ugh. This show seems like it might be cute and what not, but im not going to be able to enjoy it. It seems like its going to be a Tiny Titans show, which is fine, but it should in no way replace the amazingness that was Young Justice. If they had just continued on with the old Teen Titans show, that would have been better than this.

... TV executives should not be allowed to make ANY choices when it comes to per-existing franchises. they arent fans, and dont get what they should be doing.

that being said, this seems like it should appease SOME audience.

this and Hawkeye are the only marvel books with my attention. I have a mild interest in Age of Ultron, but im totally fine with waiting for the trade and reading it then.

Yet another instance of current DC trampling the original ideas for no reason.

The whole point of Batman inc was to have Batman's everywhere. not JUST in Gotham. So it shouldnt matter if Batwing or NightRunner cant make it to Gotham. The point is that they wear the Bat symbol and keep finger on the pulse of crime in their section of the world.

but NOOOOO. Now, Batman Inc. is about having a Batman Justice League, and any member who cant always be in Gotham to serve the league should be written out.

Why do we need another Bat in Gotham? Batman, Red Robin, Nightwing, Jason, Batgirl, Batwoman... we have an extended grouping right there. IF Batwing really needed to stop being Batwing... there shouldnt be a replacement, because if he stays in Gotham hes over kill, and if he goes to Africa it defeats the other initial purpose of Batman using people who knew the very well the place they would be protecting.

.... the better option would have been NOT to write David as uncomfortable, and just leave him out of crap that doesnt concern him. This is dumb. And i hope to god this isnt DC trying to serve the Batman Beyond future. Because as cool as it is, that timeline is full of plot holes and character flaws in relation to the comics.

@Nightwing_Beyond: Thanks. But the other thing was I was waiting for an official statement. Yes I saw the news on Bleeding Cool as many others did. I was hoping DC would issue a statement as they did about Tony Daniel taking over the writing for the arc. We're not ones to run with rumors. Yes there is a benefit in doing so as when the rumor is true, you report on it right away. I'm just not one to speculate on things without facts or an official statement from the creators or publishers.

but CBR confirmed it using Fialkov's blog

DC hasnt even officially talk about his departure and probably never will

They confirmed it AFTER they ran it. What Tony is saying is he would rather wait for it to be official in some capacity than run something because everyone else did, and then retract it later. Its called Journalistic Integrity. If CV posted every bit of rumor as soon as they heard about it, they would have to constantly redact their statements, which in turn would lead to us readers taking everything reported with a grain of salt.

hows abouts you guys let the teacher turned editor of a very successful website do his thing without the amateur critiques? There's a reason Tony gets the sensitive mail stuffs from the big names and you dont.

...as for the actual story: Its seeming like DC isnt really interested in what the fans want anymore on the creative end. Since the N52 started, there have been all kinds of weird debacles with Gail and Liefeld and whoever else. They keep making these creative decisions that make NO SENSE, and it seems like its simply because they like having a certain few fellas in the "boys club" fat and happy with work. We are lucks (so far) that guys like Johns and Snyder are amoung the blessed, but politely screwing over every writer who isnt in the club is gonna bite them in the @$$ down the line...

There is no logical reason for Young Justice to be going off the air. This coming from someone who hates it as much as he loves it. Its making unnecessary changes to my favorite characters, and utilizing characters who will probably NEVER be utilized again... and its beautiful.

... the way Arsenal was? There's no way we wouldnt have had Red Hood and the Outlaws at some point. no way.

Logical reason #1: The merchandise did not sell as much as CN wanted, but I do agree we could have totally gotten an episode of Red Hood and the Outlaws. The question is however, who would be Roy? Arse the original Roy with a cybernetic arm, or Red Arrow the clone of Roy who actually uses trick arrows.

Merchandise should not trump popularity. It was a hugely popular show. Logically, the best way to handle that would have been freemium game apps and licensing out the merch rights to other places so they (Cartoon Network. DC/WB. Whoever) dont have to deal with the loss. Its just one of those things where the long term reward would have been worth selling less toys for a couple seasons.

I cant decide which Roy would have been better. Probably Arsenal... but wouldnt it have been a sweet twist to use both of them? Just riffin with each other and tag teaming better than anyone in the DCU, guess we'll never know...

someone at DC doesnt seem to get that Rob Liefeld kills books. now they're blaming the book for his failure?

grrr...

Them as a couple is too.. obvious for me. When the possibiity was with Batman and/or Aquaman, it was kinda cool to think that the MAIN guy didnt get the main girl. Cuz thats how teen drama's work.

But now, here we are. IDK i hope they dont last. At some point, they would kind of be unstoppable with their like mindedness.
