    Wait are they telling me Green Lantern The Animated Series was probably going to do Blackest Night at some point?

    Why must a lot of the good shows die young, while the mediocre ones go on and on.

    I think that the presence of the book on the shelf and the existence of Scar pretty much proves that Season 2 would have featured the Blackest Night. Probably after the emergence of and conflict with the Sinestro Corp.

    Plus we got the first hint of the existence of Ion and thus likely Parallax.

    DAMN YOU CARTOON NETWORK!

    Plus I get more upset with each new viewing of DC Nation.

    ^Scar? Is that the name of the scientist character in the comics? And who's Ion? Is that the life form within the battery?

    I like it that they gave Lanos, aka "Lame-o," a heroic moment at the end.

    Yes Ion is the being in the green battery.

    Both episodes were great. It is annoying seeing so many hints of things that could have come about in later seasons and knowing that those hints will never come to fruition.

    That's the first time I ever didn't dislike Lagaan(sp?), sucks to be the rebound guy.

    Meh, I still don't like Lagaan. I wince every time he says "Neptune's beard!" That's a really stupid curse.

    He is a lot better in the Weisman comicbook.

    Young Justice just keeps getting better! Shame they canceled it. I'm glad the Light is plotting a betrayal of the Reach.

    I'm hoping that Lagaan dies but i doubt it with just 2 or 3 episodes left.. That guy is seriously annoying. He's just a douche and adds nothing at all to the show.

    Look on the bright side, there'll be yet another Batman show.

    No doubt the execs correctly anticipated that a lot of people are excited about a new Batman show.

    I'm not looking forward to it, though. And I'm even less excited about the new Teen Titans, despite the fact that I really enjoyed the previous show.

    One of the things I've enjoyed about both GL and YJ is that they've been different. Too different and original to last, it seems. But what else is new?

    I'll probably checkout Beware the Batman because Bats is one of my favorite superheros, but if it were up to me we'd be getting a show with a character who hasn't had a solo animated series in the last 30 years, like Wonder Woman, or The Flash. Well, if were completely up to me, GL and YJ wouldn't be ending.
    I understand Batman and Superman are their most popular characters, but it would be nice if they spread the love a little more.

    I think it's been mentioned in this thread, but, I don't think it's about being to different and to original to last, but YJ and GL didn't sell enough toys. And that's ultimately why they are being cancelled.

    I dunno-- is it any sillier than "Great Krypton!" or "Great Caesar's Ghost!"? Actually most curses are silly once you deconstruct them.

    Now, the constant aquatic substitutions for standard expressions (especially ones that didn't make sense)-- that got old. "It'll be a piece of crab cake!"

    Still, I guess he grew on me because between his goofy puffer-fish ability, his unimposing code name (what kind of name is "Lagoon Boy"??!!?) and his general attitude, I didn't expect much out of the character. I expected him to be the team joke, the lame-o who barely pulls his weight -- and it turned out he was pretty darn effective. Even if he's still a jerk.

    Right, I read that. I wasn't exactly making a factual claim, so much as just venting, in the form of stereotypical nerd rage (in a manner that I'd hoped would have come through clearly enough to read).

    However, in all seriousness, perhaps the shows being too off-beat had something to do with the toys not selling?

    Or, more precisely, perhaps it was a combination of the shows' audiences simply not demanding the toys that were supplied, and of people who buy such toys not being interested in those shows in particular. I don't really know, because I never even saw the toys. It's a foregone conclusion that I wouldn't have bought them, unless they just happened to be some exquisitely crafted collectibles.
