You’d Be Surprised What My Favorite Thing From DC Comics Is

I’ll let you know, I’m not a DC Comics fan. I’ve watched most DC Comics movies and I do know a lot of the major characters but I’m not nearly as invested as I am with Marvel.

I think it’s safe to say that the Dark Knight Trilogy is one of the greatest trilogies of all time and is a pinnacle of DC Comics excellence but actually, the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy isn’t my favorite piece of entertainment from DC Comics. It’s actually something far different. And that is…

Teen Titans Go! on Cartoon Network.

Review: In 'Teen Titans Go! To the Movies,' It Takes a Superhero to Spoof  One - The New York Times

As a child I remembered watching the serious action cartoon Teen Titans and enjoying it but when the characters returned in 2013, albeit under a new goofy format, it was brilliant.

The cartoon has had literally over 300 episodes and counting, some of which have become go-to references in our household. The five superheroes are displayed in a light that is so heartwarming and hilarious that every time I have ever watched it it is has managed to make me laugh.

And even when the teen hero group got their own movie, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies it ended up receiving a 91% score on Rotten Tomatoes, proving once again that the Cartoon Network phenomenon is absolutely fantastic.

Yes, Teen Titans Go! is very, very goofy and quite ridiculous but if I had a choice between watching The Dark Knight Trilogy and Teen Titans Go! I would pick Teen Titans Go! every time.

I love this cartoon.

What’s a cartoon that brings you joy every time you watch it? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY-FOUR)

Gloria stood in the eerily quiet cave she had grown to call home, tears wettening her face as the image of Robin’s hanging body pierced her thoughts. In the past month, she had fought alongside against the evil forces under The Penguin’s reign. They never found Commissioner Lynx nor did they discover who The Penguin really was. Not until it was too late.

Robin was going to take The Penguin down. He said the mission was too dangerous. That he should go alone. Batwoman had been on a mission of her own as she strove to take The Penguin’s compatriots, Harley Quinn and the villainess now known as Poison Ivy, down. Gloria had wanted to join him. She told him he would need her help.

“Whatever happens to me, I’ll be okay knowing that you’ll still be here,” he had told her. Those were the last words he ever said to her. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY-FOUR)

The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY-THREE)

One month later…

Gotham was thrust into darkness after the horrifying death of the city’s loyal protector, Robin. It happened like a stone being cast into the night. Sudden and without warning.

The Flock had captured him and hung him from the top of the courthouse for all to see. That very next morning, the mayor, Tom Goldman, revealed his true identity, Harley Quinn and Pamela Isley standing by his shoulders. The city was thrown into even deeper shock and despair.

Commissioner Lynx was still missing and thought never to be found again.

Gloria Ramirez, now widely known in the city as the mysterious Nightwing, a compatriot of Robin’s, had never been more depressed. Robin had become more than just a mentor, he had become a friend. Losing him in such a horrible way was worse than she could’ve possibly imagined and it hurt her to the core.

Katherine Kane hadn’t been able to save him. But she had to save Gotham. For Robin.

That following night after his passing Batwoman stood on top of the very courthouse where Robin had been hung, rescued his corpse, and with the Bat-signal lighting up the night sky, she disappeared into the night.

 

The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY-TWO)

Blake Lively hadn’t felt this defeated since he stood on the bridge and watched Batman’s helicopter explode over the ocean. At that moment, he knew he was truly alone. But there was also a sense of determination.

Bruce Wayne had died knowing that Gotham would be safe under his protection. He strove to prove Wayne correct. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY-TWO)

The Dark Knight Lives (FIFTY-EIGHT)

Commissioner Lynx knew she would have to keep her emotions in check but as she stared at the decorated casket containing Commissioner Gordon’s body within its confines she was finding it very hard to.

The rain had begun to appropriately fall from the sky, casting everything in a gloomier light. People were starting to arrive at the procession, meaning she would have to regain composure quickly. Behind her, she heard footsteps approaching but she didn’t turn to look. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (FIFTY-EIGHT)

The Dark Knight Lives (FIFTY-SEVEN)

Jokes and pleasant chattering aside, Blake Lively had a job to do. The Commissioner’s funeral was arriving in a couple of hours and that meant Lynx would be exposed as she proceeded with the unfortunate occasion. He needed to be there as a silent guardian to ensure her survival and that meant he couldn’t stand around continuing to frolic with these newcomers.

And he relayed his concerns to everyone who had made their way into the eating room as they spoke over a quick brunch.

“Can I come with you?” Gloria asked him.

He shook his head. “Not this time, I’m afraid.”

She seemed upset by this answer, that is until he ensured her that she would still be a part of the mission as they would communicate with one another over two commlinks. And, apparently, she would be able to see everything as he would through a camera in the visor of his mask.

The woman, Katherine Waterson, would join the proceedings under her true disguise; herself. Donning the Batsuit would take the focus from Commissioner Gordon’s funeral and that would be selfish.

“Are we ready to get out of here?” Blake asked.

Katherine nodded. “Yes.”

And so, they left the cave to go to the funeral.
