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.

That has been the theory I've been going with since day one.

Is it just me or are there some unfortunate implications in this?

Two half Vietnamese sisters, one good, one evil. The heroic sister has blonde hair, blue eyes and half the time she is colored with the same skin tone as Robin, Kid Flash and Superboy, she hangs out with whiter-than-bread Green Arrow and pretends to be his daughter/niece and she gets to be on the junior Justice League. Meanwhile her villainous sister looks Asian, is an evil ninja babe and a member of the League of Assassins.

They've got this whole "evil is in your blood" theme going on in the show what with Superboy and Aqualad also having villainous fathers and Miss Martian's White Martian stuff, and they and Artemis will all get past that, it is still a kids show after all. But I doubt that Cheshire ever will. She probably likes being an assassin.

Is this as problematic as I think it is or am I just crazy?

"They've got this whole "evil is in your blood" theme going on in the show what with Superboy and Aqualad also having villainous fathers and Miss Martian's White Martian stuff,"

I'm not getting that vibe at all.

Superboy has problems adjusting, but so far no one knows about the Luthor end, if that's even true on this Earth.

Same thing with Aqualad--if we didn't know it's so from the comics, we wouldn't have even assumed Black Manta was Aqualad's dad.

As for Miss Martian--from what was hinted at in Targets, it seems like less of the "one evil, one good" race thing, but more of a twisted class struggle.
