With it being a week after the Season 2 Finale, I figured fans have had some time to reflect on the series. Just as the title says, this is the thread for fans to share their thoughts on their favorite Season of Young Justice, with the 3rd option being for those who liked both seasons equally. Let's also be sure to give reasons for our choices as that adds to discussion and I'm sure others will be curious to hear.
Having given it some time to think it over, I would say that I liked both Seasons equally and for their own reasons.
I felt Season 1 kicked things off in a strong manner and did a fine job at introducing the formation of the Young Justice Team. I particularly liked how they took their time to spread the formation of the team coming together instead of rushing it. Superboy and Miss Martian certainly got the most attention this Season, I can understand why since they knew the least about Earth-16, much like we the audience did on first viewing. Artemis' storyline about avoiding the fate of her criminal family was a particular favorite part of the Season for me, she certainly deserves a lot of credit for all she overcame. Making Zatanna a contemporary of the sidekicks was a different and interesting change and I liked Captain Marvel's prominent supporting role, as well as seeing this version of Beast Boy's origins. While quite the base breaker, I did quite like this show's portrayal of Joker, he reminded me of Heath Ledger's take while still having some unique traits, as well. I also grew fond of Red Arrow and was quite surprised that he was the mole and a clone of the original Speedy. I would have to say that the downsides of this Season for me was that Ocean Master got the shaft as far as Light Members go (Ra's Al Ghul and Brain only faired a tiny bit better) and Denial was probably my least favorite episode of the series. Usual Suspects and Auld Acquaintance were certainly a strong way to end the Season and the "16 Hours" was quite the hook.
Season 2 certainly started off with quite a curveball in the form of the time skip. I didn't hate the time skip, I was just surprised by it and it did throw me off. Having watched the whole season, I do understand why they did it and I do have more of an appreciation for it, just goes to show how patience pays off. By Greg Weisman's statements, Season 2 was more plot-driven with the "Reach Saga" being a much closer-knit storyline then Season 1 and featured Nightwing, Aqualad, Miss Martian, Artemis and Blue Beetle as its main characters. This was my first exposure to Blue Beetle and I quite liked him; I didn't have a problem with his important role as it made sense given that the Reach are from his rogue's gallery and I did enjoy his comedy. Black Beetle and Deathstroke were great additions to the villain side of characters and I did like seeing Sportsmaster isn't quite as heartless as we first thought. Black Manta's accession as a member of the Light was great and I did like seeing him as a Type I Anti-Villain (a villain who, while evil, still has some noble qualities), his and Aqualad's part in the story was a favorite of mine and I did feel bad for them in Summit. Green Beetle was also a great addition, I wouldn't mind if he became part of the mainstream comics like Harley Quinn did. The Runaways were also interesting characters, I was glad to see Static join the Young Justice Team at the end. While Kid Flash is my least favorite of the initial 6, I still did feel bad when he died and thought his sacrifice was quite noble. The downside of the season for me was how Beast Boy, Robin III, Batgirl and Wonder Girl didn't get much attention (though the first 3 will get to be playable in the upcoming video game, at least), as well as how Savage, Luthor and Manta were the only significant Light Members. Idid think the hook with Darksied at the end was great and it is a shame that we don't get to see the "Darksied Saga" play out in this show.
Well, that's my thoughts on the Seasons; the rest of y'all have at it now!
