I never realized how obnoxious an example of forcing everything into the Bat-paradigm this was.

That being said, this story gave us Alfred interacting with the guardians as Bruce's secretary, which i find kind of amusing.

Did the Guardians splash green chemicals on Barry? Dicks!

This is a weird and fun Elseworlds. Lazy costume revamps though.

And then later...
"Hold on, you scoured the entire planet, and you only found one forensic scientist?"
"All the others were missing, kidnapped by super-villains, had been killed by science gone wrong, or became the victim of their own hubris and turned into crazed monsters."
"... huh."
"Yup. That's what I said."

...that weren't using them and recruited them to be Green Lanterns on the basis that 3 super people with rings should be able to deal with one guy who has a ring and no other powers. And if that guy weren't Batman, magically protected by Editorial Mandate, the Guardians would be right.

Barry Allen had no powers UNTIL the accident, the only reason his metagene was activated was the lightning strike and chemical explosion.

From: [personal profile] icon_uk
The fact the lightning that struck Barry is emerald green sort of argues against that, the implication is that they caused the "accident".
From: [personal profile] 7dialsmystery
I thought the green was chemical goop but, yeah, it looks like green lightning.

There was a "Batman - Ninja Princess". It was in a Superman elseworlds, though.

Not in an Elseworld, but IIRC there was one issue of JLA where Batman and Wonderwoman use some psychic mindlink or something to pursue the potential avenues of a relationship with each other. One of them has Diana becoming Batwoman, and becoming even more brutal and Grimdark than Bruce (to the point where he rips off the arm of a guy who was beating his wife, Batman is like... "Eh, that was a tad extreme, come on Alfred is making dinner) (Or that might have been a possible future of their kids, I'm unsure).

Not a surprise, Bruce as a general rule does not play well with others.

Also its amusing that Sinestro became the Joker stand in of this universe, but unlike in Speeding bullets they didn't clownify him, he just put on a purple suit and starting laughing a lot.
