Barry Allen: I mean, also though, he's very wise about fathering us and choosing, and human instincts and stuff. I get alot from him.
B.B. DaCosta: Haven't you felt like you appreciate more of the things that we have for us here in this, in our world?
Guy Gardner: [Interrupting] And you know, he's green!

The worst super-hero adaptation ever!
16 October 1998 | by Dew1969See all my reviews

Not only was this filmed on a shoe-string budget with cheap costumes and special effects, it betrays both comic book fans and movie buffs equally.

The JLA characterizations are horrible. To catalog all of the mistakes would take more time than this awful show is worth. Just to name one good example: a couple of characters (Fire and Guy Gardner) who actually hate each other in the comics were said to have dated previously.

It appears that somebody tried to fool the audience into thinking they had seen a more exciting show than they really had: major action sequences were never shown but instead reported (sans footage) by the evening news.
