History

(Batman II #35, 36) - Joker dosed the Justice League with Joker Toxin ordered them to kill Batman. Wonder Woman flew into Wayne Tower and snatched up Bruce Wayne. Bruce realized she must be under mind control and demanded to know who was responsible, but Wonder Woman just told him the Justice League were in Gotham to kill him because they hated him. Bruce had protocols specifically designed to deal with the Justice League if need be, and enacted Plan Fenrir. Alfred Pennyworth released harmless gas around Wayne Tower, forcing the authorities to evacuate the area fearing a terrorist attack, and Bruce changed into Batman and donned power armor meant to counter his teammates powers. He covered Wonder Woman with the bind of veils, an artifact forged by Hephaestus not long after he’d made Wonder Woman’s lasso. Batman had acquired it on the magical black market, and it fulfilled its’ purpose of paralyzing Wonder Woman. Batman was then attacked by Flash, so he covered the streets in a frictionless coating, causing him to crash into the side of a building. Aquaman was his next opponent, and he shot him with magnesium carbonate foam, draining the moisture from his body. Superman confronted Batman and when he started laughing maniacally the Caped Crusader figured out that his teammates were being controlled by the Joker. The Joker Toxin continued to run its’ course, causing the Justice League’s skin to turn white and their faces to break into rictus grins. The gauntlets of the power armor contained miniature red suns Batman had acquired from dead solar systems with Ray Palmer, draining Superman’s power. Batman finished Superman off by spitting a rubberized capsule laced with kryptonite at him. After Batman subdued the Justice League they were taken to A.R.G.U.S. where they were treated by an antitoxin of Batman’s own design. They’d be hospitalized for at least a week, and Batman feared Joker was planning something big, and had already taken Batman’s most powerful allies off the board
