Young Justice: Early Warning

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.

Young Justice: Influence

After the mid-season break, Young Justice goes on with their story. They have a lot of moving parts, and the settings range from a few familiar places on Earth to distant planets and space stations. The conspiracy against Earth’s metahumans, aided by villains and alien gods, gets deeper and more complicated, and they even work in a really obscure DC Character, as we see the spread of the bad guys’ “Influence.”

Young Justice: Nightmare Monkeys

we get a lot of attention on Gar Logan, Beast Boy (although I’ll always prefer his Changeling codename) in this episode. We see a recounting of his tragic past, which is even more tragic on Young Justice (impressive, considering he’s still somewhere in his teens).

Young Justice: Another Freak

After a lot of setup, we get a tragic origin of an important character in the DC Universe, especially in the ranks of the younger ones. There’s also a first day of school, the introduction of a minor Bat-character, a much-needed attitude adjustment, and a few deep cuts for trivial side characters.

Young Justice: Home Fires

One of the things I really like about Young Justice is that their world is off on its own, so it has its own history and they can make changes and adapt things to fit their own mythos.

Young Justice: Triptych

…revealed is the plan behind some of the recent changes in the Justice League’s membership, a new and intriguing Gotham-based team, and at least a nod in the direction of the one original Outsider we haven’t seen yet.
