    Beast Boy's appearance is fitting. Superboy has a bit of a Relaunch Superman look mixed with old school Superboy

    And unlike say, Ras who has a league of hired killers, virtually all of Batman's crime fighting resources run through him and Robin. So yeah, he's at something of a disadvantage

    I feel like this episode really needed to be decompressed and split. The first one would be YJ realizing the infiltration, finding Roy, and then going on the run. The second half would be finding people to make the cure and then their attack on the Watchtower. The "it's a miracle that so and so were able to make a cure for us" offscreen reference was a total cop-out. A brain-washed Justice League really deserves more to be a two-part threat.

    I enjoyed seeing the shame on Superman's face when he finally talked to Connor. He knows he's been a dick, even if his supporters online will ever deny it.

    Nope.

    Batman prides himself on always being one step ahead. Here, he's several steps behind. He was outflanked and outwitted (at least so far). The how and why of it are largely irrelevant.

    Nothing for me to make peace with, since I was actually (and pretty clearly) refuting an attempt to rationalize Batman's failure to outwit Luthor and Co, not defending his supposed infallibility. So go ahead, admit you don't know what you're taking about. It's okay.

    We never denied he's a dick. It's just that his reasons for being so are far more complicated that "being a dick".

    Yaaaay! Superman stopped being a douche! I'd prefer that he gave Conner his last name though. I forget: was that the last name of the character from M'ganns TV show, or did 1 of the members in the know suggest it?

And as The Cool Thatguy said The Light had control of The Justice League for about a day, the Leaguers identities are likely not that important to The Light.
    Captain Atom most certainly does have a secret identity, and we saw in the comic book that the team doesn't know it.

    Martian Manhunter suggested it, and M'gann thought it was a tribute to Kent Nelson.

    He had a human identity, but he was declared legally dead by the military. Captain Atom had the team settle some business from his past.

    I thought the previous episode was better, but this one was great too. I loved the swerve with Roy, it's deeper than just him being brainwashed. And The Light's motivations work fairly well, particularly where Savage, Ra's, and Luthor are concerned. The fights were decent, the only real draw was Aqualad/Artemis/Kid Flash against their mentors and then Superboy and Robin against Superman and Batman.

If they all did get together, I would feel very bad for Aqualad. Trying to lead all your teammates who are also couples, and one you might be dating, would be a huge headache.
    Especially dating a single mother, if that's Rocket's case in this show.

    I disagree. Although the Wally/Artemis kiss was very important to their characters, I feel the Robin/Zatanna relationship may be the deepest. Note Robin's initial attraction to her, but he had to hold off on making any actual advances on her when she lost her father, but he's been there to help her through the rough transition of living in Mount Justice the whole time and supporting her emotionally. He didn't want to be too forward, but as this episode showed, Zatanna appreciated him just being there for her and kissing him showed that she's ready to advance their relationship.

    Why won't he ever know? That may actually be a positive thing for him, knowing the JL thinks he'll be worthy of them some day.

    A normal human with a certain person's DNA.

    For Batman, sure, but the Light may not have been able to learn Superman's secret ID.

    The Team actually figured out how to find T.O. Morrow in a previous episode when Batman couldn't.

    I liked Superman complimenting Conner, but I thought revealing his secret identity was too much too soon. It'd be cool if Superman bonded with him, first as Superman, then with Clark Kent. M'Gann gave him the name "Conner" from the show "Hello Megan", but the last name "Kent" was given to him by Reddy and J'onn as a tribute to the late Kent Nelson (or so they said, they probably did it knowing it's Superman's last name).
