We have a thread for almost each one of the big 4 cartoons in their respective worlds threads, in the DCAU, except this one, so I will finally start. Celebrating the 25th anniversary for the show that launched this greatness, I saw myself watching Superman:TAS as a valued companion to The New Batman Adventures, so I opted to marathon the rest of the DCAU (with exception to Static Shock and the Zeta Project, those two shows feel superfluous in the grand scheme of things), now I'm into season 1 of Justice League. Secret Origins A fine opening arc, but I have my issues with it: Batman is surprised to see Hawkgirl joining their fight against the white invaders to Mars, even after J'onn said he summoned for help. John Stewart is very hasty in calling Diana a rookie he can't trust. Flash in this arc feels like a character other than the one introduced in Superman: TAS episode; 'Speed Demons'. Ignoring Kyle Rayner in favor of John Stewart kinda stomps. In Blackest Night This arc is great, I have no problem with it. But it's kind of weird to give us more about the world of Green Lantern by making the second story a trial of his for the murder of an entire planet. The Enemy Below Batman gave the team basic ideas they should have thought of on their own. Deadshot shocking Superman out of commission for a few moments by electric device on the sewer entrance lid was way too fast, and the shock was far weaker than all the power jolts Superman endured in his own series. Man, they weakened Superman a lot for this season starting with the third story. Deadshot escapes everyone? Really? I always wanted to know how Batman terrifies people into submissive replying mode, but I guess the writers couldn't really think of anything.
