The Bad Batch S01E01

Basically a spin-off of the final season of The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch features five ‘deviant’ clone troopers who come together like The Dirty Dozen (click on the wiki link if you are too young to get the reference!) to take on missions that ordinary clone troopers are not equipped to handle.

GEEK OUT! JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTISGEEK OUT! JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS

TOA-still

Directed by Ethan Spaulding 
Written by Heath Corson
Starring (voices of) Matt Lanter, Sam Witwer, Jason O’Mara, Shemar Moore, Jerry O’Connell, Christopher Gorham, Rosario Dawson, Nathan Fillion, Sean Astin, Harry Lennix.

Ostensibly a sequel to Justice League War – the animated movie introduction to the New 52 continuity – Throne of Atlantis is a very loose adaptation of the storyline that ran through the Justice League and Aquaman comics from 2012-2013.

Considering that Aquaman was replaced with Shazam (the original Captain Marvel) in War, it’s clear that Throne was to be used as an introduction to Aquaman. Thus, major changes to the comic book plot were made that greatly weakened the storyline. (AND seriously, why change Mera’s costume?)

In that context, it is recommended that you skip this movie completely and go straight to the source material.

However, if you do feel the need to compare and contrast.
