Continuing from the previous topic,
I meant things like other survivors of Krypton(Kara's parents, Krypto, etc...)
in a story similar to the animated movie, Superman Unbound.
Just an example.
Yeah, seems similar to the Superman/Batman comic and Unbound DTV, except they are deviating from that story in that Kara never made it to Earth and was Supergirl for a bit. And given the show's proclivity for timeskips between seasons, I hope time doesn't make Kara more foregone and less likely to be saved/debrainwashed. I'm don't think fans are digging Mary and Kara being villains.

Dare I ask, elaborate? lol. I know how you feel about Mary but don't recall with Kara. I'm sorry if you said so before, it's been a blur.

I wonder if this was their original plan for Mary and Supergirl. I remember Supergirl was on their 50+ list of Team candidates when they started working on the show.

I mean, when I think of Mary Marvel and Supergirl I don't naturally think "Female Furies loyal to Darkseid and with a chip on their shoulder against other heroes."

It feels like a lot of how they've written/established Mary was to make her Black Mary storyline make more sense than it did in the comics with the negative benefit of it not feeling like a proper adaption of her at all.

It's just kind of funny to me that they'd take the most innocent and idealistic of female heroes and posit their debut as basically villains. Only now Mary wears a skirt :p.

Yeah, I mean... who knows who else will be added onto the Furies during the next hypothetical time skip... Raven? Starfire? Bombshell?

Well, maybe. She might have had a prior outfit when she was on the Team in Year Five.

If we get another comic after Targets, I'd hope it's Shazam Family focused and also reuses ideas for the comic arc that never got made and delve into Mary to fill in the gaps. Bummer she and Freddy weren't on the Team during the Legacy game. Guess it was Happy New Year, you're off the Team.

And we still haven't seen a lot of the named Furies from the comics...

It's weird that I didn't like her hero look and prefer her villain design. Almost feels like they put more effort into the latter :rolleyes2:.

Nah, we've only seen Captain Marvel with one costume, so I think Sergeant Marvel always had her white and gold outfit. Personally, I think it looks awesome and I don't agree with Frontier at all. (Sorry, F!) Greg Weisman revealed ages ago that Lt. and Sgt. would wear pants, so I had a long time to get used to that idea. (But then, I'm also one of the people who quickly accepted that there would be time-skips after every season and that the cast would expand with each season... Not everyone has been so forgiving of YJ's tendencies to do these things.) I also find it easy to imagine Captain and Sergeant standing side-by-side and I think they would look great in a team-up capacity. Maybe the fact that we haven't seen Sergeant alongside any other heroes in the show itself is part of the reason that there's been a bit of backlash against her design? Because sure, obviously she would look a bit peculiar next to teen Billy and 20 year-old Mary, as she's in full costume and they aren't... I just find it easy to give that design a lot of slack and I genuinely think it's cool and appreciate it. Also, the lack of a skirt is really not a big deal at all...

But anyway, it's possible that Mary herself had a different outfit when she was on the Team. Maybe Mary and Freddy spent more time learning Covert-Ops skills and working as undercover operatives for the Team than they did in actual full-blown superhero mode, since there is nothing covert about Lt. and Sgt.? In which case, perhaps they dressed similarly to someone like Thirteen or even Superboy. I could see them being told to only use their Marvel forms when they were in dire straights. Which might have contributed to Mary's frustration and her desire to be Sergeant all the time, if she felt that that would solve everyone's problems.

Idk, Mary's forehead looked off model in that last shot.

I guess it's complimentary in the sense that it looks more like her brothers' suit than the traditional Mary Marvel costume (I mean, besides the color scheme) which was part of my problem with it.

Honestly felt like they took a bit of the fun out of Mary Marvel.

Or M'Gann. Granted a lot of characters are as OP as the plot needs them to be :p.

So there's this tweet Greg Weisman put out. He said that he hasn't been asked to come for any convention appearances, and to draw your own conclusions. I'd say it's a sign of there being no season 5, but wasn't it said somewhere else that the viewership was even higher this season?

