Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Bat Man of Shanghai: Bane

The Cat Woman short was such an experience that my expectations for this second act were sky high. And guess what? I was equally captivated. I enjoyed this short from the start, but when Bane turned into a rolling ball, this episode earned my audible acclaim. Cat Woman may remain a tad higher on my list of favorites, but this is darned close.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Aquaman & Friends Action Hour

Perhaps a victim of his own success, Aquaman went from headlining his own show in the 1960's to being lampooned alongside the Wonder Twins as the laughing stocks among the superheroes. I think that writers struggled with making Aquaman heroic as a member of the dry land dwelling Super Friends. After years of seeming useless, Aquaman became the butt of the joke and the topic of countless lazy fish puns. The culmination of mockery for the washed up King of Atlantis was in the form of Cartoon Network Latin America's 7 episode run of The Aquaman & Friends Action Hour in 2003.
