    Man Of Inaction

    We may just need to take a page from Japan and how they do it - period. I don't see too many other ways around fixing the problem with current-gen action cartoons, besides firing all the mediocre people and enforcing a regime of heavy training involving this medium and doing it right.
    I'd love to see Christy Marx, Buzz Dixon, J.M.S. (if he could be persuaded), Wally Burr, Flint Dille, George Arthur Bloom (who doesn't get the respect he deserves) get the chance to make new shows. I don't know why Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, or Greg Weisman (who all got their starts on '80s shows) haven't/won't call in some of the veterans of the game.

    I don't know if doing it like Japan does will really work in the states. A bunch of different companies and each having their own stake in the project dividing up all the rights would never happen here. Disney wouldn't allow it for Marvel nor would Warner Brothers do it for DC. Creatively speaking, how do they do it in Japan?

    Shows based off of toy lines can be good even great. If the people involved take the time to make a well thought out universe and write interesting programming. Man Of Action doesn't even try, they've found a formula and if it ain't broke they won't fix it.

    Even after like seven years they just don't know cartoons. they are not hacks, as they are actually talented comic book professionals however their combined work as a group just does not match their individual work. I could never call Joe Kelly a hack, he is and always will be one of my favorite comic book writers.

    I also still stand by Generator Rex which I believe was a good show when it did not force comedy in.

And we won't even talk about how it would have worked in perfectly if the Collector would have shown up...

    Agreed on Generator Rex - That, however, is the only show I legitimately enjoyed from them (despite the humor, too!)... Real shame.

    You just illustrated in a few sentences better plotting, emotional build up, humor, and dramatic tension than Man Of Inaction has done in the 3 episodes of AA I've seen.

    Who knows maybe Falcon will get to talk to the Hulk about it later on. But considering no one cares about the Dr. Banner/Hulk emotional/psychological struggle, I'm betting that Hawkeye, Iron Man, and Thor will make fun of him.

    As for Generator Rex.... it was Ben 10 with the names changed. Snarky, teenage white male hero (check), one relevant female character (check), cool old guy (check), a large assortment of villains that change into other things (check), monsters/aliens (its all the same, it doesn't matter) (check).

    I debated awhile with myself on whether or not Rex was Hispanic. But he's like Artemis, if you have to ask, then it's not obvious, so you can't tell. He's ambiguously brown at best. Of course if he were, then CN cancelled their first show with a Hispanic lead. Not surprising since they've also cancelled Juniper Lee, Class Of 3,000, (and never rerun them) and I Heart Tuesdays will never happen.
