Superheroes as Underdogs
4 June 2008 | by (Burlington, VT) – See all my reviews

This very entertaining episode features several rank & file Justice League members - none with any natural powers - forced to take on a Superman-level villain.

There is something endearing about these not-so-super superheroes trying to rise to the occasion. Everybody likes the idea of being "super," but when it comes down to brass tacks, there's no hero like an underdog.

Still, my favorite part of the episode is at the beginning, when they substitute for Superman at a parade. The assignment is humiliating, and the crowd's disappointment makes it worse still. Thank goodness the fast-talking western hero Vigilante gets his fellow heroes to show off a little!
