** I'd assume that eventually one of the supervillains cracked. That for all the Light's attempted good will with others, eventually someone on the totem poll leaked to Batman or to someone else and said he was working for "The Light".

** Five years passed between seasons. That's more than enough time for the League to do some digging.

** Yeah- when a GalacticConqueror shows up, it's a good bet he's here to ''conquer'', even if he also intends to wipe out the ScaryDogmaticAliens that you're already having to deal with while he's at it. It was an EvilVersusEvil situation where either side winning would be bad for Earth (and Mongul was the greater threat at the moment), and the League and team were GenreSavvy enough to know it.

** Plus it's not like Fate has much of a choice in his situation. He can't put himself on someone, after all. When he unpossesses someone, he's essentially placing himself at their mercy until they or someone else puts the helmet on. As soon as a potential host comes along, his options are either A) Let them go, at which point there's no guarantee he'll ever be put on again, or B) Imprison the host for as long as possible.

*A very small headscratcher, but this line from [[Recap/YoungJusticeS1E22Agendas Agendas]]: "Wisdom does not equal maturity." But... Isn't maturity pretty much the definition of wisdom? The word is literally defined as "the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight." All of that fits maturity to me. If he were referring to intelligence then I could readily accept that since an intelligent person isn't necessarily mature and intelligence doesn't equate to wisdom or vice versa. But wisdom, in most ways, DOES equal maturity. Granted, Captain Marvel does act pretty immature. But that shouldn't be the case since he has the "Wisdom of Solomon"...

* 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.
