Saw this little six-panel tidbit in The Dark Knight #17, written by Gregg Hurwitz with art by Ethan Van Sciver.

See what they did there? It’s a meta-commentary to the whole Batman-disappears-in-the-middle-of-a-conversation thing.
Have you ever had a friend like that? They pretty much say their piece and then when you start to tell them your story, they’re all, “I’m out.”
Pretty rude, Batman, pretty rude.
Anyway, I’m not sure when it started in the comics continuity, but it’s been a trope in each of the Nolan Batman movies:
So … I guess it’s about time that DC went ahead and spoofed it in the comics as well. I guess even Batman can joke about himself. My guess is that the new Man of Steel will challenge some traditional motifs about Superman, too. Probably something to do with glasses. After all, the phone booth thing has already been done.
