Green Lantern edit

  • [to Wonder Woman] Get him out of there. His showboating is gonna ruin the entire plan. Oh, great, now I'm Batman.
  • Here's the plan. Green Lantern kicks Superman's ass. TMZ's got the video.
  • I'm Green Lantern, dammit!

Desaad edit

  • [to Superman] The Parademon hives on Earth were ill-equipped to process your flesh, my prize. But here in my personal laboratory I can spice your Kryptonian genetic code to create a new form... a super-Parademon in the service of Darkseid. And once we have our champion... we will seize the other supers and break them as well. All hail Darkseid.

Dialogue edit

Green Lantern: As I was saying, Green Lantern can do anything.
Batman: Except shut up, apparently.
Green Lantern: Wow, someone forgot to tape their True Blood tonight.
Batman: I'm not a vampire.
Green Lantern: Seriously? I thought it was the darkness and the vanishing, and the, what, super strength?
Batman: I've got none of that.
Green Lantern: Can you fly?
Batman: Yes, in a plane.
Green Lantern: Wait, are you telling me...that you're just some dude in a bat costume? [Batman smirks to confirm this] Are you freaking kidding me? What, nobody asked you to prom so you now dress as a bat and prowl around your parents' basement?

Wonder Woman: [taken aback] You've gathered to protest ... me?
[She points to the man leading the protest]
Wonder Woman: You! What is your problem with me?
Pinstriped Loudmouth: You want the truth? You swing that sword with a smile and you scare normal people. And you dress like a whore!
Wonder Woman: [completely unconvinced] This is not your truth. [wraps the Lasso around the man] The Lasso compels you. Now tell us your truth.
Pinstriped Loudmouth: I cross-dress in a Wonder Woman costume outfit. It makes me feel powerful.
[The crowd looks surprised. Wonder Woman giggles and retracts her Lasso]
Wonder Woman: Embrace your truth, my friend. My outfit makes me feel powerful too.

Green Lantern: Out of my way, Batman.
Batman: Your arm is broken, idiot.
Green Lantern: [creates an energized cast from his ring] I can handle this. Move!
Batman: You're gonna die.
Green Lantern: Then I'll die.
Batman: What are you trying to prove?
Green Lantern: I'm not trying to prove anything, you phenomenal douchebag! Don't act like you know me. You don't. Why do you even give a damn?
Batman: I'd say I don't, but you're being reckless. And believe it or not, we're just somewhat…alike.
Green Lantern: We are nothing alike.
Batman: We're fighting alongside an alien, an Amazon, a human lightning bolt, a cyborg and a speedster. As far as I can tell, Hal, you and I are the only normal people here.
Green Lantern: [defensive attitude fades] I never told you my name.
Batman: Saw it on your flight suit.
Green Lantern: Y'know, despite what you said, you're pretty south of normal, spooky. You know that, right?
[Batman pauses, and then removes his cowl and cape, revealing his real face to Green Lantern]
Bruce Wayne: My name is Bruce Wayne. When I was 10, I watched my parents get shot dead by a mugger, just like that. I've spent my life training to fight the same sort of criminals that took them from me. But this, this is different. This isn't about me.
Green Lantern: Uh, you're telling me this why?
Bruce Wayne: Because this right here? It's not about me, and it's not about you. Get out of your own way, Jordan. Focus on what's important. Everyone else. Regroup with the others.
Green Lantern: And do what exactly?
Bruce Wayne: [as he picks up discarded clothes and beanie to disguise himself as a civilian to be captured] You're loud, Jordan. They'll listen to you if you got something to say. Try to at least sound smart. [he waves his hands to catch the attention of a Parademon overhead, which swoops down and snatches him up, taking him off to Apokolips, which is what Batman wants]
Green Lantern: Bruce Wayne, huh? [smiles] Bastard's crazier than me, that's damn sure.

Green Lantern: Flash, my man! Great to see you. [pitifully tries to do a secret handshake with Flash] Oh, yeah, and that's Batman.
The Flash: Batman's real?
Green Lantern: [utterly deadpan] Yeah, he's over there.
The Flash: Wait, what? [zips over to Batman] It is a real honor to meet you, sir, Batman. Sir, Batman, sir. Ahem.
Green Lantern: Don't bother. Guy's a total tool.
Batman: [shakes hands with Flash] I followed your efforts in Central City, Flash. You do tight, efficient work.
[The Flash looks awestruck at this]
Green Lantern: Hey, Barry, you, uh, got a little something brown there, right on your nose.
[The Flash frowns in annoyance]

[Batman removes the ring from Green Lantern, he changes back to Hal Jordan]
Batman: What's this do?
Hal Jordan: Huh?
Batman: No buttons. I assume it works off concentration.
Hal Jordan: How did you do that?
Batman: [smirks] You weren't concentrating.
[Annoyed, Hal puts the ring back on and changes back into Green Lantern]
Green Lantern: You won't do that again.
Batman: Unless I want to.

