I wonder if the explanation on Brainiacs appearance will get tied in with the Static Shock episode.
Hey, I post my episode ideas here hoping that Bruce Timm & Co. "steal" my ideas! (I'm still hoping for a two-parter where Hades & Ares team up and try to start World War III... )Archangel2385 said:They stole my idea. In a fanfic I had planned, I had Brainaic returning to Earth to get AMAZO's blueprints; after all, if there was ever an "idol" that Brainaic should have, it would be AMAZO. Oh well, I tip my hat to Bruce Timm. & Co., for you have executed a version of my story very well .
I don't think AMAZO can be built easily by regular humans. It was implied in "Tabula Rasa" I believe that Dr. Ivo had spent much of his professional life working on AMAZO. Now, an intergalactic threat like Brainiac, however... I can see Brainiac building an AMAZO in a few weeks.Human Shield said:So an Amazo bot takes weeks to build? So the Earth could crank out the most powerful weapon in the universe every few weeks. Earth could conquer every race in the universe, slap up the green lanterns and the New Gods. The Hawk people should have just asked for an Amazo bot and the war would be over. Amazo is the biggest loophole in the DCAU in my opinion, the one Amazo needs to be a huge fluke that can't be repeated.
I do find it ammusing that T.O. Morrow can make better artificial soldiers than the entire United States Government. You'd think with our hundreds of hightly paid scientists and engineers we'd be able to show up one single super villain.Dens Maris said:-- Red Tornado returning to beat three Wind Dragons in a contest of powers.

Good post! I see your point. It would have been nice to have those scenes with the League, but you can only get so much into a 22 min show. A scene like that would have added more to their characters, but then something that was in this episode would have to have been cut out and I certainly enjoyed it the way it was. However, perhaps if the whole of JLU could be released on a DVD set, and if it showed this 5 parter as a movie, they could make an extended edition and add more scenes like that. I'd certainly buy it! Hehe, that's wishful thinking though.Temple Fugate said:"Ta-da!" Okay, ignoring the bogus ending for now...
The episode was about as great as last week's. Superman made the right decision to turn the League in, unfortunately that angle didn't get any attention because we were too busy watching the Ultimen get the biggest beating we've seen since...well, not too long ago when Superman fought Captain Marvel. That massive battle was simply spectacular, and almost worth the buildup. Almost. What really paid off was the Supergirl vs Galatea fight, which ended in an eerie twist as Supergirl zapped and possibly killed Galatea (dead bodies can twitch, mind you). Either way you look at it, she's toast for a long time.
Batman shared another nice scene with Waller, which was a proper throwback to "Doomsday Sanction." Waller's discovery of Lex's deeds prompted a believable turn of face.
VERY good point.
HOWEVER. The ending. Okay, before I get to that, other things about this episode that might get ignored because everyone is so distracted by Brainthor/Luthiac. (I prefer Brainthor. It's cornier.) As I mentioned earlier, the League turning themselves into US custody was a strong plot point, and the scene where the general refuses to cuff the League was great. But after that...there was nothing. The fight scene at the 'Tower took too much away from this point. "Well, Temple Fugate, what do you suggest we have seen? The League sitting in the jail cell?" Yes! Perhaps they could have been told about the Watchtower, but Superman tells them all to stay calm and not try and break out of the prison to save their friends. I can definitely see Superman saying "No...they can handle it on their own." It could mirror Steel's admiration speech. Maybe Waller could have even shown up in person to get them out. Of course, we wouldn't be surprised to see them appear in Lexcorp. But then, how many surprises can one take before we just stop believing what we see?
Which brings me, at last, to the ending. Surprise after surprise after surprise. 1)Luthor: I'm building AMAZO LEX! 2)Waller says "I DON'T THINK SO!" 3)Oh, snap! She busted out the Big Seven! 4)Oh, super-snap! HE'S BRAINTHOR! All of these sudden occurences in such a short amount of time caused a little bit of resistance from me. I think the Brainthor thing could have been swallowed easier if it was the ONLY surprise in that scene. If the flow of the episode had been more "Okay, Waller got them out of jail. Oh boy, they're gonna get Lex! This is gonna be killer!" and built up more anticipation, perhaps the surprise wouldn't have seemed as out-of-left-field as it was.
But then again, I'm not qualified to be on the writing staff for a major animated series, so perhaps I'm just speaking out of my butt. Anyway, still a good episode. It's always good to see a Leaguer I've never heard of get some dialogue.

That was it for that scene, but I assume it was one of the many flying founding members of the JLU, probably Wonder Woman judging by the way the hand/arm looked. Remember how at the end they all flew in via the same window Batman was thrown out of?Squall said:Wow! An amazing episode! It was everything I was hoping it would be, and then some. The only question I have is, who saved Batman from falling out of LexCorp's headquarters skyscraper? My brother walked by the TV, so all I saw was a mysterious hand stopping Batman from falling. (?)
Yeah. I think all us guys noticed that, and were dismayed.Master Moron said:Supergirl's shirt sure is stretchy. You'd figure when her clone grapped her shirt that it would lift up some, but it must be made of some type of special material that adheres to her skin or something, cause man, that shirt stretched.
Well, it was expected. I thought the shirt was going to get lifted up, but it didn't. Maybe if this was made for Adult Swim or HBO....SirLemming said:Yeah. I think all us guys noticed that, and were dismayed.
