This applies to the impressively long-lasting series of direct-to-video DC cartoons as well. For all of its issues, Justice League Dark used its R-rating to deliver an appropriately occult tone. The Judas Contract is the horniest DC cartoon yet. Like previous DC animated films, The Judas Contract is an adaptation of a celebrated comic book storyline. The anime-inspired Teen Titans cartoon based much of its second season around the troubled geokinetic girl Terra and the conflict between her, the Titans, and their arch-nemesis mercenary Deathstroke.
Terra played a huge role in that. A key reason why is because, like in the comic, the audience got to spent a fair amount of time with her and the rest of the team over several episodes.
The Teen Titans cartoon was also smart enough to never show the Justice League. The exception is the underrated ongoing reboot Teen Titans Go, but that show is all about hilariously trolling its own fanbase. From there, the rest of their storyline involves the couple moving in together and trying to balance leadership of the team.
But more importantly, there is also a constant stream of jokes about them having sex, about to have sex, and accidentally talking about having sex. Blue Beetle still replacing canonical member Cyborg because the Justice League needed a Black guy wants to get his aggressive alien scarab armor to be more comfortable around other humans, so he volunteers at a soup kitchen and bonds with a cute girl.
Hell, even the main villain Brother Blood has the female lieutenant Mother Mayhem in his HIVE cult who loves him with a combination of religious and sexual fervor. And just like in the comic, the main tragic romance is the jovial Beast Boy trying to convince Terra to give him a shot.
Spoilers, but the Judas in Judas Contract refers to Terra Christina Ricci spying on and betraying the team on behalf of her employer, and lover, Deathstroke the late Miguel Ferrer. Deathstroke is also much older than Terra, adding a creepiness factor the film does at least acknowledge. I wanted her to be cute but not beautiful. She looked like a young girl. This little girl is a slut! Terra throws some rocks around, other Titans like Jericho and Wonder Girl get teased, and for some godforsaken reason Kevin Smith shows up.
But as a fan of both Teen Titans and inexplicably horny media, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is good enough.
