Like something out of Jack and the Beanstalk, Farmer John nearly got killed by a fast growing plant. Then more plants attacked a rocket and then... the Capitol. Next thing you know, its a global invasion of seeds!

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Superman Meets Brainiac

I know I already pointed it out after watching The Return of Brainiac, but this episode was clearly added out of order since Superman had already met Brainy. So, I guess Superman joined the circus. In an homage to the Fleischer short Terror on the Midway, Superman was going to wrestle Mr and Mrs Gigantic gorillas. Turns out Brainiac, who I swear Lois said didn't look like a "circus freak," was shrinking and stealing pairs of animals Noah style (except for the shrinking part). He also abducted Supes and Lois.

Onscreen History of The Flash (and Other DC Speedsters)

In the past couple of years, the Scarlet Speedster has not slowed down one bit appearing onscreen in numerous places and deserving an updated entry. I thought I would take this update as an opportunity to provide a couple of shout outs to some of DC's other lesser known non-Flash speedster heroes as well. Oh and by the way, Barry Allen has reclaimed his status as DC's premier Flash and Wally West has pretty much disappeared in the new post-Flashpoint DC universe continuity.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Imp-Practical Joker

Uh-oh its Mr. Mxyzptlk making a carnival go crazy and putting Superman's mind to work.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Two Faces of Superman

Hey, why is Superman stealing? Wait a second, didn't I see this exact episode in the Famous Studio Showdown short? But how is an imposter flying. Ahhhhh! Its a Toyman toy, a "robot replica." Well played.
