You mentioned Batman's age and Hal's age before. Can you list all the League member's age and how that would all work out? And at what age did Bruce adopt Dick?
Aaaaaah, I am not actually clear on, like… most of them? I kind of make things up as I go and retcon things as necessary when I’ve given them more though (because sometimes I just throw things out there and then later they become relevant and I have to fix them, lmao)
Anyway here are some ages that I know for sure circa Third Wheel, though obvs they are higher in basically every other fic (since Third Wheel is one of the first fics in the proper-superheroes timeline):
- Bruce: 26
- Clark: 24
- Diana: 356
- Lois: 25
- Dick: 14
- Barbara: 13
- Selina: 17 (I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM)
- Zatanna: 26
- Oliver: 25
- Laurel and Sara: 26
- Hal: 30
- Barry: 23
Everyone else is up in the air. J’onn is probably a couple hundred years because I’m into that, Arthur is… I haven’t decided what his deal is, age-wise.
Anyway everyone thinks of Barry as a babby and they also assume Bruce and Clark are much older than they are, because Authority. Except for the people who are aware of their identities, which is a pretty small group (Diana, J’onn, Zatanna).
When Dick got adopted, he was 12 and Bruce was 24. Dick did not realize until he was much older that this was way too fucking young to be adopting twelve year olds, because when you are 12 anything above 20 seems Old As Balls.
