> Seem to anyone like a plothole?

The real plothole is that Batman seems to have known nothing about MM the whole time, but at the end he claims to have been monitoring and hacking the watchtower since its construction began. This would imply that he had access to the files for months/years in advance. So was there nothing in the watchtower's files about J'onn? If there were files on him, why the charade?

Not really, some time had clearly passed between the defeat and the meeting between Bruce and J'onn. Watchtower construction didn't start until AFTER the invasion was over.

Batman mentions that he had been monitoring for months (not years) and had been wondering when J'onn would tell him about it, not about himself.
