High above the Earth in the great Watchtower of the Justice League, there are assembled the world's seven greatest heroes created from the cosmic legends of the universe - Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern, the Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl. Their mission: To fight injustice, to right that which is wrong, and to serve all mankind.

It was planetary pandemonium for animation fans when the creators of "Batman: The Animated Series" unveiled the monster hit series "Justice League" back in 2001. Taking the premise of Hanna-Barbera's classic "Superfriends" [of uniting heroes to fight evil on a global scale as originally done in the comic books] and giving it a 21st century upgrade, the show's producers boldly took the time to flesh out the members of the League, adding a depth to what motivates them as heroes. This was never done with the Justice League of the 60s, 70s & 80s. Justice League featured Emmy-worthy production values in animated storytelling and brilliant thought and care in voice casting. Not to mention a magnificent main title theme by Lolita Ritmanis. Given the show's mature tone, fans were dumbfounded that DVDs of Justice League were only released as single disc "DC Comics Kids Collection" volumes with no more than 3-4 eps instead of season sets. (Note: If you own all of the original JL volumes then you already have Justice League - Season One episodes 1-15, and should consider the remaining 11 episodes plus the exclusive EXTRAS on this set before deciding.)

It only took 'em FOUR years (since the first JL volume released), but Warner Home Video will finally release the LONG-AWAITED Justice League - Season One DVD on March 21st! This 4-disc (575 min.) set features all 26 episodes (multi-part arcs); Full-Frame (1.

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkgirl & Martian Manhunter! Seven DC Comics legends who normally work alone but are brought together out of necessity to form a team of heroes to protect earth from threats both on and above it. They form The Justice League!

After several one disc releases with one or two episodes, Justice League finally gets its own DVD set! While I agree with many reviewers about the packaging and the format of the DVD's not being quite up to snuff, the set is STILL worth purchasing! Here are the eppys with the bonus features:

Disc 1

Secret Origins, Pt. 1 - Superman & Batman run across a new threat to mankind that's too big for even them to handle! They run across a new ally in J'hon Jonz, The Maratian Manhunter. But this new alien threat catch on to them and try to take them out!

Secret Origins, Pt. 2 - The trio of Superman, Batman and Maratian Manhunter receive help in the form of Hawkgirl, The Green Lantern (John Stewart) and The Flash. They also get unexpected help from Wonder Woman (I believe JL is the first time Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl and this version of Green Lantern has appeared in any DC animated series/The Flash appeared once in Superman: The Animated Series).

Secret Origins, Pt. 3 - The seven heroes band together to make a final stand against the alien threat to earth!

In Blackest Night, Pt. 1 - A tragic incident from Green Lantern's past comes back to haunt him as The Manhunters come to earth to bring him back for trial.......for destroying an entire planet!

In Blackest Night, Pt.

I'm thrilled. After multiple single-disc releases, Warner Home Video has finally decided to collect all the Justice League season 1 episodes in one set. This is the original series with the main 7 heroes, not the "Unlimited" incarnation it became last year. The stories are all two-part adventures, with two three-part epics book-ending the season. We get the following:

Secret Origins (3 parts)

In Blackest Night (2 parts)

The Enemy Below (2 parts)

Injustice For All (2 parts)

Paradise Lost (2 parts)

War World (2 parts)

Brave and the Bold (2 parts)

Fury (2 parts)

Legends (2 parts)

A Knight of Shadows (2 parts)

Metamorphosis (2 parts)

The Savage Time (3 parts)

In retrospect, most of the first season stories are pretty bland compared to what we're getting today. The writing is cliche, the stories are basic, and the animation is stiff and questionable in places. However once you account for the growing pains of any series, there's some fun material here. J'onn J'onzz, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman get spotlighted and developed this season. Etrigan, Aquaman, and Metamorpho guest star, and tons of new enemies from all over the DC universe make their appearance. The first season is if anything, a homage to the simpler story telling of the comic book silver age. The stories get more dramatic and powerful as the season progresses, and the love and respect the creators have for their material really shines through. Plus even at its worst, Justice League is still better than most of the shows kids are subjected to these days.

This set will come with 3 commentaries, interviews, and *possibly* rehash some of the featurettes from the single disc releases.
