  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • The Master: And yet, here you are.
      Deadman: "Here you are"? What kind of lousy wisdom is "Here you are?"

    • Monk: This humble one begs your forgiveness, but no outsider is permitted in the temple of Nanda Parbat.
      Atomic Skull: That's cute, kid-–get out of the way or I'll spank you.
      Monk: (easily catches his punch) This would also not be permitted.

    • Devil Ray: Stand aside or you're dead.
      The Master: In the fullness of time we are all dead.

    • Devil Ray: When Giganta gets out of prison, she ain't going to appreciate you holding on to her boyfriend like that.
      Tala: That's her problem. Giganta's not nearly enough woman for Grodd.

    • Deadman: Rama Kushna. Just like you to show up too late to help.
      Rama Kushna: Your impertinence is as refreshing as always. But have a care – the gods are capricious.

    • Superman: Come on, Bruce. I know a burger place in Metropolis that has the best fries on the East Coast. And the milkshakes are so thick… (Deadman takes him over) …I need your help.
      Wonder Woman: That's pretty thick.

    • Wonder Woman: Grodd? Think he's put together a new Secret Society?
      Batman: Except this time he's doing a better job of keeping the secret.

    • Batman: Solovar, this is Batman
      Solovar: What a coincidence – I was about to call you.
      Batman: Wanted to give you a head's up. We have reason to believe Grodd is heading your way.
      Solovar: You don't say? That might explain the armies of super villains attacking the city.

    • Deadman/Superman: Gorilla City?
      Wonder Woman: A hidden city of super-intelligent talking gorillas with technology far beyond anything humans have created.
      Deadman/Superman: No, really?
      Wonder Woman: You're the ghost from the Himalayas having trouble believing this.
      Deadman/Superman: Point.

    • Deadman/Wonder Woman: You killed my teacher, my friend!
      Devil Ray: You'll have to be more specific, lady, I've killed a lot of people.

    • Superman: Is everything okay?
      Wonder Woman: Well, I'm sort of missing Flash's obligatory joke about how Grodd made a monkey out of us.
      Superman: Just couldn't let it go unsaid.
      Wonder Woman: Obligatory.

    • Lex Luthor; Since there's only one monkey left around here, I'm assuming that the Justice League found a way to stop the carrier wave.
      Gorilla Grodd: There's more then one way to peel a banana.

    • Luthor: I wasn't going to do this for another few weeks, but seriously! Turning all of humanity into apes? That was your master plan?!?! (shoots Grodd) Listen up, from now on I'm in charge of this operation - anybody got a problem with that?

    • Luthor: Bizzaro, Superman is your best friend, understand?
      Bizzaro: Bizarro understand. Superman am friend. Bizarro must kill him!

    • Luthor: Bizzaro, you despise me, right?
      Bizzaro: Uh-huh. Bizzaro hate Luthor. He do anything for him.
      Luthor: Good! I mean, bad! Anyway, take care of those monks.
      Bizarro: Okay...

    • Plot
      Grodd's plan to transform humanity into apes, including the Justice League, alludes to a storyline called JLApe, which appeared in JLA-related DC annuals for 1996.

    • Deadman: You know, when they beam down on that TV show, they never miss.
      Deadman relates the Watchtower's teleporter to the similar technology used on the SF series Star Trek.
