YES! I finally got my paws on this - JLU Season One! Don't get me wrong, the first two seasons of Justice League were great! Justice League, after all, was the logical next step in the progression and maturation of the DC animated universe, which began with the superbly gritty Batman: TAS, followed by the aesthetically cleaner looking Superman: TAS. But, as a lifelong fan of crossover comics, where heroes interact daily, I was happily stunned when they, in effect, opened up the whole DC roster of heroes to the viewing audience. Justice League has always had sweeping, big-budget sensibilities and an escalated level of jeopardy. But with JLU, the scope expands even more and the stakes are raised even higher. Time travel, technology run amok, magic of the highest order, clandestine government operations - these are all effectively explored in JLU.

Warner Brothers may label it as the complete first season but this box set actually includes JLU Seasons 1 and 2 (chronologically Justice League seasons 3 and 4, if you really wanna get technical). Following the harrowing closing events of Justice League Season Two, in which the team thwarts an alien invasion and suffers betrayal from a League member, the third season finds the League expanding its roster from the original seven to over 50 costumed heroes, thus meriting the title change to Justice League Unlimited. These new episodes, while still occasionally showcasing the core members, tend to focus more on the new recruits. Noteworthy rookies are Green Arrow, Captain Atom, the Question, Black Canary, the Atom, Booster Gold, and Supergirl. JLU, unlike Justice League, features a continuing story arc which, in effect, inundates the whole season.

When the Cartoon Network picked up Seasons Three and Four of "Justice League" after Season Two finished, they did so with the conditions that 1) instead of two-part stories, they wanted half-hour, self-contained stories; and 2) they wanted a fresher version of the show that clearly differentiated Season Three [and up] from Seasons One and Two. The producers obliged. The result was the re-titled "Justice League Unlimited."

The series creators' mandate, according to producer/story editor Dwayne McDuffie, was simply to tell really good stories with very small groups of characters, combining some of the original heroes with the new ones. These half-hour, power-packed stories (most notably, the Stan Berkowitz/Robert Goodman-penned "Fearful Symmetry") ultimately snowballed into the highly-praised, two-season long "Cadmus arc" which involves a government conspiracy formed to combat the ever increasingly powerful Justice League. And don't forget "Epilogue" featuring a startling Batman revelation.

Watching the original founding members of the Justice League joined by an even greater collection of heroes including Supergirl, Green Arrow, Captain Atom, Booster Gold, Vigilante, and the Question is just fun unto itself. During a given episode, I'd be like Hey, Hawk & Dove! Hey, Booster Gold! Hey, The Question! Hey, Red Tornado! So, for me, part of the fun in having so many heroes available for JLU was seeing which hero (obscure or otherwise) would appear on the show (whether on a mission or in the background). A lot of the heroes would probably never get their own show, so JLU was a fun way of introducing these heroes in animated form.

JLU also benefited from more contributions from well-known comic book creators.

After the cataclysmic events of the "Star Crossed" season two finale of Justice League, the show was re-formatted and re-launched as Justice League Unlimited: and now featured an enormous cast of DC heroes uniting to take on an ever growing list of villains which threaten the world. In addition to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and the distrusted Hawkgirl; characters like Aquaman, Green Arrow, Supergirl, Captain Atom, Dr. Fate, Captain Marvel, Red Tornado, Black Canary, Wildcat, Huntress, the Atom, the Question, Hawk & Dove, Mr. Miracle, Big Barda, Booster Gold, Zatanna, Vixen, and Vigilante join the fold in one capacity or another. While it gets off to a shaky start, JLU really takes off in the second half of the first season as Cadmus forges ahead with their own agenda (led by Amanda Waller, voiced by the always excellent CCH Pounder) and Lex Luthor (still voiced by the great Clancy Brown) eyes the presidency, and the destruction of the JLU. The rest of the voice casting is superb as well, including mainstays like Kevin Conroy (still the best Batman voice ever) and Phil LaMar as Green Lantern, but the guest voices are just as great, including Wonder Years brothers Fred Savage and Jason Hervey in reverse roles as brothers Hawk & Dove, Dennis Farina as aging tough guy Wildcat, and Tom Everett Scott as the underappreciated Booster Gold. The villains that the JLU takes on are a nice assorted bunch as well, including Mongul, Doomsday, Solomon Grundy, and a delicious ode to the classic Suicide Squad lineup with Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and others.Read more ›
