Batman: The Brave and the...Gold... [Jun. 25th, 2010|02:40 pm]
All Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, all the time!

Here in the United States, beloved cartoon Batman: The Brave and the Bold has been on hiatus for months now. Which is really depressing.

However, in several overseas nations, a few of the newer episodes have aired, including "The Siege of Starro: Part One."

I managed to get my hands on a copy of this episode, and while I won't spoil the whole thing, it does contain a significant amount of Booster in it. And Booster in a way we don't often see him.









AW YEAH CIVVIES!

For the curious, that's Billy Batson, Ronnie Raymond, and Jason Rusch with him. Skeets is in his backpack.

Also, beloved JLI scribe J.M. DeMatteis has confirmed in an interview here that we will be seeing not one but TWO episodes featuring the Brave and the Bold version of the JLI. Considering how many members of the team we've seen on the show (in addition to Bats: Booster, Fire, Big Barda, Mister Miracle, Dr. Fate, Captain Marvel, Black Canary, Guy Gardner, G'nort, the late great Ted Kord, Jaime...who kind of counts...Mary Bromfield/Batson who is not yet Mary Marvel but will be soon, Elongated Man, the back of J'onn's head in a flashback) it's anybody's guess who will be on that roster.

So hooray for Batman: The Brave and the Bold! Bringing us more JLI and more hot Booster!

OMG!
wait...maybe I'm wrong, but it IS the first time that we see the whole face of an animated Booster right?

Thanks for the screenshots *___*
Germany finally airs BatB but I guess we have to wait a looong...long time to see this stuff.

And JLI+BatB??
Hooray :DD

This is indeed the first time we've seen the whole face of an animated Booster. Booster's eyes have been obscured by an opaque visor in all of his appearances so far.

Part 1 and 2 should officially air in the US in July... but I also didn't feel like sitting around and waiting for the US airing, and enjoyed part 1 a great deal!

I've been waiting for someone to post it on youtube so I can share it, but I haven't seen it pop up there yet. can't wait for part 2 and for the JLI episodes!

...I might like this show a bit too much, but my adoration is well earned.

"Should" being the operative word here.

I can't wait to see who's on the roster for the JLI episodes.

Oh excellent find!

...and dammit, my local cable-crawl didn't give tonight's ep a plot synopsis or mark it as a repeat so I was hoping it might be a new one. July?

My guess would be not a new one. July is what they've said, but I am not terribly inclined to believe them.

Ah, Michael! I'm going through severe Batman: Brave and the Bold addition, this isn't helping T_T

I'm not crazy, he's with the two parts of firestorm and billy batson, right?

Thanks for the screenshots!

Not crazy at all! Billy, Ronnie, Jason, Booster and B'wana Beast are the only heroes Batman can find who haven't had a Starro smushed to their face.

Booster points out how screwed they are by this lineup.

Ah. Poor Batman. He gets the rejects even starro doesn't want, lol.

Wait, so Booster grew a semblance of a brain in Brave and the Bold-verse? Yay!

...Not exactly. Booster once answered the Riddle of the Sphinx ("what walks on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon, and three legs in the evening?") with "a nine-legged...UNICORN!"

This version of Booster strikes me as early-in-his-career Booster, when he was most interested in being the superhero equivalent of Paris Hilton.

lol, yeah, that's the version of him the AU tends to take. He was like that in JLU too. This Booster was just... more annoying, I guess. Then again all the characters are, to a certain extent, caricatures of themselves, so it's to be expected.

Oh man oh man oh man. I'm seriously, seriously hoping that one of the JLI episodes has the JLI accepting Jaime as a new member. And then the second episode is a flashback one that has Ted in there.

Or better yet! Time travel!

Also, Billy is like the littlest old man ever. He's got a 40 year-old man's head on a pre-teen's body. And I would have not guessed that's Ronnie if you hadn't told me- talk about your lantern jaws.

First time I heard Ronnie talk I was like, "Holy shit whaaaaa?" because his voice actor is totally the same guy who played Broadway the Gargoyle (...and Patrick Star from Spongebob, but I identified him as Broadway first).

When I first looked at those screenshots I thought that the little floating C thing was supposed to be skeets and thought "Well, that's a weird way to draw him..."

Now I realize it's just the station logo...

Booster was actually pretty kick-ass in this episode, more than he was in his first two apperances. Still arrogant, but becoming more of a competent hero. And he had some of the best lines! And he fought...I can't say, but it made me squee.

Animated JLI is like my dream come true. And they at least have to either mention Ted and/or have Jaime hanging out with Booster. (I'm assuming it would be a present version, and Booster's pretty new to the verse so I don't think he would have been around/well known enough to team up with them in the past Ted-era...) And they could have Fire and Ice and Guy/Ice and Ralph and Sue and Mister Miracle and Barda and MAX LORD GAH SO EXCITED.
