Batman was the leader of the Insurgency, aiming to take down Superman and the followers of his regime. Many people still question the desperate measures he used to try and take down the rogue god.
Dr.Fate managed to show Batman the horrors that would happen if the fight against Superman would rage on for eternity, now, he and Superman's allies have put aside their differences to pacify the entire multiverse and beyond.
Doctor Fate pushed Batman's abilities to their limit, allowing him to become the strongest version of Batman in the multiverse. Batman is the only person Doctor Fate trusts to be able to take over his reign if he believes Fate has become corrupted by immense power.
Wielder of a green lantern ring, gifted from Hal Jordan, Batman now displays incredible power and willingness to take on his foes.
For many years Gotham had feared my name, "Batman", "the Dark Knight", all the criminals feared it. They would roam the streets terrified of the symbol I created, and for years I silently roamed them, trying to bring justice were a corrupt city would not. It wasn't considered a great life by some, but I swore I'd never give up since that fateful night in Crime Alley.
It wouldn't be long till I was further tested by the tragedy in Metropolis, a whole nation shocked at, not only what a criminal could do, but what a hero could be brought down to. Superman was once a great ally and friend of mine, now he's a ruthless dictator, willing to kill anyone who opposes him and his vision of "peace". For years we fought, and lost more to such tragic events; My own son Dick Grayson murdered in front of my own eyes, Billy Batson, a child murdered at the hands of Superman, the list goes on...
After the defeat of Brainiac, I was in battle with Clark, in the Batcave, when from nowhere Fate intervened our battle. He came forth with a warning to which he showed us the world reduced to nothing but a fiery brimstone. "This will be the fate of all worlds if you do not cease your conflict!" He continued, "Your senseless rivalry will escalate through reality causing the multiverse to become unstable and unleash unstoppable cosmic horrors. You must adhere to order, or we will all be consumed by chaos!" Whilst it was difficult to put our differences aside, we could not have prepared for the intense years of rebuilding to come, both of our world, and our relationships.
I spent months rebuilding the old watchtower into one of my finest achievements, "Brother Eye", a portal that can cross universes, monitor intelligence, and a prison designed to house dangerous threats. Whilst myself and the top scientists were building both Brother Eye, and our relationships, other foundations were being made to prepare us for the upcoming battles across the multiverse and possibly beyond.
The more experienced combat members, such as myself, were teaching younger generation of heroes to become mature and experienced in the art of combat. Whilst I could never be their full time mentor, I trusted Kuai Liang, learning of his respect, honour, and experience as Grandmaster of the Lin Kuei. I hope he trains them hard for the battles yet to come, and I trust the Teen Titans will become good team once again.
Already being in a tough relationship with most of this universes supervillains, it was agreed upon that they would be best off fighting their own fights, not that they cared much about this anyway about this decision. Rules were made that killing and other criminal actions would be monitored by the powers above us, and although there is some great punishment would come to them for their actions, they are some freedoms when it comes to killing such as beings of pure evil.
Some of the world's most chaotic villains all together in a single group. While it sounds bad in a sentence, I assured Superman and his fellow ex-Regime allies that they'd be monitored and controlled to do what they do best under "safe conditions". Instead of being used to deal with threats at the control of a government lackey, we'd repurpose them to steal artifacts, money or materials from beings unworthy of them. I personally vouched for Snart being the leader as I trusted him being the least maniacal of the bunch, plus his code of no killing made him the wisest of the bunch.
The Sirens, an all female group that decided that they wanted the freedom to explore freely throughout the multiverse and enjoy "the best that it has to offer". Whilst I am concerned on the havoc they could cause, I'm sure Black Canary will keep them in check. Sometimes I wish Selina was fighting alongside me more often in the JLM, but sometimes it's also good to be free of her claws
Batman's story starts about how you'd expect; A young Bruce Wayne falls into a cave where he disturbs sleeping bats, that terrifies him. He later becomes an orphan when he requests to leave a theatre after being scared of the play, due to the actors portraying bats on stage, which triggers his memories of his accident. After exiting the theatre, his parents are held at gunpoint and are gunned down in what would later become Crime Alley. He then spends his childhood raised by his Butler Alfred Pennyworth and eventually leaves Gotham city to train with the League of Assassins under Ra's al Ghul. After training under the league for many years, Bruce Wayne returns from his sabbatical, he dons "the Batman" Persona and begins to fight crime in Gotham City.
Spending many years fighting crime in Gotham, Batman makes repeatedly battles and puts away notorious criminals such as Bane, Penguin, Riddler, and his main nemesis The Joker. During this time he also has an on and off relationship with Selina Kyle aka Catwoman, and recruits people who join the Batfamily either under the Robin persona, or the Batgirl/Batwoman identity. Some would go on to join there own teams, whilst others would encounter tragedy vis-à-vis Jason Todd (Who would be killed by the Joker) and Barbara Gordon (Who would be paralyzed by the Joker).
Later, Batman would be one of the founding members of the Justice League alongside: Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, The Flash, Hawkgirl and Green Lantern. United under the threat of Darkseid, the JLA would delay the New God's invasion of Earth after he retreats in bitter disappointment, noting Superman as his main reason for failure. A while after the invasion, Doomsday does battle with Superman, to which Doomsday is left dead (albeit one of his death's) and Superman is mortally wounded. While Superman would later be revived and would recover, it would later be an integral part to the rise of the regime.
After the events of Flashpoint, the boundaries between universes were weakened. This allowed triggered a fusion between Darksied and Shao Khan, after Superman and Raiden defeated them in combat simultaneously, causing the Mortal Kombat and DC universe to start to merge together. At first, people on both sides started to fight one another for dominance because of an overwhelming rage they plagued each side, but they both realised that in order to stop the continuous merge, they teamed up to defeat the newly formed Dark Khan.
This is where the main continuity changes and the events of Injustice begin. It starts of with Batman deducing that Lois is pregnant with Superman's child. Batman jokes that he can tell Superman is nervous and that since Doomsday isn't around, it must be that Lois is carrying Superman's child. This will become the last great memory between the two.
After Joker attempts to mind control the JLA and fails to retain control of Superman, after some help from Batman, Joker takes this as a challenge to corrupt him. He then succeeds in doing so by poisoning Superman with Scarecrow's fear toxin, making him believe that Lois is Doomsday. Superman kills Lois, and since Lois' heartbeat was linked to a nuke in Metropolis, the bomb exploded, destroying its inhabitants.
Batman later forms the insurgency to fight against Superman's Regime, and engages in a 5 year war, desperately seeking the aid of others to help put Superman down. The first year consists of recruiting help from criminals and heroes to aid in Batman's insurgency. Year two involves the help of the Green Lanterns, which fails as Superman helps kill Mogo, Ganthet, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, and many other Green Lanterns. Year three feature the insurgency involving the JLD, baiting Trigon into fighting and defeating Superman, however Mr. Mxyzptlk intervenes causing reality to distort forcing Superman and Batman to join forces and seal them both in the void. Year four sees Ares trying to use the conflict of the two factions to his own advantage to manipulate the gods of Olympus through the aid of Darkseid. The end result is the Death of Hercules and the Highfather convincing Zeus to stop being manipulated by Ares, with Zeus and the rest of the Gods (with the exception of Ares) leaving Earth. Year five involves the insurgency's last stand, with Batman's plan to recruit the help of their doppelgangers from an alternate universe, to which he just about succeeds in doing so.
