It's not really a blow. What was a blow was first the reboot erasing all the BMWW we had built up the last decade, then SMWW happening in 2012, and then them getting their own comic book.ARB wrote:QR_BBPOSTWell I'm glad you're still in somewhat of a high spirit, god knows we need a few people here to spread some optimism >_<Lotslover wrote:QR_BBPOST Glad to be back! I've missed you guys a lot. I have to say that I agree with you ARB. My little shipper heart is broken into a million pieces. I really thought we were finally past all this SMWW crap. I was talking to Dinasis about it too....ok, actually I was venting my rage at him and he kind of calmed me down by saying the same thing someone else said here. This was in production while New52 was going on.
I guess our only hope is that they'll come to their senses. While it's not the most awesome show in the world, it definitely helped fill the void that JL/JLU left behind. I was seriously hoping that this show was going to pick up on the DCEU love for BMWW and do with it what JL/JLU was too scared to do. Even if they do end up going down the yellow brick BMWW road, I agree with you. It's already been tainted by the wicked witch relationship known as SMWW.
Yeah, this whole situation honestly stinks, and I can't pretend I'm not disappointed even if this is just a hold over from the New 52. The very brazen and crappy way they shove it in there certainly didn't help matter either. It sucks to realize that BMWW, even its heydays never received anything like this, and people actually liked it. Meanwhile, DC is still trying to push an idea that proved to be a failure, and are doing so in the most aggressive way possible. Let's hope the DCEU turns things around....
Still this is a pretty hard blow to all of us. It's the timing that made it all the more cruel, as I believe most people, me included were caught completely off guard by this. It came at a time when we thought SMWW was completely dead, and that's why people are voicing their displeasure with it. Also, seeing the same people who constantly criticize the way BMWW was handled in the DCAU gloating about JL Action doesn't make things easier...theamerican wrote:QR_BBPOST Again it seems to be a "meh" cartoon so I wouldn't worry. DC seems to have lost its luster for animation lately.
Since then we've had the DCEU and Susan Eisenbert still championing BMWW. Furthermore the animated films have been tanking since Timm left and everyone's been commenting except for Young Justice and some Brave and the Bold moments, nothing has competed with the DCAU since then. And now DC has even done away with SMWW. You have Rucka subtlety pretending it never happened and it wasn't really part of WW. We'll be fine. Don't let a two year old mediocre cartoon worry you. With Young Justice coming back JL Action will probably fade away in animation priority
