Default Re: DC Nation

I watched the premiere of DC Nation and found myself enjoying it. No big surprise when it comes to Young Justice, as I really liked the first Season. The second season premiere was very strong and very interesting. I kept expecting a callback to Kids' Stuff from Justice League Unlimited, but never saw one.

What was surprising was how much I enjoyed Green Lantern. I thought I would find the "3D" animation to be off-putting, but it worked okay for me. I think a large part of that is because so much of the episode took part in space. Still, the biggest surprise was that I didn't mind the Red Lanterns. I've gotten very crotchety in my old age and have taken a "back in my day" old man approach to most of the new superhero storylines these days. So, without having read any of the issues, I've already pre-judged the new Lantern mythos as bullshit.

That being said, the Red Lanterns were okay. Learned next to nothing about them, other than they like killing Green Lanterns and that might be the secret to me liking them so far.

My daughters and I really liked the shorts acting as bumpers. They were cute, funny and silly. I approve. I am definitely tuning in next week.

That was one of the best uses for Captain Marvel I've ever seen. (Plus I generally like their implementation of him in this series.)

Why this touch me so much? Not only because they are awesome heroes, who are undeservedly unrecognized. No, I got emotional because of Dwayne McDuffie, their creator. He had died earlier this year due to complications from heart surgery.

He also was one of the creators of the Milestone Universe, a too-short-lived family of titles from the DC Universe. Yes, they were "minority" heroes and that was the gimmick, but more importantly they were really well-created characters.

McDuffie was also an instrumental part of the Justice League Unlimited, the highly regarded DC animated series before Young Justice. I saw this cameo as a nod towards him for his work.
So, I forgot to mention when I talked about the latest episode of Young Justice that we saw Rocket make another cameo. I watched this right after watching Justice League: Doom, which had a nice tribute to Dwayne McDuffie.

Well, there are some rumors that either Static or Rocket may be joining YJ. Personally, I'm hoping for Rocket.

If this were a real show I would watch the shit out of it. The characterizations are adorable and the animation, though simple, is very subtle. It's only the first short, but I think we have another Faust Home Run.

Now this is something I think is interesting.

Ms. Marvel gets a promotion!

Quote:
Carol Danvers began her fictional life as a supporting character in the first Captain's adventures, eventually gaining a costume and powers similar to his, and getting her own book in 1977's Ms. Marvel. Since then, she's also gone by the names Binary and Warbird, and made the majority of her appearances in Avengers books. Since the Brian Michael Bendis-scripted era of the franchise began with 2004 storyline "Avengers: Disassembled," Ms. Marvel has been a prominent member of the team and probably the publisher's most prominent non-mutant female character, and recently starred in her own comic from 2006-2010, a series which lasted 50 issues, about twice as long as her original, late-70s book.

At Wondercon today, Marvel Comics announced that the Captain Marvel character is returning to comics, Ms. Marvel is getting a new costume, and the company will once again have a solo title starring a female character after months without one. And it was all the same announcement: Carol "Ms. Marvel" Danvers will become the new Captain Marvel in the pages of a brand-new Captain Marvel ongoing comic written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and drawn by Dexter Soy.
But I would guess, as with everything else Captain Marvel and Ms Marvel related, it will be quietly discontinued after a little while. But for now I'm happy with it and I may even check it out when it's released.

I read about that yesterday at DC Women Kicking Ass, and it took me awhile to realize they were talking about the Marvel character. I got Carol Ferris (Star Sapphire and head of an aircraft company) and Linda Danvers (silver age Supergirl) mixed up and became thoroughly confused. That looks nothing like the Big Red Cheese!

You're probably right about the likelihood of discontinuity. This probably has a lot to do the need to use the Captain Marvel trademark periodically. Maybe it will take off and stick around. Not every bold new change ends up getting retconned.

It's a thing for Kiddo. Having 5 sets of grandparents and doting aunts (who didn't have time to make Easter baskets this year) has it's privileges I guess. Not a ton of money, but more than I have.

It's weird how DC keeps making missteps in live action movies, while excelling at animated series.

As a corollary, Marvel keeps making missteps in animation, while excelling at live action movies.
