Two Atoms Enter, One Atom Leaves

    While Cartoon Network is still holding off on airing new episodes, someone hasn't passed the word along to iTunes or Amazon, because they're releasing new episodes every week. Grab 'em before they notice their mistake! So this post is about episode 7 (listed as episode 6 with the online vendors), and if you want to avoid even the tiniest of spoilers, stop reading now (although the title is about as spoilery as this post is gonna get anyways).

     Still reading? OK then, here's the thing - Show 7 is our Atom episode, the one where we introduce Ray Palmer. But don't fret, Ryan Choi fans, he's in it too. But by the end of the episode, only one will be the Atom. I just wanted to take a moment to say that DC's been really good with giving us a lot of leeway in our show, but they did have a specific mandate for which Atom would still be our show's Atom at the end of the episode. All the same, thanks to DC for mostly giving us free rein.
    Also, for those who are interested in the behind-the-scenes kinda stuff, we switched the teasers for Battle of the Superheroes! with this show. So really, there wasn't quite so much of an Aquaman barrage in the script for this one, it just kinda worked out that way.

I hope we will get to see Alan Scott before the series ends. It would be awesome to see an origin story of the first Green Lantern in the 40's!
Scorn of the Star Sapphire was great!

I really hope they'll make a Justice League International animated series spin-off from Batman: The Brave and the Bold and use the same cast who voiced League.

It would be awesome and they can also use more lesser known DC characters.

Long Live the Justice League International!

I must say, I was really surprised by the end of the "Sword of the Atom" episode after reading your comment about DC's mandate and the fate of Ryan Choi in the comics. Pleasantly surprised, though!

Also, it was nice to have one last Ryan/Aquaman team-up episode from BatB. Their first time together was one of the funniest episodes up to that point.
