Battle of the Superheroes!

Battle of the Superheroes! is the fifty-eighth episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

Air DateEdit

April 22, 2011


Aquaman does a musical number in a spoof of a 1950s sitcom called "The Currys of Atlantis". This teaser features Aquaman's entire family, including his wife and Aqualad as well as Black Manta. In the sitcom, Aquaman forgets about his wife's anniversary on the day he's supposed to fight crime with Batman. The opening theme song sung by Aquaman is a parody of the main theme for the 1966–67 Phyllis Diller series "The Pruitts of Southampton."

Main PlotEdit

Following fights with Lex Luthor, Metallo, El Gar-Kur, Mister Mxyzptlk, and Toyman, Superman is infected with a Red Kryptonite necklace secretly given to Lois Lane by Lex Luthor which causes Superman to become evil.
