[[caption-width-right:350:A.K.A. ''The Goddamn Batman (or [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Crazy Steve]]) and Dick Grayson, Age Twelve'']]

->''"What, are you '''dense'''? Are you '''retarded''' or something? Who the hell do you '''think''' I am? [[MemeticMutation I'm the Goddamn]] '''[[MemeticBadass Batman]]'''."''
--> -- '''[[SelfDemonstratingArticle The Goddamn Batman]]'''

The original ''ComicBook/AllStarDCComics'' title. Ran from 2005 until 2008. When DC announced the book it was widely anticipated as Creator/FrankMiller's return to the site of two of his greatest books -- ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' and ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', this time with the tale of Robin's origin, and illustrated by Jim Lee.

The series was infamous for, among other things, [[ScheduleSlip having an erratic release schedule]]. After the run came to an end[[note]]As in no new issues were published, not that [[CutShort the story itself had been completed]][[/note]], it was announced in 2010 that Frank Miller would write a ContinuityReboot called ''Dark Knight: Boy Wonder'' that would go on for 6 issues and [[AuthorsSavingThrow compile the story that he wanted to tell originally]]. More than half a decade later, there's still no word on [[DevelopmentHell when exactly this series will arrive.]]

Not to be confused with Creator/ScottSnyder's 2016 series ''[[http://www.newsarama.com/28600-rebirth-q-a-scott-snyder-on-all-star-batman.html All-Star Batman]]'', which Snyder heavily emphasizes has nothing to do with this.
----
!!This goddamn comic provides examples of:
* AdaptationalJerkass: In this series, Batman is depicted as enjoying violence and inflicting pain, in contrast to his usual depiction.
* AdaptationalNationality: Black Canary becomes Irish.
* TheAdjectivalSuperhero: He's the Goddamn Batman!
* AllAmazonsWantHercules:
** Franchise/WonderWoman ''really'' hates men. That is, all men except {{Franchise/Superman}}. After the two get into an argument, Supes stomps on the ground hard enough that it knocks her over. This ''[[SlapSlapKiss turns her on]]'' and leads to the two making out.
** The same goes for Black Canary and her feelings for Batman himself.
* AllThereInTheManual: The story makes more sense as a sequel to ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'' when you read issue #10 and some plot points, such as Batman's relationship with Green Lantern, become very interesting when compared to ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain''. Also confirmed by WordOfGod is that the series is in the same universe as ''The Dark Knight Returns''.
** Interestingly enough, Miller has also noted that he never ''intended'' for Batman to be seen as truly "heroic" in this arc (quite the opposite), until near the end, where the Goddamn Batman tones down (with Robin's help) to become the "moral" Batman we all know. (See CharacterDevelopment, below.)
* AntiHero: The Goddamn Batman and ComicBook/BlackCanary. Black Canary savagely beats up a bar full of men for rude behavior and steals their wallets, and Batman is a psychotic lunatic who brutalizes anyone in his way, even if they didn't do anything. They are the good guys of the story.
* AscendedMeme: Starting with Issue 6, Frank started slipping in references to "the Goddamn Batman". Well, less "slip" and more [[ForcedMeme "spraypaint 'goddamn' all over the goddamn place".]]
* AuthorAppeal: Some of the more hostile criticisms regarding ''All Star Batman and Robin'' claim that the whole thing was used by Miller to vicariously live out his personal Batman [[WishFulfillment fantasy]]; citing the disregard for Batman's moral code [[spoiler: (especially during the scene where he rescues Robin from corrupt cops; never mind that he takes pleasure in harming them; but also nearly kills both Alfred and Vicki Vale in the process)]], the over-the top fan service, as well as his less than flattering portrayals of most of the other Justice League (particularly Superman and Green Lantern).
* AuthorAvatar: It's pretty clear that the Goddamn Batman is how Miller sees himself if he were Batman.
* ButtMonkey: Franchise/GreenLantern exists pretty much to be humiliated and insulted by the Goddamn Batman, then gets his neck injured by Robin so Batman gets to save his life.
* BelatedBackstory: For Dick Grayson (age 12) in ''The Dark Knight Strikes Again''
* BigBad: The Joker is ultimately responsible for the murder of Robin's parents.
