Timetoread September 29, 2015 Share September 29, 2015 Yeah, I didn't get the firing scene either. Bruce can fire him from being the butler but he can't fire him being his legal guardian. Alfred really needs be a little more authoritative with Bruce. He's like 12 he doesn't get to make all the decisions, he's not legally old enough to do so. That was just his temper and Alfred playing along with it. Bruce is an interesting case as a child. He is very young but is such a serious kid who has suffered the worst possible tragedy. On top of that, his name means EVERYTHING in this universe and he's trying to bear the load of it all. I do wish, like you though, that Alfred would put him in his place every once in a while. Discipling a child isn't about beating them down when they are bad, it is about showing them their boundaries. If you are a good parent or guardian, it is safe inside those boundaries and the kid can relax mentally. Baby Batman, psychologically at his core, is probably most in need of feeling safe and protected. 4 Link to comment
