Trivia

The seven Justice Leaguers taking part in the parade represent The Seven Soldiers of Victory, a classic DC Comics team of the Golden Age. The first version of this team featured Shining Knight, Vigilante, the Star-Spangled Kid, Stripesy, Green Arrow, Speedy, and the Crimson Avenger. Stripesy would eventually become S.T.R.I.P.E., but since the Star-Spangled Kid has not been depicted in the DCAU, he is replaced here with the natural inclusion of Stargirl, who went by the name Star-Spangled Kid for a while in the comics.

Goofs

When Eiling approaches the crowd, the boy kneeling behind Shining Knight stands with arms outstretched to confront him about his hypocrisy, but then is kneeling in the same position again. See more »

S.T.R.I.P.E.: Eiling? From Cadmus?
John Stewart: What happened? That beat-down he handed you last year leave you with Superman issues?
General Wade Eiling: He's your poster-boy. I'm gonna show the Justice League that you're not the only superpower on the block. That there's someone who can stop you. I'm here to protect them

Superheroes as Underdogs
4 June 2008 | by tharrxSee all my reviews

This very entertaining episode features several rank & file Justice League members - none with any natural powers - forced to take on a Superman-level villain.

There is something endearing about these not-so-super superheroes trying to rise to the occasion. Everybody likes the idea of being "super," but when it comes down to brass tacks, there's no hero like an underdog.

Still, my favorite part of the episode is at the beginning, when they substitute for Superman at a parade. The assignment is humiliating, and the crowd's disappointment makes it worse still. Thank goodness the fast-talking western hero Vigilante gets his fellow heroes to show off a little!
