  • New Series!
    Since hearing news of the Young Justice animated series in February, I've been waiting for to see viewers reaction to a new series, both people who know of the comic-book series, and people who don't know about it. This show really has the potential to have as much success as Teen Titans, Justice League, or even any of the Batman cartoons. It's good to know that DC is catching back up with Marvel when it comes to cartoon series, since DC's last effort was The Batman, while Marvel currently has Iron Man, Fantastic Four, and X-men. This series should be pretty cool though. 


  • The main character line-up so far is:
  • Robin( of course)
  • Superboy (wearing cargo pants!)
  • Kid Flash(no, sadly not Impulse)
  • Artemis( instead of Arrowette, apparently)
  • Miss Martian( ? that's different, but interesting)
  • Aqualad( ??? that's very different, i don't think that's Garth)
  • It's nice to see that they are sticking with the three original characters from the group, but it's also cool to see a variation in the rest of the characters. Robin's still short like on Teen Titans, but he's probably Tim Drake or people would get the show confused with Teen Titans. Miss Martian is supposedly replacing Wondergirl due to some legal issues relating to any of the "Wonder" characters. I'm going to assume that's Bart Allen since he's currently Kid Flash in canon anyway, and that's probably Cissie but in a different costume as well. The only character i'm not sure about is Aqualad, I hope this is a completely new character, and not just turning Garth into the token african-american character. That would be weird enough, but to make it weirder he has blonde hair.

  
Well, I can't wait to watch the first episode to see how this all turns out. Especially, y'know: the blonde Aqualad and the non-Arrowette archer character.

Seems like an interesting idea, but something tells me that they will clash with older Titans...

that would make for some good episodes also if their mentore where in a few of the episodes but not enough to take the focus away

@rein:  they mentioned some legal junk that isn't allowing WG or any of the other characters with strong ties to Wonder Woman thats why they have Miss Martian.

@RedK: Yeah, It's just a matter of personal preference i Wasn't really taking Legality into the matter.

@rein:
Personal prefernece aside, i would still like to see Wonder Girl too.

@rein:  while for personal preferance i think they should change arrowette's costume and keep her original name instead of artimis, get rid of Miss Martian, i like her but this is supposed to be Yong Justice not the teen titans and have WG instead.

@RedK: MM was on the young justice team (i also associate her more with YJ then The TT). But Why Is it that they changed arrowette's name? another legal issue?

I wouldn't know DC's reasons, but I think Artemis is just plain and simple a much better name than "Arrowette".

@rein:  I read all of YJ and i never saw MM on the team, as for changing arrowette's name i haven't got a clue but artimis was the god of hunting a sister of apollo and use a bow and arrow so thats where they got the name but i think it was stupid to change her name.

@RedK: I swear i remember Seeing MM in young justice.

@rein:  that might of been secret, MM was created in 2006 by Geoff Johns and first appeared in teen titans #37 but only in one panel
