  • Wasn't Expecting That

    Wasn't Expecting that Red Arrow was the mole. The Creators pulled a fast one over us. Must of been reading these forums and been like o lets not make the mole a usual suspect but a unusual suspect. Awesome episode and the only thing i didn't like about it was the new black chick. Not necessarily her but her voice just pisses me off. Not trying to be Raciest but i can't stand when black people talk like her. Not only that but her dumb ass comments just wanted me to be like "No Shit." When they were talking about the mug shot of chesire.moreless
  • Real Good Episode

    This is something, the team gets a new member who is Rocket. The team than goes to their mission to retrieve the brief case from Cheshire which they get attack only for the team to beat them. When Batman takes the brief case to the Watch Tower, Superboy gets a telepath message from Lex Luthor to come and get more marks. Superboy realize that he could not keeps this secret from his team, so he tells them that he has meant Lex Luther who gave him the marks and he is the half clone of Superman and Lex Luthor. With this told, Artemis decided to tell them that her mother is the retired Huntress, her father is Sports Master, and her sister is Cheshire. Kid Flash than asks who's next, which Miss Martian than reveals her real form as a white martian and she tells them that she thought they wouldn't accept her for what is and how Superboy would hate her, but it turns out that Superboy knew of her true form back in episode nine and still accept her not because of her true form, but her kindness of what she is. With this, the team came up with a plan to surprise Lex Luthor and his allies to make them think that Superboy, Miss Martian, and Artemis come to give them information only to ambush them as the team took out most of the villains except Lex Luthor, Queen Bee, and Cheshire had escape. The team thought that this is indeed a good day, only for the joke to be on them because the brief case has these control things that controls the Justice League and the mole turned out Red Arrow and he was mind control, and with that Vandal Savage has beam up to the Watch Tower to begin for everyone to see the light.moreless
  • Woo. This episode was just full of surprises.

    I loved this episode and the way they slowly revealed things. The choices for new JL members were interesting, plus I like Rocket as a character edition to the YJ team.Then seeing each of the traitor suspects suddenly appear at the villain meeting made my eyes bug out. The flashback to clarify that the secrest were all bravely revealed and the betrayal was a ploy to get one over on the baddies trying to manipulate/blackmail the teammates was clever and I really loved that Cheshire helped out Atrtemis. As a big sister I was saddened by the lack of sisterly love there so to see they still care for each other was a good touch. And then Bam...Red Arrow is revealed to be the traitor (albeit unknowingly) and now the adult JL is in trouble thanks to Vandal Savage. Plus my fave thing is that nobody ever evr considered either Robin or Wally as traitors because they are so awesome and trustworthy. Really, like its impossible to imagine that KF has even one iota of evil in his body. He's such a genuinely nice guy and so trustworthy. Ah..overall, this was a great episode to a great first season and I look forward to more. YJ is love!moreless
  • The Departed

    This is one of my favorate episodes of the show, it was pritty much your big reveal episode but it was one of the ones that are done the right way. When we see all three of the prime suspects in the mole case in one place and each takes a big U turn on us when we think what will happen doesn't. I love the fact that in the whole mole case it turned out to be none of the above, one thing I'm tired of in that format is having even one being gulity at all even if it's a character we like; it's like getting slapped in the face for no reason. Conor, Megan and Artimis have one thing in common each are not sell outs, yes each had secrets but they kept them because they didn't want to endanger the team; but we see each does the right thing and reveal them keeping the sercrets was doing more harm then good.

    Also all three of them are people that have grown up on the wrong side of the tracks. The fact each of them chose to fight for the side of good just goes to show not everyone that grows up on those tracks turns out bad.

    My favorate reveal was Megan's secret that she is a White Martian, didn't supprise me too much I had a hint of that in one episode. I really like the creature design when she is in White Martian form which looks menicing and cool at the same time. But it was touching when we see Connor always knew and his feelings for her haven't changed and nor has any of the others.

    On a side note like the new edition on the team Rocket, she's hot with persona to boot. But this also evens things out with this league because now it's even with both sexes and Aqualad has someone to pair off with, I wish most superhero/hero teams would do this.

    We do find out who the trator is and it's Red Arrow. Which took me by supprise though I probably should of suspected this, he did make multiple accuisations toward Artimis and that usually is a tatic to evade suspision. However he is a trator unknowingly when the main enemy is revealed to be Vandal Savage. Just seeing all the Justice Legue bow to him against their will was both surreal and chilling, and as you see him look over the Earth from Watchtower and you know the war is far from over.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Superman: The Justice League was formed for two reasons--first, as an acknowledgment that no single individual, no matter how powerful, can solve all the world's problems alone. And second, to uphold the values of truth, liberty, and justice. That, uh, last one's even in the name.

    • Kid Flash: I'm glad they didn't kick Billy out. And I love the fact that there's a 10-year-old on the League.
      Rocket: There is?
      Kid Flash: (Robin elbows him) Owww.
      Robin: Way to keep a secret, genius.

    • Rocket: But what's so important about that case?
      Robin: Remember the Injustice League?
      Rocket: And their evil giant plants? Uh, yeah.

    • Superboy: Where are the bodies?
      Cheshire: Here's one. And it is stunning.

    • Riddler: I am flora, not fauna. I am foliage, not trees. What am I? Come on, you can get this. I am not shrubbery, not grass. What am I? I...
      Robin: Ambush.

    • Superboy: I've been using these. Shields. They suppress my human DNA. I get the flight, the heat vision. But I think I also get angry. Well, angrier.

    • (after everyone begins confessing their secrets)
      Kid Flash: So who's next?
      Miss Martian: I am...
      Kid Flash: I swear I was kidding!

    • Robin: Hey, disaster averted. Feeling the aster.
