Storyline

A man named Sylvester Pemberton tracks down Chloe and tells her he knows about her team of superheroes and needs their help. However, before he can explain who he is, he is attacked and killed by Icicle. Clark and Chloe's investigation leads Clark to the former headquarters of the Justice Society of America, an underground team of superheros, where he meets up with Nelson (AKA: Dr. Fate), Carter Hall (AKA: Hawkman) and Courtney (AKA: Star Girl). Courtney pleads with Hawkman and Dr. Fate to help her catch the killer that is targeting their group but they are reluctant to resume their duties as superheroes. Clark, John Jones, Green Arrow and Chloe team up to help the JSA stop Icicle before he murders another member of the group. Meanwhile, Lois receives a package from a mysterious agency called Checkmate, run by the shadowy Amanda Waller. Written by CW Publicity

Trivia

John Jones (aka Martian Manhunter) remarks to Oliver that they did not have dessert on Mars, but since being on Earth, he has developed a fondness for cookies. This is another nod to the fact that in the comics, the Martian Manhunter is quite partial to Oreo cookies. See more »

Quotes

Carter Hall: All we want is justice.
Oliver Queen: Justice? Well, everything we've heard about you guys is a little blurry when it comes to justice.
Courtney Whitmore: You mean what you've *read*.
Oliver Queen: Do you know who you're working with here? These old men have criminal records longer than that staff of yours.
Courtney Whitmore: They made those up.
Carter Hall: It's none of their business.
John Jones: With all due respect, we're making it our business. Even when I had the power to leave Earth, I chose not to. For one reason - Hope. Hope for the future. Humanity's capacity for violence ...

Satisfying Buffet of Hero's
13 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bring on the buffet of super hero's.

This was one of the better episodes of the season, and it had a more sustainable and independent story line than the other Zod-esquire episodes.

I love Dr. Fate - he is the wise of the old, the Martian Manhunter of the elders. Hawkman's character was also well played.

I wish they would have included a few marquee players in this episode (Batman, Wonder woman, Flash). But I do understand the rights and legalities involved - so it was in all likely hood a challenge just to get the ones they did have.

The only complaint I have is using the Iceman-dude as the villain. Stupid. Why use that actor too? Was he Tom Wellings friend? How did the metro sexual guy with the lisp get that part? The fight sequence between Stargirl and Iceman was poorly choreographed as well - so was that particular dialogue.

Oh well - keeping in mind, it is CW and resources are limited. How about NBC? I heard they need a few more quality shows.

Anyway, good episode - and like I said - it stands alone, so you don't need to have background of the season in order to enjoy.

8.5/10.00. - (-2.5) for using that weird actor as the iceguy.
