* DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: Catwoman left Terry because she thought that he'd be better off with Batman.


Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Superman usually plays this role when he has to mediate between several hot-tempered, easily-offended heroes.

'''Tommy:''' All I asked [was] if he wanted some fruit... [[labelnote:Didn't get it?]]In the comics canon, Obsidian is gay. Adding to the confusion is the Lantern kids are still tiny preschoolers in this incarnation, and that Canon!Tom never showed any inclination to tease people about orientation.[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

* DudeNotFunny: InUniverse, when [[spoiler: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 TheButlerDidIt joke.]] Even Jason just stared at him at this.


Inspired by the comic ''TinyTitans'', the-dark-cat/The Black Cat not only portrays Batman as a superhero/crime fighting detective, but also as a single father trying to raise his four sons: Dick, Jason, and Tim (the three most famous Robins), and a baby named [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond Terry]]. The comic is not only funny and adorable, but also succeeds at poking fun at topical points in comics, such as the Dark Knight, Batman's 70th Anniversary, and Creator/GrantMorrison. It also occasionally features other DC superheroes and their respective sidekicks/kids.

* BullyingADragon: In the "Rivalry" storyline, Superman tells Lois how Batman always messed with him as a boy, passing it off as him being "such a kidder." When Lois accuses him of being in denial, Superman answers, "It keeps me from killing him, Lois."
