10 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn't Know About Young Justice

Young Justice's line-up of young heroes was one of the things that made the the show's first season such a success. However, the comic series that inspired it actually had quite a different team.

Superboy was still a fixture of the comics and so was Robin - albeit the Tim Drake version of the character. As for the rest of the team, the pair were accompanied in their original one-shot by Impulse and also crossed paths with Secret. When their ongoing series began, Secret joined the team along with Wonder Girl and Arrowette.

While characters like Impulse and Wonder Girl would become important to the TV series in later seasons, with both of them factoring into Invasion and Outsiders, it was only Superboy and Robin that were vital parts of the team in the early days of the series - and even then, it was Dick Grayson behind the Boy Wonder's mask.

The decision to change the line-up does seem a little controversial but, when you think about it, adding young heroes like Kid Flash, Artemis, Miss Martian and Aqualad - all of whom had close connections to prominent members of the Justice League - allowed major heroes like The Flash, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter and Aquaman to have substantial supporting roles.
