Yes - that was a great one! I imagine a version of "Mogo Doesn't Socialize" would be another great one to see animated!

GREEN LANTERN Animated Series is NOT a spinoff; Will feature Red Lanterns?!

Quote:

Jim Krieg is the story editor for Warner Bros. Animation's upcoming Green Lantern animated series, The Continuum has learned.

Krieg recently wrote the Firebreather animated movie for Cartoon Network. His genre credits also include Batman: The Brave and the Bold, The Super Hero Squad Show and Fox's Spider-Man and X-Men series.

The series is the first computer-generated animated series featuring DC Universe characters. It will focus on Hal Jordan, Kilowog and a Red Lantern. It will not be canon for the live-action movie franchise.

It's likely the new Batman series to follow Batman: The Brave and the Bold will also be computer-generated.

ive always felt the other spectrums cheapened the main two being the green and yellow
the yellow amped up a threat to the green but the other colors made it all seem normal
it ripped away all the specialness of having a ring and shot it to everyones doing it

Considering how vast the universe is, it's still a fraction of a fraction of people wielding rings. Though, now that blackest night is over, I think we'll see/hear less of the other corps.

It'll probably be a kids cartoon aimed at a younger audience like BB was. The whacky adventures of Hal and his angry curmudgeon friend Atrocitus.

What the heck? It focuses on Hal, Kilowog and a RED Lantern? What kind of a bizarre formula is THAT to introduce folks to the GL mythos? (And you KNOW, movie aside, this show WILL be doing that for many.) Couldn't we start with something a bit more basic before tossing in Elements like the Red Lanterns that would require their own detailed explanation? I really hope, now, that the new GL comic aimed at younger readers is NOT based off this. I MIGHT enjoy the show, since I'm already immersed in the GL mythos, but I'm not too psyched about introducing my younger kids to GL with a series with a main character that is a napalm-puking, rage Lantern.

That's only what, 7 people per sector? 8 if you include 2 GL's per sector. That's still minuscule.

Of course, there were a ton more black rings, but that didn't last too long.

I think by Red Lantern, they just mean that we'll see Atrocitus early on ala Secret Origin.

I think the point is that is that we still have to deal with those color corps instead of the already limitless potential of the GREEN Lantern Corps. Its what we picked up the book for. While the other corps may not be a significant amount of creatures in the universe, it still takes away focus from the most interesting non-one dimensional characters.

I freely admit that the color-coded cavalry is a bit silly, but I see them slowly moving away from it. I've already noticed less of a presence in the books.

I could use a LOT less presence! They need to speed up the withdrawl process! The book needs to start being about GREEN Lanterns again.

As far as the cartoon goes, I don't think it's a bad thing to have guest stars from the rainbow brigade era of the book. It'd be nice if every episode featured some kind of cool guest star throughout GL's 70 year history. I just think it'd be lame, even for kids, to make Atrocitus or some other Red Lantern a sidekick in every episode. I guess we'll see what they end up doing sooner or later.

Remember, it says "will feature", it says nothing about him being a sidekick, he'll probably be a recurring villain, along with Sinestro, Black Hand, etc.

Well, we have to watch in order for anyone to recur.

So you're saying you wouldn't support the show? You can count on one hand the number of current good cartoons. I'll at least give it look first and then condemn it.

Sounds good. Like TF: Prime, Im happy that this is not a spin off. Mostly for any continuity issues it might have with the movie.

I'll
surely watch but who knows about the rest of the world. If they don't watch then we won't get to see certain characters and tap into the potential that the series has.

Honestly when I read that synopsis, I instantly thought "So they're doing the Emerald Warriors pitch but using Hal instead of Guy.."

Hopefully this is good though. If its like Brave and the Bold, it'll be somewhat enjoyable at least in my opinion.

I most likely won't be watching it on TV, since I don't get cable and I figure the odds of this being on a regular network are about 0.0000001%.
