The concept of his costume being made of the blanket he was wrapped in was a Pre-Crisis explanation for how his clothing could be invulnerable, in the Post-Crisis series written by John Byrne called Man of Steel, his invulnerability is explained as a protective aura that extends to the clothing touching his skin. This is how he can have a torn or shredded ...

Batman was the first to debut in the DCAU having made his first appearance in the premiere episode of Batman the Animated Series in 1992. It seems only fitting that they close JLU and the Animated Universe out with him as well.

In Universe It is supposedly the Hand of Creation (no references), but I suspect it is the hand of Krona, having gone back in time to witness the Big Bang, in some perverse way actually causes or assists the event by observing it. In any event, his witnessing the birth of the universe (there was technology involved) caused the creation of the Anti-Matter ...

The Justice League was dealing with a variety of problems which forced their use of the Batcave as their only real choice. All things being equal there simply wasn't any other place capable of providing the resources to resist the Thanagarians effectively.** The Thanagarians arrived with a massive fleet lead by one of their leading strategists, Hro Talak. ...

I have some experience blacksmithing - you couldn't make a blade from a pipe and road flares, but the problem is the flares, not the pipe. You'd need a forge, which isn't terribly difficult to create (a lot of folks make these out of barbecues), some decent hammers, and some decent stock. A lot of folks use springs, leaf or coil, as starting stock. But I ...

Not necessarily. It would make far more sense to simply edit the DNA sequencing of a limited period of the father's spermatozoa than it would be to completely rewrite his entire DNA sequence of his entire body. Since they would not want evidence of this tampering, the nanites would likely perform their duties for a time and then self-destruct and exit the ...

Short Answer: The mind-control technology being used by the Fatal Five was designed to overcome the conscious control of the mind of its victims. The subjects of the mind control would do whatever was required of them and this would not interfere with the use of their powers. Indeed the technology was designed to utilize the Legion as living weapons against ...

The same Wikipedia link that you mentioned also has the answer to this. Most of the films before the Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox doesn't share any continuity. Only few do, which are: Superman/Batman This continuity is based on the Superman/Batman story line. Superman/Batman: Public Enemies Superman/Batman: Apocalypse Justice League This ...

From the Dictionary of Modern Proverbs: Generals have a proverbial weakness for fighting the last war In order to destroy Thanagarian hyper relay, Batman had to crash the Watch Tower into it. In the aftermath I'm sure Batman and others were thinking "Wouldn't it have been great if we hadn't had to do that? What if we had a powerful energy canon instead,...

dcau.fandom.com elaborated it quite well: When Batman confronts Waller, he tells her that the fusion cannon was taken over by remote control and that "There are maybe three people on Earth smart enough to pull that off". Waller quickly guesses that he means Luthor but they do not mention the other two who were "already on the Watchtower". Batman probably ...

There is a quote from Bruce Timm that Matt is also a child / clone of Bruce Wayne. Bruce Timm on "Epilogue” #1: “Well, we didn’t come right out and say it, but since Warren’s love gun was shooting 'Bruce Wayne bullets,' yes, Matt is also Bruce’s biological son. - http://jl.toonzone.net/episode50/episode50.htm Unfortunately I can't find a more credible ...

While Hawkgirl may have been aware of the existence of the Bat Cave, she did not know it's exact location. Batman was the only person who could allow access to the cave, no one gets in without his or another member of the Bat Family's permission. It was also a secure location underground, more than likely shielded from the possiblity of intrusive scanning/...

I'm not sure for certain, but I can venture a guess that the other two people who are smart enough to remotely control the fusion cannon and where both on the Watchtower are: 1: Batman himself: We see clear evidence in this scene that Batman knows the inner workings of the fusion cannon, so he would be knowledgeable enough to be capable of firing it. (...

Like Hal, he doesn't appear in the DCAU, but he was referenced directly and indirectly: A police detective in the Justice League episode "The Brave and the Bold" has a passing resemblance to Barry Allen, acting as the "good cop" during the Flash's interrogation. In the Justice League Unlimited episode "Flash and Substance", the Wally West Flash ...

Captain Atom was acting under orders and his own interpretation of those orders in accord with his principles, there was no explicit mind control other than the standard training and indoctrination one would expect from a U.S. military soldier.
