Juxtaposed against Young Justice still traumatized from the events of their virtual reality training and undergoing therapy sessions with Counselor Troi, I mean Black Canary (what qualifies her for this? Doesn't Dinah Lance run a flower shop in real life), the real fun is Superboy, Wolf and the New Geneisphere teaming up with The Forever People!
I like how the Infinity Man was portrayed as a classic anime giant robot and how the New Geneisphere docking into its head with Superboy controlling it made it like Mazinger Z or The Great Mazinger or Mobile Suit Gundam.
They also downplayed the goofy (and in one case, racist) flower child names of some of The Forever People so Beautiful Dreamer just introduced herself as "Dreamer", Vykin The Black didn't call himself "The Black", and Big Bear was just "Bear" (after trying to name himself "Wolf").
Plus we got the formal introduction in Young Justice of Intergang, New Genesis and Apokalips (but Darkseid isn't mentioned by name), DeSaad designed like a gruesome melting candle, and Mother Box and Father Box. The New Genisphere can transform and was rechristened the Super Cycle to be ridden by Superboy.
I did enjoy the ramifications of the virtual reality fail from last week. J'Jon calling Batman out on trauma was amazing. Anything to do with the New Gods is always a win for unless its Smallville. Robin saying he doesn't want to be Batman when he grows up is a nice hint at Nightwing. A really good episode that sets everything up even though we have seen this all before the Superman animated series.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.
Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
It feels like it's been forever since this show's been on my TV. I thought I was getting spoiled by the awesome storytelling of Young Justice, but then Avengers shows up and offers up an equally compelling story of their own.
