> I've got to give Batman credit too.

Well, something deserves to be credited here... my vote goes to bad writing.

> Here he is facing down an evil Kryptonian who could kill him in a millisecond...

Yeah. Exactly.

In a millisecond. There is no plausible way for him to have survived. It should have been over the moment she moved to within striking range.

Hello? If you can move faster than a speeding bullet why on Earth would you have to freeze the legs of a guy who moves at a glacier's pace compared to you to keep him from moving? Heh, only in a comic book could Bats avoid being splattered across the docks from one easy super-speed punch... ;-p

Yeah, I know superheroes do it all the time, yadda, yadda, yadda... but I would hope for better writing in this day and age (read: at the very least Bats having a better plan than that...).

I agree. She was able to take John's GL ring without him even noticing and match the Flash's speed but yet Batman can draw out a concealed weapon AND use it on her while she's standing a couple of feet away.. that's pretty bad writing.

lol very true.. the irony of it is that she herself was wondering why no one has killed Bats already, yet she could have killed him twenty times over within a single panel.
