So I know this moment:
Is played for laughs and it really is hilarious XD I mean look at his face!
But I also find it remarkably sweet that Kilowog just completely forgot that Razer isn’t a Green Lantern.
Because, I mean, it wasn’t too many episodes ago where he wasn’t letting Razer forget.
It wasn’t so long in terms of episodes, but it’s been a pretty long time in terms of the show’s universe. The first half of the season took place over a pretty definite period of a little more than nine months.
This second half feels like it’s been even longer, just from a few little tells, mostly revealed in “Lost”:
The science director of the Guardians appears to have traveled with Zox from Oa, with no assistance from the Interceptor, meaning that it’s been at least 18 months since the mid-season finale.
We know that the Interceptor was definitely not involved in their transport because the science director was so surprised (and displeased) to see Aya still functional.
So far as we know, the Interceptor is still the only ship capable of making the trip to the Forgotten Sector in less than 18 months, and Sinestro seems to confirm this when he talks about the Interceptor being the Guardian’s most advanced prototype. It seems that without Aya’s advanced A.I., it’s impossible to control the ship effectively (See also: Lanos.)
In general, there’s been a lot more episodic exploration in this half of the season, and, much like the first season (see this semi-breakdown of the first nine months), there’s a lot of time that’s unaccounted for, and a lot of mini-adventures that could’ve happened in the interim, investigating Manhunter spottings, analyzing anti-matter waves, and what-have-you. Basically, all the space hopping their little hearts could desire.
On top of that, I am of the opinion that Zox was probably on Oa for a little while before they began the escort back to Ysmault, to work out the details of the peace treaty and the reparations owed by the Guardians.
TL;DR: It hasn’t been many episodes, but it’s been like, two years since Kilowog met Razer, and probably about a year and a half since he stopped giving him shit about being a Red Lantern, haha.
But aside from all that, it is kind of absolutely adorable that Kilowog half-forgot that a green energy source would be completely useless to Razer. HE’S PART OF THE TEAM.
True, true. Though I feel like Bruce would never willingly team up with Tony. They’re kind of opposite brands of stuck up jackasses that way. Dick!Bats, on the other hand…
Eeeeh, Disney’s “handling” of Marvel is debateable. They mostly just bought the label and left it the hell alone, wanting only its awesome movie profits (since, sadly, we all know the state of comic books themselves and their profitability on their own).
Kind of like when Hershey Foods bought the York Peppermint Patty company, or, a more recent and bigger aquisition, bought Cadbury Chocolate. They bought it and left it the hell alone, because why mess with a good thing?
Plus, DC is already owned by Warner Bros/Time Warner, and that would be a hell of a custody battle if Disney tried to buy them.
Man, I am really not sure what I think of giant ponytail Deathstroke.
Actually, I do know what I think.
I think it’s a remarkably tacky design choice in a show that normally shows an admirable sense of restraint, especially for superheroes.
Also: I am super amused that in the same week, Sinestro is voiced by Ron Perlman on GLTAS and Deathstroke appears on YJ. Because I’m a dork and, of course, Ron Perlman voiced Slade/Deathstroke in Teen Titans.
I don’t know why, but I follow DC on my facebook feed, and this just popped up. I don’t even read Justice League, but this cover caught my eye for a number of reasons. The extremely secondary reason was, “Oh cool. Cheetah’s back in the DCU. That’s pretty nifty.”
The actual reason is that this cover just fails on all the levels a cover design can fail on.
Just watch me pick this apart.
Just wait, he’s going to grow out his hair again, next. NINETIES REDUX.
This whole reboot has been a nineties redux. It’s really freaking weird. Also bad.
DC has just been making a lot of really weird, dumb decisions in the last year. The co-publishers wanted to go back to a) the comics they used to read as kids (in the 60s/70s) with none of this “Wally West” or “other legacy characters” junk (except for the ones they like! Like all them Robins.) and b) the comics they used to write in their early careers (in the — guess when — 90s) with more muscles and more gritty and WHERE IS THE GRITTY, WHAT DO YOU MEAN PEOPLE WANT FUN, RELATEABLE COMICS. THIS NEEDS MORE GORE AND BAD PLOTTING.
