Really Cool Scenes - Batman with a match

This was the scene that really got Grant Morrison's JLA run going with a bang.

Batman is surrounded by a bunch of the Hyperclan, the villains who had made short work of the rest of the Justice League, and they were recently crowing about how weak Batman was, and how he could not do anything to stop them.

Well, in JLA #3, Batman made his first appearance as Grant Morrison's "Batgod," as Batman does something the rest of the League couldn't do - take out the Hyperclan.

And it all came down to a match.

A match and a ring of gasoline.

For Batman had figured out their weakness - they were Martians.

Such a cool scene, showing off his detective skills AND his coolness.

This is one of the best issues of Morrison's JLA.

It's so good in fact, that I own the page three original art of this issue. It's the one where Batman breaks into the Hyperclan's stronghold saying something like:" I'm only human. They don't think I can penetrate their stronghold. They don't think I pose a threat. Wrong."

In those few captions, Morriosn not only shown that he knows how the mind of the Bat thinks, but also why he is so feared by criminals (and others). Great stuff!

"Only four of 'em, Bats? You're slowing down."

Yes, that bit with the match is the greatest Batman scene of all time.

"Ready when you are."
