The DC cartoons, Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond etc.
Well, watching the DCUA has pretty much satisfied my DC needs, and most of the time I'm never disappointed.
As much as I love the UU, I have to agree with Baxter. I used to friggin' love the old DC cartoons. They were awesomeness at its best.Baxter said:Animated DCU. Remember the Darkseid episodes of Superman? Remember the continuity (in a cartoon! Amazing!) of the original Batman toon? And Batman Beyond was nothin short of perfect with its Mr. Freeze episode. I like the Ultimate Universe, but I love the Animated DCU.
EDIT: Shouldn't this really be a poll?
Teen Titans is alot of fun. And it has The Brotherhood of Evil nowBass said:I just posted how I felt about the Justice League Unlimited Cadmus story arc, which I just finished watching today.
I'm sorry, but there is no contest at all, in anyway whatsoever.
The Timmverse is far, far superior to the Ultimate universe. It plays with virtually all the same themes as the Ultimate universe - superheroes as weapons, mass-produceable, superheroes versus the government, etc - and does so wonderfully.
No contest at all. Timmverse everytime.
From "On Leather Wings" in the original Batman TAS all through to Justice League Unlimited's "Destroyer" finale of the fifth season, it's been gold (with some hiccups here and there). Nothing comes close.
Teen Titans for me next. Can't wait.
The Overlord said:I have to say DCUA as well, they did a better job of improving the characters. As far the UU still treats most B list villains as just thugs or turns them into total losers, while DCUA turn lame b-list villains like Mr. Freeze and Mad Hatter into tragic figures.
robje said:you're compairing a comics series with a cartoon series? that doesnt work! that's like asking which is better, pepsi or milk?
Bass said:Well, the comic and the cartoon are both set in the superhero genre, they also both deal with the same concept of taking pre-existing characters and reimagining them for a contemporary audience. It's not discussing which of the two uses sound better or which uses panel layout better. The topic of discussion is which takes preexisting characters and reimagines them better, something both storylines do, albeit in different mediums. It's perfectly fine to compare them on that basis.
Even though I haven't watched any of the DC Animated Universe, when the basis for both it and the Ultimate Universe are basically the same, it is reasonable to compare the two instead of keeping them seperate because one is a cartoon series. Why don't you think they should be compared, when they are reinventing characters from their respective universes in similar ways?robje said:Pepsi and milk are both drinkable fluids...
i think i made my point :wink:
