“DC Animation Pits “Justice League” vs. “Young Justice”

WonderCon attendees were treated to a boisterous “Justice League vs. Young Justice” panel featuring“Young Justice” Executive Producers Brandon Viettiand Greg Weisman, actors Jason Spisak (Kid Flash),Khary Payton (Aqualad), Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman, “Justice League Unlimited“) and Kevin Conroy (Batman), who stood on the table, sat in Payton’s seat, and immediately cited the famous “I am vengeance, I am the night” line to roaring applause. Warner Archive Collection podcasters D.W. Ferranti and Matthew Patterson and moderator Gary Miereanu rounded out the panel.

Mierenu clarified that the panel was intended to be a celebration of two great shows, but “vs. is in the air!” That said, they decided to go with a friendly debate. “Please don’t hit me, Batman,” Payton joked. “And for goodness sake, please don’t hit me, Wonder Woman.”

Throughout the presentation, chosen topics of discussion were accompanied by clips from each show, as selected by Ferranti and Patterson. The first topic was titled “Your Parents Are Only Looking Out For You,” featuring a “Young Justice” clip of Superboy attempting to bond with Superman, and a clip of Old Bruce Wayne with Older Terry McGinnis. “I feel like this whole debate is rigged,” quipped Payton.
