Season 1[edit]

Independence Day[edit]

(Freeze is attacking pick-nickers in Gotham City park)
Freeze: The Boy Wonder. The Bat sent you to drag me off to prison. Frankly, I'm underwhelmed.
Robin: Great, but I'm kinda in a hurry here.
Freeze: Kids. Always in such a rush. I prefer to preserve these moments... forever.
Robin: I'm not talking to you.
[Batman arrives with a flying punch to Freeze's face]

(Flash and Kid Flash just defeated Captain Cold)
Flash: Stealing ice? Really? Isn't that a big cliché for even Captain Cold?

Spectator #1: I see Flash and Flash Jr.
Spectator #2: His name is Speedy.
Spectator #3: No, Speedy’s Green Arrow’s sidekick.
Spectator #4: Well that makes no sense.

Fireman: It's whats-his-name. Flash Boy!
Kid Flash: Kid Flash! Why is that so hard?

(Batman, Aquaman, Flash, and Green Arrow arrive at the Hall of Justice with their protègès: Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash and Speedy)
Kid Flash: Have all four sidekicks ever been in the same place at the same time?
Speedy: Don’t call us sidekicks. Not after today.
Kid Flash: First time at the Hall. I’m a little overwhelmed.
Robin: You’re overwhelmed, Freeze was underwhelmed-why isn’t anyone ever just whelmed?
[They enter the Hall]
Robin: Oh, maybe that’s why.

[Speedy, Robin, Aqualad and Kid Flash aren't allowed to be part of the Justice League briefing]
Green Arrow: Roy, you just need to be patient.
Speedy: What I need is respect. They're treating us like kids. Worse, like sidekicks! (to the other sidekicks after they don't say anything)You're kidding, right?! You're playing their game?! Why?! Because you think they play fair? Today was supposed to be the day, step one in becoming full-fledged members of the League.
Kid Flash: Well, sure, but I thought step one was the tour of the HQ.
Speedy: Except the Hall isn't the League's real HQ. I bet they never told you it's just a false front for tourists and a pit stop for catching zeta-beam teleporter-tubes to the real thing, an orbiting satellite called the Watchtower.
[Batman gives Green Arrow a look]
Green Arrow: I know, I know, but I thought we could make an exception.(Batman continues to glare) Or not.
Aquaman: You're not helping your cause here, son. Stand down or...
Speedy: Or what? You'll send me to my room? And I'm not your son!(directed at Green Arrow) I'm not even his. (directed at everyone else) I thought I was his partner, but not anymore.
(Speedy walks out)

(the adults have walked away to discuss a mission)
Aqualad: What else aren't they telling us?
Robin: I have a better question: Why didn't we leave with Speedy?

(the adults have left the Hall to go on a mission and have just mentioned Cadmus Labs as a priority after the other mission)
Robin: But if Batman's suspicious... maybe we should investigate.
Aqualad: Solve their case before they do. It would be poetic justice.
Robin: Hey they're all about justice.
Aqualad: But they said "stay put."
Kid Flash: (to Robin) Wait. Are-are you going to Cadmus? Because if you're going, I'm going!
(they both look at Aqualad)
Aqualad: Just like that? We're a team on a mission?
Robin: We didn't come for a play-date.

(Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad have arrived at Cadmus and have asked to look around)
Mark Desmond: You realize once we get in there, we can't ever let them leave.
Guardian: Doc, these aren't your typical meddling kids. You don't want to get on the wrong side of the Justice League.
Mark Desmond: Better than getting on the wrong side of the Cadmus Directors. Believe me.

(the kids are being chased by Cadmus security and go into a room without an exit)
Robin: I disabled the door, we're safe.
Aqualad: We're trapped.

(the kids found Superboy in a cryogenic tube in the room they're hiding in)
Kid Flash: Big K little R, the atomic symbol for Krypton. Clone?
Aqualad: Robin. Hack!
Robin: Right. Right.

(after finding the Super-clone)
Kid Flash: They're making a slave out of-well, Superman's son.
Aqualad: Now we contact the League.


(Superboy is guarding/staring at Aqualad, Kid Flash and Robin)
Kid Flash: [to Superboy] What? What do you want? Quit staring. You're creeping me out.
Robin: Uh, KF, how about we not tick off the guy who can fry us with a look?

Superboy: Wha-what if he wasn't?
Kid Flash: He can talk?
Superboy: Yes, he can.
Kid Flash: Not like I said, "it."
Aqualad: The genomorph taught you.
Superboy: They taught me much. I can read, write. I know the names of things.
Robin: But have you seen them? Have they actually let you see the sky or the moon?
Superboy: Images are implanted in my mind, but no. I have not seen them.
Aqualad: Do you know what you are, who you are?
Superboy: I am the Superboy, a genomorph, a clone made from the DNA of the Superman, created to replace him should he perish, to destroy him should he turn from the light.
Aqualad: To be like Superman is a worthy aspiration, but, like Superman, you deserve a life of your own beyond that solar suit, beyond your pod, beyond Cadmus.
Superboy: I live because of Cadmus! It is my home!
Robin: Your home is a test tube. We can show you the sun.
Kid Flash: Uh, pretty sure it's after midnight, but we can show you the moon.
Aqualad: We can show you, introduce you to Superman.
Mark Desmond: No they can't!

Mark Desmond: Activate the cloning process.
Robin: Pass! Batcave's crowded enough.

(telepathically while being tortured)
Aqualad: Superboy, you live. That gives you the right to follow your own path. A weapon or a person, the choice is yours, but ask yourself, "What would Superman do?"

(Superboy reenters the containment room)
Kid Flash: You here to help us or fry us?
Superboy: Huh. I don't seem to have heat vision, so I suppose helping is my only option.

(after being freed from the handcuffs and containment pod)
Robin: Finally. Lucky Batman isn't here. He'd have my head for taking so long.
Kid Flash: Seriously?! That's what you're worried about? The whole League'll have our heads after tonight!

Mark Desmond: You'll never get out of here! I'll have you back in pods before morning.
Robin: That guy is not whelmed. Not whelmed at all.
Kid Flash: What is with you and this whelmed thing?

(the genomorphs have subdued the escaping heroes telepathically)
Dubbilex: Perhaps for the sake of all genomorphs, our brother Superboy should make up his own mind.
Superboy: It was you.
Dubbilex: Yes, brother. I set the fire and lured your new friends into Cadmus, woke them when they were in danger...
Superboy: And guided me. Why?
Dubbilex: Because you are our hope, the genomorph hero. you will blaze a trail for all our brothers, showing us the way to freedom. What is your choice, brother?
Superboy: I... choose... freedom.
Guardian: (after being relieved of telepathic control) Feels... like fog... lifting.
Aqualad: Guardain?
Guardian: Go, I'll take care of Desmond.

(Mark Desmond, now Blockbuster has just torn a hole in the ceiling)
Kid Flash: You think Labcoat planned that?
Aqualad: I doubt he is planning anything anymore.

(Cadmus has been destroyed and the heroes are free)
Kid Flash: See? The Moon!
(the League arrives)
Kid Flash: And Superman. Do we keep our promises, or what?
Batman: [looking at Superboy] Is that what I think it is?
Kid Flash: He doesn't like being called an "it."
Superboy: I'm Superman's clone!
Batman: ...Start talking.

(Superman is in conversation with Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter then walks over to Superboy)
Superman: We'll, a, we'll figure something out for you. The League will I mean. For now I better make sure they get the Blockbuster creature squared away.
(flies away)

(Batman, Flash and Aquaman come over to the teens)
Batman: Cadmus will be investigated, all 52 levels. But let's make one thing clear:
Flash: You should have called us.
Batman: End results aside, we're not happy. You hacked Justice League systems, disobeyed direct orders, and endangered lives. You will not be doing this again.
Aqualad: I am sorry, but we will.
Aquaman: Aqualad, stand down.
Aqualad: Apologies, my king, but no. We did good work here tonight, the work you trained us to do. Together on our own we forged something powerful, important.
Flash: If this is about your treatment at the Hall, the three of you...
Kid Flash: The four of us, and it's not.
Robin: Batman, we're ready to do what you taught us, or why teach us at all?
Superboy: Why let them tell us what to do? It's simple. Get on board or get out of the way.

(discussing the new covert team for the kids)
Flash: The League will still handle the obvious stuff. There's a reason we have these big targets on our chest.
Aquaman: But Cadmus proves the bad guys are getting smarter. Batman needs a team that can operate on the sly.
Batman: The five of you will be that team.
Robin: Cool! Wait. Five?
(Ms Martian enters)
Batman: This is the Martian Manhunter's niece. Ms. Martian.

Robin: Hey Superboy come meet Ms. M!
(Superboy walks over to the rest of the team; Ms. Martian uses her shape-shifting ability to change her shirt color to black)
Ms. Martian: I like your t-shirt.
(Superboy gives her a small smile)

(The Light discusses the result of Project Cadmus' exposure.)
L-1: Can the Light afford to leave Guardian in charge without the G-nomes?
L-3: We have subtle means of control. What concerns me is the children. We now know the League is employing young heroes to do their dirty work. Huh, that's a dark twist.
L-1: Yes...But one that can be played to our advantage. Even the temporary loss of the weapon may prove useful. Eventually, everyone sees the Light.

Welcome to Happy Harbor[edit]

(Robin has just invited Speedy to join The Team)
Robin: So, Speedy, you in?
Speedy: Pass. I'm done letting Arrow and the League tell me what to do. I don't need a baby-sitter or a clubhouse to hang out with the other kids. Your Junior Justice League is a joke. Something to keep you busy and in your place. I don't want any part of it!

(the Team is wanting to go on a mission)
Red Tornado: Mission assignments are the Batman's responsiblity.
Robin: But it's been over a week and nothing...
Red Tornado: You'll be tested soon enough. For the time being, simply enjoy each other's company.
Aqualad: This team is not a social club.
Red Tornado: No. But I am told social interaction is an important team-building excersize. Perhaps you can keep busy by familiarizing yourselves with the cave.

Kid Flash: Can you do that ghosting through walls thing Manhunter does?
Miss Martian: Density shifting? No, it's a very advanced technique...
Robin: Flash can vibrate his molecules right through a wall. (chuckles) When he tries it, bloody nose.
Kid Flash: Dude!

(discussing secret identities)
Miss Martian: [telepathically] Don't worry, Superboy. We'll find you an Earth name too.
Miss Martian: [telepathically] What's wrong? I- I don't understand. Everyone on Mars communicates telepathically.
Aqualad: M'Gann, stop! Things are different of Earth. Here, your powers are an extreme invasion of privacy!
Kid Flash: Besides, Cadmus's creepy little psychic genomes left a bad taste in his brain.
Miss Martian: I-I didn't mean to...
Superboy: Just... stay... out!

Aqualad: And your clothes?
Miss Martian: They're organic like the ship, they respond to my mental commands.
Superboy: As long as they're the only ones.

(about Superboy)
Robin: He'll come around.
Miss Martian: He doesn't seem to like me very much.
Kid Flash: You guys remember he has super hearing?

Kid Flash: You brought your utility belt?
Robin: Never leave home without it. First thing Batman taught me.
Kid Flash: Right after don't go to the bathroom without it.

Brom: I was prepared to be challenged by a superhero. I was not, however, expecting children.
Robin: We're not children!
Brom: Objectively, you are. Have you no adult supervision? I find your presence here quite disturbing.

(Mister Twister makes lightning strike)
Kid Flash: Uh, can red Tornado... do that?
Brom: You think I'm Tornado? Ironic.

(the Team has just been defeated by Mr. Twister)
Superboy: [to Miss Martian] You tricked us into thinking Twister was Red Tornado.
Aqualad: She didn't do it on purpose.
Robin: It-it was a rookie mistake. We shouldn't have listened to her.
Kid Flash: You are pretty inexperienced. Hit the showers. We'll take it from here.
Superboy: Stay out of our way.
(Robin, Kid Flash and Superboy walk away)
Miss Martian: I was just trying to be part of the team.
Aqualad: To be honest, I'm not sure we have a team.

