Color me unimpressed on the Alfred as a muscled ex-military.
The ex-military part is more or less canon - he's supposed to have had some paramedic training during "the" war. (Which War? WWII or WWI or some other? ). It's the making him muscular and changing him to look like a Nick Fury wannabe that makes me go ugh!!
When you see current Alfred take care of business, you go "Yeah! Alfred is the man". But if this guy did it - what's the big deal? He already looks like Sgt. Rock!
And what's with the underoo-hate? It's tradition I tell you!
