Headcanon that the batkids hide under Bruce’s cape ALL the time. When they get cold on patrol, when they’re scared of a particularly creepy villain, when they get tired and need a warm, dark place to hide, they can always be found in Bruce’s cape, hanging onto his back like a koala. One time Hal and Barry were at the watchtower just hanging out when they saw something move under Batman’s cape. Assuming it was an alien parasite out to kill the dark knight by sucking his brains out, Barry pulled off the cape to reveal not one, not two, but three of Bruce’s kids huddled under there playing a game of Uno. It was a mystifying experience.  

I really, REALLY dislike what Gabrych did with Cass’s voice towards the end of her solo book.

I don’t like how he consistently makes her word wrong, and I REALLY dislike all the filler he fills her mouth with. Cass isn’t an “Uhhh” kind of person. She just… waits until she has something to say again. If you hark back to Puckett, Cass’ dialogue is still stilted, but it’s full of gaps - not filler.


…But anyway this little scene made me smile because I’m a child.

I love how Kate was supposed to only train them but it keeps showing how she really cares about and basically became a mother figure to both Cass and Steph.

Detective Comics #951 is a slow start of the story, but an effective one, setting up and showing how malicious and manipulative League of Shadows can be. Shiva’s presence seems especially strong - even when she is not on the page you can feel her hiding under Bruce’s notice, watching. So far only Cass seems to have noticed her. Cannot wait for their confrontation.

Batkids on their playdates team missions!

A few fun facts:

  • Roy often skips Boy Scout meetings to hang out with Kori and Jason (Don’t tell Ollie)
  • Kyle Rayner is usually hanging with the Troublemakers but had a cold on this particular day and Hal wouldn’t let him leave the house.
  • Cass is wearing Bruce’s old costume (here) that she found in the attic while playing hide and seek with her brothers. Alfred has since made a few alterations to it, of course.
  • That stuffed cat looking thing behind Damian was made by Dick. Alfred has been teaching him how to sew and he practices by making tons of plush for his siblings! (They’re finally starting to look like actual animals)
  • Don’t worry, Alfred fixed Mr. Moo.

Fierce ladies.

Due to recent events, I lost a ton of inspiration and motivation. Thankfully, working on commissions and this fun series helped me get centered again and ready for whatever may come in the new week. Also, for anyone wondering, Barbara’s suit is based on the Young Justice one. SEASON 3 IS COMIIIING

This mostly wraps up the main set, but I maaaay have got some more on the way…
