Why has it taken so long for somebody to do a mashup of everyone’s favorite serial killer and my own personal favorite boy genius?

It has felt like more than just a few months since the last new episodes of Young Justice: Invasion (the best animated super-hero toon since Justice League Unlimited) and Green Lantern: The Animated Series were aired but the two shows will begin airing new eps tomorrow morning as part of the Cartoon Network’s DC Nation block of programming. And its not just these two shows that are coming back; we will also get more new DC shorts which have been just as much fun as the actual full length shows. Joining the returning Super Best Friends Forever, the Aardman Shorts, and Teen Titans Go! will be Batman of Shanghai, Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld and Justice League of Animals.
