Oh yeah apparently the new (black) aqualad is afraid of water.
Do a search on Jackson Hyde you'll see, pretty sad though justified in story.

I like DCAU but I'm kind of hoping this thing doesn't see TV. Sorry, but it seems kind of stupid... Black Aqualad whose afraid of water? Besides isn't Teen Titans the younger version of JL?

I'm not racist but Aqualad isn't black. It just seems to be a cheap token minority thing. What about... Um, who actually is black in the D.C. Universe other than Cyborg and Bumblebee?
I meant that Teen Titans is like the Justice League for younger heroes, not a kid-version of Batman and them.
What do you mean? The NEW one is black and is going to be introduced to the main DCU, so don't know what you mean.
I thought Young Justice League meant it was just going to be like Justice League but younger characters and the only Aqua-Lad we've seen in DCAU is white or Asian. Anime style confuses me about that.
Well, there's Static and Black Lightning/Vulcan.
Static got his own show and wasn't Black Lightning created to be a token black on Super-Friends? Plus he had a badass version as a villain of the week on JLU right?
Black Lightning is his own character evidently. Black Vulcan was a cheap expy of him because they couldn't use the real Black Lightning.
This has something to do with that guy calling me racist. How come when a white guy gets turned into a black guy (Grover from Percy Jackson) it's alright, but if a asians become white (Avatar the Last Airbender) it's racist. I mean, Katara and Sokka should be eskimo or at least tanned, but with any regular asians in anime I can't tell the difference between white and asian most of the time.
So, it's alright to be racist towards white people? That's the message it sends to me.
Oh the hypocrisy... Seriously, if you don't like it being done to your group don't do it to white people. Not that we really care...

I didn't think Grover should have been black ( and I am Black)and no it is not okay to be racist to anyone that's what equality is about but enough with race relations lets get back to men in tights. but then again this is sorta my fault.

It's not okay officially, but see if it holds up in practice.
So what characters do we know about?
I mentioned Black Lightning in the Comics area. Apparently he was his own character, he's just got one of those "every use costs money" thing going on.
Your avatar gave me a scary thought... Two Face... Working at KFC (glad I don't eat there).
Don't judge a show before it comes out.
The new Aqualad sounds interesting to me. I speak as a comics fans, a Titans fan, a YJ fan, and a fan of the animated shows. It's nice to get call backs and references to past continuity, but there is nothing wrong with introducing new characters and making a concept your own— that's how we got Young Justice in the first place.
This isn't the same Aqualad, it's a new one. I thought you knew that, and I said that your comment came off as racist (not so much calling you, personally, a racist) because it looked as though you were decrying the addition of a new black character. Misunderstanding, is what that's called. Oh, and I don't like race lifts, no matter what the circumstances are. I'm still bitter about Mos Def being cast as Ford Prefect in the Hitchhiker movie, as opposed to, say, Ewan McGregor.

Sorry, I figured it was like a show were all the charactersm like Bats and Superman were teenagers. Still, why is Aqualad afraid of water? What villains are in it?