* CharacterDevelopment: The Goddamn Batman starts out completely insane and isolated but is ''slowly'' becoming more human thanks to the influence of Dick Grayson ([[InsistentTerminology age 12]]). Not very noticeable due to the large amount of padding but it's definitely there.
** Miller himself has stated that this was the entire point: to explain why the Goddamn Batman needed a kid sidekick, anyway--to bring him back down to earth after a period of having too much fun with his crime-fighting. However, it rings pretty hollow when it's in issue seven (''years'' into the series thanks to ScheduleSlip) of a twelve-issue miniseries that that infamous bleach incident takes place. Far from ascending to herodom and influencing Batman to regain his humanity, Dick Grayson, Age Twelve has yet to take up the Robin mantle and was last seen being very impressed by all the deadly weaponry he was surrounded by. Meanwhile, Crazy Steve is deliberately burning crooks to death and enjoying it, while the equally derailed Black Canary swoons over him because apparently that's sexy. And whenever Dick Grayson, Age Twelve comes up in his narration, it's pretty much always with a "stuck with an annoying kid" comment as if he wasn't the one who KIDNAPPED HIM.
* ClusterFBomb / SirSwearsALot: Almost every character talks like this, even the 15-year-old Batgirl. ''[[EspeciallyZoidberg Especially]]'' [[EspeciallyZoidberg the 15-year-old fucking Batgirl.]]
* ContinuityNod: There are several to other Dark Knight Universe stories.
** DKR's Battank being built in the Batcave.
** The Batcave is full of these. Besides the aforementioned Bat-Tank, there are:
*** The Bat-Glider from ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'',
*** The Bat-Copter from ''The Dark Knight Returns'',
*** The Bat-Shield Batmobile,
*** The 60s Show Batmobile,
*** And the Batwing from the 'Hush' storyline, also pencilled by Jim Lee.
** Joker's henchgirl Bruno and Batman saying the ''We have to be Criminals'' line.
** Also, Batman's character is identical to Frank Miller's in ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'', save for him being 20-30 years younger. When TDKR came out, the story seemed to imply it was the decades of superheroing that turned Batman into this sour, cynical person. This story retcons that into Batman having started out as ''more'' of a jerkass than in TDKR and growing more noble, responsible and humane as he grew old, probably thanks to Dick Grayson Age Twelve's influence.
*** This is a bit ironic if you consider that Grayson [[spoiler: is revealed to be a complete psychopath in TDKSA. During their climatic battle, he implies that Bruce's negligence and lack of affection drove him insane. Miller's Batman predictably scoffs and pushes him into hot lava.]]
** A subtle one is on the cover of the first issue, with Batman swinging over Gotham. His face is blacked out with only his eyes visible, similar to the covers for ''The Dark Knight Returns'' collected editions.
** Gordon's story about taking a baseball bat to Flass occurs in ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', though [[BadassNormal not the way he makes it sound]].
* ContinuitySnarl:
** Even at his most pumped up, no holds barred, extreme moment in ''The Dark Knight Returns'', Batman couldn't bring himself to kill the Joker. In ''All Star Batman'' he killed crooked cops without hesitation (sometimes plowing through and utterly destroying police cars with ''no way to know'' they were all crooked. He's also quite pleased with crooks killing each other in crossfires, and finishes off the rest by setting them ON FIRE.) This is a guy who places ZERO value on human life.
** The Goddamn Batman rants to Robin about how he can call his "Batmobile" whatever he wants. In ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' Batman muses that it was Robin who came up with the term.
** Barbara Gordon's existence. The story explicitly takes place a few years after the Joker's first appearance, which happened right at the end of ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne''. In that story, the Gordons don't have any kids, with Jim even lamenting that it'd be wrong to bring a child into Gotham. Given Barbara's age, it's impossible that she was born after James. It's possible that she's Jim's niece in this version, but given that the series plays on the Silver Age quite a bit, it's more than likely she's his biological daughter and there's some snarl in effect.
* CrapsackWorld: Usually true in a Batman story, but much ''much'' more so here.
