I’d like to rekindle the conversation of GLTAS’s (hypothetical) season 2 with a question. If Green Lantern DID return as a DC Universe original, would you like to see it take a more mature approach the way Young Justice did? We’ve seen what Young Justice looks like without children’s network censorship. Frankly, I think leaning toward PG-13 worked to the show’s benefit.
But that begs the question, should Green Lantern do the same? Without Cartoon Network to limit GL’s content, the possibilities are endless. But let’s not forget, this started as a children’s show. Would it not be jarring to suddenly witness Atrocitus ripping somebody’s arm off in a season 2? How far should DCU push things? Hard to say.
So should the show stick to its established tone and remain a child friendly cartoon? Or would you like to see them take the gloves off and add more violence, blood, and darker content? Is there anything you’d like to see in the series that you know Cartoon Network would NEVER allow?
What’re your thoughts?
