Justice League Unlimited one of the most ambitious American cartoons ever produced.
Justice League Unlimited one of the most ambitious American cartoons ever produced. JLU is really the culmination of 15 years of the Timmverse.
The Timmverse is the DC Comics animated universe created by Bruce Timm and his partners. It started in the early 90s with Batman: The Animated Series, added Superman: The Animated Series, and ended with JLU.
Batman: TAS started out very self-contained and viewers saw little of the larger DC universe. Superman: TAS opened it up somewhat. But JLU just exploded onto the screen. Dozens and dozens of DC heroes and villains were sharing the screen and sharing adventures. Some of these heroes were amazingly obscure for a mainstream animated project.
It's really amazing what was accomplished here. Many of these heroes and villains had never before been animated or on TV. And many might never be again. It was possibly a once in a lifetime event for fans of the DC Universe. Thanks you Mr. Timm!moreless
Bruce Timm's climax!
I love Bruce Timm's work with the DC animation universe. Batmas TAS and Superman TAS were fantastic in capturing what both those heroes were about, with Gotham being dark and sinister while Metropolis was bright and colorful. They still remain as the most as the most faithful adaptations to the mythology of these characters and show a great understanding into who they are and how they would interact with the world around them. Having said that, when viewed in this day and age, they seem to be leading up to this show, like how the individual Marvel superhero movies led up to The Avengers. The dynamic and relationship between the characters are masterfully done and their personalities are captured so well that this has to be the best way to be introduced to the DC universe ever. While there ARE a few elements that I could have done without, such as liberties taken for the obvious reason of increasing the diversity in the group, such as John Stewart as the Green Lantern and the replacement of Aquaman with Hawkgirl. I don't have a problem with diversifying a group but it has to be an improvement on what it was replacing and in this aspect, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who don't think of Hal Jordan as the best Lantern. As for Aquaman, there still is no extensive work on one of the founders of the Justice League who often gets sidelined, probably due to the perception that he would be as popular with audiences as other characters. Personally, I find him to be far more interesting than Shayera, who seemed to be shoehorned in here to appease the more feminist viewers. Regardless, this is great show, even with its limited shortcomings, and should be viewed by people who not only love comic books but are fans of action cartoons in general.moreless
This show was awesome, I loved the badass theme song, which made this cartoon epic. Not only that, but the maturity, sophistication and class of the characters. The plot was great and the characters bonded well. If only Batman was shown in more episodes, it would have been epicer but hey, he's only a part-timer. Anyways, a great cartoon, I loved watching this as a kid.
Top 10 Best Show By Cartoon Network

As you can tell by my TV.com name I love the Justice League. It is one of the best shows out there and I watch it all the time. It Rocks!!!
This show's mastery of the superhero world, brought to you by DC, is completely amazing because of its use of mixing in all the the beloved heroes we all know. Truley amazing in every sense of the word. The show has such a good use of using the perfect choice of who we want to see saving the day.
This show DEFINES the animated superhero genre.
The title says it all people. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this show whatsoever, save for the fact that am extremely and inconsolably upset that it had to end. The beginning was one that I dare say no other animated superhero show will be able to duplicate or come close to the awesomeness of for a very long time. Over the course of the series, the appeal never dimmed and, even when the universe was expanded into Justice League Unlimited, the character development of the founding members was never sacrificed. On the contrary, it was enhanced to its fullest potential while other characters (such as Huntress, Question, Green Arrow, and Black Canary) were given just as much attention and development time. This is a great show that I'm sad to say will probably be replicated and stretched thin by others who seek to piggy back off of its excellence for the benefit of other animated television media.moreless
The Best Episode of Justice League
The second part of the episode Hereafter is completely different from the first. This episode reveals that Superman is not really dead, but in fact transported away to a future, desolate world that he later realizes is Earth. It focuses on Superman surviving in the wilderness for perhaps months as he journeys toward a Justice League com-link signal. Superman's resourcefulness leads us to believe that he may actually have been a boy scout.
Superman meets a very different Randal Savage, who as we know is immortal. Having survived for the past 30,000 years, Savage has learned to cope with the fact that he was responsible for killing everyone on Earth. His character is remarkable, having become a philosopher in his countless millenniums of life. He has realized that his quest to rule the world was pointless, and instead tries to rebuild what is left.
Savage had, at one point, tried to make a time machine, but what he could build with his limited resources only allowed a limited type. He could only travel to a point in the past where he did not already exist. However, Superman was already dead in his present, so he would happily make the journey. He and Savage work together to build the machine. Superman goes back and prevents Savage of the past from destroying Earth. Savage sees the Earth from 30,000 years in the future as it would have been if he had not destroyed it, and thanks Superman just before disappearing from existence. (It's pretty optimistic, if you ask me, assuming that humans will still be alive so far in the future.)
This is a superb episode, the finest example of the kind of creativity and genius I have come to expect from Timm and the other guys who continually make exceptional work for the DCAU.
I especially love science fiction-type shows, which are captured well in just about every episode of Batman Beyond. But my favorite superhero will always be Superman, and giving him this awesome time-travel storyline resulted in an epic, classic story. My favorite of the whole Justice League Series, which deserves much more praise than it has received.moreless
Awsome show!! Ties up the end of the DCAU really well!
OK, love it, love it, love it!! This show was really awsome! I was sad to see it end, but I really liked how they in the first episodes, talked about the origins of the characters such as Wonder Woman's decision to help out against the Impirium. In the last few episodes, tied up some loose story ends, such as Supergirl's departure, and the second end of Solomon Grundy. In select episodes, they also made the characters have a lighter side especially if they are normally stern characters, (ie Batman's last quote of the series, and him finally falling asleep after a hard night of detective work.) Very well done, and I give it a Big 10!!moreless
