The Tower of Babel Justice League story is known for being the story where Batman has contingency plans to take down each member of the justice league, and unfortunately they fall into the wrong hands (Ras' hands to be exact). This is one of my all time favorite comics and Justice League Doom is my favorite animated superhero movie which loosely follows this story. For anyone who hates Batman this is probably their least favorite. I am asking you guys if you would like to see this story become a movie. If yes would you want it to be a Justice League movie or similar to Captain America Civil War, have it be Batman Tower Of Babel?

It'd show the mainstream audience why Batman is considered such a lethal threat in the DC universe. Plus, it's one of Batman's characteristics at this stage.

I'd rather have, and you should know I'm a total Joe Kelly fanboy, Golden Perfect, Obsidian Age or Trial By Fire.

On the Vine, Tower of Babel is interpreted by many as Morrison making Batman look good at other character's expense. However, for a mainstream audience, it could come off pretty good as long as Batman has made a plan for himself.

**** No. Even though I loved Justice League Doom. In a live action setting, it would make Batman look a paranoid ***hole that doesn't trust his teammates.

No, because I'm afraid whoever takes the film on will completely miss the point of the story.

It wouldn't really serve a purpose as far as universe-building is concerned.

I was under the impression the second Justice League movie would an Apokolips invasion.

If I have to choose between Darkseid and Batman as the threat, Darkseid gets my vote.

Interesting that the Vine interprets it that way, considering that Mark Waid wrote Tower of Babel and Batman had nothing to do with his contingency plans being stolen by Talia and the League of Assassins.

@black_wreath: it'll be tough to top Darkseid in the third movie if they put him in the 2nd movie. Crime syndicate would be potentially awesome

You're right. Mark Waid did write it. I forgot about that. I think the fact that Batman was able to create plans to take down the JL gets people on here. Even though he didn't execute them himself, they were still his plans.

Well that's ridiculous. Batman is a smart guy. Theorizing about ways in which individual members of the League could be taken out is something well within his capabilities. Implementing them all at the same time is a different situation altogether, and one Batman wasn't shown being able to do.

I agree with you. I am simply saying that is how other people on here interpret the events that happened in Tower of Babel. Yes, he wouldn't be able to do all at once. It's just that most Viners claim that Batman is a PIS machine. Just looking at the comments whenever the HellBat or Justice Buster are brought up confirm that to me.

I personally think there is a double standard on the Vine against Batman. When Batman performs a high end feat, everyone writes it off as PIS. However, when John Constantine "outsmarts" God or when Doom is able to steal an omnipotent being's power no one even gives it second thought.

It depends on who's directing and how they portray the contingencies and Batman.

But even though I have my disagreements with it, it's a great story that I wouldn't help but want to see if they made it.

The only good it would came from that movie, it would the mainstream would find Batman hilarious and all of this out of place.

Mainstream audience are not going to buy this type of things as comic book fans do.