Robin: [after M'Gann drops a boulder on Mr. Twister] Don't know how things are done on Mars, but on Earth we don't EXECUTE our captives!
Miss Martian: You said you trust me. [Lifts the boulder to reveal an android] That's why I couldn't read his mind.
Kid Flash: Cool souvenir.

(after the battle with Mr. Twister, when Red Tornado didn't step in to help)
Kid Flash: Batman, Aquaman, Flash, they'd all have jumped right in to fix things.
Robin: Guess if we're going to have a baby-sitter, heartless machine is exactly what we need.
Kid Flash: DUDE! Harsh!
Red Tornado: And inaccurate. I have a heart, carbon-steel alloy. I also have excellent hearing.
Robin: Right. I'll strive to be... more accurate.
Aqualad: And more respectful.


(while en-route to their first official mission Robin is flashing back on the debrief)
Robin: So who's in charge?
[Batman and Red Tornado exchange glances]
Batman: Work that out between you.

Kid Flash: Hey, Supey, not too late to put on the new stealth tech.
Superboy: No capes, no tights. No offense.
Miss Martian: It totally works for you. In that you can totally do good work in those clothes.

(after disembarking from the Bio-Ship)
Superboy: Knew I didn't need a line.
Robin: And yet, creating a seismic event may not have helped us much with the 'covert'.

Aqualad: We need to identify that buyer.
Kid Flash: Just what I was thinking.
Robin: Yeah. You're the thinker.
Kid Flash: Sarcasm? Dude. A real leader would focus on getting answers.

Superboy: Did you hear that?
Kid Flash: Uh, no... Wait! Is this a super-hearing thing?
Miss Martian: You do have great ears.
Kid Flash: Okay, Rob, now what? [realized Robin disappeared] Man, I hate it when he does that!

(about Bane)
Kid Flash: So. Now 'El Luchador' is our leader.

(the Team has partnered with Bane in order to get into the factory making the Venom)
Bane: (Robin has disappeared) Has that little fool already been captured?
Aqualad: No. He just does that.
Kid Flash: Stay put. I'll get our intel and be back before Boy Wonder.
(Runs off)
Aqualad: Wait. Kid!

(the Team and Bane have been defeated and are retreating through the hidden tunnels going out of the factory)
Robin: How can my first mission as leader go so wrong?
Aqualad: You do have the most experience. But perhaps that is exactly what has left you unprepared. Fighting alongside Batman, your roles are clearly defined. You two do not need to talk. But this team is new. And a leader needs to be clear, explicit. He cannot vanish and expect others to play part in an unknown plan.
Robin: Oh, so I'm supposed to hold everyone's hand? (groans) Who am I kidding? You should lead us, Kaldur. You're the only who can.

(Aqualad has been unanimously elected Team leader)
Aqualad: Then I accept the burden. (to Robin) Until you are ready to lift it from my shoulders. You were born to lead this team. Maybe not now- but soon.

Kobra: Batman must be desperate, if he sends whelp to task me.
Robin: What's wrong, Koby? You look disconcerted.
Kobra: This is beneath me. Shimmer, take him.

Robin: I know you hate getting your hands dirty.
Kobra: True, but sometimes even a god must stoop to conquer. (brushes Robin aside) What's wrong boy? You look disconcerted.

Kobra: I am plagued by mosquitoes!
Robin: Good, because this mosquito is mighty concerted over your pain!

(the Kobra has escaped into the woods and the fighting is over)
Robin: We picked the right guy to lead. Automatically making you the right guy to explain this mess to Batman!

Batman: A simple recon mission. Observe and report! You'll each receive written evaluations detailing your many mistakes... Until then - good job... No battle plan survives first contact with the enemy. How you adjust to the unforeseen is what determines success. And how you choose who leads determines character.

Sportsmaster: All I managed to recover is a single vial of Cobra-Venom.
L-6: The formula can be reverse-engineered, but what of these heroes? First Cadmus, then Mister Twister, now Santa Prisca.
L-1: Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, but three times is enemy action. And enemies of the Light must not stand.


(while trying to save a school bus Superboy's landing destabilizes a bus already in a precarious situation)
Superman: We don't yet know the limits of your powers.
Superboy: Well, maybe you could, you know, help me figure that out.
Superman: ...Batman's got that covered.
Superboy: I know, but...
Superman: [Superman receives a call on his JL communicator] Superman. Wait. Arrow, slow down. What's attacking?... No, I'm definitely available. Coordinates?... Acknowledged; on my way... Sorry, Super... boy. Duty calls.
(Superman flies off cut to Bruce Wayne in his office)
Superman: Already on it Bruce.
Bruce Wayne: I know Clark, we need to talk.
(Superman disconnects his communicator and continues flying)

(Black Canary is giving instruction as the Team's new combat instructor)
Black Canary: Now, combat is about controlling conflict. Putting the battle on your terms. You should always be acting, never reacting.

Kid Flash: After this--swish--I'll show you my moves. (Black Canary knocks him down) Oww. Hurts so good.
Black Canary: Good block. But did anyone see what he did wrong?
Robin: Ooh, ooh. He hit on teacher and got served?
Kid Flash: Dude!
Black Canary: He allowed me to dictate the terms of...
Superboy: Oh please. With my powers, the battle's always on my terms. I'm a living weapon. And this is a waste of my time.
Black Canary: Prove it.
(Superboy and Black Canary spar and Superboy goes down)

(Batman has briefed the Team on being security for the transportation of AMAZO)
Superboy: So now we take out your trash?
Batman: You had something better to do?

Robin: If dislike is the opposite of like, is disaster the opposite of aster? See, if things are going wrong, they go right... Uh, clearly you're not feeling the aster. What's wrong?
Superboy: Canary. And what business does she have teaching combat skills to a guy with super-strength?
Robin: Taking down stronger guys is part of the gig. Canary learned that the hard way. Same with Batman - and, well - me.

(Professor Ivo's MONQIS arrive and latch on to the truck carrying AMAZO)
Superboy: I hate monkeys.
Robin: Hey. Hey. Switch your ride to Battle Mode.
Superboy: No point.
(Superboy jumps off his bike and onto the armored car)
Robin: Or not.

(Superboy has ditched his comm and Robin)
Robin: Definitely a disaster. Heavy on the 'dis.'

(in a Metropolis diner)
Clark Kent: Apple pie.
Bruce Wayne: The Devil's Food
Bruce Wayne: The boy needs you.
Clark Kent: No. He needs you. He needs Red. I'm just a constant reminder of what he's not.
Bruce Wayne: Sorry, Clark, but you're dead wrong. Look, I know he troubles you. But he's here. You have to get over the how and why. Trust me on this. This boy needs his father.
Clark Kent: I'm not his father! I'll take that apple pie to go.

Professor Ivo: Oh, hello.
Superboy: You? You're Ivo? I'm whelmed.
Professor Ivo: You're one to talk. Since when does the big blue boy scout have a brat?
Superboy: He doesn't.
Professor Ivo: Well, if you say so...
Superboy:Give me your best shot.
Professor Ivo: Please, my android has the strength of Superman. What chance do you have?
[Superboy attacks Amazo. Amazo counterattacks sending Superboy flying back]
Professor Ivo: Oh, sorry. Did that strike a nerve? Amazo, strike a few more.

Robin: So you changed too.
Kid Flash: You kidding? Ugh. I feel naked in civvies. You still tracking the parts?
Robin: They were heading through Gotham, but they veered. Wait! Dude, they're at my school!

(the rest of the Team have arrived and are joining Superboy in battling AMAZO)
Miss Martian: Superboy! Are you all right?
Superboy: Fine. (looking at Robin) Feeling the aster.
(AMAZO is down and Ivo has escaped)
Robin: Help me disassemble him! NOW!
Kid Flash: Dude. The guy has no head.
Aqualad: Don't take any chances!

Batman: Complications come with the job. Your ability to handle them has impressed the League.
Superboy: The whole League?
Batman: Given time, yes. Kryptonians, as you know, have very hard heads
Batman: Of course, there's no shame in asking for help. That's why the League exists. Because there's some problems even we can't handle individually.
Robin: Please, if we needed help, we'd never get the chance to ask.
[Pulls out an arrow. Green Arrow takes out one of his arrows and compares the two]
Robin: Look familiar? You were following us. Baby-sitting! YOU STILL DON'T TRUST US!
Batman: We didn't follow you.
(Green Arrow pulls an arrow out and the tip is different then the one Robin has)
Robin: And that's not your arrow... But that means...
Kid Flash: Speedy!
Aqualad: He has our backs.


Red Arrow: Dr. Roquette?
Dr. Roquette: Tell me you're the advanced guy.
Red Arrow: The only guy.
Dr. Roquette: You couldn't bring back up? What? Were there budget cuts?
(henchman are trying to bust down the door)
Red Arrow: Now or never, doc.
Dr. Roquette: [about a device] We can't leave this.
Red Arrow: Look, I take it, or I take you.
Dr. Roquette: Right. Take me.
Dr. Roquette: So what do you call this, the Arrow-boat?
Red Arrow: I call it a rental.

(Green Arrow has just introduced Artemis to the team)
Green Arrow: Um, she's my new protégé.
Kid Flash: Wha-what happened to your old one?
Computer: Recognize. Speedy. B-06.
Red Arrow: Well for starters, he doesn't go by Speedy any more. Call me Red Arrow.
Green Arrow: Roy - you look...
Red Arrow: Replaceable.

(telepathic conversation while guarding Dr. Roquette)
Robin: You might cut her some slack. It was her arrow that saved your butt against Amazo.
Kid Flash: What? No! That was Speedy's—I mean, Red Arrow's—arrow. Right?
Robin: Not so much.
Kid Flash: Hmph. Well, still not giving her the satisfaction.
Artemis: You know, I can still hear you!
(Kid Flash groans)
Dr. Roquette: I couldn't get the Justice League.
(telepathic about Superboy)
Artemis: Mmm...that boy.
Miss Martian: He can hear you. We can all hear you.
Artemis: Oh, I know.
Miss Martian: You embarrassed Superboy.
Artemis: Didn't hear him say that.
Miss Martian: Must you challenge everyone?
Artemis: Where I come form, that's how you survive.
Kid Flash: (to Artemis) This was all your fault. You were on the perimeter! How'd that Shadow get in?
Miss Martian: That's not really fair. I was outside too.
Kid Flash: (to Miss Martian) Outside being distracted by her. Besides I can't be mad at you.
Kid Flash: You gave me mouth-to-mouth.
Miss Martian, Aqualad, Artemis: We heard that!
Kid Flash: Dang it!
Aqualad: Stop it, both of you!
Kid Flash, Artemis: What?
Aqualad: I can hear you glaring!

(the team has split up to find the kidnapped Dr. Roquette and Artemis has caught up with the 'Shadow')
Cheshire: (to Artemis) I suppose now you bring me to justice. Let your new friends interrogate me. I wonder if your position's secure enough to survive them learning everything I know.
(Long pause. Artemis lowers her bow)
Cheshire: Didn't think so. So like the Cheshire Cat, I'll just disappear.

(later after Dr. Roquette has been saved and the danger has been stopped)
Robin: Yes! The infiltrators have been out-filtrated!

Red Arrow: (to Artemis) Nice move. Almost made me believe you are Green Arrow's niece. But we both know you're not. I'm sure G.A. and Bats had a reason for lying so your cover's safe. But I warn you: do not hurt my friends!

(the Light is discussing the what went down with Dr. Roquette)
L-2: Once again the young... heroes interfere. So it's fortunate that we have an operative... on the inside.


Madame Xanadu: Then madame will make contact, if fate be kind.
Kent Nelson: But he so rarely is.

