Justice League: Secret Origins - (2002) - (DVD) - (animated) - (own)
Originally released in 2001 as the first 3 episodes of Season One of the Justice League TV Series that ran from 2001-2006. This pilot movie introduces how the Justice League came to be with the introduction of J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter, though he's never referred to by his superhero name in these episodes. Totalling 60 mins. we love this episode. Neither of us has watched it since ds was much younger, but it all came back as we re-watched it. This is a good production, intense but not dark with plenty of humour, suitable for the younger crowd as well. My favourite character is Hawkgirl; I just love her weapon. I usually love Flash but here he's portrayed mostly as a doofus who rushes into things without thinking first and an eye for the ladies, especially newcomer Princess Diana, who has not been named Wonder Woman in this episode. The other characters are already established: Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern. We will be donating this to the library; they don't have it but they do have 3 other Justice League DVD's so I asked ds if he'd like to borrow those and do a bit of a JL marathon and he was eager.
