Show Summary

Don't call them sidekicks! Young Justice follows the adventures of the teenaged superheroes Aqualad (the team leader, age 15 or 16), Robin (age 13), Kid Flash (age 15), Superboy (age 16 weeks), Miss Martian (age 16 in Martian years), and Artemis (age 15), who have finally gained independence from their leaders and the privilege to start their own covert operations team (of the very popular Justice League). The series is not based on the Young Justice comic series by DC Comics or any comic series in particular, but is simply based on various young heroes of the DC universe - who are sidekicks and protégés of infamed adult DC superheroes (most of which make up the Justice League). Set in Earth 16, the show focuses on the heroes trying to use their powers and abilities to fight crime on their own and make a name for themselves while trying to handle their adolescent years at the same time. Batman takes on the role of the team's mentor and mission deployer, Red Tornado is the team supervisor, and Black Canary is the young heroes' combat trainer. As the series progresses, the main team's roster is expected to change as characters die, quit the team, and join the team.


    Young Justice Series Finale Review: Business as Usual

    Young Justice went out not with a bang, but not quite with a whimper, either.

    • Overrated, but decent show.

      This is not a bad show, but it's waaaaay overrated. When I have the time I'll probably edit this review and go into further detail but for right now, all I can say is it's ridiculous that people say this show is in the same league as Batman: The Animated Series or Justice League/Unlimited. Both those shows are waaaaay better. Young Justice is more at Teen Titans level.
    • Overrated and Uninteresting

      This is not a horrible show, however I can't understand why everyone is

      praising it so highly. To me, it is a slightly better version of Teen

      Titans. For the record, I am not a fan of that show either.

      For one, the main characters hold no appeal to me whatsoever. I have no

      interest in watching a show about obscure teenage sidekicks such as

      Aqualad, Superboy, Kid Flash, etc. Give me Batman, Superman, Wonder

      Woman and Green Lantern any day over their teen-aged counterparts who

      I'd rather forget even exist.

      Also, I don't view this as a very mature show. Everyone seems to be

      going on and on about how mature this show is, but if you're watching a

      show comprised of a bunch of 13-year olds dealing with things like

      crushes and other adolescent type problems, how is that very mature?

      It's absolutely ridiculous to suggest that this show is more mature

      than say Batman: TAS or Justice League/JLU. Granted, the writing is

      decent and more complex than most kids shows so in that regard it is a

      little more mature. BUT, let's keep this in perspective people!

      The character designs and overall style of the show are just "okay" to

      me. I'm not at all a fan of anime and while this show isn't really

      anime, it definitely draws some inspiration from it. It certainly is an

      improvement over Teen Titans, which is much more clearly anime to me.

      However, I would prefer if the show bared no resemblance to anime at


      Overall, this show is not bad. I just think it is overrated and more of

      a kids show. Nothing wrong with that at all, and as far as kids shows go

      it is pretty well done. But as an adult, I couldn't get into it and

      can't understand the high praise specifically for maturity that it has


      I love the plot it packs comedy and action at the same time it is one of the best shows ever! Teen titans Go should be cancelled to bring back Young Justice!
    • Season1, season 2 and please bring back season 3

      worth paying to watch amazing show! best show ever!
    • Season 2

      I think this is one of the best animated shows. It`s amazing character devolpment, great script, and also the story. The story comes out right from the beginning and says there is a secret society and from then on it`s one great episode after another fighting this war that they have.
