Quotes

Guy Gardner: [On relationships and super-heroics] Every time I get to the point where I might be able to commit to a woman, somthing happens and takes that opportunity away. And they don't understand. It's very hard for me to get through to them that I have obligations, ya know, I have to save people. But, how do you tell them that?

BAH!
11 January 1999 | by Owen-30See all my reviews

BAH! This was HORRIBLE! I bought a bootleg at a local comicon

and man it was bad!! I am a big JLA fan, and a Twin Peaks fan

also (Miguel Ferrer who plays Dr. Eno in this was Albert

Rosenfield in Twin Peaks) but this was bad. Allow me to point

out a few things:

-Green Lantern: First off, his uniform was bad. His mask looks

like a viewfinder! And the rest of his costume..guh! Also, Guy

Garnder has not been Green Lantern since like 1996, I think. He

is now called Warrior. The current Green Lantern (and when that

was made) is Kyle Rayner.

-The Flash: The Flash of the time was Wally West. Not out of

work. Nephew of forensic scientist Barry Allen (nothing like the

out of work bum depicted in the pilot). He, like GL, is in the

current League, though.

-The Atom: A secondary character. He does not have his own

series (in comics) and is not in the JLA. In other words, his

lack of popularity (along with that of Fire's, Ice's, and

Martian Manhunter's) is one reason probably why this series

flopped. His costume and powers were incredibly fake. Honestly,

Warner Brothers could have afforded better!

-Fire: An out of work actress? Not the Fire in the comic series.

She's Spanish or Mexican, something like that, has green hair

and other features that make her different from the Fire

portrayed by Michelle Hurd. Also, her costume is much, much

different. She's not in the current JLA, and has not been since

'96

-Ice: We don't get to see her costume (except at the end

credits) but it's bad. First, TORA (as she's named in the

comics) Olafsdatter is dead. A new one, with light blue skin,

but retired in '96 in a near-fatal spaceship crash.

-Martian Manhunter: Though one of the oldest and more powerful

superheroes, Manhunter is not too popular and only just got his

own series in late '98. He is part of the current JLA, but the

portrayal in the pilot was BAD.

-Dialogue: What can I say? It's hokey. Stupid. Honestly, it

could've been much, much better. Had there been any plot, the

dialogue might have improved. Also, more semblance to the

comics would've helped.

-Graphics: Bleach. This was made in '97. Star Trek: The Next

Generation's last three seasons (1991-1993) had much better

graphics than this and they were probably harder to do. Green

Lantern's ring, Flash's speed, Atom's shrinking, Fire's fire,

etc., etc. They all suck. Warner Bros. could probably afford

better.

-Other things: the series would've done much better if primary

characters (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc.) had been used.

Many, many people only know the three I listed. If these three

could've attracted more viewers to the show (or at least if that

was projected) the series might've aired.

In conclusion: it was a $15
