Cartoon Network on “The Return”: “Nearly two-dozen heroes join forces to prevent an all-powerful android from reaching his goal: the recently-reformed Lex Luthor (courtesy of The World’s Finest).”
Bruce Timm on “The Return”: “The AMAZO show is probably the biggest episode of Season Three. We went into this [series] thinking we would have small groups of heroes, like three or four. [However], the ‘AMAZO returns’ show is so huge it’s got, like, an army of superheroes going after AMAZO. It’s going to be something to see (courtesy of [website name removed]).”
J.M. DeMatteis on Lex Luthor in "The Return": “Villains are most intriguing when we can glimpse their humanity. The minute you shine even a little light into the bad guy’s psyche, he becomes far more interesting and relatable. And that’s what’s worked with Luthor’s portrayal in the show (courtesy of ToyFare Magazine).”
Dwayne McDuffie on Green Lantern in “The Return”: “We thought it was obvious [that] he's trying to forget Shayera through his work. That's why the Guardian made reference to his ‘personal problems’ (courtesy of DwayneMcDuffie.com).”
