"U.S.Avengers": A Guide to Marvel's New Patriotic Superhero Team
Cartoon Network has unveiled a preview of the third episode of Young Justice, “Welcome to Happy Harbor,” which will air on Jan. 21. The two-part pilot “Independence Day,” which originally aired on Nov. 26, will be rebroadcast on Jan. 7 and 14.
The clip features Aqualad, Kid Flash and Robin helping Speedy apprehend criminals while trying to recruit him to the team. According to The World’s Finest, the story centers on Young Justice mistakenly thinking the evil Mister Twister is actually Red Tornado “testing” them. Although there’s mention in the preview of Miss Martian, who was introduced in the final moments of the pilot, there’s still no sign of the other female member Artemis, who’s absent even from the Young Justice web page.
As established in the pilot, the Young Justice team will serve as a covert-operations team for the high-profile Justice League, training with Black Canary between missions assignments from Batman — all under the watchful eye of Red Tornado.
Young Justice airs Fridays at 7 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network beginning Jan. 7.
