Young Justice #24

Young Justice #24Things aren’t going well for the Young Justice team in either the past or the present. In the flashbacks the team attempts to stop Deadshot‘s assassination attempt. And in the present things aren’t looking much better as the scattered members of the team deal with an alien invasion and it’s effect on the populace of Metropolis.

Superman,SuperboyCaptain AtomCaptain Marvel, and Wonder Woman continue to try and fight off Braniac‘s crystallized minion in space as the Atom, the Martian Manhunter, and the Flash‘s attempt to sneak aboard the ship slowly shrinking Metropolis fails in spectacular fashion, nearly costing the three heroes their lives.

Although Nightwing and his team of ZatannaBlue Bettle, and Wonder Girl are far more successful in their attempt to infiltrate the ship, they are unprepared for what awaits them. While trapped in the city, Black Lightning tries to keep the peace and clamp down on the rioting and looting as Batgirl tries to hold off the Supeboy clone Match all on her own.

There’s plenty of action, and some nice character moments (I really enjoyed the sequence with Zatanna, Blue Beetle, and Cassie), even if the story seems a bit fractured and unfocused. Batgirl fans should be happy as the heroine gets several pages here and I’m always pleased when Captain Marvel gets in on the action. Worth a look.
