* Are we supposed to be happy for Chay-Ara and Bashari's relationship? What's the lesson here? Spend time with your wife, or she will have an affair with another man? Katar didn't do anything bad, he was just a busy man. Bashari slept with his BEST FRIEND's wife. Let's put them in the real world. Would you root for a lonely wife for having an affair on a workaholic husband with his best friend?

[[folder: How does hawk girl get those sweatshirts on?]]
* ...you know, I've been watching this show regularly for something like five years now and I ''never'' considered that. Forget the shirts, which she could theoretically have brought from Thanagar or had specifically tailored, what about that dress she wore? She doesn't have the time to get somebody to produce a tailor-made dress that could fit around her wings on the short-notice of her date with Carter Hall, she just ''has it''. Sure, she looks great in it, but where did it come from?
** Actually the dress isn't a headscratcher at all. It's an ordinary dress with a back low enough that her wings aren't a problem. She can simply step into it and pull the straps up. Her original top wasn't a problem for this either. But think about her trying to put on those pull over sweatshirts with two huge wings in the way.
*** Given she starts wearing the sweatshirts after she betrays basically ''everybody'', my guess the sweatshirt is a form of penance. Since wings are largely just a different kind of arm, she could pull the shirt over her head and then force her wings through the hole(s) in the back. It'd stretch the sweatshirt and probably hurt a lot but how to take it ''off'' without destroying it is a mystery.

** If memory serves, when she reappeared in JLU (which is also when she started to wear sweatshirts) she was hanging out with Doctor Fate. So, maybe... [[AWizardDidIt you know]].

** Doomsday being a Cadmus creation was an obvious and sloppy retcon (in "A Better World" he quite obviously falls to Earth encased in some sort of asteroid, and there is absolutely no way that a rocket burning up in reentry can turn into an asteroid, not to mention that once he arrived he had no special interest in Superman beyond the fact that Lord Superman interrupted his rampage), so naturally there's a lot that doesn't make sense about him. Actually, the only way it makes sense is if Milo was ''lying'' to Doomsday about Cadmus having created him to be an anti-Superman weapon. If he was just a random super-strong alien that Cadmus brainwashed after Lord Superman lobotomized him, their lack of an effective countermeasure against Doomsday simply means they hadn't figured one out yet rather than them being stupid enough to ''create'' a weapon they couldn't stop.

*** Yeah, but they'd sent Shayera as an advanced scout. Why didn't ''she'' send the word that "Earth is full of aliens with powers, plus there's Green Lantern presence that might call the entire GL Corps for backup. But good news, those shape-shifting super-strong Martians went extinct a few years ago so we've got an empty planet where we could built our bypass and have it done before anybody even notices."

** They took a detour to the Watchtower to swap Kalibak with Manhunter before going to Granny. Kalibak may have even gone with the plan willingly since Granny's care would have been no different from Vundabar's.

* If anything, Galatea was left catatonic in a repentant Hamilton's care. She eventually regains consciousness, suffering from memory loss in the process, but eventually becomes the Powergirl of the DCAU.

* A couple reasons. First is that there were about a grand total of two people who could build something like Amazo. One died after creating it, and the other was not about use his brilliance for anyone's benefit besides himself. Second was that Amazo did not just copy powers but he also copied personality traits like Wally's flirtatious habits. This is important because Green Lantern rings don't just work for anyone. They 'choose' exceptionally brave individuals because willpower fortifies them. Without it, Green Lantern constructs are about as strong as wet tissue paper. Amazo duplicated whatever traits made John Stewart worthy of the power ring in addition of the ring itself. That's not to say Earth Specials Forces wouldn't have a deficit of bravery and will power but it would lead to the third reason: it would be stepping on the toes of the Guardians of the Universe. They are the ones who first developed the original Green Lantern Power Battery as well as the rings, and they were the ones who founded the Green Lantern Corps. It's not their policy to arm more than a handful of a given species and only justice minded individuals. One robot that copies their tech as a stepping stone in its own evolution is something for the Earth Lantern to handle. The Earth suddenly creating its own homemade lantern corps as a military force however is a Manhunter-like threat.

** In Dee's mind, it wasn't Luthor's fault, it was Justice League's. To twist the perspective: imagine that you spend years working hard to get into the (expanded) Justice League, only for some jerkass to come and dump you into prison for something you did as part of your plan to join the League. Would you be angry at the Justice League or the jerkass?

* In the episode "Ultimatium", where the Justice League meets the CaptainErsatz SuperFriends, Aquaman gets a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when the "WonderTwin" Downpour hits him with a few thousand gallons of water at full force. Aquaman shrugs and says: "King of the Seas, remember?". So how does Aquaman get the "super-sticky feet" power required to get hit with that much water and remain standing? I understand that he can understand a lot of water pressure on his body, but this was a force lateral to his center of gravity. If I were to smack Queen Elizabeth II with a lintel piece from Stonehenge, would she shrug it off saying: "Queen of England, remember?"? Or is it just RuleOfCool?
