Judging by the new Batman Legacy and Young Justice toy lines Mattel is uniting all of its DC Comics properties under the “DC Universe” banner. I can’t really say if this is a good move or not, but I think it gives them more freedom to mess around with whatever the core line ends up being. Plus, they can move almost seamlessly from Batman Legacy to Superman Legacy to whatever the next big thing is without the headache of launching a whole new line every time. So I’m leaning towards good for right now.
Aside from the intolerable voice of Jesse McCartney coming out of Robin I really like the new Young Justice cartoon. It hasn’t captured me like Earth’s Mightiest Heroes or even Thundercats, but it’s solid. Robin’s horrible voice might be affecting me more than it should, but it really bothers me. Even my three-year-old son knows it isn’t right. Teen Robin shouldn’t sound like a six-year-old girl.
