Super-Villains: Justice League Masterminds of Crime

DC Comics Super-Villains: Justice League Masterminds of Crime collects four two-part animated episodes and five single standalone episodes from Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Batman Beyond in this two-disc set.

The set includes the Justice League taking on Amazo and the android's return to Earth, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, Flash, and the Martian Manhunter fighting Despero on his homeworld, Lex Luthor putting together a Secret Society of super-villains, Grodd forming the Legion of Doom, a future Justice League adventure from Batman Beyond, and - my favorite of the collection - an episode where the Flash and Lex Luthor's brains are switched causing trouble for both the Justice League and the Legion of Doom.

Other episodes that seem oddly thrown in are Deadman's adventures and the final episode of the Cadmus arc (which feels odd considering the number of episodes setting up the finale aren't part of the set). The set includes no other extras, but for those who just want a taste of the animated DCU without buying every season it's not a bad collection.
