When writers basically ignore Jason Todd’s existence and skip straight to Tim Drake after Dick in tv-shows and cartoons

When people include all other Robins but leave out Jason Todd in posts on tumblr

When people say Jason was a bad Robin

Unfairness towards Jason Todd


Let me start this shit off proper and state that your boy don’t usually indulge in nerd shaming and the like, but yo… if you fucks with comics or TV or animated shows or animated comic book TV shows and you ain’t watched both seasons of Young Justice multiple times, I can tell you right now, this shit ain’t for you. I ain’t offended if you close your browser right now, I’m offended you have deprived yourself one of the best put together comic book shows (animated or live action) eva. Eva? Fo eva, eva? Eva, fam.

Young Justice mined some of DC Comics’ best lore, but also created a wholly new story that had tons of characters, ridiculous diversity, the promotion of obscure characters — it shined with new characters and had a complex and sprawling story line with a crazy long game. Between the Justice League proper and the ever-growing roster of Young Justice members, it is possible that if you ask 5 people who their favorite character on the show was, you might get five different answers. But check it, if we talking a top 5, everybody’s list, AYEBODY, better have Kaldur’ahm aka Da Blonde Bowlcut Soldier aka Aqualad the Young Atlantean Gawd on their list.

1). “They call me Mister Perfect, cuz I’m simply, without error. You couldn’t weather my endeavor, I’m too cleva. Don’t ever bring it to my squad, boy ya know better.”

Aqualad was a leader, yo. Actually, THE leader. Not because he won an election. Not because he was the popular kid in his graduating mysticism class. And not because this dude can traverse any terrain without wearing shoes. It’s because this muthafucka woke up (underwater) like this. Leaders aren’t created yo, they’re born…with gills. If you thought that Dick “I ain’t quite put the Blue Hawk on my chest yet” Grayson was gonna be the natural leader because dude got his training straight from the strategy gawd Batman, himself, you ain’t dumb for that assumption. You just dumb wrong on this. Robin? He tried it. He tried to slip the water-bearers on his back…shit didn’t fit though.

Kaldur may not have been tutored by the best detective in the world, but he was too busy being Hand of the King down in Atlantis. Dude was built for the big stage. Three episodes in, this cat out here handing out orders like General Patton. Aqualad is the leadership we need. What’s it going to take to get him and Zatanna on the 2016 ballot?

Superman Throughout Animation


So we’ve been getting hints for a while now, but WB hasn’t done much in the way of advertising – someone needs to retrain their marketing department. This means we DC Nation fans need to make up the difference.

One of Giancarlo Volpe’s (previously) secret projects has been revealed to be JLA: Trapped in Time and is set for release on Tuesday, January 21st as a Target Exclusive DVD (running time is estimated about 52 minutes).

Other DC Nation and Avatar: The Last Airbender familiar names on this project include: Jason Spisak, Grey DeLisle, Dante Basco, Jack DeSena, Kevin Michael Richardson, Laura Bailey, Diedrich Bader, Frederik Wiedmannand Lynell Forestall.

Despite the unclear cover art, this is brand new content helmed by our much beloved Ceiling Giancarlo. I hope I’ll see fellow Fanterns picking up the DVD at a nearby Target this coming Tuesday.
