Mini-review, so spoilers.

There were two main plotlines in today's episode, with a story involving mainly Roy Harper trying to work out who is trying to kill the negotiator for a peace agreement between the DCU versions of North and South Korea.

And the other involved Superboy and Megan beginning their integration into human society by signing up to the local high school, where they meet a number of characters you can kind of recognise from both the Teen Titans tv show and the comics.

You might recognise these two, for example,

Overall, I thought that it was a fairly good episode, with the school stuff balancing out the political intrigue of Lex and the League of Shadows pretty well. The references to the Teen Titans in Conner and Megan’s school were pretty cute, and I liked the shows depictions of Ra’s and Lex. The Cass Cain/Artemis parallels continue to grow, with a definate David Cain/Lady Shiva vibe being produced whenever the two are together, amongst other things. We’ll see where that plotpoint is going, I guess.

For legality, here is a picture commissioned by Wizard Magazine of Cass and Babs getting into a fight.

Boobs in the face? Yep, that's Wizard.

Also, new Young Justice! A DC universe reinvention that I actually rather like!

I'd honestly be a bit astonished if Cass didn't show up. This is exactly the kind of show she'd do very well in. I say we won't be seeing her this season, but in the next one, I think we will.

Don't think she will, at least as Batgirl, seeing as this is a take on an early DC Universe... even if they have messed around with the ages a bit.

True. But I suspect we'd see Babs first at some point even if it was just a cameo, they wanted Dick because he was the first incarnation of Robin.

Sorry, that came out snarkier than I intended. and I hadn't noticed the warning bit before the actual "spoiler: this is the spoiler" section.

I think Bumble bee cameo'd too, the scene with the cheerleaders.

Yup, Karen Beecher and Mal Duncan are Bumblebee and Mal/Guardian/Hornblower/Vox respectively.

In the picture above? No. But we do find both Superboy and M'Gann's secret ID's in this episode.

Also, it's becoming more and more obvious that M'Gann watched huge amounts of fifties sitcoms. "You're...carrying my books?"
*Blank Superboy stare.*
"...Yes. Did you want them to get all wet?"

heh, too clever writing for their own good. Excellent post.

Yeah, I like that idea too. All other races that tend to appear in comics and/or tv with Earth directly involved are either too primitive for space travel or long dead. And you've managed to make M'gann interesting to me now that you've put it like that- I've never really read any title with her in. I've been a little bit sceptical of her and Artemis as the only female characters on the team so far, probably because I liked Raven and Starfire on the Teen Titans show.

The way they're building up the plot is very good too and everything is done very realistically- ultimate-verse(ish), except kid friendly. I was a little surprised to see a North/South Korea allegory in it -.-' but I think it could be in a lead up to a Luthor presidency.

Yep, hopefully it'll fade away like most early character gags do and only be used for irony.

Huh.. I'm surprised you didn't post the possible Teen Superhero homage: Bumblebee, Cass, M'ggan, Proxy, Empress, Mary Marvel, and Cassie (though maybe Steph or Stargirl? Given Cassie is supposed to actually appear on the show next season).

Plus Herald and Snapper Carr too.

Agreed, I loved that Luthor never raised his voice, but was calm and analytical throughout. His reasoning was also very logical indeed.

Have they confirmed that it's Cassie appearing next season? I was personally hoping for Donna.

From: [personal profile] long_silence
Well Cassie was the one who was actually in the comic version of Young Justice, but that didn't help Tim or Bart. And even though comics Cassie had that relationship with Superboy, the creators have been shoving Superboy/Ms Martian down our throats since the pilot.

Though Cassie's origin is a lot less complicated than Donna's.

I think it could be either Wonder Girl at this point.

From: [personal profile] calvision
Yeah, I would have been sure of Wonder Girl being Cassie had the cartoon used Tim and Bart, but since it's Dick and Wally (and Roy) I kind of started to expect Donna.

Or they might do a Donna with something like Cassie's story? Since Donna's is so complicated.

From: [personal profile] long_silence
Plus they even have Garth running around. Just add Donna and you've got a full set of original Titans, for the first time ever on TV.

They didn't even use the actual Arrowette. They used some strange combination of Tigress and Cassandra Cain. Cassie's chances aren't looking too great.

Did Lady Shiva show up or something?

Cartoon Network put a video of the episode up on their website. I think it's been taken down since then.

I'm sure if the latest episode actually was the best yet or simply felt that way because it's been so long since the last one, but I thought it felt like the best yet.
