Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Secret Origins of the Super Friends

One of the all time greats. Not only did this tale tell the origins of three heroes, but it did so in a very creative way by having the villains also steal the origins of Green Lantern and Wonder Woman. Can someone say Green Luthor.

It would have been amazing if the Legion had messed with Batman's origin by saving his parents lives, but that would have been a little heavy for this series. As it was, Wonder Woman's tale was told quite efficiently from the molding out of clay to the Bullets and Bracelets tournament of Amazons. GL and Supes also got plenty of details in their brief origins including mentions of Ferris Air and Abin Sur for Hal and Krypton, Jor-El, and Lara for Kal. This is a must watch episode.
