* CanonForeigner: Aside from the love interests for the heroes, the BigBad of the pilot was called the Weather Man, who is not a known DCComics villain. However, this character might have been an {{Expy}} of the '''Weather Wizard''', an old ''ComicBook/TheFlash'' rogue.

** Ice/Tora (Tori for the film) is depicted as a meek, clumsy meteorologist student, whose powers only manifest fully at the very end of the film, and she seems to need physical contact with an object in order to make them work. Her comic book self was a member of a group of Romani Travellers who had a history of being able to bend the natural elements to their will, could project her powers from a distance and use them to create ice-based constructs and was also a capable hand-to-hand combatant.

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: J'onn, the MartianManhunter, only uses his powers a few times but each time, it's a completely different power that just so happens to help the plot along. This is not completely unlike his comic counterpart, however, who has many abilities.

The TV movie never aired in the United States, despite being commissioned and produced by Creator/{{CBS}} as a PilotMovie for an eventual television series. However, [[ShortRunInPeru it was shown in other countries]] (notably Channel 5 in the United Kingdom), which is why [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes bootlegs circulate at conventions]]. Many claim it's SoBadItsGood. The cheesey but comic-accurate outfits led to Website/{{Cracked}} citing the movie as a major example of why the MovieSuperheroesWearBlack and NotWearingTights tropes are so prominent in live-action comic book adaptations.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: The entire Justice League are significantly less powerful than their comic book incarnations. They're even less impressive when comparing their civilian personas as well.
** The Flash/Barry Allen is constantly unemployed, and cites his only useful ability as being able to run really fast. Barry in the comics was a forensic scientist for his city's police department, and his SuperSpeed granted him a far greater range of abilities and applications.
** Green Lantern/Guy Gardner is a smooth talking software salesman, with no hint of the troubled past the comic book Gardner endured. As Green Lantern, he is incapable of flying under his own willpower, requiring a ring construct (in the shape of a propeller) in order to levitate himself, and his other constructs are much less imaginative and weaker than what Green Lanterns are typically capable.
** The Atom/Ray Palmer's shrinking abilities are played almost entirely for laughs, and he does not appear to retain his natural strength in the process. His appearance as Ray Palmer is also far more stereotypically nerdy and awkward looking, with glasses, goofy hair and overly neat bow tie clothing.
** Fire/Beatriz (B.B. in the film) probably gets off the easiest for her superhero self. She can still fly and shoot heat from her hands, but in a much more mundane fashion and she doesn't turn into a being comprised of green flame like in the comics. For her civilian self, she's an actress with a less than promising career. Whereas her comic book counterpart ran her own successful business, had a noted modelling career and even operated as an effective government agent for a time.
** Ice/Tora (Tori for the film) is depicted as a meek, clumsy meteorologist student, whose powers only manifest fully at the very end of the film, and she seems to need physical contact with an object in order to make them work. Her comic book self was a member of a group of Romani Travellers who had a history of being able to bend the natural elements to their will, could project her powers from a distance and use them to create ice-based constructs and was also a capable hand-to-hand combatant.
** The Martian Manhunter/J'onn J'onzz never assists the group in the field, only leaving their headquarters when he's needed to use his shapeshifting to impersonate someone else, and the film implies he can only do so for so long before the disguise fails and he reverts back. The vast majority of his other abilities are virtually entirely ignored.

* WesternTerrorist: The Weather Man looks and sounds like a generic terrorist. He threatens the city via video wearing a bandana and shades, often spouting vaguely anarchistic slogans such as [[AnarchyIsChaos "I will upset the status quo!"]].
