While the current Batman series as well as the Kyrpto series can't be called new, both shows as well as the new Legion Of Super-Heroes series all appearing on Kids-WB at the same time marks a new age of DC animation, one separate from the continuity-driven DC Animated Universe. With their first day together over with, what geek, critique, or other type of comments do they bring up in fans like us who tend to read the adventures of their comic-book counterparts?

    were any of them any good?

    I know The Batman's crap, but the preview for the new season made it look like they finally figured out how to do things.

    Krypto's a fun little show.


    The Batman is a shameful display of everything wrong in the world, though.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    There's nothing wrong with Krypto, it's just a goofy little kids show. I don't think it was ever intended to be chock full of continuity references

    Thats the thing that many people forget, is that a lot of these shows are being made for kids, who probably have never even seen these characters outside of the television.

    Now the new line of series coming out, the first movie based off of Judas Contract and such will be a different story.

    I've actually enjoyed certain episodes of The Batman. I suppose a lot of that came from the simple fact that it was a show about Batman and Batman alone, which is something I started to miss when JLU was on. Not to say JLU wasn't fan-fucking-tastic. It was just different.

    Also, The Batman's best villains are somehow the ones that BTAS did the worst. Firefly, Bane, and Catwoman are particular standouts.

    Still, lightyears removed from the quality of the DCAU.

    I really think The Batman's main problem is that they know they can't live up to TAS so they try to be different except they go way too far.

    I always wished DC would preserve the Timm-universe somehow after all the shows stopped their runs. It would make a great 'primary secondary' universe, a large and well-developed AU comparable to Ultimate Marvel.

    One comic, and who knows how long it will last? If they seriously wanted to keep the DCAU around, there would be more comics that took place in animated continuity. At the very least, there should be Animated Batman and Animated Superman monthlies. Hell, maybe Animated Flash too, since it looks like we'll never see Wally again in the regular DCU.

    Or, instead of 'animated' comics, maybe they could actually make the actual animations.

    I like some things about the Batman. The animation is quite good and the fight scenes are top notch. But it fails when it tries to do anything else.

    Yes. Example: Mr. Freeze- a masterpiece in B:TAS. A moronic filler villain in The Batman. See also the fucking joker.

    Not exactly. It's a new line of direct to dvd movies skewed towards readers, not so much the little tikes. The first movie (I think) is supposed to be based on the Judas Contract, with Wolfman involved in the production.

    EDIT - Heres the link

    You have the comics to compare TAS to.

    Now, if I was eight, and I hadn't seen TAS or read comics or anything, yeah I'd most likely enjoy it

    Episode #51 - The Joining, Pt. 1
    Original Airdate - Unknown

    John Jones, a new detective in Gotham, hints that he may know Batman’s secret. Batman must uncover this mysterious figure’s true identity and whether he is a friend or a foe. The answers prove shocking.

    Episode #52 - The Joining, Pt. 2
    Original Airdate - Unknown

    Gotham faces its biggest threat ever – an alien invasion. Determined to save his city on his own, Batman learns even the greatest heroes must sometimes rely on a team.

    I guess they're going to follow up on the popularity of JLU with their own take on the Justice League.

    Does this mean theyre going to do the white martians again? Or Thangarians? What other major agressive alien race is there in the DCU? Bobgorilla is right, that IS redundant.

    There's a race of kryptonian-like people whose weakness is lead instead of kryptonite. Doxamites or dolamites or something.
