Segment Summary: Seven of the world's greatest heroes stop being polite and start getting real in "The Real World: Metropolis."
- This segment is (of course) a parody of the popular reality show The Real World.
- Catwoman is shown to have Hello Kitty underwear.
- The Monkey that appears with Robin is Gleek from the show Super Friends.
- The Falcon mentions Tim Meadows who is an actor.
- Aquaman talking about his capabilities and then breaking down and crying is a reference to how in the Superfriends, they only focused on his abilities to breathe underwater and communicate to fish, and ignoring his other powers, such as forging weapons from water.
- The cast plays Yahtzee at the end.
Trivia / Info:
- The Incredible Hulk, the Mighty Thor (who appears in the opening credits sequence of the sketch,) and The Falcon are Marvel Comics characters, as opposed to all the other characters, who are from DC Comics.

- This segment was inexplicably split up when added to Adult Swim's video website. All of the parts can be found here.
