I was very hard on the Young Justice TV show when it first premiered because of the gender diversity and portrayals in the first few shows. I’m still not comfortable with the ratio of boys to girls or how the two female characters fall into girly girl and tough girl archetypes. This, I hope, will change when the newest female character joins next season.
The show has also spawned a monthly comic which fills in the back story to some of the episodes. The October issue focuses on Artemis, and I recommend picking it up. First, it was terrific to see a young kid’s superhero comic (that’s who is supposed to be reading these …) focus the entire issue on female character (I gave it to a 12 year old girl who is now OBSESSED with Artemis). Secondly, because it drops some hints around some of the shows mysteries specifically who is Cheshire.
Don’t look too close at the page that follows if you don’t want a hint.
The poster. In her room. That she shares with her sister. Interesting, huh?
