  • Earth's seven greatest heroes unite against the threat of an alien invasion and decide to remain together to defend Earth against attacking aliens, sorcerers, super-villains, and any other threat that might arise. Among their number are the Martian Manhunter, last survivor of Mars; Superman, the super-powered last survivor of the planet Krypton; Batman, the Dark Knight Detective; Green Lantern, wielder of an alien Power Ring; The Flash, the Fastest Man Alive; Hawkgirl, Winged Wonder and policewoman from the planet Thanagar, and Wonder Woman, Princess of the Amazons. Starting with the third season, the show was retitled "Justice League Unlimited" and now the core members, under the guidance of the Martian Manhunter, command teams of specialist heroes brought together to deal with specific crises they are best suited to handling.moreless

  • Quotes (962)

    • Hawkgirl: Remember your promise about staying in the corner. Gear: But ... ? Hawkgirl: In. The. Corner.

    • Batman: (as Green Lantern illuminates the place) Notice anything? Static: You don't look good in green?

    • J'onn: We haven't heard from (Flash) all day. Which is unusual. Even factoring in his usual irresponsibility.

    • Flash: This is your headquarters? What happened - you couldn't find an abandoned treehouse?

    • Static: If you want to catch up on your sleep, doze through first-period history like the rest of us.

    • Brainiac: You are only delaying the inevitable. Static: He's saying that like it's a bad thing.

    • Batman: Static – Gear – what's your situation? Static: (in a robot's clutches) Let's just say there's room for improvement.

    • Static: Whoa. That's a big robot. Like a Shaq-size robot.

    • This episode was nominated for a Annie Award for Outstanding Directing in an Animated Television Production.

    • Character bios: Brainiac

    • Corey Burton reprises his role as Brainiac from the Superman and Batman Animated Series.

    • During Static's battle with the mind-controlled Batman, an updated Static-style version of the original Batman: The Animated Series theme plays.

    • Superman and Wonder Woman don't appear in this episode either.

    • Phil LaMarr (Green Lantern), one of the busiest men in animation today, also does the voice of Static (as well as Samurai Jack and many others).

    • Jason Marsden (Gear) also does the semi-recurring voice of Snapper Carr.

    • Superman and Wonder Woman do not appear in this episode.

    Trivia (464)

    • Taken from the Static Shock TV Tome site: As Martian Manhunter is about to phase into the Watchtower from space, he's wearing a spacesuit. Yet when he phases himself inside, the spacesuit is gone.

    • How does Hawkgirl fly in space? She doesn't have a rocket pack, there's no wind resistance for her wings, and since her wings are natural they wouldn't work in space where there's no gravity such as she (presumably) uses to fly against Earth's localized gravity, or air to push against.

    • We later find out the invaders are vulnerable to sunlight ... so how did the alien duplicating Carter get by for two years?

    • Why do only four heroes show up to help Superman, J'onn, and Batman? Not only are perviously established heroes from previous WB series such as Supergirl absent (and she'll feature significantly in Season 3), but all of the heroes we'll see in Season 3 are absent too. Earth's being invaded - couldn't they be bothered?

    • Why is Green Lantern unable to use his ring simply because it is imbedded in the alien entrapment substance?

    • Why do the aliens imbed Hawkgirl in the entrapment substance with her electro-mace in her hand?

    • This version of Superman doesn't seem to have a code against killing: he deliberately opens up a section of wall and lets some of the aliens fry in the sunlight.

    • When the alien flagship escapes and the League is standing on the Daily Planet, you can see that Hawkgirl isn't wearing pants but just her red shorts (i.e., her legs are bare).

    Allusions (300)

    • Brainiac: All of this base will soon belong to me
      A well-known game message from "Zero Wing," which in turn is referenced in the popular multiplayer game Team Fortress is "all your base are belong to us," meaning you've lost your fortress. Moreover, the game message is delivered by a very electronic voice. The use of "all" "base" and "belong" strongly suggest this reference.

    • Static: Hey - the Lord of the Ring!
      A reference to the Tolkien trilogy and the recent movie adaptations.

    • Alien Invasion Plot All three parts of Secret Origins bears a partial resemblence to the undercover invasion of Earth by "White Martians" in several different Justice League story arcs, written by Mark Waid and Grant Morrison.

    • Nuclear Disarmament Superman going before the UN General Assembly and disarming the world bears a number of parallels to the movie Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.

    • Superman: "..I will continue to uphold the ideals of truth and justice, not just for America, but for all the world."
      Referring to the end of the introductory monologue to the 1951 - 1957 series, The Adventures of Superman, starring George Reeves: ...who disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a neverending battle for Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

    • The Flash: Buh-bye. Emulating the phrase popularized by David Spade on Saturday Night Live in the "Airline Stewardess" skits.

    • The Flash: So you want us to be some kind of ... super friends?
      A reference to the SuperFriends TV series, a Hanna Barbara animated version of the Justice League that aired in the early 70's.

    • No Man Escapes DC Comics Continuity:
      This story is in part an adaption of Justice League of America 140-141 (first series), "No Man Escapes the Manhunter." That story featured the "original" Silver Age Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, rather than John Stewart. It also incorporates elements of Cosmic Odyssey. In that mini-series John Stewart destroys a planet, although he is never put on trial.