Makes that's cliffhanger even MORE infuriating. We did not freaking NEED that.

It's not a great sign and I do have my doubts on the show getting picked up. At the same time, I wouldn't automatically assume it means the show's done either. As a result of cost-cutting, DC/WB will have limited space at this year's SDCC, and they seem to only be focusing on projects that are coming out on the next few months (and leaving out the CW DC shows entirely). Even if YJ was getting a new season, it wouldn't be getting a panel since there would be nothing to show.

I would wait to see if there is another Fandome this year. That seems like a space more specialized for DC news. Plus we still got the rest of the Targets comic coming out in the next few months, so we're getting SOME content.

This is worrying at a glance, but it doesn't look like DC will have that big of a presence at SDCC, projects that are further down the line won't be there at all.

They haven't even announced anything for the upcoming animated Batman, Superman, and Legion cartoons.

Makes that's cliffhanger even MORE infuriating. We did not freaking NEED that.
No-one was in immediate danger so it wasn't a cliffhanger. Obviously we don't know whether Kara and/or Mary will be saved from Darkseid, but one can easily just say that yes, they will probably be turned to the side of good at some point. Or maybe they won't. In any case, that little post-credits scene certainly made for a dramatic tease, but it wasn't a cliffhanger.

In any case, while I'm not fond of the Black Mary twist, I like the fact that Mary Bromfield/Sergeant Marvel may have more screen time if there is a fifth season. And I see nothing wrong with the Supergirl twist -- Earth-16 is a parallel universe, so I'm fine with her debuting as a villain.

So there's this tweet Greg Weisman put out. He said that he hasn't been asked to come for any convention appearances, and to draw your own conclusions. I'd say it's a sign of there being no season 5, but wasn't it said somewhere else that the viewership was even higher this season?
Don't put any stock in that. It takes the company a long time to decide on renewing DC animated streaming series. We all know this. YJ had the benefit of being renewed for a season 4 on July 29, 2019, a month before Outsiders' finale on August 27, 2019 because it was still DCU while in contrast Harley Quinn had a delay due to the shift from DC Universe to HBO Max during its run. Harley's season 2 finale aired June 26, 2020 and the renewal wasn't until September 16, 2020. In ideal conditions, they likely won't make a decision on renewing or not until the fall. But we currently have the ongoing post-merger of Warner and Discovery which could further delay the process. So we may not know YJ's fate until September-November this year. The best thing fans can do is keep on tweeting, keep streaming on HBO Max, and buy the comic.

This is worrying at a glance, but it doesn't look like DC will have that big of a presence at SDCC, projects that are further down the line won't be there at all.

They haven't even announced anything for the upcoming animated Batman, Superman, and Legion cartoons.
Too early in the pipeline to present anything. 3 weeks since the YJ season finale, the company doesn't see the need to hold a panel for show whose season wrapped up. It's just logistics.

A mid-October Fandome (if Discovery continues it) would be the more appropriate time, if not sooner.

It would be great if they order two seasons so we get S5 in 2024-2025 and S6 in 2026.

I know this is nerdy pedantry but it bug me when writers refer to cartoons that aired in Prime Time or Syndication as "Saturday Morning Cartoons". I don't expect the average person to know/care, but when you're writing an article or a video essay? Come on, you should get that right.
Oh hey today is my 8th anniversary here, I regret sometimes not making my account sooner, since I knew about this place as early as 2012. Anyhow time sure flies.
Posting less going well. No warnings for anything so I think the board agrees. Still present for everything and DO read what you guys say. But if I see something I don't like I keep my damn mouth shut. It's for the best.
20 Years ago today, Discovery Kids on NBC launched , it was my first introduction to Discovery Kids. I didn't have digital cable so I didn't have the channel. I liked Trading Spaces: Boys vs Girls. Tutenstien, Kenny the Shark, Time Warp Trio, Darcy's Wild Life.
Reading about Shea Fontana and watching this video with Ann Austen makes me want to see them collaborate on a project someday.
