Ok, so here's the premise, four superheroes share an apartment, there's the Flash (Kenny Johnston), who can do things really really really really fast, Green Lantern (Matthew Settle), who has a ring that allows him to create all things that are green (like green umbrellas, green propellers, or whatever else you might need - in green), Fire (Michelle Hurd), who creates fire (hence the name, guess), and the Atom (John Kassir), who at will can shrink to matchstick size and then grow to normal size again. This foursome has the usual problems, both with each other (like who's doing the dishes) and with the outside world (read relationship problems, job problems, problems with being a nerd). They also have a superhero mentor, Martian Manhunter (David Ogden Stiers), who's green because he's from Mars, but who goes by the very Terrean name John Jones (dear comicbook nerd: I know it's supposed to be spelled differently, but it sounds like "John Jones", and since it's highly unlikely the Martians have adopted the Latin alphabet, your point is futile), and who lives in a secret hideout at the local riverbed.

Enter the Weatherman, a mysterious baddie who makes bad weather and demands 20 million Dollar from the city council to not create natural disaster after natural disaster. Somehow, nerdy meteorologist Tori (Kimberly Oja) has figured the Weatherman must work at her institute, and she has also found his weathermachine - which promptly gives her a superpower of her own, to create ice - at the institute, she just has no idea who the baddie could be. Fortunately, our superheroes, dubbed the Justice League, are on the job, and since Tori now has superpowers, they make her one of them, and the Atom makes her his girlfriend because she's just as nerdy as he is.

Eventually, the Weatherman is revealed to be Tori's own boss (Miguel Ferrer), whom she worshipped up to that point. In an underwhelming finale, the Justice League stops him from destroying the city and brings him to justice ...

 

Oh boy!

This made-for-television-movie was supposed to be the pilot for a new series based on the fairly popular comicbook by DC Comics, and thank God the series never got made. Basically, there's everything wrong with this that could be, the story is underwhelming and lacks proper tension and suspense, the finale is unexciting, the entire cast's efforts are sub-par, the characters are all flat as can be, the elements thrown in to make our superheroes more human are below even the standards of a daily soap, the special effects are mostly ridiculous, and the superhero costumes mostly hilarious. Granted, Justice League is not the best comicbook DC Comics has ever put out, but this movie is an insult to all superhero comics, good and bad ...
