    I am not a big Lobo fan at all!

    Pre-Time Skip I watched the first "season", when they had that long hiatus, and the character's dialogue and personalities really annoyed me. Particuarly Robin, Superboy and Miss Martian.

    Then I watched a few after the hiatus and it was better but still not that great.

    but between Dick being Nightwing, M'Gann being serious and Blue Beetle and Lagoon Boy joining the team I am totally on board

    well lagoon boy sucks but other than that agreed

    I'm a Lobo fan but it very much depends on how they handle him

    Self-aware overwrought pastiche versus grimdark badass

    What I'm saying is, is this a good Lobo appearance or a boring Lobo appearance

    he was a giant crazy badass but the only thing he did was get in a really cool fight and say a couple of rude things so its hard to tell

    That is also acceptable!

    I always used to like him as a Superman villain because he gets so goddamn angry when Superman beats him

    Also, I fucking love the Time-Jump, and the show was only starting to get good within like the last 6 or so episodes before it.

    But having the universe be more developed and cool shit
    like adding in Tim Drake and Barbera and having Aqua Lad be Black Manta? I'm into that. Also this HAS to be leading into new gods right?

    I hope so

    if only because I find the name glorious godfrey hilarious

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    Superboy's roid addiction was my favorite plot thread. I wish they had not resolved it (and the other secrets) in such a tidy, unsatisfying manner.

    seriously? i thought it was kind of cliche. although i do wish they would have just given him full superman powers after the time jump

    I kind of like where the show is now even though I'm not a fan of time jumps

    and there's still little things that bug me
    like Connor breaking up with Miss Martian because ANGST

    and Kaldur becoming Black Manta is kind of uncomfortable

    but I do still want to see an episode where Zatanna meets teenage John Constantine

    come on show, do this for me

    Cliche? I am not aware of too many televised cartoons with multi-episode drug addiction arcs.

    If you mean "in stories in general," there is literally nothing not generic about the show.

    I really hope
    Aqualad stays evil, rather than being a mole into the Light. I want to see a hero properly fall and turn into a total dick because his girlfriend died.

    Seriously. If it turns out he's a spy for YJ then I'll be kind of annoyed.

    I know they are tossing in a lot of characters since I had no idea who or what Lagoon boy was but a teenage John Constantine would be rather interesting

    Still I am curious what happened to Red Arrow, Artemis, and Kid Flash maybe they went off to look for Speedy

    same.

  • BedigunzBedigunz Registered User regular
    It seems kinda predictable but maybe I've just come to expect twists. That being said, seeing
    One of their teammates go off the rails and be evil would add some tension in the fights. I loved when Kaldur started screaming at Lagoon Boy, Robin, and Aquaman about Aqua Girl's death.

    Aqualad is the coolest member of the team
    him being a villain is stupid bullshit that really puts me off the show

  • mensch-o-maticmensch-o-matic Registered User regular
    aqualad going evil or not only a girl he liked but a girl who rejected him dying is the most bullshit thing i can even imagine so im hoping theres more to it than that

    not to mention that him straight up leaving the team because eeeviiiil is apparently the best the writers can come up with to shoehorn dick as the leader

    I think it's a combination of Aqua Girl dying and finding out his dad is Black Manta, especially since Aquaman kept it from him.

    Not the best way to handle him leaving, but I'm interested to see how this plays out, especially if it isn't a creative ploy to have a mole in The Light.

    i'm kind of doubting it's that simple. given how much is still left unexplained, that's probably what they want you to think!

    I am pretty sure they don't want me to think they made some stupid creative moves which mean I don't really watch the show any more

    i meant that they
    want you to think Aqualad is evil just because his ladycrush died/father is evil probably in an effort to mask what is really going on
    , not that they are making dumb decsisions.

    it is annoying in the mean time

    now that Beastboy is in it I wonder if it'll just naturally become a new Teen Titans next season

    because that would be ultra rad and awesome

    also I like how Superman and Superboy reached an Uncle/Nephew kinda relationship, entirely offscreen

    being totally serious here, watching it actually happen would have been cheesy and boring

    now that it is just A Thing it completely fits

    Yeah watching the relationships is awesome.
    Miss Martian and Superboy breaking up without having to watch it.

    Batman having more faith in Dick while Dick trains Tim

    Superman and Superboy

    Hell even Wonder Woman and Wonder Girl have a good relationship

    To be honest, I think it's kind of shitty that they just went "you know all those emotional connections between characters that existed before? Yeah, they are gone now. Here are some new ones."

    It's like, I don't want new ones

    I want you to resolve the old ones

    I liked them and do not care for your new dumb bullshit that you have now sprung on me

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Well as someone who didn't like any of the old connections

    I like the new ones a lot more

    I'm sure they will have flashback episodes to how things went down. In the last two episodes, the show
    Brought up why Aqualad was MIA and what happened with Superboy and Miss Martian

    Which is fair enough

    I am not saying you shouldn't

    I am just saying that the difference between S1 and S2 to me is very jarring and I do not like it, really

    Wish they hadn't done it, since I was really enjoying the show and now it is all different and not that good
