Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Super Best Friends Forever: Name Game

SBFF churned out yet another cute short. I believe this was the first one produced, which makes sense as it gives an origin of the team name - which was driven by the spunky Batgirl. I also liked seeing the ultra-feline interpretation of Cheetah. The Batgirl focused short is still my favorite, but there was plenty to like here as well.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Pied Piper From Space

After Sinbad the space pirate, now its time for the pied piper from space. Yeah, I get it. Space was big, but what's next? Snow White and the 7 astronauts from space? For some reason, Senor Piper came by way of a flying Simon game... which I guess at least is better than a space sail boat.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Time Trap

For the 300th episode we lucked out with a real treat. The Legion lured heroes into the past and abandoned them there. Aquaman and Apache Chief were stranded in prehistoric times, Green Lantern and Samurai in Camelot, and the Dynamic Duo in ancient Rome.

Super History of Superman: Atom Man vs. Superman (1950)

 Superman returned in 1950 in a follow-up 15 part serial where he faced off against Atom Man who was none other than (spoiler alert) Lex Luthor.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Ballad of Zan and Jayna

This little gem of a tune is found on the DVD. I sort of assume its a joke, but who knows. Maybe there really is a band P.T. Zarnum & the Trouble Alerts.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Sinbad and the Space Pirates

No, its not Treasure Planet, though that might have been better. I mean, who doesn't like pirates, but just like in Treasure Planet, the idea of flying, space worthy, sailboats is pretty stupid.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The World's Deadliest Game

The Legion of Doom has no excuse for failure. Not only does Brainiac have a ray that can cloak the entire planet, but Toyman has his own toy planet in the center of a black hole complete with giant pinball machine and dollhouse.
