Young Justice #1




Back in October, DC announced their new, teen focused Wonder Line of comics.  These books would be overseen by Brian Michael Bendis as he has been known for being able to capture and make popular teens in comics with his run on Miles Morales: Spiderman and IronHeart!

Young Justice opens with a discussion of the 7 Crisses by a group of space fairing aliens called the Gemworld and how these Crisis' have become a threat to their world and Earth must be dealt with.



Back on Earth, we get the slow introduction to the team.  First up Jenny Hex, on her way to Metropolis from Texas and she is the first to encounter the police and the Gemworld when they attack.  Next up, Tim Drake as Robin as the attack begins in earnest and this Robin is clearly going to be the leader of this group of Young Justice.  Next up, Wonder Girl, but not the Donna Troy version.  She tells Robin she is not about this hero life right now, but eventually she does make her way into the battle.  We also get Impulse making his way into the book and team, along with Teen Lantern.





The battle culminates with our heroes of Young Justice running off Gemworld as they go back into their teleporter and Young Justice follows them and get sucked into different portals.  Without spoiling too much, each member Robin and Impulse are reunited with someone from their pasts.

Overall, I thought this book was ok.  It was a little uneven and the dialogue felt a bit forced; like a middle age man trying write dialogue for teenagers.  And then it hit me:  This book is not necessarily written for me; its written for a younger audience and when viewing it from that lens, I understand it a bit more.  This is a great, out of continuity book for a new reader to pick up and read.  Its fun, it has action, and is drawn beautifully. 

Even tho its not my cup of tea, I will still finish out the first story arc because I am interested in seeing how the team comes together.  Solid, but not spectacular issue from Bendis.

  2. I wish to show some appreciation to you just for bailing me out of this challenge. Right after browsing through the internet and finding principles which were not beneficial, I believed my life was over. Existing minus the strategies to the difficulties you have fixed through your posting is a crucial case, and the ones that would have badly affected my career if I hadn’t discovered your website. Your know-how and kindness in taking care of the whole lot was helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t encountered such a stuff like this. I can at this moment look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for the skilled and amazing guide. I won’t hesitate to endorse your blog post to anyone who would need recommendations about this matter. https://royalcbd.com/cbd-legal-status/
