‘Scorn of the Star Sapphire’
This Friday, Wonder Woman makes her debut in Batman Brave and the Bold on Cartoon Network. The short pre-titles adventure is heavily influenced by the Linda Carter Wonder Woman TV series and even features her gent in danger, Steve Trevor and the familiar signature tune. One of the timeless icons of superhero mythology, Wonder Woman was nearly adapted for the TV screen again by Ally McBeal creator David Kelley, but luckily nothing came to pass there. From the 40’s to the 70’s and beyond, Wonder Woman is a symbol of independence and strength for children and adults and is one of the most instantly recognizable characters in comics.
Also in this episode Batman and Hal Jordan work to take down Green Lantern’s greatest enemy, Star Sapphire. With his big screen debut just a few weeks away, it’s surprising that it has taken so long for Hal Jordan to make an appearance on the Brave and the Bold cartoon (he has been preceded by fellow Lanterns Guy Gardner and G’Nort), but maybe it’s all in the timing.
Batman: The Brave and the Bold’s new episode ‘Scorn of the Star Sapphire’ premieres tomorrow night on the Cartoon Network
