->''"My actions don't require any defense. In the same situation, I'd do it again. [...] As individuals, and even more so as a group, the Justice League is far too dangerous to lack a failsafe against any misuse of our power. [...] What if we ever use it for some other purpose? If you people can't see the potential danger of an out-of-control Justice League, I don't need to hear a vote. I don't belong here."''
-->--'''Batman'''

A film in the WesternAnimation/DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies line, ''Justice League: Doom'' is a loose adaptation of the classic ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]'' arc, "Tower of Babel''. In another one of his {{Evil Plan}}s, VandalSavage has gathered together Metallo, Bane, Cheetah, Mirror Master, Star Sapphire, and Ma'alefa'ak to form the LegionOfDoom. Armed with plans designed to take out the JusticeLeague, they set out defeat their enemies and TakeOverTheWorld...

The last movie written by DwayneMcDuffie before his death, the film was released in February 2012.

Just like the ''[[WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanPublicEnemies Superman/Batman]]'' [[WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanApocalypse movies]] (and ''SupermanBrainiacAttacks'' in regards to Superman and ''[[BatmanGothamKnight Batman: Gotham Knight]]'', the ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum Arkham]]'' [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity games]] and ''DCUniverseOnline'' in regards to Batman), TimDaly, KevinConroy, and Susan Eisenberg reprise their respective roles from the {{DCAU}} as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. In the same vein, fellow DCAU voice actors Carl Lumbly, Phil Morris, Olivia d'Abo, Alexis Denisof, and David Kaufman reprise their respective roles as MartianManhunter, VandalSavage, Star Sapphire (though d'Abo also voiced a pre-Star Sapphire Carol Ferris in ''[[WesternAnimation/GreenLanternFirstFlight Green Lantern: First Flight]]''), Mirror Master, and Jimmy Olsen, and NathanFillion reprises the role of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern from ''Film/GreenLanternEmeraldKnights''. Michael Rosenbaum also voices the Flash, but [[http://www.toonzone.net/news/articles/39061/nycc2011-dc-animation-panel-report---catwoman-justice-league-doom the Flash is Barry Allen]] and not Wally West like the Flash he voiced in ''JusticeLeague''. Other voice actors include Bumper Robinson (''TransformersAnimated'') as Cyborg, Paul Blackthorne (''Series/TheDresdenFiles'') as Metallo, CarlosAlazraqui (''{{Reno 911}}'') as Bane, GreyDeLisle (''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'') as LoisLane, and ClaudiaBlack (''StargateSG1'') as Cheetah.

----
!!This movie provides examples of:

* AffablyEvil: Vandal Savage, once more.
* AllThereInTheManual: The film assumes that the viewer has some cursory knowledge on each superhero and their RoguesGallery. Each villain is given very little backstory, even the more obscure ones like Mirror Master and Ma'alefa'ak. The biggest example is probably Green Lantern's trap and his interactions with Star Sapphire, which are completely based on their shared backstory--but said backstory is barely even alluded to.
* {{Animesque}}: Especially Star Sapphire.
* ApocalypseHow: Vandal Savage plans to control this by using a device to incinerate the sun facing side of the planet, while ruling over the other.
* BadassBoast:
-->'''Bane''': When we [[{{Knightfall}} fought before]], I broke the Bat. Today, I break the man.
* BatmanColdOpen: Literal version.
* BareYourMidriff: Oddly enough, the only members of the Legion who have shirts covering theirs are Savage and Mirror Master. Granted, Metallo is a robot...
** (Technically, Mirror Master's costume ''is'' transparent around the belly... it's just that his ''torso'' is transparent, too.)
* BeehiveBarrier: Hal makes one.
* BigBad: Vandal Savage.
* BittersweetEnding: Savage is defeated, the world is saved, all the Leaguers come out alright and Cyborg becomes a member of the league... but the League's faith in Batman is shattered and he himself quits when called out on his actions. That said, it ends a ''lot'' better than the comic it's based on. Here, it's played like a semi-amiable conflict of interest (especially when Superman is involved), in the comic it's a total schism which near shatters the trust of the entire League and has ripple effects to other teams around the DC Universe.