Wonder Woman: I can't believe people are no longer afraid of us.
Superman: Or that they think we're a team. We're not a team. But I am please to meet some folks who get me.
Wonder Woman: Yes, it was good to walk among a pantheon again.
Superman: How do you mean?
Wonder Woman: Hades, Apollo, Hermes, Zeus... each a god in their right.
Superman: And me?
Wonder Woman: I have never met anyone like you, Superman. God or mortal.
[Superman smiles at her]

Green Lantern: Costume? This is my uniform.
Batman: Quiet.
Green Lantern: Oh, you wanna bark orders, after I did the heavy lifting and pulled everyone together?
Batman: You're referring to when you botched simple directives and Wonder Woman led the charge?
Green Lantern: Cyborg showed you a video?
Batman: [smirks] He e-mailed it to me.
Green Lantern: I really hate you, Bats.
Batman: Rivalry helps build bonds, Jordan.

Green Lantern: They don't like us much, huh?
Batman: They're afraid of people like us.
Green Lantern: And that's somehow a good thing?
Batman: As far as I'm concerned, it's necessary.

Darkseid: Kryptonian, you are coming with me.
Superman: Like hell, I am!

President: These super-friends use their super-powers to protect us.
Green Lantern: [whispering] Seriously? We are damn sure not friends.
Batman: It'd be smart to let them think we're both.
Green Lantern: Why?
Batman: It'll keep Gotham P.D. off my back, and the Air Force off yours. It'll make our jobs a whole lot easier from here on out.
Green Lantern: I'm gonna let ya know right now, Bats. Working with you is gonna be the furthest thing from easy.
Batman: If there's a will there's a way, Jordan, and you're the one with the power of will.

Cyborg: The computer is not responding. Come on, you stupid machine, work!
Computer Voice: Network connect.
Cyborg: Yes.
Computer Voice: Insufficient energy.
Cyborg: Shit. It's programmed, but I don't have the juice to push it. I need a huge blast of power.
Shazam: Shouldn't be a problem.
[He takes hold of the Mother Box and him and Cyborg shoot up into the sky]
Shazam: SHAZAM!
[He charges the Mother Box with huge arcs of lightning bolts]

Cyborg: I think what Lantern is saying is that it's time for some teamwork. So let's pull it together.
Shazam: Yeah, baby, clap it up.
The Flash: What's the plan, then?
Green Lantern: Well, he blast those beams out of his eyes, right?
Wonder Woman: It's settled, then. We blind him.
Green Lantern: That's as good as a plan as any. Yeah, we follow and we stay out of sight. I'll turn on the fireworks to get his attention. Princess, you in striking distance and stab that son of a bitch in the eyes.
Wonder Woman: Like poor damned Oedipus.
Shazam: Yeah, what the hot Greek chick said.
The Flash: And the hordes of monsters raining from the sky, whadda we do about them?
Cyborg: I might be able to send them back where they came from.
Green Lantern: Good enough for me. Here we go, team - we got this!

Green Lantern: Good god, he's gonna kill us.
Batman: No, he won't. You'll bruise. But you don't kill. Do you... Clark?
[Superman stops dead in front of Batman]
Superman: You've made your point... [uses his X-Ray vision on Batman] Bruce Wayne.
Green Lantern: [confused] Who the hell is "Bruce Wayne?"

Shazam: I don't know, a team? I've got a lot of responsibilities.
Wonder Woman: As do I.
Green Lantern: Well, I have a whole universe to protect, people, so there you go.
The Flash: Come on, we can do it together.
Green Lantern: Yeah? Can you fly in space?
Superman: I can.
Green Lantern: Not my point. Look, we're not friends. We're not a team.
The Flash: I don't agree, Hal. I kind of liked being a part of something.
Green Lantern: Yeah, you would. Listen, this was just a one-time deal, okay?
Batman: And what if something should happen again?
Green Lantern: Please, what could possibly happen?

[last lines]
President: That said, I am very pleased to introduce you... [blocks the mic and turns to the Justice League] Gee, I didn't even ask. Do you guys have a name?
Shazam: Yes, we do.
Cyborg: We do?
Shazam: That's right. You can call us the Super Seven!
[Everyone groans disapprovingly]
Green Lantern: Please don't call us that.
Superman: The Super Seven?
Shazam: What, you don't like it?
