  1. Mike, About Luthor using Flash's power's better than Wally, I would put out a couple points. First, when we're talking speed, it's very much physics. Luthor would be able to intuit a lot of this easily given his intellect. Also, given a) his mindset and b) that Flash robbed him of ascension to godhood, it makes sense that he's been taking Flash more seriously than me probably did early in the League's history and building up a dossier of what he can do. As to the flying thing, to be honest, i think you're giving Luthor too much credit and selling Wally short. Wally was clearly a c
  2. James made a comment about what Carter Hall claimed having been proven true. The facts of the Thanagarians in Egypt wasn't really contested. Were you claiming that his claims of reincarnation were proven true? I never really saw that as established. I thought they were always leaving it up in the air whether he and Shayera were really reincarnated, or whether her explanation of the Absorbacron was the correct one. Mike, about Batman's costume change at the end of "Shadow Of The Hawk" - Batman having a costume in the Javelin could be supported by going back to "The Terror Beyond". At o
  3. After all, the Greeks practiced throwing javelins extensively in military training, so she did play to her strengths. Chris
  4. At the beginning of "A Better World, Part 1", the Justice Lords are watching the League fight Luthor on a monitor in the Batcave. One of them specifically commented that they had never had that fight, making it explicit that the Lords were a parallel universe, not a future timeline. Question may either have not known this or been concerned that things would continue to follow in this universe as in that one, hence the comment about Luthor is Luthor, regardless of what universe he calls home. As to the video, remember that Lords Batman decided to help the League after realizing that Thomas
  5. I think the Watchtower would be at its weakest if, of the main members, it had Batman and Hawkgirl, and of the lesser members it had the majority of the heroes spotlighted in the episode and/or Hawk and Dove. Even then, it would suck to be on the receiving end of Hawkgirl's mace and Batman and the other non-superpowered superheroes would still put a good fight. Of course, Batman may have figured out what was going on faster - he is Batman after all. Who knows - they may have gotten the projected roster for the next month and this was the most lightly populated period for the foreseeable fu
  6. I think it's up in the air whether the memory was created at the end of the episode, or whether that was meant to be an alternate timeline. From YoungBruce's perspective, however, since he never saw Terry's face or heard his name, and since the older version of himself did not remember traveling in the future, that means that what he saw was at best a possible future, and probably wouldn't dispose him any more kindly to this punk showing up and stealing the Batsuit. If anything, it might make him discourage him more strongly - Batman probably saw Terry drawn and quartered, even if the viewer
  7. And now we come to the big 10... It will be interesting to see what the scores in the next 2 episodes of WFP are like compared to prior WFP episodes. The next 10 episodes are arguably the strongest run of episodes in the DCAU. Don't get me wrong, I love some of the 3rd season, Flash-centric episodes, but there's just not the sense of high drama in the last season as there is here. The biggest problem is the finale. Superman vs. Darkseid - and every other metahuman on the planet faces off against faceless mooks. No other named (or even speaking) antagonists appear in that last episo
  8. The mind boggles at the bizarre possibilities THAT brings up...although there's probably stranger things in a fanfic somewhere. Chris
  9. Last batch of notes - Granted, by that point, Chronos no longer cared about messing with the timestream, but he actually killed Chuckie without altering time. The Chicxulub crater in the Yucutan was caused by an impact estimated to be about 100,000,000 megatons of TNT (or 2 million times the power of the biggest nuclear bomb ever made). Safe to say that Chuckie was vaporized, so we don't have to worry about Vandal Savage finding his old light saber 30,000 years ago or anything. Jeremy Piven also voiced Elongated Man in "Greatest Story Never Told". I like the characterization of Wal
  10. Jonathan Joss. He took over as John Redcorn in Season 2. (Per TV.com - I don't think I've every watched more than snatches of King of the Hill). Chris
  11. Then "Brave & The Bold" has Alan Tudyk (Wash) as Barry Allen; "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse" has Summer "River" Glau as Supergirl; everyone but Book, Kaylee, and Simon has been involved in DC properties. Chris
  12. I love the line about "Your favorite movie is Old Yeller. You know exactly what he means." It does a lot in a few seconds. It calls back to the relationship between John & Shayera, because she couches things in terms of his favorite movie. It also calls back to that bit in "Hearts & Minds" when Flash and Kilowog are searching John's apartment for his battery. Finally, it lets them tell us that they are going to put Grundy down...well, like a rabid dog, clearly but without using words like kill or die that would trigger the censors. Also, just a quick bit of non-verbal character
  13. So watching Dark Heart, I have to say, I wasn't that bothered by the fact that Atom defeated the master chip with violence instead of reprogramming. First, they led up to this when he was about to fix the nanochip in his lab, and ended up just punching it. Second, his core point still held true - this had to be dealt with on a microscopic, not macroscopic, level. As to the issue of one of the other units starting to crank out nanospiders, I assumed it was like a bee hive. Maybe, given time, one of the others will develop "queen" status - immediately upon destruction of the master unit, how
  14. Just an addendum to the bit about Giganta and Bizarro - in addition to bonding, that scene was probably there for the Superfriends homage. Samurai, Black Lightning, and the Wonder Twins never had any arch-nemeses, but Apache Chief and Giganta (for obvious reasons) were usually set up as counterparts, so that bit was a callback to their pairing. Also, about Bizarro - he not only got off Bizarro World (which was not, unfortunately, square), but went from broken speech to reversed meanings. He also seems to have a line across his forehead. I remember someone suggesting that he was brought b
  15. Mordru (the villain in the backstory in Greatest Story Never Told) was a Legion villain. He was also one of the villains in the 1978 Legends Of The Superheroes live action special. He rode a jet-ski to the final battle. I kid you not. I actually thought the battle took place in Metropolis - when Booster sees the lab and flies to it, it kind of looked like the STAR in Metropolis. Without being able to point to anything and say "There. That's why." Robert Picardo did a great job of giving AMAZO an almost child-like quality vocally. The Atom cooling things down was great, and in char
