Then again, a young Bruce Wayne witnesses his parents' death, freaks out, gets a couple bullets bounced off his chest, and heat-rays off the face of his parents' killer. He's not the Joker this time, I can tell you that.
Dah! I HATED this bit of the story. First up, Kal-el didn't get his powers until his late teens-early 20s. They don't just get turned on by an adrenaline rush.
Also, a bigger beef, the heat-ray thing should never have happened. The whole reason Bruce became the Batman is because the little kid stood impotently by as his parents were shot, and felt a need to throw out some vengeance as an adult. If he lashes back at the criminal instantly, he's already acted on vengeance. The little kid actually made a difference, and is not helpless, and tht helplessness is what molded the Batman.
Aside from that, cool concept. I think Speeding Bullets
was the first official Elseworlds title-bearing novel, actually.
Hovercrafts, because they're amphibious. kinda.
