Episode Review: "Sword of The Atom!"
October 14, 2012
"Sword of The Atom!" was written by Steven Melching and directed by Ben Jones.
It originally aired on Friday, September 30, 2011.
The opening segment features Aquaman and his family getting their own sitcom/reality show (Yes, I'm for real!). Aquaman wants to go Tuesday-night crime fighting with his pal, Batman. Unfortunately, Mrs. Curry reminds The King of the Sea that he has forgotten that it's their anniversary. Yes, this sounds dumb, but it's actually quite funny and it's certainly jibes with the spirit of the series.
As far as the main storyline, Batman goes to South America's Amazon jungle to look for a missing scientist Ray Palmer, the original Atom. When Batman also disappears, Aquaman recruits Ray's successor, Ryan Choi, to help him find The Caped Crusader and The Tiny Titan.
