  1. Now THAT is good!! “The Bat would come after you.” and Luthor’s reaction is PRICELESS. He’s never bat (pun intended) an eye at offing Supes but the thought of Batman coming after him gives him pause? Damn fine art work, damn fine plot, damn fine pie!

    I like it!

  2. What I love is the Joker pointing out how crazy Luthor’s obsession with Superman is. Even funnier after a day spent reading Terry Pratchett.

    • Even better is him doing it and Luthor not getting the “joke”. A Luthor vrs. Joker mini-series or one-shot would be incredible if these angles were examined. Forget them “teaming up” against Batman and Superman. Let’s see these two go at it, no holds barred. Which is more dangerous? Totally cunning sociopath or totally insane sociopath?

  3. Yet again I simply love how unmatched these two are – everyone thinks Superman is an awesome hero, but his arch-nemesis doesn’t hold a candle to the Joker.
