New Trailer for DC Nation Shows Amethyst, Static 

DC Nation will return as promised on January 5 according to a new trailer that also shows new footage of the animated Amethyst short as well as Static. The latter is interesting because there had been speculation that the Milestone rights may have been the cause of the CW pulling original content at the last minute in October.  The trailer promises all new content including shorts.

I wish I could say I was still remotely invested in Young Justice to even give a shit anymore.

Greg responds…

It was actually Zatanna who made that comment. And I don’t think it was all that unclear.
But, yes.

Here’s what I don’t understand about the whole DC Nation removal by Cartoon Network, besides the obvious (you know, the fact they removed the block two weeks after it returned):

Why are people blaming Young Justice’s inclusion of Stephanie Brown and the Milestone characters for it?

I’m scratching my head about why DC Comics seem to get rid of anything involving Stephanie Brown, a character who has gone by many monikers, including Spoiler, Robin, and Batgirl. They replaced her as Nightwing in the Smallville comics (they replaced her with Barbara Gordon), and hasn’t really appeared in the New 52 DC Comics universe.

DC loses rights to Milestone characters.... serves them right after the way they treated Dwayne McDuffie

Four Color Media Monitor reported on Thursday that DC Comics may have lost the rights to the Milestone Comics stable of characters, most of whom were created by the late Dwayne McDuffie, a prominent African-American comics writer and one of the architects of DC's animation department. If this CBR interview with Scott Lobdell (who I'm not a fan of, by any means) is any indication:

When asked whether there was a chance of seeing Static Shock in "Teen Titans,” Lobdell replied, “Nothing would make me happier.” However, he said "legal issues" prevent the characters from joining the title.
