We might finally have discovered the cause of the fight at the center of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

How It Should Have Ended’s running take on Batman and Superman often shows them joking around over coffee, but when Superman slights Batman, things get personal. Instead of talking it out, Batman puts together an all-star team of superheroes from action movies, science fiction, and fantasy, à la Taylor Swift in her song Bad Blood. (Apparently the two have a history.)

Batman may have a formidable team, but with most of the Justice League standing behind Superman, the Man of Steel’s got some power on his side too. You really can’t rule either of them out.
