Magma from the Terrific Trio. Gotham gets some extra help in the form of The Terrific Trio, three scientists with superpowers gained from a radiation accident, now fighting crime with full government backing. Alas, behind the scenes, things aren't as terrific as they seem. Spoof on the Fantastic Four...Magma...
From "Kid Stuff" written and directed by my friends Henry Gilroy and Joaquim Dos Santos. When Mordred banishes all adults into Limbo, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern must make a deal with his mother Morgaine to transform into 8-year-olds in a desperate attempt to defeat the boy-wizard. Here are some of the foes Mordred creates to fight the Justice League.

Based on a Mike Mignola's rough from the Herculoid Zok,
I redesign him to become a demon for a Justice League episode.
Zok, (voiced by Mike Road), a flying dragon. He emits laser beams from his eyes and tail. His eyes also produced a "nega-beam" that could neutralize certain energy attacks. Zok could survive in space unaided, was capable of interstellar travel, and could breathe fire.
Giant space creature for Brainiac Attacks. I wish I knew the writing was going to be so horrible. I heard they decided to use a script that was submitted as a tryout for the Superman TV series and got rejected. Jezz I wonder why? From the script to using different actors for the voices, don't get me going please...
Regardless of my brutal honest professional opinion it was nice working on another Superman story after all.
I was asked to design some statues for a background in a Justice League episode featuring Vandal Savage.
I based the designs from real statues at the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires Argentina.
And Vandal Savage for those who doesn't know him... in prehistoric times, a meteorite struck near two cro-magnon tribesmen, Klarn and Vandar Adg (Vandal Savage), bathing them in radiation. Vandal became immortal, free to exercise his dark desires for an eternity, while Klarn was to be reincarnated over and over to fight evil as the Immortal Man (not to be confused with Resurrection Man).
An old Marine friend of John Stewart, Rex Mason finds himself turned into a freaky looking guy named Metamorpho with powers to change his very molecular structure. Rex's boss and future father-in-law is the bad guy responsible for his metamorphosis. Metamorpho aids the Justice League in the end against a giant monster that even Superman can't handle alone.
The story starts out with Superman and the other members of the Justice League storming the White House where Superman uses deadly force to defeat the President of the United States - Lex Luthor using his heat vision. This is shown later in the story to be an alternate world. A world where the League goes down the wrong path in part because of the death of the Flash.
The real League is tricked into coming into this alternate world by the alternate Justice Lords. They are captured, while the Justice Lords turn to the Justice League's Earth to rule it. Doomsday makes an appearance fighting the Justice Lords to a standstill. Awesome fight scenes here. The only gripe I have is when the alternate Hawk Girl get's uppercut by Doomsday hundreds of feet into the air that should have been all she wrote, but instead she's right back on her feet in the next scene. Hawk Girl is seen as way to powerful in some episodes and this one was definitely an example. The only power she really has is wings and a magic mace. Since when can she take a punch from Doomsday? Besides this discrepancy, the scenes of the alternate Superman fighting Doomsday are awesome. One scene has them hitting each other at the same time causing a shock wave that destroys windows in a nearby skyscraper and almost knocks a helicopter for a loop. Now that's worthy of a movie scene. Almost defeated the alternate Superman uses his heat vision to lobotomize Doomsday.
I like this episode better than the latest Doomsday dvd released by WB.
Here is the Captain from the Cat People spaceship.
I'm not sure but I think this is from an episode where Green Lantern is on trial in an outerspace court for the destruction of an entire world. Worse John Stewart the Lantern thinks he is guilty. While the Flash tries to play lawyer and defend him the rest of the League investigate. This episode features the Manhunters, the Green Lantern Corp, Guardians of the Universe and the Cat People (alien race made up for the beginning of this episode).
I never liked what the producers did with Hawkgirl in the JLU cartoon universe.
The whole love affair thing with GL was kind of unnecessary, besides it didn't have anything to do with the comics. And what about Hawkman?
If you ask me, I think whoever was responsible for that worked themselves into a dead end with those two episodes about Carter Hall, trying to make sense out of their own creation. Sometimes the whole "alternative" or "parallel" universe thing could be an easy way out from being faithful to the original comic book, and perhaps fans like myself may have a more difficult time liking it.
I even started to dislike the character after what they did with it. I was very happy to design a model of Hawkgirl being electrocuted for an episode.
