    I picked up #5 last week, and in it, Batman reveals his secret identity to Green Lantern, who has no idea who Bruce Wayne is. My question is, in this new continuity, is Bruce not a world famous billionaire playboy?

    Well, Hal doesn't spend too much time reading the tabloids apparently. It's not surprising to me personally, since he's more focused on intergalactic problems as a GL as opposed to wondering who the richest guys in the world are.

    Hal is so full of himself, it's surprising he knows anything at all

    I think this days it best. Also, Hal Jordan doesn't live in Gotham City.

    Doesn't the first arc of the new JLA title take place 5 years in the past, relative to the other new 52 titles? Maybe, back 5 years ago, Bruce wasn't quite as well known as he is now.

    Simple answer? Hal's a moron.

    I think Geoff Johns is just playing up the overconfident know it all jerk part of Hal Jordan (see issue 1's Hal Jordan/Batman interaction). Don't really like it, but eh, so far most of the new 52 JLA has been terrible. I really hate decompressed storytelling.

    A know it all? I thought Hal Jordan liked making an ass of himself, like Sinestro said in issue 3 of Green Lantern.
