"A 'generation' or two of Batman fans have grown up thinking of Alfred as the faithful old family retainer -- this is how Frank Miller portrayed him in THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS and BATMAN: YEAR ONE, for instance -- but it has not always been so. In fact, Alfred did not join the Batman family until the mid 1940s, after Dick Grayson had become Robin. In that story we learned it was Alfred's father, Jarvis, who had been the old family retainer (and would have been the butler and general factorum when Bruce's parents were killed).

"In order to address this within the 'rules' I set myself in GENERATIONS, I decided that I would have it both ways. Whenever we saw young Bruce in flashback (the only way we have seen him so far in G1 and G2), it would be Alfred who was the faithful manservant, thus installing him retroactively as had become the case in the comics. But (as in G3) when we saw young Bruce in 'real time' it would be Jarvis Pennyworth who was the Wayne Mansion major domo.

"Confused yet?"
