4 Crime-fighters Right-Hand Helpers
Bruce Wayne may be the man wearing the black suit and saving the day but who bails out Batman? His butler Alfred Pennyworth, of course. Every composed, Alfred serves as Bruce Wayne’s caregiver, confidant, assistant and in some depictions as a surrogate father for the orphaned child who grows up to fight crime.
Edwin Jarvis is the original household butler of billionaire Tony Stark. But he’s seemingly been replaced as Stark’s personal assistant and household help by Pepper Potts in the new Iron Man. Gwyneth Paltrow plays the role of the patient and long-suffering right-hand woman of Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark in Iron Man 2 and 3 as well.
The crime-fighting crew in Big Hero 6 gets a little help from Fred’s butler Heathcliff (voiced by David Shaughnessy). Always composed and unperturbed, he is the epitome of a proper English manservant.
Rather than leave Kato at home to answer the door, Green Hornet takes his valet/driver along to help him fight crime. Bruce Lee played the Korean manservant in the 1960’s television show. Jay Chou played the nimble assistant in the 2011 movie The Greet Hornet opposite Seth Rogen.
