Let’s overthink the teaser for a second. So Batman’s in the post-apocalyptic future, and goes back to the past. Back in the past, he stuffs a laser up the Statue of Liberty’s nose so his friends can find it in the future. What virus was Batman looking for a cure for in the future? Did he not end up curing it and changing the future? Or was he supposed to cure the virus in order to ensure the Kamandi future?
Here’s a good question: why would Batman want the Kamandi future? Instead of shoving a laser up a statue’s nose to save 2 people in the future, why not change the future to something a little less post-apocalyptic? Like the Legion of Super Heroes future?
Still, I am admittedly overthinking this, and the teaser did successfully set the stage for later episodes.
As for the rest of the episode, it wasn’t bad. The animation has a few nice touches thrown in, like with Gentleman Ghost turning visible whenever he gets hit with nth metal. The character was visually interesting, and his evil plan was simple, but effective.
|Come on, that just looks cool.|
|Voicing another bald character? Looks like you've been typecast.|
|Who wouldn't want to see Constantine snark at this guy?|
|Maybe it was just so we could see this bit of awesome?|
