    I know there's all this talk about Batman being terrible or abusive, but I always appreciate it when they show how good he is with kids .

    Jason's last line in the preview is perfect. While all the boys are different and while they mostly have shared experiences they have different life circumstances. Bruce took in Dick fairly immediately. Tim has had his family. Damien had family, even if they are a twisted bunch. Only Jason had any experience in foster care. So I can see Jason having a different perspective on how to handle things despite his time under Bruce's wings.

    Manipulating a kid with sweets is not something I'd consider "good with kids". If Bruce was really "good", he'd apologize - at least to Tyler for scaring him. But Bruce should also go back to the goons from the last chapter and apologize to them too. The way he treated them was out of proportion compared to what they did - buying food for Mr. Freeze.

    I don't see it as manipulating him. He's obviously using the soft touch here to let the kid know he's not a threat and not something to be scared of. He's trying to make him feel safe.

    Now you're making me wonder about proportional response to goons .

    I don't know about you, but a guy who puts on a fake smile and then - when the person is gone - immediately goes full "I'm so aggro, I clench my teeth really hard" fury furry mode doesn't make me feel safe.

    The smile seems perfectly genuine to me, and then he just takes a more frank and professional tone with Jason. But I guess I think Bruce can shift between genuine emotions that quick.

    I mean, Jason did went all wrong with the whole situation and put the kid at unnecessary risk with his little stunt. What, did you expect Bruce to congratulate Jason and throw a party?
