Last time I remember really, really enjoying a new Superman story was escape from Bizarro World. Though, I might be forgetting something. So that's primarily why I'm actually considering Johns' Superman.

I fully accept that it might be terrible, but I've very much enjoyed stuff from both creators. And it seems Johns will be down to just this book and Justice League.

oh, and just because I saw this while trying to get my facts straight:

That Red Arrow is a ginger Connor Hawke is less frustrating to me than his previous identity of Roy McQueen being overwritten, since it's yet another example of Robinson's original outline for the series being disregarded. It's not even an issue of respect for the writer, there were simply several important plot threads hanging around when Superman went Anti-Life that will probably never be addressed now. Plus more JSA characters were supposed to be around by this point. Shit, even if Taylor does draw on Robinson's ideas, it probably won't be until fall, at the rate this Superman battle is going.

They teamed up to fight Scarecrow. She was surprisingly eager to help, considering she coulda just runnoft the moment he opened her cell. Also, Batman looks really uh, distracting without his belt or shorts.

Batman 28 was released on Comixology a bit early today, and here's a brief spoilerless rundown.

- Takes place six months in the future, acting as roughly Batman Eternal 39.5 and a peak at the new post-Batman: Year Zero status quo.
- Gotham has a new Kingpin of Crime, and it appears to be someone written correctly for the first time since the reboot, hooray!
- Harper Row has a new secret identity (isn't Nightwing).
- And a fan favourite has made/will make a welcome return to the DCU (spoiler in the image).

Pretty much, they said way back when that Batman Eternal is Snyder and Co. reorganising the Batman status quo, complete with permission to use any character in the Batman Catelogue they want. Hence Spoiler appearing after the kind of Orwellian attempt to erase all traces of her from Lil Gotham etc.

Amusingly Geoff Johns said that he's going to do the same to the Superman comics when Scott Lobdell leaves in April, and there are rumours that the Teen Titans-related books are also going to be rejigged too.

So, yeah, it took two or so years but DC realised that the reboot was handled really, REALLY badly!

Even in the grim dark future that is JL3K, Hal finds himself a yandere.

And into the one where she was tortured to death by a third-rate villain whose origin includes getting rabies from a raccoon.

Snyder has actually been given gradual access to pre-New 52 events and characters since his first arc closed. That's why the human tapestry seen during Death of the Family, the one showcasing Joker's greatest hits, referenced his murder of Sarah Essen Gordon during No Man's Land.

So I watched the remaining two episodes of Beware the Batman that appeared in the last few months.

I wasn't all that taken with Attraction. Lately I've been really skeptical of the treatment of mental illness in media, so that soured me on this a little. Outside of that, it didn't do much different. Didn't shake up the Katana/Batman dynamic or have a new formula for the episode. It was solid, but not exceptional in the way that a 12th episode that suddenly became the second last episode needs to be.

Now, Fall was a FANTASTIC mid season finale. The framing device of Alfred's life, while a little convenient, is just so well done. They use it to highlight Bruce's major character flaw in this. And it's the consistent flaw that's been around since episode one.

The major B plot up until now was followed up on well and I really liked the fact that this version of Ra's ads asiatic features to the traditional white guy Ra's design... Actually, I just noticed that they (unintentionally?) made Ra's old school facial hair look like a Fu Manchu... Not sure how I feel about that.

Anyway, basically the only flaw about Fall is that it's the last episode. It ends on a massive cliffhanger, and that's a bummer.

Oh well, at least Clone Wars is putting it's final season on Netflix, so I can enjoy that show, which I started watching only because it was before the DC Nation block. I'm not interested in watching the earlier seasons, but I really enjoyed large chunks of 5, so that's something to look forward to.

The latest update was yesterday.


>Cartoon Network has provided The World’s Finest with programming details for the month of March 2014, and once again, new episodes of Beware The Batman are absent from the schedule. The CG-animated series was removed from the Cartoon Network schedule back in October 2013, marking exactly six months since an episode aired on the US channel.
>When asked for a statement, a representative for Cartoon Network would only say that there are future plans for Beware The Batman but no specific details are currently available.
>While the remaining fifteen Beware The Batman episodes from the series’ first season currently remain unscheduled, two unaired episodes were included on the recent Beware The Batman – Season One, Part One: Shadows of Gotham DVD and Blu-ray release – “Attraction” and “Fall.”

Because they expected the episodes to have aired by now, the Beware the Batman comic has given away some of the things coming in the last half. Oracle, Man-Bat

Does make you wonder what the heck DC Entertainment are thinking will become of their plans fo the DC Nation segment, considering how although CN are owned by the same people, they seem determined to only keep Teen Titans Go going. Have they effectively closed the door on any further dramatic animated DC titles for the foreseeable future? Will we all have to watch Constantine and Gotham to get our DC TV fix?

