Far from home was a decent ep I thought. I got to agree with the others that the Supergirl/Brainiac thing seemed to come out of left field. Although I would have loved to seen Superman reaction when he found out the boy's name. And the crisis image was a nice touch. I alway thought Bouncing Boy was useless character, this ep didn't change that opinion.

This is the kind of ep that needs a 2-parter to flesh out and make it feasible. But as we all know, JLU doesn't have that kind of time anymore. :nono:

It's a waste of potential, really. I mean, why even bring Carter in only to have it turn out like that?


Because JLU's never followed the comics and has always went it's own way with it's own developments? Hawkman's better off being a crass right-sided asshole who loves arguing with Green Arrow, besides, having him paried up with Hawkgirl is akin to stereotypical discrimination. :laugh:

He only existed in this to give comic fans something to talk about and add a nice little love triangle dynamic, the same purpose the bland Vixen serves, only Carter actually had a likeable persona and a good amount of story to him

Thirdly, it's to safeguard the future of Batman Beyond, as I've already stated.

Except John doe'snt acutally love her, he's just using her to stick two fingers up at "destiny", he wants to be in control and not fall into a set course of history just because he fathers Warhawk.
Carter says it best in the episode when he says "We know how this story ends" to Hawkgirl, and accepts John is her only true love, John is the only one who does'nt want to admit he wants to be with her

Vixen's sole purpose is to be the third wheel and has had no real character to call her own, she's just there to get in the way of a couple that matters to the canon of Batman Beyond. Kind of glad "Ancient History"
Sticks her in a badly injured state, it makes you wonder if she'll ever recover completly

That's not cool. In fact, that's sorta gay. BB canon has made JLU extremely predictable for an episode.

Fantastic episode and as always, except for the Supergirl and the Legion of Superheroes, just as powerful and well told.

Unexpected twists... and the love triangle was superb.

I hope we at least continue to get movies from this. That moment where Shi-ara said, "Don't you dare say you don't love me...." made me swoon like a girl watching a soap opera. :thumbs:

Also, infidelity... man, JLU is ferkin' adult. Great episode.

JLU forever. :buttrock:

This week, the final arc begins with "Alive!", an all Legion-centered ep, and definitely one of the best of this season.

Oh, and Keith? It's Shayera, not Shi-ara. :p

Alive! was a Legion-centered ep tonight. No heroes until the very end of the ep.
I wish there'd been more eps like this earlier on in the season, but better now than not at all, I guess. The biggest moment tonight of course, was Lex's plot to bring back Brainiac, which he sort of did. The problem was...

He brought Darkseid back with him.[/HIDE]

Next week, the final episode...and with it the last remnant of CN's coolness.:nono:

It was an interesting episode, and it's always interesting to see one that centers around the antagonists for once. I liked seeing all the villain vs. villain stuff, but after about ten seconds I gave up trying to keep track of who was on who's side. Good episode all around, although I guess it was kind of...inevitable they'd set up what they did for the series finale.

has left HJU. Not coming back.
Alive was pretty good.


[hide]So far, we get to know what was Luthor's up to and he bought Darkseid back alive.

I loved Darkseid's new costume. It looks awesome.

I was surprised that Luthor and his goons came to JLU and told Superman "We have a problem".

So next week, it is gonna be intense. Can't wait for this though.

Cartoon Network sucks!

It's better if fans view it as one whole episode because of how "Alive!" elongates the story behind the finale, there's a nice little in-joke to Japanease anime titles if you put them together "Alive! Destroyer":laugh: , I must be one of the few to get it.

But yeah, next week is the finale, Superman lets rip.

When i saw darkseid walk out of the chamber, two words came out of my mouth 'Oh ****...' JLU is going to go out in a blaze of glory. A fitting end to a great series.

what better way to end such an awesome series than with one of the ultimate villians of the DC universe, now all they need is Gog, The Anti-monitor, and Superboy Prime.


........... should I have added a spoiler tag?

A few late thoughts. Now this is how villians should be acting, especailly when they're at war with each other. Luthor planning for Grood to use his mental abilites fit right in with his character. And I knew it was coming by reading the responces here, but Darksied emerging from the chamber sent chill down my spine. The finale is going to kick so much ass it's not even funny

Well...here is is...the finale. And what a finale it is. It's got action, heroes, villians, knockdown, drag-out battles, slick animation, some really smart one liners and every character seem to get some time in the spotlight. There's a couple of grisly moments in there, too(Shayera getting speared through the wing, a Parademon getting his head sheared off). Everything seems paced just right in terms the action scenes, which is a good thing all around.

So what was wrong with Destroyer? Simply put--it felt seriously rushed. There was virtually nothing in the way of resolution or tying up loose ends, such as what happened with Darkseid supposedly invading New Genesis, other than a brief appearence by the New God, Lightray, who showed up just long enough to get knocked out and robbed by what was left of Luthor and the Legion. It would've made much more sense to extend Destroyer into a movie-length finale to address all this instead of cramming it all into 22 minutes.

I don't wanna get into the ep too deeply from here on, other than to say it's my personal opinion that in spite of the time constraints, there's a lot more good than bad here. Although being the biased JLU fanboy I am, I wanted so much more out of this. Although Diana's last line near the end gave me some hope for future revisitations after Superman: Brainiac Attacks hits DVD.

But until then...goodbye, JLU. The last remnant of Cartoon Network's good taste ends with you.
