FAN OPINIONS: Justice League TAS vs. Young Justice
Do the sidekicks surpass their teachers? Now that we've all seen both animated series, which do you, the fans, think is the better animated series: Justice League or Young Justice?
The Justice League series premiere "Secret Origins Pt. 1" first aired November 17, 2001. It was extremely well recieved by fans after the huge success of Batman The Animated Series, Superman The Animated Series, and Batman Beyond. It focused on the 7 core members of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern John Stewart, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkgirl. It was also the first show by the creative team to have two-parter episodes for each episode. The hour-long episode formate made for better stories and more screen time for each of the characters. This was a breakthrough show for fans and creators alike as it showed us a true interpretation of our favorite DC Comics superhero team, without the campiness that we were all given with "Super Friends".
Young Justice first premiered with its hour-long series premiere, "Independence Day", on November 26, 2010. The regular running scheduled programming of the series didn't air until January 7, 2011. Since that time, there have been 18 episodes, with a promised 26 episode run in the first season, along with a promised second season the following year. The team is comprised of 6 core members including Superboy, Robin (Dick Grayson), Kid Flash (Walley West), Aqualad (Kaldur'ahm), Miss Martian, and Artemis. The series is also comprised of constant cameo appearances of other famous DC Comics heroes including Batman, Superman, Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, Green Arrow, Captain Marvel, Red Tornado, Red Arrow, and countless others. The series has seemed to focus on a team that operates more in the covert area of heroics, while the JLA is still the prime "media mogul" superhero team. The show also focuses on how these young heroes grow and deal with being in the shadows of the world's greatest heroes, while simultaniously dealing with teen issues and the strains of working together.
The question that I am posing to all of you fans out there is which animated series do you think is better as far as story, character design, animation, voice cast, action, etc...: Justice League or Young Justice?
