batman and carrie kelly

i think the reason Dick Grayson looks like Carrie Kelly in the lego batman movie is because he’s supposed to symbolize a “ROBIN” not just Dick, as in the roll a robin is supposed to play as batmans partner.

And both Dick and Carrie go along side two versions of batman that are kind of polar opposites of each other. Carrie paired with Frank miller’s gritty, edgy batman and Dick paired with the silver age goofball version

And i feel like LEGO batman falls inbetween those two versions. comically dark and edgy to make fun of how he’s usually interpreted today but just as goofy as he used to be before the comics started getting unnecessarily “serious”

So a robin that’s a spiritual mix of Richard and Carrie (while obviously being his own character) is kind of perfect


“We live in the shadow of crime with the unspoken understanding that we are victims.. of fear, of violence, of social impotence. A man has risen to show us that the power is, and always has been, in our hands. We are under siege. He’s showing us that we can resist.”
― Frank Miller, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns


Happy Mother’s Day! #WonderWoman 

“In a child’s eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.”
N.K. Jemisin

Diana faces the real battles any mother has to face. Not only loving,  protecting, nurturing, guiding and supporting her children but dealing with the challenges of a child trying to find her identity and place in life. Motherhood involves dealing with rebellious, angry and stubborn children. It is not only rainbows and picnics. As a Queen and superhero  she has to protect her offspring, her people and the world from darkness and tyrants. She does it with true inner and outer strength, courage and wisdom.
