Yeah, I felt the same way about Sam Hamm's goofy sonic super-soldier mind-transfer stuff in "Blind Justice." (Well, not really, but I fail to see how that's any less improbable and surreal than what Morrison's doing.)

More to the point, Morrison's using Batman #156, where Batman does exactly what you're describing. The tale was reprinted in t he 1980s in the first volume of The Greatest Batman Stories Ever Told, a book whose selection committee included Denny O'Neil, Neal Adams, and Bill Finger among others.
