Today's a big day for me. Knowing next to nothing about superheroes...
...as the lights go up on our mystery episode...
...the Hall of Justice! Finally, I can say I've seen something set in the DC universe!
What adventurous and virtuous acts could be happening insi–
...ok, Superman's playing computer chess with a guy in his underwear. That's pretty virtuous.
Unfortunately for Superman, he isn't the best at it...
...as is exemplified when he loses to (who we soon learned is called) Samurai...
...and looks thoroughly pitiful.
But oh no! The story begins with an observatory-based emergency!
Quick, fly out to investigate! Fly with your–... hey, Samurai can fly?
...Samurai can... become a tornado?
...45 seconds in.
45 seconds, and I already have no clue what's going on.
This can only be...
...1984′s Super Friends.
This is gonna be epic, folks.
Fun fact: though this episode was from ‘84, I hadn’t realized the show actually ran from ‘73 to ‘85! That's a lotta super-chess, right there.

Golden Axe, 1989.
I have yet to find out if the gamer urban legend about this game is true, about how the screams in Golden Axe were actually recorded off death row inmates. It’s easy to write this off as a playground rumor or gaming urban legend, until it turned out that the equally farfetched sounding rumor that Michael Jackson did the music for Sonic 3 turned out to be absolutely correct. So, I’m prepared to keep an open mind.
