Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Comic book superhero fans, get ready for "your inner geek fix," to quote producer Bruce Timm in the series retrospective included as one of this collection's special features. Justice League Unlimited expands the League to include a galaxy full of iconic and cult faves from the DC Comics universe: Green Arrow, the Question, Dr. Fate, Hawk, Wildcat, Vixen, Dove, Red Tornado, and others. Justice League Unlimited emerged from the upheaval of Justice League's second-season finale, "Starcrossed," which saw the expulsion of Hawkgirl and a pledge to rebuild. The series returned with a new name, new heroes, and a new and liberating comic sensibility. Not that Justice League Unlimited skimps on the action (the two-parter "The Once and Future Thing" is a rousing time-traveling adventure), but several of the episodes go beyond the usual superhero wisecracks to mine rich, character-based humor in bizarre and extreme situations. In "Kid Stuff," Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman are transformed into eight-year-olds to defeat a sorceress' spoiled son, who has banished all adults to a shadow dimension. In "This Little Piggy," Circe turns Wonder Woman into a pig. Somehow, it all ends with Batman crooning "Am I Blue" in a nightclub. Purists need not worry. These deftly handled touches enhance, rather than cheapen or betray, these beloved characters. Several episodes even plumb our heroes' inter-League love lives, most memorably those of Wonder Woman and the brooding Batman, "a rich kid with lots of issues." The infusion of new heroes also allows for intriguing matchups such as by-the-book Capt. Atom and the more impulsive Supergirl in "Initiation." This four-disc set actually contains two complete seasons, which conclude the genetic engineering Project Cadmus story arc. The season two finale, "Epilogue," is a particularly dramatic episode set 65 years in the future, when Batman Beyond's Terry McGinnis learns some shocking revelations about his parentage from an aged Bruce Wayne. Brilliantly animated, smartly written, and superbly acted by a stellar voice cast, Justice League offers unlimited enjoyment even for non-geeks.

    A galaxy full of iconic and cult faves from the DC Comics universe.

    My other half was excited to get this at hand. He had waited forever to see all these amazing super heroes together and this show did not disappoint in the slightest. Plots that make Hollywood movies look like grade school plays and dialogue witty enough to keep "House" fans entertained. More than 50 favorite comic book superheroes combine forces to keep the world safe in this action-packed animated series. Using their special powers of flight, time travel, ultra human strength and more, the members of the Justice League battle notorious villains such as Lex Luthor and Cadmus. This UNLIMITED series carries on from the regular JL series. It's all around great. More characters, more action. It can spread itself a bit thin since it has so many different characters, but that's the way it would be. The original series had only a few characters, so you got a lot of character development. Here, it's a bit spread out, but by now, you already know the main players. The season two finale, "Epilogue," is a particularly dramatic episode. The two-parter "The Once and Future Thing," stood out to me as well as "Kid Stuff, and "This Little Piggy," when Circe turns Wonder Woman into a pig while seeing the lighter side of Batman towards the end in the nightclub. If you're a fan of the JLA or DC Universe, you owe it to yourself to check these out. Brilliantly animated, smartly written, and superbly acted by a stellar voice cast, Justice League offers unlimited enjoyment you'll not only want to view/borrow but buy as well. Great for kids and adults alike.
