At the end of YJ: Outsiders (henceforth Young Justice Season 3) we hear a speech about who the heart and conscience of the Justice League is…
For some reason they shoehorned in Black Lightning.
That is a complete and outright slap in the face to the REAL heart and soul of the Justice League…
(Who isn’t even at the Watchtower.)
Though this isn’t just relegated to Young Justice.
Every series places Batman on a pedestal. He is always the smartest. He is always the best.
Superman? Usually the butt of the joke.
Even Justice League and JLU, both legendary shows, downplayed Superman. So much so that, in the season finale, after the World of Cardboard speech, Suoerman loses and Metron/Luthor beats Darkseid.
Now YJ season 3 sets up Lex Luthor as one of the main antagonists. In a series where Superboy played very little part and Superman had no part in the main story - Save for one scene and a little lip service about how he didn’t know what Batman/Wonder Woman were doing…
Which also indicated that he wouldn’t go along with it.
But noooooo that makes Black Lightning the conscience of the Justice League.
I’ve got no problem with him being the leader of the League - Superman’s always bern the heart, but never the brain.
But come on.
Give Big Blue some credit DC. Stop constantly tossing the Last Son of Krypton under the proverbial bus.
