Like I said in the cancelled shows thread, I'm genuinely shocked by this news. But I'll take it!
What an AMAZING episode this week! While still being funny, they did some nice deep diving into Bruce's trauma.
What happened between Harley and Batman here may be my favourite thing DC did to any version of Batman in a long while.
Looks like it will be a super fun season!
I think that's just the Valentine Special. The new full season will probably take a bit longer.
Clock King and Riddler are diddling?
"Riddle me this, what time is it when the big hand is pointing straight up?"
At first, I was a little annoyed about YouTube warning about explicit content...for all of about 15 seconds. "No big deal, just a rhyming penis joke, no prob-ohhhhhhhh..."
Also: My phone's autocorrect wanted to change penis to punishment.
Season four trailer:
The extreme blood and violence seems to be back. Season 3 felt very toned down in that area compared to seasons 1 and 2.
I saw Snowflame in the background of one of the villain shots in the trailer, hopefully he gets a full appearance. His whole gimmick is the kind of wild stuff this show was made for. A villain who gets super powers from cocaine seems perfect for the type of humor this show has.
We do see a quick shot of someone snorting something during Harley's reflection of "the good ol' days" so that might have been him.
How did that kind of thing get past the comics code?
That might be, but just to be clear (for anyone who might not know what he looks like) what I meant was that at 52 seconds into the trailer, in a scene where it looks like Ivy has made a bunch of villains mad, Snowflame is right there glowing white, to the right of Gorilla Grodd / in front of Man-Bat.
OMG! We watched the first 3 episodes last night and We're Back, Baby! :dancedancedance:
Not a code book.
A bit of trivia about this book for people who don't know (not about this specific issue or snowflame), one of its members (Extraño, the guy in the purple on this cover) is the first openly gay DC superhero. Farther on in the series a bunch of the characters (including Extraño) get HIV from a villain named Hemo-Goblin, who is a vampire being used by a South African White Supremist group to purposefully bite people with HIV so he can infect others with it (being a vampire he can apparently carry disease but not be effected by it). Also the woman in red/blue is Harbinger from Crisis on Infinite Earths, and the tree guy is the villain Floronic Man, who is generally a swamp thing villain but had a brief time as a hero in this book. Most of the characters made for the book were killed off and forgotten, although Extraño came back (without any diseases) in DC Rebirth's Midnighter and Apollo 6 issue mini.
The New Guardians is actually pretty bad, but its certainly an...interesting read, it was definitely doing some crazy stuff for the time.
As I recall, Extrano was super stereotypical.
And people only remember Snowflame?
