Young Justice Poster: (Left to Right) Artemis, Robin, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Aqualad

"Young Justice - In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over—to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice — Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis—will find out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero. This all-new series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based upon characters from DC Comics."

Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer. Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday, The Batman) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, W.I.T.C.H.) are the producers.

Nice to see they kept the Peter David/Todd Nauck team of Robin, Kon-El, Bart Allen (or is it?), and Arrowette under a different moniker. Miss Martian from the Titans is an interesting choice.

And I see Aqualad has replaced Lagoon Boy and been run through an affirmative-action machine. Was Empress not nonwhite enough for them to use?

Have they combined Arrowette and Wonder Girl into a single character? Uch.

No problem with Aqualad being black. But blond? And without the trademark purple eyes? NOOOO

I wonder how the intended audience will respond to such blatant differences from source material they'll never read and which came out long before they were eating solid food.

I'd be surprised if the same intended audience will even know he used to be a sidekick to some other old super-hero. Fish Guy or Captain Ocean or whatever his name was.

That image just reminds me how much I hate that Superboy costume, how dumb Miss Martian looks and makes me :rolleyes: in regards to the blonde hair because I imagine it's supposed to be cool looking and down with the kids.

This.

Add the horrible Legion of Super-Overused Angst series few remember (so fast, it is embarassing), and you have yet another forgettable series like the bolded references above. As quick as superhero cartoons (well, certain cartoons) reached their zenith between the early 1990s - early 2000s, the wave spawned by the God-awful Teen Titans have kicked the genre right back to the demographically weighed-down nonsense of 70s/80s superhero productions..only the latter day series' producers think their crap is oh-so...edgy and cewl.

I wouldn't say Spectacular Spider-Man was forgettable. I think that's been one of the best animated versions of the character ever put out.

I actively liked the animated Legion, but I rarely sit still in front of the TV on Saturday mornings, so it was hard for me to make it habitual viewing. Granted, I never caught a single season 2 episode, so if it jumped the shark at that point, then I was spared the discomfort.

I can't remember if I liked Legion or not. But then I suppose that is the best indicator as to what I thought of it.

What the hell is up with Conner's pants? The guy barely has a costume and they still couldn't get it right, giving him freaking cargo pants instead of jeans. :lol:

Hey, when you're a super-hero, you need to be able to have plenty of pockets to carry **** around.

I guess a freakin' utility belt...or any other type of concealed belt was not cool enough. After all, the PTB--in their infinite wisdom--know kids just cannot accept a single image that does not look exactly like something indicative of their generation.

Kon couldn't use the utility belt. As soon as he did, Batman would have slapped a lawsuit on him crying trademark infringement.

I'll give this a shot because I think Spectacular Spider-Man is still the best animated representation of that character. But I'm not crazy about most of those designs. Still, can't be as bad as that Cartoon Network abortion.

That actually looks pretty sweet! I didn't realize the Justice League was going to be in this, too! I just assumed it was going to be like the Teen Titans cartoon, where they just existed in their own universe. I'm actually looking forward to this! The animation looks great!

This is cool! I was a Young Justice fan back on the original run and was pretty upset when they stopped it. I'll give the new one a try.

What? I saw a kid in the mall today that looked just like that!

Anywho, that clip makes it seem much more promising than the pic did. :yes:

I think there's going to be some sort of pilot/preview in November and the show will start in Spring 2011.

WHAT is your obsession with superhero hair color?

Yeah, this was totally off the radar for me until I saw the footage at the DC booth at NYCC. It looked pretty awesome.
