This was the episode I had been awaiting more than any of this TV series . .. and I was NOT disappointed! The thought of the two superhero big-guns joining forces on TV was always a big dream of mine, and this does the job magnificently. Each hero is given their own distinct personality: Batman, dark and imposing; Superman, strong yet gentle. The personalities of the villains were also a great contrast. My highlight was the knockdown-drag-out fight between the Joker's girl, Harley Quinn and Mercey Graves, Lex Luthor's assistant. I was also surprised at the level of maturity that the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Lois Lane was handled. I especially liked the reactions of everyone when Batman threw Superman across the nightclub (especially Superman's)! What I didn't like was the way in which Superman discovered Batman's identity. I won't reveal it, but suffice it to say that Batman would be better prepared for what Superman does. All I've got to say is that I hope that some studio will bring this story to the big screen with the proper actors (Val Kilmer as Batman, Kevin Sorbo as Superman) and director (Tim Burton, please come home!).
