    I love the old series and these characters but I just can't do another year of this, good luck everyone.

    I'm just wondering if this series is going anywhere.

    The book has literally gone in a circle, the team is exactly where they were at the start right down to Conner once again missing in another dimension.

    Whatever great reveal or explanation Bendis is clearly stalling for likely won't be satisfying or worth the wait if how the conclusions of Levithan and Rogol Zaar are anything to go by.

    This was the last of his books I was still reading and frankly I think I'll have a more enjoyable 2020 in the world of comics being entirely free of him as his writing clearly doesn't agree with me.

    Just read the new issue. They definitely cover a lot more ground in this issue than they have since #6.

    Hopefully that's the case, and hopefully it's enough to keep my interest because right now I'm pretty sure I'm done with this book.

    I've supported Bendis' work at DC to varying degrees (with his main Superman book being best, imo), but his Young Justice book seems to really highlight all of his absolute worse instincts and flaws as a creator.

    It's a book with absolutely no direction, and surprisingly minimal character work past the first 3 or 4 issues. I'm not anticipating anything when I read this book, and I never feel like I'm building towards anything in this. It just feels like it's getting by on the fact that it's brought these character back, and that it's a fairly shallow idea of a teen and team book.

    I was waiting for the other shoe to drop, but I figure not every one of these books needs to be for me.

The hopes of those who will follow. Those two sets of dreams weave together into a double helix, drilling a path towards tomorrow. THAT's Tengen Toppa! THAT'S Gurren Lagann! MY DRILL IS THE DRILL THAT CREATES THE HEAVENS!"

    If it helps, they definitely have 2 mission based objectives now and it seems like this upcoming arc will resolve the Superboy arc Bendis set up back in #3.

    I was so worried about Bendis' Legion that I didn't expect Young Justice to become the second coming of his Guardians run.

    I've got a question about Young Justice Season 4 (Young Justice: Phantoms?).

    While Greg Weissman has said that the show will focus more on the original core cast, I think it's inevitable that we will get at least a few new characters:

    Given that they appeared in the outro clips in the YJO finalle, I'd say that Cisco "Vibe" Ramone* and Wendy "Windfall" Jones are heading for a bigger part in the narrative in YJ4/YJP, also given that two of the best known Darkseid plots of previous animated shows have also involved Supergirl (Kara In-Zee in STAS and Kara Zor-El in S/B:A) I think it's not unlikely that we'll get her. I'd also like them to complete the "Satellite Era" line-up by recruiting Firestorm for either the Justice League or the Outsiders.

    * If Vibe does appear, I hope that we get his team-mates Gypsy and Vixen at least, and maybe an Arrow-esque Hank/Nate fusion as Citizen Steel could work.

    I'd like them to finally give the characters they really didn't develop much in Outsiders (Cassandra Cain, Spoiler, Arrowette, Traci, etc.) some more focus before they introduce any new young heroes, but it being Young Justice they will probably strive for both.

    I could also see Jason being brought in, having been slightly more then teased in YJO. And with Damian probably at best being a toddler for the next series, Jason is the last of the main Bats to really have a role and all.

    The preview for issue 12 has a crossover with Dial H. Looks like Miguel has channeled the powers of a hero from another universe. A character with spider-like powers. A “spider-man” if you will.

    Pretty funny that the creator of Ultimate Spider-Man found a way to bring him to the DCU.