(watching Superboy and Aqualad spar in the cave)
Artemis: Kaldur's uh, nice, don't you think? Handsome, commanding. You should totally ask him out.
Miss Martian: He's like a big brother to me. But you know who would make the cutest couple? You and Wally. You're so full of passion and he's so full of...
Artemis: It.

(the Team are asking Red Tornado for a mission)
Red Tornado: This is Kent Nelson, a friend. He is 106 years old...
Kid Flash: Guy doesn't look a day over 90.
Red Tornado:...and he has been missing for twenty-three days. Kent was a charter member of the Justice Society, the precursor to your mentors' Justice League.
Aqualad: Of course. Nelson was Earth's sorcerer supreme! He was Doctor Fate!
Kid Flash: (scoffs) More like "Doctor Fake." Guy knows a little advanced science and "Dumbledores" it up to scare the bad guys and impress the babes.
(everyone turns and glares at him)

Kent Nelson: [holographic message] Greetings. You have entered with a key. But the tower does not recognize you. Please state your purpose and intent.
Kid Flash: We are true believers here to find Dr. Fate.
[the team falls through the floor towards a lava pit]
Miss Martian: Having trouble. Maintaining altitude... I'm so hot.
Kid Flash: You certainly are.
Artemis: WALLY!
Kid Flash: Hey! Inches about sizzling death. I'm entitled to speak my mind.

(the Team get out of the trap but Superboy's boots were lost in the lava)
Superboy: Those were my favorite boots! This Nelson guy better be worth it.

(after lying about believing in magic results in the lava trap)
Kid Flash: Fine! Fine! I lied about believing in magic. But magic is the real lie, a major load

Miss Martian: I don't understand Wally. It's almost like he needs to believe the impossible can't happen.
Aqualad: Wally uses his understanding of science to control what he cannot comprehend. Acknowledging magic would relinquish the last vestige of that control.

(Kid Flash, Artemis and Kent Nelson have just escaped Klarion in an elevator)
Kid Flash: Right. You're a Lord of Order.
Kent Nelson: Oh, no. Not me. I'm just an old coot Fate used to put on. Until my wife Inza convinced me there was more to life. Ah, she was a real pistol, that Inza. Anywho, Klarion's after the helmet. If he gets his sticky little mitts on it, he'll turn the planet into his own personal playground of pandemonium.
(Kent Nelson has been hit by a blast of magic and Kid Flash now has possesion of the helmet)
Kid Flash: I have no idea what I need to do.
Kent Nelson: [dying] Have faith in what you can't explain. Believe in what you can no longer deny.

(Kid Flash prepares to put the Helmet of Fate on)
Klarion the Witch Boy: Hey, dumb kid. You put that on, you may never get it off!

Klarion the Witch Boy: Give it up, Nabu! Order went out of style in the 20th century.
Doctor Fate: This battle is pointless. You sought to take the helmet before it gained a host. But you are too late.
Klarion the Witch Boy: SHUT IT, YOU OLD FART!

Kid Flash: Yes! That's how we kick it on the earthly plane! Uhh, it's over, right? Why isn't Nabu taking off the Helmet?
Kid Flash: Wait. What happened to you ascending? Seeing Inza?
Kent Nelson: So you believe now, eh? Don't sweat it, kid. I'll spend a few millenia here then see Inza. That's the great thing about eternity, it's eternal.

(back at the Cave the Helmet of Fate is now on a shelf)
Artemis: Wait, you're still claiming there's no such thing as magic? (scoffs) If that's how you feel, why keep it at all?
Kid Flash: ...Souvenir.
Artemis: Geek!

(parting words to Kid Flash)
Kent Nelson: Find your own little spitfire, one who won't let you get away with nothin'.


(arriving at the Cave,the Team is splatered with mud having been in a fight with Clayface)
Batman: I need to talk to Aqualad. The rest of you, hit the showers and head home.
Superboy: "Head home?" I am home.
Aqualad: I am sorry you had to intervene. I know the team performed poorly.
Batman: The team performed adequately. The problem was you. You're their leader, and your head wasn't in the game.
Aqualad: No, you are [sighs] correct. Of late, I am not even convinced I belong on the surface world. For so many years, it filled my every thought. But now that I am here, my dreams are all of Atlantis.
Batman: Atlantis or someone you left behind? You can split your time between the surface and the sea. But not your mind. Either you're here 100% or you need to walk away. Make a, decision, Kaldur, and make it soon.

(later at Wayne manor Dick is upset that Bruce took Aqualad aside to talk with him privately in the backyard Bruce tosses him a basketball)
'Dick Grayson: What's this?
Bruce Wayne: Training. Hand-eye coordination.
Dick Grayson: One on one?
Bruce Wayne: If you think you can handle it.

Tula: Kaldur - I - we - that is...
Kaldur'ahm: I wish you both, nothing but the best.
[Starts to enter the portal]
Kaldur'ahm: Have you ever wondered what would have happened if I had stayed behind and you had become Aqualad?
Garth: No. Never.
Kaldur'ahm: Neither have I.

(to Batman)
Aqualad: I am here. One hundred percent.

Black Manta: I was unable to secure the objective, and was forced to execute plan B.
L-5: You did well. Everything falls into place.


(Robin wakes up alone in a desert)
Robin: OK, better question: what am I doing in Bialya - in - September? What happened to March? Better radio Batman.
Batman: [flashback] Maintain radio silence at all times.
Robin: Or not.

Artemis: Seen Kid Flash on the news. He doesn't wear black.
Kid Flash: Uh, little unclear on that myself. What about you? Green Arrow fixation?
Artemis: [noticing her costume] WHO PUT ME IN THIS?
Kid Flash: Wow. I am not touching that with a 10-foot - uh, so you know how to us that bow?
Artemis: Yeah, my dad taught me... DAD! He must've done this. Another of his stupid tests.
Kid Flash: What kind of test?
Artemis: He probably wants me to kill you.

Miss Martian: [telepathically] Don't worry, I'm almost there.
Artemis: Did you just hear a girl talking in your head?
Kid Flash: Girls are always on my mind, but they're not usually talking.

Kid Flash: (Meeting Miss Martian) Well, J'onn, the costume looks familiar, but I'm not sure the new bod screams 'MANhunter'.

(Robin, Artemis, Miss Martian, and Kid Flash have all met up and are trying to find Superboy and Aqualad)
Robin: This must be his.
[gives an S shield to Miss Martian]
Miss Martian: Yes! Did you see him?
Artemis: I think we did.
Kid Flash: Feral boy? Some teammate. He attacked us.
Artemis: He didn't know who we are. I don't know who we are.
Kid Flash: [playing with his stealth suit activator] This is so cool.
Artemis: We look ridiculous. Quit touching yourself!

Miss Martian: Careful, Superboy, they're hot.
Kid Flash: Not as hot as you Babe.
Miss Martian: Uh, thanks, Wally. That's uh...sweet.
Kid Flash: Not as sweet as you Sugar.
Artemis: Oh, grow up!
Miss Martian: [telepatically to the team] They're testing something - make that someone. - In pain. Hello? Can you hear me?
Psimon: I can. An open mind is a dangerous thing.
Miss Martian: Someone's hacked into our link!
Psimon: Psimon can't see you. Psimon can't touch you. But Psimon can make you all FORGET!

Artemis, Robin, Miss Martian, Kid Flash: Aqualad!
Robin: Where is he? What happened next?
Miss Martian: I don't know. That's the last thing I - we remember.
Kid Flash: We landed 24 hours ago. If Kaldur's been wandering the desert that long, well, that's not good for a guy with gills.
Artemis: I got... confused by um... some old movie I saw the other night. About a ninja girl whose ninja dad ordered her to kill her ninja boyfriend 'cause he was from a rival ninja clan.
Kid Flash: So, I'm your "ninja boyfriend" huh?
Artemis: Hey, amnesia, remember? I completely forgot how truly annoying you are.
Kid Flash: Oh, like you're the Goddess of Congeniality!
Robin: Yeesh! Get a room!

('Superboy enters Miss Martian and Psimon's mental war)
Miss Martian: You're here!
Psimon: (laughs)You sound so relieved. Is that mindless creature supposed to save your mind?
Miss Martian: No. I save his.
(Miss Martian places her forehead on Superboy's and memories start to flash)
Superboy: Kick his butt.
(Superboy disappears from Miss Martian's mind)

(after defeating the soldiers with the help of the alien sphere Superboy re-enters the mental battlefield)
Miss Martian: He's too strong.
Superboy: You're strong. And I'm stubborn. Together!
Miss Martian: Together. (to Psimon) Get... out... of MY HEAD!

(Superboy and Miss Martian return to reality and are about to have a kiss when they're interrupted by the alien sphere)
Superboy: Can I keep it?

Psimon: The martian girl escaped with both the sphere and the Superboy.
L-4: That hardly matters. What matters is the successful test of our new partner's delivery system.
(A monitor shows a Boom-Tube transporting the sphere)
L-4: More tech will come, tech that will put the sphere, and perhaps even Superboy, to shame.


(Red Arrow is at the Rhelasian peace summit and thinks he spots Cheshire in the crowd and asks what her height is)
Aqualad: Cheshire is 1.67 meters.
Red Arrow: What?
Aqualad: She's 5'6" and exceptionally dangerous. Do you require backup?
Red Arrow: Please. The last thing I need is the Junior Justice League.
Aqualad: Just our computer.
(Red Arrow is being held by Rhelasian police for Cheshire's assination attempt of Lex Luthor)
Lex Luthor: Lex Luthor vouches for him, Captain. Release the sidekick.
Red Arrow: Ex-sidekick. And I don't need any favors from you.

(it's Miss Martian and Superboy's first day of school and Martian Manhunter, Aqualad, and Red Tornado are seeing them off)
Miss Martian: Meet Megan Morse. What's your new name?
Superboy: My what?
Martian Manhunter: I chose the name John Jones for myself, and suggested John Smith for Red Tornado. You could be John, too.
Superboy: Pass.
Miss Martian: Connor's has always been my favorite name.
(Superboy shrugs)
Aqualad: A last name will also be required.
Martian Manhunter: Perhaps... Kent.
Miss Martian: Oh! In memory of Dr. Fate. The late Kent Nelson.
Martian Manhunter: Of... course.
Superboy: Ok. Sure. I guess it would be an honor or something.
Miss Martian: Well Conner Kent, time to change your shirt; You don't want to give away your secret identity.
(Superboy takes his shirt off and turns it inside out)
Superboy: Will this work?
Miss Martian: (blushing) Works for me...
Superboy: Wait shouldn't it be Connor Nelson?
(Miss Martian and Superboy leave for school)
Martian Manhunter: They grow up so fast.

(while tracking Cheshire Red Arrow is thrown off a roof and into a river by Ra's al Ghul)
Red Arrow: [to his communicator] It's me. I may... possibly... be in over my head.

(discussing the Rhelasian conflict in school)
Conner Kent: But why are they fighting? They're all humans... I mean Rhelasians, right?
Lucas Carr: Right on both counts, actually.
Megan Morse: [telepathically to Conner] It's no different on Mars. The White Martian minority are treated like second-class citizens by the Green majority. Of course, I'm green but that doesn't make it right.

Red Arrow: [to Aqualad] Take Sportsmaster. Cheshire's mine!
Cheshire: So territorial. And only our third date.
Sportsmaster: (to Aqualad) Let's just say, I have an inside source. Very inside.

Red Arrow: I can't believe we just did a solid for Lex Luthor.
Aqualad: Not for Luthor - for peace.

Red Arrow: Do you really think there's a mole on your team?
Aqualad: I cannot rule out the possibility. I will investigate... quietly.
Red Arrow: Not tell them?
Aqualad: I do not want the unit unraveling over baseless suspicions. If there is a mole, I do not wish to tip him or her off.

