Trivia

This episode pays homage to the old Marvel superheroes-as-outsiders team, the Defenders. In the comics the Defenders included Dr. Strange, the Hulk, Nighthawk, the Sub-Mariner, and the Silver Surfer among others. The respective counterparts in this episode are Dr. Fate, Solomon Grundy, Hawkgirl, Aquaman, and Amazo. A similar homage team was assembled for "The Terror Beyond". See more »

Goofs

Aquaman says he did the check in five moves, but he did it in four moves - as it should be, since it would have taken an even number. See more »

Quotes

Aquaman: I win again... huzzah.
Shayera Hol: It's just a game.

Very touching amid all the on-screen action
29 April 2007 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

Perhaps, the ratings for "Justice League" didn't go over the roof because the show's characters were more suited for baby boomers than for the younger set that is the prime demographic for The Cartoon Network where it aired.

That said, "Wake the Dead" is an exceptional episode that has enough action to satisfy the kids but has a poignancy in its story that can only appeal to the discriminating adult. Solomon Grundy, the zombie that has forever been one of Superman's main foes, is resurrected by three nerdy teens. Unfortunately, Grundy has been unearthed as an out-of-control mass of destruction, intent on doing harm to anyone and anything in his path.

Vixen, Green Lantern, and Superman try to subdue him but Grundy's power is too great, even for The Man of Steel. Meanwhile, Dr. Fate is aware of the happenings and brings Amazo, Aquaman, and the disgraced Hawkgirl to aid in subduing the marauding monster. Armed with her mace, enhanced by Fate's magic, Hawkgirl realizes that only she can bring down the giant by laying him to rest, as he is really seeking such.

In a touching finale, the Thanagarian eases Grundy's pain and all is right with the world.

As is the case with the series, the voice-over work and writing is excellent, with special kudos going to Maria Canals ("Hawkgirl"), Phil LaMar ("Green Lantern"), Robert Picardo ("Amazo"), and Oded Feher as the enigmatic "Dr. Fate."
