Comic Book Question of the Week Results: Save a TV Show

Did Young Justice remain the most popular or did one of Marvel's animated shows grab the most votes?

Being a fan of a comic book TV show ain't easy. We've been blessed with so many topnotch programs revolving around or favorite fictional characters. But, this often comes as a blessing in disguise. Despite these shows being superb, networks tend to have different business objectives in mind and then poof! The show we love is killed, obliterating our hopes and dreams of seeing certain stories unfold.

This Tuesday I asked you all to vote to save one of these deceased shows, and one show blew past the rest. Taking 45.8% of 345 votes, Young Justice won and is now known as the show Comic Vine would save -- you know, if we had the power to do so.

What would you want to see in a third season?

"Young Justice won? I totally didn't expect that," said no one ever. Cartoon Network's DC show features a wide variety of characters has been hugely popular for quite some time now. With an emphasis on character relationships and elaborate plots, Young Justice has brought happiness to countless viewers on Saturday mornings. But now after two seasons it's no more... and it left us with a massive tease: Darkseid. While I think Young Justice is good fun and all, I was very torn over my vote. I adore Spectacular Spider-Man, but ultimately, I gave Green Lantern: The Animated Series. The show was on a ridiculously amazing roll and had so much potential for great stories down the road (Blackest Night, Sinestro Corps War, etc).

Did you vote for Young Justice and if so, why? If not, which show did you want to win? Here's the results of the poll.

  • Young Justice: 45.8%
  • Spectacular Spider-Man: 16.2%
  • Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes: 13.6%
  • Wolverine and the X-Men: 11.0%
  • Green Lantern: The Animated Series: 9.0%
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars: 2.6%
  • Transformers: Prime: 1.7%

Will i get attacked for saying i have never watched Young Justice?

Posted by Lvenger

I thought YJ would get the biggest percentage so I used my vote for another Weismann project; The Spectacular Spider-Man. Glad to see it was in 2nd place.

Posted by CitizenJP

Wow. Landslide for Young Justice! I can't believe they left season 2 on such an epic cliffhanger too. I mean come on, man!

Posted by Mr. Messy Face

I basically expected those same results but with Green Lantern and Avengers switched. lol

Posted by landau_corinthian

Young Justice was just okay. Spectacular Spider-Man is probably the best on-screen adaptation of Spidey ever. Cancelled too soon.

Posted by clemj

@landau_corinthian: both were cancelled too soon

I just caught up on it. Worth watching! Usually lacks a little something when you don't have the week to week anticipation, just keep that in mind if and when you watch!

I miss the Spectacular Spider-man theme song, most of all.

Yes yes you will now where did I put my ban hammer? lol

Posted by TommytheHitman

I must admit while I didn't vote for it I expected Green Lantern to be higher in rank. Also it's been a while since I last watched Wolverine and the X-Men, should probably crack open that first season.

Not surprised. I am somewhat surprised how low Clone Wars was ranked.

Edited by Mezmero

Feels like people are still flying a little too close to the sun in regards to Young Justice. To me that show is just yet another really good show from the DCAU in a long line of good to great animated series from DC. Spider-Man has had plenty of good cartoons too though I admit that Spectacular is probably the best one I've seen. Avengers have never been given a good series or animated feature film until EMH. We may never get another good Avengers cartoon ever again where as there's a chance we'll still get DC and Spider-Man cartoons that are at least decent if not really great. I don't agree with the results of the vote but I accept that nobody wants their favorite comic characters taken off the air.

This could help to save it if everyone did this. It's all about sending in letters to the network

no, but you might want to see it.

Posted by pacewun

I missed out on the voting but Avengers and Young Justice were great. Avengers was probably the best show ever that brought comic storylines to the screen without taking it too literally. Young justice was good but the scheduling of the show and awkward breaks during storylines lines did not help!

Posted by The Average Bear

I can't believe GL:TAS or YJ got cancelled for TTG!. Wow, that was a lot of acronyms

Exec 1:"Hey, let's kill off some fan favorites to bring back a show we had a long time ago! But hm... how do we make it new and fresh?"

Exec 2: "Chibi them? People will go crazy over their chibi cuteness and aw! Think of the dolls we'll sell!"


Exec 3: "Right after we show Darkseid? And before Green Lantern reaches its potential?"

Exec 1: "Yes. I want to see them cry"

@Mucklefluga: by the time I respond to your post you'll be dead.