* CutShort: The entire series. Issues #11 and #12 are likely never going to come out, and DC has been saying for years they'll reboot and finish the series with nothing concrete to back up the claims.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Attempted (maybe parodied?) throughout the series, though the worst has to be the scowling, humorless hitman now claiming his people have sarcastically nicknamed him the Joker.
--> "They call me the Joker. But I'm not very funny."
* ADayInTheLimelight: Issue 10 is mostly done from Lt. Jim Gordon's point of view.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: [[SignatureStyle Very often throughout the text. Again and again. There is repetition. Statements are made. Repeated. Hammered. Insistent. Again and again. Relentless. Tireless. Repeatedly. Again and again.]][[note]][[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] accurately compares the dialogue to [[Film/ManosTheHandsofFate Torgo's]] VerbalTic.[[/note]]
** Dick Grayson. Age 12.
-->'''Vicki Vale''': [[HarmfulToMinors Someone murdered his parents. Right before his eyes.]] [[RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic Brutally. Brutally. It was brutal.]]
* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Frank Miller probably hasn't seen that Green Lantern is perfectly capable of dealing with a yellow room - it's like Batman is the first to ever try that obvious tactic.
** Batman speculating that he could make people think his way with Green Lantern's ring... that's not how it works, Bruce.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:12-year old Dick Grayson]]'s evil in ''The Dark Knight Strikes Again'' is so understandable now.
* GoshDangitToHeck: Since Superman and the Green Lantern are boy scouts compared to everyone else, their dialogue comes off as even sillier than the {{Cluster F Bomb}}s. Although Superman's only line in his first few appearances is "DAMN!"
* HeroicComedicSociopath: The Goddamn Batman and Black Canary. Batgirl and Robin are Heroic Comedic Sociopaths-in-training.
* HotterAndSexier: Much more blatant {{Fanservice}} than is usual in comic books, including a beautifully drawn make-out session in the rain between costumed Black Canary and Batman ("The costumes make it better" line might be a reference to ''{{ComicBook/Watchmen}}'': we refer the reader to that book's page for the explanation of why this is so: suffice to say, it's not simply a fetish).
* IdiotBall: Green Lantern accepts Batman's offer to meet at a time and place of Bats' choosing, instead of just picking him up with his ring and keeping him manacled with it til he spills the beans.
* ImmediateSelfContradiction: Not exactly immediate, but in one issue, the Goddamn Batman calls Green Lantern a moron, then soon after says Green Lantern is a great man.
* InNameOnly: Pretty much ''everyone'' is insanely OutOfCharacter, but Black Canary is given an entirely new back story and motivation, turning from a LegacyCharacter of her mother into an Irish immigrant from a [[MassiveNumberedSiblings large family]] working at a sleazy bar, who was inspired into crime-fighting ([[SociopathicHero and, well, crime]]) by the Goddamn Batman.
* IndecisiveDeconstruction: The entire comic explores, at its heart, the classic-team up between Batman and Robin, the role of the KidSidekick, and the nature of the KidSidekick as an AudienceSurrogate to make the hero relatable, but it raises these points without following on, nor does it properly cohere with the rest of the book:
** Essentially the early issues, about Dick Grayson being "drafted" by Batman into his war on crime, the TrainingFromHell sequences, and the Justice League raising issues about Batman potentially kidnapping an orphan, mirror common complaints about Batman and Robin, namely that a KidSidekick travelling alongside a hero is reckless child endangerment, and the way the various Robins become Batman's partner-in-crime, can be seen as drafting ChildSoldiers rather than its original intent (i.e. a medium for allowing the kids to [[WishFulfillment share a fantasy]] of being a part of the hero's adventures). The problem is that rather than tackle the subtext of the trope and bring it to light, Miller ''literally'' has Batman kidnap and draft Robin as a child-soldier, subject him to emotional, physical, and psychological abuse, and more or less [[{{Gaslighting}} gaslights]] him into accepting that Batman is boss, and not to be second-guessed, all of which is played as an unironic mutually cathartic team-building exercise rather than a ''ComicBook/MarshalLaw'' type spoof, and the comic itself isn't clear if this is a good or bad thing.
