Did Batman ever do anything on YJ? Seemed to me all the adults were rather one-dimensional, I assumed to make the kids more interesting.

Re: Young Justice, Green Lantern return January 5th

I enjoyed both shows, and I hate to see them go. I'm particularly displeased with Young Justice going off the air, as I really enjoyed both seasons and would love to see a showdown with Apokolips. Ah well.

Re: Young Justice, Green Lantern return January 5th

I enjoyed both episodes, and I am definitely very sad to see the shows go, especially for another Batman show and the mediocre looking Teen Titans Go. I was pretty happy with the ending of GL, although I do agree that Ayas transition back to good was a tad to quick. As for YJ, I was pretty happy with the way that they tied up The Reach and Rimbor arcs. I am very disappointed that we won't get to see the confrontation with Darkside and his people though, they've been setting that up for the last two seasons, so it would have nice to have seen it play out.

Good idea; that seems more interesting, at least.
I'm not saying Beware the Batman won't be interesting; it would be rash to make that assumption sight unseen. I didn't expect to like The Brave and the Bold, but it turned out to be fantastic. For all I know, BtB will turn out to be great too. I'm just saying a YJ-verse Batman show headlined by Greenwood and run by Weisman & Vietti would've also been nice to see.
Agree, a YJ-verse Batman series would have been great.

RE: Young Justice

So Wally West "ceases" to exist in yet another DC universe? This character just can't get a break.

RE: Green Lantern

After seeing Aya's origin story a few weeks ago and then her fate in the finale, I wonder if the show's creators intended Aya to eventually become the Emerald Eye (from the Legion stories of the 30th century). During the origin episode in particular, Aya's appearance and power level seemed to vaguely suggest the Emerald Eye (to me, at least) and her name is phonetically similar enough for not too great a leap from Aya to Eye.

Or maybe I'm just seeing portents and connections where there aren't any.

Wally disappeared, and there was no body. Another reason to regret the cancelation!

Re: Young Justice, Green Lantern return January 5th

I'm not sure what to make of the ending for GL. They made a big deal about Razor searching the universe for Aya when a quick jump to the Sapphire world should solve that problem.

Regarding YJ: I enjoyed seeing the Justice League welcome YJ into the watchtower permanently. That really brought the show full circle.

It's a shame Hawkgirl wasn't around to pull him out of the speed force this time.

It was a shame too seeing as he was close to retirement.

I'm also disappointed that we didn't see Carol return. I'd hoped that once she'd become a Star Sapphire, she'd be brought back for the big finale. I would've liked to see all the various ring corps standing together against the cosmic threat. And Carol could've played a role in convincing Aya that she was really motivated by love after all.
I had wondered why they didn't bring in the other corps. I didn't think of Carol, but that would have been perfect.

Speaking of emotions, it took me a moment to fully get what we saw at the end, with the blue ring flying after Razer. It makes sense -- now his overriding motivation is not hate, but hope -- the belief against all reason that his true love survives somewhere, and the drive to seek her out no matter what. So if the series did return, he would no doubt become a Blue Lantern.
It clicked for me the instant I saw the ring, and I thought it was awesome.

And it's about time. Really, it hasn't been very logical for him to continue being a Red Lantern ever since he's been hanging out with Hal and co. The more he grows as a character, the less he should be able to use that power.

The magnetic field disruptors were not a very plausible doomsday weapon. Disrupting the Earth's magnetic field would do little worse than disrupting communications and electronics.
That bugged me too. If the show's timing were different, perhaps the creators could have made a nod to current news and called them Higgs Boson disruptors.

I really enjoyed the old TT show, but I don't think this new one will be any good. Beware the batman looks to have even worse CG animation than Green Lantern, but hopefully the actual show will be good.
I would trade all of the recent DC cartoons in for the cancelled Judas Contract adaptation as the direct to DVD movie is was supposed to be.

Right, I know, and I agree.

Perhaps I should have emphasized seems more. I just meant that I'd be more enthusiastic about tuning in; being "meh" up front about something makes me less likely to structure my time to give it a chance.

Not to mention the episode ending on July, 4th.

Re: Young Justice, Green Lantern return January 5th

Another interesting thought about a YJ season 3 - if they did another five year time jump, would the season look at the end of the iconic heroes and the YJ team taking their place? The two jumps would place the time line 10 years after the start of the series; and the heroes had been in operation before that. Batman would be at least in his late thirties / early forties by the time of a 5 year jump season three.

I had often thought that a season three would be subtitled Legends based on the late 80's mini-series that reintroduced the iconic heroes versus Darkseid; and using that idea to have the YJ team take over the iconics legacies would have been a nice parallel.

The entire Season Two bit with G.G.G. badmouthing the heroes was right from Legends. I thought that's what S2 was going to end up being, but I guess it was setup for S3. Too bad we won't get it now... I love Darkseid.
