You can bet your ass the day Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle bless Gotham City with a daughter it’s a fucking event. Fireworks for an entire month, pink balloons released in parks all across the city, flowers and gifts sent to Wayne Manor from well meaning citizens. And that’s all without her name ever being released. Once Wayne Enterprises releases a statement saying Bruce and Selina named her Martha everyone loses their shit (naturally her middle name is Maria for Selina’s mother but not many notice that as quickly). Magazines and newspapers analyze the meaning, people take old footage of Bruce’s mother and mix it with what little there is of his daughter to create YouTube tribute videos. The city is obsessed with a child that hasn’t even seen her first month of life yet.
And this makes the third generation of Waynes that Alfred has lived to know. He can only hope baby Martha meets a kinder fate than her namesake. Of course he spoils her, everyone does. He worries though. He worries because he knows Martha is truly her parents’ child. She’s Bruce’s ferocity and intelligence. She’s Selina’s cunning and endurance. But Alfred doesn’t dwell on that for too long. No, he just loves her and treasures her like the miracle she is.
As much as Bruce would like to pretend otherwise, Martha is also Batman’s daughter which puts her at a level of danger most horror movie writers can only dream of. He has nightmares of the Joker holding his daughter above some acid pit, of the Penguin kidnapping her right from her crib. He always expects the worst which is why he immediately jumps for the closest weapon when he comes home one night to find Martha cradled in Harley Quinn’s arms. Selina has to coax him down, reminding him that yes Martha is Batman’s daughter, but she is also Catwoman’s daughter. And with that comes Aunt Harley and Aunt Ivy who are already completely wrapped around Martha’s tiny, chubby fingers. Bruce decides if Selina’s friends get to play family, so do his. Clark and Diana are at the Manor before the phone call is finished.
