      “The Doomsday Sanction” is the 16th episode of Justice League Unlimited, season one, and it really picks up the pace in the series after a couple of slow and forgetable episode. This episode features a lot of the “Big Three” of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman while also featuring a lot of the other Leaguers in a battle to stop a volcano, the supervillian Doomsday, and ultimately a nuclear warhead.

      Superman gets to cut lose in this episode against a villian who can actually


      take the punishment. I loved watching Superman outslug Doomsday and beat him all by himself. Really, Superman almost never needs the League’s help unless the battle is against some vastly powerful global threat. Here, Superman did not ask for help from any of the other Leaguers. In fact, he goes out of his way to avoid entangling anyone else in his fight.

      Wonder Woman is relegated mostly to clean up duty and evacuating people from the island as the volcano threatens to explode.


      • The Flash gets even less screen time.

        Incredibly, Batman ends up saving the island from nuclear attack. Surrounded by superpowered heroes, he acts like he is the only person who can stop the missle and just takes off from Watchtower in his Batjet or whatever it is called. He manages to deflect the missle and still not be irradiated, although he does apparently injure his shoulder, judging from the sling he is wearing at the end of the episode. His inane heroics overshadow a

        great scene at the beginning where he sneaks into Amanda Waller’s government apartment undetected and questions her as she steps out from the shower.

        I enjoyed some of the big ideas in this episode, including the governement’s stance that the Justice League is so powerful it represents a threat to national security regardless of the fact that the League promises to always help. However, Batman’s unbelieveable antics with the nuclear warhead dropped the episode a few points. I give it an 8 out of 10.
