Subject: [dc-heroes] Young Justice animated series news
Well first off, contrary to early reports, the show's creators have confirmed
that Robin and Kid Flash will be Dick Grayson and Wally West, not Tim Drake and
Bart Allen. The writers stated the reasons for this are that their show takes
place in a timeline where Superman first appeared 10 years ago and Batman 9
years ago. Thus there isn't room in the timeline for second or third generation
sidekicks, although strangely they have DCs new Aqualad and have said Garth will
appear. Superboy is said to be literally 16 weeks old, he is still Kon El.
Secondly the show has been declared to be (officially) Earth 16 of the DC
Multiverse and as such the comic that will be launched with the show will be "in
continuity" for DC.
There still hasn't been an announcement of the premiere date, the only thing
I've been able to find is that it should premiere in November.
I'll be back with more when I have it,
