Loki God Of Mischief wrote:Shadowman and kjyl don't read comics. Or at least haven't read Justice League: Tower of Babel. I'll sum up the story for you. After members of the Justice League were mind controlled Batman got paranoid. After that crisis was resolved he decided that he needed to come up with a way to neutralize every active member of the Justice League (hinted to be every super hero not just JL members), and he put safeguards in place to do so. Ra's Al Ghul somehow found out about it and triggered the safe guards.
How did Batman originally plan to take down Hal? Post hypnotic suggestion. That's right. Simple hypnosis.Green Lantern is rendered blind by his own power ring after a post-hypnotic suggestion is introduced into his mind while he sleeps, the ring subsequently responding to his belief that he is blind by making him so.
So what does this all mean? Batman has a plan in place to stop anyone. And I mean anyone. The only way Hal could hope to beat him is to take him completely by surprise and knock him out in that very instant. Otherwise it's game over for Hal.
Apparently you don't read comics either.
You said only way Hal could take out Hal is by surprised? Are you crazy? it's the other way around. Batman's only way to beat a Green Lantern is by taking him by surprise.
Batman's whole plan against GL was to sneak up on him in his apartment while he's sleeping and not wearing his ring.
You know what GL's plan against Batman would be? Vaporize him with a blast or crush him in a bubble. Or if he's in his house or cave, drop an asteroid on it.
