"Epilogue" is neat. I like how they ended with a sequence that mirrored the opening one to the first BTAS episode "On Leather Wings" because they thought that was going to be it for the Timmverse. But then we got that cool Legion of Doom season of JL.

Also you fucking fucks, Slim said it just a few posts before me.

It says a lot for how great JLU was, that one of my absolute favourite episodes is one centered around Vigilante, Shining Knight, Stargirl and fucking S.T.R.I.P.E.

 

Also, Jeffery Combs' Question is the best take on that character in history:

 

"The plastic tips at the end of shoelaces are called aglets! Their true purpose is sinister..."

That episode shows how much the creative team loved the DCU; its a Seven Soldiers of Victory homage episode.

The Chronos episode is great as well. Loved McNichols as Chronos

 

And agree on Comb's Question. "Please. I go through everyone's trash".

The moment when the big seven are in a meeting and Batman says of Question "I admit he's wound up a bit too tightly" sealed how great the character was for me. I mean, Batman saying that of someone? Wow.

Also loved how they managed to deal with rights and limitation issues, like making Devil Ray up because Black Manta was off limits.

My favorite JLU homage is that they grouped some radom characters as a take off of Marvel's original Defenders: Dr. Fate (Strange); Aquaman (Namor); Amazo (Surfer); Grundy (Hulk); and Hawkgirl (Nighthawk).
Took me the longest time to tumble to what they were doing there.

In all honesty the last time I saw it I was probably 10 or 11. And I that was the only time other than the theatre.

I will give it another go after a few beers.

It's cheesy fun. Like a Cannon studios Conan meets Star Wars meets Back to the Future.

But Frank Langella is, I'm convinced, in a whole other movie entirely. EVERYTHING about Skeletor rocks. He's the reason the film has as much lasting value for me. His make-up and costuming are just wonderful.

He's even said that his two favorite performances of his career are Nixon in Frost/Nixon and Skeletor. And I find the ending genuinely kinda touching in that "wears it's heart on it's sleeve" 80s kinda way..