** Furthermore, critiquing the idea of Robin as an AudienceSurrogate and how he vicariously enjoys the superhero fantasy that a young audience identifies with, doesn't quite follow when most of the book is openly presented from Batman's point of view, and it isn't Robin gradually coming to see Batman's strange and bizarre world as normal and worth living in, by surrendering his agency, so much as Batman slowly imposing his view and authority on a small child. In addition the comic is clearly aimed at teenagers and adults in its content, its tone, and violence, and deconstructing the idea of Robin without actually addressing the audience the kid sidekick is intended for, more or less prevents it from having anything to say, unlike ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'' which was addressed to children and largely did play the same trope for dramatic effect and tragedy.
** On a meta-level, Batman and comics in general hasn't been a KidAppealCharacter since TheEighties, thanks largely to Creator/FrankMiller himself, and none of the Robins in Batman's main continuity at the time of this comic's publication had been "Age 12". The kid sidekick concept which Robin popularized hasn't been as common and prevalent as it was in the Silver Age, so in a large sense the comic mainly works for those readers who know and remember the old Robin from the Creator/BillFinger-Dick Sprang era, without meaningfully having anything to say to the NostalgiaFilter or broader historical meaning of that connection.
** The other theme in the book is that Batman's negative, dark, and violent personality has a negative influence on society and culture. With Black Canary and Batgirl being inspired to becoming violent superheroes by following his example, except only in the case of Batgirl is it portrayed as a bad thing. And in another instance where Batman saves a woman from rape, she on seeing Batman attack her assailant grins at seeing his cathartic violence. So the comic itself is not sure whether Batman's violence and behavior is a good and bad thing, and as such the big dramatic moment [[spoiler:where Dick Grayson injures Hal Jordan's larynx and Bruce chastises himself and Robin]] doesn't make internal or external sense, or go anywhere.
* InsistentTerminology: The series makes ''sure'' you know Dick Grayson is age twelve.
* {{Jerkass}}: Everybody but Superman, Alfred and Robin is some kind of a jerkass.
** Given that Robin nearly ''murders'' Hal Jordan at one point... you can probably put him on the {{Jerkass}} list too. Though to be fair, this was a 12-year-old boy who'd just watched his parents get murdered, kidnapped by a belligerent man-child dressed like a giant bat who tells him he's going to be a 'detective', and forced to live in a cave where he's told to eat cave-dwelling rodents. His attempt to murder Hal could be seen as the reaction of a severely traumatized preteen.
* LargeHam: This Batman is a far cry from [[TheStoic the Batman we usually know]]. This Batman's dialogue is incredibly bombastic (case in point: [[MemeticMutation "I'm the Goddamn Batman!"]]), frequently shown [[SlasherSmile grinning in maniacal glee]], throws one-liners like there's no tomorrow whenever he's in a fight and even [[CallingYourAttacks announces himself]] by [[EvilLaugh cackling like a lunatic]].
* LingerieScene: Vicki Vale's first appearance is three pages of her parading around her apartment in pink lingerie and high heels. Doubles as SexSells.
** Some editions feature Miller's script for this scene, which gets pretty disturbing as he goes on and on about how detailed her underwear should be, and even calls himself shameless when he asks for a closeup of her ass.
* MaleGaze:
** Frank Miller specifically made a point of having artist Jim Lee draw a detailed shot of Vicki Vale's ass. As rendered in the script: "[[PerverseSexualLust Okay, I'm shameless, let's go for the ASS SHOT]]" (caps in original).
** Then there's Franchise/WonderWoman's ass on the alt cover of #5.
* MsFanservice: Vicki Vale. To make that point even more blunt, her first ever appearance in the story has her standing in her apartment talking about Batman... wearing nothing but pink lingerie.
* MoodWhiplash: Issue 9 was when Batman meets Green Lantern in a yellow room, at first is incredibly funny (DAMN YOU AND YOUR LEMONADE!!) and when Robin starts fighting Green Lantern it's still hilarious and Batman is in on the joke but the fun stops abruptly with a splash page of Robin [[spoiler:punching Green Lantern in the throat, almost killing him if it weren't for Batman]]. Then it's followed by a crowning moment of Heartwarming.
