Young Justice #25

Young Justice #25Young Justice comes to an end with the final issue that wraps up the lingering stories of two different alien attacks on Earth at the same time, a political assassination involving Deadshot, Metropolis being cut-off from the rest of the world, and a closer look at Dick Grayson‘s relationship with Barbara Gordon.

As final issues go there’s a legitimate threat (or two) that concern the fate of the Earth and some nice personal moments thrown in for good measure to. The asssination attempts, which take place five years apart, continue to be the weak link (and the first attempt, which is finally abandoned here, is pretty much a complete waste of time).

Of the two alien stories, Braniac‘s works far better although both seem to reach rushed conclusions far earlier than either had planned. There are also plenty of threads left dangling with no hope of resolution. However, the scenes between Dick and Babs are pretty damn good, and the various stories continue to allow multiple characters to each find their moment in the sun. Is it a great finale? Not really, but fans should enjoy it.

Considering the comic’s creators have said online that they had many more storylines planned out for this title, one must assume that it was given the axe earlier than expected by DC, so it’s understandable that they tried to jam in as much material as possible in so few issues. Would have been nice to have more, but for fans of the show & comic, it doesn’t disappoint.
