Though the Young Justice: Outsiders panel is still two days away at SDCC, it doesn't mean we have to wait till that day. Today, two new little bits of the show came into the light. The first is this nifty display they have at the convention floor (as posted by series showrunner/co-creator Greg Weisman):
My friend @thomzahler snapped this pic of the DC Booth while setting up his own booth at #SDCC2018. I think this means we made it to the bigs, gang. @brandonvietti @phil_Bourassa @troybakerva @stephylems pic.twitter.com/px5kIbCYDi— Greg Weisman (@Greg_Weisman) July 18, 2018
Though it was already a given that Darkseid would be showing up this season given Season 2's cliffhanger. It'll be curious how much a role Vandal Savage will still have in the show given the voice for the role Miguel Ferrer tragically passed away last year. The other juicier bit of news today is pictures from a TV program for the convention have shown up online with a few character profiles that even features new art.
So for those of us who aren't able to attend the con, here are the two pages:
As for the descriptions if you can't read it. The new season will have the same amount of episodes as season 1 with twenty-six! The Outsiders portion will have some homages to the original Mike Barr and Jim Aparo run on the comic (along with some New Teen Titans from that era too apparently. Wait, does that mean another traitor story? Start the betting pool!). Lex Luthor will now be UN Secretary.
As for character details, we learn that the multi-armed fellow in that Outsiders group picture from not too long ago is indeed Forager.
We generally have a very serious tone; it's about secrets, lies, and double-crosses. So it's fun to be able to introduce a character with a certain charm." Forager "is pretty cute, and we don't do cute a lot."
On Thirteen (aka Traci-13):
She's a fun character who has inherited some natural "mystical" ability." She's being mentored by Zatanna.
And finally Spoiler (aka Stephanie Brown):
Doesn't have special powers, she's a skilled martial artist.
Again, the YJ: Outsiders panel will be on Friday at 10 am (PST) in Room 6DE.