* BlondesAreEvil: [[spoiler: Ma'alefa'ak's disguise as a blonde woman.]]
* BondOneLiner: A villainous example. When [[spoiler: Ma'alefa'ak, disguised as]] a human woman asks [[MartianManhunter John Jones]] for a light, he replies "I don't smoke." [[spoiler: After poisoning J'onn to make his skin secrete magnesium and [[KillItWithFire setting him on fire to burn to death]], he casually walks out of the diner, scoffing "He 'doesn't smoke...'"]]
* BondVillainStupidity: Bane's first fight against Batman is a CurbStompBattle that ends [[spoiler: with him dumping the still-living but quite unconscious Bruce Wayne into the grave of one of his parents and burying him alive. If he had simply killed him then and there rather than deciding to humiliate them, the Legion of Doom would probably have won.]]
** For that matter, if Star Sapphire [[spoiler: had killed GreenLantern while he was vulnerable during his HeroicBSOD, the bad guys would likely have succeeded.]]
** [[spoiler: Plus Metallo simply shoots Superman once and pushes him off the roof, then goes back to hang around the swamp. Vandal Savage has unlimited wealth, and he couldn't afford more than one kryptonite bullet? And why did Mirror Master put conditions on when the wrist bomb could detonate? He's not even there. Just detonate as soon as it gets locked in.]]
** All the above can be possibly Justified, as the traps were all [[spoiler: based off of Batman's plans]], but he explicitly states that the traps were made to neutralize, not to kill. Assuming they were only slightly modified to be lethal, they were still for the most part survivable.
* BreakTheHaughty: Batman actually refuses to surrender to this trope, mostly because his ego won't let him.
* BuriedAlive: Happens to [[spoiler: Batman]].
* CombatTentacles: Star Sapphire seems fond of these.
* CompositeCharacter:
** In design rather than characterization. Cyborg's personality is closer to his comics counterpart, but his design melds elements from his look from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''.
** The Flash is Barry Allen, but acts (and sounds) like Wally West.
* CrazyPrepared:
** Batman. This proves to be the impetus for the plot, as Batman had made plans to take down the League just in case. The others see it as paranoia, but he sincerely believes that all of them need to have something that can take them down just in case the worst happens - even himself. And considering the readiness with which he countered the plans, it's likely that Batman also [[UpToEleven had contingency plans for the contingency plans]].
** Vandal Savage. The missile actually sets off a MacrossMissileMassacre? Okay, fine, not ''that'' crazy. [[spoiler:The individual missiles of the MacrossMissileMassacre can launch their ''own'' {{Macross Missile Massacre}}s? ''Oh come on.'']]
* CurbStompBattle:
** Superman gets two. In the first, when fighting the Royal Flush Gang, the [[SuperStrength super-strong]] Ace slams the Man of Steel with a huge vault door. For a moment it seems Supes has taken some serious damage, but that's only because the focus switches to the other Leaguers' battle. When the attention returns to Superman and Ace, the former blasts through the vault with his [[EyeBeams heat vision]], then [[NighInvulnerable simply stands there while Ace ineffectually pounds at him]] until Ace literally breaks his own arm off. Then Superman catches the other fist, crushes it, and finally tears Ace in two with one punch. In the second, [[spoiler: it's Superman versus Metallo. At first this one looks like it might be an actual fight, as Metallo has Kryptonite and briefly has the upper hand -- until Superman decides he has more pressing matters to attend to and simply decapitates Metallo with his heat vision.]]
** Bane's first fight against Batman also counts. Bats only survives because of Bane's BondVillainStupidity, as explained above.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Vandal Savage. [[spoiler: While every other supervillain would build a single missile, thus allowing his plan to be foiled just by destroying it, Vandal puts smaller missiles in his big missile, and ''then'' puts smaller mini-missiles inside those missiles.]]
