Alfred Pennyworth is letting Batman know he’s not cool with the hero turning what should have been a fun birthday present for Robin into a secret reconnaissance mission. In Robin & Batman #2, Alfred is delighted to see Robin have a good time visiting the Justice League and meeting other young heroes.