** In universe and out, Batman and Canary have been making out under the rain and "[[Comicbook/{{Watchmen}} under the hood]]", when Batman mentions he can drive her home... in his Batmobile. Canary shows disappointment with her idol's naming choice. Which instantly kills the mood for everyone involved, including the readership, because this (Goddamn) Batman is ''really touchy'' about his stuff and his person not being as awesome as he thinks it is.
* MythologyGag:
** One of Black Canary's sleazy customers strongly resembles [[ComicBook/GreenArrow Oliver Queen]].
** Dick Grayson, age 12, initially wants to be an archery-themed superhero called The Hood, a nod to his father's love of the old ''RobinHood'' movies. In real life, the 1938 film ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRobinHood'' was one of the inspirations behind the creation of Robin.
* NeverMyFault: Several moments in the story have Goddamned Batman repeatedly blame Dick Grayson, age 12, for coming into his life and becoming his sidekick, [[SelfServingMemory completely ignoring the fact]] that he's the one who abducted the boy against his will in the first place.
* OnlySaneMan: Alfred finds himself making crazy suggestions like, "Maybe we shouldn't force [[MemeticMutation Dick Grayson age twelve]] to ''survive by eating rats''."
** Green Lantern too. Pity he's also the ButtMonkey.
* PacingProblems: The story is very guilty of this, with [[{{Filler}} a lot of pointless conversations]], taking too long to get to key events (like Dick Grayson, [[MemeticMutation age 12]], actually becoming Robin), and [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters focusing on some other character to the detriment of the protagonists]]. The fact that the series has an [[ScheduleSlip infamously bad release schedule]] is a contender.
** As if to [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] this, a milk carton with 12-year-old Dick Grayson's face on it is seen by Superman... While Grayson is still in the Batmobile, being driven away from the scene of his parent's murder, towards the Batcave. This journey takes ''several issues''.
* PeepingTom: Happens when Jimmy Olsen visits Vicki Vale in the hospital. The reader is [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment repeatedly informed by the narration boxes]] that Jimmy doesn't watch, but he is [[UnreliableNarrator clearly shown turning his head]] near the bottom of the page.
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Anyone who is not the Goddamn Batman or disagrees with what he's doing is ineffectual, stupid, and/or evil. Anyone who ''is'' the Goddamn Batman or agrees with his methods is heroic and awesome.
* PsychopathicManchild: In addition to the joy he takes in violence, the Goddamn Batman has the temperament of a child, getting incredibly moody and angry whenever someone isn't impressed with his cave or gadgets. Possibly done as a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] of Batman. ''We hope.''
* RefugeInAudacity: Black Canary is a barmaid who wears a {{stripperiffic}} outfit as part of her job. One night, the accumulated tension of unattractive men hitting on her in the most vulgar way wears her patience so thin she is ready to explode. Then one of them actually gropes her. She snaps, and beats the everliving crap out everyone, to unconsciousness. She makes a point of making one of them swallow his wedding ring, for obvious reasons. She loots their bodies. She torches the place. She runs away on a motorbike by jumping over a ramp and into the air. Coincidentally, Detective Gordon's car was passing right under. He brushes it off, saying they've got bigger things to worry about. As a matter of fact, he is right. Allstar Gotham is only marginally less insane than ''ComicBook/SinCity''.
* RunningGag: The Batmobile being a "queer name" for a car. Lampshaded in hilarious fashion.
--> '''Batman:''' Not one ''word.'' I've taken ''enough'' grief about calling my goddamn car the goddamn Batmobile. I'm the goddamn ''Batman'' and I can call my goddamn car whatever the hell I ''want'' to call it.
** Not played for comedy but done completely straight is saying Dick Grayson, Age 12.
* SceneryPorn: One of the few good, not SoBadItsGood, things about the series.
* SlasherSmile: Not from [[ComicBook/TheJoker the guy you'd expect]], but Batman himself, to Creator/GoNagai levels!
* SplashPanel: The Batcave is introduced in a six-page spread.
* StalkerWithoutACrush: Batman says he'd been scoping out Dick Grayson, age 12, as a sidekick for ''months'' before his parents were even killed.
* StartOfDarkness: An unintentional one for [[spoiler:''Dark Knight Strikes Again''!Dick Grayson]].
