The Outsiders was an orphan gang in Gotham City, before being taken in by Batman and Alfred Pennyworth.

History

The Outsiders consisted of three homeless orphan kids called Dickie, Jason and Little Tim. They were made to rob people of Gotham City by Big Bill Dust, but were eventually freed from his control by Batman, who refrained from assaulting them even after they tried attacking him, and broke Bill's knee to assure them he won't come after them again, before telling them to find Sister Leslie who will give them shelter. After hearing the scream of a woman, he told them to get off the streets.

Jason later tried pickpocketing Alfred Pennyworth, but was caught. Dickie chastized him for stealing during the funeral of Sister Leslie, who had sheltered them and was against stealing. Alfred upon learning they were just a bunch of poor orphans let them go and handed them a card to contact him whenever he needed a job done. When Batman was imprisoned in Blackgate Penitentiary, he had them deliver the Batcycle, which was hidden in a crate, to an alley. Jason suggested stealing it, but the others rejected such a proposition.

Batman soon showed up and took the crate, before praising them for their job and telling them to go. After his fight with Jack the Ripper, Alfred and the kids arrived at the Gotham World Fair in a horse carriage to rescue him and Selina Kyle. Alfred decided to take the three kids in and have Bruce take over their custody.
