    • Batman quitting the Justice League, taking Batwoman, Robin, and Spoiler with him is classic Batman.

    • And here I was hoping we wouldn't get Outsiders because Batman threw a hissyfit.

    • Can't say I care for all the flashbacks throughout all 3 episodes... The sudden proposal was the biggest positive reaction the show has gotten out of me so far. I squirm when they show the violence and gore in graphic detail. I'm going to keep watching obviously and hope the episodes focus more on the good story telling I remember.

    • Glad this time, they mention the royal status of an underage monarch. Can't help but feel my questions on the regent for Vltava helped. Or maybe that's just my ego.

    • Bruh, Robin looked badass. Too bad that we only saw him for half a second and that was to ignore his girlfriend. Sorry Ex-girlfriend 😂

    • My wild guess is the assassin is Jaculi. They mentioned there'd be elements from Ostrander's Suicide Squad.

      Ah, thanks. Was wondering who he was. I love his design, shame he's a one shot.

    • Watched all three episodes. Interesting how they took one overarching story arc within the three episodes and resolved a number of things, but left plenty of unanswered questions for future episodes.

      They had a good arc for Black Lightning and now he has motivation to remain part of the covert ops team.

      They also appear to have set up Superboy becoming the mentor for Brion Markov and that Brion's learning to control his powers will be similar to what Superboy's arc once was.

      And part of me wonders if Artemis actually becomes Halo's mentor. Nothing says heroes have to share a similar power or skill set for one to mentor the other.

      I like the new take on Miss Martian, in which she taken a White Martian form when operating as a superhero. Also, not surprising that they didn't release images of her beforehand so there would at least be one surprise.

      Kaldur'ahm as Aquaman is a great twist, but we all already knew that.

      Now we know why Beast Boy is affected by Wally West's death -- and, yes, it absolutely makes sense that Queen Perdita would show up for Wally's funeral.

      Good to see more of Count Vertigo again.

      It's going to take time to get used to James Arnold Taylor voicing G. Gordon Godfrey.

      The casting of Whitney Moore to voice Courtney Whitmore cannot be a coincidence. ;)

      ETA: Also, we finally get Troia animated. Cool!

    • I can probably never get used to JAT as GGG. Curry is wheelchair bound after a stroke, and has only done a one or two things since.

      It's unfortunate that several of the voice actors from YJ's past seasons will never get to contribute again.

      And if getting used to a new voice actor for GGG is tough, I can't imagine who has to follow in Miguel Ferrer's footsteps as Vandal Savage.

    • On another note, I'm going through the episodes again to look for Easter eggs I may have missed.

      For example, in Episode 3, Eminent Threat, the Goode Goggles touchscreen includes Hello Megan and the Steve Lombard Sports Show.

      Yep. And we were introduced to Goode in Torch Song. Guess they also offer an online streaming service.

      Maybe, in-universe, Gar's popularity has reignited interest in his mom's old show?

    • And as for who Wilhelm Peters and Nikolas Stofka are:

      No idea. There are two speaking parts I remember, a guard and the old man.

      • Nikolas Stofka is a character from Outsiders 14
      • Wilhelm Peters is too genetic to find anything.
        Loading editor
    • Stofka must be the guy who shoots Plasmus, since Peters is credited in both 302 and 303, but Stofka is only in 303.

    • Comics Nikolas is a teenager, though. But at least he's Markovian.

    • Great stuff!! The only thing that stood out was the animation. eMation and even DR Motion Studio are in no way on par with MOI or Lotto. And it's a real shame because you can really tell the difference in the action scenes. Hopefully it will get better over time.

      The other thing was how Helga was telegraphed to be a villain ("I'm a physician, not a mad scientist"?).

      Other than that it's like the show never went on a 5-year hiatus. JAT was fine as Tim Curry. As fine as anyone who's not Tim Curry can be Tim Curry.

    • Few things at the top of mind, sure more to come.

      United Bialya being a UN member now, presumably due to having more acceptable limits on the Justice League.

      Rhelaysia United. Their Ambassador plus Markovia's ofc being comic villains too.

      Troia was great, seems perfect fit in the role, Tempest a bit more nervous/emotive.

      We have a new Ship! Should it be under Gardita?

      Oracle was adorable, and we knew since Invasion comics she was emote savvy.

      Henchy back in action, and even referred to by name this time!

      Do hope the next episodes have more self contained stories rather than all being three parters.

    • Cannot. Get. Over. The Animation.

      Ugh, I'm pissed that that's the first thing that comes to my mind. Quick initial thoughts: It's still Young Justice. I enjoyed the episodes. Interesting development with the League. And really liked Black Lightning. I'll expand more once I rewatch.

    • Also, apparently YJO crashed the DC Universe servers? If true, it's very fitting ;)

    • Yeah, I was ready to hit play the moment it went live and it was very slow. Had to refresh multiple times before it started.

    • Didn't catch a lot of Easter eggs, but there are several trivia bits, such as in Episode 302, "this is not a bicycle built for two" and "It's What You Know," and in Episode 303, the "also a client" quote.

      And in Episode 302, two references to the number 16 in the Garfield Logan clip.

      I thought the password to the facility beneath the children's hospital had references to 16, but that's not the case.

      Also, two League designations confirmed for Kaldur'ahm (27) and Steel (36). The new Team members, we already saw them.

      It's buried in there (2136) but I don't think it counts as a reference. But I don't think that combination is random either.

      By the way, feel free to add info to the pages. We're shorthanded here.

    • So Theory time.

