It may be the Atom's time to shine but unfortunately he happens to be in one of the poorest-animated episode of the series so far. I have never seen posing this bad. I don't know what the hell is wrong with the JL boarders but they're TERRIBLE. This has nothing to do with the script or story, I'm just looking at the visuals and shaking my head. I'm not talking about the CG. I'm talking about the 2D. The character acting is weak and unemotional. When Wonder Woman asked Batman why he had those missles on his ship, she looked like a cyborg.
I don't blame Dong Woo (i assume it's them because they've been trying to mimic LOTTO with camera shaking/blurring), it's not their fault they're given bad boards and layouts to work from. I hope that when TT eventually ends, those boarders can get promoted to a big time show like this and really stand out. There's a reason why TT is up for a storyboarding Annie and JLU is not.
Story wise... this is just one of those generic battle filler episodes that has no real character progression... is placed amidst bleak war backgrounds... ugh. There are three types of episodes in this show.. weak comedy episodes(you know which), strong character focused episodes, and these bleak battleground episodes (like initiation and hawk & dove). I could use more of the character episodes and less of these.
