    First of all, apologies to Zelf, my reply came off way more defensive and way less funny than I was targeting. I should never post late at night.

No need to apologize. I didn't think anything of it.

    Cyborg in the league is revisionist, but it's a revisionism that's been comic book cannon since 2011, and was first used way back in 1985 on the Superfriends cartoon.

Yes, but Cyborg is so much a part of the Teen Titans that shoehorning him into the Justice League made him look like he's there just to be the token black man. They could have easily picked another character more closely associated with the team. Like nigma said, Vixen would have been a great choice.

    I know that the Dark Knight trilogy are better films than those two versions of Batman, by pretty much every applicable standard of movie reviewing, but it doesn’t stop me from enjoying the other ones. Though I still can't watch Batman Returns, as I can't find any connection to the source material, sometimes you need to tell Tim Burton, "Stop."

I don't care for Batman Returns either, but I don't really care for any Batman movie outside of the Nolan ones. The Burton films haven't aged well and are too campy for me. The Schumacher ones just stink. I can watch the Adam West one just for laughs though.

    That’s another advantage Marvel has by doing it right. Deviations from the source material arose organically thorough the individual films before the team ups started. DC hits us in the face with them all at once.


The Cyborg thing is weird. I think he got put in the Nu52 Justice League (which the movie follows) because people my age are creating comics now and they're remembering when he was put into the Super Friends.

At the time that made sense because the Titans were huge in comics, meaning he was a well known character, but had no presence in the cartoon world, so his team wasn't there.

I think the powers that Be at Warner Brothers expect comics to be a lot more stable and less likely to rewrite their entire history than they do.

Which is why the Justice League day comic was the first part of a story in a universe that's already been rewritten.
