An additional update on the news of Green Lantern: The Animated Series no longer in production is now available on The World's Finest.
I think I'm more disappointed in Green Lantern being cancelled than I am with Young Justice. I have been enjoying Green Lantern more than Young Justice for awhile and it only has one season, as opposed to two. It also does feel disappointing that they're being replaced with a new Batman series and a new Teen Titans series. It is a shame that they couldn't have all four of them and expand DC Nations into two hours. At least there's a pretty good chance of Green Lantern ending the season on good note. Hopefully they can give a nice ending to the Razer/Aya relationship too.
Well, I'm definitely disappointed about GL and YJ's (possible) cancellation. I'm quite sure I'll enjoy TTG! and BtB, but GL and YJ both deserve a longer run (especially GL).
I was also hoping that GL:TAS would be successful so it could make up for the live-action movie being unsuccessful...
As disappointed as I am with Young Justice ending, I'm even more torn up about Green Lantern.
Cancelling it after one season feel like such a waste, especially with the great action and plot that the show's been delivering on a weekly basis. In the prime of its youth, CN just kills it... getting rid of all that potential!
Honestly, I would be fine if they just ended Young Justice but kept Green Lantern to go along with Beware The Batman. I'd take Green Lantern in a heartbeat over Teen Titans Go, even having loved the original, because from what I've heard about TTG, it just doesn't hold up in comparison. I don't have a problem with Beware the Batman, but having a comedy show, a show that's reliant on an old continuity that lasted for 5 seasons, take the place of one of the best action shows on the air right now seems like a monumental waste.
Want to try and make a difference? Urge friend and fans to buy the DVDs, iTunes episodes, etc. No illegal downloading, no excuses, but buying. A big wave of merchandise purchases (i.e. money) is the only way Cartoon Network will make notice of the demand for this show.
GL had so much more ground to cover that hadn't been seen before. And for yet another Batman and another go at Teen Titans? I guess Cartoon Network just likes more of the same. Well, I wouldn't count on much for either of those Not with a Superman movie coming, something will get canned for a Superman series CN won't support beyond one season.
Why is it whenever I have the slightest bit of interest in a show...It dies prematurely? This, Spectacular Spidey, Wolverine and the X-Men... *sigh* is it worth getting into a super hero cartoon nowadays?
Sad about GL:TAS ending.
About YJ... I'm only mad they didn't cancel it sooner.
Wow CN has done everything I hoped they wouldn't, GLTAS was the last straw. I really have no interest in the upcoming TTG or that Batman show. CN was really the only cable channel I watched. And the only reason for that was GLTAS and Young Justice. WB/DC now have only two things I am kind of interested in... "Man Of Steel" and their DC DTVs, but even the DTV's look like they are not going to be going on for much longer. I plan on skipping Flashpoint as that is just the starting point for them to make Nu52 junk... Bleghhh...
So yeah, I am kind of depressed now, lol. What can I watch, what will I do?... Maybe I could move to Marvel/Disney, lol.

I am sad to see Green Lantern cancelled. It was an extremely well written show. It made my like Hal Jordan for the first time ever and really made me care for a Red Lantern as well as Aya. Plus Saint Walker was fun and Kilowog is always great to see.
This series was better than the live action move by miles. Heck I'd rank it on par with the best of the DCAU. This is coming from a guy who was initially very against this show due to CGI, but this show really won me over as soon as the first episode started.
All-new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series are slated to air on Cartoon Network for the month of February 2013. Check out The World's Finest for spoiler-free episode logline details and more!
Please note that spoiler loglines provided by the network can be found on the Green Lantern: The Animated Series subsite.
"Love Is a Battlefield" has some interesting bits revealed. Not sure how Atrocitus fits in if the Manhunters are the ones invading Zamaron. The back half of February seems really exciting.
Shame the Larfleeze one is so far back. Really want to see him animated. One thing I wonder is how they'll approach his ability to make living constructs out of his victims, or if he'll have them at all.
And "Larfleeze" would be episode 23, so only 3 more episodes after that for the season and (not sure if this is spoiler or not. I think not, but just to be safe...)
so that also makes me wonder what will happen after "Larfleeze"...
Otherwise, I'm definitely looking forward to more GL:TAS and YJ
Just refreshed myself on what the orange ring and battery can do. Hopefully they stick to what color it can drain and what color can resist it but I'm interested on how powerful it really is. Ah, who am I kidding, I just can't wait to see how Larfleeze, himself, turns out.And "Larfleeze" would be episode 23, so only 3 more episodes after that for the season and (not sure if this is spoiler or not. I think not, but just to be safe...)
Hmm, I'd guess another 'soft' prelude to a two part finale like the first half of the season. Guess that means no Dex-Starr or Alan Scott...so that also makes me wonder what will happen after "Larfleeze"...
