What can't Bruce Wayne do?


Recommended Posts

According to Batman: Year One, a 25-year-old Bruce Wayne returned to Gotham City after a 12-year absence. Meaning, he left his home to start his crime-fighting training at age 13. During those years, of course, Bruce learned the stealth of a ninja, the brutality of bare-knuckle fighting, various forms of swordplay, all kinds of criminal investigation techniques, a myriad of languages, gadgetry, as well as fighter-jet piloting, race-car driving, and mediation / healing techniques.


But what didn't he learn? What basic, everyday-life tasks and chores does Bruce literally have no idea how to do?

Alfred and The Waynes would have taught him some things, but I can't imagine Bruce knows how to:

  • Change the cat litter.
  • Pay bills.
  • Take care of a baby.
  • Make an omelette.
  • Brew a pot of coffee.
  • Hard boil eggs.
  • Clean windows.
  • Iron.
  • Unclog a sink.
  • Make fresh orange juice.

Granted, he has Alfred for a lot of that, but these are basic skills he would have missed learning while preparing for his vigilantism.

What else should be added to the list?
