A ton of cameos and new characters were revealed in the promo. Let me know if I missed any. Looks like Young Justice is ramping things up into high gear starting this Saturday.
Young Justice Cartoon Network




Young Justice is an American animated television series created by Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti for Cartoon Network. Despite its title, it is not an adaptation of Peter David, Todd Dezago and Todd Nauck's Young Justice comic series, but rather an adaptation of the entire DC Universe with a focus on young superheroes. The series follows the lives of teenaged heroes and sidekicks who are members of a fictional covert operation team called Young Justice. The team is essentially a young counterpart to the celebrity-level famous adult team, the Justice League. The main setting is the fictional universe of Earth-16, during a time period in which superheroes are a relatively recent phenomenon. The series debuted on January 7, 2011 with a two week reairing of the first two episodes, which originally aired as an hour long special on November 26, 2010. Young Justice premiered on September 9, 2011 on Teletoon, in Canada.

Young Justice went on a lengthy mid-season hiatus but resumed new episodes on March 3, 2012.

I absolutley in love with this show and I was on the edge of my seat for the season finale. Also the cliffhanger was phenomenal and cant wait to find out just what the Justice League did during those 16 hrs they were no encountered for during their Starro control. Not to mention the Roy Harper missing an arm was a nice touch to the old DC 52 recton of Roy. Bring on the second season.

Also from Justice League Doom and this show, Vandall Savage would make a perfect villian for a Justice League movie, rather than just jumping into Darkseid. Because with Darkseid, there is automatically going to be some sort of invasion the team have to deal with. Thus making the JL movie seem like an almost ripoff from The Avengers. But with Savage you can have a villian that can manipulate each member of the Justice League and can pose as an unique threat.

TheDetectiveComicRises - 4/24/2012, 9:15 AM
One of best shows on 2day I notice the animation from Young Justice & Justice League Doom is similar I luv it!
Gmoney23 - 4/24/2012, 9:15 AM
So many easter eggs, Tim Drake, Barbara Gordon, Blue Beetle, Wondergirl.

And plus if you guys noticed the boom tubes that the Justice League came from during the season finale, a higher person in command, and now Godfried questioning the motives of the Justice League and creating propaganda.......DARKSEID

Wow! All these new characters? I was thinking Beast Boy and Wonder Girl would be sensible additions for later seasons. Very cool that they're doing it now. Ms Martian's hair looks different, as does Robin's costume. I still need to watch the most recent episode.
BIGBMH - 4/24/2012, 9:17 AM
@Gmoney, I thought that looked like Tim's costume! What's going on?! time travel?! i must watch!
TheDetectiveComicRises - 4/24/2012, 9:20 AM
&TonyChu Great points! I have been wanting Savage on the live action big screen also & most defintely in a Justice League Live Action Film!
thewolfx - 4/24/2012, 9:21 AM
LOBO!!!!!!!!!!
RaleighAntrobus - 4/24/2012, 9:25 AM
Where's Kid Flash, Aqualad, Artemis, and Zantanna? ... Why are they missing?
Galaxy - 4/24/2012, 9:25 AM
I already posted this 2 days ago
elcaballerooscuro92 - 4/24/2012, 9:27 AM
i haven't seen artemis, rocket or zatanna in any of the previews
tazmaniak - 4/24/2012, 9:28 AM
@RaleighAntrobus, not to mention Red Arrow and Rocket.I think it's a plotpoint.You'll notice that 6 members are missing and 6 new heroes are shown in the trailer.Batgirl, Wonder Girl, Blue Beetle, Lagoon Boy, Beast Boy and Bumblebee.

