The Challenge: Batman and Robin (Adam West and Burt Ward of the live-action Batman TV series) lead The Flash, Green Lantern and more JLA members against The Riddler (Frank Gorshin reprising his TV role), Mordru, Weather Wizard and other Doom-dealers. The Legion's ultimate gambit: trick the heroes into downing a diabolical depowering drink!
The Roast: Poking fun beats swapping punches when celebrity host Ed McMahon emcees a rowdy rave-up. Who knew DC Super Heroes and villains packed as much verbal wit as physical grit when not locked in mortal combat? These Legends will leave you laughing.

The first and much better segment, "The Challenge," features several dreaded villains, including Solomon Grundy, Dr. Siavana, Giganta, Weather Wizard, Sinestro, and the Riddler (the ever-fiesty Frank Gorshin) scheming to set off a diabolical "doomsday" bomb to destroy the world. They then unwisely challenge our league of super-heroes, including Green Lantern, Captain Marvel, the Flash, Hawkman, Huntress, Black Canary, and Batman & Robin (Adam West and Burt Ward) to stop the bomb within sixty minutes. One should note that this special features the first live-action appearances of the featured DC Comics characters (except for Captain Marvel and the trio of "Batman" characters). Among the highlights are: Green Lantern visiting a gypsy fortune teller (Sinestro); Captain Marvel chatting with a demented psychiatrist (the Riddler), and Batman & Robin buying a "lemon" motorcycle & side car from a disguised Weather Wizard. Don't miss the scenes of Dr.Read more ›
However, there are some actual funny moments.
Frank Gorshin is brilliant. Though, how he could have been left off the Roast is mind boggling.
Aunt Minerva looking for a husband is great. Flash "I'm the World's Fastest Man!" Aunt Minerva "Pass."
Solomon Grundy pounding on Ed McMahon.
Get it on the cheap, if you like camp.
The saving grace is not in either of those things, but the people involved. Adam West, Burt Ward & Frank Gorshin never miss a step & remain in character as Batman, Robin & the Riddler (respectively). It's almost as if those three didn't realize the Batman tv show had ended 10-15 years earlier. All three show genuine enthusiasm for reviving their characters & they have fun with it. Also, Howard Morris, as Dr. Sivana, was a good choice. His unique vocal stylings (rampant in earlier Hanna-Barberra cartoons) fits his character perfectly. Charlie Callas lends his unique twist to portraying Sinestro while the other actors do an adequate job. The Huntress and Black Canary are there simply as eye-candy but who's going to complain?
Best costumes: the Huntress, Solomon Grundy, Giganta and Mordru. In addition, there are three guest stars on board for this superheroic parody- Ed McMahon (The Tonight Show), Marsha Warfield (Night Court) and veteran comedienne Ruth Buzzi. I was quite surprised to see them of the as a part of this.
The low points: Hawkman's (lack of) acting, seeing a magical villian on a jet-ski & the introduction of Ghetto-man (I'm not making this up!Read more ›
