The Bat-Family is back for some more laughs and feels in Batman: Wayne Family Adventures #25-#31. A new chapter is released on WebToon every Thursday, and they’re great if you need to take a break from your day for just a couple of minutes.
The Kents Are So Much Nicer
Catwoman has finally been introduced! The Bat and the Cat chapter is full of beautiful art and their adorable relationship and mentally scarring the family because they can hear all of the flirting occurring on Gotham’s rooftops. Which is the complete opposite of when Tim invites Conner Kent (Superboy), Bart Allen (Impulse), and Cassie Sandsmark (Wonder Girl) to the Batcave to watch movies on the very expensive Bat computer. The teenagers with super speed have probably never moved so fast! Batman must’ve been a terrifying driving teacher, because, as Spoiler tells Signal when he’s learning to use the Batmobile:
We don’t fire missiles in the Batcave anymore.
The relationship between the brothers plays a big part in the latest chapters too. Fighting for the front seat, spending some secret or quality time together, or cataloging a list of strengths and weaknesses, they bond and help each other through their troubles. As for Dick, his troubles are knowing how to prioritize his personal and vigilante lives. It’s a good thing that Jason (yes you read that right) is there to talk him through it all.
I would also like to point out that Damian lists emotions, crowbars, and dying as Jason’s weaknesses, and to me that’s absolutely hilarious.
There’s something about seeing a softer side to the Bat-Family that really draws me in. Seeing them support each other through thick and thin and really stick to that “no one hurts my sibling but me” rule, really humanizes this family of vigilantes in a way that nothing else does. This is ironic since they’re all completely human. For Dick, however, not only is it about balancing his personal and hero lives but also trusting that someone in the family will be there to put a stop to a crime. He doesn’t need to shoulder everything by himself. That’s what family’s for right? After all, justice runs in this one.
