As we celebrate DC Universe: Year One, I wanted to take a second and look back at all of the memories from the service and our phenomenal Community. There are so many moments that bring a joy to me, but I wanted to share some of my favorites with all of you!
One of those favorites has to be the actual launch of DC Universe. When I look back now, it’s quite clear how much we’ve grown and expanded, but hindsight is 20/20, as they say. Back in September of 2018, we had no idea how much would change over the course of the year, but we all had a vision for it. The fact that our vision of what DC Universe could be has become a reality (and is still growing and evolving) is a tremendous source of happiness and pride for me.
Another moment of delight for me is something that continues to this day - and will keep on continuing - our DC Fan Ambassadors! To see the delight in the Community from those who received this honor to the outpouring of support and congratulations from other members will always and forever bring a smile to my face.
Of course, I can’t forget to mention th e Watch Alongs! From our Original programs to “pop-up” matinees, the Watch Alongs are some of my fondest memories. I can still remember the first one I ever did – the series premiere of Doom Patrol. I love that we have a group of Watch Along regulars, or WALers as I call them, but every week I see new faces that quickly become regulars too!
While these moments are some of my happiest and proudest memories, the one thing that brings me the most pleasure and jubilance will permanently be the Community members themselves. The amount of support you show one another and the friendships that I have seen built is nothing short of amazing. Whether you’re a member that posts and discusses daily, a member who prefers to spectate and respond only on occasion, or a member that falls in between the two, you are all the source of my most cherished and prized memories. It is because of all of you that this Community is one of the most positive Communities I have ever been a part of and I look forward to even more conversations and memories with all of you in the years to come.
