The League is her idea, and it's Barbara's mastery of Earth's technology what makes possible the illusion that some of the many roles he plays have allied as a force for good. It's an idea meant to inspire people and give would-be conquerors pause.
Barbara also gives him the solution to another problem, his fear of being a delaying force in Earth's development. She comes up with Lex Luthor, and runs his company when J'onn is playing a different persona, which is most of the time.
He knows she hasn't told him all of her plans, but he still grants her a telepathic privacy he has come to deny most humans. It was his experiment to rehabilitate a small-time crook that created the Joker. J'onn owes her, and besides... He's been alone too long.
