i never got why batman is in the JL especially in the new 52. The guy loves to be alone and work alone, its always weird to see him up in the watchtower chilling with the rest of the group. its probably like this because geoff is a f***ing idiot when it comes to writing bats.

They need him to be a part time member, so he can chill in his batcave more than the stupid watchtower. have him in the JL comics as much as you want but they should make it clear he is a part timer. just my opinion.

whats yours?

Yeah he's a loner with a crime fighting family that has more members than the JL itself, he's clearly not as much of a loner as you think.

This. No reason why Batman can't be in the JL

The Justice League is not McDonalds. There is no such thing as a part time position. Do you seriously expect him to leave in the middle of a battle?

*The Justice League is in deep shit against an invading super alien who has decided to call Boston his new playground, and through the uproar you can hear Batman saying , "My shift just ended" as he leaves the battle. *

He's more of a strategy guy than punch out darkseid guy like the others. i like him better when he fights well dressed maniacs with tons of hencemen than against gods and demons and things he really has no business fighting

@kingrobbstark: thats not what i meant, i was more referring to the animated series where he said on numerous occasions he was just a part time member.

They only had him say that because it made him seem like a cool loner. It didn't mean anything because he was there 24/7.

@peppeyhare: Then how was Gotham protected?

Obviously all the of the members of the justice league continued to attend to their own tasks just like they do in the comics. The justice league only gets together to fight major threats and in the show Batman was pretty much fighting with them 24/7. He wasn't really a "part time member"

@peppeyhare: Just cause he's there for major events doesn't mean he's there for everything. So if you only so up for the big fights you are a part time member.

Thanks, ULTRA

But the only fights are the major events in that show....

He protects it in Batman: The Animated series, or The Batman or in the upcoming Beware the Batman

Why would there be off camera fights when the team only gets together to fight world threatening events?
