Batman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman find themselves in the future. As the cybernetically enhanced Jokerz gang moves in, the future Batman, Static, and War Hawk arrive, representing the JLU. Ghoul launches an attack that Green Lantern deflects, and the other Jokerz move in. The heroes break off to fight the various villains and the future Batman Terry McGinnis is quickly overwhelmed. Static comes to his aid and gives him enough time to free himself and call a retreat. War Hawk and Wonder Woman disagree but the future Batman opens a teleportation portal with a remote control. Chuck destroys the control with his laser lance and Green Lantern tells Static to buy them some cover. The older Static blinds the villains and Green Lantern delays them with a power ring maze...

Episode Notes
The Hal Jordan who appears is the Silver Age Green Lantern, first seen in Showcase #22 (October 1959). A test pilot for Ferris Aircraft, Hal was swept away and chosen by an mortally injured Green Lantern to serve as his replacement. Despite several career changes as a villain and an undead avenger of wrongs, Hal has inevitably returned as the most recognized Green Lantern of Earth.

Episode Quotes
Static: The miracles of modern medicine – 65 is the new 30.

Bruce Wayne: Suprised to see me?
Batman: A little. I'm more suprised that I lived so long.
Terry McGinnis: Batman, Bruce Wayne. Bruce Wayne, Batman. Or have you met?

Static: Shayera was one cranky pregnant lady. Although to be fair, if I'd laid an egg that size...
War Hawk: He's kidding, Dad.

Chucko: I'm sorry.
Chronos: "I'm sorry," what? Everybody...?
Jokerz Gang: Sorry, Lord Chronos.

Chucko: (in the Age of Dinosaurs) You think I'm scared? I'll be running this dump in a few years! (a meteorite descends) Oh fooey...

Chronos: Do you know what killed the dinosaurs?
Bonk: Uhh... no, sir.
Chronos: Well, Chucko does. And unless you want to find out firsthand, you go finish off the Justice League. Skedaddle! Time is money! Actually, "time" is the non-spacial continuum in which events occur linearly, usually in the direction of increased entropy. But the clowns seem to relate better to the "money" thing.

Batman: Sometimes, the old ways are best.
Terry McGinnis: It's not gonna work. You don't know your way around here. A lot of things have changed.
Batman: Are criminals still superstitious and cowardly?
Bruce Wayne: Yep.
Batman: Good enough for me.

Ghoul: Hard to believe somebody as stupid as you ever beat the Joker.
Batman: Maybe I'm smarter than I look.

Batman: (interrogating Ghoul) My arm's getting tired. Where's Chronos?
Bruce Wayne: I can't believe I was ever that green. This is how you interrogate someone.

Ghoul: And that's everything I know!
Bruce Wayne: Everything...?
Ghoul: I wet my bed until I was 14!
Bruce Wayne: Losing my patience...

Hal Jordan: Hal Jordan. Another time shift. I'm up to speed, carry on.
Terry McGinnis: Okay, I'm starting to get a migraine.

War Hawk: What are you supposed to do when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders?
John Stewart: Plant your feet.

Chronos: How could you betray me, Enid? Everything I've done, I've done for you.
Enid: Don't blame this on me. I just wanted you to assert yourself – not destroy the universe!

Green Lantern: The Green Lanterns have a legend - no one can see the beginning of time. It's a universal law.
Batman: Write (Chronos) a ticket.
