Young Justice Season 1, Episodes 3 & 4
“Welcome to Happy Harbor”
SUMMARY: The team gets to know each other better and take on the villainous Mr. Twister. Despite some members’ doubts about Miss Martian, she proves herself a valuable member of the team.
Syd: The third episode focuses on Megan Morse – Miss Martian – and her first mission as a superhero.
Margaret: I love that they’re finally bringing in a female main character, and Miss Martian seems like an interesting woman. I have more to say about her, but her main story starts a bit later than the beginning of the episode.
Syd: The action starts in Star City where Roy Harper is fighting bad guys who are doing bad guy stuff. Maybe it’s a drug shipment? It isn’t made clear. What I have noticed while rewatching this series is how much more slowly everything goes than I remembered it. We’ve watched four episodes so far and there is still only one female character and Roy hasn’t come up with a superhero name yet. Come on, Roy, if you don’t get on that immediately, people will be calling you Speedy forever.
Margaret: Roy is too cool and independent for superhero names. He’s also too cool for the Young Justice, telling them he’s not about to join their club. The Justice League is just trying to keep them busy while they do all the important Superhero saving. He equates adult supervision as babysitting. It is probably the most rebellious teenager response I have ever heard.
