Metallo? So, it looks like Merlyn's not the only villain making a YJ debut in this comic. I should've guessed he was coming considering the emphasis on LexCorp robotics. I wonder if Mercy's enhancements will have a link to him.

Also, I love that the cover is a callback to the cover in Young Justice (2011) #24, the one with Batgirl, Match, and Plastic Man. They're both also the fifth issues of a six-issue story arc.

I wonder what's her legal status. Has Bruce taken her in as a ward or foster child?

I guess it would be awkward to stick around on the Team with your ex and her boyfriend, even if he was seemingly cool about it. I find it funny that Mal wanted to be a hero so bad in season 2, then quit in a relatively short amount of time.

I'd guess the latter like with Dick Grayson.

Guess this was a case of the grass always looks greener and it wasn't exactly what Mal was dreaming about so he called it quits.

That is a change from the comics. Cass was eventually officially adopted but she mostly lived with Babs in Oracle's Clocktower...which I forget if they've established :confused:.
So, was, like...nobody seeing Robin during the Batman Inc. era? Is he the only member with a secret identity other than maybe Stargirl :sweat:?
All pretty believable reasons :).

I don't think we know whether Tim's parents are alive, come to think of it.

Nope, she works from her apartment.

We do not.

Do we know yet when Cyborg joined the Justice League? I would imagine that he joined at the end of Team Year Nine or the beginning of Team Year Ten, but it'd be nice to nail it down. The reason I'm interested is because he had the most rapid ascension in terms of designations (G-designation, then B-designation, then D-designation, then unlettered designation), owing to the unique circumstances of when he debuted as a hero.

I'm also wondering if we know whether Miss Martian was on the Team in season 4? I think she still had her B-05 designation but who's to say she was an active member?

8/24: No, we don't know the exact point yet.

That's kinda splitting hairs... she was on leave for her wedding so yeah for three months at the least, she would have been on leave from the Team but things didn't go as planned. Additionally when she was preparing to leave M'arzz/the flight over, her dialogue seemed to verify she was still on the Team but doing things like settling Conner's affairs. But I'm sure post-September 16th, Team Year Ten, she continued to be on leave for the honeymoon then went back to active duty. Same with Conner and the Outsiders as we saw in issue #1 of Targets implicitly (which is 2 months later in November).

8/25: Chris Jones is drawing Miss Martian flying while phasing.

(Also should it be Mrs. Martian now, lol)

I noticed something intriguing. In Christopher Jones's provisional art for the Marvel Family (which he designed and drew years ago), Sergeant Marvel has one gold bracelet/gauntlet on either hand, while Lieutenant Marvel has two and Captain Marvel has three. This appears to reflect their rankings. But when we see Sergeant Marvel in "Teg Ydaer!", she has two bracelets on either hand. I wonder if this is a mistake/goof, or a hint about something?

"Why do jerks think everyone wants to see their stupid name?"

Oh boy, this is going to be a rough episode... And we've barely even reached the main plot. Oof, more like a rough season. I hope I get through this pain quickly.
I've just read the real reason they killed off Maude Flanders... Wow. I thought The Simpsons couldn't go any lower, but this is a new level of appalling. South Park has been spiteful before, even towards the audience, but it's rarely towards their own staff.
FORUM ANNOUNCEMENT: Please stop getting information from 4chan! It’s become a cesspool for leaked material that is heavy on spoilers!
By the way, why exactly Cartoon Network ignores the existence of the Powerpuff Girls anime titled "Powerpuff Girls Z"?
Alright, I have started watching the certain Powerpuff Girls anime in Japanese. With English subtitles. That's better.
