Wonder Girl, Batgirl, Bumblebee, And Miss Martian Team-Up On Young Justice: Invasion

On this week’s episode of Young Justice: Invasion, it was an all-girl team-up, with Wonder Girl, Batgirl, Bumblebee, and Miss Martian infiltrating a base in Bialya, the home country of the villainous Queen Bee.  Of course, we most care about Wonder Girl, the only Wonder-person doing anything outside of comics these days.  Nightwing tries to relay the plan, but keener Wonder Girl knows it already.  Sneak in, see if there are bombs, and sneak out:

The reason behind the all-girl team leads to the best exchange of the night:

NIGHTWING: Bialya’s dictator, Queen Bee, is another story.  Her ability to control the minds of men is why Alpha is an all-female squad for this mission.

BATGIRL: Oh, really?  And would you have felt the need to justify an all-MALE squad for a given mission?

NIGHTWING: [coughs] There’s no right answer for that, uh, is there?  So… Nightwing out.

BATGIRL: Queen Bee isn’t the only woman who can mess with a man’s mind.

Once in Bialya, Wonder Girl is disappointed to get lookout duty because of her lack of stealth skills.  She’s more smash and grab, and is bummed out:

But of course, once the mission begins, Psimon and a bunch of goons show up.  Wonder Girl sneaks in and warns Miss Martian, but gets intercepted by Devastation:

And then she escapes, because she’s pretty epic.  I mean, check out this bullet deflection… it’s coming at her:

And BAM:

Once freed, the whole team is fixing to rescue a bunch of kidnapped kids when OH NO the goons tear the wings off their airplane and they’re nosediving!!  Wonder Girl slows the plane down as best she can:

And then Miss Martian grabs the plane with her awesome martian ship and there is much rejoicing:

All in all, the mission took a bad turn but ended up being a big success AND Wonder Girl got to bust up a bunch of bad guys.  It was a pretty good time, and it was fun to see Wonder Girl get some more screen time again so soon in the season.  Plus we got a second of Marina Sirtis as Queen Bee at the end of the show!!  Deanna Troi popping in is always sweet.  This new season of Young Justice is pretty bizarre with it’s big time jump and all, but I’m kind of digging it so far.  Check back here for more screencaps next time Wonder Girl has another big episode!!
