Justice League: The New Frontier - Commemorative Edition

I actually bought the Justice League: The New Frontier on deluxe DVD when it originally came out in 2008, but recently re-bought it as the Commemorative Edition (released on October 3, 2017 via Steelbook).  The only thing new, besides from the new and upgraded BluRay 1080 treatment, is that there is an all-new featurette spotlighting the late Darwyn Cooke. I also started watching the other special features, and was surprise to see Marv Wolfman and Stan Lee, among other creators, on the nearly hour long  documentary called “Super Heroes United! The Complete Justice League History”.  The feature was actually released on the original DVD bonus disc, but I never watched it when I bought nearly 10 years ago (I usually never pop in that second or third disc of Collector's Editions).  Anyway, as far as I know, Wolfman never wrote any Justice League comics, so whenever they used him, they sometime use George Perez's Crisis artwork in his background.  Also, it was nice to see and hear Len Wein speaks about the JLA in the video.

Note: Although the Super Hero United feature is on the BluRay disc, it's still in standard definition.
