November 20, 2016 5:09 AM - Season 1, Episode 5 - Subscribe

Superboy has anger issues after he learns that Superman is a dick. The team battles one of the Justice League’s most formidable foes, the android Amazo.

Batman, who realizes the importance of a father figure in one’s life, tries to talk some sense into Superman. He also has a Shakespeare bust with a secret button, just as in the 60s TV show.

Clark Kent orders the apple pie, while Bruce Wayne orders the devil’s food cake. A nice little character beat.

Superman is a dick on the blue.

Black Canary is just so perfectly awesome here. It makes me weep to think just how thoroughly Berlanti ruined such a great character.

Superboy hates monkeys. Well, Superboy, I’ve got some bad news for you. You’re in the DC Universe, and DC LOVES monkeys.

Superman was a dick. This was the one piece of characterization I didn't really feel they got right.

I think it's this episode that has the blink-and-you'll-miss-it school portrait of Dick Grayson, Mathlete. Always cracks me up.
