Young Justice, All we know is not easy being green, but it seems even harder to be a companion of a superhero. (Do not even get us started to be a companion of a superhero and being green, as one of the stars of “Young Justice”).
If you’re a fan of the various entertainment shows that DC and Warner Bros. have created over the past two decades, is likely to “Young Justice” is now on his radar – or maybe this is the first time we are hearing about of the new super series, an energetic take some family – and lesser known – the teen heroes such as Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Superboy, and Miss Mars Artemis. Similar in tone to the superb “Justice League Unlimited”, but focusing more on the generation of “Teen Titans”, “Young Justice” is sure to entice avid fans and newcomers DC.
TV Squad was lucky to get an advanced screener of the night air one-hour pilot of the event (Friday, November 26) at 7 pm ET on Cartoon Network. Join us after the jump for our review Advanced – spoilers will be light, but nothing to ruin the enjoyment of the show.
As a reviewer, you’re never quite sure what’s going to get with a pilot who has the unenviable task of creating characters, building the foundations of a plot throughout the season, and trying to present an attractive, self-narrative around in the space of one hour or less. Luckily, the first episode of “Young Justice” success on all counts, which offers action, humor and some intriguing team dynamics clearly develop over time.
To kick things off, we have four buddies and their mentors superhero, the couple’s most recognizable are Batman and Robin, followed by the lesser known (but impressive) Speedy and Green Arrow, Aquaman and Aqualad and Kid Flash and The Flash, each in his hometown equivalent.
The four duets are simultaneously fending off a well-coordinated attack by a villain based ice, but the teenage heroes are restless, anxious each ditch the bad guys and get to the moment you’ve all been waiting for – the induction into the legendary Justice League, the flagship superhero team featuring heavyweights like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
But the followers are in shock – his mentors are not sure they are ready to become full members of the team’s high profile and long-awaited indoctrination over a pass into the Hall of Justice library, gymnasium and kitchen. .. not quite the expected promotion.
The snub is a little insulting to Speedy, who wastes no time in ditches his mentor and assault in a moment, paving the way, we assume, for lesser-known companion Artemis Green Arrow to join the team in later episodes.
The adult league players make the mistake of leaving things unresolved with young couples, and three other teenagers decide to take the initiative and prove themselves worthy of the super computer, the installation of a mysterious secret mission to the Cadmus project. Inside, the trio makes a surprising discovery that strengthens them as a team and help to prove their worth to their mentors.
While the pilot “Young Justice” does a competent job of staging for newcomers to the DC Universe, there is certainly much for existing fans to love – from the use of villains known as Blockbuster, Amanda Waller and Mr . Freeze, the inclusion of the identities of the teen heroes “civil. The producers also promise to include a wide variety of beloved characters from DC – 135 through episode 16 only, including Captain Marvel, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, and Green Lantern.
True Batman fans may be pleased to hear (like me) that the version “Young Justice” Robin is Dick Grayson, the original iteration of the character. In an interesting twist, 13-year-old Robin is not going to lead the team as it has in previous incarnations, that honor instead going to the old Aqualad, also known as Kaldur’ahm, a new version of the character created specifically for the show. Original comic book Aqualad, Garth, will appear later in the series as Friend Kaldur of Atlantis.
Since the version of “Young Justice” The Flash is played by the original comic book character, Barry Allen, it makes sense that her partner, Kid Flash, is also represented by his original partner, nephew Wally West. (Fans of ‘Justice League Unlimited’ will remember the series with Wally West as Flash adult instead of Barry Allen, just to confuse everyone.)
Creators Greg Weisman (“Gargoyles”) and Brandon Vietti (“Batman: Under the Red Hood), apparently decided to go with the first versions of the characters to distinguish the continuities others who came before him. Unlike ‘Justice League Unlimited, “which shared roots and voice actors with previous shows like Batman: The Animated Series”, “Young Justice” will take place in a universe where the concept of superheroes is still quite Again, Superman has been revealed on earth just a decade before it starts, while Batman has been active for only nine years, allowing the series to tread new ground, instead of relying on the complicated history that above.
voice talent for the series is impressive, Bruce Greenwood (“Star Trek”) reprises his role as Batman from the movie direct to video animated “Batman: Under the Red Hood”, while singer Jesse McCartney is surprisingly clever as Robin . Many familiar faces from television and other projects for Warner Bros. Animation are set to provide their pipelines, such as Alan Tudyk, Phil Lamarr, Kelly Hu and Rob Lowe.
line readings are discrete and are well suited to the characters, but I would like Speedy (Crispin Freeman) has been a little less on top – I hope you have calmed down a little at a time the character reappears. My only real quibble was with some of the repetitive lines (“Today is the day” is much overused in the first five minutes you never want to hear the phrase again) but it is expected that as the writers to settle in the show, topics will iron themselves. I also would have liked to see the inclusion of Miss Mars and Artemis in the story of the pilot, but with a lot of ground to cover in the first episode, I can understand the decision not to shoehorn in the formula.
The animation is clean and safe, and the action sequences are suitably impressive, especially the fight scenes that take place in Cadmus. The pace and tone is tense moments of tension mixed with much-needed light, taking into account a driver who is fun to watch while conveying a sense of urgency.
Certain aspects of the show seems different from anything a DC animated series has offered before, what puzzles me. Since the high-profile members of the Justice League are positioned as the celebrities that each mission is reviewed by the public in the same way we track the love life of Jennifer Aniston, I’m interested in seeing how the program has problems of fame, identity and independence, especially with the Young Justice team as more of a covert team of special operations as adults.
The series is also biased towards a teenage audience adult /, compared with the younger demographic white cartoon “Teen Titans” the more slapstick, and the creators have stated above that will focus on the heroes, both inside and outside the costumes, which deals with life at home and school life, as well as covert missions involved in less than Batman, Black Canary and Red Tornado guidance. I’m interested to see how the program takes care of adolescence in her civilian identity, as has often been an untapped resource in the sample that came before it.
In general, the pilot episode of “Young Justice” is a strong start to what appears to be a new, involving taking the myth of a superhero. I’m excited to see where the program progresses from here, and predict it will become appointment viewing for fans of comics and newcomers alike.
