Mark Hamill goes four-for-four in the new Justice League Action animated short. Hamill not only voices himself, both the villains who abduct him for ransom, but also the hero who steps in to foil the plot (with a little help from the voice actor). With Hamill reprising his roles as both the Joker and the Trickster, the aptly-named “Missing the Mark” actually hits the bullseye. Well played, Mr. Hamill. Well played.

“Harley Goes Ape!” works in a bit of Harley Quinn‘s (Tara Strong) backstory while giving us one of the more obscure villains in the DCU. Grodd‘s (David Sobolov) latest attack involves him taking control of Titano (a chimpanzee space pilot transformed into a giant monkey capable of shooting Kryptonite beams of his eyes… no, seriously!). While Superman (Jason J. Lewis) is relatively helpless to stop the beast it falls on Stargirl (Natalie Lander) with the unlikely assistance of Harley Quinn to save the day. Harley, who knew the chimp back before his transformation, proves to be the key into giving the heroes enough time to break Grodd’s hold. And Stargirl’s quick thinking helps save Titano from some pissed-off cops looking to take the creature down for all the damage Titano unknowingly caused while under Grodd’s control.

Justice League of America #1 comic reviewLogically, Justice League of America #1 makes about as much sense as the plot to the Oscar-winning Suicide Squad. This isn’t the first time Batman has assembled his own team (although events concerning his role in the Outsiders are still a bit fuzzy after the Rebirth reboot). Believing the Earth needs a new super-team to fight the DCU’s larger threats, Batman cobbles together one hell of a bizarre looking group. Longtime Justice League mainstays such as Black Canary and Vixen are givens. And the Ray and Ryan Choi certainly make sense. But the former super-villain Killer Frost? And the uncontrollable galactic bounty hunter Lobo? Just what is Batman thinking?

suicide-squad-vs-justice-league-1-fight

DC Comics’ first big crossover following the Rebirth reboot pits the Justice League against the Suicide Squad when Batman fills in the rest of the League about Amanda Waller‘s private army of mercenary super-villains. When the Squad’s latest mission in Badhnisia goes bad the Justice League shows up (not realizing that the Squad will quite literally have to fight for their lives to prevent Waller from murdering them all by detonating the explosives at the base of each of their skulls).

lego-justice-league-gotham-city-breakoutAnother lukewarm entry to the LEGO DC Super Heroes line, Justice League: Gotham City Breakout features two separate stories. First, Nightwing (Will Friedle) and Batgirl (Sarah Hyland) convince Batman (Troy Baker) to finally take a vacation leaving Gotham City in the hands of Superman (Nolan North). The trip to visit his old teacher Madame Mantis (Amy Hill) unveils a plot by Deathstroke (John DiMaggio) and Bane (Eric Bauza) to use a normally peaceful underground tribe to take over the world. While providing its moments, the adventure begins to drag during its second-half.

The other storyline features Superman having more trouble with the super-villains of Gotham City than he expected. Tricked by the Joker (Jason Spisak), Superman accidentally causes a break-out at Arkham Asylum. Even calling on the help of Cyborg (Khary Payton) and Wonder Woman (Grey Griffin), the heroes struggle to stop the chaos eventually allowing Robin (Scott Menville) to show them what crime-fighting in Gotham is all about.

justice-league-vs-teen-titans-blu-rayThe latest home video release further exploring the characters and world introduced in Son of Batman sends the uncompromising Damian Wayne (Stuart Allan) to the Teen Titans in hopes that Robin may be able to learn teamwork and trust. Borrowing a little from Damien’s time with the Teen Titans prior to the New 52 reboot, writers Bryan Q. Miller and Alan Burnett choose to give their spin on a more classic Trigon (Jon Bernthal) story. As with the previous movies, the story lacks the Robin/Red Robin rivalry from the comics, but certainly entertains.

With both heroes and villains being possessed by a demon threatening to break into their world, Raven (Taissa Farmiga) reveals the truth about herself and her father to her teammates Beast Boy (Brandon Soo Hoo), Blue Beetle (Jake T. Austin), and Starfire (Kari Wahlgren). When Raven is captured and multiple members of the Justice League are possessed by Trigon it falls on Robin and the Teen Titans to save the day.
