Justice League Action - Skyjacked television review

“Skyjacked” is a fun Justice League Action short featuring Harley Quinn (Tara Strong) and Poison Ivy (Natasha Leggero) attempting to steal a Javelin from the Justice League which is complicated by the arrival of Batman (Kevin Conroy). Ever since Batman: The Animated Series the team-up of Harley and Ivy has provided some enjoyable moments on both TV and in comics, and “Skyjacked” continues that trend.

Justice League Action - Drivers Ed television review

While taking a driving test through space with Space Cabbie (Patton Oswalt), Stargirl (Natalie Lander) leaps into action to stop the Red Lantern Zilius Zox (Armin Shimerman) from robbing a space ATM in an asteroid field (because where else is a space ATM going to be?). The goofy short doesn’t make a lick of sense (even our heroine questions what she’s doing since her Cosmic Staff allows her to fly through space), but still provides its share of fun including fitting in another oddball Silver Age character.

Justice League Action - Race Against Crime TV review

Who is faster, Superman (Jason J. Lewis) or the Flash (Charlie Schlatter)? DC has milked this controversy for decades since the pair’s first race 60 years ago. We’ve seen races in multiple comics as well as on television in Superman: The Animated Series‘ “Speed Demons.” “Race Against Crime” follows the basic format of stories like this as the world gathers to watch the pair race only to see a super-villain interfere and stop from having a true winner ever declared. This time around that villain is Lex Luthor (James Woods) who takes advantage of the tracking technology to bleed speed from both racers and siphon it into his own armor allowing him control of both speed and time.

Justice League Action - Plastic Man of Steel TV review

What’s Superman (Jason J. Lewis) to do when Lois Lane (Tara Strong) uncovers his secret identity? In a variation of a story we’ve seen played out in multiple formats over the years, “Plastic Man of Steel” sees Clark Kent call on Plastic Man (Dana Snyder) to stand-in for the Man of Steel to throw DCU’s best reporter off the story. Even if the sudden appearance of Lex Luthor (James Woods) is unexpected, and throws a temporary wrench into the charade, Plastic Man proves up to the challenge as the Plastic Man of Steel.

Justice League Action - System Error TV review

“System Error” is a clever idea for an episode that fits well into the time constraints of Justice League Action. Batman (Kevin Conroy) awakes in the Batmobile confused as to how he got there and discovers his other Justice League pals are fighting odd pairings of various super-villains. Discrepancies in the villains behavior and abilities, and the League’s inability to fight back against Parademons, leads the Dark Knight Detective to discover that he, Wonder Woman (Rachel Kimsey), Superman (Jason J. Lewis), Cyborg (Khary Payton), and Booster Gold (Diedrich Bader) are all robots in an elaborate simulation run by Darkseid (Jonathan Adams) who is looking for weaknesses in his enemies. What the master of Apokolips failed to count on was just how good his replicas turned out to be.