* DarkestHour: [[spoiler: When Superman is shot with a kryptonite bullet and falls from the top of the Daily Planet tower, shots of him falling are interspersed with shots of the rest of the Justice League facing their own demises. ]]
* DeathDealer: Queen of the Royal Flush Gang.
* DecapitationPresentation: [[spoiler:Batman holds up the head of the robotic decoy of Carol.]]
* {{Determinator}}:
** Batman. This is a man who punches his way out of a grave through six feet of Earth and returns to action without resting or waiting to recover.
** Wonder Woman. This character trait is basically the crux of her trap; since she would never give up a fight, she'd keep attacking Cheetahs until she died of exhaustion.
* DoppelgangerAttack:
** Mirror Master favors this form of combat.
** Wonder Woman's trap seems to be this from her point of view due to some [[AppliedPhlebotinum nanobots]] that cause her to hallucinate that everyone she sees is a clone of Cheetah.
* EvilCounterpart: Bane (to Batman) and Star Sapphire (to Green Lantern) are present.
* EvilTwin: Well, Ma'alefa'ak is the MartianManhunter's [[CainAndAbel brother]].
* EyeBeam: Jack of the Royal Flush Gang. And of course there's Superman's heat-vision, which is the deciding factor in [[spoiler: his second fight with Metallo.]]
* GenreSavvy: Jack of the Royal Flush Gang. While far from DangerouslyGenreSavvy, he's Genre Savvy enough to realize that someone needs to be on lookout for superheroes during the robbery.
* GenderBender: Ma'alefa'ak [[spoiler: transforms into a hot blonde woman to tempt the Martian Manhunter into lowering his guard.]]
* GoryDiscretionShot: Most of Wonder Woman's scenes when she's infected are from her perspective, so we see the cops, civilians, and Cyborg as Cheetah for the most part. We conspicuously ''don't'' have her viewpoint, however, when she rips off Cyborg's arm.
* HeroicBSOD: The plan to take down Green Lantern involves putting him in one of these with lots of trickery and a healthy dose of fear gas.
* HeroInsurance: Wonder Woman clearly has her premiums paid up. [[spoiler: Cheetah uses some AppliedPhlebotinum to force Diana to see everyone around her as Cheetah, causing the Amazon to assault what may be dozens of civilians and cops, not to mention ripping off Cyborg's arm. Cyborg snaps her out of it, but still, she's committed a good number of assaults of Muggles and never gets called on it. Well, not to her face.]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Batman's reason for the contingency plans.
* IdiotBall: In-story, GreenLantern pretty much accuses Batman of carrying the ball. GL's actually okay with the idea of {{Batman}} having contingency plans to take down the League; what he objects to is Batman letting those plans be stolen.
** Flash also got stuck with the ball as he apparently needed Batman to ''TELL'' him to use his phasing power to get rid of the bomb attached to his wrist.
* LadyInRed: A blonde woman in a red dress J'onn meets in the bar. [[spoiler:It was Ma'alefa'ak in disguise.]]
* LegionOfDoom: That goes without saying, although Cheetah is the only member of the [[WesternAnimation/SuperFriends original incarnation]].
* LeeroyJenkins: In the beginning, Superman asks Batman to wait for backup, but Batman shuts off his communicator and charges in. The Royal Flush Gang kicks the crap out of him before the Justice League shows up.
* LittleNo: From Superman, when [[spoiler: the last bit of Savage's missile escapes him and the deadly solar flare begins.]]
* [[ManOnFire Manhunter on Fire]]
* MarsNeedsWomen: A literal example as J'onn really seemed attracted to that hot blonde who was hitting on him, [[spoiler:until he realized she was Ma'alefa'ak in disguise.]]
* MythologyGag: Jack sarcastically mentions Robin when King warns him that Batman wouldn't have attacked the Gang's heist alone.
