The fun continues in the latest entry to the LEGO Justice League.
In Justice League: Cosmic Clash, the robotic Brainiac has come to Earth with the intention to shrink for his collection of planets in a bottle. The Justice League is the only force that stands in his way. But when Brainiac transports the League’s most powerful members across time, it’s up to Batman, the Flash, and Cyborg to rescue their teammates and stop Brainiac from adding Earth to his collection.
I am a huge fan of this series, which I believe, started with TV special, Batman: Be-Leaguered. The humor just continues with Cosmic Clash. I have a 3-year-old son, and he loves these as well. But the great thing about this series is the humor appeals to all ages. There are some jokes in there he won’t understand until he’s older. Plus there are Easter Eggs for us comic fans. One of the biggest had to be the use of Captain Fear. When was the last time you heard from him? In fact, how many of you reading this actually know who Captain Fear is.
Then on top of it, they throw in the Legion of Super-Heroes! Not everyone, but the three original members: Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad, and Cosmic Boy. Love me some Legion!
The character that really steals the show is Supergirl. She comes across as a cheerleader. And when I mean cheerleader, just about everything out of her mouth is in the form of a cheer. It’s hilarious.
The other thing I love about this series is how all the characters are written to their most extreme, but with a twist. Superman is the ultimate Boy Scout, but such a Boy Scout, he always see the positive in every situation. Batman’s paranoia is turned up so much, it’s funny. Brainiac great here too. He’s written like an over compulsive collector. You know the type. Everything needs to be in mint condition. The littlest mark and the entire thing is ruined.
I honestly can’t see how they can top Cosmic Clash, but I really hope they keep making these LEGO Justice League films because I’m hooked.
