Together, they've saved the world countless times from unimaginable dangers. But the price has been high. Their ranks have diminished after fighting off an alien invasion and with new dangers arising at an ever-increasing pace, the remaining crime fighters realize that protecting the entire world is going to take more technology and more manpower. A lot more. Featuring the original seven Leaguers - Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, J'onn J'onzz, Green Lantern and Hawkgirl - now joined by an unlimited selection of allies including Green Arrow, Supergirl and Black Canary. But some think that so many heroes, so much power, is too much power and a conspiracy against them named Cadmus is growing. And after years of foiled plots and repeated beatings, the galaxy's worse villains finally have a plan: strength in numbers! Led by Lex Luthor, the Legion of Doom prepares to dominate the universe. First order of business: destroy the Justice League!

- Excellent follow-up to other DCAU shows, like Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, Justice League, and even Batman Beyond.
- Hugely expanded roster of heroes.
- Intriguing overarching story.
- A very "adult" show, meaning that the themes presented aren't always simple. A great deal of depth to the writing, which I have come to expect from Timm and the DCAU staff.
- A decent send-off to the DCAU.
- Only 39 episodes. It deserved a lot more.
- It marks the end of the DCAU. The end of an era, to be sure.
Any fan of comics, other DCAU properties, the original Justice League series, or superheroes in general should own this.
Set a few years after the previous season ends, the Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Martian Manhunter, and later, Hawkgirl) have moved in to a new headquarters and substantially expanded their roster, now including just about every B-andC-list hero in the DCU. (A few of them even get story arcs of their own.) Besides the usual array of supervillians, gods, monsters, and natural disasters to deal with, the League must now face Project Cadmus; an Illuminati-like shadow cabinet of mad scientists, sorcerers, and crooked government agents hellbent on starting a war between superhumans and the government.
I bloody love this series! Some episodes are hilarious, others are tragic or downright scary, others leave unresolved questions that may never be answered and will certainly wrack your brain long after the credits have rolled. I can only give a resounding roar of applause for this series, it's writers, and animators. (Actually, I think animation looks better in HD than live action does!)
Disc 1 has a bit of growing pains as the writers seem to be trying to figure out exactly what to do with all of the superheroes, but within a few episodes the writers start to hit their stride and the show becomes significantly more enjoyable. Disc 3 has a worthwhile "Legion of Doom" arc although not quite as good as Disc 2.
The universe is continued from "Justice League" (without unlimited). A few episodes here and there reference the events from the previous series. But this series is designed with the proper flashbacks to explain the relevant details. There are at least two episodes which directly reference characters and events from "Batman Beyond"
This show is just a delight. Cleverly written dialogue with a massive excellent cast and some great stories/story arcs.
It's important to note that though this show stands alone quite well, it's part of a universe that ties to 6+ other shows/movies that shared voice actors as well as writers. When the same creative minds and voices lead the material for 20+ years they can pull off some amazing feats.
For example: the climax of season 2 of JLU (2004) is a Chekov's gun that was actually loaded in an episode of Superman TAS (1997). Whereas the season 2 finale is an epilogue to Batman Beyond (1999) which is itself a continuation of Batman TAS (1992). It's no wonder this show felt so satisfying to watch.
