Why can't any Batman show live up to TAS?

#1 Edited by comicdude23 (11399 posts) - - Show Bio

Justice League came very close, but the others sucked IMO.

  • The Batman, didn't like it at all. Too many things wrong with that.
  • Brave and The Bold, quite good, like the SA tone but didn't care that much
  • Justice League came close, but was a bit more light hearted
  • Batman Beyond came close again, but TAS had better stories IMO

Can Beware the Batman live up to it or do anything?

EDIT: Justice League didn't suck.

I agree.

Be careful with the word bugger though, in the UK it's very rude

Be careful with the word bugger, in the UK it's very rude, I don't know if Comicdude is british

I wasn't born in the UK but I live in the UK. It's offensive to me.

That's everyone's initial thoughts. But with every other Batman show, I gave it a chance. I see no reason why I shouldn't give the new one a chance.

@JohnnyWalker: LMAO. You're using a word to which you're not even sure what it means.

It does in the US, but not in the UK (I've seen this on TvTropes, I'm not even a native english speaker...) :P

@comicdude23: 'used to describe someone or something whose behaviour is in some way displeasing' straight off the wikipedia. aka annoying person. so shup up.

Dude, this is like your second or third Batman related post TODAY. There's nothing wrong with stating your opinions but you are starting to come across as obsessive and a little obnoxious. Maybe you would benefit from stepping away from the computer for a few hours.

Back to the topic. I think no show can match TAS series because for a lot of readers under 30, it was there first and original introduction to Batman via animation. Its hard to beat what you grew up with. I hope that Beware the Batman is good but I don't think it will be better.

Ok, you're probably right.

It was the first animated Batman show for a lot of people (including myself) and you never forget your first.

TAS is great but that doesn't mean no Batman show will ever be better. I thought Justice League was pretty on par with it. And The Batman had it's moments. I'm not too hopeful for Beware the Batman but hopefully it'll surrise me.

Because in TAS, Batman was an actual street character and at some points he was on the ropes. Once you start introducing super powered beings, then Batman becomes unbeatable otherwise he would be dead within the first 10 minutes of fighting an actual super powered villain.

@Wolfrazer: To be fair, I don't think that was the real reason for TAS' sucess. I mean, Batman did take on some pretty (super)-powerful characters in TAS (Clayface, Bane, Man-Bat, and Poison Ivy come to mind). Most Batman media shows Batman taking on super powered beings who are normally out of the league of a normal human.

Because most people can't see past their childhood nostalgia.

Ya but those weren't like BIG super villains, talking more along the lines of like Darksied and all them ones that have deadly powers and all that. But for the most part in TAS, Batman never took on anything huge unlike in the JL/JLU and beyond that.
