Take this exchange between The Caped Crusader and Big Blue:

Batman: “Why do you always change in a phone booth?”

Superman: “I like them. A blue one showed up on Krypton once. My father said it’s where heroes come from.”

Batman: “Was it bigger on the inside?”

Superman: “YES! I think my pediatrician owned it. He’s the one who told Jor-El to send me to Earth. He said that being the last makes us stronger.”

Batman: “I’m familiar with The Doctor. I’m surprised he didn’t save Krypton.”

The Doctor: “Fixed point in time. I am so sorry.”

Batman and Robin, Gambit and Rogue, Deadpool and Spider-Man, Bane and random henchman #5, they’re all here to do battle with superhero stereotypes…and safe-for-work dialogue.
