I love Jason being full of angsty daddy issues as much as the next person, but you know what beats all of that? Jason taking full advantage of the fact that Bruce would crumble like a leaf at any positive interactions Jason had with him. This includes calling him ‘dad’ when he wants to get away with things, playful banter that borders on sitcom levels of cheesy affection when he wants to distract him, and at one point, calling himself Batman’s son and getting a massive intimidation point over some villains. Jason knows damn well that Bruce is soft like putty and can manipulate him into anything he wants with the barest amount of familial affection. Dick is berating him for being an asshole, Tim is salty that its only Jason who can get away with this, Damian is appalled at how easily it works, Steph and Barbara find the whole thing hilarious, and Cass is taking bets on how long it lasts. Its glorious.
“I’m sure he’s [Rupert Grint] going to be an amazing dad. As soon as I found out, I texted him. I’m incredibly happy for him. He and Georgia have been together for a while. It’s really exciting. It is crazy to think because it’s in my head. It still feels like we’ve basically just met and we are about 16 years old.”
