Is this the end of The Justice League?, 2 March 2010
Author: Reginald D. Garrard from Camilla, GA

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The first installment of a the two-parter "Secret Society" sports some nifty dialog exchanges between the Gorilla Grodd's assemblage of bad guys as well as sharp barbs traded between the heroes of The Justice League.

Unknown to the latter, Grodd (Powers Boothe) is using his telepathic abilities to drive a wedge between the League members, resulting in the characters verbally assualting each other.

A well-written and wonderfully acted by the regular actors and the recurring ones, the story demonstrates how easy it is for even the most noble of heroes can be influenced by outside sources. It also shows "flaws" in the heroes' respective personalities: for example, Superman (George Newbern) comes across as slightly arrogant in regards to his "invulnerability" and Batman's (Kevin Conroy) tendency to be a loner questions his ability as a team player.

Because of this, the episode could possibly have been subtitled "Cracks in the armor".

Great voice-over work from Boothe, Ron Perlman ("Clayface"), Ted Levine ("Sinestro") and the regular cast.
