Like all things on this hurtling sphere, I emerged from the molten center of creation. But mine has been a unique path. Isolated, I developed attributes beyond those of lesser beings.

This was one of the worst comic based cartoons or animated features that I have ever had the displeasure of watching.
It was as if the hack of a writer knew little of the characters and had even less interest in them, and worked by ticking off marks on a checklist for plot points.
This uninspired dreck has the Superman problem solved by this blob monster smacking Supes so hard he is knocked off of the storyboard very early, and he does not return until very late.
"See? We get Supes out of the way here-real quick- then the others will have something to do here!" How convenient that a being so powerful can't manage to knock any other hero out of the storyline.
The tentacled mess of a villain mostly hovers around, flailing about as if waiting for these 1 dimensional heroes to finally do something- anything.
It almost actually goes somewhere, or looks as if something is really going to happen once or twice, only to go right back to that weak but monumentally important formulaic checklist in their battle of one of the stupidest menaces ever contrived.
Justice League/Unlimited=10. This lame, uninspired disappointment gets a 1.
