Here's a little snippet from Green Lantern: Blackest Night #0, showing a scene from the Justice League's early days:
Waitaminute -- WHAT did Hal say? Let's see that again in instant replay:

Well, except maybe from the waist down.
(And, as usual, Aquaman proves that he's smarter than most people give him credit for.)
On that note -- Everyone get out your silliest Batman scans! Sally has announced that this is LET'S BASH BATMAN WEEK! Woo hoo!
