A fantastic six-minute preview for DC Comics’ newest animated series “Young Justice” has hit the net. Unfortunately it isn’t anything new. It’s the same footage that was shown at New York Comic-Con (insert sad face). The series will feature Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis.
The animated series will premiere with a one-hour block on November 26 at 7pm ET and essentially compete against Marvel’s “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.”
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.
