The Ultimen are [[{{Expy}} based on]] the original characters created for the ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'' show:



* NotWorthKilling: Juice seems ready to kill Lord for using them, but Long Shadow argues he isn't important enough for them to bother.
-->"No; he's nothing. We want the ''big'' fish."



* YourDaysAreNumbered: The Ultimen's bodies are breaking down, dooming them to die -- perhaps in days, perhaps in months, but certainly not very far in the future.

* CurbstompBattle: Downpoour vs. Aquaman. One has water powers, the other is at his best in water. Worst possible matchup.
(Downpour hits Aquaman with a torrent of water, but stands unaffected)

** Also, the Ultimen headquarters resembles the Hall of Justice, and the Justice League members seen in the episode (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman) are the same one who appear in most of the earlier seasons of ''Super Friends'' (except for the presence of both Batman and Robin in the latter).

A deep-sea oil well is attacked by a swarm of lava creatures. The Justice League team is having a difficult time of it, until another group of superheroes arrives. The combined efforts of the Justice Leaguers and the the "Ultimen" stop the lava creatures, saving the crew and preventing a major oil spill. During the battle, one of the Ultimen, Wind Dragon, suddenly manifests a new power as the winds he creates become freezing cold.

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Long Shadow's sudden super hearing cues him in on the dark secret behind the Ultimen's creation. More generally, the sudden shifts in powers may be another part of the ''Super Friends'' mythology gag -- on that show, the writers and animators were rather slipshod about keeping track of which hero had what power.
