cass, can you not

O, JLU, where did you go wrong?

Am watching JLU season one again. Amanda Waller is love. Luthor is (as usual) love. Amazo is adorable chess-playing love. Wonder Woman is love. Bruce is love. Even Aquaman is grumpy "Tell me who they are and dig more graves" love.

Shayera, on the other hand, rocks my world. Not just because she is the hottest sentient being to ever wear a white t-shirt -although she is- but because of how *real* she felt on those episodes. Sad, strong, determined, lost. *Human* (in the non-species-specific sense of the word *g*).

Truth be told? Sometimes it feelt like she was the only grown up over there.

PS: How come the toons, more often than not, felt more adult than the comics? Less gore but more politics. Less drama and more flirting. Fewer people swooning for their Beloveds, which is always a good thing.
