* "Joker's Favor." Everyman Charlie Collins is having a bad day, so he curses out a guy who cut him off in traffic[[note]]here's a secondary, smaller Moment of Awesome involved with this one: When Joker chases the guy, he goes completely under the speed limit and ''uses his turn signals'' all with a big Joker grin on his face[[/note]]. Unfortunately, [[BullyingADragon that guy is the Joker]]. The Joker follows Charlie home, threatening the poor guy and his family, with Charlie pleading for mercy the entire time. The Joker agrees to leave him alone, in exchange for a favor to be cashed in at any time of his choosing. Cut to a few years later. Charlie's lived with the specter of the Joker over his head- and in spite of changing his name and relocating his family, the clown still finds him and calls in his favor, holding his family as collateral. Said favor turns out to be a suicide bombing in a police convention (he didn't even need to be there, Joker just felt like blowing him up, too). Here's where the awesome kicks in: Charlie first manages to [[MacGyvering construct a makeshift Bat-Signal out of items in a broom closet]]. Then, after the Bat arrives and chases the Joker out into the open, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8C4-SrlptE Charlie confronts him in the alley]], holding one of Joker's bombs:

*** Even better? Warren was bragging that he'll "get justice, [[ExactWords the best justice money can buy]]." [[GoneHorriblyRight He never said it was justice in HIS favor]].

*** Sadly, it doesn't take. In the comics based on the series, the Ventriloquist gets a job as a puppeteer for a children's television show host and one of his co-stars decides to reintroduce Scarface into his life for kicks. Scarface kills his other puppet friend, leaving the poor Ventriloquist cradling Scarface in his arms and declaring that he would never escape.

* In "Off Balance", Batman has to get himself and Talia through a room full of booby traps while they're both affected by Vertigo's hallucinations. He pulls it off flawlessly...how? By KEEPING HIS EYES CLOSED and relying on his other senses.

* In the Batman light episode "Showdown", Jonah Hex manages to destroy Ra's al Ghul's airship, defeat his army of mercenaries, and defeat Arkady Duvall ([[spoiler:Ra's's son]]) in a sword fight, all by himself. And all of it to capture Duvall and bring him to justice for his assault on a woman back east, instead of being a railroad spy as they assume. What makes it even more awesome is that Hex is in his ''[[BadassGrandpa sixties]]'', and does all this with his bare fists, a knife, and whatever [[StuffBlowingUp explosives]] he finds, including the airship's ''own cannons''.
