This might have been asked a billion times, but if Dini created Harley Quinn, is she also off limits? Because she would be fun to use again in a Gotham setting. Any clues?

Awesome news on the main page about JLU Season 2 starting on February 5th. I didn't think they'd be starting right away, so its a nice surprise. I'm shocked that Felix Faust is returning and I was scratching my head as to why Tobias Whale is showing up. Isn't he a Black Lightning villain?

Anyway, its still great news and I have no doubts that next season will be a winner.

Dwayne McDuffie talked about Bruce Timm's attempts to use Tobias Whale a few months ago on his website's message boards. His plan was to use him as part of Huntress' origin, but they weren't cool with using him at the time. Apparently that's changed. You can read the quote here (scroll down to the Huntress' entry).

Looks like things haven't changed. Dwayne McDuffie corrected the press release saying that there won't be any Tobias Whale.

\

it was indeed "young aquaman", NOT part of the established dcau, completely different style, etc....it was in development for kids wb for awhile, they ultimately passed on it, it's now seemingly in permanent limbo....

no idea when "krypto" is scheduled to debut....sorry....

b.t., I'm going wayyy off-topic here, but I'm curious about the Kamandi series you mentioned pitching once -- how far did that get?
if you read that COMICOLOGY interview a few years back, you know pretty much the whole story....it was pretty much an off-the-cuff verbal pitch, with color blowups of kirby comic art....the lady from kids wb seemed very confused while looking at the art: "i kinda like the premise, but, um...you want it to look like THAT?!"...also, they wanted to add a strong female supporting character, and since there really AREN'T any in the original comics, and i wanted to stay as faithful to the comics as possible, we reached a quick impasse, they lost interest....it would have been WAY too violent for them, anyway, i think, it's probably best it didn't happen....

regardless of who created her, i'm sure she's considered part of the batman franchise....THE BATMAN could probably use her, but JLU probably can't (and we don't really have any burning desire to use her without mr. j, anyway).....

Well, I don't know if you read Superman/ Batman by Jeph Loeb, but Kamandi just recently appeared in it... in fact, it was the last issue. I suppose you're a fan of his so you might enjoy picking it up. :)

Well, it's known now that Captain Marvel will be making an appearance. I think that's great but does anyone know if Billy and Shazam will be making appearances as well? I think it'd be a nice way to constrast the Big Red Cheese with Big Blue.

its AWESOME that season 2 is starting right away!!! And Felix Faust is back? Thats cool because i loved his character and "Paradise Lost".

One thing i hope doesnt happen is that he appears with no explaination of how he came back to life. His death scene was pretty dang cool, imo, and if they just bring him back with no explaination i will be VERY disapointed.

a qs about the krypto series though...Paul Dini was a writer on it, right? was he the HEAD writer or a producer, what exactly was his role on it? And since he announced his official departure from WB animation, how does that effect the show? will it not be renuied, will they just replace him? anyone have any ideas? and speaking of which, does that also mean there's no chance of him writing another JLU ep (not that is work on JL/JLU has been anything to brag about, but)?

peace.

Seems pretty straightforward -- Hades, Lord of the Underworld, aged him to dust and then the dust got sucked into Tartarus/Hell, just ahead of Hades himself. So sure, Faust is dead and in Hell with Hades. It seems like no big deal to work out a way out of the Underworld -- Circe and Medusa were able to get out to fight and chat with the JLU, respectively, if only for a short while.

Maybe Faust found some pals in Hell that could help him escape, like, oh, I dunno --
Abnegazar, Rath, and Ghast? Or maybe he can leave briefly as an emissary of Hades?

I like that Delta Rune doesn't even try to conceal it's creepy subtext. Just tosses it right at you from the start.
