* HeyItsThatVoice: Well, there's Creator/{{George|Newbern}}, Creator/{{Kevin|Conroy}}, Creator/{{Susan|Eisenberg}}, Creator/{{Michael|Rosenbaum}}, Creator/{{Phil|LaMarr}}, Creator/{{Carl|Lumbly}}, and Creator/{{Maria|CanalsBarrera}}. But additionally, they reused a variety of voice actors. Considering how [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters massive the cast got]] in ''Unlimited'', many of the regulars voiced side characters or background chatter.
** [[Series/{{Scrubs}} John C. McGinley]] voicing The Atom
** Creator/MichaelIronside returns as ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}.
** Creator/MichaelDorn returns as Kalibak (reprising the role and he had voiced ComicBook/{{Steel}} on ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'').
** Creator/EdwardAsner is and returns as Granny Goodness
** [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Robert Picardo]] as [=AMAZO=].
** [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Keith David]] as Despero.
** Creator/RobertEnglund as Felix Faust, Creator/JeffreyCombs as ComicBook/TheQuestion.
** Pretty much the entire cast of ''Series/{{Firefly}}''.
** And, well, just see the pages for ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', as most of their voices ended up here too, plus so many more mainstream celebs that a full list would fill half this page.
** Skeets, Comicbook/BoosterGold's robot sidekick, is voiced by Creator/BillyWest, in pretty much the exact same voice the actor uses for [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Fry]].
** A bit of an homage too, but Creator/MarkHamill reprised his role as The Trickster from the short-lived live action ''Series/TheFlash'' TV series. In addition to reprising the roles of the Trickster and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, he's also Solomon Grundy.
** SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's new gang in "Wild Cards" are all voiced by the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' actors. It is really kind of weird.
** Creator/JenniferHale voiced Black Siren, Giganta, Killer Frost, Zatanna, and Inza.
** Hale's ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' and ''Franchise/MassEffect'' co-star, Creator/RaphaelSbarge, voiced Deadman.
** [[Series/{{Frasier}} Peri Gilpin]] as Volcana.
** Creator/AmyAcker, best known as [[Series/{{Angel}} Fred and Illyria]], was the Huntress.
** Giselle Loren, who voiced Buffy in the video game of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' was Stargirl.
** Alexis "Wesley" Denisof was Mirror Master.
** Creator/JulietLandau was Tala, it's like the writers watched both series and picked and chose their favorites for the roles.
** Gary Cole is Senator J. Allen Carter in "Secret Origins".
** In "In Blackest Night", the prosecutor is Creator/KurtwoodSmith, Kanjar-Ro is Rene "[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Odo]]" Auberjonois taking a turn at breaking the law rather than enforcing it, and the head Manhunter is James Remar.
*** And later, James Remar would voice Hawkman and Shadow Thief and--though TheOtherDarrin as far as the DCAU is concerned--Rene Auberjonois would reprise his role on ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'' as Dessad.
** In "Starcrossed" (and then "Hunter's Moon", and [[{{Reincarnation}} after a fashion]] "Ancient History"), [[TheDragon Lt. Kragger]] is [[WesternAnimation/ThePiratesOfDarkWater Ioz]]--much less {{loveable|Rogue}}, though.
** In "Metamorphosis" the CorruptCorporateExecutive villain is voiced by Earl Boen, who sound a lot like [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland [=LeChuck=]]] when he's being scheming, or even [[WesternAnimation/CliffordTheBigRedDog Mr. Bleakman]].
** Hawk and Dove are voiced by Fred Savage and Jason Hervey, previously known as Kevin and Wayne Arnold on ''Series/TheWonderYears''. Except Wayne's playing the pacifist now; originally, their roles were supposed to reflect their roles on ''Series/TheWonderYears'', but the actors decided to switch.
** Creator/DakotaFanning plays young Wonder Woman in "Kid's Stuff".
** "The Once and Future Thing, Part 1: Weird Western Tales" was filled with this. Creator/{{Adam|Baldwin}} "[[Series/{{Firefly}} Jayne]] / [[Series/{{Chuck}} Casey]]" [[Creator/AdamBaldwin Baldwin]] was ComicBook/JonahHex, Ben "[[Series/{{Farscape}} John Crichton]] / [[Series/StargateSG1 Cameron Mitchell]]" Browder was Bat Lash, Jonathan "[[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill John Redcorn]]" Joss was Ohiyesa Smith, Creator/{{Nestor|Carbonell}} "[[Series/{{Lost}} Richard Alpert]] / [[Series/TheTick Batmanuel]] / [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Mayor Anothny Garica]]" [[Creator/NestorCarbonell Carbonell]] was El Diablo, and Ed "[[WesternAnimation/MenInBlack Kay]]" O'Ross was Tobias Manning[[strike:/Terra-Man]].
** Creator/LexLang was Heat Wave, Captain Cold, and Atomic Skull.
** Creator/KristenBauer was Mera.
** You can hear [[Creator/GinaTorres Zoe]] [[Series/{{Firefly}} alongside]] [[Creator/NathanFillion Mal]] in "Hunter's Moon" and alongside [[Creator/MorenaBaccarin Inara]] in "Grudge Match".
** Creator/WilliamAtherton is Dr. Destiny.
** [[Series/{{Entourage}} Ari Gold]] is Ralph Dibny, ComicBook/ElongatedMan.
** Creator/JasonMarsden is Snapper Carr.
** [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles Mirage]] is Paran Dul.
** Creator/JKSimmons is General Eiling.
** Creator/RobertEnglund is Felix Faust.
** Creator/IoanGruffudd, a.k.a. [[Film/FantasticFour Reed Richards]] is Scott Free, a.k.a. Mister Miracle.
** Very brief, but a thug Hawkgirl and Green Lantern rough up in the "Warworld" 2-parter is voiced by Creator/IanJamesCorlett. His voice even sounds very close to [[Anime/DragonBallZ Goku]].
** Kin Shriner ([[Series/GeneralHospital Scotty Baldwin]]) is Green Arrow.
** Creator/KimMaiGuest is Katma Tui, Silver Banshee, and Linda Park.
** Creator/CCHPounder is Amanda Waller.
** Creator/PowersBoothe is Gorilla Grodd and ComicBook/RedTornado.
** Creator/DanielDaeKim is Metron.
** Creator/PhilMorris is Vandal Savage.

