YMMV: Batman and Sons
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In-Universe. In "Ace in the Hole", when Alfred admits to being responsible for the death of the original Ace (for which Batman blamed himself; he actually was responsible for the second one dying), Bats immediately cracked a The Butler Did It joke. Even Jason just stared at him at this.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Baby Terry.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Let us know if this rings a bell.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Jason Todd was one of the least-liked Robins, to the point where fans actually voted to have him killed off. However, this version of him seems to have gone over much better with readers.
    • The softening his character got from Chaotic Neutral (at best) to merely Chaotic Good but selfish and as a middle child acting out for attention helps.
  • The Woobie: Cassandra Cain/Batgirl. We only see her for one page in "Rivalry, Part One", but it's all anyone needs to feel sorry for her.