YJ deserved it's win. Kinda disappointed to see Transformers Prime to be in last place even though it's amazinfg

Posted by Beast_in_the_Shadows

I didn't vote because i was hoping you guys would add a spot to vote for the Thundercats reboot. Tho out of those shows I would have voted for either Spectacular of Earth's Mightiest. They were both great shows that did a good job of translating the source material to the tv medium.

Tho I am usually a DC supporter, Young Justice just didn't work for me. It's production values were great and it had a good team behind it, But for me it was lacking when it came to story. A lot of the foreshadowing was very blatant and most the characters were rather flat. True with such a big cast, you can't flesh them all out, but still their most developed characters had some pretty glaring flaws for me. Lastly I just didn't like a lot of the liberties they took with the source material, just reminded me about how DC had changed everything I liked about all the characters I liked with the reboot. However, with all the problems I had with it, I still fell it deserved better treatment than CN gave it. It's more or less the same thing they did to Symbionic Titan and Thundercats. I guess in that regard YJ was lucky to even get a second season considering how CN seems to drop their best stuff right away.

Clone Wars has had 5 seasons. It's gotten its chance to tell its stories, and it was wonderful. These other shows were cut off as they were approaching their prime.

Posted by bloggerboy

Oh if only threads like this or Kickstarter were around when Spider-Man: The Animated Series was cancelled. And I actually liked the ending that show had.

@Beast_in_the_Shadows: Once a poll is created it cannot be altered. The only option would be to delete it and create a new one.

I'm really surprised that Transformers Prime got so little votes.

Spectacular Spidey > Young Justice (Overly Melodramatic Teenage Soap Opera)

Posted by RavenVice01

I'm glad our fellow users know a good TV show we have one. Young Justice had more potential than Green Lantern and would have drawn a lot more attention but now we are stuck with a lame version of Teen Titans and the impending Beware the Batman. Hopefully this Batman series won't be as bad as Batman Brave and the Bold.

@CitizenJP: maybe they'll make a young justice animated film to conclude everything? I'd be okay with that if they can't bring back the show.

Posted by saoakden

I voted Young Justice because one of the ending and two, I think it was getting really interesting. It was a great show with a good cast of characters.

Posted by Blackmoonrose13

@Mucklefluga: No well I wont I just will put you infront of a tv and make you watch them mind you will be very comfy

It would be really cool to see a Young Justice version of Flash Point focused around the return of Wally West after he was removed from existence at the end of season 2.

Posted by SuperDoahBoy

@Beast_in_the_Shadows: Glad to see I'm not the only one who didn't like CN's treatment of the Thundercats reboot.

@blackcobalt: I also felt the same way when I heard about Clone Wars ending. I got a better shake than most other shows.

@RavenVice01: I'm far from a fan of Batman, but I actually liked The Brave & The Bold when I gave it a shot. It didn't carry itself as serious as some of the other shows but it wasn't that bad.

OMG that would be amazing. A good idea too. It could wrap up those loose ends nicely in an epic flick! :O

Posted by SuperDoahBoy

I guess I'm one of the only few people that didn't look at Young Justice's last episode as a total cliffhanger, yeah they could continue the story with the way it ended but it's not like they left a bunch of loose ends to be tied up. And I know I can't be the only person that wasn't surprised to see that Darkseid had some sort of hand in what was going down.

Posted by SuperDoahBoy

@CitizenJP: What loose ends?

Edited by Kalisto

I miss Spectacular Spiderman theme song. It's like...the best theme song ever. (EMH had good one too)

I'd save YJ. I really liked the first season alot. The second one was good though not as great as first one but I think it's because they made the cast too big and they weren't able to focus on all the characters properly. Now I'll never see more of Tim and Cassie.

Posted by CitizenJP

@SuperDoahBoy: I guess I should rephrase that as, "I JUST WANT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!" ;P

Posted by Pokeysteve

Didn't vote but if I did I would have voted for Young Justice.

Posted by SuperDoahBoy

@CitizenJP: I'm sure we would all like to see what happens next! I was just wondering if I missed something cause more than a few people are calling the ending a cliffhanger while I felt that they pretty much tied up every loose end there was. The only thing I can think of as a loose end is what happened to Wally, but most of us comic readers have a pretty good idea what happened to him so it's not really a loose end.

Which is confirmed as its last season. So, it's got one foot in the grave.
