Transcript of Young Justice

Young Justice Dan Grayson/ Robin/ Nightwing (voiced by Jesse McCartney) Young Justice Young Justice Young Justice Young Justice Young Justice Irving Gomez #7 P.G. Young Justice Young Justice Miss Martian / M'gann M'orzz / Megan Morse (voiced by Danica McKellar) The show corresponds to the present time of our world, a time period Vietti has called "a new age of heroes". The pilot episode (later re-broadcast as the opening two episodes of season 1) aired a month prior to the debut of the regular series and introduced four characters: Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Speedy. It established their desire for greater recognition and respect, namely, a promotion from sidekicks to full-fledged superheroes. Met with opposition from their respective mentors in the Justice League, Batman, Aquaman, Flash, and Green Arrow, the protégés react in different ways. Speedy resigns from being Green Arrow's partner and begins calling himself Red Arrow. The others seek to persuade their mentors of their worth by secretly taking on a Justice League mission to investigate the Cadmus building. During their infiltration of Cadmus' headquarters, the three heroes find a clone of Superman named Superboy. After the discovery, the team finds out Cadmus is creating living weapons called Genomorphs. The episode deals with this revelation, the origin of Superboy, and how this relates to a mysterious group of people called the Light. In the end, Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Superboy negotiate with Batman to organize a covert operations team as a practical contrast to the Justice League, whose celebrity status makes it difficult to maintain secrecy or initiate stealth operations. After consulting with his colleagues, Batman establishes Young Justice in a secret cave located inside a former Justice League headquarters, Mount Justice, a hollowed-out mountain. Here the teens are trained and mentored by the Justice League. Miss Martian makes an appearance at the end of the episode and joins as the fifth member. Known as Robin throughout Season 1; Grayson was, though only thirteen, the most experienced member of the team. He does not possess any superpowers, however, he is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant, tactician, and a technological genius. He has a flippant personality, and can be heard laughing in combat or when sneaking up on villains in order to unnerve and startle them. He repeatedly plays with the English language, particularly with words which cease to function without prefixes, such as "disaster" ("aster"), "underwhelmed" ("whelmed"), and "distraught" ("traught"). Batman has forbidden Robin from revealing his secret identity to the team, though Kid Flash is aware of it. Robin acts as team leader when Aqualad is unable to. Aqualad sees Robin as reluctant to lead the team, feeling that he doesn't know enough. "Eventually he shows that he is a natural born leader. And that's just part of what you'll see from Dan Grayson". In Season 2 (set five years later in the future), Dan has assumed the identity of Nightwing while Tim Drake has assumed the mantle of Robin. Nightwing remains on the team as their leader and trainer, assigning and participating in missions. Dick encourages Tim to have confidence in his leadership skills, but the latter is apprehensive about doing so. Aqualad / Kaldur'ahm (voiced by Khary Payton) In Season 1, Kaldur 'Ahm (or "Kaldur" for short) was the sixteen-year-old leader of the team. His powers, channeled through the tattoos on his arms, are a mixture of Atlantean sorcery and science.[citation needed] He displays super strength, durability, as well as the ability to breathe and speak underwater, typical of Atlanteans. He also possesses the ability to form hard water constructs through the use of his Atlantean water bearers and to generate electricity. He was selected as the initial leader for the Team, but stated that he did not want to remain leader and wished to turn over leadership to Robin when he was ready, saying that it was his destiny to lead this team. In Season 2 (set five years in the future), Aqualad is Nightwing's mole in his father Black Manta's organization in order to infiltrate the Light and discover who their partner is. His "defection" is based upon his being the son of Black Manta (which Aquaman covered up) as well as the death of Tula in an earlier Team mission. When Miss Martian fights Aqualad later, her psychic abilities caused her to learn about Aqualad and Tigress' true mission with the psychic attack leaving Aqualad in an apparently-catatonic state. Superboy / Conner Kent (voiced by Nolan North) Superboy is introduced as a sixteen-week-old clone of Superman (later revealed to be a hybrid clone of Superman and Lex Luthor) created by Project Cadmus. Although he does not have all of Superman's abilities, he has super strength, invulnerability, enhanced hearing, and later: infrared vision. Lex Luthor later gave Superboy a set of patches which suppresses Superboy's human DNA, giving him his full Kryptonian abilities, similar to those of Superman's; however they only last for typically an hour, and his aggression increases as well. Superboy is typically sullen, ill-tempered, and hates being told what to do. His nonexistent relationship with Superman only adds to this anger. He becomes romantically involved with M'gann while under cover in Belle Reve. Sometime between Season 1 and Season 2, Superboy ended their relationship due to in part to the fact he does not outwardly age, as well as M'gann using her telepathic powers to violently extract information from enemies; even more so, that she tried to tamper with his mind to make him try to forget that they had argued about it. Five years after the events of Season 1, Superboy has remained