Alfred Pennyworth

Before he was the man behind the Batman, the imperturbable Wayne family butler Alfred Pennyworth raised the orphaned Bruce Wayne following the murder of his parents.  Now he performs the dual role of minding what’s left of the Wayne estate while aiding Bruce in his vigilante work as Batman where he puts his Special Forces background to use.  But it’s Alfred’s dry sarcasm and biting insight that ground both the man and the Batman, and his many skills—ranging from cutting-edge technologies to combat medicine—that make him the Dark Knight’s staunchest ally.
