Details Emerge About 'Young Justice'

New details have arisen about the animated series Young Justice. And Spinoff Online has brought it to the masses.

I highly recommend you read the rest of the article, but here is a small snippet:
The cartoon’s Robin and Kid Flash are definitely Dick Grayson and Wally West, not Tim Drake and Bart Allen. “We went through and made the decision fairly early on that this was going to be a young DC universe,” Weisman said, “that Superman will have only shown up ten years ago, put on the cape ten years ago, Batman would have only put on the cape nine years ago, that the heroes haven’t been around that long, and once you’ve made that decision, then the idea of starting with Dick Grayson and Wally West, the original side kicks, they’re still young …”
The world of Young Justice is part of DC’s multiverse. “… We’re set on Earth 16,” Vietti said, “so we’re actually a part of the DC Universe – you know they have 52 earths now and we’re Earth 16, so we’re part of the multiverse, and the comic book that’s based on the show is going to be in continuity.”
The producers compared the setup of Young Justice to that of Mission: Impossible. “Batman is kind of their Jim Phelps, if Jim Phelps didn’t go on the missions with them,” Vietti said. “So he chooses the team, and he sends them out on these covert missions.”

I highly recommend you read the whole article. This series looks like it's shaping up to be amazing. I can't wait.
