Romantic Moment #13
“Usual Suspects”, from Young Justice
So I haven’t gotten around to adding this show to my list of fangirling, but this is a show I thought was just fantastic.
My friend actually got me interested, and once I started watching, I just couldn’t stop.
Why did they only have three season? It was amazingly well done in presenting the characters, the backstories, and the issues they face. This should have kept going.
Anyways, let’s move on.
So this episode comes at the very end of the first season. Having been rejected into joining the Justice League, they have their own group, Young Justice, that consists of Superboy (Superman’s clone): M’gann/Megan as Miss Martian (John the Martin Manhuter’s niece); Artemis (Green Arrow’s niece); Dick Grayson’s Robin/Nightwing (Batman’s protogeé); Wally West as Kid Flash (the Flash’s nephew); and Kaldur’ahm’s Aqualad (Aqua Man’s sidekick).
The team work hard to prove their worth; showing that are more than secondary characters. There is also secrets, betrayal, love; and a lot more twists and turns that make this series solid.
Most Romantic Moment: I Knew and I Didn’t Care
So Megan has been blackmailed by a villain into doing her bidding or else it will be revealed as to what she really looks like. You see, on Mars there is serious racism between the Green and White martians. Megan was born as a White Martian, and not gonna lie is pretty terrifying. She’s always hated how she looks,
As she has the power to change her appearance all the way down to a cellular level, when she comes to Earth she pretends to be a green martian and copies the form of an actress she admired.
But when this secret threatens the group, she decides to reveal all, but is terrified that they will have the same disgust as those on her home planet.
However, when she reveals her true form; her boyfriend Superboy and the others don’t care. In fact Superboy has known all along, even before they were a couple, and it never mattered to him.
And to make it even cuter. In an earlier episode, Image, Megan lies about how she looks and Superboy told her then he didn’t care.
He knew then, but never let on: letting Megan reveal herself when she was ready. How sweet!
