    It matters not.
    It's the only opening theme that compels me to raise the volume of the TV.

    awww yes the Flash has been missing in so much of the Justice League over the past year or two. This episode may make up for some of that.

    Flash is awesome!

    This episode proved what it takes to be a hero. As was said previously written about him so elequently in Divided We Fall last year. Flash again shows that he has no hang-ups being a super hero whereas some of the other JLU members are uncomfortable in the role.

    Orion pretty figured out why Flash is The Flash but even with that The Speedster can take it on the chin.

    Mark Hamill did a cool job as the voice of The Trickster but his Joker is better. But that's just my preference.

    "...and then, EVERYTHING EXPLODES!"

    Oh I love this episode.

    How Flash took the Trickster down was one of the best things Justice League has ever done.

    That was the greatest defeating of a super villain I have ever seen.

    Does anyone else think the trickster looks a lot like this...

    Which is funny considering who's voicing him... heh

    Did I just hear TOM refer to the show as "JLU"?

    Yea, you did. He says the full title for Bobobo, but not Justice League Unlimited? ._.

    Yep. I was laughing as soon as I saw The Trickster since the connection immediately clicked in my head.

    And I agree with everyone else, Flash "defeating" Trickster was fantastic.

    That's him playing the Trickster on the old Flash live action show.

    And I just saw the Kid Flash suit. I would've thought Teen Titans would've prevented that (well... there is Speedy...).

    This is a hilarious episode. I already give it a 10 star rating.

    "The way people tell it, you'd think he stuck my freeze gun right up my..."

    "I've had him on the ropes once!" "Yeah, that's the way I hear it."

    L. M. F. A. O. I've missed this show. So much.

    Wow I didn't know he was on that. It all makes sense about the resemblence and why they had him do the voice then.

    "You're tied to a giant boomerang."

    Seemed short. Not all that much 'substance'. Would've liked to see Batman and Captain Boomerang's actual fight. But fun.

    4/5