Lex Luthor: That went well. Both Li and Sheng were quite impressed with Merci's equipment and are quite literally buying into the peace. Our plan to ensure the eventual reunification of Rhelasa, under LexCorp's political and ecomonic guidance is a success.
Ra's Al Ghul: And thus, another corner of the world sees the Light.


Tommy Terror: [after a collar is put on him] That don't feel right... My strength - but I done just gone toe-to-toe with Superman.
Superboy: Congratulations. That's more quality time than he's ever given me.

(Miss Martian and Superboy are going under at Belle Reve Penitentiary as the Terror Twins, they're currently enroute with Icicle Jr. and Mr Freeze)
Icicle Jr.: Reeks when your dad is the man, you know?
Superboy: Believe me, I know.
Icicle Jr.: (to an undercover Superboy) So, tell me about your sister.
Superboy: What? She's a pain. Why?
Icicle Jr.: Dude, she's hot. You can't see it 'cause your family. But I look at her and I think, 'That chick gets me.' And really, that's all you need-- someone who sees the psycho that you are and likes you anyway.
Superboy: Yeah, you're like, an evil genius.
Icicile Jr.: Word.

(Miss Martian was frozen in ice and is now free)
Superboy: Are you -?
Miss Maritan: It's pretty cold where I come from. I'll be-
(Superboy kisses Miss Martian. Icicle Jr doesn't know they're both in disguises)
Icicle Jr.: Dude! That's your sister.
(M'Gann and Superboy continue to kiss. M'Gann reveals her true appearance)
Icicle Jr.: What?... Wait. Is she? - And are you?... Oh, Dad's gonna kill me!

Hugo Strange: Belle Reve will be fully operational by tomorrow. All prisoners are accounted for, except the Riddler, who somehow did manage to escape during the confusion. Still, you must be disappointed.
Icicle Sr.: Me? After the risk you took smuggling our tech inside, you had nearly as much invested in the break as we did. It's a shame we got beat, but the main objectives were all reached.
(They shake hands)
Hugo Strange: The Light should be quite pleased.


(it's Artemis first day at Gotham Academy)
Dick Grayson: We'll laugh about this someday.
(Dick takes a picture with himself and Artemis. Then runs off)
Artemis: Uh, who was that?
Bette Kane: A Freshman. Ignore him.
Barbara Gordon: Dick. What was that about?
Dick Grayson: Nothing Barbara, just being friendly to the new girl.
Robin: Artemis?
Artemis: [shocked] Robin! I uh...
Robin: How random that you're in Gotham City, instead of Star City where your uncle, Green Arrow lives?
Artemis: I'm... uh, here to see my cousin. She was in the state spelling bee. Here... In Gotham... City.
Robin: C-O-O-L. Did she W-I-N?
Artemis: N-O.
Robin: D-R-A-G.

Aqualad: I cannot be sure if one exists. And if it does, the team is being betrayed from within. I must investigate without tipping my hand. But perhaps I should tell Batman.
Red Tornado: Generally, the Batman prefers the team to handle its own problems, but it's your decision. I will return after monitor duty on the Watchtower.
Aqualad: I thought you were exempt from monitor duty since becoming our... den mother.
Red Tornado: I agreed to cover for Green Arrow. He has a interpersonal event with Black Canary-- a "hot date."

(Artemis and Robin arrive at the Cave and are immediately attacked)
Artemis: Who are we fighting?
Robin: Don't know, but we're sitting ducks by the tubes. Head for the exit!
(They run for the exit and encounter a tidal wave)
Robin: Or not.
(Artemis and Robin are reviewing the security video footage)
Robin: That's it. All four are dead.
Artemis: (looks appalled)
Robin: The cameras, I meant the cameras! I'm sure the others are fine.
Artemis: What do we do now?
Robin: We save them. That's how it works.
Artemis: Maybe that's how it's supposed to work, but those robots already took out our four super-powered friends.
Robin: You seem distraught.
Artemis: M'gann is dying. We have no powers and I'm down to my last arrow. Of course I'm distraught!
Robin: Well get traught or get dead!
Artemis: How can you be so calm?
Robin: Practice. I've been doing this since I was nine
(attempting to escape through the library)
Robin: There's a secret passage behind one of these bookcases.
Artemis: Seriously? Cliché much?
Robin: You should see the Batcave.
Red Torpedo: Artemis. Robin.
Artemis: [comes out from their hiding place] It's Red Tornado!
[Artemis encounters Red Torpedo. Red Torpedo attacks. Robin saves her]
Robin: Yes, on the red. No, on the Tornado.
Robin: We can access the hangar from here.
[a tidal wave appears]
Robin: Or not
Artemis: Will you please stop saying that?

Alpha Male[edit]

Aqualad: (quietly to Batman) Sportsmaster revealed the possibility of a mole within the team. In light of last night's attack, Red Tornado would appear to be the traitor. But whether he betrayed us willingly or was preprogrammed is still...
Superboy: (launches himself at Aqualad) YOU KNEW? That android and his maniac family nearly killed M'Gann!
Miss Martian: Conner, what are you doing?
Superboy: Kaldur knew we had a traitor among us and said nothing!
Robin: You knew?
Kid Flash: And didn't tell us?

Robin: Batman, please, tell me you're not sending us on this joke of a wild ape chase.
Batman: I never joke... about the mission.

Robin: You're coming with us?
Captain Marvel: Sure. We'll have a blast.
Robin: [to Kid Flash] Translation: he blames us for the red fiasco.
[Aqualad walks by]
Robin: He doesn't trust us.
Kid Flash: [looks at Aqualad] It's a big club.

Robin: The three of us started this team because the Justice League was keeping secrets from us.
Kid Flash: Or did you forget like you forgot to tell us about the mole?

Superboy: Come on. I'll keep you safe.
Miss Martian: [telepathically] You're my boyfriend, Conner. Not my keeper. Stop hanging on me like a character from a 70's sitcom.

(After everyone's gone)

Captain Marvel: (To Aqualad) Um, did I miss the part where you actually SAID what the plan was?

Robin: Thought vultures only ate dead meat.
Kid Flash: Yeah. These are some very proactive scavengers.
Robin: Proactive and super-sized. You thinking what I'm thinking?
Kid Flash: Cobra venom? Yeah!

Artemis: Okay. Nearly drowning two nights in a row is way less fun than it sounds.

Captain Marvel: Actually, you let everyone split up before communications were set.
Aqualad: They would not listen
Captain Marvel: I guess. But back at the cave, Batman stopped everyone from fighting with just one word.
Aqualad: Because Batman is... Batman.

Aqualad: Miss Martian, I need a telepathic link-up with the entire team, now.
Miss Martian: Link established.
Artemis: Should he really still be giving us orders, and should YOU really be following them?
Aqualad: Please...
Kid Flash: Oh good, Aqualad's voice in my head. I've so missed that.
Robin: Hey, Kal'dur! KF and I were attacked by giant vultures. 'Course, since we're moles, you probably think we attacked ourselves.
Artemis: If he did, he wouldn't tell you.
Miss Martian: Superboy, are you online, or just pouting?
Superboy: (Fighting a giant wolf) Busy. Call back later.
Kid Flash: What gets me is how nonchalant is is about not telling us.
Robin: He should be chalant. Way chalant. Extremely chalant!
Artemis: How are we supposed to be a team if he doesn't trust us with his secrets?
Miss Martian: Or if Conner doesn't expect us to take care of ourselves?
Kid Flash: (To robin) Did he really think you or I could've been the mole?
Robin: We've known each other for years!
Artemis: Trust is a two-way street!
Miss Martian: And you'd know they'd hate it if we kept secrets from them!
Artemis: Not that we'd ever do that. ever.
Aqualad: Enough!... Captain Marvel has been captured. And we must act as a team to save him!
Kid Flash: Heh. Under your leadership? I don't think...
Aqualad: This is not up for debate! You all chose me to lead. When this mission is over, if you wish to select a new leader I will happily step down. But until that time, I am in command here!

Artemis: What are you grinning about?
Kid Flash: One word: souvenir.
[Puts a beret on]
Artemis: Two words: gorilla lice.
Kid Flash: Huh? [removes the beret] Oh man!
Superboy: [about a wolf] Can I keep him?
Kid Flash: First the sphere, now this beast. Dude, you sure make a habit of collecting strays.
Miss Martian: Maybe because he's such a stray himself.
Robin: Look, I need to know, why did you keep the mole intel secret?
[pause, everyone stares at Aqualad]
Aqualad: The source of the tip was Sportsmaster.
Artemis: WHAT? You can't trust him!
Aqualad: I do not. It seemed possible even likely that he was attempting to divide the team with false information.
Robin: And given how the mission went, he almost succeeded. But you had to consider it might be true.
Aqualad: Yes, as leader, I did. In which case, I did not wish to alert the traitor.
Robin: I hate to say it, but it makes sense.
Aqualad: I am still prepared to step down.
Kid Flash: [raising his hand] All in favor of keeping Aqualad as leader.
[everyone raises their hand]
Captain Marvel: Guess it's unanimous.

(regarding Superboy's new pet wolf)
Kid Flash: Well, he's gonna need a name. How's about Krypto?
Superboy: Pass.
Miss Martian: Besides, isn't that taken?

(Captain Marvel flies through the window)

Uncle Dudley: Well, sport, how'd it go?
Captain Marvel: Oh, it was so cool. The Team's way more fun to hang out with than the League! They go on these secret covert-ops missions that rock! And I got nabbed by the Brain, and I met this tiger, and...
Uncle Dudley: Okay, I'm glad you had fun sport, but it's getting pretty late. Brush your teeth and hit the hay.
Captain Marvel: Okay, okay, I'm going.
Uncle Dudley: Ahem. Aren't you... forgetting something?
Captain Marvel: Nah, just seeing if you were paying attention. SHAZAM! (Get struck by lightning, and turns into a kid)
Billy Batson: Good night, Uncle Dudley.
Uncle Dudley: Good night, Billy.


Robin: [about Superboy and Miss Martian] You know they're a couple, right?
Aqualad: I think I knew before they did.
[Kid Flash and Artemis enter]
Robin: Do we tell them?
Aqualad: It is not our place.

Batman: The Justice League will handle the plants. I have a different job for the team.
Kid Flash: Oh, man!
[Artemis hits Kid Flash]
Batman: With the plants attacking so many locations simultaneously, there must be a central control system. Your mission is to destroy it.
Zatara: You realize what you're really asking them to do?
Batman: They're ready.
Kid Flash: Ready for what?
[Artemis hits Kid Flash again]
Kid Flash: Ow! Will you cut that-?
Artemis: Hello, Wally! If the big guns are fighting plants, who do you think we'll be fighting?
Kid Flash: I don't know. I guess we'll.... Oh.

('heading out on the Bio-Ship)
Kid Flash: What's in the bag?
Aqualad: Plan B.
Artemis: No. No way I'm nearly drowning 3 missions in a row!

The Joker: Poor heroes. Nothing they do is quite enough. - Ain't it grand?
[laughs maniacally]
Poison Ivy: And impressive. How you simultaneously juggle multiple scenarios.
The Joker: I've had practice. Juggling my multiple personalities.
[laughs again]
The Joker: With so much power at my fingertips, some might call me a "Control Freak." Others just a "Freak." - either works for me.

Artemis: [after she losing her quiver] I feel naked, and not in a fun way
Aqualad: We will make our own fun, as we have been trained. Maneuver 7!

The Joker: Children! Children foiled our plan. Inconceiveable. Unacceptable. Retributionable! That last one might not be a word. So sue me.

Aqualad: [to Miss Martian] Plan B.
Wotan: [the ship drops the duffle bag, revealing the contents] The Helmet of Fate.
Kid Flash: No, Aqualad! Don't...
[Kid Flash is attacked. Aqualad puts on the helmet]
Kid Flash: Oh dude.
Dr. Fate: Wotan. You are mine!
Kid Flash: WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? HOW COULD YOU LET HIM PUT ON THE HELMET? Nabu will never release him now. Kaldur will be trapped inside Dr. Fate forever.
[Fate removes his helmet]
Kid Flash: Nabu let you go?
Aqualad: He almost did not. But your friend Kent was most helpful... He says "Hello."

