He was still on the list of new member candidates, which was my point.

And we all know he'll never tell anyone anything about his little "inkling."

You know, I had been approaching this the way Yojimbo had explained it, but in the broader perspective, knowing that the next season is subtitled "Invasion" and knowing that there is Apocalypian weapons in use on Earth; there might be a drive to bolster numbers with an undertone that the Justice League has a feeling something is about to happen.

Like I suggested in last week's thread, I am not ruling out Martians being involved with Invasion some how. Heck, the Red Martians and Darkseid might be collaborating or something.

I finally got a chance to watch this episode earlier this week. I thought it was great. Like others have already mentioned, I also enjoyed the Justice League meeting more than the Superboy plot. Superboy's story was definitely interesting, but I liked the insights we got with the Justice League members talking and the debates they were having. It was interesting to hear them discussing the issue of age, especially with Miss Martian's actual age in mind, and talking about if Captain Marvel should be kicked out given that he's technically ten years old. It was nice that Batman was in favor of letting him stay and the whole letting Robin fight his parents' murders so that he wouldn't be like Batman. It would have been nice to hear the outcome of their vote at the end though.
The Superboy plot was pretty good too. I liked that even after their first fight, Superboy wanted to free Match. I wasn't expecting Superboy to be a clone of Superman and Lex Luthor. I have a feeling that keeping those patches will cause more trouble for Superboy. They could have a negative effect on his body or more likely, cause him to depend on Lex in the future. I also think that Lex was just trying to manipulate him with saying why Superman wants to avoid him. I doubt that Superman knows about Superboy's human DNA when he wasn't even aware that he had a clone in the first place. That Red Sun bit at the end also makes me think that Superboy could be the mole and not realize it. Overall, it was a great episode. I hope that this week's episode will be fun to watch too.

Yeah, except for the Atom.

Maybe the Atom was there helping out and we just couldn't see him.

Stop Hitting Yourself, Stop Hitting Yourself
IDK why Superman gets so little sympathy, but I'm on Team Superman all the way. It's an all around unfair/messed up situation and I feel for Superboy. But only a naive fool would say to a complete stranger who was cloned without permission from your DNA with the intent to kill and/or replace you.

Not telling the JL or the Team about his field trip to Cadmus is going to bite Superboy in the butt. This only proves that Superman is right in not trusting him.
I thought we'd hit the self hatred sweepstakes with Miss Martian, but Match has her beat by a mile. He simultaneously hates the mere sight of the "S" yet feels naked without it. I guess he's really into protecting Superman's trademarks.
I'm disappointed that Match didn't turn out to be a Thailog in training playing both Lex Luthor and Superboy into releasing him.
I see that Superboy had no learning curve when using the patches. Plus it's implied that he'll never truly BE Superman because he's half human. I can see how very easy it will be for Lex to manipulate SB, he's sooooo needy. He won't even have to use trigger phrases, just dangle the super patches at him and it'll go down exactly as you described it.
SB was a naive fool in thinking that Match could be reasoned with especially when he attacks everything with an "S" like a bull seeing red. He can never be released. Of course he will be back.
I too am disappointed in both the Watchtower (looks like a rock with windows in space) and Mt Justice. I can't believe Zatanna is okay living there- it's got no windows, which is fine for hiding Supes' clone, the Martian, and the Robot. Good thing she's not claustrophobic.
I liked the JL's membership meeting. I was disappointed that John Stewart didn't speak up when Superman and Wonder Woman nominated Icon & Rocket. I don't believe for a second that Bats knew that Captain Marvel was 10 years old. He's such a know it all he can't stand for anybody to think they've gotten the better of the almighty Batman. I'm glad Wonder Woman called him out on his Kony 2012 ways. It's good to see that Zatara is influencing Dr. Fate, it must stink to be trapped in there all alone- not even Kent Nelson to talk to.
Thanksgiving is a rotten day to have a meeting- I know Red, the Hawks, Martian Manhunter, and Wonder Woman don't celebrate, but The Kents, Alfred, The Wests, M'gann, & Zatanna would've liked everyone home. Though Robin's probably used to it.
Superman thinking Captain Marvel is from Krypton is probably a reference to the lawsuit DC filed against his original comics company about copyright infringment. Plus I think it's sweet that he sees CM and Icon as contemporaries.
I find it very curious that Speedy's uncle works at Cadmus. Which raises several questions:
Why is Green Arrow raising his nephew? Why couldn't Roy live with him? Does Roy live with him currently?
How would "Independence Day" have gone if Speedy had gone with Robin, Kid Flash, and Aqualad to Cadmus?
If Guardian works for Cadmus/Lex Luthor and Speedy is related to him that makes him no better than Artemis, so he should really get off his high horse. And doesn't this make him a little suspicious too? Me thinks he doth protest too much.

I disagree. I consider an original/clone relationship more akin to a parent/child relationship because the clone/child is spawned from the original/parent. Now, I'm not saying Supes has any parental responsibility towards Conner. It's just that the sibling analogy doesn't work for me when it comes to clones.

Or that Batman has known them the longest.
