Young Justice #2

The second issue of Young Justice picks up with our young heroes transported to Gemworld. The primary story here is Wonder Girl starring down the barrel of Jinny Hex's shotgun, and forming a shaky truce. Wonder Girl's recent past is also explored here a bit, including her run-in with Zeus and explaining a bit about why Cassie was slow to initially join the fight that led the teen heroes to Gemworld.

From what we see in Young Justice #2 it's apparent that this first arc of the relaunched Young Justice title is going to jump around quite a bit, filling in some back story while also bringing the heroes together in Gemworld and exploring their new surroundings.

Even though his appearance offered to the cliffhanger leading into this issue, we'll have to wait another month for more on Superboy. That said, this issue fleshes out Cassie fairly well and offers some fun moments between Wonder Girl and some of the new heroes (even if Teen Lantern gets less time than Jinny or Cassie). Worth a look.
