A six-minute preview of DC Comics new animated series Young Justice has been released. This is the same preview that was shown at New York Comic-Con. The series doesn't look like it will be too bad, but it doesn't look as good as Marvel's The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, which has been an awesome series! If you're not watching it you should start.
In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over - to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you're not just a normal teenager? What if you're a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you're worthy of the Justice League? That's exactly what the members of Young Justice - Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis - will [find] out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero."
The animated series will premiere with a one-hour block on November 26 at 7pm ET.
The series will focus on Robin, Superboy, Artemis, Kid Flash, Miss Martian and Aqualad as they attempt to prove that they have what it takes to become the next generation of the Justice League. Sam Register ("Batman: The Brave and the Bold") is the executive producer with Greg Weisman ("The Spectacular Spider-Man") and Brandon Vietti ("The Batman") on board as producers.
The "Young Justice" comic book series debuted in 1998 and ran for 55 issues. Although the concept was created by Todd DeZago and artist Todd Nauck, the majority of the series was written by prolific comic book scribe Peter David.
It's interesting to note that Wonder Girl and Secret — two of the primary characters in the "Young Justice" comic — are missing from the animated lineup. Additionally, Arrowette has apparently been renamed "Artemis."
The animated "Young Justice" also appears to be heavily influenced by the "Teen Titans" relaunch by Geoff Johns, that featured Impluse as Kid Flash and later introduced Miss Martian to the DC Universe.
