Default Re: Who else hated Batman's portrayal in JUSTICE LEAGUE (Timm)?

You know I agree DV. I've seen every JLU episode on Boomerang but now that I think about it a few things just bugged the crap out of me. The Cadmus storyline just went on and on. While the show is called Justice League Unlimited most of the episodes still dealt with the five or six of the main members. Superman was too much of a bad ass, and to think this is what some Supes fans want to see from the character. I can't stand John Stewart and Shayera, I'm just glad the writers somewhat got away from the focus on their relationship.

But yeah I agree Saturn you brought up a very valid point about Batman's demeanor. I've noticed the change ever since TNBA, and in JL/JLU at times ("Dead Reckoning" the Deadman episode) he also seems like the token "genius" of the league. (you know the one who knows everything about everything, the one who everyone goes to when they need some information.)

The thing is Batman never really had a say in the Leagues actions I would even go as far to say that The Question raised more questions (pun intended) and doubt in the League than Batman ever did. I doubt the Justice Lords would have ever been around if Batman would have just intervened at some point.
