With the new season kinda thing of Young Justice starting, where's a clip from the new episode, in which all of the adults have disappeared and it's up to the team to defeat Klarion and save the day!

Views on this show? I thought that it had kind of a shakey start, but it seems to be getting consistantly better with each episode, to me at least. I like that that they've decided to incorperate all of DC's continuity into one universe with a history of superheroes that stretches back to the 1940s, instead of shoving it into a smaller timeslot and cutting off the parts that don't fit.

Wonder Woman apparently is an immortal that fought in World War Two, for example, which would be impressive if they actually gave her some actual damn lines in the show. Seriously, I love the cameos they're including, but when Madame Xanadu and Bette Kane are getting more lines than Diana in your all DC-inclusive show it's a little odd.

The character development from episode to episode seems to be getting consistantly better, with the possible seeds of the Nightwing persona being planted a little while ago and Megan starting to loose the intial media-suggested approach to being a girl she had prior starting to fade into being more her own person, which is nice (the Hello, Megan! phrase and baking apparently came from her watching sitcoms and thinking that people actually acted like that, kind of making it more a comment on sexism in the media than the character herself being a stereotype, if that makes sense).

Not to fond of their version of the Joker, although Brent Spiner is pretty Boss in most things that he's in.

Anyways, here's a panel of New Frontier Wonder Woman for legality, as she's always awesome.


Ended up writing a mini-essay on my interpretation of the New Frontier version of the character after a conversation that I had here a while ago, if people are interested,

It wouldn't have been how I did it, but I can sort of see what they're doing; a sort of Sterling Holloway meets Truman Capote, perhaps hinting that Klarion is older than he appears.

It's Thom Adcox Hernandez, and I can still hear a shade of Lexington in his Klarion voice, which makes it really creepy for me.

I thought he sounded familiar; thanks for that. I would have been agonizing over that one. =)

It was also the case in the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman TV series.

Yeah, I'm kinda sad that they aren't doing a lot with Diana--I thought that when Red Tornado was taken out of the picture for a while they might have had a rotating "den mother" and Diana would have been fun to add in for at least an episode. Hopefully if/when they add a Wonder Girl she'll play a bigger role.

I think I heard Johns say at some point that whatever legal issue they had with using Wonder Woman in the past has been settled by them and the Marston family at some point, but I may be wrong.

They were able to use her in Brave and the Bold, well eventually.

Actually, I'd think Wonder Woman rights was being held up by whatever that darned David Kelley show was.

Three words…

I wonder if anyone wishes this ep was a straight take on Sins of Youth?

I still wish Young Justice was a straight take on Young Justice

This IS Young Justice! There's even a comic! (I don't recall there ever having been another.)

There is an older comic with the same name "Young Justice" and a similar lineup, consisting of Robin (Tim Drake), Impulse (Bart Allen), Superboy (Kon-El), Arrowette (Cissie King-Jones), and Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandsmark).

It's confusing stuff really. But isn't that what makes comics fun? :D

Supposedly written by a guy with two first names. Heard of it, but there's no real evidence it ever existed. I think Tim, Bart, and Cassie just met, and this Kon-El guy fought them all!

I'm glad it isn't--the comic, from what I've read, had it's moments, but it suffered from being really meandering and thinking it was way more funny than it actually was. I honestly think the current Teen Titans series is a better Young Justice than the original.

Agreed on the original YJ, some enormously fun moments (My favourite being Arrowette's dressing down of the JLA) but also some VERY laboured punchlines, and suffering from crossover-event-itis.

I'm always in the same place with Young Justice - it's a fun show, but I have to block off part of my brain to watch it or I get really perturbed still about Dick and Wally being on a team with Kon.

On the other hand, it did motivate me to start rebuilding my collection of 90's YJ comics.

Same with me. I do enjoy the show, but mixing the generations likes that gives me a headache sometimes. Zatanna being around Dick's age in this is really weirding me out.

I like the idea of seeing Zee actually growing into her legacy, though. The fully-formed version in the Silver Age was cool, but we never got much of her history until after Zatara passed. (Still better than ineffectual biker-chick Zee, though, IMO) If she and Dick start dating, though, I might join you in being weirded out. It would be like Dolphin/Garth in a way.

This Young Justice universe would have made a better reboot than the New 52!

Nuff Said!!

Am I the only one giggling at Klarion's pose in that screencap for the video? It just screams, 'fabulous'

LMFAO! I didn't notice that before but now that you mention it, it totally does.

I can't wait for the new episodes, I'm so excited!! On a side note, Klarion's voice sounds weird in this clip but it may be because I haven't heard it in a while. I think If I had to choose a voice for Klarion, I'd prefer the BTAS one more. This guy's voice sounds screechy and annoying.
