  • The Secret Society of Super Villains get more than they bargained for.

    I love this show so much, and really hate to see it go. But it looks like the final 2 episodes are going to end the series with a bang.

    Spoilers. Episode recap.
    Lex finds out that there are more pieces of Brainiac in the universe and has the SSoSV help him convert their hideout into a space ship to go after it. When Talia thinks she isn’t getting enough attention from Lex she decides to set Grodd free which sets up the SSoSV on SSoSV action. Lex shoots Grodd out the airlock and uses Talia to reconstitute Brainiac. But it’s not just Brainiac that emerges, Darkseid is back and he got an upgrade thanks to Brainiac. He goes to Apocalypse to gather his army, first stop Earth. Back on Earth Lex and the SSoSV come to give the JLU the good news.

    The animation in this episode was fantastic. This episode also had some of the best fight and action scenes in the series. Even though it was just a set-up episode for the all out war between Darkseid and Apocalypse versus the JLU and SSoSV it was still one of the better eppys for this season.

    Can’t wait for next weeks episode, which will be the very last episode of Timm’s DCAU forever.
