Justice League Action - "Shazam Slam" (clip)

The world’s greatest DC Super Heroes are heading to Cartoon Network in the premiere of Justice League Action, an all-new animated series that will kick off with “Shazam Slam,” a four-part special event debuting, Friday, Dec. 16 at 6:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based on iconic DC characters, Justice League Action will premiere new episodes Saturday mornings on Cartoon Network, beginning Dec. 24.
 
In "Shazam Slam," the villainous Black Adam battles Batman on the Rock of Eternity and unleashes a horde of Djinn determined to turn the Earth back to its pre-human, volcanic state.   Affected by the otherworldly powers of these primordial monsters, Batman becomes possessed and is turned into a giant flying Batmonster laying waste to the Hall of Justice, with only Superman capable of taking the fight to the Dark Knight. One by one, the Justice League - with the help of Shazam (voiced by Sean Astin) and The Wizard (voiced by Carl Reiner) - must hunt down and defeat each Djinn in order to yet again save the world from destruction.

Arrow: Don't Call it a Rebuild

Wow…

Oftentimes in sports, when an organization is struggling and has a string of bad years, they’ll do what’s called a rebuild—trading guys away in order to get pieces back that they feel can develop and complement some existing players into a winning product years down the line.  It’s often a touchy subject, as most organizations never want to admit they’re in rebuild mode and the fans don’t want to have to “suffer” through the growing pains of young players and a team that can be a mess for the next few seasons.

Arrow: An Alien Life

This week, the #DCTV Couch Club is doing something a little different. Since the four CW shows are crossing over, we decided to have our club of #DCTV fans cross over as well. Therefore, each new Couch Club post this week will feature all four members of the club discussing that night’s episode of the crossover. In addition, each Couch Club member has also shot a video sharing their individual thoughts about the crossover.

Arrow: One Angry Vigilante

In the words of Larry David, tonight’s episode was “prettyyyy, prettyyyyy, prettyyyy, pretty good…”

If you’ve followed my column this season, you’ve probably learned that I’m a fan of “B” list characters. There’s just something about them. I think it stems from being a kid and noticing that a lot of the “smaller” characters always had some of the coolest costumes. The other factor was that there was always a mystery to them. They weren’t the main guys, so you never really knew much about them in the pre-internet days.

Arrow: There's No Crying in Superhero'ing

Not too shabby of an episode.

There were a couple of interesting things happening there… 

First off, Evelyn takes on a bigger role—stepping out from the background and moving into the foreground of the recruits. 

Up until this episode, the “stronger” personalities of the other team members sort of kept Artemis as an afterthought.  But some of the events in the episode seemed to propel her to the focal point of the episode. 

Which, actually, I had mixed feelings about and I’m curious to know what you guys think.  Let me explain…
