Tonight's the final episode of Justice League.  I hope it's away better than Teen Titan's series finale.  They reaired "Things Change" and it reminded me of how disappointing it was.  I hope JLU doesn't leave us hanging.

It was everything that a final episode should be.

No complaints.

Yes, it was great.

Too bad they had to ruin the show with all those characters. I'm definitely going to buy the season 1 and 2 DVDs. I wish they would at least put it in syndication. It was on Saturdays at 2am for awhile, but then that stopped.

"It's Lex-flippin'-Luthor!"

Also, massive cameos are awesome, although I always want them to stick in someone SUPER obscure.

What, Commander Steel wasn't obscure enough?

Not as obscure as someone like the Fury, or Pariah, or Dolphin (okay, so Dolphin's not that obscure, but considering there's no Aquaman...)

It seems like more of a Teen Titans thing. I recognize Superman (or at least a young version of himself, possibly Superboy?) But anyone know who the rest are?

Other members that have been rumored to show up include Cosmic Boy, Triplicate Girl, and XS.

Man. I haven't bought a comic book in over 20 years (yet I like to watch JL and JLU).  The Legion of Super Heroes - weren't they suppose to be based in the 30th Century?

Of those names that Kryten listed, I recognize Superboy and Saturn Girl...

I vaguely remember a 'Princess Projectra'.

I am disappointed at the lack of Matter-Eater Lad, but hopefully he'll show up in an episode.

Matter-Eater Lad is so lame it's cool. Hopefully they'll be lots of Triplicate Girl, I always thought she was neat. And no Dream Girl? Thanks, God.

Well, I hope that they do have Cosmic Boy on the show, as he is one of the original three.  Making a Legion cartoon without Cosmic Boy would be like making a Teen Titans cartoon without Wonder Girl.

Actually, Cosmic Boy's been confirmed. Wil "Shut up, Wesley" Wheaton's doing the voice.

I don't like the way they're drawn. Mainly their weird-ass legs. Since when are calves long and extremely muscular, while thighs are short emaciated?

*BUMP*

So, did anyone else catch Superman: Brainiac Attacks on Cartoon Network?

It didn't follow the same continuity as Justice League, but it had the same character designs as Superman: The Animated Series, and most of the same voice actors, including the return of Tim Daly as Superman.  Powers Boothe replaced Clancy Brown as Luthor and Lance Henriksen replaced Corey Burton as Brainiac, though.

Was it me, or did Luthor go down about a hundred IQ points in this one?

This movie was nothing more than a standalone tie-in for Superman Returns, from the moment it was announced. I'm not considering it in the the DCAU continuity - though, it was done by a few Timm alumni (it was directed by the same dude who directed Return of the Joker, and Sander Schwartz was one of the producers.)

On the movie, it felt more like one of the old Fleischer Superman cartoons, and I think that was kind of intended. If anyone's seen the Christopher Reeves Superman movies, Lex was played as a campy bad guy in those, so the campy Lex here didn't feel that out of place. Hell, campy Lex was the only thing that kept the movie entertaining - and I found it kind of funny that the guy who did Grodd's voice on JLU played Lex here. I did have a problem with Brainiac having emotion in his voice, though. The action scenes were well-coreographed, but they all went on too long and really seemed like nothing but filler near the end of the movie.

I was enjoying the movie - until the scene. I don't know why Capizzi decided to go with that, but it completely ruined the movie for me. If it hadn't been for that scene, and if Brainiac had lacked emotion (Brainiac grinning just made me cringe), the movie wouldn't have been that bad. It was less than than mediocre with them, unfortunately.

That's good, because it isn't meant to be.

I liked the campy Luthor, and I thought that Powers Boothe did a great job as his voice.  I agree that this version of Brainiac wasn't that great, but hearing Tim Daly as the voice of Superman again more than made up for that.  I never really liked George Newbern as Superman.

Thanks to UJoF at TGN, I have the animated Legion of Superheros sneak peek clip (bottom of the article) they showed during the 'Behind the Shield' special on Kid's WB on the 15th.

Aside from the Pokeballs on the building behind them, I don't think it looks half bad, even though they're having to call Superboy Superman now.

Surprised no one's mentioned this yet, but DC and Warner Bros. Animation announced three PG-13 DC DTV movies. Bruce Timm will serve as Supervising Producer of all 3:

 http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=78213

 
Quote
• Justice League: New Frontier – written by Stan Berkowitz (Justice League), with Darwyn Cooke serving as story and visual consultant
• Superman: Doomsday – produced by Bruce Timm and written by Duane Capizzi, from a story by Timm & Capizzi
• Teen Titans: The Judas Contract – written by Marv Wolfman and Tom DeSanto, produced by DeSanto.

Paul Levitz interview about the DTV movies.

More on the Judas Contract DTV.

If it's unclear to people, Superman: Doomsday is, yes, an adaptation of the Death of Superman storyline.

It's also noted in the Newsarama article that there's gonna be 2-3 of these PG-13 DC animated movies a year line, so we may get to see other notable DC storylines animated.

On a personal note, these are obviously a shot at the Marvel Avengers DTV movies, but what the hell? This is still pretty cool.

Why in Rao's name would anyone want to make a movie about that?  That was an awful, awful storyline.  The whole thing was just a gimmick to sell more comic books.  The only good things to come out of it were John Henry Irons, and the new Superboy character.

I never watched Justice League. I'm sure it's a good show I'm mainly a Batman guy (though I've been intrigued by STAS) and I'd prefer to watch Batman in his own series.

I would love it if Bruce did an adaptation of Knightfall for Batman but it looks like that'll never happen since I hear he's done with Batman.
