    Not saying that they could refute everything, but they shouldn't be as far behind the eight ball as they are. The Justice League aren't Spider-Man or the Gargoyles. They have trained investigators, respectability and institutional backing. They should be able to push back at least some, instead of the cliche "Everything gets solved at the last minute!"
    And proving that The League was mind controlled does not prove the existence of the Light or Luthor's and/or The Reach's connection to it. Or prevent Rimbor from not charging the League as criminals.

    Actually probably more than half of the heroes on Team are not publicly known heroes. And they would not be considered impartial witnesses. And the previous episode gave reasoning to why the abductees are not viable witnesses.

    Timestamps on cameras on a satellite in Earth orbit won't prove anything about an incident that happened in a different galaxy where the system of time measurement is almost certainly different than ours. No one on Earth (aside from the League and The Light) actually knows when the incident on Rimbor happened and there's no way to link the two that doesn't involve everyone just taking the League's word for what happened and when. What are they going to do, subpoena someone from Rimbor to come to Earth and testify? And the Starro tech wouldn't prove anything other than that there are villains who have mind control tech, which the authorities already know. It's not evidence in this specific case because the only people who can link it to the Rimbor incident are members of the League. There's no independent corroboration of anything the League says. And the fact that the members of the League's covert squad of teenagers all have public profiles does nothing to counter the (accurate) accusation that the League uses teenagers as spies, or the fact that all of those "public heroes" have secret identities, which would make the testimony of a bunch of teenage runaways and orphans on the League's behalf suspect, because there'd be no way of knowing how many of the kids testifying were sidekicks out of costume (or, for that matter, how many of them were getting some kind of support from the League in return for their testimony)..

    It's a fair point to say that G Gordon Godfrey is a cariacature of modern day political punditry (which he is), but it is wrong to say that the Godfrey show patterns itself after Fox News. The best you can say is that Godfrey's show is a distorted view of what the left thinks Fox News is, like the Colbert show or West Wing. In other words, it's complete fiction and real world politics such as the politcal slander you just committed in two posts now doesn't need to be brought in here. The community forum is the place for political discussion. Take it there if you want.

    Whomever mentioned J Jonah Jameson is right, Godfrey is basically a DC version of him, which shouldn't surprise anyone considering Weisman's last project.

    We'll know in March who was in denial, ok?

    Deportation would mean I'm trying to get you banned. I'm not. I'm trying to keep this thread from derailing and suggesting to you that this part of the discussion is better discussed in the Community forums. Create a thread there man, I'm sure you'll find lots of people ready to argue the points you have made.

    Maybe in trying to do that Miss M. will screw it up even more and make him a full-on villain. That would be poetic.

    J'onn is another galaxy and M'Gann is so spooked by what happened with Kaldur that she's apparently afraid to use her telepathic powers in any forcefully intrusive way. So, for all intents and purposes, they don't have a telepath to help them.

    Anyone else catch the Edgar Rice Burroughs reference with the Green Beetle's name? He said his name was something like B'ars O'om. You know, like "Barsoom" from the John Carter novels.

    Regardless for some reason you feel the need to single me out despite the fact that I'm not the only one here who believes the third season isn't being picked up. Anyways I'm not got to waste anymore pages debating the shows cancellation with you, find someone else to argue with.

    Yeah, that was pretty good. Things are going to go pretty pear shaped for Aqualad and Artemis once Psimon gets done in Aqualad's noodle.

    Not answering that here. What anyone thinks of Fox News doesn't matter the least to Young Justice show.

    Yeah, because with the team's ability to predict the future they certainly could have seen that one coming, right? Please.

    What should they have done? Cut him loose and leave him to his own devices out in the world? The "chip on his shoulder" is a result of him feeling abandoned. By making him a part of the team, a part of the family, they're trying to rectify that. As such, a covert surveillance mission is exactly the kind he should go on because it puts him in a situation where he's working with the group in the field but, at least in theory, it wouldn't actually require him to do much.

    yeah, we saw how much red arrow pushed the boundaries and he was more adjusted then arsenal.

    and why do I get the feeling that red arrow is going to join cheshire and sportsmaster in their revenge on artemis?

    I think it's much more likely that he tries to stop them and convince Cheshire to give it uo for the sake of their own child.
