I’m happy that Warner, through their Archive line, released “Young Justice”: Invasion as a companion to the first season. It’s a great show through and through with excellent action, engaging storylines and nice animation. The Blu-ray release offers some good bonus material and solid video/audio transfers.

THE SEASON

A lot has changed in five years, as our super heroes are about to find out. And there are some new residents to be found at Mount Justice: new team leader Nightwing, Wonder Girl, Blue Beatle, Batgirl, Bumblebee and Beast Boy. Young Justice will need all the help it can get as an alien presence has infiltrated Earth, while certain members of the Justice League are forced to stand trial at the criminal hearing off-world. Watch as The Reach spearheaded by the quick-talking Ambassador and backed by the muscle of Black Beatle, manipulates a trusting public while maintaining its shadowy maneuvering with The Light.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 2.5/5

The two-disc set comes housed in a standard Blu-ray case.

Episode Commentaries are available on ‘Summit’ and ‘Endgame’ with Producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Wetti, Voice Actors Jason Spisak (Kid Flash) and Stephanie Lemelin (Tigress)

“Invasion”: Behind the Scenes (16:01; SD) is a short (and poorly show) featurette but has rare interviews with the animators and others about the “Young Justice” second season.


VIDEO – 4.0/5

“Justice League”: Invasion flies onto Blu-ray presented with a 1080p high-definition transfer and in its originally televised 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio. The picture has brilliantly bright colors, good detail and only moderate aliasing.

AUDIO – 4.0/5

The DTS-HD Master Audio Stereo track is strong but even keeled with clear dialogue levels while sound effects during the more action-oriented scenes had some robust although it was certainly flat with the limited number of channels.



OVERALL – 4.0/5

Overall, I’m happy that Warner, through their Archive line, released “Young Justice”: Invasion as a companion to the first season. It’s a great show through and through with excellent action, engaging storylines and nice animation. The Blu-ray release offers some good bonus material and solid video/audio transfers.
