Young Justice: Outsiders Treats Us To Some Action

There is nothing like some Dick to make your week a little better, I mean Dick really can improve anyone’s day, unless your the villain that Dick is going at hard. I am of course talking about Dick Grayson, AKA the original Robin, but now more commonly known as Nightwing. What else did you think I was talking about?

With the newest clip from Young Justice: Outsiders we get to see Night Wing in his element.

My initial thoughts show that the teams mission has not changed, they are still saving the lives of children that are being kidnapped for sinister experiments, ones that are being transformed into metahuman’s for yet unknown reasons. What we know so far is that the small fictional European country of Markovia is tied to these abductions and this fits nicely, because this season of Young Justice is set to feature the super hero Geo-Force. Geo-Force is not only the brother to the former Teen Titan Terra he is also prince of Markovia. So it looks like the team will be running a black-ops operation overseas, in the tiny European country.

With the title of the clip being Bedlam I suspect that the major villain this season will be Baron Bedlam. He is a minor DC villain but he is definitely from Markovia and what we know is he is a skilled fighter, tactician and geneticist. Though there are two other Bedlam’s in DC comics, the first is Young Justice villain with reality warping powers and the other is from Apoloklips. It is likely that the Bedlam from Young Justice: Outsiders may be an amalgamation of all three of these as we know that Apoloklyse is somehow allied with the Light, who where the over all villains from Season 1 and 2, and this season is set in Markovia, plus even though they have adopted the Outsiders moniker, they are still Young Justice. 

An interesting aspect to note is the reference to Oracle, when we last left the team in Season 2 Batgirl was an active member, but now the team features Oracle and if you look at the line up you will see that the only female member of the Bat Family to feature is Spoiler. I will talk more about Spoiler later, but Oracle is the name that Batgirl takes on after she is crippled by the joker, which says to me that this season will take a much darker look at the DC universe. Also anyone with a keen ear will spot that Oracle is voiced by Alyson Stoner, Legend of Korra, Voltron, Camp Rock and Step Up.

It looks like Season 3 will deliver on the great quality story telling of the first two season and honestly the wait is kind of killing me.
