Young Justice: Episode Reviews

Season 2 - Episode 19: "Summit"

Reviewed by: Isaac Frisbie

5Rating - 5 (out of 5): If you like awesomeness, watch this episode. If you like epic battles, watch this episode. If you like treachery and deceit, watch this episode. If you like comics, watch this episode.

By all means tell your friends and family about this show. It has become a pinnacle for DC and its light seems to be ending soon. Perhaps our voices could be used to petition Cartoon Network to renew this show or to DC to ask them to find someone else that would continue to carry it.

This show combines great character arcs with well strung together (overall) story plots.

What we saw in this is the beginning of the culmination of this season. The Reach have seen the deceit of the Light and are ready to destroy the Earth by the end of the episode. I suppose it was inevitable that Black Beetle was going to get fed up with the Ambassador and eventually take over.

I absolutely adored the chaos that ensued once full battle took place between all the groups, and when the young heroes all joined in it was glorious. It seemed they had all angles accounted for (minus a few getaways like Savage). I was glad to see the whole group fighting together. Lagoon Boy put his differences aside to rescue M'Gann. Beast Boy beat the snot out of Monsieur Mallah. It was a Royal Rumble that hearkened back to the days of WWF's glory days.

I actually have no complaints, other than some of the Justice League (Captain Marvel, etc...) being pummeled by Savage somehow and thrown to the Watchtower as the War World takes off.

This is clearly the beginning of this fight and I'm sitting on the edge of my seat for the next episode!
