Young Justice is an American animated television series created by Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti for Cartoon Network. Despite its title, it is not an adaptation of Todd Dezago and Todd Nauck's Young Justice series of comics, but rather, an adaptation of the entire DC Universe with a focus on young superheroes.The series follows the lives of teenaged superhero sidekicks, who are members of a fictional superhero team simply known as the Team, and their relationships with their Justice League mentors. The story is set at a time where superpowers and superheroes are a relatively recent phenomenon.
Cornered (Season 2, Episode 11)Edit
The Team is trapped inside the Hall of Justice for a cage match against a brutal alien gladiator named Despero who can produce, via his third eye, a psychic blast that puts its victims in a silent, motionless trance. He use that ability three times. First to prevent Zatanna from casting spell since he consider magic to be cheating. The second time is on Bumblebee when she makes him particularly mad. The third time is on captain marvel, after he turned back into Billy Batson; Despero, not interested in fighting a child, put him in a trance and then just left him on the ground. Later in the episode Miss Martian snaps Zatanna from her trance, who then uses a spell that reflects Despero's psychic blast back at him rendering him completely helpless.
