I thought it was extemely disappointing.  Few JSA members, lame action, just disappointing.

I did like that they hinted that Lex was still alive.  I also enjoyed the foreshadowing to some possible cool story lines...but foreshadowing THAT MUCH does little for this episode.

Not as disappointing as the Doomsday finale last year, but not what I hoped for either.  C-, tops.

Samson, I don't think John's leather jacket was black.  It looked black in most of the scenes, but there were times when the light hit it just right, that it appeared to be a dark blue.  That would fit with his comic book counterpart's color scheme with the blue cape.

DAMMITTTTTT! I just wrote to everyone, and sent it, but it didn't go through. This is the third time thiis has happened to me in the last month. Anyone else experience this lately?

I've had that happen, Joe.  That's why I Ctrl, C the text (if my post is long) before pressing ADD.

JoeArtistWriter 2/7/2010 12:29:21 PM

yeah, I've done that in the past, but forgot this time. So annoying.

Suffice it to say guys, I responded to each of you, and either agreed or disagreed and validated my point. Sadly, I don't have the time to rewrite my comments, (getting ready to get my Super Bowl buzz on) but please just assume that everything I said was incredibly brilliant and incontrovertible and we'll all get along just fine.    ;)

@redhairs99

My bad. I wasn't clear enough in my writing. I didn't mean Manhunter's jacket was black. I liked the colors he was sporting. I was complaining about the movement that almost every hero has to wear black leather these days.

I was complaning about the actual "look" of the outfit. It just looked very cheap and almost hand or spray painted. Not the jacket, but the belts and the rest. Very dime store-ish.

@Joe

It happens to me, too. I've learned to write everything in a seperate document, then copy and paste. That way, if it doesn't go through, all I have to do is repost it.

I don't think the episode exactly lived up to the hype but what we got was pretty damn good. If nothing else we got a decent representation of an actual superhero team in a show, instead some made up one. I agree that tyey could have and should have shown more of the other JSA or more of the ones that were in the forefront like Dr.Fate and Sandman. Martian Manhunter's transformation was pretty cool as hell I mean it was perfect. The one thing that I thought was missing was the rest of the Jr JLA. They should have included  Impulse, AC, and at least Cyborg. We know the chick that plays Canary is off doing SG-U, but what about the rest.?

The scene when Fate saw Clark's future and the cape gave me goosebumps. He also mentioned  that Chloe would end up like him which leads me to believe she'l either go nuts or be killed. The Checkmate, Suicide Squad stuff was cool, although I think having Tess Mercer be an agent is kind of stupid even though I can see how that would explain certain things. The biggest reveal to me was that Lex is still alive. Like Clark doesn't have enough to deal with. Zod, Checkmate, Tes, and now Lex. I'd love to see Rosenbaum make a cameo at some point.

Hawkman's voice was kind of annoying and not needed. I also think that they could have used another villain.

I thought thwe episode was awesome.  Yeah, Sandman could have put up more of a fight and Dr. Fate may not have died but what can you do? Jay will never appear as we already have Impulse and I doubt we'll see Alan anytime soon given the GL movie coming out.  Wildcat has potential though he's always someone's mentor, Black Canary (not likely here) or Batman.  (Also not likely since the resident Bats, GA, already had a mentor episode... ) 

Hawkman's Batman voice may not have been needed but I found it very cool as his adversarial relationship with Ollie.  I loved the little touches such as the obvious similarity of MM's clothes to his costume, his line about liking cookies and him going intangible. I also Carter making reference to Courtney's step-father.

It only makes sense they bring in Suicide Squad since that was basically what Tess's team (Plastique, Parasite, and even Shade... (At least I still contend that's who that was)) was last season...

My cousin commented how much Stargirl looked like Captain America. "That the way she looks!" I tell him...