** Savage mentions that he paid [[LexLuthor LexCorp]] for the device Mirror Master uses to steal Batman's files.
** Green Lantern was attacked with a version of Scarecrow's fear gas.
** Vandal Savage's plan involving solar flares is similar to the Legion of Doom's plan GoneHorriblyWrong in an episode of ''SuperFriends''.
** During the graveyard scene, Bane says, [[{{Knightfall}} "When we fought before, I broke the Bat."]]
** The Queen says "take a card" while throwing cards at Batman, like the Joker in ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batman: The Animated Series]]'' episode "Be A Clown".
* NeckSnap: Bane does this to an alligator that attacks him.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Arguably, everything the League goes through is Batman's fault.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Bane's arrogance essentially leads to the downfall of the Legion. Burying Batman alive [[spoiler:with his parents]] is really only going to serve to remind him why he's Batman and piss him off. Batman himself [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this.
* NoBadassToHisValet: In the opening battle sequence, Batman gets pretty badly hurt, but being Batman wants to shrug it off and keeps working. Wonder Woman offers to let him use her [[{{Autodoc}} Purple Healing Ray]] to cut down his recuperation time; he ignores her. But when he's back at the Batcave, Alfred insists that he rest and get medical care, and stares him down.
* NoodleIncident: Hal Jordan's long and sordid past with Star Sapphire. It's brought up several times in an important context but not actually explained.
** Also, MartianManhunter mentions a previous fight between the League and the Royal Flush Gang which left Superman embarrassed by Ace. No details are given. Leads directly to a CurbStompBattle.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Bane delivers one to Bruce Wayne, beating him unconscious, then burying him alive.
* NoSell: Ace really isn't a match for the man of Steel.
* NoSocialSkills: Batman arguably fits this trope judging by his inability to understand or accept the League being mad at him over his secret contingency plans.
* OffWithHisHead: [[spoiler:Superman decapitates Metallo with his heat vision.]]
* OffhandBackhand: Vandal Savage does this to Cheetah, after she tried to kill him.
* OhCrap: The entire Legion when [[spoiler:Savage gets up after Cheetah slashes his throat.]]
** Batman, when he realizes that [[spoiler:his contingency plans are being used against the League.]]
** Ma'alefa'ak when [[spoiler:Savage's missile ignites in his face.]]
** Ten in the first battle, literally: "Crap! It's the Justice League."
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The way in which Hal is taken down seems very out of character for him, since the ability to overcome great fear and doubt are job requirements for Lanterns, but it's actually a plot point--[[spoiler: Hal had fear toxin used on him in addition to having his greatest failure recreated.]]
* OutrunTheFireball: Flash, [[spoiler:after vibrating the bomb off his wrist.]] Being the Fastest Man Alive, of course, means he literally can outrun the fireball (though the shrapnel wings him).
* PowerOfTrust: A major theme. Though it's not quite as shattered as in "Tower Of Babel," mostly as it isn't revealed until well after he's gone out of his way to save them all, the team's trust in Batman is wavered by the fact that he made the plans against them in the first place. In the end, however, it leads to a heartwarming moment of sorts where it's shown that even though they don't like his methods they, particularly Superman, still trust him to do what's right even if it's against them, and likewise Batman trusts the League to counter him should he go too far.
* ProvokeMeTaunt: Green Lantern delivers one to Ten after the first warning shot.
--> "Give up? Please say 'no.'"
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Ace repeatedly punches Superman without so much as making him blink. The last time, Ace's ''arm explodes''.
* RecursiveAmmo: Vandal Savage's missile works this way. In multiple layers, no less.
* RoleReprisal: Outside of Cyborg and the Flash (technically, given he's Barry Allen and not Wally West) on the League's side and Metallo, Bane, Cheetah, and Ma'alefa'ak (the last of these never appeared outside of comics before this movie) on the Legion of Doom, all of the main players are reprisals, with [[TimDaly Superman]], [[KevinConroy Batman]], [[SusanEisenberg Wonder Woman]], [[CarlLumbly Martian Manhunter]], [[PhilMorris Vandal Savage]], [[AlexisDenisof Mirror Master]], and [[OliviaDAbo Star Sapphire]] being voiced by their {{DCAU}} voice actors and [[NathanFillion Green Lantern's voice actor]] coming from ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternEmeraldKnights''.
