I've always thought that this episode was probably by far the best of all of the shorts. I still remember the first time I saw it. It would have made a much better 30 minute episode though, or possibly even an hour.

The story is just absolutely brilliant. Everything from Zor-El and Alura to Robin scared half to death in the rubble of the Hall of Justice. Absolutely brilliant.

What I wonder about is... who is in the alternate timeline's Legion of Doom? More importantly, who is leading the alternate Legion of Doom? With no Superman, Bizarro wouldn't exist (denying the Legion one of its most powerful members), and Lex Luthor wouldn't have become a villain in the first place (since History of Doom established that he became a villain specifically to get revenge on Superboy). It's possible that Toyman and Brainiac wouldn't be part of the Legion, either, since both are Superman villains. Having the Superfriends-minus-Superman be utterly unable to stop a version of the Legion with four fewer members really makes the rest of the Superfriends look bad. Yes, logically, I know that the ultimate reason is that the writers didn't think about it as deeply as I did, and they just needed a reason for Superman to go back and undo everything he did, but it still bugs me. - DarkStorm (talk) 18:53, September 4, 2013 (UTC)

Well, I think that it's really difficult to say who would be in the Legion of Doom in the alternate timeline. For one thing, how do we know that Lex Luthor doesn't go mad for some other reason. It's very possible he just has another archenemy in this timeline. Bizarro probably wouldn't exist, but Brainiac could. As for Toyman, well, he's kind of worthless anyway. But Brainiac, he could still come to Earth, and this time Superman wouldn't be around to stop him. Plus, Sinestro, Solomon Grundy, Grodd and Giganta, some of the Legion's heavy hitters, would still be around. I don't necessarily think that makes the League seem weak, these are still powerful supervillains.
