I really enjoyed the episode. Think it was a bit weird that Tommy was Batman and Dina was Wonder Woman (although the undercover name does make sense with that one), only because they were apparently undercover as high school students. I mean Batman is a master of disguise I guess but still he passed as a high school student? Wonder Woman is just weird… I never pictured Wonder Woman as passing for a teenager. And weird a character like her went undercover for so long, I mean how deep undercover was she to become the most popular girl in school and date two different guys? Also should note she dated two HIGH SCHOOL guys. I mean maybe they were seniors but still.
That being said, I probably am reading too much into it. This show is about fun, and to be honest this was set in 1984 and using a game made just after Crisis. So this doesn’t sound entirely unlike something the comic writers of these characters would do back in the day.
And the fight scene and the reveals were all a lot of fun. And Xavier kicked ass as Batman. Dina was a good Wonder Woman also, although she had experience playing that role before. Freddie Prinze Jr. once more killed it, no idea who he is, the fact it wouldn’t have to be someone younger like my earlier guesses given who the others are opens it up. But still a loss, the red blur in the preview would make me think of The Flash, but not sure they would have shown it in the preview if it was that obvious a giveaway. Looking forward to finding out.
The fight scene was great also, loved how they did it. Fast paced and the players were creative in their use of the characters duing it. Carl annoying the Scorpion into being useless was hilarious (seriously, that annoyance is his real power).
Still some issues with they clearly edited a lot (How did Claire have so many hero points? I haven’t been keeping count but 13? I am pretty sure we never saw her get that many. Have no doubt she did, but guessing that we must not have actually seen that.
But some slightly confusing issues with the reveal and time issues aside this episode was a lot of fun. And believe me today I needed it.