* ServileSnarker: Alfred, who is in top form.
* ShapeShifterShowdown: J'onn vs. Ma'alefa'ak.
* ShockAndAwe: Ten of the Royal Flush Gang.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Cyborg.
* TheStoic: Ma'alefa'ak. While the rest of the Legion [[spoiler: celebrates the apparent destruction of the Justice League]], he simply leans back without a word. He only loses his cool when [[spoiler: Martian Manhunter is revealed to be alive]], and when [[spoiler: the missile ignites in his face.]]
** Martian Manhunter as well. When King knocks him out, he just looks up and says, completely deadpan, "I am unharmed". He loses his cool when [[spoiler: Ma'alefa'ak attacks him]], but in his defense [[spoiler:it's hard to remain calm when you're on fire.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Star Sapphire in her current costume (actually nowhere near as much as some of her other more recent costumes).
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Superman Can Breathe In Space]]: [[spoiler:And he also talks too. Well, he does have super breath, he could theoretically produce the air needed to speak in space himself. Or he is just using communicators.]]
* TalkingToHimself: Carl Lumbly voices both Martian Manhunter and Ma'alefa'ak.
* WhamLine:
-->'''Batman:''' The Justice League is under attack!\\
'''Alfred:''' By whom?\\
'''Batman:''' By [[spoiler:me]]!
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse:
** [[spoiler:The Legion of Doom, to an extent. Savage is the only one explicitly said to be in prison. Ma'alefa'ak is likely dead, given his proximity to the missile when it launched, and one could assume the other five were arrested, but it's never brought up.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Pretty much the entire League's reaction to Batman's holier than thou refusal to admit he was wrong or at least responsible for innocent people being hurt. Wonder Woman begins to give Batman one of these speeches, but is cut off. Superman finishes it (rather nicely), calling the Dark Knight "arrogant" to his face.
* WhipItGood: How Wonder Woman uses her Golden Lasso.
* WholePlotReference: The plot is loosely adapted from the "Tower of Babel" story from the comics.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Wonder Woman pulls out more wrestling moves than Bane.[[note]]after all, wrestling as a sport ''was'' developed in [[FridgeBrilliance ancient Greece]].[[/note]]
* WomanScorned: Pretty clearly this is Star Sapphire's problem with Green Lantern.
* TheWorfEffect: Happily averted. When he's in an ensemble, Superman often goes down very easily to emphasize how dangerous an opponent is; early seasons of JusticeLeague were especially bad about this. But in ''Doom'', he is clearly the team's strongest member.
** As described under CurbStompBattle above, Superman appears to fall victim to this in the battle against the Royal Flush Gang when the battle starts with Ace flattening Supes under the vault door. But in the end, it barely slows him down.

A film in the WesternAnimation/DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies line, ''Justice League: Doom'' is a loose adaptation of the classic ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]'' arc, "Tower of Babel''. In another one of his {{Evil Plan}}s, VandalSavage has gathered together Metallo, Bane, Cheetah, Mirror Master, Star Sapphire, and Ma'alefa'ak to form the LegionOfDoom.

** The Queen says "take a card" while throwing cards at Batman, like the Joker in ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batman: The Animated Series]]'' episode "Be A Clown".
* NeckSnap: Bane does this to an alligator that attacks him.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Arguably, everything the League goes through is Batman's fault.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Bane's arrogance essentially leads to the downfall of the Legion. Burying Batman alive [[spoiler:with his parents]] is really only going to serve to remind him why he's Batman and piss him off. Batman himself [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this.
* NoBadassToHisValet: In the opening battle sequence, Batman gets pretty badly hurt, but being Batman wants to shrug it off and keeps working. Wonder Woman offers to let him use her [[{{Autodoc}} Purple Healing Ray]] to cut down his recuperation time; he ignores her. But when he's back at the Batcave, Alfred insists that he rest and get medical care, and stares him down.
