I was reading Batman Legend. With three diffrent Batman stories.
This story Batman: The return of Bruce Wayne, has Batman time traveling due to Darkseid and the Justice League are trying to help him get back.
This story made me relise exactly why Batman and the Justice League never sits with me.
Batman is not super powered in anyway. He has made himself to be the peak perfect human in every way. So when I read Batman is time travleing...it seems too out of place. I then began to think about Batmans villians. They are all basicly just humans. No aliens trying to take over the world. There is science.
Killer Croc was born as he was and became a Criminal. Penguin is just a funny looking guy. Joker being the classic is just a madman.
Even the most fantasay driven villian in Batman....pales in comparison to the power the foes Superman, Wonderwoman or Green Lantern face.
So when you put all these SUPER HEROES together you now have hundreds of people that are far more powerfull than even Batmans most powerfull enemy.
Batman himself becomes super when he is with the JL. Since he is in super storylines. That it alters Batmans core.
With the same comic i have. its starts of with Batman and Robin must Die. Its not Bruce Wayne Batman. Yet its sevrel pages of no action. Instead its the Joker. How many times have we dealt with the Joker? It should be getting old. It isnt. Its the thaught provoking investigation. Trying to figure what the Jokers plan is befor its revealed. Wondering who will be manipulated by the Joker. In this case its the new Robin that is being preyed upon.
So I never like the thaught of Batman with the Justice League. Its alters the fundementals of Batman too much. How ever it is fun to have Batman completely out do all the heros.
Whats other peoples thaughts? Do you think Batman becomes a diffrent Batman when not in his own world?
