Young Justice – “Independence Day, Parts 1 – 2”
7:00pm (ET) on Friday, November 26th, 2010
“In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over — to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? Thats exactly what the members of Young Justice Robin (aka Dick Grayson), Aqualad (aka Kaldur’ahm), Kid Flash (aka Wally West), Superboy (aka Conner Kent), Miss Martian (aka M’gann M’orzz) and Artemis will find out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero.”
