Just forget the words and sing along

I should quit procrastinating and write a column for this week. What's absorbing my attention right now is the fact that season 5 of Justice League just premiered in the States. It'll probably be another month or so until it comes on in Canada. Anyway, we already know what's going to be happening in the first 8 episodes:

I Am Legion - The Legion of Doom bust Lex Luthor out of prison and promptly recruit him. For those who don't care, the Legion of Doom is the evil opposite of the Justice League...a massive team of most of the planet's supervillains.

Shadow of the Hawk - Batman's paranoia goes into overdrive when he learns that Hawkgirl's new boyfriend - Carter Hall - has ties to the evil Thanagarians. For those who don't care, Carter Hall is the real identity of the one, true Hawkman.

Chaos at the Earth's Core - Green Lantern, Stargirl, and Supergirl get whisked off to Skartarsis (i.e. the DC knock-off of the Savage Land) where they meet up with Warlord (i.e. the DC knock-off of Conan the Barbarian).

To Another Shore - Wonder Woman has to foil a plot to steal the superpowers of a 3000 year old Viking mummy.

Flash and Substance - The Flash's hometown is opening a museum dedicated to the Flash. The Flash is on hand for the grand opening. Naturally, a bunch of the Flash's arch-enemies show up to crash the party.

Dead Reckoning - The ghostly hero Deadman seeks the help of the League.

Patriot Act - Green Arrow and a group of non-superpowered superheroes have to stop a rampaging supersoldier.

The Great Brain Robbery - The Flash and Lex Luthor switch bodies. Of course, this episode grew out of the fact that actor Michael Rosenbaum does the voice of the Flash on Justice League AND plays Lex Luthor on Smallville.

Anyway, should write a column. Or, as some random stranger on the message board called it, "a large blog."
