- This was made to lead into a TV show, but not even this made-for-TV movie made it on the air in North America.
- The team is led by Martain Manhunter, who looks like The Mask and lives in a giant submarine that looks like a whale.
- The rest of the team (Flash, Green Lantern, Atom, and Fire) all apparently live in a non-descript house.
- They all protect a place called Metro City, which seems to be about 100,000-ish people in size.
- Green Lantern's outfit is turquois. Out of costume, he keeps wearing yellow articles of clothing.
- The villain is "The Weatherman." At one point, they're all trapped in Manhunter's whale-base by Weatherman by some unelaborated-on ray he shoots them with. Eventually, Green Lantern gets them out by grabbing a crowbar that was nearby (and that he could have just made with his make-anything power) and prying a door open.
- Near the end of the movie, The Weatherman goes out to a radio antenna near the coast and creates a tidal wave to destroy Metro City with his magic weather-controlling briefcase. Green Lantern gets to his location by using his ring to helicopter over. The Weatherman deals with this threat by pitching his briefcase off the tower. Apparently unable to figure out a way of retrieving the briefcase, Lantern radios to the rest of the team that he has failed to stop The Weatherman.
- The Flash gets fired from his day job as a mail carrier after he finishes his route far earlier than he should have been able to, then goes into the postal building to "see if there's anything else for him to do." Presumably they assumed he dumped everyone's mail.
- Martian Manhunter has a hilariously fat gut.
- Fire keeps getting hit on by a 14-year-old boy, who lavishes her with gifts. At one point, he figures out her superhero alter-ego, so in the midst of The Weatherman trying to destroy the city, Martain Manhunter has to assume Fire's identity to convince the kid that they're different people.
Oh, and near the beginning of the movie, The Weatherman accosts Metro City with a tornado. The heroes spread out to best use their powers to help the city. Flash runs around the tornado to put it out. Green Lantern stops a telephone pole from falling over. Atom shrinks down to scare a cat out from under some old woman's house. Fire may not have done anything at all.
- During the tidal wave, Green Lantern deals with The Weatherman, as mentioned. Flash carries children off to God knows where three at a time. Newly-joined superhero Ice eventually freezes the wave, solving(?) the problem. Atom shrinks down to sit on Fire's shoulders while Fire, as usual, proceeds to do fuck all.
- After dealing with The Weatherman, Ice apparently decides not to join the Justice League. Atom, who is a love interest of hers, shows up at her house and rings her doorbell. Ice goes to the door, sees who it is, but doesn't let him in. Atom then shrinks down, slips under her door, resizes, unlocks the door for the rest of the Justice League to enter, and then they all demand she join the Justice League while plainly trespassing.
Seriously this looks even worse than I remembered, it's like they tried to make a superhero movie on a sitcom budget, the generic hangout looks like the main set of a hastily greenlit Friends-knockoff.
Fun fact, not only did Miguel Ferrer play The Weather Man in this movie, he also voiced his somewhat more dignified appearance in Superman: The Animated Series in the same year. The 90s were a weird time
This is the stupidest god damned fucking thing I've ever seen. Five stars!
Yes, Weather Wizard. The DC character so lame they had to rename him "Weather Man" just to not make him seem as stupid.

DC both sucks and blows at the same time.
