Alfred Pennyworth has been one of the most prominent supporting characters in ব্যাটম্যান since the early 40's. At first, ব্যাটম্যান was on his own, but he quickly got Robin as a sidekick and Alfred as a butler. Like the Batcave, it's been reported that Alfred was created for the original movie serial. He quickly became a character in the comics. Aside from ব্যাটম্যান himself, Alfred is the only character to appear in all of the official live action ব্যাটম্যান films. Commissioner Gordon was also in all of them, until 2016's ব্যাটম্যান V সুপারম্যান excluded him.
