    Since the DCAU is over with, I've decided to make a thread with you stating your favorite episodes.
    Kudos to Hyper Venom for making the "Coolest Moments" thread, which gave me this idea.

    I'll start.
    I can't just have 1 favorite episode, so here are my Top 10.

    My Favorite 10 Episodes: (In No Order)

    - The New Batman Adventures - Over The Edge.
    - Justice League Unlimited - Epilogue.
    - Justice League Unlimited - Kid Stuff.
    - Justice League Unlimited - The Once And Future Thing: Time, Warped.
    - Justice League - A Better World.
    - Justice League - Injustice for All.
    - Justice League - Wild Cards.
    - Superman - Knight Time.
    - Justice League Unlimited - Divided We Fall.
    - The New Batman Adventures - Old Wounds.

    I would've listed Batman Beyond: Return of The Joker, but that's a DTV.

    :cool:

    My good, there are almost too many to list. I'll attempt to here. I'll start with B:TAS because it was first and ease onto JLU. I'll also omit STATIC SHOCK and THE ZETA PROJECT as I honestly never watched much of either.

    B:TAS: (almost too many to list)
    "I AM THE NIGHT" -- If I had to pick a DE FACTO episode of Batman, it is this one.
    "APPOINTMENT IN CRIME ALLEY"

    "ON LEATHER WINGS" (this changed superhero cartoons forever)

    "POV"

    "HEART OF ICE"

    "RIDDLER'S REFORM"

    "FEAT OF CLAY"

    "LOCK-UP" (an overlooked episode where Batman faces a foe who is almost a darker version of himself)

    "BEWARE THE GRAY GHOST"

    ..Honestly, there are almost too many to list. B:TAS had some 77 episodes and maybe half of them I could call "great" and could fill up this entire post. Not even a dozen outright "stinkers" out of that bunch, which out of 77 episodes is rare in a show.

    B:TNGA

    "OVER THE EDGE"

    "GROWING PAINS"

    "NEVER FEAR"

    "MAD LOVE"

    "OLD WOUNDS"

    Again, although this incarnation only saw about 2 complete seasons, there are only a handful of outright "stinkers" (namely, "Critters").

    S:TAS

    "THE LATE MR. KENT" -- easily my favorite episode of Superman

    "WORLD'S FINEST"

    "FUN AND GAMES" (offering a truely creepy enemy in Toyman)

    "THE WAY OF ALL FLESH" (the first and best Metallo episode)

    "THE MAIN MAN, Part 1"

    "APOKOLIPS...NOW!"

    "LEGACY"

    "KNIGHT TIME" (the look on Bane's face is priceless)

    "THE NEW KIDS IN TOWN"

    Batman Beyond:

    "REBIRTH"

    "MELTDOWN"

    "DISAPPEARING INQUE"

    "THE CALL"

    "ASCENSION"

    "THE LAST RESORT"

    "APRIL MOON"

    "EYEWITNESS" (definately a tense, taunt episode)

    "OUT OF THE PAST"

    Several of Terry's outings with Ten and the Royal Flush Gang were good...in fact, all of them.

    Justice League:

    "SECRET ORIGINS" (we had to start somewhere)

    "INJUSTICE FOR ALL"

    "THE SAVAGE TIME"

    Literally every episode of the second season except "Eclipsed". Yes, every one.

    JLU

    "FOR THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING"

    "KIDS STUFF"

    "FEARFUL SYMMETRY"

    "THE RETURN"

    "THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD"

    "WAKE THE DEAD"

    "THE ONCE AND FUTURE THING"

    Literally every episode of JLU Season two, capping off with DIVIDED WE FALL and EPILOGUE (although along with the Camdus arc, DOUBLE DATE was a treat).

    As for the last season;

    "I AM LEGION"

    "FLASH AND SUBSTANCE"

    "TO ANOTHER SHORE"

    "DEAD RECKONING"

    "THE GREAT BRAIN ROBBERY"

    "DESTROYER"

    While at first I decried the loss of a half hour in exchange for about 53 more heroes added to the cast, I will say that JLU allowed the DCUA to introduce a lot of new characters. Much like the comics, some became co-stars in their own right, like Green Arrow, Black Canary, and Question, a few old faced got more airtime, like Steel and Supergirl, and the stories became more complex and over-the-top superheroific (not a real world), which is what DC does best.

    Been a great 14 years. And with DVD's, they'll live forever.

    I cannot believe that "Star Crossed" was not on any of your lists! Wow....

    That was hands down....the most intense episode of both JL and JLU!!

    Not to mention "Twilight".

    Ya miss any there, Dread? If I'm going to include an entire season of JL, it'll be Season 4 and the Cadmus arc. The single greatest example of superhero animated storytelling we have. Also:

    JL: Wild Cards, such a fun episode that made me sad when Joker and his ilk got banned from the show.

    and Twilight Of The Gods, I have a big affinity for Darkseid and especially Brainiac, so it was awesome to see them take center stage in this one.

    Batman TAS: Where to start. The Demon's Head, It's Never Too Late, Two-Face, The Laughing Fish, and Night of the Ninja/Day of the Samurai. Those are the ones I always come back to.
