Critic Reviews for Young Justice Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

It was a clever concept that was pretty well executed: above-average animation; intriguingly different takes on a few familiar characters; and the promise of even better editions to come.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

[The finale] all ultimately just feels anticlimactic and mildly frustrating as the showrunners are already setting up Season 2 storylines when they haven't adequately resolved all of Season 1.

Young Justice goes one further by echoing the modern approach and its emphasis on smaller story arcs making up a larger series. It's a natural transition for a show that emphasizes the narrative over all else.

Feb 15, 2019 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

Perhaps the most notable thing about the series, however, was that it packed a massive emotional punch when it wanted. There are genuine deaths in the show, along with moments of loss, grief, and tragedy.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a great watch on its own, but really only essential Batman watching if you want to see another facet of the oft-adapted character.

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Some of the best animation and storytelling ... makes Young Justice a modern classic.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

The characters are already nailed down, the personalities and the way they interact. Great stuff here, true to comics.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

More than just a riveting season finale, the episode boosts Savage's threat and reveals that for 16 hours during their infection, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and three other Leaguers all went missing.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

The storytelling in Young Justice has plenty of imagination, and the characters provide dependable touchstones for young viewers -- the impatient speedster, the sly computer hacker, the stoic strongman.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Die-hard DC fans will enjoy a fresh take on the universe with a new take on many of the characters.

Audience Reviews for Young Justice: Season 1

  • May 14, 2020
    Young Justice makes nearly each of it's episodes an adventure, and the amount of character development for the entire main cast is a welcome surprise.
  • Nov 09, 2019
    Even though YOUNG JUSTICE is already almost 10 years old, the animation and characters still hold up with consistently good and some surprising plot elements in all the episodes.
  • Sep 11, 2019
    I love the series its so pure DC comics out done their cartoons except for Teen Titans Go and i hope the the DCU will improve their movies like this beautiful series
  • Sep 05, 2019
    Marvel may have DC beat in the film industry, but Marvel can never hope to compete with the masterpieces in animation that DC has. From the Justice League to JLU, and now Young Justice, DC has brought the world action-packed animation and wonderful writing.
  • Jul 29, 2019
    Fantastic animation and excellent characterization.
  • Apr 29, 2019
    Wonderful animation style with a great story threaded together through each episode. Bereft and Cold Hearted are amazing examples of how this show twists the usual forms of storytelling.
  • Apr 04, 2019
    Show amazing has a great plot and character development
  • Feb 25, 2019
    One of the best cartoons ever. You can watch with your kids and no one is bored.
  • Jan 27, 2019
    It's the best animated series DC comics ever made.
  • Jan 30, 2018
    A fun show that has a lot of good morrals and likable main characters. The biggest problem that I have is that the villains are a little weak, and that their plan makes no sense, but besides that they did a good job
