Justice League Unlimited: The Doomsday Sanction

A vengeful Cadmus employee unleashes Doomsday to get revenge on Amanda Waller, only to have his plan go awry.

Amanda Waller wakes up at 4:30 and checks her security systems. She then pours herself coffee and listens to the news as it reports a volcanic eruption on the Caribbean island of San Baquero. Waller calls for a car to go to her meeting, while the news talks about Luthor's announcement of a Presidential run as an independent. She then takes a shower and finds Batman waiting for her. Once she gets dressed, Batman reviews her history and Waller notes that she can find out his history if she wants. He dares her to do it, and asks what she's doing. Waller informs him that Superman had to tell the government about their battle against the Justice Lords to get Luthor's pardon. The government worried that the Justice League might go the same route as the Justice Lords, so she ran computer simulations and determined that the Justice League could win. They created Cadmus to produce the technology to defend themselves. When Batman warns her that he'll take her down if she threatens the world, Waller notes that the Justice League is the group with an energy cannon in orbit, and Cadmus are the good guys. Batman turns and goes, and a nervous Waller activates a security alert...

Episode Quotes
Flash: (The Justice Lords) went overboard because their Flash died. So as long as you all focus on keeping me alive, that'll never happen here.
(long silence from the team)
J'onn: Lets put a pin in that theory to explore another time.

Waller: Dr. Milo - I'm not known for my sense of humor, but I know a sick joke when I see one.

Waller: Milo! I'll have his hide for this.
Security Guard: Doomsday beat you to it, ma'am.

Doomsday: Superman. I'm here to kill you. Is this a bad time?

Superman: I know who you are. But I'm not the one who hurt you.
Doomsday: Superman is Superman. And I will kill you.
Superman: Why?
Doomsday: It's what I am--I don't care why.

Superman: You don't owe anything to them. They manipulated you and then tried to kill you.
Doomsday: So I keep hearing.

Batman: What would stop you from doing what that Superman did?
Superman: There's always that kryptonite you carry around.
Batman: You don't get to joke! Not today! I just took a bullet for you.
