It's been a while since I've seen the episode and I forget, how is a new GL of sector 2814 explained here?

IIRC, it was because Hal had been away so long and it wasn't clear if he'd return, so they assigned another GL to take over his territory. I'd imagine they had someone else take over Kilowog's drill-sergeant duties on Oa as well.

Re: Young Justice, Green Lantern return January 5th

I find it interesting that the show hasn't incorporated the "Partner" dynamic into the Corps yet.

Plus, When do we get to see Kyle and John show up? Alan? Jade? (heh)

As we all know. Earth needs at least 4+ Lanterns at all times.

^A conceit the show has nicely averted by setting things mostly in space.

I would be seriously surprised if Kyle turned up at all. It seems that everyone currently running DC hates the character so he gets no air time. In fact, he is the only GL not shown in Young Justice (which is ironic given that he's close enough in age that he could have been on the team). I would not be surprised if they skipped Kyle entrely and introduced Simon Baz.

I think it is part of the retcon (forget the nineties ever happened) at DC. No more Wally, no more Conner Hawke, etc.

From how it sounded to me, and given DC-Martian naming conventions, I suspect it's probably something like B'arzz O'om. But yeah, cute.

So if Scarabs come in multiple colors, it's quite a coincidence that the one Ted Kord unearthed just happened to be blue. Anyway, I liked the moment in the teaser when Atom and Bumblebee were inside someone's bloodstream doing the ol' Fantastic Voyage routine, and the mechanical antibodies started swarming out of the invasive object, and then I put the pieces together: "Oh! Blue bug-thingies! They're inside Jaime and that metal thing is the Scarab!"

One thing bugged me: the scene in the cornfield where Robin gave the others instructions telepathically. How? There were no telepaths on the squad. Who was linking them?

Also, I think that security guards in fictional universes should be trained with certain standard guidelines, such as:

If you see a monitor fritz out for a few seconds and then seemingly go back to normal, immediately go to that location. Do not assume you're still seeing a live image.

If you hear a noise like a rock or small object hitting the ground in one direction, immediately search for intruders in the opposite direction.

And so forth.


Meanwhile, over in 3-D space on Green Lantern, we finally meet Sinestro. A decent introduction to the character, who I assume will be playing a major role this season. I'm a bit surprised to see the spider aliens returning, since I thought they were from an incredibly remote part of space.

It was called Malacandra in Ostrander's MM. Similar nod imo.

No, he's referring to the character name of the "Green Beetle" introduced in this episode, the Martian who had a Scarab like Jaime's.

For a moment I was wondering if the green guy was a Reach Green Lantern. But then he would've had the GL emblem on his outfit.

For a second I thought he was Bug from the old Micronauts comic.

Re: Young Justice, Green Lantern return January 5th

I found it amusing that Lexcorp Farms was located in Smallville. I kind of wanted Luthor to be sitting in the "Old Luthor Estate" in that town.

One observation though...does everyone on the Team know Superman's secret ID? That certainly was not the case 5 years earlier. I can believe that Dick and Tim know, as well as Bart, but Jaime probably did not.

Also, If Jonathan likes having his boys around, why is Connor staying at the warehouse? He has a home that he can return to.
