Animated World of DC Comics: Mayhem of the Music Meister (2009)

From Batman: The Brave & The Bold:

In one of the campiest episodes of the series, a new villain, the Music Meister (Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother) surfaces with plans for world domination. His powers, though, cause not only Aquaman (John DiMaggio), Black Canary, Green Arrow, & the Batman (Diedrich Bader) to sing, but villains he's hired himself, in this case Black Manta, Grodd, and Clock King.

In truth, Green Arrow (James Arnold Taylor) is fortunate not to actually sing. He'd probably never hear the end of it. Anyway, "Mayhem of the Music Meister" is considered one of the more popular episodes of the series. We previously featured the track, "Drives Us Bats", so now, with the Music Meister being brought to life in tonight's episode of The Flash by Glee alumnus and avowed comics fan Darren Criss, let's take you back to the debut of the Music Meister.

We all know Green Arrow & Black Canary have been an on-again, off-again item in the comics, and this episode helps set that table, though I'm not so sure about Dinah ever crushing on Batman........

No rating.
