i feel like at one point in time, bruce had to hold an intervention for his kids to emphasize WE HAVE CODE NAMES FOR A REASON because dick keeps calling damian “baby bat” when they’re out in the field, jason keeps calling dick “dickwad” and tim “replacement” and damian “demon” so on and so forth.
bruce’s breaking point was when during an all-hands-on-deck alien invasion situation, conner yelled “babe! behind you!” when an alien was coming at tim. now, this wouldn’t have gotten to bruce as much if, after tim took down the alien, kon hadn’t flown over to tim, kissed him while the fighting continued to rage behind them, then shouted “you’re really hot when you kick ass!” as he flew back into battle.
so bruce held an intervention.
the supers were in attendance as well because (1) the babe incident, (2) jon keeps calling damian “d” on the field, which leads bruce to (3) clark needs to teach his damn kid to use HIS kid’s damn codenames.
the intervention kinda backfired though. as soon as bruce started chewing them out, jason interjected with an itemized list of the times bruce had called him “jaybird” or “jaylad” in the field. dick joined in, claiming bruce had called him “chum” in the field more times than he could count, and apparently it wasn’t too unusual for bruce to call tim or damian “son” or “kiddo” during patrol
eventually, the intervention that bruce had planned turned into his kids roasting him while the supers sat back and watched
