Maybe it’s just because I’ve recently gone back and watched Young Justice, but is anyone else severely disappointed in the lack of acknowledgment on the other half of Bart’s ancestry? Namely, the fact that he is half-Thawne (sorry to those of you who didn’t know).
Like, you can do a lot with it! Introduce Thad or Owen into the show and you have a really great dynamic between Bart and his brother and clone, especially Owen. Owen Mercer, for those who don’t know, is the second Captain Boomerang and the son of Meloni Thawne and the first Captain Boomerang, Digger Hawkins. He’s Bart’s half brother through Meloni and exists because somehow Digger ended up in the future and he and Meloni, Bart’s mom, had a kid.
I just feel like you could do some really good stuff with that story, especially now after season 3 and Bart is older. Heck, even introducing his clone, Thaddeus thawne II, would have been really cool in season three since it was all about metahuman trafficing and exsperiments.
Idk I feel like that could have done something and have so much potential for it but they just don’t use it
