Pining for Saturday morning toons?

If you haven’t managed to catch the first two episodes of the Young Justice cartoon aired on the Cartoon Network before Christmas, then you have really missed a treat. Still, don’t despair, the rest of the series continues this with a repeat of the second episode this Friday.

Now I may have fallen for the sillyness that was the JLI some fifteen years ago, but when it came to the immature antics of Young Justice, I was never a fan. This however is a lot different.

Compared to the first episode of the Justice League cartoon, this is more character driven and a real treat for DC fans, or a new viewer. Falling under the former category myself, I geeked out with the way the various characters were introduced, especially Superboy and Project Cadmus. The real treat however is the inclusion of the new Aqua-Lad, only recently introduced in the ‘real’ continuity; and Miss Martian, who is a character that desperately needs fleshing out. Maybe here she will have a chance to shine.

The show was lucky enough to get some extra publicity from the Conan O’Brien Show, after a visit from Conan himself to the Warner Brothers animation studios.

Although hardly complimentary to the show, this is a moment of comedy genius, and obviously the new identity for Mr O’Brien himself as the Flaming C.

Fishnet stockings not withstanding, Young Justice shows a lot of potential, so much so it has been given its own Earth in the multiverse, Earth-16.  This may actually make Lor-Zod of Countdown:Arena homeless, but then who cares? Lor-Zod didn’t appear to have much of a history anyway.

Oh, he’s supposed to be Chris Kent? How’s that work out then?
