So I take it the comics never revealed his origin? Sorry if this is a silly question, I've never really followed DC comics that closely. :sad:
I believe Doomsday was created on Krypton in the comics.

And the government conspiracy is happening all because of the Justice Lords. Terrific.

Wow. The main 7 are not really fond of The Question. But hopefully we have a Question episode that focuses on his investigation.

Good to see Flash again even though he is not the focus of this episode.

Heh, I seem to remember a thread on this board about there the werewolf episode of Batman, and most people didn't like it. I guess they've gotten their reward tonight.

Continuity references

Can anyone give me a full list of all the Timm universe continuity references there were??

I don't remember who Dr. Milo is.

Who was the lady with the purple hair who talked about the armor?

Were there any other dialogue references besides "Dr. Langstrom's research"? I think i missed them.

I love all this continuity stuff, but i can't remember a lot of stuff they're talking about.

Thanks in advance.

It's not that they don't like him, they just don't like listening to his conspiracy theories about why the mail is delivered at 12:30PM instead of 12:20PM.

Milo was in two B:TAS episodes: "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Moon of the Wolf." (coincidentally on the Volume 2 Boxset).

I believe Dr. Strange "The Strange Secret of Bruce Wayne" (also from B:TAS Vol. 2) was also in the roundtable.

I like this episode, even with its talkiness, but I'm really, really, REALLY disappointed by the underwhelming animation. For a story this big, you'd think they would put the MAN, Joaquam, on it. And get the AAA boarders on this puppy. But they didn't. God, that Doomsday fight could have been legendary. Instead it's just mediocre, because it ends up being staged, posed, and animated as lame as any regular Justice League episode, complete with unnecessary white flashes and uninteresting cinematography. Is there only one director in the entire show that cares about the art?! After flaunting how well you can choreograph fights with the season 2 premiere, why take so many steps back? I just don't understand it.

Some of the emotions were well done, especially on Waller, but Wonder Woman looked like a robot. Whether happy, upset, angry, she had the same blank look on her face... the same with Martian Manhunter. I don't know what that's about.

Aside from the animation, the action was very tense and well thought out. The story had a good structure to it. At this point in time I'm giving the episode a B, baring the ending. I'll change this post if the ending is great or terrible.

EDIT: Already I feel I have to change this grade to a B- because the poses of Superman punching Doomsday right before throwing him into the volcano were literally taken from For the Man Who Has Everything. Ugh.

EDIT EDIT: You know what, change it back to a B. I really liked Bruce's dialogue with Superman. They always have the best conflicts.

Next episode looks like a Joaquam episode. Too bad it won't be a while until it airs. :/

does b.t. have a thing for really really ugly CG? :sweat: just wondering......

despite all of Batmans actions in this episode my eyes were on Superman hoping and praying he didn't beat Doomsday the way Lords Superman did... and OH MY GOSH HE TRIED TO NOW I AM SCARED :( :( :( I so did not like the JL's interogation of Doomsday either :( I don't know what to think

Yea, you gotta wonder. I mean, JL has a relatively huge budget, yet friggin D.I.C.E. has better CG...

Anyway, it seems like Hades is coming back soon. Yay!

I know that. Their not-so positive reaction of him made it seem that way though.

Other than that, it was a good episode that progressed the hidden storyline. Then we get previews of "Double Date" and all the others, further increasing my impatience for the next few episodes, which is further magnified at CN's way of scheduling them, since next week is an old one.

Ah, it's all coming to the head. Well, now that they've gotten all that out of the way, I guess we can get to the real surprises.
