I watched 3 preview clips of A Bat Divided! and 2 were of this villain bar. I spotted about 21 bad guys but I couldn't figure out 2 of them. One was a cowboy with a branding iron and the other was a bug motif villain with FF on his chest. Do you know what their names are? Thank you.

I thought it was pretty epic to see Signal Man, Eraser, King Cobra, Ten-Eyed Man, Cluemaster, Mr. Camera, Sweet Tooth, The Spinner, Dr. No-Face, Atomic Man, and Zodiac Master to debut on the show as well. Keep up the great work, can't wait to see the rest of the episode tomorrow.

The cowboy is called the Brand. The other guy is the original Firefly.

One of them will return later in the season! Also at least two of the guys in that longer list.

Thanks, Mr. Jones! And an extra thanks for those hints of future appearances.

Was the design of Ronnie's floating head an homage to Space Ghost when he went invisible?

Simon the Pieman and Mirror Man, too. Who's next, Electro? Oh man, I hope you get a raise. That bar scene was so well animated.

Ben Jones said...

The look of Ronnie's floating head was a callback to Dr. Stein's floating head in Super Powers, back when Firestorm was Ronnie and Martin Stein. I hope I get a raise too (even though it was James who selected all the villains in the bar)!

Michael said...

I didn't know Firestorm had a prior animated appearance. Good to know. The past few days, I've been searching in vain but could you please enlighten me about The Brand? I haven't found anything about him nor which comic he originated from.

Mr. Jones, what is the correct production order of the current season?

This is the current airing order of episodes.

1. Death Race to Oblivion!
2. Revenge of the Reach!
3. Long Arm of the Law!
4. Aquaman's Outrageous Adventure!
5. The Golden Age of Justice!
6. Sidekicks Assemble!
7. Clash of the Metal Men!
8. A Bat Divided!
9. The Super-Batman of Planet X!
10. The Power of Shazam!
11. Chill of the Night!

All I know about the Brand is that he's a Batman villain who dresses like a cowboy and carries a branding iron with the letter "B" on it. Maybe that's enough.

As for the episodes, I don't have any way of knowing why Cartoon Network has been airing them in the order they have, but they were produced in the following order -

1. Long Arm of the Law!
2. Revenge of the Reach!
3. Death Race to Oblivion!
4. Aquaman's Outrageous Adventure!
5. The Golden Age of Justice!
6. Clash of the Metal Men!
7. A Bat Divided!
8. Sidekicks Assemble!
9. The Super-Batman of Planet X!
10. The Power of Shazam!
11. Chill of the Night!
12. I can't say which one this is yet, but it's the best title in the whole series - and actually the title originally used for Terror on Dinosaur Island!, although it's much more appropriate for this episode.

I don't know why CN is tinkering so much with the airing order - last season they switched 4 & 5 so the Red Tornado episode could air with some other Christmas episodes, which made sense, then they left it alone 'til the last three. But our show's pretty light on continuity, so except for Woozy appearing in Death Race before getting sworn in in Long Arm, it all worked out fine.

Thanks a million, Mr. Jones.

Thank you for the production order and extra hint.

Some have looked at the order and noticed Aquaman meets the Faceless Hunter and is compromised before "Sidekicks Assemble!" where he teams up with Batman and Green Arrow. Is the easiest explanation that the teasers have nothing to do with the main story, even to the extent where they don't occur at the same time?

If I could hand out a No-Prize for that Aquaman continuity error explanation, I would. But I think Stan Lee has it trademarked.
