Justice League Unlimited - This Little Piggy television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the animated adventures of Justice League. “This Little Piggy” is a hell of a goofy episode that features Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg) being turned into a pig by the sorceress Circe (Rachel York). Needing all the help he can get, Batman (Kevin Conroy) turns to his old friend Zatanna (Jennifer Hale) to try and break the spell. When that fails, he calls on a few C-list Justice Leaguers to hunt down both the Wonder Pig (who goes missing) and Circe. All of the bizarre antics later, including Wonder Pig wandering into a slaughter house, conclude with Batman paying Circe’s price for Diana’s freedom in a way that brings both Circe and Zatanna to tears.

Justice League Unlimited - Double Date television review

Our Throwback Thursday post takes us back to the animated adventures of Justice League. If it wasn’t for “Clash” this would be my favorite episode of Justice League. There’s so much to enjoy here as the episode gives us pairings of the Question (Jeffrey Combs) and the Huntress (Amy Acker) along with Green Arrow (Kin Shriner) and Black Canary (Morena Baccarin). Opening with the Huntress failing a test and being kicked out of the League when she attempts to kill a Federal witness (who murdered her family years before), the episode moves into Huntress teaming up with the Question while Black Canary and Green Arrow are tasked with keeping the loathsome Mandragora (Glenn Shadix) safe from them. Written by Gail Simone, starring Amy Acker and Morena Baccarin, and featuring my favorite version of the Question, it would be nearly impossible for me not to love this episode. And the humor! Oh, my.

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.

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.
