Justice is Like an Ephebophile: Sometimes It Must Go Young

So the...movie/pilot thing aired earlier today on Cartoon Network, and it was fuckin' awesome.

Who are all these people you might ask?

ASK NO MORE

The Young Justice Members

Robin:
Young-Justice-Robin.jpg

AKA Dick (hahahaha) Grayson. Actually not the leader of Young Justice! Weird, right? I guess he's Batman's sidekick or something? He has an Omni-tool to hack into shit, plus is like a mini-Batman, so you can't go wrong there!

Aqualad
YJAqualad.jpg

AKA Aqualad, this guy IS the leader of Young Justice! He is Aquaman's loyal subject/sidekick/bro. This is a new incarnation of the character, and is kind of like a cross between the Green Lantern and Aquaman. He uses magic tattoos and Atlantean shit to turn water into shit like a Mace, a Hammer, and I guess he can use it to electrify people too?

Kid Flash
young-justice-kid-flash.jpg

AKA Wally West, he is the resident speedy guy (not to be confused with Speedy), and he runs around and that's about it, right? Speed Force or something? I guess?

Superboy
young-justice-superboy1.jpg

AKA Superman Clone, is a sixteen week old clone of Superman created by Cadmus. He can't fly, or shoot laserbeams out of his eyes, so what the hell use is he?

Miss Martian
young-justice-miss-martian.jpg

One of two resident vaginas. And yes, you're reading that right, it's MISS Martian, so you know she's DTF

Those were all of the heroes introduced for the team so far, (Artemis is the other resident vagina, but she wasn't in the pilot so fuck her) with apparently two more slots going to be filled through the season (which starts January 2011)

Other Notable Cast Members:

Batman
Red Tornado
Black Canary
Aquaman
Captain Marvel
Hal Jordan
I think I saw Sinestro!
Martian Manhunter

Okay, thats pretty cool, but didn't they already do a Teen Titans show?

Yeah, but this is New Justice, jackass.

Alright, but what actually happens in the show?

Basically the Young Justice bros want to start being recognized as more than just sidekicks, and want to start initiation rights into the Justice League. Some shenanigans ensue, and eventually Batman authorizes the creation of Young Justice, a covert ops team which he will basically be the general of. Red Tornado is going to help out with babysitting, and Black Canary is in charge of training them to be badass. The main bad guys seem to be Cadmus, which is controlled by this weird Council thing called the Light. But it looks really interesting!


I thought this was the tits, and I even did a live twitter feed of me watching it, which no one should read.

    I thought this was really good, so there's that.

    I'm assuming something is eventually going to come from Speedy walking out at the beginning.

    And isn't Arkam Asylum 2 Mark Hamil's last gig as the Joker?

    The pilot was pretty good, guys. Angry Superboy without the confidence to get his powers to work.

    I bet Superman is freaking out. When he talked to him you could just tell he was struggling with it.

    Didn't the guy behind Spectacular Spider-Man and Gargoyles do this? That's some fucking pedigree right there.
    why was aqualad barefoot the whole time?

    Probably never had a use for them considering he lives underneath the sea.

    robin is the youngest of the group by a good 3 years actually

    also, it should be noted that this is Earth-16, not usual DCAU Earth.

    I need to see Aqualad's resume before clearing him for leadership.

    In any universe Robin should have seen a lot of stuff.

    robin is 13 and, from the looks of this show, not really fit for a leader-type role
    aqualad is 16 and is a lot more...calm?

    watch the show, it's really good.

    i do like robin's tim drake costume though

    Robin's young as hell and Aqualad was taught and trained by a King. Also if you watch the show you'll see that he is able to communicate with people better and motivate them.

    edit:

    Also Robin and Kid Flash weren't exactly worried about being team players to start out with. More like they were competing for who's cool guy #1. While Aqualad was more serious about the situation.

    Sure most people love, Batman.

    Robin in this show isn't Batman, though.

    Now if Batman wanted Robin to be team leader who the hell would question that? No one, because he's the goddamn Batman.

    But Robin's not the team leader.

    We've already heard that.

    No one's going to question Aqualad's ability to lead until he goes off mission, gets a teammate hurt, and is challenged by a female team member he has the hots for. But can't do anything about it, because he's all competitive and shit and Superboy might Hulk out on him because he wants to bone her to. Problem is he's a 16 week old clone. He don't know a thing about a thing.

    He may go Incredible Bulk though.

    I'm a little surprised they went with aqualad for the team leader.

    Simply because well. Sidekick to Aquaman isn't the most stellar resume bulletpoint to kids these days.

    I dunno, I think Aquaman could teach one a lot about leadership.
