Ironically the opposite can be said about Ultimate Spider-Man. And that's still around.

Make the connection.

Jeph Loeb WAS RIGHT.

Beware the batman is a pretty good show. I think I like it more than Young Justice because you don't need an encyclopedic knowledge of the DC universe to follow from week to week.

When I was younger, I saw this cartoon in some magazine; a bunch of marketing executives sitting around during a presentation that featured a turd in a cape.

The caption read: "It's called Captain Shit! The kids will eat it up!"

Connection made.

But you have a point. A very valid one. We, as adult comic book fans, can no longer be routinely outraged, surprised or confused when shows designed to cater to our demographic fail compared to shows intended to reach a lower common denominator.

I think it's an unfortunate truth, because a cartoon could literally shit onto the TV and kids would watch it. But it is true.

This. This big time.

Now if Beware is the worse Batman show... then there is no such thing as a bad Batman show as this is not a bad show. It's just not as good as it could be. Seems a bit rushed.

I thought The Batman was ended earlier then it should, but then it was pointed out that the creators behind it were burning out on it, hence the JL stuff.

I think a Batman show that would work would be by the YJ team or if they could, get the defunct Thundercats team on it. Set it now with the whole bat family. Batman, Nightwing, Robin, Red Robin, Red Hood, Batgirl, Huntress, Batwoman, Flamebird (Firehawk is Firestorm gal pal), Ms Bat (Black Bat is better with the pulp character), Spoiler and Katana. Maybe the Renee Question too.

This show is suffering the blahs.

The Batfamily in no man's land would suck.
