What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

I am very excited. I mean, wow, that animation looks on par with what we've been seeing in the DCU straight to video movies, and this is a weekly TV series!


Nicest thing about this project is that there are no more stupid "embargos", like the ones that were neutering JLU, Teen Titans and The Batman. They don't care anymore if other versions of their characters appear in different shows simultaneously and are giving the creators free reign to use who they want. Thank you!

Can't wait for this.

I hate to be "that guy" on this issue, but this barely qualifies as Young Justice. If it weren't for Not-Arrowette, who seems superfluous if Speedy's going to be around anyway, it would just be Teen Titans 2. Why not use Secret or Empress if you're just changing Arrowette anyway? I'll still give it a shot, but is there something so wrong with Bart that they refuse to use Impulse? Heck, even Bart in the Kid Flash suit would be a step up from just another Wally.

Could go either way at this point; they said it's a "young" DCU, so they could still be on their first Flash. We don't even know if Robin is Dick or Tim (it's clearly not Jason because he's smiling). Admittedly, having Superboy and M'gann around suggests that this is Tim and Bart, but until the show starts, we won't know for sure.

Not that that's gonna stop the haters and doomsayers, of course. . .

I like the look of it! Except Superboy's... er... costume? Is that really what he's gonna wear? I mean, I'm not suggesting he go the tights, kneehigh boots and overpants route of his namesake, but a black, emblazoned shirt and blue slacks isn't really going to fool many people. Unless, of course, he's not even going to bother with the secret identity thing. Then it makes more sense, and I can respect that as a design choice. (I will admit to not knowing enough about it to remember if particular incarnations of the modern Superboy bothers with the ol' SI or not)

I'm not doomsaying. I never said it was going to suck just because they aren't doing it my way. But even if this Kid Flash's name is Bart, he has no physical characteristics to back it up. And probably not the right personality either. Bart in his prime had big brown hair, bright yellow eyes and no desire to be Kid Flash. Especially during his run(get it?) with YJ. He certainly wasn't a smirker/tinkerer. I'll need to watch it with the sound but it looks like he built or at least maintains those goggles for different purposes. What's the point of using Bart's name if you remove everything that made him unique amongst the other sidekicks/proteges?

I could go on, but I won't. Is this what it feels like to be a Geewunner?

I think this looks outstanding and I'll be watching it when it comes out. Connor's black t-shirt with the red S along with his jeans and boots has been his trademark costume for years! Does it really matter what the show is called? We know who the characters are, I don't think it matters much what it's called as long as the show is good and entertains people. That is a bit confusing regarding Wally and Dick but I guess they're using their own continuity for this so they can do whatever they want.

I say, that looks rather spiff. "Artemis" made me raise an eyebrow. What's the story there, basically smooshing Arrowette and Artemis into a composite Green Arrow/Wonder Woman protege character? There's seven JLAers and six Young Justicers, and everyone else has a direct counterpart, 'cept those two.

The jeans and T-shirt look happened when he lost his powers. By the time he got his powers back, he ended up keeping the outfit. He also had a big metal S-shield that he could wear on his arm, but he doesn't carry it around anymore (it was the Guardian's idea).

(Trivia: Superboy actually has four different costumes, but we've only seen him wear three; the original "found" leather-jacket over tights, the "upgraded" jacket & tights [a different design, with a tailored jacket], this one, and a modified version of the traditional red and blue that he got from the Legion, but refuses to wear until "he's earned it" [i.e., when Clark retires and Conner becomes the new Superman].)

So it's really a Original Teen Titans (Dick, Wally and sometimes Roy) mixed with Young Justice (Connor) mixed with current Teen Titans (M'gann) along with newbies Aqualad and Artemis? Well, that disappoints me. I was really hoping it would be Young Justice (Bart, Connor and Tim) mixed with current Titans (M'gann) along with newbies Aqualad and Artemis. I'll deal with it, like I always do, but it just threw me a bit off.

Aaaw, I would have liked it to be Bart. And Tim. And Arrowette (no secret identity yet, right? It MIGHT be Cissie!).

I'd much rather have Lagoon Boy (haha) or even Aquagirl Lorena over the new Aqualad.

What's with the dots on Wally's shoulder? It's like he's a robot or something.

The thing I'm not too fond of in Geoff's 'dark S' Connor is it took out the fun out of Karl Kesel's Kon El. Connor's so serious!

I hope Miss Martian stands out more.

Hehehe, I wonder if it will be Red Arrow who dies in the first eps, making way for Artemis?

Oooooh, who are the bad guys?!? Red Hood or a young Harley Quinn, Match or Alexa Luthor like in Legion, Inertia (gawds I hope it's him instead of a Wally villain)?

Hmm. Y'know, if they're not shying away from death, they could kill off Barry and rotate Wally out of the team. Come to that, the Crisis would make a kick-ass season finale. Bart can show up in season 2.

No idea how to force Dick to leave, though. Nobody died to make him Nightwing. Maybe Dick just stops showing up after a while, and when Robin returns he's. . . "different." The gang figures out why just in time for Jason Todd to die, and Tim shows up in season 3. . .
