We are currently in a very dry spell when it comes to great superhero animation. Dragon Ball Super seems to be worse than GT, Sailor Moon Crystal is infamously poor, the Marvel animation is just bad and Cartoon Network refuses to air any serious superhero animation. Though I like Teen Titans Go and Vixen, they are hardly the best.

As such, it is time for us to go deep into our brains and prey to our blood gods and wonder if were in charge of creating a totally new superhero TV series, what would it be about? If we suddenly was given power over Cartoon Network, Toei animation or Disney XD and could boss everyone about and cancel shows for no god damn reason.

Remember to think about the tone, the plot, the characters etc. and know that no suggestion is a stupid suggestion.

Also, it has to be original and not a continuation of an old series.

For myself:

Rating: 12A/PG-13
Comic Universe: DC

My series would be about a group of villains and heroes who have united in common cause to stop a new (and I mean actually new) threat consisting of Poison Ivy (leader), Cassandra Cain, the Question, Rocket, Livewire, Reverse Flash (Daniel West) and Thundermind. Not trusted by the Justice League or the Secret Society of Super-Villains, they take a grey stance in saving the world.

The tone would be dark then series like Young Justice, but not grimdark. It would deal with issues that other series seem to have been scared to cover like LGBTQ+ issues and the greyness between villain and hero.

Have fun (:

P.S. Sorry for not doing the open threads lately, I have had sleep problems lately and I have found myself falling asleep in odd times.
