Remember yesterday when I said the Lego DC Superheroes game was the best thing ever? Well, that’s because I hadn’t yet seen this clip for Lauren Faust’s DC Nation short Super Best Friends Forever (which I bet appears tomorrow, for the record). Hey, DC — screw Young Justice, screw CG Green Lantern — just make an hour-long show out of this.I guarantee there’s nothing else you could do that would engender more goodwill for DC and create more overall fans. Other than maybe giving Brave and the Bold Aquaman his own series.
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.
