ANIMATION/SUPERHEROES – Four Reasons Young Justice is the Best Superhero Animated Series
Hands down, is the Best Superhero Animated Series.
There are other series superhero shows that come very close. Justice League animated and do so, but takes what those two shows did so well and elevates it to another level.
If you haven’t seen it, you’re really missing out.
Young Justice is one of the best drawn animated series the U.S. has ever produced. It’s only rival is.
The character designs are great and the action is fantastic.
The look of the show very much appeals to a much older audience. It captures the superhero comic book feel very well.
I love just looking at the show. It makes the heroes look so darn cool. Very well done.
Although this show doesn’t have nearly as many characters as a show like Justice League Unlimited, the characters that show up are really great.
From the very first episodes you get a taste of what these characters are like and how they work together.
This show is not about Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Martian Manhunter, and the rest. It’s about the young people in all these heroes’ lives.
Superboy, Robin, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, Artemis, and a brand new original Aqualad is also introduced.
You might dismiss these characters as “lame” or “just sidekicks, ” but the way they’re written makes each one very compelling. You’d think it would be odd to have Aqualad for example, but he’s one of the best characters in the series. He’s a Water Wizard and does more than just breath underwater and control fish.
The fact that they’re young and are learning to take on more and more dangerous responsibility, makes them even more compelling. In other words, these characters turn out to be VERY cool.
But the roster of characters doesn’t stop with them. The team roster eventually increases as we enter into the second season. Characters like Batgirl, Wonder Girl, Beast Boy, Blue Beetle, Zatana, and even Nightwing make an appearance.
I also like the relationships between the young team and the older Justice Leaguers. Especially the very tense relationship between Superman and Superboy. In this show Superboy is clone of Superman and Lex Luthor. Something Superman is NOT comfortable with, at all.
He expresses this by not wanting to have anything to do with Superboy, who is in desperate need of a father figure like Superman. This really is some of the more dramatic elements of the show.
Which leads me to the other thing I love about this show. The…
As you can see from the unexpected reaction Superman has to Superboy, this show loves to throw Monkey Wrenches at your Superhero expectations. These storyline are the heart and soul of the show. They keep you coming back for more.
