    Jason J. Lewis revealed Jim Krieg wrote "Good Cop, Bat Cop".

    Deadshot's interrogation here kind of reminded me of two scenes from Justice League - the way Batman scared him (off-screen) just by talking to him in "The Enemy Below", and Superman trying to intimidate Copperhead in "Injustice For All".

    I think that's how they started the Batman Unlimited shorts as well - released a few of them without warning, then one per week. I hope Justice League Action will get more shorts than the 33 that series had, but we'll see.

    I thought the same.

    I like to think Wonder Woman let Superman indulge in his Bad Cop fantasy since she's the most effective interrogator of the bunch (cough lasso cough).

    I swear they should just make a joke out of all the times they should've used the Lasso of Truth but didn't :p.

    Luthor's silver armor looks pretty good. A Kryptonite Bat sounds weird. :p

    Other than that, this was actually pretty clever.

    Hmm, I know they're harking back to the Silver Age/Bronze Age Lex, but I miss the more modern, tycoon Lex.

    Given quite a few episodes featuring Luthor have focused on him putting Superman in dire situations through predicting how the Man of Steel would act, it's fun to see Supes manage to turn the tables for once with some thinking of his own ;).

    I also love how Superman pointed out how absurd Lex's planning was, right down to the Kryptonite bat :p.

    Not sure why Lex's suit was a completely different color in this episode, but I guess it's nice to see some variety :sweat:?

    It's like Justice League Action just MST3K'd Batman v. Superman.

    So the moral of the story is don't stand under holes. :p

    But really Lex? All that planning and you make a fake name from cheeses? Oi.

    Nice seeing Deadshot again. And cool focus on Wonder Woman as well, I liked the short fight scene. The surprise guests were fun. Booster's confession was great.

    It was cool to see Deadshot pop up again, and his guns going up against Wonder Woman's bracelets was a pretty exciting fight :cool:.

    Plas is probably lucky Wonder Woman didn't take more issue to the fact that he was physically attached to her hip without her knowing like that :sweat:.

    Something tells me Booster Gold will probably want to avoid the Lasso of Truth going forward :p.

    So Luthor hired Deadshot to take out Wonder Woman? I wonder if he hired him to take out Batman as well in that earlier short o_O?

    Poor Deadshot's not getting his ice cream :rolleyes2:.

    Loved that fight sequence! Also lol'ed when she squeezed Plas' face.

    I wondered if Luthor hired Deadshot to attack WW as a distraction so she wouldn't accompany Superman to the trap in the previous webisode.

    Time suit hasn't worked in a few months? Guess that places this before "Time Out"
