    Barehanded: Aya making an appearance kind of hurts since, how the Green Lantern series ended way too soon. Lobo getting revenge on Hal by telling Batman that Hal lost his ring was simply hilarious. One criticism, You'd think someone like Lobo would be able to handle the "Gs" like Hal, since spacecrafts would be a lot faster than jets?

    Cartoon Network Poland will air the last 13 episodes in December, including Barehanded, Keeping Up with the Kryptonians, Unleashed and Party Animal.

    The last 3 episode titles are unknown so far. (AFAIK)

    That's unprecedented. Instead of taking a winter hiatus after the first Saturday they want to air as much as they can before Christmas and New Years and probably air the last 3 in January.

    Honestly, I wasn't expecting them to take any kind of hiatus for the show. Considering it premiered on Christmas Eve last year (technically they were re-runs for the first 4 weeks, but still) Looking back they only took a break from airing a new episode once this past year, on April 1st, but they fixed that by airing 2 episodes on June 3rd. Now they're taking a break this weekend to make room for that Teen Titans Go! marathon, and presumably December 30th won't have a new episode either.

    I wonder if the show will have any re-runs after the season finishes its run.

    12/1: "Party Animal" was written by Paul Dini and Tim Sheridan. Dini confirms it's adapted from Alan Burnett's JLA comic (which was the same name "Party Animal", found in the 2008 "DC Universe Holiday Special"). Sheridan replied and said he just polished a couple jokes after Dini got busy. Also, fyi, Sheridan has written a couple of the webisodes.

    12/5: zap2it's upcoming times is messed up but on each individual page, there's the loglines for the next three

    Watchtower Tours
    Barehanded
    Captain Bamboozle

    Oh wow, I was wondering what a JLA Batgirl would look like! Great job by Mr. Glines :D.

    I don't think Batgirl is any of the upcoming content for Justice League Action, so I guess Mr. Glines just did this for fun or Batgirl was one of the designs he did in case they did want to use her.

    It would've been cool to see her and Supergirl team-up :cool:.

    Now I wonder if there's a design for Robin laying around...maybe Catwoman too ;)?

    Batgirl looks pretty cute. Now the question is, should she appear, who will voice her? Tara Strong? Mae Whitman? Ashlyn Selich? Danielle Judovits? Or a new actress?

    I think there would probably be a small chance that they'd have a past Batgirl VA reprise the role, if she were to appear that is, though I also think there's probably a good chance they would get someone new as they have with 60% of the cast of JLA.

    With Tara Strong already voicing Harley, I think that would kind of throw her out of the running.

    In regards to the Batgirl design, Shane Glines commented on Facebook it was done for a Burger King or McDonald's promotion.

    Feels like a random reason to do a character design for a major character, but I can't complain about getting to see what JLA Batgril would've looked like ;).

    I guess we finally know what he would've looked like had he ever made an actual appearance ;).

    He's got some anime hair going on there :p.

    Is there a petition to get this show on the untitled DC streaming service?

    It's probably more effective to wait for a social media account to appear then have all fans repeatedly leave posts on it requesting said show.
