Bruce Wayne: *is a master tactician and brilliant businessman with decades of experience hiding his secret identity*
Also Bruce Wayne, at three am, probably high on caffeine pills:
Jason Todd likes this tweet :P
Tim, angrily: ARE YOU-
Tim: -KIDDING ME?
Duke: …what was that?
Jason: Alfred banned Tim from swearing for a week, so I volunteered to help him out.
Duke: I think you just like saying fuck.
Jason: That doesn’t make my job any less important.
i literally will never forgive comic fans and in turn comic writers for hyping up joker so much. there’s a batman villain who can make people face their literal worst fears, someone who is still torn between two personalities and who used to be a close friend of batman, another one who builds death traps involving riddles and that’s just off the top of my head. but no. i’ve gotta watch joker use some clown gimmicky bullshit on batman for the 200th time and, AND he has no style. what the fuck. purple and green? go fuck yourself
BRUCE: I’ve created jobs by keeping Wayne Enterprises in Gotham. I’ve provided scholarships to every employee of my company and I offer them to others as well. I’ve built orphanages and hospitals, including mental health facilities. I’ve provided jobs to ex-felons right out of prison so they can rebuild their lives. I’ve supported pro-reform political candidates and the few honest cops in Gotham City.
BRUCE: It’s going to take time to reform the system and lift this city out of poverty and corruption, so I think I’ll spend my evenings protecting the people who live here. Tonight, I’m going after the criminals preying on the sex workers struggling to make a living in Crime Alley.
BRUCE: And once I’ve kicked some ass, I’ll offer their victims jobs at Wayne Enterprises so they can get off the streets and have stable, safe, legal employment. I’ll pay for any education or training they might need.
ALFRED: Don’t forget your cape, sir.
there was an entire episode of the 90s series ‘the forgotten’ where he personally visits a homeless shelter he funds, discovers some homeless people who frequent it have gone missing, then to find out where they went purposefully pretends to be homeless to be beaten up, captured, and taken to where the other homeless guys were being used as slave labor
he legit willingly submits himself to torture and nearly dies trying to help homeless people, at least one person actually died in this situation he willingly entered
then when he gets out straight up has Alfred pull the limousine up with job applications for the guys he was locked up with
-that- is how to batman
Give me someone who has some fucked up tastes in fiction, but is kind and respectful to real people, over someone who only ever ships the healthiest ships and stans the purest characters, but is rude and cruel to real people, any day of the week.
Your goddamn fictional preferences don’t show what kind of person you are; your actions do.
It’s not a hard concept to grasp.

I like to think he purchased this plush bear in full costume because I like the mental image of Batman standing in line at Walmart or Toys R Us with a plush animal in his arms
And he acted the whole time like it was completely normal with deadpan conversation
write your rarepairs. fill that ao3 tag with rarepairs. convert people to your rarepair by making good content of it. draw your rarepair. love your rarepair. even if you are the sole person who made it up with a few people in japan drawing fanart, you have so much power and control at your fingertips by wanting to create. sure, you’ll have to make your own meals while people into popular ships can filter by precise tags to get exactly what you want, but you have something they don’t: you can make your own fandom experience enjoyable and make several people happy in the process by making that counter go up for pieces of content.
i don’t care if your favs don’t even look at each other in canon. if you see narrative parallels between them and you think they complete each other, let the content do the talking.
Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Gotham City Breakout
why does every dc lego movie understand the characters on a deeper fundamental level than their live action ones
Cause they’re made by actual fans who like to joke about their faves instead of edgy dudebros who only stan the stalest, most #Twisted™ versions of the characters?
is clark holding robin by the scruff of his neck like a kitten here
Martha: Sometimes people shake their injured hand when they touch a hot pot like this kettel and yelp out “ouch!”
Clark: Like this? ouch!
Maratha: Well both hands might be overdoing it
I like thinking about how Mama Kent had to teach Clark how to pretend to feel pain with nightly acting lessons.