      Weirdness of titles aside, I think they might still hold their double meanings, just that they're going to be deeper. A perculiarity in Royal We, the broken Motherbox - which doesn't seem to relate to the rest of the episode.

      The scene after, shows Halo's miraculous resurrection, what appears to be a light from the heavens going into the corpse from what little we see. They refer to her as a Meta, but they'd also referred to Superboy as such this episode so that can easily be an in-character mistake.

      I'd originally thought that the Aurakle-origin were intact. But with the motherbox threadline, plus her connection with Sphere, I'm thinking that Halo is a Motherbox AI possessing her. Perhaps the body has a consciousness still in some way, perhaps not.

      This shared consciousness concept would lend a reason to the Royal We title, as it is often used by Sybiotic/Shared Consciousness entity gestalts, as well as by Royals.

    • I think you might be onto something. In the opening scene of Princes All, a Fatherbox heals a parademon with purple light. Sound familiar?

        Loading editor
    • That would make sense. Someone mentioned how they were taking apart the Mother Boxes which were sentient and feeling (a detail I don't think we got in previous seasons so it must be important in this one). Also, Mother Boxes are New Gods tech so the sentience inside must be immortal. I'm guessing she possesses three colors and three different modes. Red = Energy Manipulation (shields and maybe blasts), Purple = Healing, Yellow = Teleportation (because it's the same color as a Boom Tube).

    • Orange = flight.

      I thought the choice for purple could also have been a nod to the Purple Healing Ray.

    • Should there be a page for this new covert ops team Nightwing put together, even if it's not named to Outsiders yet?

        Loading editor
    • No. It's just four people working together for, as they said, a one time thing.

      Let's not speculate on the future. Maybe Batman's team will be the Outsiders instead? Who knows?

    • In terms of "Royal We" -Good idea to update Space Trek's title from 2020 to 3016 for this show. lol. -Loved that the PSA did both a nod to the 9/11 slogan and NBC's The More You Know.

      But question, I noticed on the article page, there's two uncredited characters named, Johann Mintz and Piotor Platz. When were those names spoken in the episode?

    • Those names were on Artemis' tech lenses, apparently.

    • What I liked:

      Greg Cipes returning as the voice of Beast Boy

      Miss Martian's white martian look. She's still gorgeous even in the that state.

      Superboy proposing to Miss Martian

      What I didn't like:

      The return of Count Vertigo

      The poor girl being unable to heal that dead creature, whatever it was.

      Several members, like Batman quitting the Justice League

      His majesty's parents being killed off

      Hope to see more new episodes soon. Hopefully, we'll hear from other voice actors as well, like Jim Cummings, Salli Richardson, and Will Friedle.

      There's nothing to indicate any of those three will do anything. You might as well list three random names out of a phone book.

      The only confirmed voice that hasn't been on yet is Britt Baron, and recent rumors think Zeno Robinson is doing something.

      I agree. I was really upset by this too but then I heard that this season is kind of split into two arcs and that the next half of the season will be streaming during the summer. I guess this first half focuses on the new team, the Outsider, and when summer comes around, we'll be seeing the actual Team again.

    • Forgot all about the early 2019 release date for season 3 because of a hectic start to the new year! Last night I found out that the first three episodes were already released so I took the one week free trial. Had to get up early in the morning so I told myself one episode only, but of course, Young Justice sucked me in until the end. 

      I might be completely biased on my thoughts of the first three episodes, specifically because I couldn't shake the mix of feelings while watching them (excited, anxious, nostalgic, etc.) but damn am I glad it's back!

      I expected myself to be thrown off by the changes we knew were coming, i.e. animation and more graphic imagery, but honestly, it felt right somehow. Like the show developing story and character-wise, the look of the show feels like a progression on its own, at least in my opinion. Sure, I could't ignore that a lot of the Leaguers look way different than before, for example, but it's easy to get over. All I know is that the Aquaman look on Kaldur and Green Arrow's new suit? Hella nice. Love that Alan is still the voice of Oliver, by the way.

      It's a little weird skipping to the end when talking about first impressions, but I really enjoyed the tranquil endings to the episodes (end credits). They're just amusing to me, and I know it's gonna be a "bruhhh" moment every time a cliff-hanger or tense ending follows up with something like Wolf and Sphere cuddling in a vacant base together. 

      Incorporating Gar's background as an actor was dope to see; seeing Courtney as a TV figure was kind of weird but yolo I guess. GGG voiced by anyone other than Tim Curry was unimaginable, but not a terrible takeover by JAT. Plastic Man is still an absolute cool ass after all these years, as expected.

      The ball's just started rolling but I'm already enthralled by the main storyline. Metahuman trafficking was brilliant and it's looking good so far. I think Brion is being developed fantastically; I feel like he's pretty well established even though it's only been 3 episodes. Don't know if it's just me/if I need a rewatch but all I'm seeing are positives right now! Hell, even Halo is getting fleshed out (pun-intended) slowly but surely. Can't wait for them to introduce the latest Team and weave them into the main storyline. 

      Also, 3 episodes a week? It felt pretty goldilocks to me (just right instead of too little or too much). Wondering about everyone else's view on that. 

      Anyway, I'm feeling the aster. YJ is back, baby!!

    • I get the impression that Brion has become what Superboy was in Season 1. Someone powerful with anger issues and prone to outbursts that can endanger people around him.

        Loading editor
    • And as such, Superboy being his mentor shows his personal growth.

        Loading editor
    • Does anyone know if whether or not Gar, L'gann, Karen, and Mal are still part of them? I think that should be put in unanswered questions. Just a thought.
