Remembering McDuffie: “The Terror Beyond” from Justice League

The late Dwayne McDuffie had credits on over 60 episodes of the Cartoon Network Justice League Series. In the wake of is death, I wanted to review one of his most memorable episodes. This one has magic, aliens, multidimensional monsters, zombies, gangsters, and Aquaman!

“The Terror Beyond” is from the second season of Justice League, and like most episodes from the series, is split into two parts. It opens with the US Military hunting for a very large target, revealed to be Solomon Grundy. After a rocket propelled grenade to the face, Grundy chucks around some tanks like they were nothing. One tank fires a laser(!) on him, and as the military prepares to capture Grundy and take him in, Aquaman comes to his rescue. Riding atop a purple sea serpent, Aqauman announces “If you want to live, come with me” and the two escape under water. Now I remember how awesome this show is. Ha!

Aqauman arrives not in Atlantis, but the tower of Doctor Fate. Fate’s wife Inza greets them, and Grundy is offered a chest full of gold in exchange for some task or information. As a more immediate reward he scarfs down two cupcakes. Doctor Fate arrives and is pleased to me “Mr Grande.”

DC Universe Classics Wave 17 is Blackest Night

I know this news has been out for a while, but I’m trying to catch up on news I missed during the busy holiday/year end period. I’m not a big DCUC collector, but I have to admit, this is one tempting wave. From the facebook reveal:

Well the rumors this time are true! Wave 17 for DCUC is coming soon and it is our first step into the Blackest Night!

While we do have more Blackest Night concepts in the wings, this wave should help whet fans appetite for all the colored Lantern goodness!

Wave 17 will consist of Orange Lantern Luthor, Yellow Lantern Scarecrow, White Lantern Hal Jordan (with Black Lantern Variant), Violet Lantern Wonder Woman, Blue Lantern Flash and Indigo Lantern Atom. Together they will create a Collect and Connect modern Anti-Monitor!

And to answer the inevitable question, we did look into Red Lantern Mera. The only way to do her right is with a 100% tool and for that cost we can do 4 other figures. So while she did not make the cut this time around, we do know fans want complete sets and we are committed to one day getting her out there!

For now, a very happy holidays from all of your friends at and we’ll see you all in the New Year. Wave 17 will be on sale in late Spring 2011!

SDCC 2010: Mattel’s DCUC, DCIH, Green Lantern Classics and more

There were lots of announcements on the DC front from Mattel. To see the full Mattypalooza panel that mostly focused on Ghostbusters, MOTU, and DC Universe, you can go here.

What was revealed at the panel for DC product in the Mattypalooza panel was almost entirely exclusive to

Mattel held a separate panel just for DC Universe Classics and Green Lantern classics. You can watch the actual panel here and look below for highlights. I found it amusing that the first thing said in the DC Universe panel was that there would be more reveals in five minutes of this panel than there were in all the Hasbro panels. It makes me sad that he’s not far off the mark.

SDCC 2010: DCUO voice cast revealed, Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy

Beta keys are going to be given out to all attendees of the panel at SDCC for DC Universe Online.
We also got to hear ahead of time some of the big names on the voice acting cast for the new game.

Kevin Conroy – Batman
Mark Hamill – The Joker
Gina Torres (Firefly) – Wonder Woman
Adam Baldwin (Firefly) – Superman
James Marsters (Spike from Buffy) – Lex Luthor
Michelle Forbes (Ensign Ro from ST:TNG; Admiral Cain from BSG, and about a hundred other things) – Circe.

This game has been in development for a very long time under the art direction of now-DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee, but it looks like they are going about it the right way, with this news just further confirming that.

Young Justice coming to Cartoon Network

youngjusticeI’m part of the crowd that wished Justice League Unlimited was still on the air. Its only been, what, 5 years? Since we left the Bruce Timm universe, Cartoon Network has moved on to The Batman and now Brave & The Bold as the outpost of DC animation.

Certainly one of CN’s most successful (though strangely underrated) series was Teen Titans. I recall when the show premiered a few people around the comic shop suggested a better angle would’ve been Young Justice. Now it looks like they got the hint.

The lineup, from left to right, is: Artemis (or Arrowette?), Robin (Tim Drake?), Kid Flash (no Impulse?), Superboy (looks like Conner Kent), Miss Martian (wait, isn’t she a Titan?), and Aqualad (huh?). OK, so they’re taking some liberties with the team, but I’ll need to see it to know if they ruined it. Aretemis is a character from Wonder Woman’s camp, but the images makes her look a bit more like Green Arrow’s sidekick. Also Aqualad doesn’t exactly look like Aqualad, but this could be another diversification move by the animators to make the show looks less like white people kicking ass.

No voice cast announced, but the series character designs are pretty cool. Well, except Superboy’s cargo pants. No, Bruce Timm is not involved, but Greg Weisman of Gargoyles fame is one of the producers! Sam Register and Brandon Vietti are also producing, who collectively have worked on most DC shows and animated movies in the last 5 years.

The show will premiere this fall for the 2010/2011 season with a full season order of 26 half hour episodes.
