alfred is the strongest character in the entire dc universe.
This is what I love about Alfred, he lives through it all, he sees it all, he’s the one that is on the sidelines waiting. He has to wait, he can’t go out on the front lines and fight with the rest of them because the Batfam need a foundation. They need grounding. They need something reliable to hold them together when they get back to the cave after a long night dealing with some of the most horrifying criminals in ‘verse.
They need Alfred.
He is their rock. He waits, silently, always there in the background with a word of advice, a gentle hand on the shoulder, a comforting presence at their back. He’s just there for them. All of them. And he puts up with the mission, with the falling outs, with the fights, the broken bones, the nightmares, the deaths. He takes all that on and stays strong for the family.
