Out now on DVD, Batman: The Brave and The Bold Season Two Part One!

Batman wings into an exciting new era, teaming with a mighty honor roll of DC Comics Super Heroes in this action-packed series. Through the show’s season two 12 Animated Adventures in this 2-Disc Collection, the Dark Knight allies with Aquaman, Plastic Man, Blue Beetle, Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Wildcat, Deadman, Bronze Tiger and Atom to take on an array of evildoers ranging from mad scientists to intergalactic crooks, from power-mad dictators to out-of-control teenagers.

Season two part two is packed with more great team ups and even a few flashbacks detailing The Batman’s origin. “The Golden Age of Justice” features the Justice Society of America, the Black Canary and reveals some of Batman’s early training. “Chill of the Night” includes the origin of Batman and features TV’s original Batman, Adam West, as Batman’s father Thomas.

I really enjoy Diedrich Bader’s voice work as Batman in these episodes. He brings an authority yet keeps up that more light-hearted edge so necessary in this series. Special guest voices include Xander Berkeley, Clancy Brown, Jeffrey Combs, Kevin Conroy, Tim Conway, Olivia d’Abo, Michael Dorn, Dana Delany, Ioan Gruffud, Neil Patrick Harris, and many more.

Here is a complete list of episodes included:

Disc 1:
Death Race to Oblivion!
Long Arm of the Law!
Revenge of the Reach!
Aquaman’s Outrageous Adventure!
The Golden Age of Justice!
Sidekicks Assemble!

Disc 2:
Clash of the Metal Men!
A Bat Divided!
The Super-Batman of Planet X!
The Power of Shazam!
Chill of the Night!
Gorillas in Our Midst!

Batman: The Brave and The Bold Season Two Part One releases from Warner Bros. on August 16, 2011.
