First and foremost, the relationship of Superboy and Miss Martian is dissolved... Miss Martian apparently left Superboy for Lagoon Boy over the time skip, but Superboy doesn't seem to be over Miss Martian. Returning from the Clayface mission, she runs up and kisses Lagoon Boy and Connor was annoyed by it.

Zatanna and Rocket ARE graduated into the League...

first few minutes and mind is already going a mile a minute! discuss discuss discuss!!!

edit: Nightwing, Miss Martian, and Superboy are NOT in the league, but Zatanna mentions that membership is open to them.

Five year time skip between seasons... sheesh. I guess they needed an excuse to use younger characters?

On side note, Tim Curry as Godfrey = awesome

I'm kinda disappointed Nightwing, Miss Martian and Superboy aren't league members, I was for sure they were Justice League members acting as mentors like Red Tornado, Black Canary, Captain Atom, etc did with them in season one...but they aren't. I wonder why they didn't want to join the league...?

#4 Posted by Ravager4 (1627 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe they preferred being a part of the Yj team? I don't know

And I guess we know why MM ended up with Lagoon Boy... with how he can increase his size like that... *cough*

#5 Posted by redbird3rdboywonder (3864 posts) - - Show Bio

So Robin is now Tim but I think Wally probably graduated to full on Flash since Dick's now Nightwing

#6 Posted by Ravager4 (1627 posts) - - Show Bio

So no sign or mention of Artemis, Aqualad, or Kid Flash... yet, anyway.

#7 Edited by Bestostero (5618 posts) - - Show Bio

honestly, i think what happened with Megan is that she probably grew up and felt comfortable as her white martian self...and i think that lead her to relate with Lagoon Boy more since he looks different as well. Or maybe she was impressed that he was comfortable in his own skin...or something to that effect.

Black Lightning is in the league, YES YES YES YES!!!

I thought it was so great that they ended season 2's first episode the same way season 1's first episode ended! very clever.

Now where the hell is Aqualad? Artemis? Red Arrow? I think its so interesting that these three aren't addressed yet because these three are the ones i would put in the "Fallen comrade" episode in "Salvage"

but Wally is still...?

Amazing premiere! Awesome first episode.

#8 Posted by Ravager4 (1627 posts) - - Show Bio

Lobo being his awesome self and kicking Wonder Girl's ass was my own personal high point.

@Bestostero: Where did you get all of this? ahhh...

Zatanna joining the league :((( I was hoping they could explore more of her character in Season 2... how sad.

#10 Posted by Vincent92 (261 posts) - - Show Bio

idk, but the time skip is pretty big, and from the hints that nightwing was giving robin i think they had jason as robin and they don't want tim to die like him

Agreed. Also you beat me to this topic by a couple of mins. I belive that they broke SB and Ms. M up to make way for SB and WG. on another note though wheres Dr.Fate?

#12 Posted by Bestostero (5618 posts) - - Show Bio

im not sure what my personal highlight is just yet...but i think im leaning towards the lobo/cassie/batgirl bit...

by chance does anyone know how did bumblebee and mal duncan become heroes in the comics? for me it doesnt make sense for them to all of the sudden be heroes now...granted its been five years...

#13 Posted by danhimself (22292 posts) - - Show Bio

not sure I like the time skip....on one hand we get Nightwing!!! on the other hand there's everything else...like where's Artemis, Kid Flash, and Aqualad...what happened with Red Arrow and Roy? Is Kid Flash now the Flash? to many questions

Could someone pretty please provide me a link to stream this episode? I don't live in this States and this show isn't on Cartoon Network here in Greece :(

#20 Posted by teamextrodinary15 (2217 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah I loved Wonder Girl. The part with her, Batgirl and Lobo was my favorite part!

#21 Posted by krspaceT (1463 posts) - - Show Bio

@Bestostero: Whatever happened to Supermartian is obviously A; not so bad seeing as the two can actually work together still and B; its not over, on either the show or fanfiction.

