Just watched JL Fetal Five who wants to discuss!?

That was one of the best animated movies I’ve ever seen. But let down on ending… Lets leave all that alone for now and also no spoilers ahead All the nodes and Easter eggs. First rebirth character in DCAU. Strong female Leads. Multiple. Actual character development of already familiar characters. Emotionally thrilling and equally heart pulling. Nostalgic voice over work that gave me back my childhood justice league. Theme music and sound cues OMG. And the animation was not only nostalgic but absolutely stunning in parts and verging on psychedelic in others. It’s a must own. Come at me. Hashtag five stars…Fatal Five Stars.

I agree, actually. It feels to me as if DC’s animated movies struggled between 2012-2017 when there wasn’t much great and a lot of crap, but they’ve been on the upswing again recently. I loved seeing another story in the DCAU and the focus on Limelight.

Decent movie. Batman vs TMNT was better.

The Fetal Five would be either the best or worst villain group ever. I’m thinking a group of sinister fetuses with psychic powers who have to be hunted down before they’re born so they can be contained.

Enjoyed it for the most part. Loved the JL cartoon animation used and the new/old characters. I was somewhat disappointed in the story and some of the out place violence used in the film, but it was a nice throwback. Would definitely watch more films in the JL and JL: Unlimited universe, or even revived cartoon on DC Universe maybe :wink:

The heroes against the fetal five would be called Prochoice and Coat Hanger Lass. What would you like to see if the did a final season of Justice League Unlimited? Hey BatWatch thanks for the awesome comment.

If you like the Fatal Five check out silver age Legion of the Superheroes.

BwanaBeastguy I’m super glad it made you laugh. Thanks for the recommendation I love it. Why does silver age Brainiac 5 look like Conner Kent and the one in Fatal Five look like Lex? Haha

loved it

I don’t think this is actually DCAU cannon, since we didn’t see any mention of Supergirl in the future. Still, great movie. Really enjoyed this one.

Yeah, it was great. I love how they had Ms. Martian as a lead character and had her join up with the league, it’s nice to see continuation of characters that were introduced awhile back but never really given the same clout as the core group. Love seeing Conroy and Newbern back, tara strong was Saturn girl too and she’s cool. I liked the green lantern story being central to the plot, it makes me want to see more of what happened between the present and star boys time that made the green lanterns light dim.

I’d love to see them revive the old justice league for a full on season like with young justice but honestly I’m surprised they’re even still using the same voice actors it’s been so long. I know they now have multiple voice over actors for multiple projects which makes it cool to come across one of these with the old school cast.

So they can show up for his funeral but not further back in time to prevent his death?

:flushed: That is one helluva typo up there.
