Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Stickmen of Stygia

Aqualad and Mera planned a hilarious practical joke pretending the ocean was being invaded (because that NEVER happens). Ha Ha, good one Laddie.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The War of the Quatix and the Bimphars

I know I have been ranting about how strange it is that Atlanteans can't breathe underwater, but I just realized something else pretty ludicrous. If Aquaman dies if he is out of the water for an hour, does that mean he can't even spend time in Atlantis? I mean, a quick shopping trip maybe, but for dinner, forget it. Or is it OK as long as he has a glass of water with his food? So strange. Then what is Aquaman anyways? Neither man nor Atlantean, he is an outcast with only his companion Aqualad who strangely shares that exact same genetic deficiencies.

The Justice League: A Super Friendly Tour - JSA Edition

The Justice Society of America, precursor to the Justice League, was the first comic book superhero team, first appearing in 1940's All Star Comics #3. As the years went by, DC would introduce the concept of alternate Earths with the JSA belonging to Earth 2 while the JLA was formed on Earth 1. The teams would join forces regularly during epic "Crisis" crossover events. In spite of being first, the JSA has been less favored by onscreen media, owing in part the team's membership of lesser known heroes compared to those on the Justice League.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Programmed for Destruction

Could it be, The Brain is back once again? If I am counting correctly, this is El Cerebro's 4th appearance fighting Aquaman. After 4 defeats, he may want to consider changing his name especially after how stupidly he acted this time. The Brain enlisted a computer's help, by the looks of it, the same computer that calculated the location of the golden-ticket bearing Wonka bars. This computer gave The Brain the idea to make Aquaman super buoyant. While mining gems to make the buoyancy ray, The Brain managed to trap Aquaman, Lad, and even Tusky in a water thickening beam, but since that wasn't the way the computer had suggested to defeat Aquaman, The Brain just left the heroes there to escape... DUH!

Onscreen History of Cheetah

Superman has Lex Luthor and Batman has the Joker. Perhaps Wonder Woman's most recognizable villain is Cheetah. Cheetah first appeared in 1943 within the pages of Wonder Woman #6. And although a cheetah cannot change her spots, there have been a number of changes to the design of the ferocious feline felon over the years. Cheetah is slated to next appear as a member of the notorious Legion of Doom in the upcoming animated film, Justice League: Doom. Over the next few weeks we will examine the rest of that films villainous line-up.
