JLA: The Savage Time (24, 25, 26)
as we see here, he's still Batman because the new regime broke into his house and killed his parents. must have been a cowardly, superstitious lot as well to inspire the costume. there's a good bit in here when Batman sends the rest back in time to WWII to see how the Axis powers won.
Blackhawks. which is a really cool idea and I'm glad they used these Quality heroes. only four of the 'Hawks get featured, but they had like 12 or so in the comics. I think I've only ever read one of their stories, and for the life of me I can only remember "Chop Chop" being a character. how sad for me!
Easy Company, which I've probably read some stories of, but since war comics aren't my thing, I can't remember any of them at all. I know the character. remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger wanted to play Sgt Rock (and Doc Savage) in various movie projects? wish I didn't!
Vandal Savage. of course, he's not referred by this moniker in the episode, but for us long time comic readers we knew who he was right away. though how his past self knew how to use the computer from his future self I'll never figure out either. damn time travel stories!
Steve Trevor, (voiced by Patrick Duffy) which is nice to finally see. here's their second kiss. I gotta say hearing him call her "Angel" was really cool, since that's what he called her in her first comic book appearance. yeah, I don't know war comics, but superhero stuff, I'm pretty good on that.
this was a good three parter to end the first season. it had a larger portion of good episodes to merely entertaining ones, and this one is one of the best stories. next season will be even more fun to watch and review!
