I’m assuming that something must be up with the Wonder Woman rights, because I don’t think she’s been on Young Justice since the premiere. Tons of other Justice League members are on regularly, and awesomely so (Rob Lowe’s Captain Marvel was spectacular), including pretty much every big name, but there’s barely any Wonder Woman. Until tonight, that is!! In the episode, entitled “Failsafe”, the earth is invaded by nefarious aliens, and the ENTIRE Justice League got wiped out!! Lucky for us, this involved a lot of fun explodey scenes with cool heroes, including Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman lassoed one of the alien ships, as you can see from her killer grip and fierce determination in this screengrab:
She then swung the ship around as if it weighed nothing at all, sending it spiraling into another ship:
After which she smiled to herself in celebration:
And then she got zapped by another alien ship and disappeared.
Everything got resolved in the end, of course, but it was pretty crazy there for a while. It was fun to have her pop by the show… Young Justice has been especially good since it came back from hiatus. They’re even making Miss Martian stronger and more bad ass. I hope Wonder Woman’s appearance signals that we’ll get a Wonder Girl of some sort on the team soon.
Also, next week: New Genesis!! That’s going to be super cool!!
