Batmisfits vs Batcrew by jbramx2 Batmisfits vs Batcrew by jbramx2
Like all dysfunctional families, there will be a few black sheep.

The Batfamily is no different. XD;

Anyways, I really wanted to draw Batman with all his sidekicks and son. >>;

On the right-hand side we got Batman, Nightwing and Robin.

On the lelf-hand side, we got Cass, Jason and Damian, who I affectionately call the Batmisfits for not exactly fitting in with the Batclan, but are in some shape or form, related to or part of it.

From top to bottom:

Pretty asian girl is Cassandra Cain, aka the last batgirl, Age: 19-20.
She was Batman's most loyal female sidekick, until she went off on her own to search for her long lost mother. She found her, fought her, and decided to give up the Batgirl mantle and wander the world as a girl named "Cain."

Afterwards, she was drugged by Slade and made into a cheesy Bond Villainess who tried to turn Robin to the dark side. *facepalm* Robin was able to give her an antidote and bring her back to her senses. But she was pissed and vowed to kill Slade. When she couldn't, she disappeared. current status: Unknown.

Second is Jason Todd, aka Robin II and now the Red Hood. Age: 20-21
A brat who was found stealing the tires off the batmobile, was taken in by Batman who was impressed by his spunk and later trained to be Robin. Eventually, he too went off to search for his long-lost mother, tried to save her, ended up beaten and blown up by the Joker. Dead for almost 20 years of comic book history until last year(?). Due to retarded writing, he was brought back from the dead and became a nutjob killing all bad people in various violent ways.

Current status: is on a long world-traveling journey through the 52 alternative universes in search of Ray Palmer (aka the Atom) who is believed to be the key to saving the multiverse (basically, all of existance). He's accompaning Donna Troy (aka Wonder Girl I), Kyle Rayner (youngest Green Lantern, aka Ion) and Bob (dude that dragged them all together solely because they're actually not supposed to be alive, but are and so are entitled to save all the worlds in existance).

The child is Damian Wayne son of Talia al Ghul and Bruce Wayne, aka Batman. Age: 8-14 yrs old? First appearance he's 8-10 yrs. Latest he looks 11-12. And on a future cover of Robin, he looks 14-16! He's probably 8-10 but his mom or the league are aging him for some reason.

The kid's a brat who was genetically modified to be perfect and trained since birth by the League of Assasins. He really wants to be Robin and help his dad, Batman. Problem is he's not afraid of killing people, including the current Robin. ^^;
I'm kinda happy with how he turned out. He's just a lost little boy who wants to make his daddy happy, even if his daddy doesn't like him. ^^;

Current status: on the run with his mother, from crazy members of the League who are trying to use his body to ressurect his dead grandpa, Ras al Ghul. ^^;


Now on to the actual Batcrew, Top to bottom:

Bruce Wayne, aka Batman. If you don't know who he is by now...you've been living under a rock. XD; The guys been around for decades, fighting crime in Gotham City. ^^; I'm actually happy I got him right on the first try. :3 he came out just as I wanted him to. The guy's somewhere in his mid-30's to late 30's
Current Status: er...still fighting crime in Gotham City, working on the Outsiders, JLA and chasing after uh...the League of Assasins? (I think?)


Next is Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing and the first Robin.
Age: mid 20's. I'll guesstimate 26 yrs old.
I hope ya'll know his story by now. He's the only Robin that's been animated or shown in the movies. Yup, he's the Robin in Teen titans too. I'm happy with how he turned out. I wanted to draw a beautifully handsome Nightwing. XD; But slightly older than Jason. (doesn't get why the artists are drawing Jason and Dick as the same age...there's gotta be at least a 5 yr age difference...)

Current status: uh...not sure. I lost track. I think he's fighting crime in New York City now.

Finally, Tim Drake, aka Robin III.
Age: 17.
After discovering Nightwing and Batman's true identities, he tried to persuade Batman to LIGHTEN UP (since Jason had died, batman had become darker/more violent) In the end, he took up the mantle of Robin and trained his ass off to be better than all previous Robins. I'd say Batman has lightened up...problem is...Tim's gotten darker. ^^; Well, Batman adopted Tim and now they're more like son and father. It's sweet but...creepy sometimes. XD;

If Dick was the Original, cheerful, acrobatic Robin and Jason was the hardcore, moody, tough Robin, then Tim is the intelligent, no-nonsense, nerdy Robin. XD So I tried to draw him not as a tough guy, but as a nice smart guy. Not sure I succeeded. But at least I got his current hairstyle right.

