It's the end of an era, friends. This morning, Cartoon Network aired the last episodes of its current DC Nation programs, Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series. Both are widely loved by the comic book community and, despite a more than vocal showing of support, CN has stood firm in their choice not to renew the shows.
It's easy to rant about this massively terrible decision, especially since it's allegedly based on lackluster merchandise sales, and neither was even given a fair chance in that regard. Complaining won't do us any good at this point, and while there's certainly some hope of these shows one day returning, it sadly doesn't seem likely.
Let's go for something drastic here. Instead of using the internet to rant, let's use it for some positive reflection. Below I've provided seven questions that'll hopefully make you think about the good times you've had with these shows. Go ahead and answer them for either program or even both if you're feeling up for it.
- Why did you love the show?
- What was your favorite episode?
- Who was your favorite character?
- What was your favorite scene?
- What was your favorite fight?
- What was your favorite line?
- What was your favorite joke?
For just this moment, try not to be sad the shows are gone. Instead, be happy they happened.
