** A proper example would be the Terror Twins, a pair of teen villains created for the show, and Green Beetle, a Martian with the same sort of Scarab used by Comicbook/BlueBeetle.

** A proper example would be the Terror Twins, Tommy and Tuppence, a pair of teen villains created for the show, show to help facilitate the episode where Conner and Green Beetle, a Martian with M'gann go undercover in prison. And, more generally, just to fill the same sort gap of Scarab used by Comicbook/BlueBeetle.having teenage villains in a show about teenage superheroes.


Added DiffLines:

** An interesting example is Green Beetle, B'arzz O'oom, who was created entirely out of a realization of FridgeLogic. In most [=DC=] products created after the 1960s or so, ComicBook/MartianManhunter is the last (green) Martian, because Mars is an uninhabited planet in RealLife. However, before Mars was definitively known to be uninhabited, he was just another Martian who happened to be stranded on Earth. In order to keep Manhunter from being ''too'' similar to Superman (who is more famous and more ''famously'' TheLastOfHisKind), [=YJ=] established that Mars was fully inhabited and Martian society is thriving. No big deal, right? Except that season two ''also'' established that the Reach, the hostile aliens trying to take over the planet, sent a Scarab like ComicBook/BlueBeetle's to every ''inhabited'' planet. So if this is true, then that means there must be a Scarab-user on Mars, and since both Martians and Scarab-users are individually winners of the SuperpowerLottery, then won't that make for some interesting mayhem...? He's unique to Young Justice, because Young Justice is the only 'verse where both the Martians and the Reach are in a position to make his existence possible.