I think something happens to them.Maybe they're captured or go missing.
TheSonOfKrypton - 4/24/2012, 9:28 AM
BEAST BOY!! :D
DCfan89 - 4/24/2012, 9:43 AM
No Aqualad? is the fish headed guy taking his place? and I'm thinking that maybe Wally has taken the original Flash's place maybe? and is Robin the leader now? i don't even know if that was Dick Grayson or Tim. will we be seeing a version of Jason Todd? and i did notice that there was no artemis.
DCfan89 - 4/24/2012, 9:44 AM
and if I'm not mistaken, i think i saw bumblebee
Rong - 4/24/2012, 9:51 AM
Wait, so Robin gets a new outfit? Cool
DrRockso - 4/24/2012, 10:04 AM
Aw man, I'm more of a Ted Korda fan :(
BlackFlash - 4/24/2012, 10:06 AM
Off Topic: can someone tell me how to post a image
Odin - 4/24/2012, 10:12 AM
Could we have Slo-bo on the team? :)
DCfan89 - 4/24/2012, 10:19 AM
i'd like to see what comes of "Match" hopefully a bizarro appearance
BlackFlash - 4/24/2012, 10:26 AM
Nice one SaxoWolf.



SUPERSHADOWBAT - 4/24/2012, 10:33 AM
Excellent show, always look forward to the next episode. This Invasion arc looks huge, hopefully it's in three or four parts. I agree, Vandal Savage in a live JLA film would be awesome. Young Justice seems to be going the route of JL Unlimited, which would be great.
ThaMessenger07 - 4/24/2012, 10:56 AM
Hope Lobo plays a better role....
dnno1 - 4/24/2012, 11:08 AM

Tigorr

I could have sworn that one of those characters looked like Tigorr from the Omega Men. I am pretty sure that I saw a Durlan, Adam Strange, and Beast Boy.
HellBlayzer1981 - 4/24/2012, 11:20 AM
DC Animation has stuff on lock. Not a Wonder Girl fan though.....
ComicBookGoth - 4/24/2012, 11:38 AM
i love wonder girl


Gyasiman - 4/24/2012, 11:44 AM
Bumblebee, Mal Duncon, and maybe captain marvel jr were in that trailer. REALLY looking forward to see why the rest of the team isn't there. I haven't seen kid flash in ANY of the promo pics or trailers for season 2. I have seen Aqualad though.
Dev7 - 4/24/2012, 12:08 PM
This show has really turned into a teeny bopper type show like an animated show made for the MTV crowd.
Action - 4/24/2012, 12:34 PM
I think young justice is the second best comicbook cartoon on television, when it comes to writing. The first would be Green lantern TAS
Action - 4/24/2012, 12:36 PM
@Dev7-The creators of this show said from the beginning that YJ was a show targeted towards teenagers. Go watch awful cartoons like Ultimate spiderman.
AmahlFarouk - 4/24/2012, 12:54 PM
Adam Strange, now that brings back memories...

The preview looked cool, but I've never been able to get past when a main character is made up a just for the show despite the thousands of characters from the source material and this example annoys me more than most because they literally replaced "Aqualad" with "Aqualad" and then showed the original (Garth) in an episode as if just to tell us that they could've went the right way, but decided not to.

Damn. I'm gonna go watch JLU.
Ceejay - 4/24/2012, 1:15 PM
I've u-turned on this show, don't like the fact that they've made kids out of Dick G, Wally W, Roy H and Zattana but the stories lately have been very good and the action pretty damn cool!
Chillrazor - 4/24/2012, 2:14 PM
Batgirl at 0:05
FlixMentallo21 - 4/24/2012, 2:44 PM
Now I wanna know who's voicing Lobo, Wonder Girl, Blue Beetle, Lagoon Boy, the now-older Beast Boy, Adam Strange, the now-older Barbara Gordon, and G. Gordon Godfrey.
Bandrews1 - 4/24/2012, 3:58 PM
I absolutely love this show. There hasn't been one episode that has disappointed me yet. But I've been waiting for the Invasion arc for the longest, and its good to see they'll be introducing new characters, especially Lobo who looks freaking sick.
siggisuperman - 4/24/2012, 4:32 PM
I used to read young justice alot and Lobo was turned into a kid and joined the team it was so BADASS
