I grew up reading comics, particularly the DC comics like
Superman, Batman, Superboy, Teen Titans, The Legion of Superheroes, and the
Justice League. "Young Justice" takes the sidekicks of the Justice League and
gives them their own adventures. Now, you might be saying, "Wait, I thought
that's what Teen Titans was all about?" Well, yes, it is, and this is similar to
that comic book and show. I don't really why they decided to reinvent the Teen
Titans and then call them by a different name, but I'm guessing that there is
already a Young Justice comic book out there, and they are just cashing in on
So it has Robin, and Kid Flash, and Aqualad. The others are a Superboy (clone of
Superman), and Miss Martian. The cover also refers to another girl named
Artemis, but I don't recall seeing her at all in the DVD's. Perhaps she shows up
later in the show.
There are only four episode son the DVD set. I hate when they split up seasons
like this. I wish they would stop doing that, but no one listens to me.
The disk has no extras or features, so it is a very spare set. I guess they
rushed it out to promote the rest of the season. Hopefully they will eventually
come out with a more complete set.
The show is well done, just like the Justice League and other animated shows
they've done in the past 15 years. There is a lot of action, so kids should love
it. It's got the usual big villains and big heroes as well as lots of
wise-cracking, along with some teen awkwardness.
I enjoyed it, even though I'm 49. I look forward to the rest of the episodes.
Anyone who likes comics or cartoons should enjoy it.
