Quick Flash recap. First we had Jay Garrick. Then we had a reboot in 1956 that introduced Barry Allen, said to live on a parallel Earth. Then a reboot in 1986 made Barry’s sidekick the new Flash and also altered history so Jay now lived on the same earth. In 2011, DC had another company-wide reboot in which all comic titles were cancelled and 52 new titles were released. In the New 52, Jay Garrick and Barry Allen once again live on separate Earths and Kid Flash is a very different character. Let’s get to it!READ MORE

Cartoon Network is busy presenting their upcoming roster of shows for advertisers and we’ve seen some interesting developments. For one, there’s an all-new Powerpuff Girls special making its way to the network but Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and Young Justice are notably absent. Could this mean what we think it means? It sure can considering two new DC shows are premiering soon.READ MORE

DC Comics is coming up on the year mark on its New 52 reboot, and the 52 have not gone without some pruning and additions. The third wave of the reboot is now upon us, and contains one addition we’re positively delighted to see. Not only does it resurrect a long dormant female character who most people have never heard of, she’s also in something of a genre twist for the DC universe, and her book is going to be written by the woman who created hard-rocking, kickass ’80s heroines Jem and the Holograms.
Look, just let me talk about Amethyst and Christy Marx for a bit, and then I’ll tell you about how Teen Titans is coming back to TV with its entire original voice cast.READ MORE

Glen Murakame‘s Teen Titans enjoyed an incredibly popular run from 2003 to 2006, introducing millions of kids to the relatively unknown-outside-of-comics characters of Starfire, Raven, and Terra (as well as Beast Boy and Cyborg). It’s dedicated fanbase, so long denied any new material, must be excited to see this take on the characters returning in the form of shorts on DC Nation. But that won’t stop me from saying, of this clip: That’s so Raven.

Teen Titans, in its very popular run of five seasons, began as a show intended for the young audience that might be interested in DC superheroes, and in that respect its cartoony tone and frequent diversions into anime style chibis grabbed a lot of attention. The show remained a hit, however, by doing what most kids shows with broad appeal do: treating its characters like three-dimensional objects and slowly deepening their development and the seriousness of the situations they were in.
Which is all a round about way of saying that we’re sure a lot of people are really excited to see that interpretation of the characters back for the DC Nation programming block premiering on Cartoon Network in March. Enjoy!
