    This was the last of the Bruce Timm DCAU shows before we got the self-contained direct-to-DVD DC movies.

    Which episodes were your favorites?

    The time traveling episode is Once and Future Thing, great episode.

    Some of my favorites are(no particular order):

    Secret Origins - How could anyone not love the debut of the JL lol
    Kids Stuff - Brooding 8y.o. batman.. comedic gold
    A Knight of Shadows - I love any episode with Etrigan
    Terror Beyond
    Hereafter
    The final two episodes of JLU with Darkseid and then the Brainiac fusion is one of my favorites as well.

    The final episode with Superman punching Darkseid all the way is awesome
    I remembered the Speedforce episode, the Flash handing Luthor's hide to him

    Though I only watch this episode(by itself that is) around the holiday season, the Christmas episode was good. No major villains, no crazy plot twists, just a great holiday episode n for those of us who are action junkies, Hawkgirl starts a bar-fight. That in and of itself makes the whole episode awesome.

    I love so many episodes, my favourite Justice league team up isn't actually in the JL or JLU series its in Batman Beyond. The Call Parts 1 and 2 were so good and I don't think the show ever did a scene as epic as the one where the JLU are saving Metropolis from the planted bombs (also it features one of the only times we actually see Superman using superspeed). The whole two-parter is epic and whilst it has some flaws/continuity issues I can ignore them all. Plus Superman Beyond rocks (we should have seen more of him in JLU).

    The two parter episode Twilight is probably the greatest episodes in Justice League seasons 1 and 2 (I'm not counting Starcrossed as I feel thats more of a movie).

    In JLU: The Clash has by far the greatest figh I've ever seen animated Superman vs Captain Marvel delivers on every single level and was the best of the entire DCAU. Superman vs Captain Atom and Superman vs Doomsday come very close but not as good.

    The massive finale to season two was incredible with the JL taking on Lexiac/BrainThor but the best part for me was the Flash saved the day, as much as I love the big heroes its so good to see someone like the Flash take the spotlight in a major epic story.

    There are so many other greats and even the episodes that aren't that great have some great moments still. I miss the DCAU :(

    Yes and as if you can't tell I'm biased towards Superman :p

    My favorite was towards the end of the run where Supergirl fights a mind-controlled GL, Green Arrow and the entire LSH.

    JLU's For the Man Who Has Everything everything episode. A very touching story with great action sequences, some classic Batman moments, and killer lines, such as Mongul's 'Happy Birthday, Kryptonian, I give you...oblivion!'

    lol...I'm going to try and keep it simple.

    JL: A Better World
    JL: Hereafter
    JL: Injustice Society

    I have to say watching A Better World after MOS is hilarious. Things have certainly changed...lol

    JLU: Cadmus Arc
    JLU: Destroyer

    I find JLU on a whole to be inferior to JL's second season, excluding the Cadmus arc.

    -Secret Origins
    -Injustice for All
    -Secret Society
    -Starcrossed
    -Cadmus arc (especially "Divided We Fall")
    -Destroyer

    Both shows are filled with excellent episodes throughout, though.

    The Great Brain Robbery

    Watching Lex take on the entire Justice League because he was able to use Flash's powers to their full potential was the best.

    I liked the one where Darkseid tricked the JL into helping take out Brainiac.
