Addendum: Sam Kane/Redbird/SwiftWhen Sam becomes a hero, he either picks the named "Redbird" out of respect for past aliases of his friends, or "Swift" to have a more unique outfit. He's still more influenced by Nightwing than his brother, Joseph; but is more often at his brother's side than at his mentor's.
If the case is he becomes Swift as a kid, his costume as a kid remains relatively unchained, with perhaps blue replacing the red.
As a teenager, Sam is officially Swift. He choose an outfit that's more like a cross between Ninja Gaiden and Bat-family armor. While most of his arms are bare, he does use reinforced gauntlets. There is a hood attached to the armor for stealth, as well as a scarf with a split end, like a swift's tale. He often brings it up to cover his mouth for stealth, but normally wears it "because it looks cool". He also wears a domino mask. The armor itself is light yet extremely durable, and is molded to Sam's body. As a growing boy, though, Sam needs to make a new set every so often and will us

Alfred: *not even turning around* Dinner is not for another hour, Master Sam.
Sam: But you're cooking already.
Alfred: This is for Master Bruce's dinner. He eats a tad "cleaner" than the rest of you.
Sam: You mean like grilled chicken, brown rice, no sweets?
Alfred: How do you know about that?
Sam: Joey used to eat like that until he took me in; which meant a lot more time on cardio for him.
Alfred: And as he isn't crimefighting at the moment, I don't think he minds not having Master Bruce's diet. He is still pretty active in his own way, but doesn't need to be primed for battle.
Sam: Yep. Umm...what are you cooking?
Alfred: It's a type of fish.
Sam comes over to where Alfred is cooking, he sees a branzino being pan-fried. He then looks a tad queasy.
Alfred: Want some?
Sam: Umm...no thanks; I don't like eating anything that still has a face on it.
Damian then walks in,

Joseph himself is plugged into several machines as he lays on a bed in the med-bay. Sam sits by his brother, holding his hand and weeping. Batman and Nightwing stand nearby, watching the screens.

Nightwing: --A metahuman, you're sure?
Batman: Heightened strength and speed, increased stamina, incredibly fast reflexes? Seems Joseph has some secrets even he doesn't know about.
Nightwing: That would explain his intelligence. Must have been the first time his powers manifested.
Batman: And now they're killing him....
Sam: Joey...please wake up....
Robin: >TT< Stop your damn crying, if he wakes up, he'll wake up!
Sam: I'll cry if I want to!
Robin: Listen you little--!

Mr. Sandman, Send Me A DreamThere is a realm outside reality, where your wildest imaginations and your darkest nightmares live. Here there be two feuding brothers, and their gargoyles, a sentient meadow known as Fiddler's Green, a loyal butler, a wisecracking raven, and more.Mr. Sandman, Send Me A Dream1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
In the center of this realm, behind gates of horn and ivory, stands a beautiful castle made of the purest dream-stuff. Imagine a much grander, and far more gothic, Cinderella's Castle.
And in the ornate throne room sits the realm's master. His hair and robe are dark as night, and his eyes are filled with stars. Around his neck is a chain with a massive ruby. Attached to his belt is a bag filled with magical sand. And perched on an armrest is a weird shaped helm that is a cross between a hummingbird and a gas mask.
His name is Morpheus, or Dream.
Others simply call him "The Sandman".
Nearby were seven niches, each with a symbol for his siblings and himself. They are the Endless, aspects of the universe such as Destiny, Desire, Destruction, an
