Young Justice #14

Things are getting a bit crowded. Foreshadowed at the end of the previous issue, Young Justice #14 catches up with Impulse recruiting other young heroes for Young Justice's fight against. S.T.A.R. Labs. Looking to include as many characters from various versions of the team as possible, the latest issue features panels of Impulse recruiting the likes of Aqualad, Spoiler, Arrowette, and Sideways to go along with the current team, Naomi, the Wonder Twins, and Dial H for Hero.

In terms of an event comic, there's some fun here (particularly in Bart's recruitment). Once assembled the comic feels a bit rushed with the combined heroes making short work of what Dr. Glory can throw in their path. The evil scientist is also thwarted in Skartaris where some late-arriving help prevents Superboy from getting skewered by a Kryptonite sword.

The size of the group gets a bit out of control here, with several characters getting lost. As the dust settles, I'll be curious to see who actually sticks around. Worth a look.
