Superman, I noticed, is oftentimes in the episodes/movie shown to be somewhat brutish and unthinking, barging into situations and then needing Batman's help to get out of them. I counted a few times when Superman is only given moments to shine when there's something too big for Batman to punch and defeat.
two reasons for this imo.
1. Timm's superman for all it's celebration isn't all that great(unless he's dealing with Mxy). Especially in JLU.
2. Anyone facing the Joker for the first time will look really dumb next to batman, that was almost the point. I think if WF can avoid joker(and they will), this should NOT be as big a problem.
