Although this is an alternate reality version of Bruce Wayne and the story takes place in the Dark Multiverse with alternate versions of everyone we know and love, what is done here is still impressive.
Bruce gets a GL ring when his parents are killed. By sheer willpower, he overcomes the ring's limitation on it's "no killing rule" and kills Joe Chill. Then when the GLC confronts him, Bruce one shots 6 Guardians and at least 25 GL's (that I counted) at the same time!
One Guardian barely survived, begging Bruce to stop only to get his head taken off.
It may be an alternate reality Bruce, but MAN that is one impressive feat.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong.
