1st Anniversary: Young Justice #5 Review
Wow it's been a year since I started this blog already. So let us look back and reflect. The end of Flashpoint ushered in the New DC Universe. Which gave us some good comics, some bad comics, and some amazing comics. After 4 or so years of build up The Avengers was finally released, and was great. Finally Ian Flynn's work on STH has caused mixed reactions from fans, but overall it's been pretty good. Except for Sonic Genesis. That sucked.
Anyway what better way to celebrate my first year as a reviewer then to review an issue of Young Justice. Some of you may remember my very first comic I review was of a Young Justice comic so let's take a look. The comic starts with Wally West (Kid Flash) watching TV, and not being able find anything to watch. He notices M'gann(Miss Martian), and starts to flirt with her. He asks her to go camping, and she's says okay. While he's gone to get supplies, she invites the rest of the team. Much to Wally's aggravation.
While there Robin suggest that they should tell some story's. Aqualad and Wally both tell the team how they got started being heroes. M'gann asks Robin how he got started but Wally points out that Batman won't even let him tell them his real name. He then says that they would probably get a better story from Superboy.
M'gann then informs him that she already knows how he got started since they told her that Superboy was a clone of Superman that Kid Flash, Aqualad, and Robin saved from Cadmus. She then asks Superboy if he can remember anything before they rescued him, and the comic ends with him telling her that all he remembers was that he was meant to destroy Superman.
This comic isn't that bad but it has some problems. First of all like JLU #7 and Sonic X #15 this comic try's to emulate the art style of the show but it fails. Plus there isn't really a story, only an excuse to get some origins. However the coloring is pretty good, and we have good character development. Overall not that bad.
So Year One is over. Let's see what Year Two holds.