** When Franchise/TheFlash and SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor swapped minds in "The Great Brain Robbery" the bodies kept their voice actors, so now Lex Luthor is being voiced by Creator/MichaelRosenbaum. Michael Rosenbaum played the role of Lex Luthor on ''Series/{{Smallville}}''.

* PostScriptSeason: The second season of Justice League was written as a potential GrandFinale, making JLU something of a post script SequelSeries. The second season of JLU was also intended to be the wrap up, hence the BookEnds with "Epilogue." After wrapping up so many storylines, the only place left to go was the LegionOfDoom. They also took the opportunity to tap into the deepest pools of the DCU, including ''ComicBook/{{Hawkman}}'', ''ComicBook/TheWarlord'' and ''ComicBook/DeadMan''.

* RecycledScript: Earth's mightiest heroes are suddenly lost in another dimension. Not all of them: the most powerful one and the BadassNormal were left behind. The lost heroes thought for a moment that they were in the past, but not, according to the newspapers the date is right. But some brief visions of doom tell them that something is not right. They soon find out that they are in another dimension, home of another super group (a CaptainErsatz of another group, which can not be used directly for network reasons). They fight each other first, then become friends, and fight against the real foe: a kid with a [[MyBrainIsBig big and grotesque brain]], so powerful that he actually created and controlled the world surrounding them. Sounds familiar? Hope so, true believer! That's the plot of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Avengers_Vol_1_85 #85]] and [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Avengers_Vol_1_86 #86]], the debut of the Comicbook/SquadronSupreme!

** A robot has collected so much data that it cannot continue on as a pure robot, so it draws a HumanAlien to its space base in order to merge with it and continue as a part organic entity. Creator/IsaacAsimov [[{{Literature/Foundation}} used it once]], if in a less malevolent fashion.

** In "Metamorphosis" the CorruptCorporateExecutive villain is voiced by Earl Boen, who sound a lot like [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland [=LeChuck=]]] when he's being scheming.

** Stan Berkowitz and Dwayne [=McDuffie=] wrote a comedy-heavy episode called "Misfortune Cookies" based heavily on the ''Justice League International'' comics. The story centered on Martian Manhunter's addiction to Oreos...er, [[WritingAroundTrademarks Chocos]] almost ruining a peace negotiation between two warring alien races, which forces Booster Gold to play the mediator instead. The executives vetoed the idea, but in early 2015, J.M. Dematteis [[http://www.jmdematteis.com/2015/01/jlu-lost-episode.html?m=1 posted]] a summary version of the concept on his website, saying it could have been ''JLU''[='s=] equivalent to "[[Series/StarTrek The Trouble with Tribbles]]".
