How Artemis got started

Photobucket


Due to the monthly nature of comics, and possibly also due to the fact that the schedule for new episodes is a thing in flux, the Young Justice tie-in comic is really taking its time in catching up with the show. In the latest issue, #7, we finally reach the point where Artemis joins the cast, as we see the events that led up to her secretly helping the team against Amazo.

...which leads to her finding Robin, Kid Flash, and Superboy up against Amazo.

So one of the two female characters' origin story isn't worth telling within the context of the actual show so it's just tossed away into a comic book for extra credit. It's like the makers of the show are trying to find reasons to exclude as many opportunities to let the female characters have a spotlight and put it into other mediums that everybody knows doesn't matter since it's the only thing that should matter is the series itself.

I can't wait for the series final where both Artemis and Miss Martian are seen only as mere filler support characters. After all, the series started out with two whole episodes with just the guys, so why wouldn't the series eventually be all about them in the end? This is almost as bad as waiting for the moment when Ahsoka dies in that overly drawn out Clone Wars series.

I personally hope she's among few who actually survives. Quinlan Vos is by far the only character I know of who escapes the Clone Wars with a happy ending at that.

Yoda didn't do too bad.

To be honest, Yoda's actions struck me as pretty much piss poor after the Clone War. He runs and HIDES! He does, as far as we know, NOTHING, for the twenty years it takes for Luke to grow up and come to him. Does he try to do anything to prevent the rise of the Sith? No. Does he organise any sort of underground, or even assist the Rebellion (Who could sorely use his skills and help no doubt) No. He sits in a swamp talking to himself.

Ben at least has the retconned in "Keeping an eye on Luke and keeping him safe" mission to carry out.

I especially LOVE that scene when Obi-Wan is on Taintive IV and they're talking about the message saying for all Jedi to return.

Obi-Wan: Well than we must go back. If there are any stragglers they will fall into the trap and be killed.
Yoda: Suggest dismantling the coded signal, do you?

Wait, wait. Jedi are being murdered, they've known about this signal for a while, and Yoda never once thought about coming up with a plan on shutting it down in order to save what other surviving Jedi there may be?

Obi-Wan: Yes master. There is too much at stake.
Yoda: I agree. And a little more knowledge might light our way.

Saving the Jedi? Meh. Possibility on figuring out who did this? LET'S GO!

Or Miss Martian either really.

Aqualad's so far the only one to actually have his origin shown in the series. He and Garth helping Aquaman battle Ocean Master.

Miss Martian got covered in a comic issue, as did Robin, which added an interesting twist to the Grayson deaths, insasmuch as Dick had an older brother who was also killed (Shades of Batman Forever.

That's alright. I'm very certain they'll get to it in the actual show rather than a toss away comic.

You're assuming based upon no evidence. What we DO have as evidence is that each of the boys' origins were covered in comic book form, as part of a two-part campfire tales story, whereas Artie gets an entire issue (and possibly more) to her origin. If anything, since we've yet to see origins other than Aqualad's in the Toon, the overall coverage has been detrimental toward the guys.

"the overall coverage has been detrimental toward the guys."

Detrimental towards the guys? Did this show not start out with two whole episodes focused solely on the guys as the main characters of the series? For being a pilot that's meant to sell audiences on what the series was going to be like, it sure didn't give the girls ANYTHING to do to showcase what their contributions would be like. But that's alright, we'll introduce them later and throw anything interesting in non-canon comics.
