Justice League

One of the greatest things to come out of the early 21st century has to be the Justice League cartoon and I never wanted to miss a single episode.  This show was so popular and had a great staying power that it lasted from  from 2001 right to 2004 and then became Justice League Unlimited which then finished airing in 2006. 

The writers and producers of the DC animated universe really love the comics to such a degree that they even try to carefully choose the voice actors for their shows and Justice League was no exception With a strong cast like Kevin Conroy as Batman, Michael Rosenbaum as The Flash, Susan Eisenburg as Wonder Woman and many more, it’s hard not to fall in love with the characters and even picture these voices while reading your comics. 

The DC animated Universe was great at introducing people to the DC universe and keeping it simple so that when you jumped into the comics you still felt at home . This is a testament to the team at Warner Bros. Animation, truly they seemed to have nothing bad in the nineties when it came to animated series. Though I have to strongly admit to the DC universe because we are talking about comics that have literally been around for Decades and that leaves a lot of back story to cover, this can get hard when you have to pick and choose what to change or leave out completely and yet the team behind Justice League just had a second sense for it.

I may be giving this show a lot of praise and I believe it is in the right mind set it was a show that knew how to appeal to kids but also to adults and it was not afraid to tackle hard issues like a series relationship with multiple cast members.  It was things like this that made the show stand out especially since it was written so well thanks to people such as Paul Dini, Dwayne McDuffie, J. M. DeMatteis, and more. This series was so well received by the fans that the series was released on blu ray and I have to recommend the purchase the quality is that good.

Guess I should end tonight with a strong note and leave you with the opening themes of the series which were epic and great at getting you pumped for the series
