    I really haven't watched it in a while. Last I saw he was all alone with Alfred and very different takes on his rogues gallery (Joker really looking like a circus clown, Freeze a thug instead of a doomed scientist). Last week I watched it and now he's got Robin & Batgirl and J'onn J'onzz made his first appearance. This week was the end of the two parter where Batman stops an alien invasion at the last minute with help from his partners and Manhunter. Then at the end of this week's episode Martian Manhunter asks him to join a group he has just formed. After a quick teleport to his new base, we see the Flash, Green Arrow, Green Lantern (Hal?), and Hawkman.

    So I guess the Justice League isn't quite so gone after all. :) 

    Also, The Batman version of the Watchtower looks like the ol' Hall of Justice on an asteroid with a satellite jutting out from below.

    So has anyone else been watching this?

    I saw this too, it was really cool. It'd be cool if they make a JL based off of this version of Batman.

    i have only been able to watch it from the box sets and from youtube. youtube is a bit iffy on specific "the Batman" episodes. I have season 1-3, 3 being where they introduced batgirl. I like the series, makes me wish i had gotten cable sometimes :D

    I was totally confused on the logic behind having Hal Jordan in the Justice League. They canceled all the good DC shows because they didn't want "children" to confuse characters within different continuities, then what do they do? They ditch Stewart for Jordan. If a kid watched JLU wouldn't he be confused by there being a white Green Lantern in The Batman? FUCK Warner Brothers.

    Man, I haven't watch Batman in years. The closet thing to it was JL and that was last year.

    BTW, anyone watch that movie length Batman with that Phantom person? It's years old, but damn it was awesome.

    Do you mean Mask of the Phantasm? That was produced as a part of the original animated series, and yeah, it rocked on so many levels. The other two, Sub Zero and Mystery of the Batwoman are alright as well, but nothing beats Mask.

    Yeah, I get what you mean but the writers can always come up with the excuse that its a "different" universe.

    As for Batman movie cartoons...I would also recommend Batman Beyond - Return of the Joker. One of the more impressive cartoons I've ever watched.

    I don't see how. The Batman is established as it's own universe. Kids won't be confused. Besides, I'm glad they switched to a different Lantern. Stewart was good in JLU, but he wasn't really a great GL. Hal and Kyle are far more interesting characters.

    The Batman vs. Dracula was a pretty good movie. Vampire Joker was great. I also thought it was cool that they let Dracula totally beat Batman's ass. It's not often you see Batman so completely outclassed.
