For all the vitriol that their film division gets, DC animation freaking slays the competition (save for that Teen Titans Go thing)....I seriously dunno why they don't use their animation writers for their feature films.  Anyways I digress.....

Thanks for posting, that clip is incredibly clever in both nods to teenage students as well as poking fun at the her comic mythos.   Very clever.

Her personality fits Power Girl way more than Supergirl in this show

I still can't quite believe they actually used the keyhole uniform in a cartoon. Directed at teenagers, yeah, but really?

Also they animated her with serious abs.

If you want to have a laugh, after adopting Powergirl costume, Kara actually tries to channel her inner Betty Cooper and be more calm and reasonable, pretty much adopting the personality of her Silver Age counterpart.
What was that thing about not crossing the streams, dr. Spengler?

Very funny clip - DC's television cartoons are so much better than Marvel's!

Yup, DC owns animated, Marvel owns cinema for sure :)

In fact, for many years, fans have been saying put Bruce Timm and Paul Dini in charge of the DCEU.  Would have been a hell of a lot better under their watch :)  But heyho :)

Loved that clip :)

Peace.

I would give Marvel the edge for their live-action TV shows though.  I think it happened because Marvel went straight to streaming, where they can really indulge their edgiest instincts, while DC went for the more-constrained-but-more-eyeballs commercial stations.

I would probably agree with this Agent.  Jessica Jones, especially Season 1, was fantastic.  Daredevil also was pretty damn good, as was Luke Cage.  Iron Fist, well, lets not talk about that lol :D  Or Inhumans bwahahhaah :P 

To be fair to DC, the first 2 seasons of Flash are probably the best of the lot, in regards to the Berlanti-verse.  You could probably watch those 2 seasons and get a complete story, without carrying on where it devolved into soap opera (especially now).

Legends of Tomorrow had been a blast.  Season 2,3, and 4 were brilliant, simply for their quirkiness and the chemistry between the characters.  Haven't seen any of season 5.  In fact, I checked out of the Berlanti-verse at the end of Crisis (Supergirl much, much earlier, and I'm sure as hell not going to watch any of Batwhaman).

So, overall, I think you are right, Marvel does have the edge over live action.  Especially with Winter Soldier, Wandavison, Loki, etc coming down the road.

But there are some gems in the CW/DC universe :)

Just my thoughts :)

Peace.

I really think that one of the real boosts of going to streaming is that a season is variable and is 8-13 episodes instead of 24.

That keeps the story arcs tight and focused.

ti does help that the story can also be edgier too.  Writers can make the voice be what it needs to be.

I think Teen Titans and Doom Patrol are pretty good. Doom Patrol has a really weird voice. (I've not seen Swamp Thing.)

DC animation has been strong for a long time.  Marvel's animated efforts are lackluster.  I've always thought that Marvels stuff is like some of the worst of Disney -- it's made for kids and it's made for kids in such a way it's also NOT made for adults.  It's too "dumb".

DC animation tends kid friendly -and- adult friendly.

I'm talking about most direct efforts of disney, not things like the Pixaar movies which generally are excellent examples are making movies that appeal to all age ranges.

DC also makes more adult animated things.  The animated DC Suicide Squad movie is like 10x better than the live action one.  I honestly don't know why they don't get those people to write the live action movies.

(I haven't seen the last WW animated movie, i hear it's not very good.)

And ..the INHUMANS. Man, that wasn't really Marvel's best work.

I agree Twice, I think the streaming options with their variable episode size (8 - 10) is the future.

They give those tight story arcs, with no filler (or very little) episodes.

22-24 episodes a season is way too much.  You have episodes where nothing really happens.  Or something pops up for one or two episodes that has nothing to do with the main arc.  They are just there to fill out the quota.

DC Animation is great :)   Like I mentioned in an earlier post, Bruce Timm and Paul Dini should have been the architects of the DCEU (like Feige was for Marvel).  Hell, give them the job now, and do a complete reboot :)

Marvel Animated sucks ass for sure lol :D 

Peace.

If we look back Marvel and DC had been on pretty much opposite trajectories with animation and movies.

In the '90s and early 2000s both companies put out some pretty good animated shows (Batman, the Animated Series, X-Men, etc.). Whereas the DC shows felt like a coherent narrative (with some big inconsistencies) that started with Batman and went on to incorporate Superman, the JLU, Static Shock and Batman Beyond, the Marvel show were more or less self-contained stories that had some random crossovers (the X-Men appeared in Spider-Man, several Avengers had cameos in X-Men, etc.). Even after the conclusion of the DC Animated Universe, many of their Direct-to-Video movies were meant to work as their own self.-contained universes, while Marvel's were completely stand-alone products.
When Kevin Feige started the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe project, the Warner/DC started playing catch-up, without understanding that the key to these projects is a good roadmap available beforehand and someone that can enforce it over the "creative decisions" of single directors. Traditionally, Warner is a company that gives a lot of leeway to its writers and directors, but in a shared universe project this can be a major challenge.

100% agree about the personality being more PG than SG but when I can make myself accept that different creators treat characters differently it really is a fun series.