* NoodleIncident: Hal Jordan's long and sordid past with Star Sapphire. It's brought up several times in an important context but not actually explained.
** Also, MartianManhunter mentions a previous fight between the League and the Royal Flush Gang which left Superman embarrassed by Ace. No details are given. Leads directly to a CurbStompBattle.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Bane delivers one to Bruce Wayne, beating him unconscious, then burying him alive.
* NoSell: Ace really isn't a match for the man of Steel.
* NoSocialSkills: Batman arguably fits this trope judging by his inability to understand or accept the League being mad at him over his secret contingency plans.
* OffWithHisHead: [[spoiler:Superman decapitates Metallo with his heat vision.]]
* OffhandBackhand: Vandal Savage does this to Cheetah, after she tried to kill him.
* OhCrap: The entire Legion when [[spoiler:Savage gets up after Cheetah slashes his throat.]]
** Batman, when he realizes that [[spoiler:his contingency plans are being used against the League.]]
** Ma'alefa'ak when [[spoiler:Savage's missile ignites in his face.]]
** Ten in the first battle, literally: "Crap! It's the Justice League."
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The way in which Hal is taken down seems very out of character for him, since the ability to overcome great fear and doubt are job requirements for Lanterns, but it's actually a plot point--[[spoiler: Hal had fear toxin used on him in addition to having his greatest failure recreated.]]
* OutrunTheFireball: Flash, [[spoiler:after vibrating the bomb off his wrist.]] Being the Fastest Man Alive, of course, means he literally can outrun the fireball (though the shrapnel wings him).
* PowerOfTrust: A major theme. Though it's not quite as shattered as in "Tower Of Babel," mostly as it isn't revealed until well after he's gone out of his way to save them all, the team's trust in Batman is wavered by the fact that he made the plans against them in the first place. In the end, however, it leads to a heartwarming moment of sorts where it's shown that even though they don't like his methods they, particularly Superman, still trust him to do what's right even if it's against them, and likewise Batman trusts the League to counter him should he go too far.
* ProvokeMeTaunt: Green Lantern delivers one to Ten after the first warning shot.
--> "Give up? Please say 'no.'"
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Ace repeatedly punches Superman without so much as making him blink. The last time, Ace's ''arm explodes''.
* RecursiveAmmo: Vandal Savage's missile works this way. In multiple layers, no less.
* RoleReprisal: Outside of Cyborg and the Flash (technically, given he's Barry Allen and not Wally West) on the League's side and Metallo, Bane, Cheetah, and Ma'alefa'ak (the last of these never appeared outside of comics before this movie) on the Legion of Doom, all of the main players are reprisals, with [[TimDaly Superman]], [[KevinConroy Batman]], [[SusanEisenberg Wonder Woman]], [[CarlLumbly Martian Manhunter]], [[PhilMorris Vandal Savage]], [[AlexisDenisof Mirror Master]], and [[OliviaDAbo Star Sapphire]] being voiced by their {{DCAU}} voice actors and [[NathanFillion Green Lantern's voice actor]] coming from ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternEmeraldKnights''.
* ServileSnarker: Alfred, who is in top form.
* ShapeShifterShowdown: J'onn vs. Ma'alefa'ak.
* ShockAndAwe: Ten of the Royal Flush Gang.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Cyborg.
* TheStoic: Ma'alefa'ak. While the rest of the Legion [[spoiler: celebrates the apparent destruction of the Justice League]], he simply leans back without a word. He only loses his cool when [[spoiler: Martian Manhunter is revealed to be alive]], and when [[spoiler: the missile ignites in his face.]]
** Martian Manhunter as well. When King knocks him out, he just looks up and says, completely deadpan, "I am unharmed". He loses his cool when [[spoiler: Ma'alefa'ak attacks him]], but in his defense [[spoiler:it's hard to remain calm when you're on fire.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Star Sapphire in her current costume (actually nowhere near as much as some of her other more recent costumes).
