Seeing this thread re-floated reminds me I need to watch the YJ seasons I have on DVD.

They are making the most out of no longer being on Cartoon Network. This is dark and timely as fuck while feeling like a natural continuation of the series up to this point. I'm disappointed we're only getting three episodes a week because I really want to know what comes next!

Spoiler

Three things of note:

  • I love the set-up of Batman Inc and the amount of world building they hinted at just by showing the current make-up of The Justice League.
  • Jesus Christ, the scene of Plasmus melting off Halo's face was graphic and kinda got a gasp out of me.
  • Considering Tim Curry's current state, it is kind of understandable why the recast G. Gordon Godfrey's voice.

THIS is the show that is the best representative of the DC World. Titans is more Snyder-ish, where this is more Nolan-ish, meaning that there's a much better tonal balance while still telling a strong story. It's very dark, but isn't mired in it and doesn't suffer for it. It's also stunning accurate to the comics. The first three episodes are heavily inspired by the first arc of the original Batman and the Outsider series by Mike Barr and Jim Aparo.

Spoiler

-Batman and the others ditching the League for reasons of international intervention

-All of the Markovian monarchy stuff

-Black Lightning's struggle with his powers over accidentally killing a girl

I love how modern yet classic everything works out to be.

All of the Black Lightning stuff is great. I really hope he sticks around for the duration of the season, especially if we get more Static.

I'm surprised how much of a backseat the season 2 team has taken so far, considering they were the promoted characters. That might change though just three eps in.