Batman: We're done here. This Supervillan Secret Society is neutralized [to the Team] as for your performance - it was satisfactory.

L-1: Impressive. The plant creatures have proven their usefulness as potential weapons. More importantly, the so-called heroes now believe our secret society to be revealed, and crushed.
[L-1 comes out of the darkness to reveal himself as Vandal Savage.]
Vandal Savage: With the Injustice League serving as our proxies, we are once again free to operate with impunity.
[The rest of the light come out of the darkness. Lex Luthor, Ra's al Ghul, Queen Bee, Ocean master, the Brain, and Klarion the witch boy.]
Vandal Savage: And shadows still conseal our Light.


Zatanna Zatara: Are you guys having a psychic conversation? 'Cause I can't decide if that's cool or really rude.
Superboy: All right. Fine. We were talking about Tornado. It's been weeks since his attack and the League hasn't told us anything.
Black Canary: But Tornado is Justice League. The team is not to pursue this.

Zatanna: We're not really taking a tour, are we?
Superboy: No. We're hunting down that robot.
Aqualad: Yes! We are!
Zatanna: Wow. Out loud and everything.
Artemis: What about the new girl?
Robin: I'm sure she won't tell.
Zatanna: I can't tell. Not if you kidnap me.
Artemis: Oh she's going to fit in great.

Robin: Batman is the world's greatest detective. He's searched for Tornado and Morrow in every logical place. If we're gonna do better we need an illogical solution. A truly dumb idea.
[Everyone looks at Kid Flash]
Kid Flash: As a matter of fact...
[arrival at Belle Reve Penitentiary to interrogate Professor Ivo]

(Zatanna has forced Professor Ivo to tell where T.O. Morrow was hiding through magic)
Robin: So, I'm trying to be nonchalant here.
Zatanna: Why? Be as chalant as you like.

Superboy: What's our ETA to Yellowstone? I'm way past ready to stuff Tornado into a trash compactor.
Aqualad: Are you certain he betrayed us?
Superboy: Aren't you?
Aqualad: I am not convinced. And even so, that makes him but a victim of his creator's programming. Certainly he deserves the chance to prove he's more than the weapon others designed him to be.

Aqualad: I recommend you stay behind.
Zatanna: Is that an order?
Aqualad: No. You must do as you see fit.
Zatanna: Good.
[Zatanna changes into her uniform]

Red Volcano: You stand no chance against me humans!
Superboy, Miss Martian: We're not humans!
Red Volcano: Apologies, I suppose the properly inclusive term is - meatbags.

Zatanna: Tornado never knew my moves.
Robin: And I bet you've got some good ones. Whoa. Sorry that may have come off a little too Wally.
Zatanna: [chuckles] I don't mind.
Red Tornado: We must stop him.
Red Inferno: Why? One we believe we lived. Now there is only Red Inferno and Red Torpedo. Why should we help save humanity when we are no longer human?
Red Tornado: The premise of your question is flawed. You were never human. but you were heroes.
Miss Martian: Hello Megan! You wanted to become more human.
Artemis: And you couldn't do that with the League. They're stiffs.
Robin: You're sure not going to learn emotion from Batman. Trust me.
Aqualad: Then the cave was not a proving ground only for us - but for you as well.
Red Tornado: I do not know if those statements are accurate - but perhaps they are true. And if I understand the term correctly, I believe I have come to - care about you all.
Superboy: See? Practically a meatbag already.

Robin: So, good kidnapping?
Zatanna: Actually, yeah. Best ever.
Robin: [chuckles] First of many, I hope.
Zatanna: If my dad doesn't ground me for life.
[cut to the Cave]
Zatara: SHE'S GROUNDED FOR LIFE! "They're good kids, Giovanni." "Don't worry, Giovanni." She's never joining this team!


Red Tornado: I must join the League. We will protect the planet at all costs. But should we fail, the responsibility falls to you.
Aqualad: We stand ready.
Red Tornado: Red Tornado to Cave. I fear I am all that remains of the League.
[Red Tornado is disintegrated]
Robin: RT!
Aqualad: We are Earth's heroes now.
Superboy: So what are we waiting for? A theme song?
Aqualad: A strategy. Earth's weapons are ineffective. And it has been made tragically clear that a direct attack will not succeed

Aqualad: We will target this lone ship.
Kid Flash: Yeah, break it down, build more, hit those ugly aliens with their own mojo. Ow!
Artemis: Martian and Kryptonian in the house.
Kid Flash: Not that all aliens are automatically ugly.

(Artemis has just been disintegrated)
Kid Flash: They're dead! Every single alien. If it's the last thing I do!

Miss Martian: Back to the Cave?
Aqualad: The Hall of Justice. The human race must know that there are still heroes defending them - there is still hope.

Gen. Wade Eiling: I don't know who you are, son, and I don't care. But you wear the S, and you got the job done.
Superboy: I'm not Superman.
Gen Wade Eiling: Tell that to the enemy. General Wade Eiling. United States Air Force.
Aqualad: Aqualad. Justice League. We'll help you salvage as many of the alien cannons as possible. Then we start taking back what is ours!

Miss Martian: And though we know all seems lost, the one thing the aliens cannot destroy is hope.
Superboy: Hope survives because the battle is not over, not as long as even one of us is willing to fight.
Kid Flash: It doesn't matter how many fall for new heroes will always rise to carry on, bringing all the resources, their skills, their talents to defeat the enemy.
Robin: The people of Earth will survive this, we will rebuild and we will thrive, never doubt and never forget, the earth will never surrender!

Robin: Superboy, you'll create a distraction.
Miss Martian: NO! He's offering you as a sacrifice. Aqualad would never do that.
Robin: You're right. Aqualad would sacrifice himself. A mistake that just cost us our leader. Superboy is the most likely to be perceived as a threat. Motivating the aliens to deploy.
Kid Flash: Worst case - he's teleported inside and we set him free along with Artemis - and, uh, Aqualad, and everyone.
Superboy: [telepathically to M'Gann] It's okay, M'Gann. It's what Superman would do.

Martian Manhunter: No, my mind is clearer now. The disintegration beam is exactly that. There is no detention facility. No prisoners to rescue. Our mission holds no purpose.
Kid Flash: NO! You're wrong. The Zeta radiation proves she's alive. She's...
Robin: Stop it, KF. I've been scanning for League and team signals since we got inside. They're not here. Artemis is gone. But our mission still holds purpose - to destroy this mother ship.
(as Robin is planting bombs in the alien mothership)
'Kid Flash: You knew. You knew from the beginning why we were really here.
Robin: Four minutes. Let's go.
Robin: [telepathically] 16 seconds and counting. Manhunter take Miss Martian and go!
Miss Martian: NO! We won't leave you.
Robin: That's an order! We'll follow as soon as we blow those doors.
[as the mother ship is blowing up with Kid Flash and Robin inside]
Miss Martian: Don't. Don't tell me the mission was a success. The price was too high.

(Miss Martian has been shocked back into the real world after taking telepathic control of an excercise which Batman and Martian Manhunter are discussing)
Batman: As bad as all that?
Martian Manhunter: Perhaps worse.
Red Tornado: Yet this is not what troubles you.
Martian Manhunter: Make no mistake. My niece is untrained and cannot be held responsible for this - for our debacle.
Batman: No one blames her. But clearly we underestimated her abilities.
Martian Manhunter: You understate it. In terms of raw power, she has the strongest telepathic mind I have ever encountered. Stronger by far than mine.


Batman: How are they?
Martian Manhunter: I am still shaken by what you and I have wrought. One can only imagine what these youths fair.
Batman: I know our virtual reality training simulation went badly, but I'd hoped the team would've rallied by now.
Martian Manhunter: Trauma tends to linger, as I know you know, my friend.

(Superboy has ditched his comm and left the Cave with Sphere and Wolf)
Batman: Superboy return to Cave.
(Artemis's counseling session with Black Canary)
Black Canary: But you still keep secrets from them.
Artemis: You won't tell them! You can't!
Black Canary: You could start by admitting you're not really Green Arrow's niece.
Artemis: Right. Could you imagine what Wally would do with that?
Black Canary: Interesting. So the person you're most worried about - is Wally.

(Kid Flash is having his counseling session with Black Canary)
Black Canary: So, you want me to believe that after everything you went through, including your own death from fiery explosion, you're peachy.
Kid Flash: I'm fairly certain I never used the word peachy, but I think you got the gist.
Black Canary: So, you have no interest in discussing your extreme reaction to Artemis's death?
(Kid Flash, caught off-guard, chokes on his popcorn and sits up): I'd rather talk about you, babe.
Black Canary: Wally, you're in denial.
Kid Flash: I'm comfortable with that.

(Aqualad's counseling session)
Aqualad: I was a general, but behaved like a soldier, and sacrificed myself. I am not fit for command, and resign as team leader.
Black Canary: Who do you recommend to take your place?
Aqualad: Artemis is too raw and untrusting. Kid Flash - too rash and impulsive. Miss Martian remains too eager to please. Superboy carries too much anger.
Black Canary: Making Robin the logical choice.
Aqualad: But he is too young.
Black Canary: Kaldur, you're all young.
Aqualad: I cannot shake this burden to him - not yet. It appears I must withdraw my resignation.

(Superboy has just met the Forever People from New Genesis)
Beautiful Dreamer: [about Serifin] He watched a lot of Earth westerns.
Superboy: Yeah, well, there's a time to go in strong and a time to go in smart.
Vykin: It is your world, Superboy. We shall follow your lead.
(the Forever People and Superboy have come across Desaad and some Apokalips guys)
Vykin: That drill and those carts are the property of New Genesis. You will return them - now!
Superboy: Gold goes back too.
Whisper A'Daire: Interfer and things get ugly.
Bruno 'Ugly' Mannheim: I'm Ugly.
Beautiful Dreamer: These weapons aren't from New Genesis. They are of - the enemy.
Superboy: What enemy?
Beautiful Dreamer: The enemy. The gods of anti-life. These weapons are of Apokalips.
(Desaad and Apokalips guys have retreated)
Superboy: What was that?
Beautiful Dreamer: Infinity Man. We merged to become part of the source, and greater than the sum of our parts.
Superboy: Glad my team's not that close.
Big Bear: Lower beings tend to fear intimacy.

(Robin's counseling session with Black Canary)
Robin: Hurting? Try traumatized. I finally become leader and wind up sending all my friends to their deaths. I -I know I did what I had to do, but I hated it. When we first started this team, I was desperate to be in charge - not anymore. And - and that's not even the worst of it... You can't tell Batman.
Black Canary: Nothing leaves this room.
Robin: I always wanted - expected to-to grow up and - and become him. And the hero bit, I'm still all in. But that thing inside of him, that thing that drives him to sacrifice everyhing for the sake of his mission, that's not me. I don't want to be Batman - anymore.

Desaad: [handing a box to Ugly] Now mortal deliver the father box.
[Ugly tosses the father box to the Infinity Man]
Superboy: That can't be good.
Desaad: Kill the boy and his little dog too.

[Miss Martian's counseling session Black Canary]
Miss Martian: It was all my fault. Hello M'Gann. Who else could take a simple exercise and turn it into a nightmare that terrorizes everyone she cares about?
Black Canary: You've turned white.
Miss Martian: [gasps] NO!... Oh, you meant Caucasian. Yeah, I'm fine being Megan, but I can't be trusted to use my other powers.
Black Canary: M'gann, you're a Martian. Not using your natural abilities is like me refusing to speak. Which, by the way, I tried for a while after my very first Canary Cry. Nearly deafened my entire First Grade class. So I get how you feel. But not being yourself is never the answer. And it won't make your feelings of guilt go away. Learn from what happened. You uncle would be happy to train you. Practice until you have more control, and regain your confidence.

