"If You're Gonna Do It, Do It Right (Do It With Me)" Dept.:

Y'all have Matty Mozgiel to thank for this one too. The temptation to snarkily point out that DC Comics characters are best handled when they're taken away from the people who produce the comics and given to the people who loved the comics and now work in television animation notwithstanding, this is really VERY good and certainly warms the cockles of my jumped-ship-and-ran-screaming-after-four-years -of-devotion-to-be a-Marvel-Comics-fanboy-in-1977 after-I-read-THE-WORST-DC-COMIC-EVER* heart. The show makes a nice balance between "classic" (tho later on in the run, because these things take time to perfect) JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED design and character depiction, with the energy and overall sense of fun that TEEN TITANS GO! has. Superboy, Lightning Lad, Phantom Lass, and Bouncing Boy look great. Believe me, it hasn't gone unnoticed that the HQ works in both the MegaloMall design by Dave Cockrum as well as the original inverted spaceship, and I'm particularly taken with the redesigns for Triplicate Girl, Brainiac Five and Saturn Girl. If the comics were anywhere near this good, they wouldn't have to try to punch the heads off of third-stringers and eliminate any sense of humor whatsoever they've had about their books to mistakenly believe that's what it takes to be taken seriously get people's attention at all over at the Delerious Competition.

I *loved* the Legion when I was a youngster (that being said, I also loved the Thought Beast of the Scarlet Jungle of Krypton - long gone now).

Part One - You have no idea how happy I was to see the Time Bubble
and the opening sequence with it's instrumental theme is spot-on.

Part Two - "I'm going to the future, Ma - I'll be back in a few minutes..." "Take a sweater!"

Part Three - I hope you folks spotted Booster Gold in this bit.

Part Four - Very nice nod to the Fleisher Superman as Superboy
punches back the Emerald Emperess's Eye's green beam of light

Pretty cool, all in all.

*soon to be scanned and posted for your own "appreciation" right here abouts - I swear to God, I have never read a worse Batman or Superman story than the WORLD'S "FINEST" that I'll share the pain with. This thing almost made me drop comics completely, let alone DC books...
