* How old is Toyman in this show. He looks like he's in his 20s and 30s. Shouldn't Bruno Mannheim be in his 60s if Toyman was a kid when his dad was set up by the gangster?

* In World's Finest, Batman practically threatens Superman, holding a small Kryptonite fragment near him and saying something along the lines of "It doesn't take a lot, does it?". Then he... hands its over to Superman by leaving it there. Um, what!? Why would Batman let go of the only piece of Kryptonite he has for no reason!? That sounds like a rather foolish and out of character thing to do for the master of preparation. You would expect him to hold onto it so that he has a way of fighting back in case Superman ever goes rogue (which ends up happening in Legacy), or the Earth gets attacked by evil Kryptonians (which had already happening in Blasts from the Past, and came close to happening again later). I know he was there to warn Superman about the Joker being after him and having Kryptonite in his hands, but that doesn't mean that he had to hand over his piece of Kryptonite, or even let Superman know that he had it.

**It's implied that was Karkull messing with it rather than anything else, as the words changed from a foreign language to english for the hapless thief to read.

** Not quite. Disregarding the fact that Superman acts to some degree with official endorsement from the authorities, technically he is the equivalent of a normal man making an escaping thief fall or doing a citizen arrest, which is perfectly legal. Batman on the other hand does things that are illegal and are only allowed to authorities like tapping phones, entering private properties and using violence. Yes, he never kills and he does delivers the criminals to the authorities for further process, but everything else is mostly illegal for a civilian.

** Also, the rocket wasn't designed to fly with her and Kal-El, just Kal. Jor-El would have had to do some super fast last minute adjustments, and with planet collapse imminent, there would be no time to double check to make sure the rocket would stay on course and keep two passengers alive instead of two. Staying with Jor-El probably maximized Kal's chances of surviving (at least the initial) trip off his planet.

* In "World's Finest", Superman tells Batman that he doesn't like vigilantes in his town. Wait...what? Isn't Superman a vigilante as well? I don't see a badge on Superman's chest.

** I think he meant "pretending to be nothing more than an ordinary journalist", and the rest was just implied.

* Also from Legacy, why didn't Superman delay his raid on Apokolips so that he could oversee Supergirl's whole operation? Given Hamilton's reluctance and newfound distrust, Supes had no guarantee that he keep it up throughout the end. And then there was the risk of the government showing up and stopping it or taking Supergirl, or STARS handing her over to the authorities.
