    I've been asking the same thing. The mission statement introduced in JLA Rebirth isn't really jiving with the actual series. There's really no logical reason why Batman needed to create his own separate Justice League if they're not doing anything radical or different from the regular JL.

    And what's worse: I don't even think the existence of this JLA has even been mentioned in any of Batman's other books. Like, no one in the Justice League has said anything about the fact that Batman just up and created his own Justice League. With Lobo!

    In JLA, Batman says that he formed that team to deal with threats "on the ground", while the JL is there to deal with threats "from the sky". Allegorical, but I took it to mean the JLA deals with the smaller, less cosmic threats and the JLA takes care of the bigger matters

    Yea, bingo. There's a distinction, sufficient or not is another question of course.

    He tells Black Canary in JLA Rebirth, "I've started something new. A different team. Mortal. Not gods."

    ......Then he recruits Lobo.

    Interesting ideas, it just has the wrong character in the lead. It should be a character with their roots in multiversal ideas and/or time travel to be spearheading all these events, not Batman. I know why he realistically ($$$), but it still doesn't make sense narratively. He may be overused at this point in regards to timeline wonkiness, but the Flash would make way more sense. Or Rip Hunter. Or Booster.

    Because the Batbook and the JusticeLeague books are run by different people who don't communicate.

    Also, it's a Scott Snyder project and he has declared Batman as his fave. Not just money. This is Snyder's baby, culminating off of buildup in his Batman run.

    True, true. Still though, I'll never be able to buy Batman in this role. Just my personal opinion. Its just not my thing with a character like Batman. As generally lukewarm as I am with Snyder, I didn't like it when Morrison did it either and I am a bigger Morrison fan. Just feels forced to me and always will.

    John Byrne did something like this already and nobody liked it.

    This is going to be a FUN ride. So much happens in this issue, with so many twists. Batman has put together an Outsiders team that is traversing the multiverse to learn more about this mystery.

    And Batman has one of the Jokers (we know there are more than one) in a secret cave in his secret cave (you have to read the issue).

    Batman asks Mister Miracle (YES!) to open a door in Superman's Fortress that he had Superman put in for him and when MM sees what is inside, he looks scared...because the room holds the Anti-Monitor tower from Crisis On Infinite Earths!

    Batman and Mister Terrific also go in another secret room and Batman says it's time to let "him" out. The picture shows a large, metal container with red, yellow and black stripes. It kind of reminds me of Captain Atom's Charlton costume. I don't know if that's who is inside or not. But that was my first thought.

    There's Dark Mattter, Nth Metal and more. LOTS more!
    Thanks for that write-up. I loved the issue, but it left me a little confused since I have never read Crisis on infinite earths". I also had to look those characters up, but the story has me super intrigued.

    Thanks. I think it would be cool though to see the Charlton characters appear in this. But I'm just very thankful to DC for having Mister Miracle in it, no matter how short it was.

    When Batman tells you to do something, you do it.

    Does the feeling about Batman go back to like Cosmic Odyssey too in 1988? I feel very differently. Seen Batman in so many different types of stories with headline and focus.
