“DC Super-Villains – Justice League: Masterminds of Crime” DVD Compilation Announced
on June 26, 2014
The hit cartoon shows Justice League and Justice League Unlimited still seem to be very profitable for Warner Bros. to continue milking. I don’t have a problem with that, however. After all, Justice League is my favorite cartoon show.
On October 7th, 2014, Warner Home Video will release the DC Super-Villains – Justice League: Masterminds of Crime DVD compilation, which collects thirteen classic episodes from Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Batman Beyond. It will retail for $19.97. Of special interest to Green Lantern John Stewart fans are the episodes “Hearts and Minds,” “Secret Society,” and “The Return.” Actually, the entire first disc looks like a big celebration of Green Lantern John Stewart, seeing as how “Hearts and Minds” is one of the strongest appearances from the character EVER, and “Secret Society” showcases him leading the Justice League in their battle against Gorilla Grodd’s gang of evil-doers. “The Return” is a proud showing for John and the Green Lantern Corps.
This package is definitely worth picking up for fans of Green Lantern John Stewart who don’t already have these episodes in a collection, and those completist collectors out there have another cool item to add to their repertoire. The official synopsis is as follows:
A collection of bad guys who are powerful and audacious enough to challenge the Justice League. These villains are not just threats to one super team, but the entire DC Universe! Featuring super villains from Lex Luthor, Sinestro to Darkseid.
And lastly, the episode list:
1. Tabula Rasa, Part 1
2. Tabula Rasa, Part 2
3. Hearts and Minds, Part 1
4. Hearts and Minds, Part 2
5. Secret Society, Part 1
6. Secret Society, Part 2
7. The Return,
8. Divided We Fall
9. I am Legion
10. Dead Reckoning
11. The Great Brain Robbery
12. The Call, Part 1
13. The Call, Part 2
Last time one of these sorts of collections was released, I posted a superbly written Justice League fanfic in “Oa, By the Way…” to celebrate. That story was about Green Lantern and Hawkgirl being stranded on the garbage planet they happened across in their “War World” adventure. It is a fanfic I can’t recommend enough, which is not something I often do for fanfics unless specifically asked.
This time, I’m going to do something extremely similar and post another “War World” fanfic featuring Hawkgirl and Green Lantern called “Moments,” written by DescendingFrost.
This fic is a sort of novelization of Hawkgirl and Green Lantern’s parts in the episode with an additional prologue leading up to the events fans are familiar with. If you’re feeling like going back and revisiting one of the most classic Green Lantern and Hawkgirl stories, this is a fun way to do it.
