In the new Batman: Earth One written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Gary Frank coming out next year this is the Alfred you can expect:

BAD IDEA!


The series seems to be like an Ultimate Batman but still this does not please me.

In the old Batman history Alfred came into Batman's service when he was an adult. It was when Batman Year One came into being that he was a father figure to Bruce. After looking at this tougher looking Alfred I think they might go that root instead of the fatherly take. I don't like calling it  the DCU Ultimate line the Ultimate line has much more titles and even mini series these are a series of one shot graphic novels.  Beside DC has had out of continuity stories before the old Multiverse the  "Imaginary stories" the elseworlds this looks like just a return of that.
