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.

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
