A few weeks ago the Kents when to see the campy musical “It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman.” Clark enjoyed it for what it is, and is flattered by its existence. Lois hates it because of how it depicts her as hopelessly in love with Superman, and dreaming of being a housewife. Jon hasn’t stoped singing the songs. Alfred is trying to get rights to it for his next community theatre production.

Conner: Why? Why are you here?

Tim: Why not?

Conner: …Because of your Dad.

Tim: What? How do you–?

Conner: Superman told me. He thought I should know that you might not be coming to the Tower for–

Tim: Did you tell anyone else?

Conner: No. I guess it’s our new secret.

Tim: I just want to forget it.

Conner: Forget it? You don’t forget something like this. You remember what you told me when I found out I had Lex Luthor’s D.N.A. rattling inside my genetics? You said you’d help me deal with it. And you said one there I’d be there to help you deal with something. Maybe…this is that something.

Tim: Don’t bring it up again. I’m going to enjoy myself. I’m going to have fun. That’s why I came to the Tower.

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.

Does anyone else think of that one issue of Red Robin, where Tim has M’gann pose as him at a press conference so that Vicki Vale sees Red Robin and Tim Drake in the same place at the same time, but nobody else knew about the set up besides the Batfam?

Can you just imagine the entire superhero community seeing Tim Drake on television being shot, and they’re all probably panicked, but then less than a millisecond later the camera pans to show Red Robin fighting Scarab, and they’re all throwing down their capes, cursing out Batman and the entire Batfamily.

Like, Conner was probably halfway to Gotham when Clark calls him, and Kon just stops midair and goes “jesus fuckign. How do you deal with this bat stuff?” Then Clark says “Don’t ask me. I just found out Bruce isn’t actually dead.”