Oh yeah, the new Arkham game's trailer came out.

I'm not certain I agree. In terms of literature, the average DC book is a step down from greeting cards, and is equally focused on commercialism. Lobdell's been an embarrassment to the company, PR-wise. For a company that puts bucks first, it's surprising he's still around.

The live action Flash costume is nice, but the latest pic reminds me of a photoshop cosplay costume on deviantart. Anyway, with so many great shows on TV now (which are arguably rivaling Hollywood films), it's great to see DC Comics take advantage of the medium.


It's not like DC cartoons were treated better before Snyder. The last season of JLU was aired unadvertised. Kids WB were really the best place for them.

Judging by TTG staying on the network and the new Scooby-Doo show, DC will have to cater their shows to Cartoon Network, if they want them to last longer than a season.

Nice trolling and/or cherrypicking.

TTG is undoubtedly a success. But the ratings in your screencap are from a week in which TTG had a premiere episode while AT and RS had reruns.

Compare ratings for all AT premieres of season 5 episodes, with ratings of TTG premieres and you'll find AT still outperform TTG:

Same goes for Regular Show.

>> No. 225292
Remember the polling DC did the other year to evaluate how well the nu52 worked (spoilers: not very well)? Female readership was down to 7%. It was at 8% 20 years ago.

Greg Weisman over on his website said that he'd pitched a third season of Young Justice, an Arrow Family-centric spin-off and a whole bunch of other DC-related stuff (including a YJ novel that would act as an official third seasony thing) and was turned down flat over and over again.

The comparison brought up in the Dini/Smith conversation was that someone, possibly Snyder, wanted shows like Adventure Time... but interpreted that as just "silly humour for boys" ...despite the huge female fanbase of AT, in addition it's gradually deepening plot and multiple complex female characters.

It's weird, you'd think that cross-demographic appeal would be something that they'd want to encourage, not stamp out.
>> No. 225299
To be fair. I believe that was said about Young Justice, not Beware the Batman, since Dini raised the issue on December 2013:


As far as I know, Beware the Batman was poorly promoted (quite possibly due to a darker Batman cartoon being an incovenient project after the Aurora shooting) and had poor ratings among both boys and girls. And to be quite frank, compared to Young Justice and Green Lantern TAS, I thought Beware the Batman was rather lackluster, so I won't miss it that much.

And I kind of understand why execs only focus on a specific demographic, it limits business risk, if you aim merchandise at just one group, even if it flops you might have only small losses. Yes MLP succeeded, but it snowballed largely due to 4chan, Lauren Faust intended to make a show with cross-demographic appeal, but Hasbo execs originally didn't have such plans or expectations so FiM was largely a surprise hit. If you produce each show with the intention of appealing to everyone, the way Dini suggests, you have to produce merchandise for eveyone and then if that show, or just its merchandise, flops, you'll lose a huge amount of money. It's a big risk and I don't think it's surprising execs working for big corporations aren't willing to take it.

Also, let us please not pretend Dini is unbiased here. He has a large beef with Time Warner over their cancellation of Tower Prep, which was his pet project. But at Disney he's involved in Ultimate Spider-Man which is, in my opinion, far more mindless than Teen Titans Go and entirely aimed at the young boys demographic, suddenly not a problem if it helps a show he works on stay on air.

It's easy after you've cashed all those checks from Time Warner and Fox over two decades to lament about the demographics of the cartoon business. Is it a discussion worth having? Yes it is. Are Paul Dini and Kevin Smith the guys to lead it? In my opinion, no.

It did well, girls liked it and they killed it for it.

Tower Prep was good and Beware the Bat was as well and they preformed very well with a large contingent of girls, getting axed for people with vaginas daring to like it.

>> No. 225304
>It did well, girls liked it and they killed it for it.

Which one's "it"? You respond to a post mentioning YJ, Tower Prep and Beware the Bat it'd be helpful to specify.

Tower Prep, quite possibly, but we have only Dini's word for it and it's not like he has no stake in presenting the cancellation as a bad move.

YJ had very poor toy sales, mostly due to Mattel messing up by forcing the packaging to be in colection bundles and the poor quality of the toys themselves.

>Beware the Bat was as well and they preformed very well with a large contingent of girls, getting axed for people with vaginas daring to like it.

Nonsense. Beware the Bat had poor ratings, 1,0-1,3 millions for a new Batman show is disappointing. Poor promotion may have contributed, but the ratings being bad is undeniable. It was not a popular show.

