Cartoon Network (ended 2006)
|I'm watching the Static Shock 2-part episode "A League Of Their Own" on Disney XD where the Justice League had guest-starred on (btw that cartoon relied TOO HEAVILY on DCAU guest-stars to boost it's popularity), and I noticed that Braniac is the main villain of the episode. Does Braniac being the villain in this episode in any way, shape, or form contradict, conflict, or mess up the canon storyline of the Cadmus arc?|
|I referenced the Cadmus arc because it ended with Braniac being the main true villain at the end of it all. Also Braniac's connection with the Cadmus arc (and basically the Cadmus arc in general) was a huge storyline that was VERY carefully (& cleverly I might add) constructed from Braniac & Luthor storylines that had happened from the "Superman: The Animated Series" cartoon in addition to other things that had happened in "Justice League", thus keeping with the continuity of the DCAU and establishing that the shows were indeed connected within the same universe. I was just wondering if that 2-part episode of "Static Shock" had ruined the continuity/timeline of Braniac's storyline in the DCAU during the Cadmus arc.|
''A League Of Their Own'' HAS to take place after ''Twilight'', right?
Because in ''Twilight'' when Superman hears about Brainiac being back he says it can't be true because he destroyed him. If ''A League...'' had taken place first then it would've been Bats, Flash, J'onn, Hawkgirl, GL and Static who destroyed Brainiac. Surely Supes wouldn't take credit for other people's deeds so I say just forget ''League of Their Own''. The JLU writers obviously did when they sent the Legion Of Doom into outer space to find Brainiac when they could've just went to Dakota considering he was destroyed there last.
I doubt the ''Static'' crossovers are meant to have any impact on the main DCAU and are just for fun.
|What i never quite understood about brainiac was how they manage to overcome the 1.0 subroutine and become a peaceful race.|
I can't help but notice that everyone here is referencing the Brainiac in the Main DC Comic storyline when discussing Brainiacs story. However you have to remember that the Brainiac in this Continuity is vastly different from his comic counterpart. This Brainiac was originally the super-computer for Planet Krypton. Just before it exploded Brainiac downloaded his core program and all information regarding Krypton into a back-up body and ship he had waiting, then went on a rampage across the stars destroying planets after learning every piece of information about them. I don't remember much about the DC Comics Brainiac, just that he started out as some evil robot, not related to Krypton in any way, shape or form. Although the part about him always having a back-up copy of himself is true, but I think this Brainiac doesn't make his copies until just before he is destroyed each time.
