  • Most of the Titans readers and Titans fans on DCN were less than thrilled with Dolphin as a romantic lead for Tempest, which made the scenes where she is being a bitch to "King of the Woobies" Garth that much more vile, expecially concidering Tula's ghost was fettered to Garth and cannot do anything while she watches the man she loves get abused for YEARS. Finally, the odds get evened, Tula and Dolphin are, due to story events, on the astral plane, fighting. Tula proceeds to take out much pent-up frustration on Dolphin's person with extreme prejudice.

  • In the second Tales of Metropolis, Lois Lane goes through some pretty impressive lengths to land an interview with Batman. She swims to Gotham City, punches a thug, and sneaks into Penguin's hideout, all the while bombarding Bats with questions and never breaking a sweat. Ultimately she succeeds in getting Batman to tell her six things about his career.note 
    • Also when she saw that Jimmy Olsen had been captured by the Penguin, she immediately proclaimed she'd save him. The only reason she didn't do so was that she remembered she was on Batman's turf and that it would have been rude for her to intervene.

    • The short becomes even more awesome in itself when you remember that Batman is one of the most illusive characters in the DC Universe, capable of sneaking past even Superman himself. Lois manages to surpass the Bat in stealth and surprise, much to his astonishment and frustration. Maybe she has a minor in ninjutsu?
  • The fact that Plastic Man, I repeat, Plastic Man was able to best Batman when he was still a thief, as in before he got his powers.
  • The Batman Beyond short made to celebrate Batman's 75th anniversary has a very awesome tribute to the Batman franchise in general that begins with Terry and Bruce taking down a robot duplicate of Bruce when he was Batman. Shortly after that, they get into a battle with robot duplicates of the Golden Age Batman and the incarnations of Batman that appear in the campy 1960's show, the 1989 film, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, The Batman, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and Beware the Batman.
