    It, at the very least, has a way different visual style judging from those shillouetes

    I can see: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl, Zatanna, Firestorm, Either Martian Manhunter or Shazam, Maybe The Flash and a Lady With A Cape

    Lady With A Cape is either Dr. Light or Huntress, you can see the headgear spikes at the very top of her silhouette

    That could be a Batgirl too, I bet.

    That's true--I went to Huntress immediately, but it could be any of the Batgirls with exposed hair, or Batwoman.

    As well as any other female character with Bat-style headspikes, but I don't think there are a ton of them outside of Dr. Light.

    That big arm next to Lady With A Cape is probably Cyborg

    Also it looks to me like Martian Manhunter and Shazam are both represented

    Shazam is definitely in the bottom corner--big guy with a lightning bolt on his chest, and MM looks to be on the top row

    Here's my left to right top to bottom guesses
    [Superman] [Wonder Woman] [Batman] [Martian Manhunter] [Unknown]
    [Unknown] [Zatanna] [Firestorm] [Flash] [Huntress] [Cyborg]
    [Hawkgirl] [Shazam]
    

    I'm the least certain on Huntress, and I have no idea on those other two partial silhouettes

    Young Justice is alright. It does get better, I will say that to its credit. But I was never in love with it.

    Granted I've watched the first seven episodes are okay. The voice acting and animation are good, but some of the dialogue just really goes against the grain for me.

    It is VERY geared towards the age group of the protagonists.

    If I were 14/15 years old and into cartoons I'd probably love it.

    But, the NAMES. Kid Flash is the worst name ever.

    And that's fine. I'm not even opposed to "teenage group of superheroes" as a concept, but I do wish they weren't basically copies of their parent characters, so really Kid Flash is the only one I don't like, because he's basically JL flash, just younger and thus even more obnoxious. I've always like Robin as a personality foil to Batman (though I'm surprised they went with Dick Grayson Robin and not Tim Drake) so that works well, and Aqualad/Superboy/Miss Martian (though that NAME again) all act different enough from their namesakes to be interesting.

    I mean Kid Flash is literally a younger version of JL Flash because they are both Wally West

    That doesn't sound right. I'm 99% sure Flash is Barry in YJ.

    It's very different than JL/JLU. It's much more serialized and there's less variety in the types of episode. Yes, JL/JLU has continuity but most episodes can be watched individually and enjoyed without seeing any other episodes. You really can't jump into the middle of YJ, you have to watch it from the beginning. JL/JLU also varies greatly in the types and tone of the stories they tell. There are serious dramatic episodes, comedic ones, fun adventure ones, sad depressing ones, etc. YJ episodes are mostly serious teen dramas. YJ also focuses a lot on building up a big conflict and almost every episode ends with some dangling plot (and the eventual payoff might be a little disappointing), while most JL/JLU stories are resolved more satisfactorily at the end of each episode/two-parter.

    Yeah but JL Flash has way more memorable lines and scenes, except maybe for that last Kid Flash scene.

    It's not really intended as a jumping on point IIRC (I haven't reread it recently, but it was originally just the same series as Moore's Miracleman.). There is a definite break in the story between Moore's issues (showing the world that we know and how it changed) and Gaiman's issues (showing the world after it has been changed by Miracleman and his fellow superhumans). So it's a new story, but you might be a bit lost if you never read the Moore issues.

    Re: Misty Knight, I remember some issue of Uncanny X-Men back in the late 80s/early 90s where Forge said that he (co-?)designed Misty's arm. Retcon by Claremont?

    Alright! Thanks! So if I'm not mistaken this new #1 of MM is gonna be another reissue (actually #17 of the original run from the 90s) where Gaiman began writing. If that is the case I think I'll pick that up. I know enough backstory from the wiki too so I'll be good :)

    Hey @Chincymcchilla , I was catching up in the previous thread and saw a post that I just got reminded of. It was about someone(me) saying that The Punisher shouldn't exist. I just wanted to clear something up if it matters.

    While I don't think I actually said that he shouldn't exist, I absolutely do believe that artists have a social responsibility for what they create, just like any other person. I am not gonna view a work that shows racism is bad negatively if someone takes the opposite message. I might however view a work negatively that says violence is good, and someone takes that message. I do not believe this view is inconsistent.

    I thought young justice picked up a lot of steam in its second season (maybe toward the end of the first), once they either had exhausted a lot of their teen superhero ideas or realized they should focus more on a big ongoing story

    then of course it ends on a ridiculous cliffhanger, so there's that

    didn't see this mentioned here yesterday

    the Marvel "Creative Committee" has been disbanded, at least for Marvel Studios

    assuming some of the things in the article are true, like how their notes led to Wright walking off of Ant-Man, that's a pretty huge deal

    Yesterday my friend El Mayimbe of Heroic Hollywood reported on Periscope that there has been a shake-up of the Creative Committee at Marvel,

    they arent.

    the stuff i was talking about came from faraci, not mayimbe, who has a much better track record with this stuff (though still not spotless)

    it's also being reported by sites like the hollywood reporter so it's not just rumormongering

    I imagine Feige is gunning for that though. Creative differences talk and Wright leaving Ant-man really hurt Ant-man's early buzz)\ and Whedon is still publicly bashing Marvel Execs because of crap in avengers 2. Solving that issue is probably a big priority.

    The question is, how much was Feige a part of that issue? He's now the undisputed master of Marvel Studios, more or less, but he's had a lot of power for a while now. It's not 100% clear if his decisions have fed into these problems or if he's been trying to alleviate them. If it's the first of those two, then Feige getting more power isn't necessarily a good thing.

    It's true that everyone needs an editor, but Disney's brand quality control is a beast in and of itself. If it turned out that Feige was drunk with power and started screwing up their lucrative superhero franchises, he'd be out on his ass. Restructuring happens all the time, it's just that we're hearing about it because of the size of the property.

    I figured that since they restructured every other studio they got ahold of, they were just waiting for a gap in the release schedule to make it happen.
