    Yeah that's it.

    It was a fun read so long as you're willing to accept the conceit that a superpowered Kal-el/Bruce Wayne would adopt more or less the same methods, stealth and fear, that the regular Batman would.

    It's the number one most generic Elseworlds concept (mix two superheros) done from beginning to end perfectly logically without any imagination put into it whatsoever. Basically a complete waste of time

    Good story, but the Luthor as Joker (not really a spoiler; you can see it coming in the story from miles away) thing really didn't work for me.

    You've just described at least half of the comics I've ever read.

    The main thing that bothered me about it was that he switched from being "Batman" to "Superman" at the end. That's the kind of thing that makes me sympathize with people who complain that many (not all) of DC's Elseworlds stories seem to feel they are required to revert as much as possible "back to the same old Sacred Status Quo" at the end of the story.

    It wouldn't work. The most important part of Superman's origin is him being sent to Earth from Krypton, and the main bit of Batman's origin is his parent's getting shot. Speeding Bullets basically merges both of the origins.

    To do it the other way around would basically be: Mon and Martha Kent have their own biological child. They aren't killed so he has no powers and no major motivation. The End.

    It wouldn't work if you stick to the origins being the same.

    But what if Bruce Wayne's parents died in a terrible Earthquake or something like that. An Earthquake cause by a mad scientist type. So Bruce vows to make himself powerful enough to stop an Earthquake or move fast enough to get everyone out in time, as well as bring mad scientists to book for their crimes?
    A young Bruce Wayne could then spend years in the Batcave working on a formula tha gives him simmilar powers to Superman. He goes out without a suit, just plain clothes and stops a tidal wave or whatever and the papers start writing about a Superman. So he creates the Superman emblem and there you go. It could work. You might not like it but it's workable.

    Hourman?

    Kinda takes away the appeal from Batman if he has superpowers.

    That said, I'd rather see Batjerk with the Green Lantern ring.
    Once he finishes cleaning up the streets of Gotham, he might go after white-collar crime or after third-world dictators.

    He could easily become Sinestro...
