Justice League - Secret Origins television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post this week takes us back to the three-part opener of Justice League. When Earth is attacked by a strange alien force released from the graveyards of Mars, a group of heroes will band together to save the world. Along with Batman (Kevin Conroy) and Superman (George Newbern), both previously introduced on their own series, the team includes the Flash (Michael Rosenbaum), who was introduced in “Speed Demons,” and four new heroes in Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg), Hawkgirl (Maria Canals-Barrera), the Martian Manhunter (Carl Lumbly), and Green Lantern John Stewart (Phil LaMarr). While we’ll get to know more of each of them over the course of the series, we get concise introductions here that work well in framing each character and their spot on the team.

Super-Villains: Justice League Masterminds of CrimeDC Comics Super-Villains: Justice League Masterminds of Crime collects four two-part animated episodes and five single standalone episodes from Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Batman Beyond in this two-disc set.

The set includes the Justice League taking on Amazo and the android’s return to Earth, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, Flash, and the Martian Manhunter fighting Despero on his homeworld, Lex Luthor putting together a Secret Society of super-villains, Grodd forming the Legion of Doom, a future Justice League adventure from Batman Beyond, and – my favorite of the collection – an episode where the Flash and Lex Luthor’s brains are switched causing trouble for both the Justice League and the Legion of Doom.

Justice League Unlimited - Clash

With a new Superman in now in theaters every now and then I’ll continue to take a look back at the hero’s more memorable moments on both the big and small screen. The Big Red Cheese vs. The Big Blue Boyscout. The only appearance Captain Marvel (Jerry O’Connell) would make on Justice League Unlimited certainly didn’t disappoint as the newest member of the Justice League finds himself immediately at odds with one of the founders due to Superman‘s (George Newbern) growing concerns about what Lex Luthor (Clancy Brown) is really up to.

justice-league-unlimited-season-two-dvdAfter peaking when the show was re-launched as Justice League Unlimited Season One, which included wrapping up most of the storylines and putting a coda to end the series, the show was renewed for a final 13 episodes. 

Since all the large story arcs had been played out, Season Two would be about Villains, unfinished business, Villains, traveling to new parts of the DCU including Central City, Skartaris, and Nanga Parbat, and, did I mention, Villains.  Superman would finally cut loose, Batman would crack a joke, the Flash would take on his rogues gallery, Lex Luthor would search for Braniac, Hawkman would (finally!) show up, Supergirl traveled to the future to meet the Legion, Darkseid returned, oh, and there was this new storyline based of the Challenge of the SuperFriends and the Legion of Doom.

Unlimited Justice League!  Holy Moley!!

  • Title: Justice League Unlimited – Season Two
  • tv.com: link

justice-league-unlimited-season-one-dvdAfter two seasons on Cartoon Network Justice League was revamped into a series not only about the seven greatest heroes of the DC Universe, but including all the super-heroes who gave their lives to the pursuit of justice.  Fans of any incarnation of the Justice League will find something to enjoy here as the series tries to give a nod to each incarnation.

After the events of Starcrossed, where the league battled the invading Thanagarian army, Hawkgirl is no longer a member of the team, and, now aware of larger threats, the remaining six original members decide to open up the ranks of the Justice League and recruit more heroes.

Gone, for the most part, are the two episode story arcs.  Instead we get individual episodes that pair up original members with some of the new members of the team which include Supergirl, Green Arrow, The Question, Black Canary, The Huntress, Red Tornado, Ray, Rocket Red, Dr. Fate, Captain Atom, the Atom, Atom Smasher, and more.
