Justice League Episode 5
Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkgirl are accidentally transported to a parallel world and discover the Justice Guild of America, who are comic book characters in the Justice League's world. As they traverse this world and help the Justice Guild of America fight the Injustice Guild, they soon discover that not everything is what it seems since the end of their comic series.
Note: The episode is dedicated to Gardner Fox, a Golden and Silver Age comic writer who co-created both the Justice Society of America (JSA) and the Justice League of America (JLA), the comics on which the Guild --and this series, respectively -- are based. Originally, the showrunners wanted to use the JSA, but DC Comics publisher Paul Levitz felt that the story was inappropriate, so they altered the names and designs of the team. However, a teaser was produced for the episode with the JSA.
Note: This episode is notable as a 'hidden crossover' with Teen Titans, as the Royal Flush Gang is voiced by the five principal actors from that series. The gang's designs are also based on the Teen Titans voice actors.
Leah Cohen is the General Coordinator for the Agricultural Justice Project, which seeks empowerment, justice, and fairness for all who labor from farm to retail. AJP provides farms and food businesses with technical tools to improve work and trade practices including a stakeholder-driven certification program for social justice standards called the Food Justice Certification (FJC) label.
The still weak Superman uses his telescopic vision to scan for any trap that his colleague might fall into and sees him heading for a coal mine on an asteroid. There, Lobo ambushes Hawkman, knocks him to the ground, and shoots at close range. But Superman interposes and absorbs the blast, revived by the yellow sun rising behind him. He smashes Lobo away, and then both he and Hawkman become involved in a drawn out struggle on the asteroid with the stubborn bounty hunter while Space Cabbie looks on from the cab which has landed. Inside, the glass cell has been damaged and Mr. Mind has escaped to hide behind the dashboard. Cabbie cannot reach him so tries flattery on the egotistical worm and asks for a selfie to add to his collection. When Mr. Mind agrees, he blinds him with the flash and catches him, but a hurtling Lobo crashes into the cab so that the worm escapes again. As the two superheroes continue to batter the biker, he offers to split the reward with them, but then steps back onto the fleeing Mr. Mind and squashes him to a pulp. Lobo wipes the mess off his boot and keeps part of it before throwing the bulk to Superman. He then rides away on his bike with enough evidence of the victim's death to collect the reward.
Elsewhere, Mr. Mind quickly regenerates but finds himself imprisoned in another transparent cell, this time in the Watchtower. Space Cabbie grabs a selfie with him and then hesitantly asks the two superheroes for his fare. Superman admits that he has no cash but Hawkman presents a piece of coal that he has plucked from his feathers and his colleague takes it and squeezes it into a huge diamond. Cabbie takes it and is almost satisfied but is finally happy when he gets another selfie with the two Justice Leaguers.
This was a Superboy heavy episode. He pretty much had to have one given his anger issues and his issues with Superman it was best to address them early on. Rather than leave them in the background for a long time. None of them got solved, but they were dealt with and developed more. No easy fixes for these problems.
Criminal Justice season 3 (Adhura Sach) is releasing new episodes every Friday, which has unfortunately caused a significant amount of backlash from expectant fans online who wish to binge the entire series in one.
The episode opens up with Scarecrow and Red Hood having escaped Nightwing and the GCPD. Hood is worried that Nightwing is going to keep coming, especially now that he knows everything. Crane is less worried and reveals to Jason his master plan:

Jen Carnig: Steven Renderos is the Executive Director of MediaJustice. Steven was previously MediaJustice's long-time campaign director, leading initiatives for prison, phone justice and net neutrality, fighting giant corporate mergers and pushing for platform accountability measures. Steven, thank you for joining me today on Keep Me Posted.
Jen Carnig: So I'd love to hear a little bit from you, just off the bat, kind of about what MediaJustice is, exactly. Throughout 2020, we have heard calls for racial justice across the country, especially following the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and so many other people of color. What is MediaJustice and where does it fit into all of these calls?
Jen Carnig: The organized lie" is a big thing. It feels, in many ways, insurmountable, especially, looking at all the areas you just listed out from immigration and policing to climate change, an existential threat. For me, I often feel very overwhelmed by those big, daunting areas of injustice. And I'm curious if you could maybe name something positive for us as we are opening a new year. What are examples of media justice, of storytellers that are doing it well, what are the stories that are inspiring you and giving you light right now?
Steven Renderos: Y'know, I think that our future is really tied to our ability to own and control the media and technology that shapes our lives. That's always been true, but increasingly even more so today as technology and media just embed every single function of our day-to-day life. So, you know, I think, really, think about the issues you care about and on every front, be it climate, be it education, be it criminal justice, policing, there is a technology intersection with that issue and it means that we have to pay attention and we have to fight for the kinds of changes to our media and technology that make the other wins possible. You know, we're not going to get to a police-free future without eliminating surveillance technology. We're not going to get to a future in which we're taking on climate correctly and reversing the course of climate change without tackling the world's biggest polluters, of which technology contributes to quite a bit. We're not gonna ensure that everyone has a 21st century education without the kinds of resources that ensure that they can take advantage of the media and technology that exists today. So that would be my biggest thing. It's like, don't lose sight of how media and technology is actually fundamentally shaping the way our world works today. And, you know, there are no longer secondary issues in the way that, when we first started as an organization, we might've seen the representation of young people in media as an issue that was important, but not more important than fighting policing against and criminalization of youth and by police, or fighting the incarceration of young people today. You know, those frontline issues that we care so much about are very tied and very wedded closely to the media and technology fights that we also care about. So, prioritizing them and fighting for structural change there because I do think it makes a fundamental difference to all the other stuff we care about.
It's fun to look back on the triumphs of the DC Animated Universe, which still stands as one of the most accurate adaptations of Superman, Batman, and their many superhero comrades. Having already ranked the best episodes of Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League, EW is taking a look back at highlights from the biggest DC cartoon ever.
The DCAU shows did more than anyone else to position Darkseid as the ultimate villain of the DC Universe. Whenever viewers heard Michael Ironside's voice uttering evil commands, they knew things were serious. Confrontations with Darkseid marked the explosive finale of Superman: The Animated Series, the best episodes of the original Justice League series, and this, the final entry in the canon.
A big part of Justice League was that every story was two episodes. Each story was so massive that not only would it need the greatest heroes in the universe to come together, but it also couldn't be contained to just a single 22-minute episode. What this ended up creating, though, was a fair amount of episodes that felt too long. Justice League Unlimited did away with the automatic two-parters, which allowed for single episode classics like "For the Man Who Has Everything," "The Ties That Bind," and "Patriot Act." 041b061a72
