For ToonBarn viewers that grew up on Super Friends cartoons, and a new generation of Justice League of America fans, prepare for a battle of the ages when the Justice League takes on its archenemies, the Legion of Doom, as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Warner Bros Animation, and DC Entertainment unleash JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time. As always, this adventure is packed with non-stop action and features all your favorite JLA Heroes and LOD Villains. JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time comes to DVD TODAY! (May 20, 2014).
After crafting a monumentally over-the-top plan to take over the world by expanding the polar ice caps, mastermind Lex Luthor is missing and widely presumed dead. One thousand years later, Luthor is discovered and memorialized in the Legion of Super Heroes’ museum, where the teenage super hero, Karate Kid, accidentally releases him (where’s Mr. Miyagi when you need him?). The museum contains both the knowledge of Superman’s secret identity and a way to time travel, in the form of the mysterious Time Trapper. Once Lex Luthor is free, he quickly sets out on a mission to permanently erase Superman from the time stream.
Here is a preview clip from the movie:
