Yes, it will.

After my parents... I see.

That was the case with a lot of people years ago.

[Batman turns his head slightly, breaking eye contact with Leslie. He'd only felt this way once before, when dealing with the other Batman. Even so, he'd come to know the emotion intimately in his efforts to help the world recover from the Justice Lords - shame. And now more than ever he felt like he'd been looking into the eyes of his parents, seeing his sins reflected back at him.]

Maybe more different than you realize. I'm sorry, Leslie.

[There's that shame still: his voice, ever stoic behind the cowl, falters: only for a moment, and to those who didn't know Batman and Bruce both, it might even go unnoticed, but it's there.]

It was so easy to convince ourselves we were doing the right thing.

That's me, though. It doesn't explain how someone like Superman was able to fall so completely.

He had his chance. His powers are gone. Of the original Justice Lords-- of the original Justice League-- I'm the only one left.

And he would have killed Flash. Maybe someday he'll come to. [It's painful, trying to keep an optimistic spirit in the city of Gotham.]

Still, the war continues.

It just has rules again.

Right.

...I should go.
