Bat-Mite is the story of a fifth-dimensional imp who is exiled to Earth by his own kind for crimes that are never explained and who decides to help out heroes that are, in his opinion, in need of his assistance. It starts of with him trying to assist Batman as he chases after some henchman along a cliff-side road, and then quickly goes pear-shaped from there. He ends up with two roommates named Reagan and Weed, who he aggravates with his ongoing shenanigans, like nearly burning down their apartment in an oil fire and then tormenting unsuspecting heroes with his changes to their outfits, origin stories, and even their personalities.
After a brief stint as a life coach to unappreciative superheroes, he tackles some bigger fish, mainly adding some JLA-themed changes to America, including replacing Mount Rushmore with himself, Batman, Robin, and Batgirl. (He comes first of course, since Batman is his sidekick.) After finally nabbing the bad guy and giving him the ending he always wanted, he is taken back to his own dimension to speak with those who originally banished him.
All in all it was a fun read, easy to get into, well worth checking out when you have a chance.
