Plenty of fans had a field day picking apart Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, though you probably didn’t expect Justice League Action to join in on the fun
In the “It’s A Trap!” episode, Lex Luthor lures Superman into a trap, complete with Kryptonite gas and a customized weapon (via Reddit). As Luthor explains his strategy, he reveals the weapon he will kill Superman with, which is a wooden bat with kryptonite rocks and nails in it.
Superman is not impressed, saying, “You made a bat? You just lodged a chunk of kryptonite into a stick.”
This is, of course, a reference to Batman V Superman, which had Batman crafting a special weapon to take down Superman. That weapon turned out to be a spear with a kryptonite tip, not something very practical for battling someone who can fly and move at super speeds.
You can watch the full clip above.
