Justice League Unlimited: Originally, the seven most powerful superheroes, the team recruited 30+ members into their team. On screen however, they where just known as The Justice League.

The Show: The series Justice League premiered in 2001, while other DCAU shows such as The Zeta Project and Static Shock had been still airing. The series started off with "Secret Origins" which was a three part TV movie. It was produced by the same minds behind Batman The Animated Series, Superman, Batman Gotham Knights, Batman Beyond, Static Shock, and The Zeta Project.

Season one settled the origin of the team. In the first episode, Batman and Superman banded together to stop an alien invasion. After freeing the last surviving Martian, and escaping from the aliens, they met four other superheroes – Hawkgirl, the Green Lantern, the Flash and Wonder Woman. After they took down the aliens, Superman decided that they should all stay as a force for good. This season didn't feature deep character development, unlike future seasons.

Season two had the Justice League going head to head with bigger and bolder threats. In one episode, the League traveled to an alternate reality where they fought their evil counterparts. It also had a great season finale which featured a Thanagarian invasion. Due to the events of this finale, Hawkgirl was compelled to quit the League.

Season three was renamed Justice League Unlimited. The Justice League now had a new Watchtower, new Javelins, and a new roster. The original plan for the third and subsequent seasons was to have one core member leading a team of two or three new members on a mission.

Season four brought the conclusion of the Cadmus arc that brew in the former seasons. The season ended with a revelation that would change Terry McGinnis and Bruce's relationship forever. This season was meant to be the final one, but Cartoon Network called for a whole other season.

In season five, the Justice League had to face Gorilla Grodd's new Secret Society (also known as The Legion of Doom off screen.) Almost every villain the League ever faced was in this Society. At one point, Lex Luthor takes over control of the organization and uses its resources to try to free Brainiac, so that he can have ultimate knowledge again. This season is going to be the last season as the network decided to not renew the series for a sixth season.

Justice League Unlimited was about a group of super heroes called the Justice League that fought crime and kept the world safe. As they went on, one of their teammates betrayed them and left the team. After that incident, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern, and Flash decided to re create the Justice League bringing in hundreds of other members like Wildcat, Black Canary, and Zantanna.

5x13: Destroyer (2) recap: The Justice League escorts Lex Luthor and his remaining villain allies into the Hall of Justice and wonders how they survived the explosion. Lex explains that Sinestro created a power ring bubble around the piece of debris they took shelter on. An inhabitant of New Genesis noticed the explosion and came to investigate, and they knocked him out and took his Mother Box. Lex wants Brainiac back after Darkseid took it from him, but the other villains note that Darkseid plans to conquer Earth and want to help. The heroes plan to take them into custody but they're interrupted when Mr. Terrific on the Watchtower notifies them that boom tubes are opening up above major cities across the Earth. Darkseid's invasion force of parademons arrives and Mr. Terrific alerts all Justice League members of an Omega level alert. They engage emergency teleporters and teams of heroes begin to beam down to Earth... read more.

Tala goes in and advises him to stop, but the experiment ends in failure. Luthor goes berserk and snaps at Tala, who offers to use sorcery to prove it's useless. Luthor realizes that magic may provide the key and orders her to proceed. Tala casts a spell and shows Lex a vision of Brainiac before his destruction, ejecting a piece of himself into space. Tala collapses but Luthor determines where the explosion occurred. He tries to track it despite Tala's efforts to convince him to focus on ruling Earth, then shoves her aside and promises he'll become a god again... read more.
