Did You Know?


The character "Black Lightning" from the DC Nation short "Thunder & Lightning" was intended to be a member of the Justice League, but was removed from the character line-up. Producer Giancarlo Volpe had intended to have Black Lightning and his daughters appear in civilian clothes as if on vacation during the Hawaiian volcano scene, but dropped the idea because it didn't make sense that Black Lightning would be standing around watching the disaster and not doing anything.

Karate Kid: The greatest super-villain of all-time? More like Lex Loser.

Awesome for little kids
14 May 2015 | by vjaegaSee all my reviews

I've been trying to find something my preschooler and toddler could watch. They like superheroes but none of the cartoons which are available on disc these days are appropriate for them. This was in my opinion, an excellent, clean way to introduce them to the DC universe and have a basic idea of the Character's abilities. My 4 and 2 yr old boys watch it all the time. Im grateful that it doesn't have be-headings or sexually suggestive content, because honestly there is enough material out there for the more hardcore comic book fans this isn't for them. It's for kids. Let it go. When you become a parent, then you'll understand why JLA trapped in time is a great little movie for them.
