Young Justice Season 2, Episode 6
SUMMARY: Impulse, a tourist from 40 years in the future, visits Mt. Justice and helps fight Neutron alongside his grandfather, The Flash.
Syd: This episode starts with Nightwing recapping what we know of the Kroloteans’ plan – that they are kidnapping humans to use as experiments.
Margaret: They are looking for something that there is no English word for: the metagene. Aha! So they’re trying to do DC mutants. Got it. I can’t blame them. Mutants are popular.
Syd: Fox has been hogging the all-purpose origin story for too long. It’s a good idea for Warner Brothers to jump on their own. They were kind of running out of non-ridiculous origin stories anyway. What I think is interesting is that Dick says there is no English word. So is “metagene” French or something?
Margaret: If anything, I’d think it would be German. They tend to shove different words into each other to get a new descriptive one. Like der Kühlschrank, which literally means ‘cool cupboard’, which is a fridge.
Syd: Enough linguistics! Bart is here!
