  1. So is no one gonna point out how Sonic just basically yeeted two kids (who also seem to be fans of him) up into the air when making his entrance?
  2. Jeez, for an episode with barely any Batman, The Man Who Killed Batman is really damn good.

  3. That's actually insanely cool, especially given they only appeared in one product near decades ago. It also means KO takes place in the same universe as Scooby Doo :v
  4. Wait, what? As in Scooby Doo and the Ghoul School? Out of all the things I expected in a crossover with a modern day CN show, I sure as hell didn't expect that.
  5. What the hell, did they really leave a full image of an unpainted Robin in for about 10 seconds?

    Episode is What is Reality btw

  6. Man, Birds of a Feather is one of the saddest episodes of B:TAS.

      I miss when Batman handled serious and relatable issues with tact and dignity.

      tbh, I wish the comics would play around more with villains reforming, or trying to at least. I love how the Penguin tried to legitimately become good, and it toyed with the idea that the high society that Bruce is apart of ruins a lot more people and turns them villainous than anyone can claim "Batman" has.

      BTAS in general I think had a tendency to give the villains relatable motivations which opened the pathway for potential reformations.  Penguin, Harley Quinn, Riddler, and Mr. Freeze all had good stories about their attempts at reformation.  And I think the comics would benefit if they took some cues for those episodes.  Outside of Mr. Freeze, Harley is the only one I think the comics have ever cared to show as "potentially good" and with the influence of things like Suicide Squad, even that's largely been mitigated to "reluctant alliance" rather than full on, earnest attempt at turning over a new leaf.

      It's really a shame since it's a rather easy way to explore different sides of the characters.  but the comics never really go for it.

      The comics did try it, once. Riddler managed to reform himself for a long while, actually becoming a friend and ally to Batman, and becoming a private detective. But DC being DC had to ruin it and reverted him back to normal.

      It's always interesting to me how DC is always reluctant to make changes to the status quo that are interesting and well thought out (Riddler reforming) but then go full steam ahead on the absolute dumbest decisions that fall apart under only the slightest of scrutiny (Cassandra Cain turning evil).

      Nightwing has to be the best one, despite being one of the most beloved characters in and out of universe, the editor of DC has been gunning for him for years.

      In what ways do you mean?  I don't keep up with Nightwing as much as I should.

      There's been a lot of attempts over the years to kill Nightwing off, basically because the editor of DC has a hate-boner for him for the longest time - this being despite the fact that in-universe, Nightwing is one of the most well-liked members of the hero community, and out of universe - he's obviously one of the most popular Bat-Family members.

      Due to that, Nightwing has survived many attempts to kill him off from fan outrage alone. I'm not sure if that same editor still works for DC, but there's been a massive bone-headed situation involving Nightwing where a highly-regarded writer was replaced iirc, and Nightwing was shot through the head in Batman 54 or so. 

      Nightwing survives the shot, but in his series, he becomes a dickhead named "Ric" who doesn't know anyone in the Bat Family, and does nothing but go on about how he's "not nightwing". No one likes it, and a lot of people just want to see the arc end already.

      "This character that is extremely well loved, important to the lore and backstory of our universe, and generally brings us lots of revenue... yeah, fukken' kill him."

  7. It's a loooong story, but basically - it's the line that ties directly into Rebirth Beyond and doesn't have many connections to the original story. Basically - all we know is that in this new Beyond future, Bruce created Brother Eye to keep the world safe, Brother Eye turned evil, leading to the Future's End storyline where Brother Eye was brainwashing and turning DC characters into cyborgs (it's a hated story from what I've heard). Terry was sent from the future to the past to stop Brother Eye before rising to power, but was too late, and died. Tim Drake (as in the normal timeline Tim) was sent back into the future (the new future that is - created after Brother Eye was stopped) to take up the mantle of Batman Beyond in the New 52 line. In this line - the world still remained more or less completely and totally devastated by Brother Eye, and Neo-Gotham is one of the few safe areas in the world, while the rest of the world is rebuilding. Later, before Rebirth, they tried to tie the original Beyond, and the new Beyond comics together, by bringing Terry back (likely due to backlash because a lot of people didn't like Beyond being made DC canon, but Terry getting gimped over hard in the process), so it was then revealed at the end of the storyline that Terry was still alive, and had been brainwashed by Spellbinder into believing he was a villain named Rewire (Rewire being a villain from Batman Beyond 2.0 - the comic line that continued the original show). Tim later snapped Terry out of his brainwashing, and Terry took up the mantle once again in the Rebirth line of Beyond comics. Not a lot of people like New 52 Beyond from what I understand, mainly due to Tim being Batman Beyond, the confused as hell world created after the aftermath of Future's End (I frankly am not sure how the world works with Future's End being there, I'm only guessing that the timeline Tim is sent into is a new timeline), and in general a lot of the retcons. Batman Beyond Rebirth is better, and is the one I've been reading, having read up to the forth arc (Target: Batman) and it's really good so far. It's still got a lot of problems though, especially with how different it is to the original canon (Joker is still alive, Tim was never turned into a Joker clone, Dick became the mayor of Bludheaven instead of retiring, Barbera is still middle-aged and still has orange hair, etc). It also covers things like Damian (who became estranged from Bruce, became jealous of Terry, and took up the League of Shadows), and some other stuff relating to main DC canon.
  8. Yeah, again, don't let that sentence stop you. There really is a lot of brilliant stuff in it, including a look into Justice Lords' Beyond (basically - the alternative world from A Better World in JL). Unfortunately, a lot of the stuff that concerns the actual B:TAS stuff is lame as hell, but the Beyond stuff, especially with how Terry plays off Dick, and a lot of the character moments are very strong, and exactly what I'd like from a Beyond continuation, especially since it did a much better job IMO of combining the classic Beyond canon with the DC comic canon without making it stick out like a sore thumb. Beyond and Beyond 2.0 also handles Terry's life in college, which is interesting in of itself.
  9. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if a hypothetical Season 4 was just a animated version of the comic continuation (Hush Beyond up to Mark of the Phantasm). The stuff that covers the regular TAS canon is fucking awful (Batman getting Batgirl pregnant being the reason why Dick can't stand him, as well as phasing out Tim a good deal), but the actual Beyond stuff is excellent, and absolutely worth the read. Rebirth Beyond is decent too, but it's frustrating that it's basically a completely different continuity which merges mainline DC into Beyond and retcons a ton of stuff, including RotJ, and Tim's brainwashing, among other things.
  10. Finally onto what's usually cited as the best episode of the show - Almost Got 'Em. I haven't seen it so this'll be good.

      Batman the Animated Series - I got the complete blu-ray for Christmas and I'm marathoning the series for the first time (it was never released fully on DVD over here until the blu-ray).

  11. It's almost insane how much better Day of the Samurai is compared to Night of the Ninja.

  12. Part of me wishes K.O was still voiced by the original VA of Kid Goku just for the irony of having Goku technically hang out with Sonic. But yeah, this looks really fun, can't wait to see more from it.
