  • THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT

    Young Justice "Runaways" Review: A Super Homage and a Not-so-twisty Twist

    I rather enjoyed both the character nods to an older piece of DC animated history and where they fit into the story. As for the Blue Beetle thing, it's nothing we didn't see coming.

  • Episode Summary

    EDIT

    When The Reach's teenage experimental subjects take off on their own, Nightwing sends Blue Beetle after them. Jaime catches up to them but soon has to deal with a marauding android, Red Volcano, and the teenagers help him out.

      • QUOTES (4)

        • Virgil: But, hey... Ed can teleport us out.
          Ed: Haven't you been paying attention? I can only teleport myself, and only along sight lines. Which makes escaping from a windowless, locked hallway somewhat difficult!

        • Red Volcano: No head. Where's Amazo's head?
          Eduardo: Listen. The Justice League sent the head to another location as insurance.
          Red Volcano: Then I'll take your head as compensation.

        • Red Volcano: Burning plasma. Really. You don't seem to have grasped whom you're dealing with. The name is Volcano.

        • Red Volcano: You'll have to do better than that, meat bag.
          Blue Beetle: I'm really more of a meat box.

      • NOTES (1)

        • Challenge of the Homage of the Superfriends
          The four runaways are a homage to the Challenge of the Superfriends series. They include an interracial group that include a black teenager with electrical powers (Virgil = Black Vulcan in the Superfriends), an Asian who can manipulate winds (Sam = Samurai), an Indian who can grow giant- (Tye Longshadow = Apache Chief), and a Hispanic teleporter (Eduardo = El Dorado).
