Young Justice on Blu-ray From Warner Archive
August 6, 2014

The first season of Young Justice, 26 episodes on two Blu-ray discs, will be available from Warner Archive next week, on August 12. (Or you can get it from Amazon at a slightly higher cost.)

Young Justice Season 1

No extras, it appears, but fans of the show (which only ran two seasons) might appreciate having the full season instead of on four separate DVD volumes. (I’ve talked about the first three: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3.) I wasn’t a fan because I wanted to see more female heroes sooner, and I wasn’t thrilled with co-creator/writer Greg Weisman’s response on the subject.

The show wasn’t given a chance to return to finish up its last storyline, but at the San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that Young Justice will be appearing in an upcoming Teen Titans Go! episode. Here’s the show description:

In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over — to peers, parents, teachers, mentors, and ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? How much harder will it be to prove yourself in a world of super powers, super villains, and super secrets? Are you ready to come of age in such a world? Are you ready for life or death rites of passage? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice — Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian, and Artemis — will find out … whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero.

My boys love this show! I already have the first season (on 5 discs–4 cases) so while I would appreciate the streamlined edition, I think I’ll hold off.

The disparity between male and female super heroes improves greatly as the season progresses and is even better in the second season, but I agree it takes a looong while for it to become evident it won’t be just a boys club.

As for me, I feel the show is pretty good–but most of it was done better in the Bruce Timm led Justice League and JLU cartoons.

It’s hard to surpass the Timm era work, it’s true!

I didn’t care much for Young Justice; found most of the characters annoying (especially Robin and surly-acting Wolverine-wannabe Superboy), and also disliked its casting Superman as some sort of “Deadbeat Dad” (a la “Superman Returns”) and making him look bad. I preferred “Teen Titans,” though not been as big on “Go”. (Wondering how Young Justice will work out there…)
