There's a scene where Orion says he would never attend some honorary event for The Flash and Batman just looks at Orion without a word... and Orion, intimidated, agrees to go. To me, that's just WAY too over the top. Bruce Timm basically made Batman God-like with every bit of luck in his favor and dumbed down all the heroes around him. Flash is usually fast enough to take out one super villain but not two, Superman gets floored by car bombs or a rocket launcher, etc... but Batman is always on the ball and outdoing everybody.
I love Batman too much to care a lot, but it does get old.
YES THANK YOU! That's exactly what I've been saying in multiple threads including this one. I miss that (BTAS) Bruce Wayne.
Come to think of it this is why I enjoy Rino Romano's Bruce Wayne. I wish his Batman had a more different voice than his Bruce and, I think I could have enjoyed his Bruce/Batman more if the episodes were just as engaging as BTAS.
