With the recent review I did of Young Justice comes a new review, the second season titled "Invasion" has just begun and having watched the premiere episode let me say right from the get go that this is not going to be much of an objective review because frankly there's not much objective I can see about this.. I freaking loved this episode..
I'm sick right now first of all, as I type this my joints and muscles are aching like no ones business and I haven't felt good for two days now so this episode was a welcome improvement on my day. It was insane, coming with surprises galore that I had not expected from new characters to various beloved voice actors.
Set five years after the last episode in Season 1 in which Vandal Savage takes temporary control over the Justice League via "Starro Tech", I called it by the way, the team has grown a good bit. Dick Grayson is no longer the Robin of the team but has been replaced by Tim Drake rather and has now become Nightwing, a character whose design I thoroughly approve of.. Honestly the Tim Drake Robin costume is a rather nice design as well, I was seriously digging both of them.
He's got a fucking Stun Staff, that's awesome.
Character designs I loved don't stop there though, joining us this season are new comers to the series Lagoon Boy, Beast Boy (who SPOILER ALERT: Remember the kid who Miss Martian donated her blood to? Yeah.. That's him.), Blue Beetle, Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Bumble Bee, Mal Duncan (Guardian) and Wonder Girl, Wonder Girl I particularly liked because her character design makes her a tad more muscularly defined than the other girls on the team and being a Martial Artist in life and therefore a slightly muscularly defined female myself I like seeing that in animation because it's realistic.
Never mind the awesome fact that goddamned Lobo was in this episode and I hope and think he'll be back for more throughout the season because Lobo is awesome and his animated incarnation here certainly did NOT fail to please.
Oh yeah.. All that awesome AND guess what?
Glorious Godfrey who is voiced by none other than Tim motherfucking awesomesauce Curry, yeah! YEAAAAHHHHHH!
For those of you that don't understand, I'm excited about this because Glorious Godfrey means that some serious shit is coming soon and Tim Curry voicing him? Ooh yes. Sweet sweet perfection.
If you can't tell I'm seriously into the second season, this series just keeps blowing me away and honestly? If you haven't seen this series yet, SEE IT. This is probably one of the best DC Animated Series to come out period, I'm seriously having a fan-girl orgasm every goddamned episode.
Awesome. Truly awesome.
James seemed to very much enjoy this and as simple as it was I'm still super proud of it. I feel very accomplished right now.
Now excuse me while I curl up in a corner and cry from my poor joints and muscles.
