"The Hunt" Talkback

#1 Posted by Mojo65 (137 posts) - - Show Bio

So thoughts on the most recent episode guys?

I personally thought it was quite good, hightlights for me were M'gann and Dicks little moment, that was some cute friendship stuff and it showed M'gann's character growth. And Arsenal just generally being really competent and really awesome.

Mongul Vs Black Beetle was cool from the bit we saw, I wonder who will win in the end there. Though I suspect that while Mongul could beat Black Beetle, Green Beetle and some other Reach minions will show up to help him beat Mongul and he'll be caged by next episode.

The Light is now fully screwing the Reach over and it is glorious.

speaking of glorious, Godfrey had a great moment telling off the Negotiator like that.

Dick at the end though, while I can see why Arsenal on the team is problematic butttt he did just save all their lives, more importantly he went about it in a horrible way, turning a bunch of potential new recruits against them.

i thought is was pretty good, i liked seeing the runaways in battle............the kid who teleports is awesome (reminds me of nightcrawler). i'm inerested to see how they tie it all together.

now it seams like the people are despiting the reach as they started to look at the justice league with caution..

The light's plan may be that they already have an alternative alrdeady?

Hmm..i can't follow what they've been up to.

Damn it..

It does look like the Light is very smart in pretending to work with Darkseid, the Reach and they even convinced Mongul to visit the earth.

I hated seeing Arsenal kicked off the team. He's accomplished more than the entire team put together this season. Why kick him out?

@TheCannon: You are right on this point but two times he put he's team in danger cause of his inside demons..but i would've rather had nightwing took him to black canary's therapy session instead..

Random thoughts:

*Aw, I was hoping the Runaways would get cool costumes from Luthor. Pity we couldn't see Static in his longcoat getup.

*The Reach Ambassador should win the award for 'Most Annoying Animated Character Ever'. Seriously, his propaganda's about as subtle as a brick to the face.

*It was cool to see Arsenal in action; and him freeing Mongul was a smart plan. Red Arrow was one of my favorite characters last season, and his clone donor's no exception

*And it was sad to see Nightwing do so little - again.

Overall, it was cool to see the plot moving into action, and at least Mongul had some use beyond just being a one-shot villain. This was a satisfactory episode, and while it wasn't exactly stellar, considering the number of episodes left - anything that moves the storyline forward is welcome.

This was a cool episode. But the only nitpick I have is that this is possibly the only time in the season where Nightwing kicks some ass and he does it all offscreen :(

Awesome episode! I just wish the team and the Runaways would stay together! There's so many of them they could make their own league! Also when Arsenal went towards the containment fields I was thinknig "Come on Roy, just release the heroes, you're not that crazy". Aaaaand he frees Mongul! :D Black Beetle's fight against Mongul was awesome! Hopefully Aqualad, Wally and Artemis rejoin the team!

I thought the exact same thing. I was hoping that, since the rest of the team was captured, they'd throw the spotlight on Nightwing a bit. As "leader," he's taken the role of Batman more than just in that capacity in terms of plot; he also has less screen time and doesn't really feel as though he's apart of the team. I would love to see just one nice fight scene with him, but who knows with only three episodes left..

That said, I enjoyed this episode very much. Arsenal certainly seems to have a hot streak though, he's very volatile and I like that about him, but I'm not sure how much I buy it. I feel as though he attributes most of his actions to "the pod" incident and it's getting rather redundant, I think.

Also, it seems that the show is going to have more than a few loose ends by the time the series ends (assuming CN doesn't by some miracle renew it), the most notable of which is all this Apokolips technology and Godfrey... I would've loved to see a grand interpretation of Darkseid as a major villain for a season.

Just as an aside, is anyone else as 'turbed' that the connection between Deathstroke and Dick was lost in this interpretation? :/

@blackclaw I think we'll see an awesome fight scene with slade and nightwing towards the end of the season. Hopefully they purposely put nightwing on the back burner for a huge payoff which would be him against death stroke IMO. I feel like they were gearing up for darkseid to be the big bad next season. Which we obviously won't see but I am hopeful that the light and reach storylines will get wrapped up at least. In general I think everyone needs to quit hating on the show until we see how it actually ends. There's still 3 episodes left and lots of time to wrap up the current storylines. I see a lot of posts about arsenal and him getting kicked off the team. IMO it's awesome!! How can you complain that they just set up the outsiders?? The only complaint I think is relavant is the fact that we aren't getting another season. I like how the comic book "started" the invasion storyline. But I am disappointed that it too is over. And kinda ticked that they pushed off the legacy game until September. But I'm sure it's worth the wait. With all that being said..I look foward to the last 3 eps.

I loved this episode great to see the "Runaways" get more screen time.

G. Gordon stole the episode with one scene.

Nightwing needs more screentime. Other than that, this was a really good episode. I enjoyed Miss Martian and Nightwing's bonding moment. Arsenal was badass and the Runaways did a great job. I think the Runaways need to be brought into the comics (other than Static). Does anybody know if the other 3 characters have ever been introduced in comics? They were all in Super Friends, but with slight changes. Like Asami is based off a character named Samurai, but their is a gender change. I think that if there is a young justice comic spin off, the Runaways should be brought into it.

Arsenal gets his own team

#16 Posted by BlueLantern1995 (2448 posts) - - Show Bio

I felt horrible seeing Arsenal kicked off team and I wouldn't have done it myself. But still it was the right call.

I liked it but them teasing us with Nightwing's only fight scene taking place off panel sucks

also I don't like the Runaways as a team name....why not the Outsiders

solos what?
#21 Posted by BlueLantern1995 (2448 posts) - - Show Bio

Arsenal didn't free the team. The Runaways did. Arsenal helped but they alone can get credit. Arsenal has not accomplished that much.

#22 Posted by PassionFlower (963 posts) - - Show Bio

I really liked the episode myself. I really enjoyed the Runaways and seeing G Gordon going in.

#23 Posted by jasontodd7 (110 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheCannon: he wasn't really solo you know..he had the "misfits" with him and the previous experience with black bettle in lexfarms..

But he did manage pretty impressive things and the kick out wasn't really the best solution..

i guess that the writters wanted to live some doors opened for a possible season 3 when static, el dorado, samurai girl , long shadow and arsenal will formed they're own team..maybe a red hood joining too.

G. Gordon pretty much owned this episode.

#25 Posted by nmiller1939 (46 posts) - - Show Bio

Can we just acknowledge that Dick didn't really kick Roy off the team? He told him that he's off the team until he proves he can be a team player. That sounds more like a suspension to me. Roy decided to leave.

#26 Posted by pokemonmon (47 posts) - - Show Bio

@nmiller1939: exactly. he doesnt want him off the team. just to be a team player

That could be a good idea and Nightwing could guide them.
