YOUNG JUSTICE “Fireworks” Review

YOUNG JUSTICE "Fireworks" Season 1 Episode 2 – The second half the the two-part season opener (and one-hour preview pilot) of YOUNG JUSTICE was even better than the first halve, loaded with comic book-based fun. In "Fireworks," Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad had discovered "The Superboy" – a clone of you know who – but have been taken captive in the bowels of Project Cadmus due to the evil director Desmond (voiced with nasty glee by Rene Auberjonois) and mind-control creatures. But watching them turn Superboy to their side was great.

The various geno-morphs (all sorts of odd, monster like genetic creations make for quite the gauntlet, but our trio now turned quartet all learned from the best (Well, Superboy is still winging it, but he nonetheless kicks butt). Thanks to good guy DNAlien (as Jack Kirby called ‘em) Dubblix, the Guardian is freed of the mind control creatures, just as Desmond swallows the contents of a test tube filled "Project BlockBuster," turning him into Hulkish creature that can even take on Supes Jr. So, it’s real team time. They work together. And take him down – hard.
