    My feeling is that DC's closest equivalent to CIVIL WAR was KINGDOM COME. Notably, in the DC Universe, the split was along generational lines rather than purely ideological/political lines. ...

    Is Barry biologically related to Iris at all? No.

    Did Joe West ever legally adopt Barry? No.

    That's 0-2 on the incest count. Essentially, Barry was a long-term boarder at the West residence....

    I love Batman as a character, but he has NO BUSINESS soloing some of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe.

    I forgot...wasn't that some kind of hallucination sequence?

    Or was Batman honest-to-goodness soloing some of the most powerful members of the Justice League?
