“Note Spelling?” “Definitely a bit tricky,” said Nanny. “Esmerelda, now, that was a good one. Gytha would have been good too, but Esmerelda, yes, you can’t argue with it. But you know kids. They’ll all be calling her Spelly.”

Yeah, I can dream! If DC ever did this then I can die happy!!
Anyway, Terry McGinnis for you guys! I used Nightwing for my reference but I did make some changes that makes Terry different.
For example, Terry would have more upper body strength than Dick from the way the Batsuit is designed. The wings attach to his arms from his back so the need to deal with up/down drafts while flying though the buildings would require more strength. It seems while building the suit Bruce sacrificed efficiency for speed and agility. With this in mind, I made Terry’s arms thicker and his chest wider.
I also gave Terry larger calf and thigh muscles. Though the Batsuit makes Terry 10x stronger/faster than normal; the environment that Terry lives in is much different that Dick’s. With Skyscrapers being the over all building that dominates Neo-Gotham, and chasing criminals up an down them would be no easy feat.
Terry is also thinner than Dick. With his duty as Batman, school, and a child of a single parent food is probably a hard thing to come by even with Bruce helping. Forgetting to eat even when he’s hungry could also be a problem given his very busy and exhausting nocturnal lifestyle.
Anyhow, I’ll be doing a few more characters like this for this AU! so keep an eye out! XD
Would a minute have mattered? No, probably not, although his young son appeared to have a very accurate internal clock. Possibly even 2 minutes would be okay. Three minutes, even. You could go to five minutes, perhaps. But that was just it. If you could go for five minutes, then you’d go to ten, then half an hour, a couple of hours…and not see your son all evening. So that was that. Six o'clock, prompt. Every day. Read to young Sam. No excuses. He’d promised himself that. No excuses. No excuses at all. Once you had a good excuse, you opened the door to bad excuses.
