The battle between science and faith is over, and superstition won. Don't believe us? Watch the evidence, as Batman himself chooses magic over his own uber-science during last night's Batman: The Brave And The Bold.

For a season finale (which this was; it's officially the last episode of the first season, even though there was a gap of months between the most recent batch of episodes and the rest of the first season; the second season begins next month), last night's "The Fate of Equinox!" left us cold. Sure, the threat of the universe being destroyed in the battle between chaos and order sounds exciting on paper, but I've never been that interested in Equinox, the original(ish; he's based on the comics' Libra) villain chosen to hook the whole story around, and despite some nice moments, Dr. Fate wasn't up to the guest-star caliber of Aquaman, Blue Beetle or other heroes. It was fun enough, sure, but this - and last week's "Inside the Outsiders" both seemed like products of writers getting tired towards the end of the season, and especially after the "Mayhem of the Music Meister!" episode. We're hoping for a little more from "Death Race To Oblivion" when the show returns (If nothing else, there's some wit in the idea of Batman teaming with the Question to take on the Riddler), but what did you think?
