  1. Listening to the podcast now...
    Totally agree with Rob's comments about how Firestorm ought to remain more visible for his cross-media possibilities. Still, we're talking about Warner/DC, the company that didn't know what to do when Static Shock! was on the air at the WB. Here's Static (who should have met Firestorm when they both had a new52 book), star of his own TV show, and there was no book for him on the stands! The company that's consistently sold Scooby-Doo since my oldest daughter was little couldn't even muster up the energy for a Static comic. Oy.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to turn this into a rant about Static...

    Oh, and just a quick correction. Gail Simone is on "The Movement" and Art Balthazar is on "The Green Team". "The Movement" looks like it might be trying for a "Birds of Prey" vibe while "Green Team" might be trying to be a headline grabber Vertigo book without being a Vertigo book.

    Oh, and Firestorm may have been in Super Friends, but he was also in "Batman: Brave and the Bold". As animated incarnations go, that's pretty good. That's better than Blue Beetle, and way better than OMAC. Hopefully the new guy in charge at Warner Animation can share some Firestorm love and adapt a story or two. My pick might be the Superman/Firestorm team-up from DC Comics Presents, but updated to feature Firestorm's recent incarnation.

    Before I sign off, I'd like to say that you guys have the best opening music of any of the many, many podcasts I listen to. Every Monday morning, the jukebox in my head plays your music in anticipation of the podcast goodness that may or may not await me. Great work there.

    Anyway, time for me to go. Keep up the great work. I look forward to future episodes. Don't let this cancellation get you down.
