    Start to sell this and we'll see a very different number.
    Webtoon has paid content. You can buy coins to see future chapters. That's how this business gets income, it seems to be really sustainable.

    It's relatively cheap. I could buy two chapters for one dollar (I still have thirty coins, but it isn't enough for another chapter).

    well, yes and no. I can't speak for everyone, though I'm sure it's likely a similar situation, but for Duke the evolution of this sorta wide-eyed gullible characterization has been pretty prominent in the Slice of Life/Tumblr-sphere of the DC fandom for a few years now. it's basically something that snowballed out of that one burger scene in I Am Bane due to many batfans not really having a good idea of who Duke is; which in part probably came from him being the only member that was created in their lifetime and not having as much material to base off of. around this time there we also alot of "metalhead" Duke content and takes due a scene involving a vulgar batman joke, which came out if All-Star Batman but let's not get bogged down into that. i feel it's more of a fundamental misunderstanding of the character more than something that's just made up.

    I feel like I'm the only one who didn't love that scene.

    There was a certain novelty to it but it was around the time King's characterization issues and reducing characters to fit the plot started happening.

    I just realized. Tim having no sense of direction is probably meta commentary. DC doesn't seem to know where to lead him half the time.

    Seems about right then.

    Really, most of that is based on the fluff Bat-family fanfics I've come across. Bruce being a decent dad (which goes hard against comics of the last 20+ years or so), Duke being a "cinnamon roll" (just all around good guy), Tim being a coffee addict, Jason, I guess you could call it the "PG" version of him (stealing a bit, a bit confrontational, but still a good guy), Damian "working on his people skills" (being a little shit). Sure, a bit extra, but yeah.

    ...Okay, that makes sense.

    But why coffee addict?

    I know its a big thing in fanfics, but I assume it came from a Red Robin issue, if anything. Though I could well be wrong.

    Fandom. It's a trait that's headcanon for a lot of people in communities that create content (fanfics, fancomics, etc) all across the Internet. It's why Jason is nowadays showing that white steak so much in elseworlds; it's mostly a fanon thing, even if it was a one-time wonder in the "canon". This webtoon draws a lot from fan-canon.



    @Jackal: I don't remember Tim drinking tons of coffee in RR, but I don't know; it's been a while :/. I picture him more like a cocoa guy.

    I'm curious if anyone has taken the time to really look into the origins of these fanfic characterizations. With Duke it's a pretty straight line because he's so new but I'm curious how the perception of the characters changed in such a way that would produce these interpretations.
