Toxic Character Leads to DC Nation's Four Month Hospitalization

A major gaff from the Cartoon Network almost exposed toxic character Stephanie Brown to millions of innocent children yesterday, but iTunes apparently didn't get the memo.




This morning, iTunes users got a surprise as the episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice that were to air yesterday on Cartoon Network became available to download and watch. As a result, both episodes are now available on various torrent and other sites to be viewed and downloaded as well. The DC Nation cartoon block was suddenly put on hiatus Friday night in a story broken by The Outhouse.

It isn't known yet if this iTunes availability will continue into next week, but, for the moment, fans of the show can take solace in the fact that the episodes scheduled to air still found a way to get through.

The most interesting development, however, involves a slight...  SPOILER.

Oh wait, I've said too much. *ahem*

The iTunes episode has revealed that the new episode of Young Justice that was to air on Saturday would have been the first ever cartoon appearance of Stephanie Brown. Former Batgirl Brown, along with another former Batgirl Cassandra Cain, have been deemed "toxic" characters by DC Comics, who have gone out of their way to prevent any appearance of the two in any DC publication or production. The banning has included relaunching the popular Brown's Batgirl series with Barbara Gordon in the cowl during the Nu52, and also replacing Brown with Gordon as Nightwing in the Smallville comic.

Here are some screenshots of the episode:

 

 

So is this another part of the vast conspiracy to keep Brown out of the public eye? Has Dan Didio's fear and hatred of the character, or his disdain for her fans, really led to the interruption of Cartoon Network's broadcast schedule? Will Brown be replaced by Gordon when the show eventually does air? Will the presence of two Barbara Gordons on the same show finally sate Dan Didio's ginger fetish? Speaking of which, is DC hoping Wolverine will defect to DC?

It seems absurd, but, more and more, the existence of a ridiculous DC conspiracy to keep fans from reading about or watching Stephanie Brown is looking to be not only plausible, but the most rational explanation for DC's actions.

On the serious side, this whole thing just sounds like more of Cartoon Network not knowing how to schedule their new content properly. It's sometimes a wonder how anything they've done has become popular.

I know but when someone was posting screencaps and then..the cast list. I had to go with that angle and thanks to Jude for editing it perfectly. :-D

They would just pull the episode and replace it with a rerun. Pulling the whole block means it's more likely Cartoon Network's doing.

As much as it sucks I hope it's this. I think it'd be much worse if the comics people have any say on the cartoons.
