Justice League on Smallville TONIGHT

BlankspaceBlankspace __BANNED USERS regular
edited January 2007 in Graphic Violence
Normally Smallville isn't one of my "must-watch" shows but with the recent Green Arrow saga It's been pretty good. Tonight however looks to be the most badass episode yet.

To take down Luthor's secret Lab, Clark teams up with all the heroes who appeared on his show in earlier episodes to form a "Justice League". The heroes are Flash, Aquaman, Green Arrow and Cyborg.

You can watch the first 12 minutes here:
First 12 minutes.

From the preview, they at least got the Flash perfect.

It airs at 7 PM(Central).

    I'm not a big Smallville fa, but I catch a few episodes here and there if they don't seem to emo or silly. This episode looks like it will be cool, though.

    Anyone else watch it?

    They nailed Impulse(Not Flash after all), and Ollie. Cyborg was good but Aquaman was kinda meh.

    Pros
    -Bart having the hyper-fast metabolism, hijinks ensue.
    -All around quipiness
    -The different powers of the different members were handled greatly.
    -Boy Scout and Watchtower.
    Cons
    -The goddamn "Badass walk towards the camera away from an explosion" bit.
    -Cyborg's costume.
    -The Ollie/Lois bit near the end.

    Sars_Boy, I didn't forget about the Young Justice picture I owe you

    it's just that I'm not that good at full anatomy and I'm taking a figure drawing class that helps out a lot, so it may be a little while

    Although I do have an idea for a picture

    It's from the afformentioned horrible explosion scene. Bart's the one on the far left, his hoodie has a big Flash lightning bolt on the back.

    I saw the first Flash episode and kind of liked it.

    [spoiler:b3f70c33b4]And then I saw Veronica Mars Season 2, wherein the character he plays is revealed to be a rapist and a murderous psychopath.[/spoiler:b3f70c33b4]

    So that's probably what I'm gonna think of whenever I see him, from now on.

    So did Cyborg actually have any cyborg parts?
    From the picture, he just looks like he's got really bad fashion sense, which isn't much of a superpower even though it is shared by just about everyone who wears a cape.

    I don't actually watch the show though. I tried in the past, and quickly came to the conclusion that it just wasn't for me.

    Walking away from an explosion was cool for about 15 seconds back in the 80's. That being said the picture provided would still have sucked back then.

    They're all wearing outfits with colors that correspond to the costumes the characters wear in the comics.

    So were aquaman's powers the same as in the comics? I mean, is he from atlantis and all that?

    Also what I'm really asking is: was he useless except for one silly plot point that involved water?

    I didn't know it was a touchy subject. I didn't know anyone liked him. Of course, I base most of my dc opinions on the old justice friends cartoon, so I could be a little bit off.

    Edit: Furthermore, I was wondering how he would be useful breaking into an evil labratory. Above water.

    AQUAMAN,
    KING OF THE SEVEN SEAS,
    HAS FUCKING HAD IT
    WITH YOU, MAN.
    BY GLEN WELDON

    - - - -

    First off, I don't talk to them. OK?

    That's, like, the first thing. Let's start there.

    It's not like I'm all, Hey, Peter Pufferfish, what's up? and he's all, Yo, nothing much, brah.

    It doesn't work like that, all right? I mean, most of them don't even have brains, for one thing. They have maybe a bump at one end of their spinal cord, a pimply little swelling of ganglia, if they're lucky.

    Language is not a looming issue, is what I'm saying.

    No, how it works is: I command them. Period, the end. Command, as in bend them to, you know, my will and whatnot. Fuckin' A.

    Even the ones with actual for-real brains, the cetaceans. If I want, you know, a pod of Burmeister's porpoise to ram the hell out of Black Manta's Manta Sub, that shit gets done. If I totally want, like, a southern minke whale to go hump a giant squid (its most hated enemy, by the way), I just go doodoodoodoodoodoo and it's like Show World down there. Not that I would, because, you know, gross, but I'm just saying: I don't ask. I'm not going to be all, If you wouldn't mind terribly much, please, Mr. Southern Minke Whale, go get your nasty freak on with that giant squid.

    Just, you know, FYI.

    And it's not training. I read that on some blog: "He just trains them to do all that."

    Dude, I can get 6 million krill to gunk up the engine of a getaway ship by having them hurl themselves up the intake jets. Mass sea-monkey suicide. OK? Try that shit with operant conditioning, with some big-titted blondie waggling a smelt, see what you get. Think they're meting out kick-ass sea justice over at Epcot? Shyeah.

    But everyone takes their shot. Fucking YouTube and shit. Cartoon Network. Suddenly every hacky comic's got a tight five-minute chunk on lame old Aquaman. "Haw haw haw, he's so laaaaame, hee hee hee, go talk to a guppy!"

    It's all good. Somehow I manage to suffer through it. I soldier bravely the fuck on, comforted only by the small but telling fact that I'm absolute goddamn ruler of—what was it again?—oh, yeah: the EARTH.

    The PLANET.

    And you, you're, like, star of open-mike night at the Mirth Shack in Jacksonville. And your MySpace blog? OMG! ROTFLMAO!

    You used to be cool, man.

    When you were a kid, you'd sit at the bottom of the Stupaks' pool, remember? Used to sit there and pretend the kickboard between your knees was Storm the Giant Seahorse, and you'd stay under for as long as you could, going doodoodoodoodoodoo.

    Remember there was that orange T-shirt you had? Remember that? That was cool.

    You sure seemed like a happy little kid.

    But, you know, I get it. Whatever, that was a long time ago. Now you're all, Wonder Woman never even let him fly her plaaaane, and whatnot. And that's, you know, fine.

    I could command you. You, those Robot Chicken assholes, alla y'all. Command you all to, you know, quit it.

    I don't make, like, a big deal about that, but I could. You're just a fish at heart, dude. Down deep in your forebrain. I fuckin' could.

    But I won't. That's not how I roll. I'm a hero. Plus, I'm King of the Seven Seas, so, you know, I got shit to do, right?

    No, it's fine. You rock on with your bad self, dude. Mazel tov.

    Seriously, though, leave my lady out of it. That's not cool, man. Mera, she doesn't get it like I do. She's sensitive. I start hearing you talking shit about her, or her hard-water powers, or that time she turned evil, and I will fuck your shit up. Count on it.

    No. Just No.

    First of all - nailed Ollie? Really? The Black Canary nailed Ollie. These ponces put some Nivea for men motherfucker in a pair of Oaklies and called him the Green Arrow. I've got a potted cactus that I call Col. Sanders, but I don't see it whipping up any chicken or gravy.

    I am tempted to bring up that Cyborg was never in the League, but I'll leave it alone, as that plainly is not good old Vic Stone. Smallville has always been terrible, but this is really pushing it. At this rate, it'll suck more ass than Lois & Clark ever did by the end of the month. I wish they'd just get Beppo the super-monkey and Streaky the super-cat in there and call it good.

    Years ago, I heard they were planning on having underwear model Kent have a run-in with a young Bruce Wayne. And perhaps a hunk of dreamsicle Kryptonite. Did anything ever come of this?

    Seriously, Superman deserves better.
