    Superman - 18

    Wonder Woman - 12

    Cyborg - 7

    Firestorm - 5

    Zatanna - 4

    Swamp-Thing - 3

    Plastic Man - 3

    Shazam - 2

    Hawkman - 2

    Vixen - 2

    Atom - 2

    Etrigan The Demon - 2

    Blue Beetle - 2

    Space Cabbie - 2

    The Wizard Shazam - 1

    Martian Manhunter - 1

    The Flash - 1

    Big Barda - 1

    Dr. Fate - 1

    Figures. But I hope Wonder Woman's count goes up.

    EDIT 7/4: Saw opening of "Time Out"
    Booster mentioned he locked Guy Gardner in the Space Elevator once.

    I wonder if that's a nod to the Olympus Starbridge from the 90s comic "Hammerlocke"

    Hmm...I wonder what kind of "updates" they would have on DC All Access o_O?

    A season 2 renewal announcement seems like a long-shot...maybe more info about the Comic-Con panel :ack:?

    It could be just a clip from this week's episode for all we know.

    Speaking of which, this has been online for over a month but apparently not many people noticed until now (including myself). Cartoon Network uploaded a "Best of Wonder Woman" video, which has some brief footage from an upcoming episode at the beginning:

    We knew 3 of those titles for a while now, it's nice to know they'll most likely premiere in the next few months. "Forget Me Not" was screened at Wonder Con this year (alongside "Garden of Evil", which has already aired). I think there's a review for it online.

    The rest are all new as far as I'm aware and sound pretty good I guess. I think it's cool they're doing a Superman Red & Superman Blue story. Titles like "Best Day Ever" and "The Cube Root" don't really give away what the episodes will be about. Maybe Cyborg will be in the former.

    It's good to know we can expect "Boo-ray for Bizarro," "The Ringer," and "Forget Me Not" to air soon :).

    Pretty hard to gauge what "Best Day Ever" will be about but given that seems like something a kid would be concerned about, I'm guessing one of the show's younger heroes will take the spotlight in this episode ;).

    "The Cube Root" makes it seem this episode will be math/science based...maybe we'll finally get a Mr. Terrific episode :D?

    "Superman's Pal, Sid Sharp" is interesting, given I don't know of any Sid Sharp from the comics, and Jimmy Olsen is traditionally Superman's Pal...maybe we'll see Jimmy again :anime:?

    Really interested to see what the show does with the Superman Red and Blue concept, given I'm pretty sure that's never been properly adapted in animation outside that anniversary short :cool:.

    "Phased and Confused" seems like it could be Firestorm-focused given he can phase through things...though so can The Flash :ack:.

    DC Comics posted up a new behind-the-scenes YouTube video for Justice League Action. Take a look in the player below.

    Nice to finally have Darkseid on the show. I think one of the producers promised a new and different Darkseid story back when the show started, and having him in the same episode with Space Cabbie is certainly something unexpected and different.

    And it's always nice to see them actually promote the show!

    Is that John Dimaggio voicing him? Cause it doesn't quite sound like him, unless he's pushing more range.

    Huh, guess they pulled a similar switcheroo like with Imari Williams as Mongol.

    I don't think there was ever any real confirmation DiMaggio would voice Darkseid; just an online rumor when the show started. I recently saw someone claim he's voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.

    Here's the cast list for "The Fatal Fare"

    I think putting a spoiler tag on a link is overkill, don't you? ;)

    Ah, I thought Graxos IV rang a bell. It's the homeworld of Green Lantern Arisia in Space Sector 2815 the comics.

    Largely due to the Fact they sound similar.

    Honestly the voice acting & cast for the show backfires in every way. Like Gary Cole's Black Adam & Andy Ritcher's Cronos.

    Eh, I think those two are outliers to what's been a pretty strong cast overall, and even Gary Cole's Black Adam grew on me a little :).

    Cole's voice did'nt fit the Design for Black Adam. Instead he sounded like a Evil Harvey Birdman.
