Crisis of Infinite Episodes - DC's World's Funnest #3

Oh great, another Aardman Batman short. This is the one where Robin farted on Batman and Joker rambled about his shoes. Lovely. The charm has definitely worn off and at this point, I feel that a clay Batman short is basically robbing us of something worthwhile.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Safety (Plugs)

Obviously this is too many plugs, but can it really cause a fire? Wouldn't it just throw the breaker? I also find it strange that both top and bottom adapters allow 4 plugs when the top is twice as large. Then again, I don't think either adapter could actually function. Wouldn't all the plugs block each other on the inside? Maybe that's what caused the fire.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Monster of Dr. Droid

Unfortunately, Dr. Droid never read Frankenstein or he would have known how the story would play out. For anyone who has read the classic novel, this was a textbook case of plagiarism complete with tragic ending... except for the very ending with a cute little mouse and laughing. I was saddened that the mad science was cut short. I was really looking forward to the brain swap between Wonder Woman and Droid's droid. Sadly this ended up being another fine, but awfully forgettable adventure.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Saftey (Burn Care)

Double safety this episode (which I think may be an animation error which should have shown "Health," but whatever), with a tie in to the Rima episode. After these segments I finally realize, fire can hurt me. To think, I had thought it was just a pretty decoration.

Onscreen History of Jean Grey (Phoenix)

The telepathic and telekinetic Marvel Girl Jean Grey made her debut in the pages of 1963's X-Men #1 as one of the original 5 X-Men, but she is possibly best known for becoming the villainous Dark Phoenix in the 1970s.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Fire

Enter... Rima? This Tarzan style heroine was the star of her own comic series during the mid-70's, Rima the Jungle Girl. She had been adapted from the character in 1904's Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest, but don't ask me to explain why. And please don't ask how she found her way into a guest superhero role on Super Friends. I wouldn't really put her on the same level as Green Lantern or Flash.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Craft (Yo-Yo)

Thanks for the really crappy toy Wonder Woman that you put together using a rock for a hammer. Should be hours of fun.
