he looks pretty cool in that pic 
it's a neat image 
but what's the deal with Arrowette? 
is that really the best name they could have thought up? 
it makes me hate Yougn Justice before even reading/watching it 
Arrowette.....LAME!

@Shadowdoggy: 
I remember it form way back in the day.
The series was a lot lighter than most so it worked. 
Every thing I've read about the toon suggests she's gonna be called Artemis.

(sigh of relief) 
but awesome pic, either way

If they wanted Aqualad, why did they kill Tempest? This just seems pointless...

Why would anyone seriously use "Lad" in their supername?

Why would anyone take up any title with the word Aqua in it? Their too prone to dying because their lame powers are useless away from water.

@Gearo:
so, you're an anti-aquanite aren't you 
man, 2010 and you guys are still spouting your hate-speech! 
fish powers are just as good as any other power, okay? 
....pffft, racist.....

Tell me about it. Which hero would pick a name with lad or lass in it? That's the only thing I don't like about the Legion of Superheroes.

LOL! I was thinking the same thing!!
 
But isn't this new Aqualad just a vain attempt of introducing the character before he appears in the show, who, in my opinion, was only made black to add cultural diversity to the cartoon.

Might be wrong but I think they've pretty much retconed that out now.@Portrait said:

Why do the hack writers we love kill off any characters when we know they'll bring 'em back or replace them?
Nightcrawler? Who ever goes in Fantastic Four: 3?

Why would any of them use boy? If I was Superboys age I'd come up with some thing else.

I know where you're comin' from but at the same time I'm all for a little diversity. Most of the characters we love were created at a time when a large part of the country they were created in still practiced segregation after all.
