I have a bookcase (not shelf, case) that’s well past full of Star Wars novels. I’ve played the role playing games, had just about all the original run of action figures, and enjoyed the Galaxies online game until they killed it with the big revision later. So, I’m a fan.
In the episode, Darkwing is coming back as a major movie, but darker and grittier, like DC keeps trying to do with its characters for whatever reason.
“I love superheroes!” enthuses Winston Deavor, one of the major players in Incredibles 2, and it’s pretty clear that writer/director/Edna Mode Brad Bird does as well.
This is a great example of the simple, and silly, storytelling that is the Darkwing Duck comic. I think it perfectly captures the flavor of the show. If you enjoyed the cartoon, this should be right up your alley. This is my usual rebuttal when someone accuses me of taking my comics and superheroes too seriously, because let’s face it, Darkwing isn’t remotely serious.
