Guys, how bad-ass was Smallville: Absolute Justice?! INSANELY BAD-ASS, is what I’m saying.
Stargirl, Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Icicle and Amanda Waller all dropped in to pay our beloved Metropolis residents a little visit. And then…shit got awesome!
Geoff Johns did a brilliant job of writing a standalone ep for DC Comics lovers while advancing the plot of several Smallville threads. I am loath to spoil any reveals of this spectacular 2-hour episode, so let me just say: the advances in respects to Martian Manhunter, Watchtower and the Justice League family, the fates of Clark, Chloe and Lois, and the little bomb Dr. Fate dropped on Clark regarding a certain nemesis were all mind-blowing!
Yeah, Icicle was pretty weak-sauce as a villain, but we all know Amanda Waller’s the real villain here. I am so excited about Pam Grier’s arc! Absolute Justice was a blast, and more importantly, it was meaningful. I spent two hours absolutely riveted and delighted, and I can’t wait to see where Smallville is headed with the momentous revelations brought to us by Johns (who previously wrote the episode Legion).
So you absolutely must watch Absolute Justice online here if you haven’t seen it yet! Smallville fan or no, if you’re a lover of DC comics, you will NOT be sorry.
