(at around 2 mins) Batman says the oversimplification process for Area 52 was too complicated, rendering it defunct and the entire project moved to Rebirth, New Jersey. This is a commentary on DC's prior attempt to make its books more reader-accessible through the New 52, which quickly got too complicated because of it's mixture of reboot/non-reboot material, and was scrapped to make way for their Rebirth line.

(at around 1h 14 mins) Erroneous attributes the character, Cyborg, as being created by "Mary Wolfman" and George Pérez, instead of Marv Wolfman and George Pérez. See more »
Green Lantern Jessica Cruz:
Okay, Jessica, keep it together. You got this! Hal needed an off-road vacay, and you're a Green Lantern. He asked you to cover his shift at the Hall of Justice, no biggie. You are calm, collected, and in control.

The LEGO mass production spews out a half-hearted adventure...
So why is it that I sat down to watch "LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman - Rage of Atlantis"? Well, on the sole reason that I have an 8 year old son who wanted to watch it.
This LEGO superhero movie didn't fare quite as well as some of the previous ones did.
Why? Well, first of all, Aquaman is sort of a bland superhero as superheroes go. And the storyline just wasn't particularly solidly crafted or constructed.
Sure it was nice to see Lobo here, but he could only do so much to salvage the movie.
The animation was top notch of course, as it always is in a LEGO produced animated movie. And the voice acting was great as well.
Even my 8 year old son whom loves both LEGO and superheroes actually fell asleep during the movie, so it just didn't have that magic touch to it.
I am tempted to say that this particular LEGO animated movie was build using the wrong bricks, or maybe even missing a brick or two to make it complete. I am sure that "LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman - Rage of Atlantis" will find appeal with some in the audience.
