    Mmm, the reason for the CN app having new episodes before the broadcast is lost on me. Metrics on getting people to add the app? Idk.

    Well, yeah, it's tradition that U.S. is the last country that broadcasts episodes of a DC animated series. I still remember "Starcrossed". :p

    I've heard CN uses it as a way to gauge interest in a show since more kids are just streaming their TV online rather then watching it live, on-top of allowing for CN to kind of cash-in on the rise of binge-watching audiences.

    EDIT 10/1: Here is my updated JLA appearance counter for up to September's episodes (ending with "Forget Me Not"):

    Heroes

    Batman - 30

    Superman - 25

    Wonder Woman - 18

    Cyborg - 9

    Firestorm - 7

    Zatanna - 6

    Green Arrow - 6

    Constantine - 4

    Swamp-Thing - 4

    Plastic Man - 4

    Hawkman - 4

    Atom - 4

    Space Cabbie - 4

    Shazam - 3

    Martian Manhunter - 3

    Booster Gold - 3

    Green Lantern - 3

    The Flash - 3

    Stargirl - 3

    Vixen - 2

    Etrigan The Demon - 2

    Blue Beetle - 2

    The Wizard Shazam - 1

    Big Barda - 1

    Dr. Fate - 1

    Red Tornado - 1

    A little late, but the CN app/website/OnDemand updated with the upcoming episodes, plus a couple of new ones.

    What are the titles of the ones that haven't been scheduled? If the New Gods are in one of them, then perhaps that's the Mr. Miracle episode.

    Two of them will be involving the New Gods.

    That is correct.

    So after these new episodes, I think there are only 7 more titles left for this season. As far as I know, "Watchtower Tour" is the only other title confirmed so far. There will be a Christmas Special, Suergirl's debut and more episodes about Booster Gold and Plastic Man, but we don't know their titles yet. And I wonder what else they came up with this season.

    I see they skipped over Plastic Man, Space Cabbie and Etrigan in that roll-call video. The scene they picked for Doctor Fate is so exciting :p (granted, they didn't have much to choose from).

    I think that was in "Forget Me Not". She might voice more characters in the future, but if you're referring to this Instagram post, it already happened.

    I haven't watched the new batch of episodes, but going just by their descriptions:

    And sorry for the spoiler in my last post - I didn't think spoiler tags were necessary since it was a commercial for the DVD release which has only episodes that have already aired.

    Did some binge-watching of the new episodes OnDemand. None of these have aired yet so I'm putting spoiler boxes around each review.

    Justice League Action "Harley Goes Ape!"
    Justice League Action "It'll Be A Miracle!"
    Justice League Action "E Nigma, Consulting Detective"
    Justice League Action "Race Against Crime"
    Justice League Action "System Error"

    Right on. She doubled as that unnamed MNN reporter.

    Yes, I know and that's all true. But that list's aim isn't to spoil things have haven't been aired on TV yet. ;)

    My mistake!

    Sounds like a fun batch of episodes! Just wondering, did Paul Dini write any of them?

    Your reaction to "System Error" is particularly intriguing: I'm curious about that sci-fi premise!

    That sounds wonderful. Wasn't expecting to have so many
    episodes but at least they've come up with some pretty good scenarios for his clashes with the Justice League - like this one!

    Some updates from Zap2It - The new episodes released by Cartoon Network have been added to the guide, but all with the air-date of October 2nd.

    Also, "E. Nigma, Consulting Detective" and "It'll Take a Miracle!" have alternate titles listed as separate episodes ("Riddler for Hire" and "Apokolips Rumble", respectively), but the descriptions are the same.
