* Why did VandalSavage send Batman down to mount justice to explain his plan to the team in detail? I mean sure he threw in that "We foiled his plan already" bit but couldn't he have not given the team all the backstory they would need to wreck his shit? I mean why not just [[Franchise/StarTrek beam gas canisters into the cave]] to knock them unconscious? Other than [[JustEatGilligan it would end the show with the bad guy winning.]]

*** And as of "War" it's quite clear that the Light and the Reach are at cross-purposes, seeing as the Light's unnofficial leader VandalSavage prodded Mongul into attacking Earth to take a major bite out of the Reach's on-planet forces.

** This was a minor plot point in ''{{Animorphs}},'' that human brains are just wired in such a way that we're more ingenuitive. One of the aliens in that series noted that it took humans less than 80 years to go from atmospheric flight to spaceflight, but it took his species considerably longer. It could just be that humans are more imaginative that way. Or it's part of the metagene.

** The above troper actually makes sense. In 'Bereft', ''Superboy'' punches Wally into a rocky cliff, and KF more or less shrugs it off. In the pilot, the entire above-ground Cadmus facility crumbles on top of our heroes and not a single bone seems to be broken. And it's not just Young Justice either; just watch the fight between Batman and Jason Todd in [[BatmanUnderTheRedHood Under the Red Hood]] and count how many times Jason's face should have crumbled. People in any DCU are probably just used to everyone being able to take a certain amount of damage and be fine.

** She joined the team when Icon joined the Justice League. It makes perfect sense that his young partner would join the Team when he joins the League.

** A few things actually, first you're probably underestimating kids a fair bit. Young Justice is no where near as complicated as AvatarTheLastAirBender is, jumping in the middle of that is at best a crap shoot and at worst a complete turn off, plenty of time will go by without beating up bad guys or sometimes even seeing bad guys and many of the missions are long term. So the first answer is you may be down playing how much kids can understand but that is also in part determined on what you consider a younger audience if you mean three to nine it may be a bit out of their zone. I always viewed Young Justice as being aimed at the tween audience. Say ten to fifteen as cartoons are gradually clawing their way out of the mentality that they are exclusively for young children.

** Everything about her is pretty Japanese. She might just like Japan? You're right, it is a bit odd considering how cognizant this show seems to be about race and ethnicity.

* When did the Justice League learn that the villainous secret society calls itself the Light? By the end of the first season, they still don't know the group's name, but in the second season (and in the ''Legacy'' video game), they seem to know all about it.

*Why does Cheshire wear a kimono when she's Vietnamese? Just to throw people off her track or something?

*** Word of GregWeisman is that M'gann ''is '' J'onn's biological niece- she was born to a Green Martian mother (J'onn's sister) and a White Martian father. And most of her siblings are Green Martians- except M'gann herself and 1 brother.

** While it's true that we don't yet know ''for sure'' what the name of the sitcom she got her catchphrase from is, closed captioning means diddly-squat as evidence either way; it's just one person's interpretation of what was said for the benefit of the hearing-impaired, not based on the original script or anything. We'll know for sure once "Downtime" comes to DVD (as the subtitles on those ''are'' official) but for now, the fact that GregWeisman called the "Hello, Megan!" shirt he was wearing to SDCC "in fact a spoiler" makes me think that it's a sample of in-show merchandise which lends credence to the notion that that is indeed the name of the sitcom in question.

*** Bigger problem: Why did the league and team have no video proof whatsoever? It would've been understandable if they tried to get it but technology on their ship interfered with their recording equipment, but if they had sent in a camera with both the rescue team and the trojan prisoners like Batgirl and Robin, they would surely have been able to prove that the Reach was bad news. Now I get that they didn't exactly know they'd ''need'' proof when they went in, they didn't realize the aliens would gain the planet's trust, but they had no idea what kinds of aliens they were going to deal with, and having at least a picture or two of them in case they remained hidden would surely have been useful for future missions?
