|"I'm not cleaning that up."|
Manservant to the Wayne family, Alfred became parent and guardian young Bruce Wayne after his parents were gunned down one night in Gotham. Of course, the little boy did grow up to be a masked vigilante, so maybe it's best if we don't linger too long on Alfred's parenting skills. . .
Alfred is also a skilled computer programmer and engineer, maintaining and often re-building much of the crime-fighting gadgetry used by Batman in his nightly exploits.
With all of the things he does to maintain Wayne Manor, the Batcave, and the Batman himself, I hope that Alfred gets a really good 401K plan.
Incidentally, the latest cinematic incarnation of Alfred, Sir Michael Caine, turns 78 today. Happy bloody birthday, sir!
