Wally: “So my cousin got arrested the other day.”

M'gann, barely a day after the mission undercover in Belle Rev: *leans back in chair with an unlit cigar* “Arrested, eh? Yeah, I remember my time in the slammer. It changes ya man, it changes ya. Days run together, you’re fighting for everything you own, and boy oh boy on ice cream day, you’d best be prepared for some trouble. I’m lucky I got out of there alive, man. After a few years, that’s about as close to home as you’ve got.”

“M'gann you were in there for literally two days.”

“YOU DARE TO SASS ME?? I’LL HAVE YOU KNOW THAT BIG ROXANE TAUGHT ME HOW TO FASHION A SHIV, DON’T TEST ME MAN” *pulls out butter knife*

I didn’t forget about art raffles!! 

I’m so sorry it’s late @thelittleredheadedmusician !! But here it is, I know you asked for a doodle page of the characters but I felt bad that it was taking so long that I took the doodles and made them full sized! I hope that’s okay.

The reason why Artemis is Tigress is because I’m very salty that we don’t get to see her in that costume in season 3 and Wally is just chilling eating popcorn while he watches the fandom cry over not seeing him in season 3. :)))))))

Buckle up because I have quite a few things to say about this here martian.

So I’m gonna start at season one.

One thing I really appreciated was how she and Artemis automatically got along, even though Artemis kinda flirted with superboy and M'gann got jealous. She was still mature about it and I was so relieved that she wasn’t petty about that.

I didn’t actually like her much until the white martian reveal. I freaking loved that. The way she latched on to the character of Megan and just became her was creepy but also kind of relatable? Like I myself have a lot of identity issues and if I could shapeshift I would probably do some shit like that. She had this idea of what a normal, likable earth girl is, and she is so afraid of being cast out and oppressed again because of being a white martian that she completely morphs into that false self and it feels like she kind of loses her own identity in doing so. I wish that plot line got a little more focus actually, I wanted more!


Yes, she was abusive. Even in season one. She named superboy after Megan’s love interest and that kind of felt like she was trying to mold him into something without him even knowing it. He was only a few months old when they started dating, and their differences in maturity and experience were never even addressed, which would have been nice.

Then you get to season two, and it all just totally spirals. She straight up abuses her power not only with her enemies, but with Connor, too, when she messed with his head to try to keep him from being mad at her. Plus she totally used La'gaan to make herself feel better and that’s not cool.

It’s unfortunate that she was written that way, because I think there’s so much that could be done with her character as far as her presentation and how she sees herself. At the same time, I think it’s important. There’s something to be said in that abusers are almost always portrayed as monsters: scary/creepy men usually. So it goes to show that even someone who seems otherwise really sweet and innocent (or portrays themselves that way) can be just as bad. Abuse is almost never so obvious.

Young Justice could have a great freakin setup for the Outlaws if they brought Jason back, took one of the Roys (there’s two! one for dick to keep! one for jay to have! batboys love roys!), and had M'gann be removed from the team for abusing her powers, then join the Outlaws for her redemption story.

like listen, I would love to see M'gann in an antihero position while she grapples with her mistakes and she would make the Outlaws dynamic so interesting and listen listen listen

One of my absolute favorite things about Young Justice is the mind link. Seriously, just imagine all of the crazy stuff the team can do when they can actually read each other’s minds during a mission:  

- Infinite Rickrolls 
- Wally making an obvious effort to not call Robin “Dick” when they’re linked and getting really frustrated   
- Being spoiled about Christmas presents and surprise parties 
- When one member gets hurt everyone feels it 
- Dick and Wally trying to see how loud they can scream in their minds until Kaldur starts yelling at them  
- Something blows up and everyone simultaneously goes “same" 
- Everyone cringing when Conner and M'gann have really loud dirty thoughts about each other 
- Hearing Kaldur mentally sigh at least fifteen times a mission 
- When one person has a song stuck in their head, everyone gets the song in their head  
- This of course leads to the entire team becoming a silent choir as they all mentally belt out Let It Go together while beating up bad guys 
- When Raquel first joined, they learned that ”??????“ makes an actual sound in ones head 
- Zatanna thinking backwards and giving everyone a headache 
- They even linked up Wolf once just to see what it was like and they heard weird stuff like “Boy? Boy is bird?? He is puppy??? Need cuddles??? Must protect!!!” “Superboy!💗💗💗💗 Human! Best human! Best human in whole world!” “I good boy?? Treats????” “BANE BAD. KILL BANE. HE HURT BABIES?!?!?! BITE. BITE. BITE!!! I TREATS??? I DID GOOD??????” It was definitely a learning experience about how dogs work, and they also learned about how Wolf sees Robin as a small puppy in need of protection, so that was fun to tease him about.  
- Conner screams even in his mind 
- There is no privacy whatsoever, so that’s how the team learned things about each other that they will definitely regret knowing 
- Artemis and Wally flirting all the time just to make everyone uncomfortable
- Falling asleep on stakeouts leads to seeing each other’s dreams and even interacting in them
- Once Wally had a nightmare about his father and everyone saw it, though Wally had no idea and was confused when they spent the rest of the week being really nice to him
- On really traumatic missions, sometimes one member will get flashbacks and all of them see it too  
- Dick singing Bohemian Rhapsody for five hours straight 
- The team learning that M'gann curses like a sailor in her head  
- Kaldur mentally goes “WTF” so many times they lost count 
- Silently judging everyone together 

I just really love the mind link concept okay? 

Young Justice team when asked what they think about Batman

Kaldur: “He is a wise and trustworthy leader. I respect him highly and never doubt his decisions." 

Conner: "Guy’s a jerk." 

M'gann: "Batman? He scares me. He’s always glaring silently as if planning to kill us or something. Once I tried reading his mind, but all I heard was echoes. It’s creepy." 

Wally: "Pfft, Bats? Please, the guy’s a total pushover. Once I was over their place and Robin and I made a blanket fort in the Batcave, and you know what Batman did? He just walked out of there and worked somewhere else. He’s probably nicer than my own parents." 

Artemis: "Literally the only person in the universe I don’t want to mess with, which says a lot cuz I’ll fight anyone." 

Robin: "B and I are going out for ice cream after patrol.” :)
