The Latest DC Animation

So, there's another new cartoon coming this fall based on a DC Comic title. The latest entry in the DC animated pantheon is...Young Justice.

Young Justice was a group of teen superheroes that existed in the late-90s/early-00s. It was kind of created to fill the void left by the Teen Titans, because they all grew up and became simply "The Titans." The group was disbanded with the bulk of them being mentored by the Titans to become the new Teen Titans.

As you can see, the line-up in our superhero group is Superboy, Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad (who has arbitrarily been made African American to add racial diversity), Miss Martian, and Artemis, who from what I gather online is based on the current Speedy.

The 'toon premieres on the Cartoon Network this fall. Oh, and good news for a super-geek like me, the creator/showrunner is Greg Weisman, who was the creator/showrunner of Disney's cult classic 'toon, Gargoyles.

And speaking of DC animation, here's the latest trailer for the next DTV animated film, Batman: Under the Red Hood.
