It's been discussed in the 'Brave & the Bold' thread, but this was so incredibly awesome that I felt it deserves special mention in its own thread. The third season of B&tB premiered this past Friday (3/25), with the episode titled "Battle of the Superheroes!"; in this episode, Batman visits Metropolis to team up with the Man of Steel, but when Superman is exposed to red kryptonite he becomes increasingly unstable forcing Batman to confront and take down his super friend. In other words, the creators used this simple plot and the series "retro" tone to reference a ton of crazy "Superman's a dick!" cover gags from the Silver Age, along with some more modern comics like "The Dark Knight Returns", resulting in one of the most hilarious episodes of the series -- or any DCAU production ever.

Below is a Youtube link to the episode, for however long that lasts; there are other places to find it as well.

Part 01 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2nZ83ziX1s

Part 02 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPbQOq2YlWM

Check out all of the fun comparisons below. Some of these I couldn't find a specific cover or image they were inspired by, so if you know it then post!

WARNING: I would advise against visiting the superdickery.com website, as last I had heard it had become infested with viruses. I don't know for sure if that's still the case, however, but won't risk trying for your benefit.

I loved this episode. to find that it references so much more in a single episode, holy shit. I know this will be the final season, but if it's anything like this, it will go out with a bang.

and putting a cat in a tree? that's just terrible

I feel bad for writing this show off after the horrendous The Batman.
I don't blame you. I did the same thing after watching The Batman. I forced myself to watch every episode of that turd series.

I saw a few episodes of Brave & the Bold a few months back and really liked it. It's great if you can appreciate the awesome camp it's going for.