Serifan: [about Sphere] Why should we leave her with you? To us she lives. To you, she's merely technology.
Big Bear: Then what is it like?
Superboy: We bonded, okay?
Vykin: ...In fact, it is. You may keep her.
Superboy: Cool! Wait. Sphere's a she?!

(after helping Forever People defeat Desaad Superboy is finally having his counseling session with Black Canary)
Superboy: Here's the ugly truth. I wasn't devastated. Even when Superman, Tornado, you: the whole League dead. Even though I didn't save Wolf, watched Artemis and Kaldur die. Abandoned M'gann. I felt - at peace. You see from the moment I first opened my eyes in that Cadmus pod, There's been one more thing that I've wanted and feared. To know what is to be Superman. And I know. So I was - I was happy. Everyone I care about dead or traumatized, and I'm happy. How do I get past the guilt of that? How do I live with myself?
Black Canary: I don't have any easy answers Conner. But one thing's clear, admitting it is the first step.


Detective: Great. Look the NYPD will do its best, but the thief is obviously long gone.
[emerging from the shadows]
Harm: Let's not rush to judgement. Mediocrity such as this never far from Harm.
[Harm draws the sword of Beowulf]
Curator: But the legend. Only the pure of heart should be able to summon that power.
Harm: The legend said the heart must be pure. It never said "pure good."

Zatanna: [quietly to Artemis] So how long have Conner and M'Gann been a couple?
Artemis: [chuckles slightly] Couple? No. They're not a...
[M'Gann giggles as she helps Conner with his Halloween costume]
Miss Martian: Would you please stop fidgetting?
Superboy: You are so making this up to me later.
Zatanna: Oh, look. Zombie Captain Marvel. That's hilarious. Heh. Is the Justice League having a party? 'Cause my dad didn't mention it.
(Connor, Wally and Megan have arrived at the Happy Harbor High School Halloween dance)
Mal Duncan: Burn victim?
Connor Kent: Mummy. You?
Mal Duncan: Superman. Done right.
Connor Kent: Yeah. Good luck with that.

Red Arrow: I'm not convinced. Sure you two, and Kid Flash are above suspicion. But I know Artemis isn't shooting straight. For starters, she's not Green Arrow's niece.
Aqualad: What?
Robin: Well, yeah. In fact, she's related to...
Batman: Enough. Artemis's relations may indeed make her suspect. But she's entitled to a secret identity. I'm more concerned about Superboy. We still know very little about what Cadmus programmed into their weapon. Conner could be the mole, and not know it.

[Artemis takes down some criminals]
Zatanna: There were easier ways to take them.
Artemis: They had it coming! No harm done.
[their bike suddenly explode in front of them]
Harm: No indeed. Harm is not done. Much Harm left to do.
Harm: Their ridiculous garb and rudimentary skills indicate instruction from Green Arrow and Zatara. Harm will study these two to learn methods for killing their mentors.
Zatanna Zatara: Oh you did not just threaten my dad!
Zatanna: Thanks for the assist, but - who are you?
Secret: Secret.
Artemis: That won't cut it. We need answers. Do you know Harm? Does he have any weaknesses?
Secret: Secret.
[as Harm is fighting Artemis]
Harm: So unfocused. It struggles with inner demons and can't fight Harm while fighting itself. Harm doesn't fight his demons. Harm embraces them.

[Marvin has attempted to punk the Halloween dance into believing that Martians are invading, but Megan, Connor, and Wally caught on and punked him instead]
Wendy Harris: Marvin chill. We got the memo.
Marvin White: No before it was all a prank I pulled. Now it's definitely real! The Martians just killed two guys.
[Megan, Conner and Wally enter]
Megan Morse: Which two guys?
Marvin White: [pointing to Conner and Wally] Those two guys... Wait- I uh... Oh.

[Artemis has her crossbow aimed at Secret]
Zatanna: Wait.
Artemis: Zatanna, she's his partner!
Zatanna: Then why did she help me?
Artemis: Don't know. Secret.

(Artemis shoots an arrow at harm, who catches it, and Artemis runs. Harm sees the stove leak gas, and the arrow bursts into flames)

Harm: Oh, that little... (Explosion)

[reading a grave marker in Harm's backyard]
Zatanna Zatara: Greta Hayes. Beloved sister.
[Secret rises from the grave. Zatanna gasps]
Zatanna: This... this is your grave. This is your secret! This is you!
Artemis: A ghost? An actual ghost!
Harm: Ah, it casts another illusion spell.
Zatanna: Except I didn't speak. Harm knows it can't cast a spell without speaking.
[Harm gasps realizing who the ghost is]
Artemis: You asked how we found this place. Face it, Harm. Your secret's out!
Harm: No! Harm's heart is pure. Harm's not sorry.
[Secret reaches into Harm's chest and pulls out his power]
Harm: I'm not!
Artemis: I still can't believe anyone could do that to his own sister. If my...
Zatanna: Your what? Artemis, talk to me. Secrets don't stay buried obviously. It's better to bring them into the light.
[noticing a sign across the street]
Artemis: Zatanna look. Must be the last thing Greta ever saw.


Zatanna: Robin, I'm just not on Zatara's level.
Robin: I know it's hard, but try to stay whelmed. We'll find your dad, Batman, all of them. It's what we do.

Klarion: So, you teamed up with the grown-ups. Teamwork is so overrated.

Klarion: (After seeing the Helmet of Fate repeatedly lose it grip on Zatanna.) HA! There, see? When the worlds divided, the Helmet's split too! You're not all here Nabu! And you're losing your hold on that poor, soon to be dead girl! (Chuckles evilly) She gave herself up for nothing.
Dr. Fate: No, Witchboy! Fate decrees her sacrifice will not be in vain! (Blasts Klarion)

Kaldur/Aqualad: Attention, children and teenagers of earth. I am Aqualad. These are my friends, Robin and Kid Flash.
Robin: We are using Justice League tech to cast and stream to every TV, radio, smartphone, and computer on the planet.
Wally/Kid Flash: We know you must be scared, and angry. We know that with your parents gone, there's a temptation to run wild, but please, stay calm.
Kaldur/Aqualad: We will find a way to bring the adults back. But for now, the oldest among you must step up.
Robin:Take care of your younger siblings. Take care of kids who have no one.
Wally/Kid Flash: Protect them.
Kaldur/Aqualad: It is up to you.

Zatarra: Fate! Great Nabu, release my daughter.
Dr. Fate: No. Witness the havoc wrought in these hours. The world needs Doctor Fate. And the girl's natural abilities in the mystic arts makes her the perfect candidate.
Artemis: You can't do that!
Robin: She has her own life to live!
Kid Flash: Kent would never allow you to...
Dr. Fate: Kent Nelson did object, strenuously. So I released his spirit to the afterlife. He is gone.
Zatarra: Take me instead. My powers are already at their peak. My body is physically stronger, better able to withstand the strain of your power.
Dr. Fate: All true. but if I remove the helmet, what guarantee have I that you will don it?
Zatarra: My word.

Klarion: Ha ha ha! Happy?
The Brain: Oui, mon ami. Your distraction, though a bit extreme, was tres effective. Amid your trade-marked chaos, no-one will notice the absence of our prize. And in time, we will bring it into the Light.


Kid Flash: (To highway patrol) Go, get out of here. I'll handle Vandal.
Vandal Savage: You'll handle me? (Lifts Kid Flash by his head) Little hero, do you really think you have what it takes to survive Vandal Savage?


Psimon: Tsk, tsk. Am i the only one to learn anything from our previous encounter? You didn't think that, maybe, if you could sense me I could sense you too? Or that this time, I'd be ready to use your greatest fear against you? Psimon says: Show me who, or rather what, you really are.
Miss Martian: No, no, no! This is who I am! (Changes into her white martian form)

(During their telepathic battle)

Psimon: Off our game, are we? Let's dig a little deeper, find out what you're really afraid of, hmm? (Miss Martian sees the Team in horror)
Kid Flash: Get back!
Psimon: Well, of course. Friends and teammates shrink from you in fear. (Giant versions of Batman, Black Canary, and Red Tornado appear)
Black Canary: You should've told us the truth.
Batman: I don't see how we can trust you anymore. (All three leave)
Psimon: Then you're kicked off the pep squad. (A giant version of Martian Manhunter's head appears)
Martian Manhunter: I am sorry M'gann, but there is no place for you on Earth anymore. (A desert landscape is shown)
Psimon: Oh, and banished to Mars, too? Yet even that's not the worst, is it? (The Mars landscape is blown away to reveal Superboy)
Miss Martian: No, please, stop.
Superboy: Love you? I can't even LOOK at you. (Superboy leaves, Miss Martian falls to her kness, and Psimon appears)
Psimon: Oh, what you wouldn't do to prevent that now, right?
Miss Martian: That's right. (The entire floor shakes and brightens)
Psimon: Now, now, my prettie, I know you do want to do anything you'll regret.
Miss Martian: YOU DON'T KNOW ME AT ALL. (She shoots a beam at Psimon and enlarges it, erasing his consciousness)

Queen Bee: Now, your performance. a bit over the top, I think. But, then, you haven't practiced me the way you've perfected the role of M'gann. (Miss Martian looks terrified) That's right, poor Psimon's not the only one who knows your true form. and if you don't cooperate, I'll make sure everyone knows what you really are.


(Aboard the Watchtower)

Wonder Woman: Times like these, one feels the very weight of the world upon us.
Aquaman: Everyone is here. (The League gathers in a large room) Our agenda is clear. What's at stake should not be underestimated.
Superman: The Decisions we make today will reverberate for years to come.
Wonder Woman: And influence whether or not the world continues to put their trust in the Justice League.
Batman: Please, take your seats. We have work to do.

Martian Manhunter: Another expansion of the League could generate another escalation of hostilities from our enemies. No-one needs, or wants, another Injustice League.
Superman: Point taken, but the option remains to vote no on all candidates, so I nominate Icon for League membership.
Green Arrow: Why? 'Cause you suspect Icon might be Kryptonian like you did with Captain Marvel?
Captain Marvel: You thought I was Kryptonian? Cool!
Wonder Woman: Icon interests me also, as does his protege, Rocket. athena knows the League could use more Female members.
Black Canary: Agreed.
Hawkwoman: Here here! (Awkward silence)

Captain Marvel: Seriously, the Atom? How useful could he be at that size?
Batman: It's the size that makes him useful.
Flash: Absolutely. Still, we could always use more raw power, and Earth has a third Green Lantern, Guy Gardener.
Hal Jordan and John Stewart: No.
Flash: But we could really...
Hal Jordan and John Stewart: NO!

Green Arrow: If we're considering Blue Devil, then I nominate Red Arrow. Roy has more experience, and he's no kid anymore, he's 18. A legal adult. He's ready.
Aquaman: Is he? Red Arrow has been uncooperative and disrespectful. If we reward that kind of behavior, what message does that send to the rest of the team?

Superman: No. Red Arrow may be 18, but the rest of the team is too young. We're not inducting children into the League. (Captain Marvel fidgets with his collar)
Doctor Fate: That seems myopic. I have been one with Kid Flash and Aqualad. Both are ready.
Wonder Woman: And what of Zatanna?
Wonder Woman: That sounded almost protective, doctor. At least we still know Zatarra's still in that helmet somewhere.
Captain Marvel: Why is Doctor Fate a member? You coerced Zatarra into giving up his life to you, or lose his only daughter instead. Not cool.
Red Tornado: Should such behavior be condoned?
Doctor Fate: Zatarra desires Doctor Fate to remain in the League.
Green Arrow: Oh, please.
Doctor Fate: It is true. Zatarra's trust in Nabu is...measured. He desires the League to maintain a close watch upon us.


