    Nice! I like that we are getting to sides to the story, Kilowog as helping one of the clans while Hal is finding out what's going on with the other.

    Edit: Oh boy! these people survive on the crystals and Kilowog is eating it.

    Thanks for the heads up! I don't know where my head was at.

    Edit: Well glad to see that Roy is at least trying to make up for his betray even with the league after him. Savages plans then, by which I mean this was his plot to get everyone against Roy.

    Batman actually had me going for a bit, I'm glad they didn't go with the League already knowing Roy was the mole as the real story.

    The light knows what they are doing and can't be tricked that easily.

    Kid Flash: "I should've done this a long time ago."

    Artemis: "No kidding."

    Artemis took the words out of my mouth.:)

    I was thinking Red Arrow would be a clone of Guardian. I did not expect there to be another Roy Harper.

    Whoo so good! I was worried they'd get too exposition heavy (because there was a LOT) but pretty much everything else was action. It was a bit too easy, frankly... but if this was just one stepping stone of many... man, Earth is SCREWED.

    The sort of Darwinist scheme that the Light was running with makes sense. I mean, most of those characters are, in their own ways, very "humanist." Well, not Ra's - he's sort of anti-humanist - but the rest definitely think of humanity as something being held back by do-gooders. THEY are the prime of the species. They deserve it.

    Red Arrow being a clone was pretty obvious, I think, but I didn't expect to see Speedy (sans arm!) at the end. I could easily see him becoming Arsenal and co-existing with Red Arrow. I mean, why not, eh?

    If I was disappointed by anything, it was the large swath of Justice Leaguers that didn't get to do much. It's fine with Atom and Captain Marvel and all that, but Wonder Woman in a bubble the whole time? A shame, really. But the action that did come out: Superboy vs. Superman, Batman vs. Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Artemis against their mentors... well done scenes. I like that they explained why the League wasn't at their peak... and even then, Batman was outclassing his protégé by far. Until the Fastball Special, at least.

    And a cute ending. Everyone kisses (Zatanna grabbing Robin was the cutest, I think, even if it doesn't really go anywhere), Superman finally talks to his clone, Red Tornado lays on the floor without any limbs... picture perfect finale! I'm just not sure how the repercussions will be - I expected a LOT more fallout from this than we seemed to get. I mean, at least a public distrust of the League for being captured so easily.

    But I suppose we'll see what those 16 hours (another mention of 16 as that special number...) mean. Probably the floodgates for the invasion. Next week is HYPE.

    OH yeah, my girl is finally showing up. I was really spilt on if I wanted it to be Donna or Cassie, but I"m glad that one of them is finally joining Diana. Plus it kinda makes sense to have Cassie on Young Justice while Donna is on Super Best Friends Forever.

    I wish the toyline wasn't dying out because I really love the designs that they are using in Young Justice for all of the Heroes and Villains, plus I really wanted a Cassie Wonder Girl figure.

    This was an incredible episode, lots of great action and a good amount of those "little moments" that mean so much to the over all series. I loved the Wonder Woman in a bubble, because Diana is as strong as Superman and is one of if not the best fighter in most DC realities so it makes since that she'd be the hardest to take down. Although I wonder if there was a cut scene where the entire team had to take her own or if they had to wait for more of the actual Justice League members to come to and give them a hand in curing Wonder Woman.

    I can't wait to see how they handle the Roy/Speedy/ Red Arrow storyline. This show is one of the best shows in a long time and I love it.

    Now that this episode has aired, I can now ask people to re-watch "Agendas" and take a close look at what are floating in those tubes in the chamber where Superboy found and first battled Match. Very interesting...

    Not just that.

    Watch the "broken arrow" scene in "Targets". Notice anything you haven't noticed before?
