Warning: This article contains spoilers for the current season of Young Justice: Outsiders.
Per the title, the new season of Young Justice: Outsiders contains a group called…well, the Outsiders. But just who are they? Could this group be related at all to the one formed by Batman when some members of the Justice League left the team?
Well, let’s take a look at the recent episode “Triptych.” Throughout, several teams of heroes are going up against the likes of Simon Stagg, Shade, and Mad Hatter in an attempt to shut down some abuse of metahumans, keeping with the ongoing trend this season. In addition, a team including the likes of Nightwing and Black Lightning pursue Killer Frost, Shade, and Mist to stop them from stealing metahuman technology. Then you have the Flash and Shazam pursuing Kadabra and Sportsmaster.
What brings all of these events in Young Justice together is the ending. Kaldur and Miss Martian hold a meeting with Wonder Woman, and it’s here that we meet the actual Outsiders: the aforementioned Kaldur, Miss Martian, and Wonder Woman, in addition to Batman, Robin, Nightwing, and Oracle. And it turns out that this small team is responsible for leading the various teams of heroes without the teams themselves actually knowing this.
Similar to how the Light operates, Batman mentions that this is taking a cue from them. In effect, the Outsiders can maneuver around Lex Luthor’s sanctions. Though Diana does wonder how long this can continue with the Outsiders not being completely honest with the Justice League. But what did you think of the reveal of the actual Outsiders on Young Justice? And how long do you believe this can continue without the League itself becoming aware of this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Young Justice: Outsiders features voice work from Jesse McCartney, Nolan North, Stephanie Lemelin, Jason Spisak, Zehra Fazal, Troy Baker, Khary Payton, Alyson Stoner, Jason Marsden, Vanessa Marshall, Marina Sirtis, Mark Rolston, Kelly Hu, and Bruce Greenwood.
“From Warner Bros. Animation, Young Justice: Outsiders features the return of the fan favorite animated series with a huge cast of DC’s most iconic young super heroes – plus brand-new characters, many of whom are just discovering their unique meta-powers and special abilities. Set against the backdrop of a rich, deep world that touches all corners of the DC universe, our heroes will face the new threat of metahuman-trafficking, and an intergalactic arms race for control of these super-powered youths.”
Young Justice: Outsiders is currently available on the DC Universe streaming service.
