Young Justice

Go To

I think this show will become just as good as Teen Titans...

Also, which Robin do you suppose it is? It's probably either going to be another composite, Dick Grayson, or Jason Todd... I'm going for Grayson.

It's probably Tim Drake. He was one of the original three on Young Justice, plus he is friends with Superboy and Kid Flash. So going off the decision to have those three in the lineup (Superboy wasn't around with Wally and Dick), I'm thinking (hoping) that it's Tim/Robin and Bart/Kid Flash, which would make the most sense.

Okay.

Hopefully, the network is more friendly with Greg Weisman, then again, they let him write the Wacky Racing episode of Brave And The Bold.

The design definitely looks like Arrowette. Maybe they changed the name to make her sound cooler— Artemis, goddess of the hunt whose symbol is the bow, does sound a bit stronger than just "Arrowette."

If that's Bart, he looks rather serious. Maybe it's just a promo thing, but Bart should be fun. I hope he's fun.

Is Kon wearing eyeliner?

If I had to make a guess at the Robin, it'd be Tim. The shoes are more Tim's ninja-thing. Then again, it could be an amalgam character like the TT one was— but I think the only reason that worked is because TT never really spent any time outside of their costumes. If there are going to be any secret identities at all in this show, they need to pin down which Robin it is.

Still, veeeery excited. :D

Thanks for the all fish!

Artemis. Not another name for Arrowette.

^Yeah, sorta forgot about her. I know all the Wonder Woman characters are off-limits now for some legal reason, so maybe she's sort of a composite of Artemis/Arrowette to get both hero legacies in.

Maybe Artemis isn't in the poster, and is actually Wonder Girl?

I know about that Artemis, but she's not a YJ character. She's not even a teenage character; she was a Wonder Woman replacement during one of WW's Ten Minute Retirements, and as I recall she hasn't been used since Amazons Attack— she's a pretty obscure character. I don't see why they would put her in a cartoon with teens at all.

Design-wise, this character is Arrowette, she just has a green colour-scheme. She has an archery theme, like Arrowette. She's on YJ, like Arrowette. The logical conclusion is the character is Arrowette and they changed the name, rather than the character is Artemis and they changed everything about the character.

^ Oh? I'm only familiar with her because she had a fairly big role in the Trinity book, but the Comicsvine link I posted notes that she was once part of Young Justice. I dunno.

She's in Trinity? I stopped reading comics after Countdown, so I'm not really familiar with that. But I do own every issue of YJ, and I don't recall her ever being a part of the team. Even in the massive group fight with Darkseid at the end, I don't think she was there. Hold up, Imma go check. Maybe it's my memory that's faulty.

Thanks for the all fish!

Not that Trinity. I few years ago I picked up a book that was pretty much a retelling of the adventure where Batman was introduced to Wonder Woman that was also called Trinity. Probably not entirely canon, but, in any case, Artemis has a fairly big role in it.

Out of curiosity to some of the more comic-savvy tropers out there- who are some of the major members of the comic Young Justice's Rogues Gallery that might make it into the show? Are any of them important enough to be obvious Big Bad candidates? Obviously this hasn't been announced yet, but I was wondering if anyone here might be able to at least speculate.

As a big fan of both the DCAU and Teen Titans (and, for that matter, Greg Weisman), I'm very much looking forward to this one, by the way.

Mighty Endowed will never make it in. Ever.

Maybe they'll put in Secret to join the team, and with Secret comes her murderous brother Harm, and maybe conflicts with the D.E.O.

Klarion (Bum-bum...BUM!) the Witch-Boy is a possibility.

Honestly, they didn't really have a rogue's gallery. Young Justice was mostly half internal, personal conflicts and the other half lighthearted 'go-to-Planet-Cockney-play-baseball' fun, in the same issue.

Maybe they'll make their own?

Apr 22nd 2010 at 7:06:25 PM

^ With Weisman's love for exploring continuity? Doubtful. They'll probably end up borrowing villains from the Teen Titans' Rogues Gallery, given that their own show didn't find much use for most of 'em.

Hmm. They were in conflict with Old Justice for a while, which was a band of former-sidekicks to Golden Age heroes who wanted to protect the young'uns and shut down Young Justice... Secret and Harm, as mentioned, and if we get them the DEO will have to show up... Darkseid was there at the end, but again that was a Secret plot... Oh, Bedlam was a pretty big villain, he was a Reality Warper who wished for a World Without Young Justice. Match, Superboy's clone, shows up a few times, and Inertia, Impulse's clone, shows up briefly as well (or maybe that was just in the Impulse comics).  *

Like krrackknut said, mostly it was team conflicts or weird events. Arrowette shoots a guy in anger and gives up superheroing; Impulse quits the team because he's afraid of dying; the team gets upset that Robin won't reveal his identity; stuff like that. Mixed in were trips to space, fighting the Crisis Crossover of the week, creating Crisis Crossovers (like World Without Grownups or Sins of Youth).

They'll probably use some villains from their collective rogue's galleries, maybe invent some, and include story arcs that resemble the comics ones. That's what I'm anticipating.

^ Or that. Titans has a huge rogue's gallery, and you're right, the show barely scraped the surface.

Maybe we'll get lucky and Cartoon Network will treat Weisman better than Disney ever did. That dude should just stay away from disney all together.

On the Justice League DVD commentaries, the creators said they had a lot of leeway working with CN. They'd previously worked with Kids WB, which was very strict with their scripts and ideas. CN was way looser and let them do pretty well what they wanted. So I have hope that CN will let him breathe. I just hope he takes care of my precious YJ.

I hope the animated Teen Titans have a cameo or two. Just sayin'.

I mean there's a new Aqualad (he looks OK in my opinion), but their Kid Flash seems to be the same guy from before...
