With Young Justice about to be canceled in most likely less than a month, there's really no good comic book series left. All we can do is discuss another once great series.

The second half of JL and the first half of JLU were incredible. I hated the Legion of Doom stuff.

So did I. The show reached its peak with the Cadmus Storyline.

I think they may've overused Luthor too much.

Only gripe about the show as that it should've been TV-14, but that wasnt going to happen for obvious reasons.

They kinda did overuse Luthor, but they at least made him entertaining. The rating was fine.

The rating was fine but they could've gone farther if the rating was put up a notch. Like an episode where the civilians don't like GL because its John Stewart.

Yeah Luthor was entertaining. Just because he was a villain that saw the deeper meaning. He wanted knowledge for gods sake, not money or power, knowledge.

I think cartoons in general reached their peak with that season. It was brilliant. I had a problem with they did Cheetah. She was pathetic.

This is a legitimate gripe of the show. I grew up on it and so when there was a recent thread here on CV about Cheetah (when she appeared in the new52 JL), I thought "huh? Cheetah sucks, she shouldn't be this strong/fast". It didn't help - my mind then, at least - that she was an "animal person" (and typically animal-mutant type people are super strong/fast/durable, but only somewhat, not on WW type levels). I wonder whose choice it was to reduce Cheetah in the DCAU to a street-level brawler....

The same kind of thing happened with me. I watched the show before I started reading Wonder Woman. After a couple issues with her in them I was like holy crap did they mess her up. They could have found a way to make her formidable while toning her bloody origins down a bit.

DCU did good with Aquaman. The look, the hook. Aquaman could've been a great anti-hero if they wanted to.

I could be wrong, but I'm fairly sure he had that look in the JLA title, which debuted in 97 (before JL/JLU). But I would agree, I liked that look. Until John's revamp of Aquaman in the new52, that was my preferred Aquaman look/characterization.

JLU season 2 was supposed to be the last season. Hence, that is why the final scene in "Epilogue" is nearly the same exact scene as the opening of the first episode of Batman TAS....bookends. The show was given another season and Bruce Timm and co. decided to do a love letter to Superfriends.

JLU was awesome cause it focused on more then just 1 character, or the original 7. It focused on guys like Question, Green Arrow, Huntress, Vigilante, etc etc and so on and so forth. The show really didn't alinate any character really. Am curious though, if they would do a sort of Justice League: Beyond show with Terry(who would be all grown up) and the future Justice League I think that would be pretty neat.

Yea, he "evolved" so far that he became a god-like being (becoming "above" the fighting between the heroes & villains). He realized Luthor was using him and left to explore space (coming back a golden god - almost quite literally).

One of my biggest complaints about the first season was how, at every chance, Superman would get his ass kicked. Of course, in the episode where Brainiac and Darkseid teamed up, all was redeemed, but those episodes prior were painful.

My buddy & I used to joke that all you needed to stop the (DCAU) JL was a tazer, since it seemed every damned electrified pole or floor would bring down every member (especially Jonn. Guess they had to neutralize him every battle so the JL side wouldn't be too over-powered).

Not every episode was a complete winner (wasn't too crazy about Star Crossed, specifically), but the whole Justice Lords to Cadmus thing is one of my favorite JL storylines (in any medium). The finale of the whole series was awesome, and the "World of Cardboard" speech never gets old.

The first half of JL was very hit or miss with me. Because I'm such a Superman fanboy, I cringed whenever he'd get his ass kicked by something embarrassing (which happened almost every time he was onscreen). They fixed that in the second half in the episode where Darkseid makes his comeback, but those were some painful times prior.

Agreed. Superman was treated poorly - but, then, that goes back to Superman TAS, too.

To be fair, the whole DCAU started (and ended) with Batman, so I guess I can't be too upset about hyping him up. Epilogue is probably my favorite episode of the entire DCAU, and features one of the best Batman moments of all time (in my opinion, anyway).

Batman: "It's over, no one could have survived that.''

Wild Cards

Twilight

A Knight of Shadows

The Brave and the Bold

Comfort and Joy (I have a soft spot for this episode)

I did not include Epilogue or the others, because I'm just talking about the original JL. Using both and limiting it to only 10 would be impossible.

Fun fact: the original JL series had 52 episodes.

Hands-down, the best superhero animated series ever, IMO.

Definitely had some great episodes, as well as utilizing many lesser-known characters (Question, Dr. Destiny, Booster Gold). I actually quite liked the Legion storyline more than the Cadmus one, though. While the Cadmus one was undeniably more weighty and really made the stakes high up - the Legion arc was just more fun. It didn't have such an interconnected story, but the third season had so many great episodes and moments (The Flash brain switch, Patriot Act, the two-part finale).

As for Superman getting his butt handed to him in every episode, I could rationalize that by thinking that this was the 'DCAU Superman'. I didn't really like their portrayal of Supes, and it wasn't just the strength level - it was also his personality. He came across as way more aggressive and emotional than the Superman I know (see: Clash, Twilight of the Gods).
