moves on to next question
me: what the hell is this
"a newly conceived reality in the DC universe where Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are much darker versions of the superheroes that people know"
i wonder if magic is real, but only in a really mundane way.
when i was little i could almost inerringly switch back to disney channel right as the ads ended when i was channel surfing.
maybe youve never accidentally crushed a ladybug underfoot. maybe your microwave popcorn never burns. maybe you can spin around lots and lots of times before you get dizzy.
is that magic??
honestly im not sure if these are magic or just small, invisible skills. im not sure which i like better.
do u ever have that one female character who u like that could literally beat u up and you’d say thanks
i’m really happy with what they’re planning to do with lauren
like i’ve honest to god never seen an intersex character anywhere and this is gonna flesh out her character a lot
Warner Bros. TV is rapidly expanding its live-action DC Comics TV universe. This season, it is going from one to four primetime series, returning Arrow and freshmenThe Flash, Gotham and Constantine, and already is prepping another major broadcast franchise with Supergirl. Now the studio is expanding the DC brand to cable drama with Titans, a project that is nearing a pilot order at TNT.
Titans revolves around the eponymous group of young Super Heroes-to-be from the DC Universe. The action series centers on Dick Grayson (probably best known for his alter ego as Robin), who emerges from the shadow of Batman to become Nightwing, the leader of a fearless band of new Super Heroes including Starfire, Raven and many others.
No outer space battles, no time travel, no Super vs. Super fighting, just superpowered individuals helping ordinary people who need them.
Superman protecting scared refugee kids from angry mobs because he knows what it’s like to be an undocumented immigrant.
Captain America standing up for a tired single mother getting harassed in the checkout line for using food stamps.
Wonder Woman comforting a trans girl by telling her that all it takes to be an Amazon is to follow Aphrodite’s laws of love and justice.
Scarlet Witch taking in a runaway girl fleeing a toxic household, holding her close in the middle of the night when she has nightmares. Telling her she’s not selfish or ungrateful, that family isn’t determined by blood.
These are the sort of stories I want to read. Maybe I’m just a sentimental fool, but I kinda miss the days when Superheroes were, ya know, heroic.
The only time the stuff at the very top is any good is if you can actually root for the heroes because they’re doing good, noble things for other people.
