Stupidity: The gun stolen by the villain was designed by Batman, according to Luke Fox, in case the wrong person got a hold of the batsuit, which is bulletproof. As shown in the previous episode, the suit has electronic devices like a defibrillator implanted inside, which are remote controlled (huge security hazards, but never mind) and has obvious weak points, like the jaw, that a skilled fighter like Batman himself could exploit. It is not an invincibility suit by any means. So Batman built a super-gun able to kill himself and stored it into a simple warehouse while having already a perfectly working prototype (so he basically keeps 2 of them around); he is obviously an idiot who built a devastating weapon that any villain can steal and use against him (or anyone with body armor and more) for no real reason, a weapon designed to kill and not disable, even, contradicting his MO judging by the rest of the arsenal.Sammo
Factual error: Alice and Kate's little reunion underwater is disrupted by policemen that fire at them, and one of the shots reaches the transport truck, ignites it and makes it explode. The scene is baffling; forgetting the complete disregard for fellow policemen in the vehicle, how would bullets have enough strength to penetrate into an armored truck deep underwater, reach a critical weak point from that angle (the truck is upright, they should be barely get to shoot the roof of it) and still underwater cause inside the completely immersed vehicle a spark that would ignite fuel and make the whole truck explode?

Trivia: The version of Batman played by famous Bat-voice Kevin Conroy is a darker version of that from the graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. The line "the world only makes sense when you force it to" is a version of a line from that comic (also used in Batman V Superman), also "Clark always said yes to anything with a badge or a flag." There are also elements from Batman Beyond, which first aired in 1999 (hence Earth-99), in which Conroy voiced an older Bruce Wayne mentoring a new Batman. The whole scene is full of nods to other versions - describing Kryptonite as "a little souvenir from the old hometown" is a Lex Luthor line from the original Superman movie, and him describing Superman as "strange visitor from another planet, with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men" comes from Superman serials from the 40s and 50s.Jon Sandys
