Then There Was That Time Batman Joined The Legion Of Super-Heroes!

Well, OK, it was an imaginary story...but aren't they all imaginary?

Anyway, in this particular reality, soon after the Waynes are murdered, the Kents are approached with a proposition:

So, Alfred, you're officially unhealthy for the kid. Now beat it!

Of course, it's not long before the brothers make the obvious discovery about each others' unusual wardrobe choices...

Apparently, Smallville had an awful lot of crime to fight!

But when Bruce turns 21...

...we find out that the Kents are incredible moochers!!

So, screw Metropolis, and to heck with you, Lois Lane!!

Aww, but eventually, Lex Luthor murders the Kents, because he's a member of the Justice League...oops, wrong imaginary story. But he does kill the Kents:

And super-weepy Batman can trump any grief Clark Kent might have!

Uhhh...fuck you, Bruce?

An idea?!?

We'll have to ask Legion constitution expert  Siskoid if that's strictly legal. If you can amend your constitution any old time a whim strikes, is it much of a constitution?

But the result is--

--the mismatch of the century!!!


Batman with a flight ring!!! Bring on Mordru!!!

Hmmm...a Batman in the Legion might actually keep DC from cancelling/rebooting them continually. Get me DiDio!!

This is what I get for procrastinating. This has been "next up" for my moribund "Spinner Rack Memories" blog for a couple of years now. You did a better job of it than I probably would have, though. Excellent!
