the JSA animated!
Per Degaton is a lot more menacing in this episode than I've ever seen him in the comics, but that's only been a few appearances that I've read. of course by now he's had 2942 retcons and back stories and such.
anyway, there's some tension between the old guard and the new heroes, as Batman and Black Canary think each other got preferential treatment from the JSA. it's a nice sampling of the heroes, though I missed Johnny Thunder. maybe next season!
I can't wait to see the Metal Men, and it looks like we get the Doom Patrol (to wash the taste of the Teen Titans cartoon version away) and possibly the Challengers of the Unknown, as Starro seems to be making an appearance in several of the opening sequences.
and they will use Captain Marvel but not Superman? weird. we do see Superman and Wonder Woman in a cameo in the sidekicks episode. what a great show!
