Young Justice is a Cartoon Network animated series that focuses on the adventures of teenaged superheroes in the DC Universe. Young Justice's characters fight evil while trying to prove that they're more than just sidekicks in the shadow of their more famous mentors in the Justice League. Young Justice is not directly tied to current DC Universe comics continuity, but is instead set in a world where superheroes are still a new phenomenon. Young Justice's core of characters includes heroic proteges Aqualad, Superboy, Robin, Kid Flash, Speedy, and Miss Martian, gathered together to form a covert action team as a complement to the more publicly visible Justice League. Zatanna, Artemis, and Rocket also joined the team over the course of the first season, which ran for 26 episodes. The first season revolved around a struggle between Young Justice and a villainous secret society called the Light, which included such major villains as Vandal Savage, Lex Luthor, Ra's al Ghul, and the Brain. The second season of the series, titled Young Justice: Invasion, was set five years after the first series and pitted the team of young heroes against an invasion by the alien Kroloteans, a secretive race that has infiltrated Earth. The team has changed somewhat in the intervening years, with the departure of Speedy, Aqualad, Zatanna, Artemis, and Rocket and the addition of several younger heroes, including Blue Beetle, Beast Boy, Batgirl, Wonder Girl, Lagoon Boy, and a new Robin. It has not yet been announced whether there will be a third season of Young Justice, although the show's creators say they are ready to produce one if Cartoon Network requests it.
