Young Justice has a huge cast of characters, but one of the best parts of the series is how they have different teams working together. Enough though we’ve had dozens of young heroes in the past, there are still a few more that we would love to see. Here are the five characters we want to see in Young Justice: Outsiders!
5. Damian Wayne (Robin)
The first season of Young Justice starts with Dick Grayson, the first Robin. Jason Todd dies in between season one and two, and Tim Drake is Robin is season two. It would make perfect sense for the third season to feature the third Robin. Damian Wayne is an ideal choice. As the child of Talia Al Ghul and Bruce Wayne, Damian comes from an interesting background. Having him work alongside the rest of the team is always fun. Plus he has a sword. We need more swordsman on this team.
4. Donna Troy
We had a Wonder Girl in season two with Cassie Sandsmark, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have Donna Troy. For those of you who do not know, Donna is the original Wonder Girl from the Teen Titans comics. She shares a similar origin to Superboy, but they can always play around with the background of the character like the comics continue to do.
The world needs more Starfire. I could leave this section to that one sentence, but that probably wouldn’t go over well. Kory can bring a lot of personality to the show. One of the problems with the second season was that it got too serious at times. Kory can fill the same role Miss Martian did in season one. Someone who can add a bit of levity and still be a serious character. Plus we need that Nightwing, Oracle, Starfire love triangle. Jokes aside, Starfire is a great character thank can bring a new dynamic to the team.
2. Red Hood
Remember what I said about Damian Wayne? Those are the same reasons we need to see Jason Todd. How did he fit into the team? What happens and his return? It can be an excellent character arc, especially if you tell the Under the Red Hood storyline and replace Batman with Nightwing. Red Hood is a fan favorite that they already hinted at in season two. Now is the time for the pay-off.
The fact that Supergirl has not appeared in Young Justice is genuinely shocking. I assume they didn’t want her to steal the spotlight from Superboy. Regardless of the reason, now is the time to introduce Kara Zor-El. The team has already gotten to the point where they have different squads, so her power level is not an issue anymore. Plus we need to see more from Superman’s world. We have had a bunch from Batman, and Green Arrow so let’s expand to the Man of Steel. Kara is a strong character in her own right, so it’s time they brought her in.
Honorable Mentions: Cyborg, Harley Quinn, Raven, and Terra.