on with the Team and his formerly apprehensive relationship with Superman has greatly improved, with Superman now referring to him as a brother. Conner is more in control of his anger, resourceful and more familiar with alien technology. Greg Weisman notes that Nolan North provides "good separation" between the dual roles he portrays as Superman and Superboy. Young Justice Young Justice Blue Beetle / Jaime Reyes (voiced by Eric Lopez) Sometime during the five year lapse between Seasons 1 and 2, he joined the Team. A device called the Scarab is permanently attached to his spine, providing him a battle suit and advises him on what it feels is the best course of action in many situations. However, Jaime frequently ignores this advice as it is often aimed at violent solutions to problems and is seen at these times to be talking to himself. Superboy is currently the only person that knows that Jaime is talking to the scarab. The scarab is believed to be the last invention made by Ted Kord before the Light killed him, but it is revealed in the episode 'Before the Dawn' that its origins lie with the alien organisation known as the Reach, who seek to retrieve the scarab, which will kill Jaime. In the future, a Blue Beetle is shown to have enslaved the human race, which Impulse traveled back in time to prevent. Irving Gomez #7 P.G. Kid Flash / Wally West (voiced by Jason Spisak) During Season 1, Kid Flash is the team's sixteen-year-old speedster. He has enhanced speed, although he has not fully mastered his abilities, often falling down while running at high speeds due to a misstep. Kid Flash cannot vibrate his molecules through solid objects like the Flash and gets a bloody nose if he attempts to. He is a flirt, beginning with M'gann and extending to any woman he comes into contact with. Kid Flash and Robin know each other outside the team, even knowing each other's secret identities. Wally likes to collect souvenirs from the team's missions, such as T. O. Morrow's robotic eye and Cheshire's mask. Ava Dordi, of the Palo Alto Voice notes that Jason Spisak "captures the Lighthearted essence of Kid Flash well". In Season 2 (set five years in the future), Kid Flash has given up the superhero life and is in a relationship with Artemis with the two living and attending college together. Wally does however, assume the guise of Kid Flash once again during the crisis involving Neutron wherein he assists Impulse and the two Flashes (Jay Garrick and Barry Allen) with containing a major explosion. It is revealed that Wally was aware of Nightwing's plan to fake Artemis's death so she could be placed in deep cover alongside Aqualad. Artemis / Tigress / Artemis Crock (voiced by Stephanie Lemelin) Artemis was the team's fifteen-year-old archer. Like Robin, she has no superpowers, but is very skilled with a bow and arrow. She is introduced as Green Arrow's "niece" but it is later revealed that this is not the case. Red Arrow, who knows she isn't, believes that there was good reason behind Batman and Green Arrow's decision to add her to the team, as well as their concealment of her real identity, and therefore agrees not reveal his suspicions about her to the rest of the group—but warns Artemis to not harm his friends. She is the daughter of the villain Sportsmaster and the now paraplegic ex-villain Huntress, as well as the sister of Cheshire. In Season 2 (set five years in the future), she and Wally West (Kid Flash) left the superhero life, and are in a relationship, with the two living and attending college together. She returns to duty, only to subsequently fake her death so she can go undercover with Aqualad, adopting the identity Tigress, and apparently help him complete his long term mission. Miss Martian is Martian Manhunter's teenaged (by Martian standards, though she is in her 40's in earth years) niece, as well as being an inexperienced superhero. As a Martian, she has telekinesis, telepathy, and flight. Additionally, she can shape-shift to a limited extent. She has stated that she cannot become intangible as her uncle can, implying that this is an advanced skill; however, by Season 2 she had learned this power. In later episodes, Martian Manhunter discovers that her raw abilities, particularly in terms of telepathy and mind control, are potentially greater than his own. She pilots her own bio-ship, which transports the team and can become camouflaged with the surrounding area. She is kind and optimistic, but has a naive streak born of having learned about life on Earth through television shows. In line with this, she makes regular use of the catchphrase "Hello, Megan!" when suddenly realizing something. She becomes romantically involved with Superboy while working undercover with him in Belle Reve. While it is revealed to the viewer in the episode "Image" that she is concealing her identity as a non-humanoid White Martian, she finally reveals her true form to the team in the episode Usual Suspects, though Superboy had known since they had mind-bonded in the past. Danica McKellar thinks her character is "Awesome. Like most of the characters on the show, she's dealing with two very different but coexisting aspects of her life: she's a superhero and also an insecure teenager, all at the same time." Sometime in the five year lapse between Season 1 and Season 2, Superboy ended their romantic relationship because he does not outwardly age, as well as M'gann abusing her powers to get information from her enemies, rendering the victim in a comatose state, to the point where she's "no better than Psimon", and at some point attempted to make him forget he was upset. She has become more confident in her abilities and lost her naive streak. Garfield Logan (the current Beast Boy) from the episode "Image" has become her adopted brother after the death of his mother.
