(from Teen Titans Year One)
Happy Father’s Day to a man who really, really deserves it: Alfred Pennyworth.
I could go on and on about how he’s arguably the most integral part of the Bat-family, the glue that holds them together, and how Bruce probably would have died a long time ago if Alfred wasn’t there stitching him up and making sure he got enough sleep and didn’t forget to eat…
I could go on and on and on about how he’s awesome in every form of Batman media (Remember in BTAS when he let himself get arrested in Over the Edge so that Bruce and Tim could escape?) and how he truly loves and cares for Bruce and all of the Robins… Bat-sibs… Bat-kids… whatever you want to call them. Dick, Jason, Tim, Babs, Steph, Cass, Damian…
I could go on forever but I don’t think I need to because everybody has those Alfred moments they remember best, that make them smile because it’s clear what a caring, fatherly man he is.
(We love you, Alfred. Never change.)
