‘Young Justice’ – S02E15 – “War”

Young Justice_War

For a show that is into it’s final six episodes (I think) I sure hope it starts to gain some focus. I find myself more excited for Green Lantern: The Animated Series these days.

Here’s how “War” is described:

A conqueror from another world becomes a wild card in an intergalactic game of supremacy — placing planet Earth square in the jackpot.

I look forward to your thoughts, opinions, gripes, live-blogging, etc.


  1. My feelings exactly. The show continues to be great, but I think season 1 worked better because of the smaller group and more focused storyline.

  2. Aw, if it remained focused on a small group people would say “They need to add more characters.”

  3. Did anyone with Dish Network have the same problem as me? My dvr recorded the show but inexplicably stopped despite having about 20 minutes left in the show.

  4. This is the first YJ episode I have been able to catch in a while, and I liked it a great deal.

    Sorry to see this series go.

    I don’t want to give a spoiler, but the ending was a big surprise for me. Not totally unexpected when I saw Black Beetle with The Reach, but it was still a surprise and a great ending.

    Off to read up on the various colored Beetles.

  5. I thought this episode was great, one of this rare times when GL and YJ were on par with each other (I love both shows, but most weekends I can say “oh, YJ had a better story today” etc). I was glad to finally see what’s happening with the Justice League out is space, did anybody else notice the Krolotayins in the audience watching the trial? I was kinda hoping the YJ team could work out a deal with Mongol to “force” the Reach off-planet, they get rid of the Reach and Mongol is free to conquer the universe (not really). The only thing that irked me about this episode was Arsenal’s freakout, I get why it happened but I wish he had gone about it in a different way.

  6. I liked it but I’m amazed at how easily manipulated the adult league has been.

    • Yes, you’ve got to brush some stuff under the rug to continue the premise that an emo group of Earth’s youngest heroes are somehow in charge of defending it, lol. At least it was nice to see our heroes on Rimbor, to see them still fighting for their innocence. But yeah, seeing Aquaman suffer the indignity of not only being left out of the Rimbor group (guess Vandal Savage has no respect for Atlanteans?) but also seeing him having to stand by utterly mute while Nightwing defends the planet – and seeing Captain Atom also seemingly take orders from Nightwing – it’s all kind of weird. But the title of the show is “Young Justice,” so…

      I really liked this episode, actually; I don’t think this show has lost any focus at all. We’re in the middle of a story arc involving The Reach controlling Earth, and this episode furthered that story. I have no problem leaving catatonic Kalderr and Miss Martian on the backburner for a couple episodes.

      And I *loved* the scenes of Mal and Bumblebee bickering as they helped take down Warworld, LOL. So funny.

  7. I take back much of what I said last week about the futures of YJ and GL:TAS. This week’s episodes bode well for wrapping up their respective stories within the time frame remaining. I’m breathing a little more easy.

    …Still not happy about the cancellations.

  8. Great episode! Mongul is a badass in pretty much every iteration, and the advancement in the Reach’s plans in just the shot in the arm this storyline needed, imo.

  9. I enjoyed the episode and the end of the show was great, i think a big battle is coming and we are going to start getting some pay off on the storyline.

  10. Everytime I watch an episode I wonder why we these writers are not on Teen Titans right now. All the good characterization and quality storytelling is what is missing on Scott Lobdells current Teen Titans run.