* StrawFeminist: Wonder Woman, who is introduced shoving a guy out of her way while yelling "Out of the way, sperm bank!". [[AllAmazonsWantHercules It seems she's mostly unsatisfied by men's failure to live up to her expectations, rather than actually claiming superiority or even equality as a woman]]: men are overhyped, weaker than they are supposed to be, than they should be. Superman proves to be a subversion: his boy-scout, simple morals clash with her pragmatism and warrior ethos, but he has the power, strength, and intimidation to enforce his law, and that ''really turns her on''.
* StupidGood: Green Lantern and Superman both come off this way, more out of ignorance than actual stupidity.
** And in Creator/FrankMiller stories, the Goddamn Batman is always goddamn right. '''Always.'''
* Squick: Batman talking about how his mother's breast bled on him after he touched it. Ignoring the fact that it's an implied bullet wound, the overtones are unpleasant to think about.
* TakeThat: Frank Miller has stated in interviews that he thinks Green Lantern is worthless, ''and it shows''.
** Which is curious, [[FlipFlopOfGod considering he wrote Hal as arguably the noblest character]] in ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain.
* TestosteronePoisoning: Creator/FrankMiller grade, triple distilled.
* ThoseWackyNazis: The Joker's muscular, shirtless henchwoman. With swastika pasties over her breasts. It's a ContinuityNod to a minor character in ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''.
* TrainingFromHell: Clearly what the Goddamn Batman intended for Robin.
* TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot: [[http://www.i-mockery.com/comics/longbox7/default.php The Goddamn Batmobile is also a Goddamn Delorean]]:
--> "[[WritersCannotDoMath Fifteen hours ago]]". That means one of two things. Clark Kent either drank this carton of milk fifteen hours before [[OverlyLongGag Dick Grayson, age 12]], was kidnapped by Batman, and thus it is a magical prescient carton of milk, OR it's actually been a long enough ride in the Batmobile for Dick to have been reported missing, for his name to get to the missing persons groups, for them to submit his information to the milk company, for the milk company to print the cartons, distribute the cartons, and then for Clark Kent to go to the grocery store and buy the carton of milk. Let's see, by my rough estimate, that means that Batman and Dick have been on the way to the Batcave for, oh, about FIVE FUCKING WEEKS now.
** A lot of these issues come up. The series goes over two or three nights, depending on how you look at it, yet Miller seems to forget this since the books took so long to come out. Especially in issue nine. Batman arranges a meeting with Hal Jordan 'in twelve hours' in issue eight; yet in issue nine, Batman is reminiscing about multiple training sessions and Dick Grayson, age 12, being in the cave with him for weeks. Also, apparently an entire clinic was bribed, Dick made a press conference and then they could paint an entire apartment yellow with "nearly an hour to spare" before Jordan arrived for his meeting twelve hours since issue eight.
** This is probably because Frank Miller is utilizing non-linear storytelling. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of all the "11 hours earlier" in the same issue.
--> "WHAT TIME IS IT?!" - [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] and many others frustrated about all the X hours earlier"
* UnusualEuphemism and InherentlyFunnyWords: Black Canary is called ''lovechunks.''
* WhatTheHellHero: Both Robin and The Green Lantern call out Batman for his Bat-shit crazy behavior. Ironically, Batman also gets to call out Robin when Robin [[spoiler:crushes Green Lantern's throat]].
* WhoAreYou: The second issue included this [[MemeticMutation memetic]] exchange (which effectively set the tone for the series as a whole):
-->'''Dick Grayson, [[RunningGag Age 12]]:''' Who the hell are you anyway, giving out orders like this?\\
'''(Goddamn) Batman:''' What are you, ''dense''? Are you ''retarded'' or something? Who the hell do you ''think'' I am? I'm the Goddamn ''Batman''.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The Goddamn Batman fantasizes about what he could do with Green Lantern's ring - force everyone to think ''his'' way. God help us.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Poor Superman and Green Lantern are oblivious to the fact that they're in a [[CreatorBreakdown post-9/11 Frank Miller]] comic. Because of this, [[HeroicComedicSociopath the Goddamn Batman]] can easily manipulate them both.
