The Super Kiss

Parody of the scene in Superman II where Superman kisses Lois Lane to make her forget he's Superman. He decides to use his kissnesia on Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Solomon Grundy, Brainiac to make them forget why they hate him. It backfires on him when they show up at the Fortress of Solitude with flowers and candy as Superman claims that he should've thought this through.

Two-Face's OCD

Two-Face cannot stop flipping his coin to make decisions, even when he goes to the bathroom. His latest coin flip has him not flushing the toilet much to the dismay of Penguin.

Cold Villains

Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold, Icicle, and Chillblaine all rob a jewelry auction, causing a problem between the four cold-themed villains. The cold-themed villains noticed that they took out some load-bearing walls. The building collapses as Ice is shown outside.

Funeral in Earth-C

Superman invites Batman and Green Lantern to Captain Carrot's funeral in Earth-C, but Green Lantern can't help himself from laughing at the other members of the Zoo Crew, causing him to abruptly leave.

Out to Score

Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, and Flash hit the bar scene to pick up some ladies. But when Superman and Green Lantern strike out, Aquaman tries to pick up a woman who turns out to be Martian Manhunter in disguise causing him to go home, get drunk and try to have sex with a dolphin.

Doom Secret Santa

At the Legion of Doom's HQ, the Legion members draw names for Secret Santa as part of team building according to Lex Luthor. Sinestro draws Leonard Snart who he assumes is the smelly worker in the mailroom as Captain Cold tells him that he's Leonard Snart. Sinestro then claims that he thinks the mailroom worker is named Glenn. Lex then introduces a new rule where the gifts must not be exploding toys. Toyman states that he's the only one affected by that rule as Scarecrow that he still has that forehead scare from Christmas 2004. When the smelly mailroom worker Glenn comes in after the names have been drawn, they all stop talking. Glenn shouts at them that it's not his fault that he has a glandular condition and that he showers every day as he passes by. Once the commercial ends, the narrator announces the bad news where Glenn killed himself during the commercial break.

Nerd Lantern

Instead of Hal Jordan, the Robot Chicken Nerd ends up finding Abin Sur and receiving his ring instead. When he is taken to Oa and begins his training with Kilowog, the Guardians begin to doubt if humans are worthy of a power ring where he engages Kilowog in strange training that involved creating a construct of Selena Gomez. The Guardians of the Universe hope that Abin Sur was given a proper funeral. Meanwhile on Earth, Abin Sur's corpse is eaten by bears.

Luthor's Warsuit

Lex Luthor steps into the perfect Superman-killing machine until the scientist's son kicks a ball that hits Lex in the face.

That Tickles

A criminal shoots Superman, but when he notices the bullets are bouncing off, he fires at his crotch, which continues to deflect the bullets, much to Superman's confusion.

The Punctuation Posse

After taking a break from the Legion of Doom, Riddler forms the Punctuation Posse which consists of Comma, Quotes, and Exclaimer which is quickly beaten up by the Justice League.

That's Bane! Thrice!

At the Hall of Justice, Bane sneaks up on Batman and breaks his back over his knee once again while Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern watch.

Sinestro's Final Moment

In the Legion of Doom bathroom, Riddler and Mirror Master tease Sinestro into shaving his mustache. As soon as the razor touches his lip, it starts gushing blood, causing Riddler and Mirror Master to run off in disgust.

That Is It

Aquaman's had enough of the lack of respect after Superman and Wonder Woman both mock his powers, Robin uses his trident to unclog the toilet, Martian Manhunter cooks his lobster friends, and he slips on a puddle and gets mocked by the other heroes.

Real Characters from the DC Universe Pt. 3

Meet Mister Banjo, a supervillain who steals top secret information and plays Morse code about it on his banjo. Suddenly, an enraged Firestorm bursts in and refuses to be in the same category as "Fatty Arbuckle". When Mister Banjo claims that his banjo costs him some money, Firestorm uses his powers to turn the banjo into metal and then beats Mister Banjo. When he asks where B'dg is, the narrator quotes "Down the hall. First dressing room to the right". Firestorm heads there as B'dg can he heard introducing himself as Firestorm beats him up with the metal banjo.

