Red Tornado on TV!

No, it’s not a Red Tornado TV series, sadly, but there’s a new cartoon coming out called BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD which is described as:

Batman isn’t going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the classic Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventure with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home.

Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network have issued an abbreviated list of characters that will be appearing on Batman: The Brave and The Bold. The list can be seen below.

I’m a little worried about the character design. Also apparently, very light, not dark, aimed for younger kids.

Episode 1: “The Rise of the Blue Beetle!,” Batman and Blue Beetle team up to save an alien race from Kanjar Ro.
Episode 2: “Terror on Dinosaur Island!” Batman and Plastic Man thwart Gorilla Grodd’s plot to devolve humans into primates.
Episode 3: “Evil Under the Sea!” Batman aids Aquaman as Ocean Master and Black Manta team up to assassinate him.

  1. Let me just say that the new Blue Beetle comic has been excellent. Very Whedonesque, despite it not being written by Joss Whedon. Here’s hoping he’s done well in this series too.
