i can’t deal with people who insist batman would work alone because without his allies (batfam) he literally self - destructs? he becomes a wild tyrant so detached from humanity and himself? every incarnation of batman after he’s lost jason todd is extremely mentally unstable until tim drake steps in. bruce doesn’t even really UNDERSTAND the gravity of his mission until dick grayson becomes his ward. mans has no stable sense of self, and depends on friends / family for it. any fanboy who says batman should work alone / doesn’t need a robin is someone i Cannot Trust.
