Abilities

Since he has Dr. Manhattan's powers, should the abilities like peak human condition even be included? He's going to be limitless anyway. MatteJohnny (talk) 22:07, August 11, 2020 (UTC)

Reality Alteration

My apologies if I was mistaken on the Reality Alteration power, but in Speed Metal when the speedsters are trying to run away, Wally says that Bruce "used his nightmarish imagination to create a world with no escape". I assumed this meant he altered the world somehow so they couldn't escape him.--π–˜π–—π–”π–’π–Šπ–—π–”πŸ•πŸ– (talk) 04:00, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

That line referred to the Metalverse he created due to Perpetua. Perpetua was the reason he took Wally down in the first instance. In the comic you never see him transforming the world at any point, in fact it stays as it is. Also if you need further reason to believe me, the solicits of future Death Metal comics have him explicitly remaking reality only after he defeats Perpetua and gains the Anti-Crisis Energy.

Names

Throughout the article, he's called Batman Who Laughs, the One Who Laughs and just "Laughs", which just demonstrates to me how ridiculous his name is but that's beside the point. Is he ever called "Laughs" in print or is that a fan-originated nickname? --Tupka217 23:27, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

The Trivia section says: "The Batman Who Laughs is referred to as 'Laughs' by Devastator in Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt #1."
I feel like - because I probably wrote a section or two of this - my philosophy was to refer to him as "Batman" or "Batman Who Laughs", until specifically pitted against Prime Earth Batman - in which case it got confusing and I tried to differentiate the two from one another by accenting the "Who Laughs" part. --- Haroldrocks talk 00:59, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
