So, I know that this is right before yet another episode, but, I just had to come say stuff.

You have two episodes that have simply blown my face off. Failsafe (my brain practically melted out of my head, I was so amazed) and Misplaced (I can't even describe my feelings for this episode). That doesn't happen very often from an animated show.

I really adore how you all have been portraying the teen/adult dynamic. It's not the cliche rebellious teens vs. overly righteous and/or idiotic adults, but it's much more...realistic. Well, as realistic as supers can be. You all do such an excellent job of getting into a teenage mindset, and that really impresses me.

M'gann, from what I can tell, either gets a lot of hate, or a lot of love. Personally, I was in the gray area, not quite sure if I liked her being around, or what. I knew I liked her "Hello, Megan!" catch phrase, and I liked that she based a lot of her knowledge off of tv (makes sense). But, now that we've seen more of her, I've come to really appreciate her as a character. She's got her reasons for her personality, and, sure, she's got some naivety, but she's also not a weak damsel in distress - and you all manage to pull that last bit off without making her come across as masculine! Which I love.

Artemis is kind of a big deal to me. I generally hate female characters like her. The strong, tough-girl who doesn't need anyone's help because she can do this, and has a major attitude. So, yes, I was less than thrilled when Artemis was introduced. But, like with M'gann, more came along, and ya'll showed up with little moments (I really warmed up to her from that one little scene in Downtime), and then a bit of her back story, and all of the sudden, Artemis' whole demeanor had meaning, and I was able to connect, understand, and love her character.

Everyone else I pretty much loved first off (big Batman fan - oh, yeah, your Batman series? My favorite. FYI. - so, Robin had no need to wiggle his way into my heart).

I also love how easily you all eased Zatanna into being a regular and new teammate (I'm assuming. I think it's safe to assume such things at this point). I didn't want her part of the team at first, but you all did such a fantastic job at giving her more time with the team, and more screen-time, that, I rather like having her around, now.

So, yeah. Thanks, well done, do more goodness. I hope to have my face blown off, and my brain melted out of my head again. Go tell everyone that they're my favorites. Yourself included.

"[My] Batman series?" Uh. I never had one. I did freelance write a bunch of episodes for "The Batman", but that hardly makes it "mine".

Otherwise, thank you!
