    Thanks for clarifying. I know there are people who would unironically be in favor of that, so it was hard to tell.

    Bruce tried to restore Dick's memory though - he hired the best brain surgeon in the whole world and wanted to hire the second best when the best didn't work. Its just Ric got angry whenever anyone tried to help him - wasn't really all that much Bruce can do in that case. Because he cannot really force Ric into having Brain treatment he doesn't want.

    Barbara as well wasn't really discarded. Didn't Bruce spend millions funding experimental treatment to get her to walk again, plus he must have provided all the equipment and stuff for her clocktower and her being Oracle. and for Damian he literally went to hell and back to revive him.

    Arguebly Spoiler and Huntress might have an arguement, since I dont think we have ever really seen Bruce be particularly supportive to either of them following a disaster.

    I think the last thing the Batfamily needs is a Civil War storyline. The family barely feels really close as is.

    It reminds me of one of my main issue's with Tynion's 'Tec run where it felt like he was tearing down the team more then he was building them up.

    I'd like to see a book which pairs random members of the batfamily together. Because currently some characters feel like they do not know each other cause they hardly ever interact.

    I'd like to see a Bruce, Helena and Jason team up or Barbara and Damian or Luke and Duke etc. Would be fun to see different characters play off each other who arent usually together.

    This just reminded me that I think Bruce has had, like, one panel of interaction with Huntress, which is kind of hilarious .

    Bruce hired the Court of Owls, and then apparently Scare Crow. If Bruce did any kind of follow up he might have figured it out, or at least that it’s not safe to let this person just be completely on his own. Ric has the mind of a child and obviously brain trauma. So what if he got angry, he’s a delusional child with mental trauma. Dick was literally left to live on the street as a hobo and then was immediately preyed upon by various Bat villains. According to their story, which is is completely thoughtless and shit don’t get me wrong. Bruce wrote Dick off and left him to the wolves after he didn’t get what he wanted.

    Babs they would have to spin, but Damian was initially rejected by Bruce till Dick gave Damian a chance. And even now he’s so distant with Damian it makes Deathstroke uncomfortable.

    Maybe not a civil rather just a break from each other. I get why they need Bruce to push others but I feel at times DC does it too often. They are more of a dysfunctional family. But it doesn't often feel like love is there at times

    That literally always happens. Fan artists can't even make fan art of their ideal Batfamily without someone crying about their favorite nobody-Bat character not being in the picture.

    Yes, it's too big. Slay everyone but Babs and Dick.

    Nope. It's not big enough.

    I'm not just saying that because I like all of them and they're good characters, I'm saying that because the area they'd have to cover is so large they need everyone they can get. The main islands of Gotham alone, without counting sewers, subways, and bridges, are over 40 square miles in total. That's about the size of Paris, or about twice as big as Manhattan, and that's just the land. There's still all the waterways and mainland areas to add to that, and even then there's still hundreds of miles of sewers and subways. Hundreds of multiple-floor buildings, too.

    now that I think about it the batfamily is way to big, we should kill them all off, Bruce and Alfred included. let the whole line go extinct and make more room for what the people really want; more Clayface.*

    I'd actually read an elseworlds story about the batfamily getting along and fighting crime in Gotham - and at the end it's revealed that everyone of the batfamily died long ago and that Clayface is impersonating them to keep crime in Gotham from escalating.

    The Batfam should consist of direct family members, their ancillary cast members do not count but operate in Gotham with Batmans blessings or count as partners/aides. These members differ from other Gotham vigilantes in that they have access to the Bat Network.

    Batfam
    Bruce
    Dick
    Jason
    Tim
    Damien
    Alfred
    Duke
    Babs
    Cass
    Stephanie (very much an odd one, but yes)

    Aides
    Azrael
    Gotham Girl
    Huntress
    Batwing
    Redeemed Rogues (Clayface/2-face etc)
    Batwoman
    Blue Bird
    Talon

    Except Kate Kane IS family. She's Bruce's first cousin on his mother's side.

    Also; its "Damian."

    Kate Kane operates irrespective of Bruce. She'd be Batwoman if he let her in on it or not.