>Tower Prep was good and Beware the Bat was as well

What is and isn't "good" is subjective and entirely based on taste. I thought "Beware" was average, you thought it was good. No point discussing that aspect.

>And "For business" is a shitty way to do business.

That's a platitude.

Big corporations always limit risk. Pixar started doing more sequels after joining Disney, too. From their perspective it's reasonable. Dini worked in such a business for decades, it only bothers him now that a show of his got canned.

Honestly if it weren't for the monologue about losing his son to The War I could tolerate it. Cornball comic book science can be entertaining. Violence will always sell. Yeah the idea of Doctor Death being his own test subject for a bone regrowth formula is clearly just an effort to give his classically monstrous appearance a "realistic" explanation. But it's that kind of stuff that makes cape comics go round. Then he had to talk about losing his previously non-existent son to terrorists, and his son's CO being the uncle of Bruce Wayne, and the whole time he's using language that borders on punnery. He says people have to be hardened in order to survive. Hardened. Like a healed bone, get it? And then his head explodes because Bruce kept shattering his bones.

Because it's fucking lazy, they never specify what it is as a soldier they do and just hide behind a vague association with snipers and infantrymen as a lazy excuse for bad writing.

All Star Western should be on the upswing now that it's finally out of the 21st century. Someone must have realized that was killing the book. They pulled out of that story in such a perfunctory way and an issue earlier than solicitated.

I also would have stuck up for Batwing as fun. It's the Nightwing book that would exist if Dick's comic wasn't joyless and miserable since the relaunch. But then Batwing's current story happened. DC must have decided sales were lousy because Luke wasn't suffering enough.

I'd say it's like they're trying to bury the previous 30 or so issues under the renumbering but apparently all those story threads will still be in play. And so much for Dick being on the team. Hell, maybe he's still in the book somehow, but Pfeifer just can't say anything since it may spoil the few surprises left in the conclusion of Forever Evil, and we have to wait until May to see that happen.

The problem with focus testing is that humans are really bad at identifying what we like or don't like about something. It's certainly possible to tell through analysis what works and what doesn't, but our gut reaction isn't trustworthy. We all have a tendency to ascribe something's quality or lack thereof to superficial qualities that aren't actually at fault.

That's why, when Valve makes a game, they don't focus-test, even though they play test extensively. Instead, they have their playtesters play the game and they film their faces while they play. That way, not only do they get their genuine reactions in real time, they can identify the exact moment frustration or pleasure kicks in, and make minor changes to affect the reaction for the next round of play testing.

File 13981581106.jpg - (33.79KB , 1280x702 , no shake.jpg )
I don't get that complaint about Talia. She kicked ass for about 50% of the movie, killing dozens of Deathstroke's goons and quite a few helicopters. Even when she was caught and tortured, she refused to give any information away, including Batman's true identity. Not to mention the climax where she took a bullet for Damian so Slade couldn't coerce him into letting himself get killed. She even took her Lazarus Pit bath in stride whereas Ra's usually comes out of it screaming in insane agony.

Then there's this moment. Holy shit. Keep in mind, neither Talia nor Bruce is exactly shy about physical contact with the other (the yacht and sea base scenes), but during this really awkward, impromptu, and sincere custody battle, neither can really manage so much as a simple handshake. It says a lot about their respective shortcomings when put out of their superhero/villain comfort zones. Plus, it happens during the daytime, during which Batman's formidable costume and Talia's alluring catsuit look rather ridiculous.

Something to note is that both her and R'as stumble into Slade's deceptions because they're unused to not being the apex predator human; a mistake that Damian nearly replicates a few times if not for Batman holding him back and advising him to take note of his surroundings before running in guns blazing. In a way, that kind of shows why the League and the al Ghuls are so fixated on Bruce. Granted, the contrast could've been done in a manner more well-thought out than Talia raiding the castle through the front door (preempted by an explosion no less), but the writers were clearly fixated on getting to the scenes where Damian fights or quips at people as quickly as possible. Again, not an excuse, but you can see what they were going for and why they fumbled.

To the film's credit, it is trying to adopt the shakiest part of Grant Morrison's Batman run. It gives Damian a reason to be in Gotham in lieu of Talia sending him there to simply rattle Bruce and try to bring him to her side. R'as's death also creates a parallel between Damian and his father, building upon the unspoken implication that he isn't all too different from the furious, antisocial, and confused young Bruce Wayne who had just lost his parents; If that wasn't enough Talia is even gunned down in front of Damian. A premise that is arguably flubbed when Damian "spares" Deathstroke as there wasn't enough onscreen character development to make it organic.

The Langstroms served as an interesting parallel to the Wayne/al Ghul situation (note that Langstrom's wife and daughter have similar facial features to Talia and Damian's) as they are a family imperiled by the dealings between the League of Assassins and a "Bat Man" patriarch.