Aqua Doom

Aquaman visits the Legion of Doom HQ and asks to join after getting by Giganta much to the annoyance of Black Manta. At first, they refuse. But when he tells them he's got security access codes to the Hall of Justice, they let him on the team.

Solomon Grundy

Solomon Grundy finds out he was actually born on a Tuesday and that his real name is Solomon Gruesday, much to his anger.

Aquaman Appreciation Party

Aquaman leads the Legion of Doom into the Hall of Justice in a Trojan cake, where the heroes are revealed to have thrown Aquaman a party. After Aquaman cuts into the cake with Toyman getting stabbed in the process, the Legion of Doom is revealed, leading to an epic final battle between the Justice League and the Legion of Doom.

As Penguin's leg is asleep, Mister Banjo plays his banjo as the Justice League and the Legion of Doom fight in various ways:

  • Sinestro fights Green Lantern while mentioning how he got a staff infection and that he almost died. He kicks a ball which hits Lex Luthor during his fight with Martian Manhunter.
  • Gorilla Grodd slams Samurai and El Dorado into each other.
  • Mirror Master tries to do a mirror trick on Doctor Mid-Nite who punches him.
  • Penguin and Captain Cold slam cake into Green Arrow.
  • Wonder Woman strangles Black Manta.
  • Solomon Grundy kicks Booster Gold as he quotes "See you next Gruesday".
  • Robin is kicked by Captain Cold, Chillblaine, Icicle, and Mr. Freeze while still using their cold-related puns.
  • Wonder Woman fights Catwoman, Cheetah, and Harley Quinn. Then she punches Penguin in the nose.
  • Two-Face flips a coin and punches himself.
  • Superman kisses Riddler.
  • Darkseid incinerates Wildcat as he asks why he has to fight Darkseid.
  • While fighting Batman, Joker shoots urine out of his squirting flower. After Harley Quinn makes a urine pun, Bane sneaks up on Batman again as he quotes "rule of three".
  • Cyborg is harassed by the Humping Robot.
  • Hawkman punches Brainiac who comments that he can't concentrate with that banjo noise. When Mister Banjo tries to use the gun feature of his banjo, he is punched by Flash.

The fight ends with Superman, Lex Luthor, and Aquaman remaining. Aquaman punches Lex Luthor while Superman is hit by the Kryptonite.

By the final scene, all of them are attending Glenn's funeral. When Jimmy Olsen notes about how this ending didn't reveal how Superman survived, Superman states that he won't remember this as he kisses him and does the same thing to the viewer.

Robot Chicken DC Comics Special was released on DVD and Blu-ray, on July 9, 2013.

Sources and influences

The logo for the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special is a modification of that for the Super Powers Collection.

The opening sequence of the special parodies that of the Challenge of the Superfriends albeit with the Legion of Doom substituted with Robot Chicken original characters Chicken, Mad Scientist, Nerd, Humping Robot, Composite Santa, Gummy Bear, the Unicorn, and Bitch Puddin'.

Most of the figures used for the special are from the Mego World's Greatest Superheroes!, Mattel DC Universe Classics, and EMCE Toys/Mattel DC Retro Action Superheroes toylines. Brainiac and Lex Luthor would see both DC Universe Classics and DC Retro Action Superheroes versions (though, of course, the DC Retro Action Superheroes Brainiac figure was an original piece).

The graphic for the "Real Characters from the DC Universe" is very similar to the Challenge of the Superfriends title graphic.

The Hall of Justice is from the Super Powers Collection but is white rather than yellow to be in line with its appearance in Super Friends.

The use of Mister Freeze, Captain Cold, Icicle, and Chillblaine as a group of cold-themed villains is an ongoing theme from DC Comics seeing previous versions including a team-up by Captain Cold, Icicle, and Minister Blizzard in Justice League of America #139 (February 1977), the Cold Warriors in Justice League Adventures #12 (December 2002), the Ice Pack in Super Friends #16 (August 2009), and Icicle, Icicle Jr, Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold, and Killer Frost in Young Justice "Terrors".
