I think this is a good moment to tell you that even if I like the batbrats as characters and the extended Batfam, I do like Bruce. Like I genuinely enjoy the character, he’s why I got into american comics, the first Batman comics I read where just him and Alfred and I loved them. I  learned about the rest later on, and I like them, but for me the Batman is Bruce.

This is probably why I didn’t quite enjoy the B&R series with Dick as Batman. It was entertaining, but it felt like an AU to me. And hey, I loved the Dark Mirror arc, I really did, but to me Bruce is like the keystone to all the Gotham-related universe, if he’s not there, there’s something seriously missing. It’s be like killing the Joker, there’re other villains but it wouldn’t be the same.

I knew I’d started re-reading something, and it was Legends of the Dark Knight. I think this is where I left off, issue #24.
Anyway, apart from the obvious naked Bruce, his thoughts are also kind of interesting.

Meditation. Training. Lost in them. I’ve avoided a basic fact about my secret life. For mother… for father… for all the good reasons, all the right choices… a part of me still scampers over rooftops in the dark for the sheer pleasure of it.
I’m mortified to admit just how much I love being Batman.

In Batman & Robin 18, while going through Damian’s things, Bruce finds this note.

The idea of Clark sending Damian a list of movies he might find inspiring just rips my heart out.

The movies include titles about adolescent rebellion (On the Waterfront, Rebel Without a Cause), kids overcoming major odds to become successful and heroic (My Left Foot, The Miracle Worker), movies about justice, compassion, and heroism (To Kill a Mockingbird, China Syndrome, Gorillas in the Mist, Cool Hand Luke, Lawrence of Arabia).  These are tough, challenging movies, not patronizing kiddie fare.

There was pretty much no hint before that Clark had the kind of relationship with Damian that would prompt a note like this (they met once in canon that I know of)…I wish I knew the story behind this.


(This was a beautiful issue by Tomasi and Gleason, by the way).