However, while I liked the movie, there are some things that I took heavy issue with:
>Damian's "and history repeats itself" line at the fairgrounds. Removing it would've made the scene more poignant with just the implication
>the Man-Bat plan being called "Operation Airstrike"
>Langstrom manning the antidote Gatling cannon
>the CGI vehicles
>the way R'as deflected bullets at the start of the film and his really dumb clip slow motion backflip

Other than that, I had a pretty good time. I hope they learn from this rough start and make some sequels; mostly because Damian's conversation with everyone (even Gordon, who doesn't directly speak to him) except Deathstroke were thoroughly entertaining.
>> No. 226433
While you point out interesting things, like how shy both Talia and Bruce are, I have to disagree with something:

>She kicked ass for about 50% of the movie

She only was active on that part (which is less than 1/3 of the movie) and after that, shes easily taken out in Deathstrokevania.

Also, her design suspiciously looked pretty much like Asami Sato from Legend of Korra.

Yeah I agree. As I said, I find most episodes at least decent, with 4 or 5 being actually very amusing and quite fun. It's not like the show is designed as anything other than comedy, and in that aspect it had at least a few home runs, going by my personal taste of course.

Nevermind found it and downloaded it, it's issue #4.

My beef with the show is not the quality of what it is by itself, but what it represents. After years of Teen Titans, a still very popular series by the time it was cancelled, being off the air...all this hype about a new series, with the original character designs and voice actors made everyone shit their pants with excitement. And instead of a new season of the brilliantly actionpacked, dark yet fun smoothly animated series we had before...it's now cheaply animated in flash and a sitcom. All because Stuart Snyder has this idea that comedies are inherently more profitable than action shows.

Yup, my beefs the same.

I think it was rather unrealistic to expect them to do a direct continuation. I know that such revivals happened for Futurama and Kim Possible, but those shows were without new content for a shorter period of time and had a larger adult audience. Doing a few one-minute shorts is different to doing a 26 episode long season.

Besides, the series had 5 seasons, that's a good and long run, and it ended on a pretty high note (quality wise). A direct continuation with a mostly different writing team (many of the writers of the 2003 series are tied down to different projects), is just asking for an underwhelming continuation.

Take a look at Xiaolin Chronicles as a sequel revival of Xiaolin Showdown, it's of such a poor quality that I would've found it preferable if they just rebooted the damn thing instead of calling it a sequel. There's other examples. take seasons 3 and 4 of Dexter's Lab without Tartakovsky. Or even the above mentioned Futurama Comedy Central seasons (which were very uneven).

The only direct revival of a US Cartoon where a drop of quality didn't occur is Kim Possible, in my view.

Why do so many people demand for good series to continue indefinitely until they become unwatchable?

I prefer some loose ends not getting tied up, than having a zombified show that's jumped the shark. I don't think a full blown comey spin-off was such a bad idea.

I'm relatively Ok with the series, but that episode was awful. We were told we were getting uniquely animated vignettes of the dream sequences and all we got was cat heads, live action, and a scathing dub job.

I think that they mention how she's dating Roy Harper now, something she seems kind of uncomfortable with though seemed psyched about it.

In other Teen Titans related news, it seems that Cyborg's going to be in Superman vs Batman...

You forgot a revival with closer ties to Teen Titans: Batman. I still hope someday that will happen again. They'll bring as much of the old crew back together again and give them 20 more episodes to play with.

Kid Bruce Wayne chosen to be Captain Marvel? Cute.

Indeed they do. Though the word "dating" is never used. But anyone who gets the joke knows what is being implied/referenced.

You mean the 4th season of Batman TAS, "The New Batman Adventures"/ "Gotham Knights" on Kids WB?

I'm not so much forgetting it, I just don't know if one can really count it as revival. Yeah there was almost 3 years between the broadcasts, but almost entirely that same team worked on the first two seasons of Superman TAS in the meantime, so it never really split up. The (2003) Teen Titans writing team has now been split up for 8 years, so it's not really comparable.

Besides, even if you count it as revival it doesnt really undermine what I said, the Kids WB Batman TAS season was by far the most uneven of the 4 seasons. It had some real clunkers like "Critters", "Cult of the Cat" and "Animal Act". And they also lost Eric Radomski with his dark sense of humour and his fantastic and incredibly well drawn title cards for each episode.

Of course I'm still grateful that it exists, since without it we wouldn't have such gems like "Growing Pains" or "Beware the Creeper" ("Mad Love" would've still existed in its comic form). But it's hard to deny the season was more uneven, than any of the previous 3.
