In Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes, Batman makes the Joker robot scatter kryptonite in a large enough pattern that it could be seen from space, alerting the Justice League. So, neither Batman or Superman have any other way to contact the league, but the Martian Manhunter can call the whole league in two seconds? Wouldn't Batman have at least a dozen ways to get in touch with the Justice League satellite? Heck, later on Batman contacts J'onn and has him fire the satellite's cannon on Luthor's robot, so why didn't he call them earlier?
Maybe his League communicator was in the batcave? Which was razed by the villains by that point?
Or maybe after been played for a sap so long he decided to pull a Batman Gambit just to bring Joker and Lex down a notch.

For an international intelligence organization, why can't S.H.I.E.L.D. seriously figure out that Norman Osborn is the Green Goblin?
It was basically a plug for the upcoming (August 2014) Guardians of the Galaxy, advertised as a "superheroes in space" story, which Marvel has big hopes for. It is not yet explicitly known to be tied in to the rest of the MCU.
Yeah, that much I got. But what was the "other reason" they were there?
My apologies. Having watched it again, they don't reveal the "other reason" they need Fury's help. I'm going to call it a probable Sequel Hook.
Does the game establish which Venom it is?
Nope. Widow asks Spidey who Venom's current host is, but he doesn't answer. Use your imagination.
Why so many pointless joke characters while leaving out serious characters that would have been fun to play? What, Howard the Duck was a vital and important character, but Nightcrawler wasn't, even though teleporting would have been a cool new ability to integrate? Then, Aunt May and Gwen Stacy and other civilian characters with no real skills, but not, say, Mockingbird or any other badass normals? I'm OK with including these characters, but why exclude others when you have room for these clowns?
Actually, teleporting is a mechanic in the game for characters like Loki who can't stretch or shrink their way through grates.
Because it's a LEGO game. Putting in joke characters is mandatory. They were well aware that they were going to get some "hey why wasn't x in it" complaints.
