What Would Alfred Be Like Without Batman?


Bruce Wayne could not be Batman without Alfred. Not only a father figure and mentor, but even more of an essential sidekick that any Robin has ever been. But what would Alfred by like if he didn’t have to be Batman/Bruce Wayne’s faithful servant?

With Bruce Wayne retired and wanting to live a much simpler life, Scott Snyder mused what Alfred would be like on his own:

"I always feel like Alfred would live happily if Bruce was retired or Bruce left. I think Alfred would become an ultimate fighter or a painter or whatever he wanted to do — something totally unexpected. Maybe he would repair old books. I don’t think Alfred has figured out what he would do if Bruce Wayne didn’t need him. There is definitely a series there for anybody that has no sales expectations at DC. [Laughs] “Alfred.” Or maybe it’s “Pennyworth.” It’s Alfred going to Venice and just living his life."

I think I would read an Alfred series. Read the rest of the interview over at CBR where Snyder & Greg Capullo talk about Batman’s newest villain, Mr. Bloom & more.
