this episode shows that batman, although quite arrogant and stubborn, will never surrender even to authority as long as he knows he's right.
this episode also showcases the strength of the remaining members of the justice league. this episode is dedicated especially for them as they showcase their abilities in order to beat the odds and defeat the enemy. even the injured joins the fight, which proves that our heroes will never give up despite having their backs on the wall. i consider this episode an epic, since almost all the justice league members are shown fighting without the help of the originals.
