Re: Young Justice, Green Lantern return January 5th

Right, it's just routine action storytelling, and not just in cartoons or comics. Tons of action heroes have survived being blown through the air by explosions, something that realistically should've pulped their innards and perforated them with shrapnel. Or they've been able to shrug off a bullet wound in the shoulder or leg and still be able to win a fight with the bad guy. Fictional characters, even ones nominally without superpowers, are routinely far more durable than real people. (Well, unless the plot requires them to die, in which case they usually die much more quickly and easily than real people.)
