I Am So Gonna Hurk

Booster Gold and Skeets helped Batman save the world from Starro the galaxy-conquering starfish in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode "The Siege of Starro, Part One" this past Friday night. Booster was attacked by Ace the Bat-Hound (I love that dog) and expanded his team-up with Batman to include B'Wana Beast, Captain Marvel, and Firestorm. That's some pretty good company if you've got to save the world!

This is the beginning of the end for Batman: The Brave and the Bold: only 26 new episodes remain. There are still 13 episodes yet to be aired from the second half of Season 2, and the entire 13 episodes of Season 3. It may be a little early for mourning, however. We probably won't see Season 3 in America until next fall, given how stingy Cartoon Network has been in doling out episodes in previous seasons. At least we know that there are Booster Gold-centric episodes remaining (as J.M. DeMatteis has previously admitted that he wrote a Blue and Gold episode for the series.

It's disappointing to think that this show is already a dead man walking. The cancellation was announced back at Comic Con in July. Warner Brothers wants to restore the Batman cartoons to a more serious tone. I'm going to miss a Batman cartoon that that can homage comic books like The Brave and the Bold #28 and Sugar and Spike in the same episode, but if the writers can find a way to work Booster Gold into the new series, I won't hold a grudge. (I'm still waiting for my time-traveling Booster Gold appearance in the serious-as-a-heart-attack Batman Beyond Universe.)
