Young Justice

Young Justice premieres this Friday on Cartoon Network.

Based on the DC comic and similar fare like Teen Titans, Young Justice follows the Dick Grayson version of Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Miss Martian, Superboy and Green Arrow proteges Speedy and Artemis.

The show is set in Earth-16, a DC Multiverse world, and corresponds to the present time of our world a time period Vietti has called “a new age of heroes. The recently founded (three to four years in activity) Justice League is a powerful organization of superheroes who find themselves becoming “high-powered, high-wattage celebrities” tracked closely by the public. As it grows increasingly difficult for the Justice League to operate outside the spotlight, the supervillains take advantage of their opponents’ prominence while becoming better at organizing and working under the radar. Meanwhile, the teenaged sidekicks of several Justice League members feel they are ready to graduate on to the next level and become more independent. Consequently, Batman organizes the teens to fill the need for a covert operations team while keeping their protégés under their authority

  1. Aqualad is the black dude, right? Miss Martian? This is the first I have heard of her.
    I missed most of the premiere and caught the last few minutes of it. Figures that bats is the one who organizes them to do their thing. The man is a master strategist. So who is the leader of this group? I would like to see how robin acts in this one, like the robin from Teen titans with a little batman type attitude. Look forward to seeing the new episodes in January.

  2. I assume that Aqualad is the black dude but in the comics he is white.

    Miss Martian was part of the Teen Titans. She served as a member of the Teen Titans during the year between the events depicted in Infinite Crisis and the “One Year Later” stories.

    I dvr’d it so I haven’t seen it yet ,but I am looking forward to seeing it.

    Batman is the man as always!!

  3. All the DC Universe “Earths”… ugh. We watched this whole first season. It had its moments, although a little slow. But the whole “Earth 16” thing was not apparent, or at least 99% of the people watching are going to just see the regular DC universe in it.

    Here is our take on Season 1 with a lot of pics, and more humor than the show, if your are interested:

  4. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll have to check it out.
