Young Justice: Episode Reviews
Season 2 - Episode 3: "Alienated"Reviewed by: Isaac Frisbie
Rating - 5 (out of 5): Bibbo! He's a character I never get sick of seeing, so I was very pleased to see him in this episode. It was also nice to see two of the new team members in the beginning, Bumblebee and Blue Beetle. I hope to see more of each of them in the future especially since I don't know much about Bumblebee. Other than she stole her name from a beloved Transformer.
I like the darkness that the characters are delving into; it gives them more depth in my opinion. No longer is Miss Martian the happy go lucky Young Justice member. She is now a much more emotionally troubled girl who has allowed her dark side to surface and she mentally crushes those that she can get information from. She shows no remorse for her actions. What happened to the bubbly mascot of the team we knew and loved from Season 1? Time will tell I suppose. When Superboy doesn't approve of your methods of interrogation, something is clearly wrong.
Kaldur is now a bad guy? I wondered if he would find out who his real father was (sorry Darth it wasn't in the cards for you, buddy) and what his reaction would be. This was really the main reason I gave this episode a 5. I loved Kaldur's character from season 1 and had no idea where he went. He's a bad guy now! Well, for now, at least. I doubt he'll stay bad. Then again if he did I think that would make for some really interesting stories.
I like how the Justice League story is going and hope the team can find restitution for what they did. Or what Vandal Savage made them do.
I'm hoping to see more of the Rann storyline and almost wish they would focus a few episodes on just them and characters involved in the current story.
They are slowly revealing what is going on with each of the new characters and what happened to the old team. I really hope Wally is still around. He was probably my favorite.
