There will be no Young Justice review from me.

Tonight I was planning to watch Young Justice and get around to my Late to the Party review (as well as read the reviews by friends I've been putting off) but it was too fucking boring. I made it about 7 1/2 minutes into the pilot. The fight scenes were dull as dirt, the villains were uninteresting, the mystery was unable to overcome the overwhelming spirit of banality that welled up from the script. None of the characters had the charm or energy of their four-color counterparts. Robin was dull with bad hair, Kid Flash was dull and stupid, Aqualad was dull and brooding, and Speedy was an asshole who made me wonder why the fuck they didn't just go with Mia.

And I don't even like Mia.

Every second spent with that on my television screen seemed like a waste of my life, so instead I've decided to post the following picture of myself and an old acquaintance:

I forget which one I am.

Image scanned from Changeling: The Dreaming Second Edition (ETA: Artist is Rebecca Guay, who also did the beautiful Green Lantern: 1001 Emerald Nights Elseworlds--Thanks for the ID, Rachel!) which is full-color, fun to play, and has fucking gorgeous art.


  1. My, that IS pretty. Oh, and yes, Speedy was a jerk.

  2. I think they had Roy defect to set up Mia's upcoming arrival. They were showing a girl archer in the TV ads, so that could be her. Or Cissie.

    Re: Kid Flash - It seemed like both Flash and Kid Flash were Wally at different ages.

  3. Always nice to see another C:tD fan! (Although I think I liked 1st Ed. better: the Bunks were hilarious and Thomas the Rhymer's messy desk -- or was it David's? -- in the intro looked awfully like mine.)
