(Can't believe that some people took it so seriously to think that's canon)
conan has always been my favorite. this only affirms that he is the man.
lol. i think its the same voice actor also.
[beginning off topic rant] By the way, it should have been Storm & Forge's son imo. The whole Black Panther/Storm retcon was crap that Marvel should have never let Reginald Hudlin write. Can't people of different races get married too? Forge & Storm had a long history whereas Black Panther & Storm appeared together in only one backup story until Hudlin came along. [ending off topic rant]
Personally I love the coupling of Storm and Black Panther. I think Storm fits really well into his world and the role of Queen is perfect for the character.
Other than the BWS comics, I never really felt the Storm/Forge chemistry.
After watching the first episode of 'Young Justice' last Friday, I gotta say It was pretty enjoyable. Nice animation, and good characterizations. Good to see a quality superhero cartoon on Cartoon Network again. Now I've already seen that bit with Conan visiting Bruce Timm at Warner Bros. sketching up this wacky superhero idea of his, and was even more shocked that Timm, and company actually animated him into an episode just for laughs. Very impressive. :hmlol:
i am really surprised they fully animated it.. that is awesome..
I would love an SDCC exclusive figure of Flaming C lol
Did anyone get Young Justice #0(it came out yesterday)? It takes place between the last 2 scenes of the 1-hour pilot. I think this might be the first comic based on another property where they actually have it worked out to the exact minute where the comic takes place in the franchise's continuity.
I haven't picked up the comic yet - it probably won't be for another week or so.
I actually just finished writing up a review of the 1 hour movie for my blog. It should be up in an hour or two.
I love that they used the same artwork as Crisis on 2 Earths. I also love that Robin is Richard Grayson and the dynamic he has with Wally West as Kid Flash. I love that Superboy has a bit of a rebellious edge to him.
I don't like how the series premier was just the pilot cut in 2 parts. Can't wait for tomorrow nights episode.
Just in case it was missed here is the Flaming C on Young Justice.

Thanks for posting that Piccolo I actually hadn't seen it yet.
Like I said earlier I was working on the review and here it is (better late than never right?)
Geek Culture's Young Justice Review
I think it's really cool that Conan got to hang out with Bruce Timm and the guys over at WB animation put that together for him.
Did anyone watch the new episode "Welcome to Happy Harbor"? I like Miss Martian's character a lot. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say it was cool to see her powers.
I was much less impressed by the 3rd episode - it felt very "by the numbers".
Wow, Superboy is a total jerk.
I haven't seen the new episode yet, for some reason it doesn't air for me until Sunday. But I can tell you right now I'll agree with you with Miss Martian. I hate to beat a dead horse here but they should have just kept it Arrowette, Wonder Girl and Secret and *NOT* changed them at all. I know that Artemis is going to basically be Cissie and that Wonder Girl and Secret will show up at least briefly down the line.. but they should have kept it Bart, Cissie, Cassie and Susie/Gretta instead of swapping out Bart with Wally and adding Miss Martian when an incarnation of her wasn't even on the team. On the other side I'm actually okay with Robin not being Tim.
As for the villains - I think they're trying to find a balance. They can't be too all powerful but they can't be as big of a joke as Mighty Endowed is.
Now Miss Martian is my favorite character in the show.
I was satisfied by the third episode. I story was okay as was the action. I got the feeling that this team is a lot like the original X-Men with Megan as Jean, Kid Flash as Iceman/Angel, Robin as Cyclops, Aqualad as Beast and Superboy as, well. Wolverine. He came off as a jerk but it seems to me he is struggling with his own humanity/existance. he doesn't even have an Earth OR Kryptonian name yet. Hopefully they resolve to call him Kon El/Conner Kent soon. I really want to like Superboy.
Miss Martian: So are we supposed to fight her?
Kid Flash: Uh, yes! If there is a GOD, YES!!
Though I kind of miss the days of Superboy being comical like that and not so angsty.
I haven't seen any of this since the premiere event. I really want to catch it, but I've been closing the school down for the past few Fridays!
The newest episode was okay. I like Miss Martian, but...um, she doesn't have telekinesis. It wasn't nearly as exciting as the premier, but it certainly wasn't bad.
I am getting to the opinion for a show like this they need to be two half hour segments that tell one story.
Also Miss Martian is technically a white martian in the comics and not related to Martian Manhunter. As this has been stated to be alt universe so doesn't bother me.
