DC Comics Challenge - Day 26: Favorite Relationship (Platonic)

Batman/Alfred

I don’t know if “platonic” is the right word for it, because it’s really familial.  But if we’re defining “platonic” as non-romantic relationship, then I think Batman/Alfred is my favorite.

I just don’t think Batman as a concept would work for me without Alfred.

Alfred’s droll wit is only outmatched by his loyalty.

He is a balancing force for Bruce Wayne, and the rich playboy I think would have lost himself to his quest for vengeance a long time ago if not for Alfred.

Alfred has known Batman longer than anyone else, and I think because of that Bruce knows he can’t fake, bluff, or deceive the butler.  He’s more genuine with Alfred than any other character.

And I think that’s because Alfred doesn’t see Batman.  Everybody else that knows Bruce sees him as Batman. But I think Alfred just sees him as that little boy who plays dress up every night.

So yeah, I really love the relationship between these two.

DC Comics Challenge - Day 19: Best Spinoff Series

Justice League Unlimited

Because they did amazing things with Heroes that don’t normally get the spotlight….

They showed how much possibility the whole universe has 

They did interesting things with characters we were already familiar with

and did it all while not taking themselves too seriously.

An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t

I had no idea this was happening. Where are we going?