Current Status: erm...fighting some of his own rogues? Supporting Batman? uh...leading the Teen Titans and fighting other world's versions of his dead friends? This kid needs to stick in school. No wonder he's gonna snap soon. -_-;

I sketched these out at work. ^^; yay for my second submitted American comics fanart. ^^;

These characters, unfortunately, belong to DC comics and Warner Brothers, and editor Didio can crap on them as long as he's in charge. =_= *sighs*

wow, you're pretty accurate in describing their pasts :iconsaluteplz:
but, I think you should know that Dickie-bird is not in NY, the city he's responsible for is called Bludhaven. And Tim grew up to be Red Robin, AKA "Swan Queen" (seriously you have got to check out that bizarro costume of his...ugh :iconjustnoplz: :iconnooplz:) BTW, that drawing of yours, is GORGEOUS!! :iconlachoirplz:

Tim Drake was in the 90's Batman cartoon, when they changed the animation. So Greysons no the only robin t be animated.

Like the style. Really good. Obviously a lot of things are happening in the comics. I like all the characters here and I really think that Cassandra, Damian and (yes, even Jason) are trying to make the best of their lives. Even though they have made bad decisions in their lives.

They all have their own looks: determined, brave, innocent. All the emotions well played. The only thing that I don't really like is Bruce's hair. Sorry, but it just doesn't scream 'Bruce' if you get my drift. And I think Damian looks a bit weird to me cause you have him looking innocent than the usual angry face he has. But still, very good ;)

Not to be rude, but Tim Drake was animated. I think the show was called Gotham Knights, and Tim was Robin and Dick was Nightwing.

Oh yeah, the Jason-Lite. He had Jason's background and some of his personality too, but Tim Drake's name. I forgot to mention that, thanks for pointing it out. I was mostly going on by what was on television at the time (The Batman cartoon and Teen Titans...both featuring Dick Grayson Robin).

Dude, ILOVE THIS! Bruce/dick look freaking awsome, just like how I think they should look. Damian is cute and sort of innocnet in a way i think he sould be - he's a misguided kid,no an evil assassion as some writers forget.
Jason is coool too
Just Cass.......
I didn't recognize her until I read the bottem - she actully looks more like Steph with her long hair, cass wears her's short. If it was steph that I be complete blown away cau it an awasome pictur eof her - I just don't think it looks anything like cass, sorry.

Thank you! I love Damian and I understand he's a product of his environment. heh, thank you again.

You know, I totally understand why some folks don't recognize her. At the time I drew this, she did have long hair (when she got drugged/brainwashed) so I was basing it off of that at the time, since I figured she'd keep her long hair (she didn't, which is okay). And I failed to make her hair dark on top of that. Also I made her looked more mixed than artists tend to draw her (her dad is white afterall).
I have drawn Steph before (a lot actually, just never got around to posting it on DA) and I usually give her wavy hair and rounder eyes and thinner eyebrows. But with Cass I give her more asian features (ie. almond shaped eyes, thick dark eyebrows, round lips, thick straight hair). For a better picture of Cass, you can check out my Dev ID. I drew an older version of her, but its still her (not me!)

hm, someday I gotta post a pic of those two...

While I appreciate everything about this particular picture, I am so very fond of how you have created their various hair styles.

While it clearly goes without saying - you are a most gifted artist.

I will be studying your technique in an attempt to better that of my own. Thank you for sharing your artwork with the world of DA. *Gentle expression*

*Warm smile* Thank you, so very much, for the kind words and offering of assistance. Your Western style is so very unique, and very defined. I will be studying it in hopes of learning from it, to better my own works.

I apologize for my horribly tardy response to your reply; I hardly get on DA anymore. I've been so busy with work and the changing of the seasons. I hope this year has been treating you well. Were you interested, it would be nice to converse with you sometime, perhaps over IM? If not, that's just fine. I'd like to pick your brain about inking.

Best wishs,

^^ I'm not sure if this has been answered, but the artists at DC keep drawing Jason 'that old' looking (for lack of a better term) because (apparently) when he was brought back to be whats-his-names sleeper agent, he was brought back in an aged body so now(according to DC) he actually *older* than Dick is.

Thank you so much for:

1) Drawing Cass so that she actually looks Asian
2) Drawing Jason so that he looks younger than Dick
3) Drawing Damian, full stop!

It drives me nuts that he's not being more effectively used. Batman has a son. I don't think he's likely to let Talia just keep control of him and drive Damian even FURTHER insane!

Then again, considering what happened to Jason, Bruce might not think he's quite fit to be a father either.

I love this comment so much! XD Thank you! (could've sworn I had responded to it...I'm sorry!!)

*nods nods in full agreement*

Well, it looks like Tony Daniel (writer/artist of Battle for the Cowl) is going to do something with Damian finally. [link]

IGN Comics: Let's talk about some other character. Damian – we saw from Grant's Batman #666 that Damian might indeed one day end up as Batman. Where does Damian stand when Cowl begins as far as his motivations and desires are concerned?

Tony : Damian believes that he's the heir to the Wayne fortune and all that comes with it. You already saw him take the Batmobile for a ride. He might be overstepping his boundaries because he feels like he's entitled. He's more of a pest and feels like it and maybe overcompensates by stirring up trouble to feel important. But we're going to see some real character development with him.

(Also according to teaser picture for BftC, it looks like Damain's going to be keeping Hush on a leash...XD )
