Recap / Justice League Unlimited S 1 E 11 Wake The Dead

A group of college students accidentally bring Solomon Grundy back to life, who then rampages through the city. Superman, Green Lantern, and Vixen go off to stop him. They get backup in the form of Dr. Fate, Aquaman, Amazo, and a surprise appearance from Shayera, who may be the only one who can stop the super zombie.

This episode includes examples of:

  • The Bus Came Back: Shayera returns to action since the end of season 2.
  • Hurl It into the Sun: A.M.A.Z.O. tries to defeat Grundy by teleporting him into the Sun, but it doesn't work.
  • I'm Standing Right Here:
    Aquaman: "Such tintilating reparte. I get better conversation from the android."
    AMAZO: "... You ARE aware I'm in the room?"
  • No-One Could Survive That: Vixen and Aquaman crush Grundy under a giant statue, but Superman doesn't believe for a second that would be enough to stop him. Vixen claims there's no way he could've taken that and live, just before Grundy pops out and manhandles her.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Grundy is a super-powered zombie capable of shrugging off hits from Superman.
  • Shoot the Dog: Shayera was forced to put Grundy out of his misery.
  • What the Hell, Townspeople?: After ending Grundy and saving the city, the city citizens throw angry remarks at Shayera as they have not forgiven or forgotten the Thanagarian takeover incident she was involved in back in Starcrossed.
