The Justice League battles the Fatal Five, (Tharok, Emerald Empress, Validus, Mano and the Persuader). Based on the characters created by Jim Shooter.
User Reviews: This one flew under the radar for me, I’ve only just learned of it’s existence so there was no build up or excitement.
It tells the story of villains from the future traveling through time for an unscrupulous plot and the Justice League stepping up to stop them.
So basically what I’m trying to say is it’s pretty generic stuff with absolutely no surprises. Wait that’s not entirely true, it’s full of very odd choices from the DC Universe. I mean seriously, a big character in this is Mr Terrific………….Mr……….Terrific! I understand them wanting to broaden peoples horizons but this seems like a weird way of doing it.
Animated in the kiddie friendly Saturday morning style it’s basically exactly that. A tad more violent and with one single expletive that isn’t enough to separate it from what you’d see during kiddie time on the weekend. It’s essentially like a 2 parter episode, and not a very interesting one at that.
Sure this isn’t the worst, in fact it’s not even the worst they’ve made lately but that’s pretty much because they played it safe and made something so generic it’s hard to call it bad.
Watchable for big animated DC fans but nothing to rush to see.
Interesting choice of characters
Generic, cliched, did I mention generic?
