Where the hell are they going to get the money to do that? Most TV Networks can't handle relatively cheap shows like 24, Star Trek, etc... This would cost a fortune for one character and they want to do multiple characters? Who are they going to fight terrorists? Cause if they aren't fighting a real world threat; it's going to drive the budget up even more. This would make the movie budget look like pocket change.
I certainly agree that's it's sad that these titles are being cancelled. Unfortunately, as you also stated, I think it's DC's own fault. The more titles a publisher seems to put together at a time, it seems like the more chances there are for some to fall through the cracks. Similarly to this, Marvel's new titles have a very inconsistent quality level. The art in Defenders for instance, is TERRIBLE! I've all ways believed that it's better to have fewer titles with more support behind them, than a vast array of titles with only a shoestring level of support.
As someone who isn't a HIUGE fan of DC historically. I think many of these titles also lost traction because no one knew much about them before hand and without a strong showing right out of the gate; they lost the few people who were reading them and never got new people.
It was a very good show. I remember my girlfriend and I watching it every day. But I think the audience for that type of show is probably more on Adult Swim than it would be during the day or evening these days. There really isn't a single solitary show, except maybe the new Thundercats, that even makes an attempt to be serious. Even the new Young Justice, which I love, is too often mired in silly tongue in cheek humor. I just think that everyone thinks that the audience for cartoons like this are MUCH too young to understand anything of substance. Which I completely disagree with. I would say that Young Justice would be a perfect proving ground for this; but again, considering Batman Brave and the Bold's terrible ratings, I don't think that DC/WB is willing to take what is perceived to be a big chance. But then that is 21st Century TV in a nutshell.
Yes I did, I guess your referring to my wondering how Superman gets caught and put in the electric chair. What I meant was that, he didn't seem severely injured enough to get to the point he is at in the beginning of issue #2. That's why I kind of backed off and I said that I guess I could go with it and not really hold it against the comic. It just seemed like a little bit of a reach to me. Especially considering his virtually invulnerable performance in this issue.
