For your tenth visit to the Non-Stop Comic Shop, the boys balance the scales with a comparative look at how the big and small screens both handled the coming together of the Justice League. First up, on the “Secret Origins” episode of the Justice League animated TV show, a foolish attempt to redo the plot of Superman IV: the Quest for Peace invites a highly derivative alien invasion. Can Batman, Superman, the guy WAY more powerful than Superman, and four other guys who just showed up out of nowhere (two of whom are basically Klingons) save the series until it gets to it’s far better second season? Then, in the theatrical Snyder-Whedon joint, cinema’s blandest villain is leading a highly derivative alien invasion. Can Batman, Wonder Woman, plastic upper lipped-Superman, and three other guys who just showed up out of nowhere (who weirdly have colorful costumes, senses of humor, and a desire to prevent civilian casualties) save the DCEU until it gets a second good movie?
