      “The Ties That Bind” is a pretty bland episode of Justice League Unlimited, season one. The episode features Miracle Man, Big Barda and the Flash. Mister Miracle struck me as uninteresting, and Big Barda just seems to be a rip-off of Wonder Woman. Plus, the main villians in this episode are possibily the lamest two villians ever in any episode. Brace yourself for this. The heroes fight an old lady named Granny Goodness and a short little dorky

      guy named Virmin Vunderbarr. Neither of these people seemed to have any actual powers and both of them are about as unimpressive as a villian can be.

      The plot is rather lame too. Barda and Miracle have to go to Apokolips to save the short dwarf they hang out with from Granny Goodness, who somehow kidnaps him in about a second. The Justice League does not want to help, because Granny is demanding she be given the son of Darkseid ...


      • in return for the dwarf’s save return. This would give her all the power in the struggle amongst Darkseid’s minions while he is away. Obviously the Justice League wants the minions to fight amongst themselves as long as possible to keep their focus away from Earth. This is about the most sensible thing anyone does in the entire episode.

        The Flash can only do so much to save this episode. He should be able to rip through these

        lame villians in about ten seconds, but then the episode would be over. Flash basically babysits the other heroes and makes a few jokes. Martian Manhunter does make a surprise appearance at the end but it really did not have any shock value because I was not interested in how the story ended.

        This was a very weak episode of a really great show. I give it a 3 out of 10. Without the Flash, it would be more like a 1.
