I originally reviewed Young Justice on my other blog, The Land of Whatever, back in January 2011, when the series began a weekly run on Cartoon Network. New episodes have finally started airing as part of the DC Nation package on Saturday mornings, coupled with Green Lantern.
Let's bring you up to speed. Young Justice is comprised of Kid Flash, Robin (founding members in the comics of the Teen Titans), Superboy, Aqualad (a new version created for the show, not the original), and Ms. Martian (who was created for a later comics incarnation of the Titans), and later joined by Artemis, not to be confused with the blonde Amazon who took over as the star of Wonder Woman's mag in the 90's. This Artemis is posited as a sub for Arrowette, who was part of the comic book Young Justice a few years ago. The producers thought Artemis was a cooler name. As the first 13 episodes closed, the writers had paired Superboy, a clone sprung from Cadmus' labs, with Ms. Martian (Danica McKellar, ex-The Wonder Years), and there is also a minor attraction between Artemis & Kid Flash, though I don't think that's meant to last.
Following is a sample clip from the series opener, "Independence Day":
Naturally, DC has launched a comic based on the show, as they do for all of their animated series. The only question that remains is how long WB will continue to produce Justice for CN.
