* Why Ma'alefa'ak and Star Sapphire would care about Savage's plans since they have the power to travel across the universe and take over any planet they want?

** Mal seemed to like Vandal Savage's style and had no problems with his plan. Star just wanted revenge on Hal, so neither of them had any reason to leave
* It bothers me that Superman and GL both seem faster than the Flash. They both are clearly dozens of times faster than light , just going by their space shenanigans. Flash clearly is much slower than light, considering he didn't circle the earth several times each second that he was running at top speed and the fact that ice propelled from an exploding iceberg was actually able to touch him. What gives?

** "Life" does not actually mean "life" in legal terminology; he'll probably be locked up until he appears to have redeemed himself / humanity has advanced to the point he is less of a threat / he breaks out of prison. Really they just mean "indefinitely".

** It's entirely likely that in this version of the DC universe the concepts of "property", "money", etc. didn't exist until 50K years ago. You can't accumulate wealth if it's impossible to do so.

** The implication is that he expects that if he turns evil, they'll kill him in cold blood, before he has a chance to do anything. Whether it be Supes sniping him from orbit with his heat vision (or a thrown pebble), J'onn destroying his mind, or anything of the sort, he expects them to kill him in a manner he ''can't'' retaliate to, if push comes to shove.

** Remember, Batman is often implied to be at least a little crazy himself, possibly as a result of Gotham being what it is. This may have played into some of the plans' less-thought-out aspects.

** Remember, Batman is often implied to be at least a little crazy himself, possibly as a result of Gotham being what it is. This may have played into some of the plans' less-thought-out aspects. It may also explain why he expects them to remain noble even if they turn; he may be incapable of imagining that he would become unconcerned with the lives of innocent civilians even if he turned to evil, and may project this onto his teammates as well.

*** How exactly do you put a device on the fastest man alive if he actively wants to kill you, how can you do anything if any of those are already rogue and ready to level cities. Even in Forever Evil Batman's plan still needed some new trick that some didn't make sense because his plan her wouldn't work on EvilCounterpart.



*** Vandal saw the process of cutting with rocks to surgical laser, surely he knows more than batman about how to make bullet.



*** Because Martian Manhunter on fire wouldn't cause property damage when he freaks out. Also notice how his plan for himself includes hurt a civilian? Even his plan against hinged on him still be a good guy at heart.



** Really, if anyone is to blame for the failure of the plan, its Savage himself- he should have launched the missle the moment the Justice League were incapacitated (and pull a YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness on his minions), but he wanted to offer these criminals a chance to rule the world with him (even though none of them usually go after something like that, and probably wouldn't make very good rulers). Mostly he seemed to just waste time because he was oh-so-confident that his plan would succeed and the other villains would appreciate his genius.

*** So he thinks that if he becomes evil he would be stupid enough to go straight on against the League instead of using his contingency plans to kill them individually. No wonder Savage got a hold of his plans he thinks criminals are all morons.


Added DiffLines:

*** Replace Savage in this movie by Evil Batman and you'll get the idea of why this is a poor reasoning. Batman has already planned to kill them all by surprise individually why does he thinks him turning rogue implies a 180 where he became a loud mustache twirling villain? this is just him covering his own ass.

** Throwing a batarang at the Joker's face and setting up Superman to get shot by a kryptonite or drugging Wonder Woman so she dies of exhaustion is not the same thing. The fact that it takes so few twinkling to turn his plan into an assassination for his friend while for his rogue gallery it's wait untilt they break the law then punch them hard is really worrying.

* Isn't giving an immortal life in prison without possibility of parole ''by definition'' a cruel and unusual punishment, and therefore ''illegal''? The fact that the Justice League didn't bat an eye to this sentence strikes me as odd. Sure he's a really sick fuck, but ''infinity''? Not the thousands or ''maybe'' millions of years he deserves, but an ''infinite'' punishment for a horrible but still finite crime?
