Batman and Wonder Woman arrive at the Fortress of Solitude to celebrate Superman's birthday, only to find the Man of Steel standing motionless with a large plant affixed to his chest. Sent by Mongul, the plant is a Black Mercy feeding him a telepathic image of his heart's desire -- a happy life on a Krypton that never exploded. By immobilizing Superman in a fantasy world, Mongul removes what he views as the only obstacle between him and the conquest of Earth. While Wonder Woman battles the would-be conqueror, Batman struggles to remove the Black Mercy, only to have it latch onto him.Written by

this is one of the few full episodes of The Justice League series i have seen,and i liked it.this is the second episode of the third season of The Justice league.i liked it quite a bit.i thought the story was unique and interesting and pretty straight forward.this particular episode features Batman,Superman and Wonder Woman.the villain is more than match for both Batman and Wonder Woman and a even physical match for Superman.the episode is fast paced,and has great action sequences.it briefly shows a dark side of Superman,and even a lighter side.the voice casting is very good.each of the voices feel appropriate for the characters.for me,Justice League:For the Man Who Everything is an 8.5/10
