So many issues...

JLA personalities are written weird. Manhunter usually isn't so jovial. Batman calling him out for acting on his own is rich.

INSANITY, oh noes! Comic book logic means insanity = evil.

Pop Culture Logic

I don't know about where you live, but I where I live there's plenty of people who equate homeless with lazy, drug addict with violent criminal, and insane with homicidal.

The average Joe seems to be rather prejudiced against the disabled or otherwise disadvantaged.

I can handle a lot of versions of the JLA, but one where Batman, Wonder Woman, and J'Onn J'Onzz all say "the kid" instead of "the child" isn't one of them.

Having 1990s-era Harrison Ford play Batman was an interesting choice. For a minute I wondered why Hal Jordan was wearing the Batsuit.

I must have missed the stories where Green Lantern and Flash became so murder-happy.

I initially skimmed past where Flash says "it's" a cyborg and I assumed that dude was just a robot...I wonder what Victor Stone might have to say about that attitude, Wally? :P

It feels like this story doesn't quite know what a cyborg is. Reading that as a bad edit for "robot" improves things somewhat.

Though the JLA's attitudes towards intelligent robots is often one of their moral questionable stances to begin with.

Except that he was created from a combination of human DNA and biomechanical parts. How does that NOT make him a cyborg?

I dunno, but Ivo and Amazo frequently refer to him as programmable, so the League at least isn't working off a different playbook than they are.

We might need better terms here. I seem to remember that the original Terminator was given some actual organic flesh to blend in better with humanity, but it clearly wasn't essential to his makeup. You could call him a cyborg, but he doesn't seem to belong in the same category as the Six Million Dollar Man.

Mmm, true... okay, I give up, this one's just too inconsistent for me.

Uh, Wally? Cyborgs are people too. Hell, sapient robots are people too. I expect better from you. Then again, no one's really acting like themselves here. Something about how they all say 'kid' doesn't work right for me.

Well, Bruce is still a Bat-dick.
