    • Lex: Well, Metron, I'll soon be able to handle anything the universe throws at me. I'm about to become a god. Metron: You don't know what a god is, or what you are unleashing. Lex: "Tampering with forces beyond my control," nice try. Look, if you want my power, make your move, otherwise you can get lost. Metron: You will regret your decision, we all will. (Metron disappears)

    • Metron: We exist between two ticks of the clock. In my travels through the myriad paths of infinity, I have seen the first and the last, but what you do today threatens the entire universe; past, present, and future. Luthor: I should hope it does.

    • Luthor: I've reconfigured Grodd's cloaking field into a hyper-spatial drive! Killer Frost: You're not serious? Luthor: Little bit.

    • Tala: I don't like to compete for Lex with a dead computer. I want you to be my man in charge, like before. So...baby...what do you want? Grodd: Why, only you, my dear. And Luthor's fat head on a plate.

    • Lex Luthor: Wrong! I saw enough of those stars to determine the explosion's coordinates. It should be a simple matter. Tala: You saw the wild goose again! Concentrate on us, baby! Space is too far! Together we can rule this world!

    Notes (7)

    • When Darkseid is resurrected by Lex Luthor, his musical motif from Superman: The Animated Series is played. In this show, the motif is more rock-oriented, in keeping with Justice League Unlimited music.

    • Among the minions of Darkseid that appear without dialogue or uncredited are: Kanto, Granny Goodness, Mantis the Power Parasite, Vermin Vunderbarr, and the Female Furies (Bernadeth, Stompa, Lasha, Mad Harriet).

    • Among the Legion of Doom members that appear without dialogue are Cheetah, Heat Wave, Sinestro, Evil Star, Major Disaster, Lady Lunar, Blockbuster, Silver Banshee, Shade, KGBeast, Volcana, Monocle, Bloodsport, Bizarro, Star Sapphire, Crowbar, Fastball, Dr. Cyber, Rampage, Parasite, Hellgrammite, Key, and Copperhead.

    • Clancy Brown, Juliet Landau, Powers Booth, Bud Cort, Jennifer Hale, Walter (Lex) Lang, and Michael Ironside reprise their roles as Lex Luthor, Tala, Gorilla Grodd, Toyman, Killer Frost/Giganta, Atomic Skull, and Darkseid. Corey Burton reprises his roles of Brainiac and the Weather Wizard but is uncredited. Various roles in the past that have been played by certain actors such as George Newbern and Ted Levine are uncredited here and almost certainly played by actors already cast so as to avoid extra salaries.

    • This episode first aired on YTV in Canada on April 26, 2006.

    Trivia (7)

    • When Luthor is seen outside of the Metro Tower for the first time, Evil Star is nowhere to be seen. Switch to the Justice League, then close-up on Lex. Evil Star suddenly appears behind Lex. Where did he come from?

    • When Weather Wizard and Killer Frost are welding the ship's panels together, they heat and cool the seams together very quickly. Any welder/metal worker knows that if you cool hot metal quickly with liquid or other methods, it becomes brittle and prone to cracking. To prevent this, hot metal needs to air dry.

    • When Lex jumped over the balcony, you briefly see him wearing his armored gloves, but then they vanish, and we don't see them again until he confronts Grodd.

    • When Lex approaches the vessel that Darkseid appears in, he appears to be no more than a few feet away from the vessel.In the following shot, he is several meters away from the vessel.

    • Trivia: The surviving Legion of Doom members with Lex Luthor at the end are Heat Wave, Toyman, Giganta, Cheetah, Atomic Skull, Evil Star, Bizarro, Star Sapphire, Sinestro, Killer Frost, and Volcana.

    • Toyman: We're he-e-ere. Both the words and the way Toyman speaks them are virtually identical to the phrase spoken by Carol Ann in the Poltergeist films: "They're he-e-re."

    • Legion of Doom Redux At the start of the episode, the Legion retrofits their headquarters to make it space-flight ready, and flies with the help of large rockets underneath. The original Hall of Doom from the Challenge of the Superfriends show was also able to fly.
