so. what do you think of young justice?
Story time, folks.
Way back in 2012, when I was a high school student, young and carefree, my friends invited me to see Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. It had just hit the theaters.
Now I didn’t know anything about Batman back then– I hadn’t seen the other movies, and I didn’t really want to– but you don’t just say “no” to your squad. So I went. On the walk to the theater, my buddy gave my the rundown on the first two films and mentioned that she hoped a Robin would appear in the last installment.
“A Robin?” I asked her.
“I think there’s lots of them,” she said. “At least three.”
She’d been watching a TV show, she explained, that had two of them. And there was another, in between them, that had died.
“A robin died??” (I was shocked.)
“Yes,” she told me, and she promised she would show me that TV show the next time I was at her place. My house didn’t have television.
I enjoyed the movie, and a few weeks later, I went to my friend’s house for her birthday party. Around eleven, we settled in for the night– my friend remembered her promise and turned on that tv show, which I learned was called Young Justice.
Six hours later, I was still watching, clicking through episodes as my friends dropped off to sleep one by one. I was fascinated. I was transported. I had to know more.
And well, here I am.
I love Young Justice.
