Since others aren't mentioning it, DC Nation had one other interstitial clip to show.

Basically had a professional archer prove Green Arrow's Boxing Glove arrow DOES work in the real world.

Clever use of Captain Marvel in that YJ episode.

I did like that he figured that out early in the episode. I hate watching tv shows where the audience knows the obvious solution to a problem, but the characters are too dumb to sort it out.

It sucks that they're repeating the GL pilot.

YJ was pretty fun, I like when the JLA shows up. I'd have liked for them to show more of Zatanna and Zatara before they did this. I'm glad Captain Marvel got more time.

The Plastic Man short was really fun.

It's interesting to me that they're, in part, using YJ as an excuse to cameo or outright guest star a lot of other DC characters.

Not a surprise, since they said from the beginning to expect exactly that. I just didn't think we'd be seeing so much of DC other heroes.

I wonder if they have plans for any new YJ members aside from Zee. Got a fairly large pool of characters as it is, but it might be fun to see some other young heroes guest star. Wonder if Static is a part of the universe in this show.

And as far as them re-airing the GL pilot again, they did the exact same thing with Young Justice when it started. showed the pilot in november, and then reaired it when they actually started the show

They could throw Arisia in there and have a teenaged "big 7" lineup.

Just got done with the second part of the GL TAS premiere episode, fun little DC Nation Batarang demonstration! The Teen Titans short was very funny and makes me miss that show that much more. Beating Dr Light with Tofu :lol:

Getting ready to watch Young Justice now!

Team shows that focus on one character for an episode can be boring, but the Wally episode today was very well written.

Absolutely amazing episode of Young Justice today, probably one of my favorites of the short series so far. Being a huge fan of Wally West as Flash or Kid Flash it was great to see the entire episode dedicated to him and really seeing him shine and grow as a character. Nice use of Vandall Savage and Count Vertigo as the villians as well, we don't see enough of guys like that in the comics.

To echo what many have said before when DC decided to do their reboot or whatever they should have just followed the template of this show because it is just freaking amazing from top to bottom. The character designs are new and fresh takes on certain characters but still maintain the classic old school looks on others and they just look outstanding. The characters actions and well character are being portrayed in ways that I love and would love to see in the DC Comics I am reading. Young Justice Animate Universe is so much greater than anything DC Comics is currently publishing right now.

I still don't know what to make of that Superman short.

That thing was just odd.

That I just didn't care for. I thought it was pretty stupid and not funny at all.

I don't know, the Aqualad and Superboy episodes previously were pretty good too. I really liked that small glimpse at Wally's home life.

Had that little girl shown up before? I can't help but think someone trying to assassinate her seemed familiar. :smt102

Hope Kid Flash gets another shot at Vandal Savage. I just hope he shows up again.
