During the 30 Days of Scans, many of us have said Batman's biggest flaw/drawback/etc. is when he's a jerk to other superheroes. Sometimes Batman is a jerk for a reason, sometimes just to be a jerk, sometimes because he's Batman.

So, how about some examples of Batman being a jerk to other superheroes? And if Batman is being a jerk just because he's Batman?



From INFINITE CRISIS #1.


From JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #0.

No this version is a hero and a jerk -- the two are not mutually exclusive.

Based on those two scenes, he doesn't look like he's doing or accomplishing anything dangerous or important or noble. He just looks like a control freak who keeps files on his colleagues and makes plans because he doesn't trust people that I've always seen him treat as friends. And to me, that's fairly despicable and the very opposite of heroic.

Maybe it makes sense in context. I don't know. But this is just not the Batman that I grew up with and cared about.