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Superman Can Breathe In Space]]: [[spoiler:And he also talks too. Well, he does have super breath, he could theoretically produce the air needed to speak in space himself. Or he is just using communicators.]]
* TalkingToHimself: Carl Lumbly voices both Martian Manhunter and Ma'alefa'ak.
* WhamLine:
-->'''Batman:''' The Justice League is under attack!\\
'''Alfred:''' By whom?\\
'''Batman:''' By [[spoiler:me]]!
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse:
** [[spoiler:The Legion of Doom, to an extent. Savage is the only one explicitly said to be in prison. Ma'alefa'ak is likely dead, given his proximity to the missile when it launched, and one could assume the other five were arrested, but it's never brought up.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Pretty much the entire League's reaction to Batman's holier than thou refusal to admit he was wrong or at least responsible for innocent people being hurt. Wonder Woman begins to give Batman one of these speeches, but is cut off. Superman finishes it (rather nicely), calling the Dark Knight "arrogant" to his face.
* WhipItGood: How Wonder Woman uses her Golden Lasso.
* WholePlotReference: The plot is loosely adapted from the "Tower of Babel" story from the comics.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Wonder Woman pulls out more wrestling moves than Bane.[[note]]after all, wrestling as a sport ''was'' developed in [[FridgeBrilliance ancient Greece]].[[/note]]
* WomanScorned: Pretty clearly this is Star Sapphire's problem with Green Lantern.
* TheWorfEffect: Happily averted. When he's in an ensemble, Superman often goes down very easily to emphasize how dangerous an opponent is; early seasons of JusticeLeague were especially bad about this. But in ''Doom'', he is clearly the team's strongest member.
** As described under CurbStompBattle above, Superman appears to fall victim to this in the battle against the Royal Flush Gang when the battle starts with Ace flattening Supes under the vault door. But in the end, it barely slows him down.

* AllThereInTheManual: Green Lantern's interactions with Star Sapphire make a lot more sense if you've read the comics.

to:

* AllThereInTheManual: The film assumes that the viewer has some cursory knowledge on each superhero and their RoguesGallery. Each villain is given very little backstory, even the more obscure ones like Mirror Master and Ma'alefa'ak. The biggest example is probably Green Lantern's trap and his interactions with Star Sapphire make a lot more sense if you've read the comics.Sapphire, which are completely based on their shared backstory--but said backstory is barely even alluded to.



* BittersweetEnding: Savage is defeated, the world is saved, all the Leaguers come out alright and Cyborg becomes a member of the league... but the League's faith in Batman is shattered and he himself quits when called out on his actions. That said, it ends a ''lot'' better than the comic it's based off of. Here, it's played like a semi-amiable conflict of interest (especially when Superman is involved), in the comic it's a total schism which near shatters the trust of the entire League and has ripple effects to other teams around the DC Universe.

** Vandal Savage. The missile is actually sets off a MacrossMissileMassacre? Okay, fine, not ''that'' crazy. [[spoiler:The individual missiles of the MacrossMissileMassacre can launch their ''own'' MacrossMissileMassacre? ''Oh come on.'']]
* CurbStompBattle: Superman gets two. In the first, [[spoiler: when fighting the Royal Flush Gang, the [[SuperStrength super-strong]] Ace slams the Man of Steel with a huge vault door. For a moment it seems Supes has taken some serious damage, but that's only because the focus switches to the other Leaguers' battle. When the attention returns to Superman and Ace, the former blasts through the vault with his [[EyeBeams heat vision]], then [[NighInvulnerable simply stands there while Ace ineffectually pounds at him]] until Ace literally breaks his own arm off. Then Superman catches the other fist, crushes it, and finally tears Ace in two with one punch.]] In the second, [[spoiler: it's Superman versus Metallo. At first this one looks like it might be an actual fight, as Metallo has Kryptonite and briefly has the upper hand -- until Superman decides he has more pressing matters to attend to and simply decapitates Metallo with his heat vision.]]