My honorable mention moment goes to Tim Curry. Well, Tim Curry's voice, really.

@redbird3rdboywonder: It's clearly growing into a mullet. It looks ok but I'd have preferred he grew it out long like he did in animated TT.

Am I the only one who thinks it's wierd that Jaime (Blue Beetle) hasn't explained to the team WHY he's "talking to himself"? Also I really hope Wally graduated to the role of "the Flash" but if so where's Bart? I needs my Impulse! Finally, does anyone know what Conner's alias is now? Considering how Dick graduated to Nightwing I don't think it'd be fair for Conner to still go around calling himself "Superboy"... it sucks that Clark hasn't gotten old and gone off world yet.

#30 Posted by Vortex13 (12223 posts) - - Show Bio

It was cool, I'm still waiting for things to be explained though, hopefully they will in upcoming episodes. Sooo many changes lol.

#31 Posted by Dernman (14755 posts) - - Show Bio

It's cool we get new characters and all but I'm not happy with the time jump.  Could this be only for invasion to finish up the story of what happened in those missing hours then they will go back to what it was before and slowly reintroducing the characters.

#32 Posted by Bestostero (5618 posts) - - Show Bio

@_Pinnacle: i doubt it...Superboy seems to be the only codename Conner ever uses.

#33 Posted by Jnr6Lil (7689 posts) - - Show Bio

This episode was so confusing. I don't even know what happened.

#34 Posted by Sam27 (2 posts) - - Show Bio

Can someone please post a link so that i could watch it? :)

#35 Posted by redbird3rdboywonder (3864 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jnr6Lil: Its been 5 years since last weeks episode basically and everyone who was on th original team fully graduated to Leaguehood with the excption of KF, Artemis, and Aqualad whose whereabouts are unknown. This episode is basically the setup for the invasion and an introduction for all new characters

#36 Posted by Dernman (14755 posts) - - Show Bio
@Bestostero: I would really like to see what Connor's adult code name would be instead of Superboy.

@Dernman: he hasnt used any others canon wise as far as i know...but maybe Superclone? Superguy? Superbro? Superdude? lol

personally i like Superboy lol

I think they should have made this into a 1 hour premier rather than a 30 minute episode, just so that we have more time to figure out exactly what's happened over the 5 year time skip.

And on a side note, am I the only one that hated Blue Beetle in this episode? He really, really bothered me.

I enjoyed it, especially the scenes with Lobo. I even saw Milestones Rocket.

But who was the black guy in civilian clothes helping the team out?

They split into teams only for the mission

Delta Squad was Miss Martian, Superboy, Robin, Beast Boy, Blue Beetle, and Bumblebee when they were fighting Clayface...

Zeta Squad(the away team to planet Rann) was Superboy, Miss Martian, and Beast Boy.

Beta Squad Batgirl, Wonder Girl

Alpha Squad: Nightwing and Wonder Girl

Beta Squad (2) Batgirl, BumbleBee, Wolf

Gamma Squad Robin, Lagoon Boy, Blue Beetle

EDIT: i misspoke, i fixed the teams

Going to it to now. Agreed

#49 Posted by PoachedPig (75 posts) - - Show Bio

Today's episode is soo confusing. New characters are appearing out of no where. I feel like everything they build up in Season 1 just gone missing. I'm not really liking the whole time skip, really. And although it would be awesome to see Nightwing, I like the Dick Robin more. KF's line went to Beast Boy, seriously?!

On a positive note, the new Zatanna is so cool. Loving the new outfit!

I hope they give us something better in episode 2. I do agree with you guys, an hour long episode would be much much better.

#50 Posted by redbird3rdboywonder (3864 posts) - - Show Bio

I saw somebody mention that Black Lightning is in the league. If thats true whenever Static is introduced I woould like to see BL mentor Static on exploring new things with his powers. I also feel like this should happen in comics as well since from what I read about BL he has a much better control of his powers than Static so the teamup/mentoring would be amazing and much needed
