Storyline

Forces of evil, chaos, and destruction await. Not even protectors like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Hawkgirl or the Martian Manhunter may have a chance alone. But together as the Justice League, they are a metahuman force (and a hope) to be reckoned with. Written by RSchaff-2nd

Trivia

The character models for some of the characters in the test footage was quite different from the final product. The Superman design used was identical to the models used on Superman (1996). Green Lantern had the same hairstyle and costume as the final design, but still possesses the dark green mask from the Superman draft model. The one with the most significant changes to his design was J'onn J'onzz. In the test footage he appears blockier, with a squarer jaw, a Kirbyesque line detailing his right cheek, and black eyes with red pupils (similar to the Joker's redesign for The New Batman Adventures (1997)). In addition, J'onn's color palate utilizes paler greens, blues and reds, and possesses none of the shiny highlights that have become a trademark of the series. Featured briefly commanding a robot that resembles the Golem (from Batman Beyond: Golem (1999)), Similarly, Lex Luthor had a craggy, Kirby-like detailing on his face, and his design is an early take on the updated purple-and-green jumpsuit uniform, indicating that the creative team was already planning on utilizing the Silver Age "mad scientist" Luthor, rather than the "corrupt industrialist" Luthor, from Superman (1996). Solomon Grundy looked a bit younger that on the final product and Cheetah looked more like her comic counterpart featuring long black hair. See more »

User Reviews

The Justice League is back for a new millennium.
18 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

There hasn't been a show featuring these mighty heroes since 1985, but this show ain't no Super Friends. Like the Superman and Batman shows of the 1990s, Justice League has action, humor, creativity and terrific animation. Justice League acts more like the current comic book incarnation. The show stars the most powerful and well known characters from those comic books. Other familiar characters are bound to pop up from time to time. The characters have separate and distinct personalities, which can lead to some conflict and disagreement. That's good since it would be very boring if all the heroes agreed on everything and got along.

Congratulations to Bruce Timm and his team. This show is sure to be a winner.
