Roughly a page's worth from World's Finest #297, August 1983, not my scans. For reasons not entirely clear to me, having to do with events in JLA and Batman and the Outsiders apparently, Batsy is in a temper. How dare Supes save his life! How dare he beat him to doing-good-deeds punch! And pretty soon, the boys are on the outs.

Someone was asking for interaction between Jason and Alfred pre-death, so it reminded me that I was going to make a post on Jason in Batman #413.
