Happy Father’s Day to all those wonderful dads; to the men out there that work those overtime hours so that their little ones can have not only what they need, but some of the things they want too; to those dads that take vacation days so they can take their kids fishing, camping, etc.; to the men that play with LEGO®’s and action figures with their kids and that teach them how to read, write, and ride a bike; to those men that do all those little things that would take me forever to list and have a smile on their face the entire time they do them, this is YOUR day!
His son, Damian Wayne, is the often misunderstood and rebellious son of Bruce Wayne & Talia al Ghul; trained by the League of Assassins, Damian learned to murder at a very young age, which proves for a tumultuous relationship with his father who lives my a strict no-kill code. My favorite series, Batman & Robin, is equal parts action and watching the father/son dynamic evolve. You see Bruce in a completely new light, one where he is not in control and struggles to teach his son right from wrong. The reason he is my favorite superhero father is his willingness to work through Damian’s issues with him, a trait I believe all father’s should possess. He is quoted saying he just wants him to be the best Damian Wayne he CAN be. That understanding amazes me.
Now that I’ve told you my favorite superhero father (and a bit of why), I would love to hear who yours is! If you’d like to read more about Bruce & Damian’s relationship, which I HIGHLY recommend, you can #getyourfix for Batman & Robin at Cosmic Comics! in Las Vegas.
