Animated World of DC Comics: The Golden Age of Justice (2010)

From season 2 of Batman: The Brave & the Bold:

Batman (Diedrich Bader) first teams with Detective Chimp in the teaser segment, but after that, the Justice Society & Black Canary join the Caped Crusader to take down old foe Per Degaton in "The Golden Age of Justice".

One quibble. In the comics, Professor Zee, shown as Degaton's servant, was actually Degaton's employer, and looked nothing like the character shown here. Instead, the animated Zee bears some resemblance to Dr. Thaddeus Bodog Sivana, arch-nemesis of Captain Marvel. How the producers screwed this up, I'll never know.

For now, we only have this sample:

It's a pity the series has ceased production, but that was Cartoon Network's call. Of course, those idiots are creating some havoc with their DC Nation block, which we'll discuss another time.

Rating: A.

I enjoyed B&TB and I still catch some eps online from time to time. This was a good entry and it was nice for it to touch on the Golden Age of heroes and Dinah's mother, the original Black Canary. I liked how it was so different that more recent incarnations, going the lighter route for the first time since the Superfriends era. Not being a comics maven, it was also fun to be introduced to heroes and villians who had never been see onscreen before.

If only the show could have gone on one more season. Maybe we could have gotten a teaser with Batman teaming up with The Impossibles (A girl can dream can't she?). But getting the SG team up was a blast!

Batman & Birdman might've ruled, too. Batman & the Impossibles? Hmmmmm.....
