but Robin and Batgirl will always hold a special place in his heart.
Dick: @graysondive Filled with parkour videos and bright, happy selfies with his extensive list of friends/teammates. Likes his own photos without shame. His most popular post is of him doing backflips over unsuspecting passerby with Wally giggling in the background.
Jason: @jxsontxdd Total edgelord; strict black/white/red aesthetic. Lots of shots of his leather jacket and whatever hipster book he is reading at the moment. Babs never fails to call him out in the comments. [Don’t act like this is candid, I literally just watched you smoke five cigarettes until you got this smoke picture just how you liked it]
Tim: @timagotchi Hardly ever posts, but his meme account @crackcaffeine is verified and poppin’ with only the freshest jokes and the wildest conspiracy theories [Confirmed: Bruce Wayne Did 9/11].
Damian: @heirofgotham52[Tim suggested @tasdamiandevil but Damian made it VERY CLEAR he didn’t appreciate the joke] Literally an animal account. All of his pictures are of his pets. Everything is tagged with #dogsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #cowsofinstagram etc. Spam posts nonstop all day, every day.
Bruce: @brucethomaswayne Jason and Tim made him get one for networking purposes, but Bruce secretly loves it. His profile is covered in silly candids of his children, one’s that make them groan and beg Bruce to take the photo down. He never does.
I’m going to start watching Young Justice today. I’m also looking to buy comics and get farther into that subset of the fandom but I am so very at a loss as far as where to start goes. I’m really interested in the Batfam. The only thing I’ve ordered so far is Super-Sons because I haven’t seen a single person criticize it so far on here and that’s rare for Tumblr. I really especially love all the Batgirls and Damien as far as that goes if that helps with making recs.
And then the other one I’d really like to start getting into is Wally West’s arcs. I’ve already been advised to buy Young Justice but if anyone has any recs as far as the storylines integrating him as Kid Flash and bringing in Linda Park go, I’d love to kind of start there with the Flash verse and work my way into other things based on what I like from there.
batman fans who only saw the movies: the joker is the best villain ever, he is such an intricate and profound character and he challenges batman in a way no one else could ever by exposing the unpopular yet harsh reality of life
batman fans who read the comics: the joker is a piece of shit i hope he dies choking on five of jason todd’s guns and stays dead and forgotten
What if everyone in Gotham knows that Bruce Wayne has one biological child…
But none of them knows who is?
See, each of his five children acts and looks so much like Bruce that they can’t figure out which one it is. Most swear it’s Cass. She’s the one whose origin they know the least about, plus she acts the most like their father, so the majority of the population assume it’s Cass. Others think it’s Tim, since no billionaire would give his very important company to his kid unless he were his actual child. But a lot of people also suspect that Jason is the product of one drunken night between Bruce Wayne and some random woman who died and left him Jason to take care of, which would explain why Bruce adopted some random street rat without warning. Though questions often circulate about whether Dick Grayson was actually the son of a pair of acrobats, or if it was all a ploy to hide his true origin, which was a scandalous love affair that occurred between Bruce Wayne and Marie Grayson during a trip to see the circus.
Nobody suspects Damian, though. The Bruce Wayne that Gotham knows and loves is a rich playboy who likes picking up ladies and going to fancy parties. Damian Wayne is too grumpy and angry to possibly be the biological son of that guy, right?
