Re: DC universe cartoons thoughts

The comics are hard to get into, due to the immense nature of the medium, but once you get in its hard to stop

If anyone needs any help with it, just ask me or Sephiroth

can you claim the you prefer the cartoon more than you do comics? absolutely, your opinion. can you say certain characters that were given a fresh interpretation that breathed new life in them? yes, that happened several time. Some were even created from nothing and proved so successful they were brought into comics

but the statement you made is a complete insult into the medium. the series would not even exist if not for the comic creators who poured their brilliance ushered them and created so many of the stories that you enjoyed. Its an absurd marginalization of the creativity and effort that goes into building these characters

Seriously? That is the only difference? Its disrespect to the creators and the medium. The justice League cartoon wouldnt even not have been possible without Grant Morrison bringing the Justice League concept back to life in his huge mid 90s run. And thats just the most recent example. Hell, most Batman episodes were based on Neal Adam's legendary run along with Denny O Neil in the 70s

Nobody loves the animated series more than I do, I grew up, and to this day, watch many of them. Especially Batman The Animated Series, but I would never take credit from those who paved the way for it to happen
I never said the comics weren't important. I said some characters were used better in the series than in the comics, that can't be argued. Did I say all? No. I said some. You're taking this more series, than it actually is. When I say the only difference, I say that they're both great mediums for superheros, the only difference is the execution.

He's a terrible character because the writers don't know how to use him or most black characters for that matter. (Not calling racism, it's no different than the WWE & black wrestlers).

To be fair, I rather doubt that Henry will ever be going over Cena.

I'm sorry you had to read such crap starting out. You at least read Flashpoint: Batman right?

Also, it seems you've stuck to mostly events and for some reason the GA/GL BatB. Here are some others I highly recommend you checking out:


All-Star Superman



Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War


Batman: The Black Mirror

Re: DC universe cartoons thoughts

Still doesn't change what I said.

Eh Civil War is preference, either you like it or hate it. I personally love it as a storyline.

Re: DC universe cartoons thoughts

if you love poor characterisations and nonsensical plotlines that attempt to destroy the entire concept of superheroism in comics, then sure, yeah, its great



The Confession was a masterpiece though

Re: DC universe cartoons thoughts

Nonsensical plot lines and characterizations that destroy supeheroism in comics? I disagree.
