Why It Rocks

- They introduced the characters for this show such as Green Arrow, Hawkman, Black Canary, The Question, Huntress, Stargirl, Zatanna, Booster Gold, Vixen, Doctor Fate, The Atom (Al Pratt), Captain Atom, and Shining Knight.
- They even have old or new characters from Superman: The Animated Series, such as Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Supergirl, Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Bizarro, Toyman, Volcana and Livewire.
- The animation and the voice acting is still good.
- It got some crossovers with Static Shock and Batman Beyond.
- Unlike the previous series which had two/three-part episode, this series only had a single episode, and it was really good.
- The theme song is awesome.
- Enemy Mines between superheroes and supervillains to fight greater-scope threats.
- During the series finale, "Destroyer", the scene where Superman's final battle with Darkseid was one of the best in DCAU history.
- Bruce Timm is quite a masterpiece to this show, alongside with Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond and Justice League.
- The show ends with a shot of Batman's logo, which is very fitting as he started the DCAU with his own show.
- It was spawned a comic book series called Justice League: Infinity, in which takes place after the show's finale.
- Other well-known DC heroes and villains found from the comics, such as like Reverse-Flash/Professor Zoom, Black Adam, and the rest, should have appeared in this show.
- Due to the Bat-embargo, Batman characters, such as the Joker, Scarecrow, Batgirl, Ra's al Ghul, and the Riddler, did not appear in the third and final season when DC comics prevented the DC Animated Universe production team from using them, resulting huge backlash from fans of the DC Animated Universe.