Sportsmaster: Shh. We wouldn't want to upset your mother.
Artemis: What are you doing here?
Sportsmaster: Just curious to hear how your little team took their defeat. Blamed you, didn't they? Will they keep you around now that Red Arrow's joined up? And what if they learn the truth about the family ties you've worked so hard to hide? Would they ever trust you again?
Artemis": Thanks for the pep-talk, dad. We should have these family reunions more often.
Sportsmaster: You tried, baby girl. You can fight Jade, you can fight me, but you can't fight who you are. time to switch sides, Artemis. You'll never be one of them. You belong with us.


Parasite: I have been a bit of a glutton today. Chowed down on the skills of nearly every loser in this troop. But, oh my, the peati resistance was Dawn Danger, or whatever her real name is. Thought I'd munch on her trapeze skills. Imagine my surprise when she tasted like Marian Manhunter instead. She mad a lovely appetizer, but guess who I want for my entree? (Telekinetically grabs Superboy) Mmm. Now that's the full bodied Kryptonian flavor I love!

Usual Suspects[edit]

(The entire league has fallen to mind-control)

Batman: Override. Batman: 0-2.
Computer: Recognized. Access granted. Vandal Savage: A-04.

(The entire league bows, except Red Arrow, who looks around)

Red Arrow: I...I was the mole?
Vandal Savage: Yes. Yes you were.

Auld Acquaintance[edit]

Vandal Savage: 50,000 years of life, and nothing ever troubled me as much as the founding of the Justice League. Dedicated to maintaining society's councilfied status quo, the League would "protect" mankind from disaster, crime, tragedy of any kind. Had you never heard of "survival of the fittest"? In essence, you "heroes" sought to protect humanity from it's own glorious evolution. As such, you forced my more enlightened colleagues and myself to organize a response. We created a co-optive network of operatives. Placed key individuals in key locations. Made certain we were on the cutting edge of all new technologies: Genetic engineering, biochemical engineering, robotics, nano-robotics, even tech-no-sorcery. Not to mention every conceivable method of mind control. Cold hard science, and a little misdirection, and now you champions of stagnation have become our agents of change. Forcing the human race to evolve on a more advanced schedule. Allowing the Earth to take it's rightful place in the center of the cosmos.

Aqualad: Something else is wrong.
Robin: The entire League was under Savage's spell for just over a day. (Images are shown of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkwoman) We've accounted for most of that time, but these six went missing for a full 16 hours we can't account for.
Batman: 16 hours? What did we do?

Season 2: Invasion[edit]

The second season takes place five years after the event of "Auld Acquaintance"

Happy New Year[edit]

Secretary-General Tseng: Please, I don't understand you. I don't know what you want.
Computer: Translating: Interlac.
Lobo: So that's how you want to play it? Fine. Contract calls for the main man to put on a show for the locals. So one more time: Surrender or die.
Tseng: Contract? Show?!
Lobo: Die it is, then.

(Wonder Girl and Batgirl are defeated by Lobo)

Lobo: (To Tseng) Time to die, Krolo. (Rips Tseng in half revealing a alien inside a robot)

John Stewart: Big guy's Lobo. He's an intergalactic bounty hunter. Big, scary, but not likely to return. The little guy's another story. That's a Krolotean. And Kroloteans always travel in packs.
Batman: Meaning more of them are on Earth.

(The team and League is being deployed to defeat the Kroloteans)

Nightwing: Robin, Beetle, La'gaan, you're Gamma squad. Prep the bio-ship. You're headed to New Orleans.
Lagoon Boy: Gamma always gets the soft gigs.

(Gamma arrives at their target)

Lagoon Boy: A tool shed? Barely enough room for one Zeta-tube in there. I KNEW we'd get the soft gig.
Blue Beetle: And yet, I'm strangely okay with that. (To his Scarab, softly) Yes I am. (Slightly louder) Yes I am. (Yelling) YES, I AM!

(Robin, Blue Beetle, and Lagoon boy are ambushed by a hundred Kroloteans)

Blue Beetle: (To Lagoon Boy) "Soft gig", huh?

(Gamma has found the Krolotean hostages)

Hostage 1: More aliens!
Hostage 2: Keep them away!
Blue Beetle: Hey, we're not aliens! (Looks at the Krolotean they captured) Okay, well, HE is, but WE'RE NOT!


Beast Boy: Whoa. I am totally walking on an alien planet. Wow, sis, you must say that, like, everyday on Earth.
Miss Martian: Actually, I kind of do. (ruffles his hair)
Beast Boy: Wait, we can breathe the air here, right? (clutches throat)

Beast Boy: Way to lead a mission accomplished...up high sis
Beast Boy: (Being held after Miss Martian suddenly materializes behind him) Owaahh What's that for?
Miss Martian: (Laughs) Nothing...Family provocative.

Beast Boy: (on the dangers of carnivorous trees) No can give me another blood transfusion...wonder what power i'd get this time?
Miss Martian: The power to listen to your adoptive sister maybe?.
Beast Boy: Sorry...didn't hear that

Miss Martian: (telepathically consoling Beast Boy) Oh Gar...I'm so sorry I should've been there...done something...but it's not your couldn't have stopped Queen Bee. I miss your mom too but we have too keep's not safe here...please!


Manta: Manta to Partner: The base has been infiltrated. Abort operation!
Partner: Partner to Manta: The device is already primed. You have fives minutes. Get your men out. The bomb will take care of the rest.
Manta: Perfect.


Blue Beetle: (Fighting a giant of wood, metal, stone, and crystal) What is that thing?
Scarab: Appellaxian Golem.
Blue Beetle: You know, I'm bilingual, and I still have no idea what you just said.
Scarab: Irrelevant. Attack!
Blue Beetle: Okay, that I get.

Superboy: Blue, let's go. Fight your inner demons later.
Blue Beetle: Demon. Singular. One's enough, believe me.


Psimon: Shimmer, what're you... (realizing who it is) Martian!
Miss Martian: (Telepathically) Hello Psimon. Ready for a re-match?


Robin: What's a meta-gene?
Beast Boy: (nudging Robin) Never met-a-gene I didn't like!

Beast Boy: Well, I guess we found our unknown energy impulse.
Impulse: Impulse? Hmm. Like it, that's so word. Like Robin, or Nightwing, or Beast Boy. 'Cept that's two words. Hey, Blue Beetle's two words. Is he here too? Never mind. "Impulse" can find that out by himself.

Beast Boy: (On Impulse being The Flash's grandson) Noted...not believed...but noted
Impulse: What's not too believe...I clearly have Flash's speed...his amazing good looks...frankly I can't wait to meet know back when he was in his prime.

Beast Boy: (after Impulse reveals the true identities of Robin, Nightwing and Beast Boy) Your name's Tim?...And yours is Dick?
Impulse: Oops...spoilers...secret identity thing is so retro

Beast Boy: Tell us something we don't know...yet, when do I become leader of the team?...When do I join the Justice League?...When do I get my own reality series?
Impulse: Sorry BB...never was the best history student

Impulse:Ohhhppp...Sounds like a door opening somewhere...aaannnddd that's my cue (vibrates his wrists and ankles to get out of the cuffs) Bye bye (Sprints past Guardian) Hi now...bye now
Beast Boy:(giving chase) Don't worry, the peregrine falcon is the world's fastest bird...he won't get away (morphs into a falcon)
Robin: (Soto voice) Doesn't stand a chance...does he?
Nightwing: (Soto voice) Nope!...Impulse is too fast!

Barry Allen: (on the phone) What kind of...impulse? Another speedster?...He says he's my what? (Impulse arrives)
Impulse: Yoouurr Grandson! HA! Bart Allen aka Impulse and I'm your grandson from the future...pretty crash huh?

Impulse: (sarcastically) Aha...back in a flash! Wow does he say that often?
Kid Flash, Jay and Joan Garrick, Iris: (joint sigh...then as one) Too often!

Kid Flash: Captain, keep your men at a safe distance.
Police Captain: Protecting the city's what they pay me for, Speedy.
Impulse: (arriving with Flash) Nope, Speedy's the other guy. Though, history books were never clear on the WHY.

Neutron: No. This interference will... not... stand! (his energy waves start increasing, then stop all together. The sky turns red.)
Impulse: We are so gonna feel the Mode.

Impulse: I gotta run (laughs) see what I did there with the run?

Beast Boy: (when the time machine isn't powering up) Maybe he's travelling forward one second at a time?


Aqualad: (Stabbing Artemis) Welcome back.


Roy Harper: That's detonation cord, Luthor. The kind LexCorp sells illegally. It's the perfect revenge. I use your own tech to do to you what you did to me.
Lex Luthor: Except, we gave you anaesthesia. Your methods seem a tad more... violent.
Roy Harper: Hey guys. What took you so long?
Green Arrow: You didn't...
Roy: Kill Luthor? No. Not yet.
Red Arrow: What's in the case?
Roy: Satisfaction. (opens the case to reveal a cyborganic arm) It's not on the market yet, and won't fool anyone into thinking it's actually flesh and bone, but it's more versatile than the one Luthor gave his own bodyguard. And it will literally make me a living weapon. no one's putting me on ice again.
Green Arrow: Speedy, are you sure you're all right?
Roy: Speedy died eight years ago. But I kind of like the sound of... Arsenal.


Scarab: No. We can not allow ourselves to be taken prisoner.
Blue Beetle: Not much choice, is there?
Icicle Jr.: None at all.
Scarab: Inaccurate. I have tapped the functions of this "inhibitor collar". I will disable it so that you may attack.
Blue Beetle: And risk Aqualad blowing up the cave? I don't think so.
Scarab: Then Jaime Reyes, you leave me no choice. I am taking control.

Before the Dawn[edit]

(The Reach are holding Blue Beetle hostage)

The Scientist: The Scarabs memory files are corrupted. The only recoverable data is from the last eight months. That is, since it fused with this host body. In fact I was just reviewing the point of insertion...
The Ambassador: Spare me the details. If the Scarab is Off-Mode, perform a Reboot.
The Scientist: I'd rather assess the cause of the crash, Ambassador, to make certain it can not happen again.
Black Beetle: No, Scientist. Admit it. You just enjoy playing with the meat.
The Scientist: Well, there's that too.

The Scientist: This human Beetle is a disappointment. How can he be the Reach's advanced operative on Earth if his Scarab refuses to function On-Mode?!
Black Beetle: Then Reboot.
The Scientist: Yes, that may be necessary. Of course, we'd require a new host.
Black Beetle: Finding another will not be difficult. Though removing the Scarab for Mode repair will kill this Jaime Reyes, "meat" is plentiful here.

(The Team's influtrated the Reach ship)

Superboy: The link's down. I'm going back in. (Gets throw back by Black Beetle)
Black Beetle: Apologies, meat, but no-one goes anywhere. (Closes the doors using electro-symbiosis)
Wonder Girl: Listen, uh... Black Beetle! You're totally outnumbered! Open those doors now, and we'll go easy on you.
Black Beetle: You will go easy on me?


True Colors[edit]

(Inside a Reach/LexCorps farm)

Tour Lady: Everyone, please, enjoy these protien rich, Reach enhanced produce.
Tim Drake: Genetically enhanced?
Tour Lady: There's been no tampering with genes, rest assured. The Reach have ways of unlocking an organism's full potential. (The tourists grab fruits, and the Team puts samples in bags. Impulse starts eating an apple, and everyone glares at him)
Bart Allen: What? I'm maintaining cover.

(In the restroom)

Impulse: Uhh. Can we please start the mission now?!
Robin: Yes, go. (All exit the stalls in stealth mode, except Impulse) You're in the wrong mode.
Impulse: Dude, I crash all modes.

Arsenal: Wait for it. (An explosion goes off)
Robin: You blew the lab?! This was a covert-op! What were you thinking?!
Arsenal: That I'm not about to let Lex Luthor and his space buddies poison the world just because we don't know exactly what poison they're using. Plus, I enjoy making Lex miserable.

