Designs Revealed for New Characters on Young Justice series

Posted by Knight Train (113 posts) - - Show Bio

Someone at Comic-Con was given trading cards for the new season of Young Justice, and on them were designs of characters that supposedly will be featured.

So far i think the YJ series is just okay, but with the inclusion of one of my favorite characters, Rocket, in the next season means that i just can't wait.
I was hoping that they were going to bring in Static but bringing in Rocket makes much more sense and i am more than pleased.
I wish these images were better quality but oh well.
I think they all look great design wise, and the Joker's depiction is a welcomed change from previous animated appearances.   

What do you guys think about Young Justice, the inclusion of these characters and the designs of them?

EDIT: I see someone has already posted these images, although i would love to spark discussion on the redesign of certain characters and the inclusion of Milestone alumni Rocket


 Hugo Strange, Monsieur Mallah, Brain, Zatanna, Rocket, and Wolf.

 Ocean-Master, Vandal Savage, Count Vertigo, Queen Bee, and the Joker

Looks pretty promising, even if Joker's character design looks a little iffy....

@Dracade102: Oh really, i think his design is pretty fly. Reminds me of like an anime design or something

@Knight Train: I could never get myself into anime or it's style... But I think I'll see this Joker in action before I make my final say on his design.

Joker looks weird

Oh i hope so much that with the inclusion of Rocket, that both she becomes a regular member and her mentor is Icon. That would make my year

@Dracade102: I can understand that. I'm just always happy when somebody takes chances and makes changes, it deserves respect i think. But I wonder who they'll get to voice him. Mark Hamill would be the obvious choice, but i see them going in another direction with it. Also I doubt the characters appearance would be more than a one or two episode arc.

They all look pretty cool to me, though the images a little dark to tell much. I'm surprised to see Rocket instead of the more obvious choice, Static. I wonder what they are going to do with her in the show. I can't imagine you could use Rocket without Icon. 
 
The show has been pretty great so far. It's easily my favorite since JLU. Hell, I wish DC's comic reboot was a lot more like it.

I'm not familiar with the Milestone characters... I love knowing the Identity of "The Light"

#9 Posted by The Lobster (1514 posts) - - Show Bio

Well now I know who all the member of The Light are. 
 
I can't wait for the Joker episode...well...once they start releasing more episodes.

@Knight Train: The Best bet is John Dimaggio, since he played Joker in Under The Red Hood with Bruce Greenwood as Batman. Since Bruce Greenwood is Batman in this series, than John Dimaggio will probably be Joker as well.

I don't think I know who Rocket and Wolf are.
Is it just me or does Zatanna look like she is as young as YJ

@The Lobster : He's the only bet since Mark Hamil retired from doing the voice.
#13 Edited by Dernman (15115 posts) - - Show Bio

Just looked Rocket up. Ya I know her. The new costume threw me off.

#14 Posted by The Lobster (1514 posts) - - Show Bio
@I'maDC/ImageGuy!: He's not retired, he's just going to be more picky about his appearance as the Joker. He said he'd return if they did an animated adaption of The Killing Joke. So I don't think he's retired. But I honestly do think it's time to move on and find someone new. Let him and Kevin Conroy do some other roles for a bit. 
 
@Dernman: Well her father is still alive in this series, he appeared in the first two episodes. So maybe Zatanna becomes part of the Young Jutsice team. That would be pretty cool.

Rockets new costume is better then the last one IMO.

#16 Posted by Knight Train (113 posts) - - Show Bio
@The Lobster : If i recall Zatanna appeared in one of the first YJ episodes as an adult and a member of the League.

Which episode cause I've watched them all, and the only person who appears is Zatanna's father Zatara.

Hopefully Zatanna and rocket become the newest members of the team... Since Zatara is apart of the JLA maybe Zatanna is really young in the series, making Zatara Zatanna's mentor.... Rocket without Icon?... So who would be her mentor!?! And who/what is Wolf!?!?!?

@The Lobster : could've sworn i saw her in the backround at one point, probably wrong though. I'm not sure i want her joining the YJ, i'd rather just have Static and Rocket ;)

Joker makes me think of a young David Bowie playing the role. Which is different but could be bad ass.

They look a little weird

#24 Posted by Sinestro2828 (1511 posts) - - Show Bio

Honestly, the new Joker is alot less impressive in design than the Bruce Tim version of him, and his voice and mannerisms seem kinda forced rather than natural (not as good or as appropriate as his voices in the Bruce Tim animates series era, Batman: Under the Redhood, or even Batman: The Brave & the Bold). The only things I really liked about the new Joker was his use of knives and the gloves he used to control Ivy's killer plants.

I was also bummed by how the Injustice League turned out to be just a cover/frontmen for The Light instead of being the real masterminds...I mean, how can Joker NOT be part of the Inner Circle when they have another fan favorite like Lex Luthor on the team and even second rate villains like The Brain & Ocean Master in the fold? I was kinda hoping that each member of the Light's inner circle would be the arch enemies of the Justice League's leaders, instead they're basically just a collection of schemers (not likely to face the League in an epic showdown in the end or anything, it makes sense for them to operate under the radar for now, but it seems apparent they'd be screwed without other, tougher villains to fight for them). Ghul was a cool addition, though I still think Joker would have been better (The Injustice League's lineup is overall a much more well balanced team of villains).

Because Joker is more of a lonar, Most of the time when he's with a team he's usually just a hired gun.

I can't wait to see more of Rocket in season 2, they only showed her a few times but she does become a member of YJ, and seems like both her and Aqualad are going to have a "thing".

#27 Posted by herrweis (433 posts) - - Show Bio

these charecters have all already been featured in the show.none are new

#28 Posted by Knight Train (113 posts) - - Show Bio

@herrweis: Yeah, but none of these had featured in August last year... when this was posted.

Hate this Teen Zatanna,

gimme Older Zatanna any day

Queen B, is so hot, finally some big bazoongas in YJ

#30 Posted by X9 (757 posts) - - Show Bio

: Hate this Teen Zatanna.

Agreed, she creeps me out. I see her and I can't stop thinking "Weren't you supposed to be 10 years older than the rest of the team? I mean, you used to flirt with Batman AND Barry Allen" :P

About the Queen B thing... she's not real, man. Just a cartoon. (hehe)

Plus, the rest of the main female characters are arround 15, so the sizes fit...
