It's been a busy week here at the DCAU Review but we're not stopping as we bring you our third episode of the week, this one is standard fare however, discussing the Superman: The Animated Series episode "The Prometheon." The Good Brothers discuss an episode that's light on dialogue and action and with a plot that compares to classic monster films. Hear discussions on some not-so subtle commentary on why certain people fear "aliens", a soundtrack that was tasked with carrying a larger-than-normal load, and why a lack of dialogue in this episode was necessary. Plus, some visual nods and homages to several of "The King" Jack Kirby's pieces including a famous Marvel Comics cover and more on this week's DCAU Review!

    Ep. 173 - DCAU Character Spotlight - Blight

    1:09:59

    As discussed on last week's episode, the Good Brothers are trying out a different kind of review this week, as they change things up from the standard episode/scorecard format to highlight a single character in the DCAU. With this month being all Batman Beyond episodes, the fellas thought it would be poignant to talk about arguably, the Future Knight's greatest adversary Derek Powers aka Blight. Hear the hosts discuss his entire DCAU story arc from beginning to end, the dual-natured threat of both of Derek Powers' personas, and his place in both Batman Beyond and the DCAU's history. Plus his greatest moments on screen, his appearances in DCAU tie-in material and main DC Continuity as well as a look back at his lackluster representation in action figure form. Plus a discussion of Sherman Howard's unforgettable performance that brought Blight to life, Blight's memorable music moments and more in depth discussion. All of this, a preview of next month's reviews and much more await you on this week's all new DCAU Review!

    1:04:12

Plus speculation as to why Zeta's look changes from this appearance to his own show, Cree Summer's heavy lifting in voice acting and some DCAU Review head canon for who Agent Bennet's grandfather may have been.
