I actually discovered this series after it was off the air. A few months back, I started watching Justice Leage: Unlimited re-runs on Cartoon Network's Boomerang channel & I really enjoyed it. After checking into the DVD's, I found out that JLU is actually a continuation of this series.
This series follows the Justice Leage on their many adventures. The team members include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash (Wally West), Green Lantern (John Stewart), Martian Manhunter, & Hawkgirl (Shayera Hol, who is an amalgam of the DC characters Hawkgirl/ Kendra Saunders & Hawkwoman/ Shayera Thal).
There are guest appearances by several other DC heroes including: Aquaman, Doctor Fate, Etrigan/Jason Blood, the Blackhawk Squadron, the New Gods (Orion, Lightray, Highfather), Sergeant Rock, various members of the Grean Lantern Corps...I'm probably forgetting some but you get the idea.
Each episode usually features 3-5 of the main characters. Some of the villains that they encounter are Gorilla Grodd, Star Sapphire, the Joker, Cheetah, Morgan Le Fey & Mordred, Darkseid, Mongul, Copperhead, Amazo, etc.
The animations are great. The storylines are suitable for children without being "childish," so adults can enjoy it, too. (I'm a 27 year old woman & I don't have children.) The voice actors are top notch & they play off each other so well.
The series, itself, deserves 5 stars but this is a review of the DVD's. I decided to give it 4 stars because I felt that there could have been more included in the special features. I would especially like to see more information about the characters & the voice artists.
I highly recommend this series. I also agree that the price is too high & anyone interested should look into buying the sets separately.
