Look at Fox's Avengers series...no Iron Man, no Thor, no Captain America, no hope.

That show had no hope primarily because it sucked. Besides, Hank Pym (in any costume) is cooler than Iron Man will ever be.

Of course, I knew what you meant. I agree.

ETA good point, JHeaton. I was trying to think of an example, but I couldn't.

Well, you know, Static wasn't exactly the best known character in the industry, and yet Static Shock is going into its fourth season. I think any character or group of characters can be made to work, given the right script.

My biggest fear in a LSH animated show is that they'd have it emulate the ghastly (to my grown-up, never-quite-got-anime eyes) new Teen Titans show.

I've watched Teen Titans a couple of times (because it airs before JL) and I only like the girl titan who sulks a lot.

I only like the title sequence. Much better than that of Justice League. (See? On topic!)

Hello, people. As one who is fairly new to the DC Universe (i'm Marvel all the way- Fantastic Four forever!!) can anyone give me a bit of a backstory on Luthor and Savage? On the animated show, they are definetely two of the coolest villians but I know so little about them. Are they in the comics too? And what's up with Lex and Lois? *shrugs* Please help the rookie!

Okay Seyi, I'll give it a shot.

Lex Luthor is known primarily as Superman's greatest foe. He was
a billionaire who staged a terrorist act to draw out Superman. Supes
then arrested him, which caused Lex to dedicated his life to destroying
the Man of Steel. Recently, Lex became President of the US.

As for the Lex & Lois relationship, they actually dated in the comics.
Lois then found out that he is a villian. I think there is still some attraction
to each other.

Vandal Savage was a Cro-Magnon caveman who gained heightened intellegence and immortality when a metor crashed near his home. I think
he is primarily known as a JLA & JSA villian.

Apologies if any of this is incorrect.

According to this, Dakota Fanning is providing the voice of an unspecified character next season in an episode focusing on Wonder Woman. I don't know if it will be Wonder Girl, because I'm pretty sure I read that she'd be on the next season of Teen Titans, and they probably wouldn't want to include the two characters in seperate continuities. I could be mistaken about this though, of course. My first guess was that she would play Devastation, even though she's not a very well-known character. But I think Ares created her, and it's been confirmed that he'll be appearing this season as well, and I'm guessing that the episode he appears in and the one with Dakota (which was also described as a Wonder Woman spotlight) will be the same one. Speculation is fun. :0)

If you keep going past that story there's mention of a possible Krypto series. Is this some new superhero I'm not aware of, or are they, yikes, talking about Superman's dog?

I wondered how much of this is going to see the light. Like someone said last year we had news abour characters appearing and then nada! Before you say a "certain celebrity" has signed on, I suggest be caution of such news. Until we get an official word from the Timm or some of the writers themselves, most is still speculation.

I think too much news can be a bad thing. Why are all this stuff coming out so fast?

Is it too much to hope that this is the long-awaited and eagerly-anticipated return of the legendary Space Canine Patrol Agents?

Actually, I'm thinking that Comics Continuum learned about all the casting information at one time, but are just releasing news about one character/actor a day as individual items, so they can stretch it out for as long as possible and fill their daily story quota.

Never thought of that, BUD'nLOU! You're probably right.

IIRC, there was "Streaky" the Super-cat, and a monkey, as well. I would like to see them, even if only for a joke episode.

Yep, Streaky the Super-Cat, which got its powers from X-Kryptonite; Beppo the Super-Monkey (an experimental animal launched by Jor-El before Krypto); Comet the Super-Horse (actually a centaur under a curse--*long* story) and Proty the Protean (shapeshifter alien.) They, along with Krypto the Super-Dog, formed the Legion of Super-Pets.

Ok, just saw a repeat of that episode where Amazo makes his first appearance and I noticed something odd. Did anyone else notice when the cops were fighting Amazo, one cop actually jumps from the ground onto Amazo's back? That's a ten-foot jump! Talk about latent superpowers.

Hey Vermicious, them's fightin' words! The Super-Pets rock!

I keep hoping DC Direct will bring out figures of Beppo, Comet and Proty to go along with the Krypto and Streaky that came with the Superboy and Supergirl two-pack. That would almost make up for the crappy Mon-El and Brainy figures.

Topic? I finally saw part 1 of "Hearts and Minds" Saturday night. I never much cared for Despero but that was a pretty good ep. And any episode with Kilowog is cool in my book. I just wish the next time they show the GL Corps they include my favorite GLs: Flodo Span and Mogo!

Question. When the heck did the Oliver Queen's episode air?
I've read about him showing up even before the show aired in canada and I don't recall missing an episode. So, what's up with that?

I don't believe Oliver Queen has ever appeared on Justice League, though the King of Kasnia (from "Maid of Honor") was wearing his beard.

Also, there's one season two episode that hasn't been aired, the epic three-parter "Starcrossed", which deals with Hawkworld invading Earth. Rumors suggest that Cartoon Network will be airing it sometime in February.

From Comics Continuum:

Sources have confirmed for The Continuum that plans are for the third season of Cartoon Network's Justice League animated series to be called Justice League Unlimited. The season opener will likely be titled "Initiation."
