Now, the new JSA has different challenges to face, dissension in the ranks, and a new theme for the season. The new season kicks off with “Frenemies: Chapter One: The Murder.”
After a longer break than I intended to take, I got some time to return to highly enjoyable and really well done Young Justice cartoon. This season’s subtitle has been “Outsiders” and, while it’s not exactly a recreation of the team Batman founded in the comics in the 80’s, it’s been cleverly done and shows the increasingly complex world these stories are happening in.
They’ve been doing a good job showing Cindy Burman, AKA Shiv, putting together a team to challenge Stargirl’s fledgling Justice Society of America. Now, at least most of the pieces are in place and Cindy is making her move.
The holidays are coming as the Young Justice crew deals with assorted problems in various locations. We see domestic developments in Star City, problems with the new meta-kids in Taos, and an unexpected attack with some great misdirection.
The Young Justice cartoon has been impressing me since it first started. They have a huge cast of characters, some major storylines, and new spins on a lot of ideas.
The third season of Young Justice hits the halfway point as the metahuman trafficking case heats up and the Happy Harbor crew gets a few surprises.
One of DC Comics’ oldest villains is Vandal Savage, and I use oldest in several senses of the word. The character first appeared in 1943, during the Golden Age of Comics, when superheroes and villains were just getting started.
We see a bit more of the world and some relationships, and before it’s done, there’s more than one “Rescue Op.”
So far, most of this season has focused on events in Markovia, with a variation of the comic book version of the Outsiders origin. In “Eminent Threat,” we see the various stories move forward.
One of the things I love about the Young Justice cartoon is that the writers seem to be fans of the characters themselves. They work in all kinds of little Easter Eggs, nods, and little moments of trivia, as well as taking advantage of being on their own Earth to invent new bits of history that fit
