This just further proves that Batman is the strongest member of the JLA, hands down. If you think otherwise, you're crazy. He's the only human, yet he's the most prepared for any conflict. And even in the midst of a gigantic mistake made in this one, he still manages to fight to save the day and bring everyone together (with little to no JLA assistance). I LOVE IT.
This was also my first JLA read, would like to check out some more..