Black Beetle: (Impulse is throwing tomatoes at him) Now that's just a waste of good fruit.

(The team's caught by Black Beetle, and suddenly, Green Beetle appears)

Impulse: How many colors do these guys come in, anyway?

The Fix[edit]

Artemis: "Symbiosi! Together!"

The Runaways[edit]


Reach Ambassador: (Seeing WarWorld approaching) Why would he come here? And why now? Open a sub-space channel. Attention, I am an ambassador of the Reach, and claim the Earth as property of the Reach under Guardian treaty. You are therefore breaching Reach territory. Reverse course.
Mongul: (Over speaker) Request denied. It is because the Reach is on Earth that I am here.

Captain Atom: Attention...WarWorld. This is Captain Atom of the Justice League, representing the planet Earth. We wish to open negotiations.
Mongul: But I am uninterested in negotiations. The Earth under the reach's thumb is far too gret a threat to my long-term plans. It must be destroyed. And, quite frankly, if you knew what you were in for with the Reach, you'd thank me for putting you out of your collective misery.

Blue Beetle: Beta to WatchTower: We've been spotted. The WarWorld knows we're here.
Guardian: Fine with me, I like the attention. At least a big alien death moon notices when I'm around.
Bumblebee: Was that a slam on me? In the middle of a mission?!
Guardian: Woman, when are you NOT in the middle of a mission?!

(Arsenal, Superboy, and Wonder Girl have found Mongul)

Arsenal: He is a big one.
Mongul: This is your attack force? I'm insulted.
Superboy: Learn to cope.

Mongul: Don't you understand? Your deaths today in the face of the Reach are a mercy. My grand lazer emitter would've ended your world in a matter of minutes. Another mercy. But it seems the mercies of Mongul are not appreciated. So we will do this the hard way, and the WarWorld will unleash all it's weapons upon the Earth. You're welcome.

Batgirl: Delta to WatchTower: Bio-ship estimates that the League is neutralizing 64% of the WarWorld's missles, but that's not gonna cut it.
Aquaman: WatchTower estimates that Earth's air defenses will neutralize a further 13%
Reach Scientist: But a 23% saturation is enough to decimate a hemisphere, adn spoil all Earth's meat.
Reach Ambassador: Then, to protect the Reach's investment...mobilize the fleet. (The Reach warships rise from the ocean, and several are destroyed before they reach low orbit.)
Reach Scientist: We have sacrificed 2/3rds of our fleet to successfully safeguard the Earth!


The Hunt[edit]

(The Runaways have infiltrated the WarWorld and are taking down a squad of Reach soldiers when Tye activates LongShadow)

Virgil Hawkins: Hoo hoo. Now you've gone and woke up the big man.

(The Runaways locate the Team)

Virgil: Looks like they're frozen.
Black Beetle: They're in stasis. And you will join them soon enough.
Virgil: Guys, I saw this creep take down all of these guys back on the Reach ship.
Black Beetle: Please, don't let that stop you from attacking. I could use the exercise. (LongShadow attacks, but Black Beetle deactivates him with his sonic cannon)
Eduardo: Please tell me he did not just take out our big gun in three seconds flat.
Virgil: Skatter! (Eduardo teleports, but Virgil and Asami are taken down almost immediately)
Black Beetle: So much for exercise.

(Arsenal is trying to open a stasis-pod while the Runaways battle Black Beetle)

Eduardo: We're throwing everything we've got at this desperado, and barely holding our own. Shouldn't we be freeing some of the good guys?
Arsenal: No. (Arsenal fires at the pod and releases Mongul)
Eduardo: Uh, amigo, you don't seem clear on who we're here to rescue.
Arsenal: Trust me, I'm clear. (Black notices Mongul's release)
Black Beetle: Mongul! This is all your fault!
Mongul: Reach. (The two engage in hand-to-hand combat)

(Nightwing arrives when Arsenal and the Runaways free the team)

Arsenal: Hey fearless leader. Better late than never.
Nightwing: Everyone okay?
Arsenal: For now.
Nightwing: The Crystal Key?
Arsenal: Gone. (Mongul and Black land a few yards away) And we better get gone too, before one of them declares a winner!


Jaime Reyes: Scarab, you don't have to do this!
The Ambassador: But he does, and so do you. In fact, it will be a good lesson to you to helplessly observe your own body murder your former friends. The first kills are always the hardest my boy. Might as well get them over with.


Reach Ambassador: Remember, the Earth is now the property of the Reach, and per our origninal agreement, the Light is mearly our favored allies amoungst the humans.
Black Beetle: Show the proper respect, or suffer the consequences.
Black Manta: No agreement exists that makes a slave of Black Manta.
Black Beetle: No agreement exists that guarantees the life of Black Manta.
Black Manta: Manta guarantees that himself. (Both ready their weapons)
Ra's Al Ghul: It would seem we have a stand-off.
Black Beetle: No, we don't. (Attacks Manta, and a fight breaks out)

(Aqualad has revealed that the Light tricked the Reach from day one after he and Artemis were exposed and shot by Deathstroke)

Reach Ambassador: You earthlings are a pestilance and a plague! You dare sabotage us?! Dare betray US?! Have you forgoten who controls the WarWorld? The Light is foruntate that we do not carve up your planet as we speak!
Vandal Savage: That would indeed impress, as I have the WarWorld's crystal key!
Aqualad: That was all I needed to know.
Black Manta: Kal'dur, you're...
Aqualad: Alive, yes.
Artemis: (To Ra's Al Ghul to help her up) If you would? Uh. And I always heard how the "Great One" was such a gentleman.
Vandal Savage: Impossible. Deathstroke killed you both!
Deathstroke: Just for a little while. After all, I wouldn't want to do any permanent damage... (Shifts into Miss Martian, and telekinitically holds a sword to Savage's throat.)
Miss Martian:...To my best friends. Not when a little misdirection and Hollywood special effects will do instead.
Aqualad: For we value our true friends, and unlike you, we are not short on them.

(The rest of the Team arrive)

Vandal Savage: I've had my fill of your interference. Do not expect to survive. Kill them all. Superboy may present a problem, but we'll deal with him when the other children lie bleeding on the ground.
Aqualad: Still you refer to us as children. No wonder our successes mount. You consistently underestimate us.

Kid Flash: I so wanna kiss you now... or maybe kill you for putting us through all this!
Artemis: Hold that thought. You can decide later, when we're alone.

Black Manta: Ignorant boy! This is not a world, a universe, in which a free man can afford to be soft. I will teach you to be ruthless, Kaldur'ahm, even if I must beat that lesson into your skull.


(Black Beetle is fighting Blue and Green Beetle)

Black Beetle: I had hoped to put you back on mode, but it seems all four of you are corrupt.
Green Beetle: You are the one who is corputed. But my scarab will reset yours, freeing you from the Reach's control. (Green's scarab taps into Black's)
Black Beetle: Freedom is over-rated. (Black sends a signal back to Green, and destroys his scarab) Martians. I hate your kind. Most meat would die from having their scarab destroyed, but you'll survive, for a while. (He activates his plasma cannon)
Blue Beetle: No! (Takes the hit)
Black Beetle: You! You're the cause of all this. It's about time your scarab was destroyed, and your life ended. (Black's scarab taps into Blue's) You fight back, but it's useless.
Blue Beetle: But I'm not alone in this fight, am I scarab?
Scarab: No, Jaime Reyes. Once you fought for control, now we fight together.
Blue Beetle: Friends, hermanos, fighting together against any attack.
Black Beetle: No! (His scarab is destroyed)

Captain Atom: The Earth is being pulled apart from the devices around the world, and the League is spread thin to advert the chaos.
Blue Beetle: It's Black Beetle's MFDs, Magnetic Field Disruptors. They're disabling Earth's magnetic field, causing these not-so-natural disasters.

(The Team and League is at the U.N. to organize the attack on the Reach's MFDs)

Captain Atom: This is a mission of absolute importance. If we fail, there will be no Earth to save. Now, they're are 20 MFDs around the world, and there are 40 of us here, so you'll be in teams of two. Each MFD is protected by two drones, and each drone is the equivalent of a beetle warrior.
Lex Luthor: Each of these eggs contains my anti-Reach virus. While one hero runs interference, the other only has to physically touch his or her egg to disarm the device. Ladies and gentlemen, the fate of the world is in your hands.

(Artemis jumps to dodge an explosion. Kid Flash catches her in mid air and runs away from the explosion.)

Kid Flash: (in a French accent) Ah ze Eiffel Tower.... And the ever romantic city of lights! We're definitely coming back here babe. Y'know, when we don't have a world to save.
Artemis: There will always be a world to save. Now drop me and go! (Artemis shoots an arrow at the drones as Kid Flash zooms to the M.F.D.)

(Kid Flash and Artemis disable one of the Magnetic Field Disruptors in Paris)

Artemis: Omega to Watchtower, the device is... (Kid Flash kisses her)
Snapper Carr: Omega, repeat transmission? ...Omega?

Static: Gotta say, playing hero: starting to feel pretty sweet!

(Flash, Kid Flash, and Impulse are trying to absorb the energy from a M.F.D.)

Scarab: Earth's magnetic field is stabilizing! But there is a problem, Jaime Reyes. Due to his slower speed, the Kid Flash is acting as a vent for the Crysalis energy. In 16 seconds, he will cease.
Blue Beetle: Cease?..."Cease what"?

(Kid Flash is getting hit with energy, and each blow makes him fade)

Flash: Bart, we've gotta slow down, try to syphen off some of the energy affecting Wally.
Kid Flash: It's no good, Barry. Oh, man, Artemis is gonna kill me. And don't even get me started on mom and dad.
Flash: Kid, we'll...
Kid Flash: Just tell them, okay? (He dissovles into dust)
Flash: KID!!

(The MFD is down, and Impulse and Flash are out of breath, Miss Martian helps Impulse stay upright)

Artemis: Wait, where's Wally?!
Flash: Artemis, he wanted me to tell you...
Artemis: (begins to cry) No, no.
Flash: He loved you (Artemis breaks down in tears as Miss Martian consoles her).

Aqualad: (To the Justice League) Fear not...the crisis/Crysalis has passed...(Cuts to a tearful Artemis meeting Wally's parents) Though at a terrible cost!

(Impulse is wearing Kid Flash's uniform while looking at his holographic memorial in the Watchtower)

Artemis: You look good.
Bart Allen: Really? Cause I feel like a fraud.
Artemis: Well, don't. You're honoring Wally's memory by becoming Kid Flash.
Bart Allen: So, you suited up, but as Tigress?
Artemis: Artemis was Wally's partner. I need some space. Time to see how Tigress works out.
Bart Allen: As a hero?
Artemis: As a blonde.

(The League watches the news coverage of the Reach's departure)

G Gordon Godfrey: (On holographic TV) Well, it looks like someone's finally listening to old G. Gordon, the lone voice of reason callling for the outing of Secretary General Tseng after his diastrous alliance with the Reach. Well guess what, folks? Tseng actually resigned. You're welcome. Now, his replacement has not been officially chosen, but I think there's only one man qualifies: the man who helped save us all from the Reach's MFDs. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...Lex Luthor!
Superman: You have GOT to be kidding me! (Shuts off news coverage)
Captain Atom: And on that note, I officially hand over my chairmanship of the you.
Black Canary: (Sarcastically) Wow, thanks so much.

Batman: Having broken the Light in half, and stopping the alien invasion, the Team will now operate out of the WatchTower, side-by-side with the Justice League. Not because Mount Justice was destroyed, but because you earned it.

(Vandal Savage and Darkseid shake hands)

Vandal Savage: (Last lines) Business as usual.


  • Don't call them sidekicks.
  • BirdFlash for the win.
  • How dare they kill Wally.
