Folks who have already seen the Young Justice two-part premiere will realize The Flaming C has simply replaced Superman in this scene (in dialogue, position and even facial expression), but that doesn’t begin to affect how fucking awesome it is. Although thinking about it, I don’t want a Flaming C cartoon nearly as much as I just want him to be hanging around with the Justice League. Hell, as far as I’m concerned, he can replace Superman full-time. And why not make Andy a sidekick who joins Young Justice? WARNER BROS. ANIMATION, PLEASE CALL ME. LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN. (Via io9)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
