The Justice League, adapted from the DC Comics
adventures, follows a group of superheroes based on a space
station as they fight against evil from the Earth and beyond.
Here we have three episodes from the Unlimited series...
In Initiation, Green Arrow is invited to join the Justice
League but gracefully refuses. The Green Lantern, Supergirl
and Captain Atom (please!) agree to drop him off after they
have helped with a reported nuclear accident. They are turned
away by the military, but Green Arrow discovers there is a
nuclear-powered robot on the rampage and only he can get close
enough to pierce its weakness.
Hawk and Dove, two sets of warring factions in a country
are further divided when one side is given an unstoppable
robot by a mysterious shapeshifting character. Recognising
a symbol on the robot's armour, Wonder Woman visits the individual
who created her own suit. He tells her he made the robot for
Aries, and that he leaves a small weakness in each of his
creations. Justice League members Hawk and Dove try to convince
the warring leaders to talk peace, but Aries has taken over
one of their identities. It takes Dove to realise the robot
is fuelled by hatred and prejudice.
Kid Stuff, Morgane LeFay shows her young son Mordred
the Amulet of First Power, with which he will one day claim
his kingdom. But the impatient youth snatches the amulet and
uses it to banish all adults. Consequently, Batman, Wonder
Woman and countless others find themselves deposited in a
shadow realm. The only way to get back is to allow Morgane
to turn them into children.
sorry to say that, whilst the animation remains good, this
new Unlimited version of Justice League has gone right down
hill. When I reviewed some of the original Justice League
show it concentrated on the main characters of Superman, Batman,
Wonder Woman, Flash and the Green Lantern. Now we not only
have a cast of thousands (superhero overkill), but the entire
format seems to be aimed at young kids who they would have
you believe care nothing about characterisation or good storytelling,
only whizzes and bangs. Furthermore, is three episodes amounting
to seventy minutes good value for money? Probably not.
