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.
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
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?
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 Wiedmann, and Lynell Forestall.
Despite the unclear cover art, this isbrand 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.
