Posting from my phone, so sorry about the lack of detail, but is anyone else watching this show? I've really been digging it.

Yes.

I really like Nightwing's new costume.

If only his DCNU costume was as good.

Since it began!

It's not extraordinary and it has its flaws, but it's definitely one of the better superhero series out there.

I haven't had the chance to start Invasion, though. *goes to fix it*

It is a good substitute for Justice League Unlimited

I won't spoil it, but today's episode of Invasion was excellent.

As an avid (especially DC) comic-reader, I have been watching this since the first episode. Love this series.
My reaction to today's episode:
(SPOILER) Wow, this episode was awesome, definitely the best of Season 2 so far, and IMO I think it might even be the best of the show so far. Seems like the The Reach are the Kroloteans' "Competitors" and cool to see The Light working with both the the Kroloteans and The Reach/Competitors, also awesome to see Black Manta inducted into The Light, wonder how Ocean Master disgraced himself? I would guess Orm likely got his identity exposed to Aquaman and Atlantis and lost his position of power.
Aqualad as Black Manta II was awesome as well, wonder if he really turned evil or he is just really deep undercover? (not known to most of the Justice League or The Team) Either way I am extremely intrigued. And he took down Superboy like a boss. Wonder how Tula/Aquagirl got killed?
I wonder who planted the Alien bomb? At first I thought it could Mal Duncan due to the build of the person and it looked like he/she was carrying a shield and Mal Duncan might be acting as a new Guardian without the others knowing, but when I saw the rest of the episode I think the context of the situation does not make sense for it to be Mal. If it is a known character the only other viable candidate I could think of was perhaps a Scarab-controlled Blue Beetle, since it seems the elimination of the Kroloteans is in the The Reach's/Competitor's interests.
The 8 Justice League members going off Earth to stand trial was a smart way to remove the Justice League's power and presence on Earth for the rest of the season.

Great show, I'm glad they're bringing back DC characters in a more serious light. Justice League Unlimited was a favorite of mine for awhile.

I stopped watching it cause the release of new eps was so erratic. I guess I'll start watching it again.

Has Megan stopped going "Hello megan!" yet?

When did you stop watching it? Miss Martian says it less than she used to, but they also give an very interesting backstory as to why Miss Martian has sitcom character mannerisms.

(SPOILER)
First of all, it was wicked seeing the Bat-Team all working as a single cohesive unit, and absolutely kicking ass. It's amazing how their fighting styles show a lot about how their characters all work together at different levels. It was also good seeing Superman & Superboy working together and being past the awkwardness. I also liked how Superman's the-good-guy aspect is portrayed when he attepts to save the Kroloteans in the end. I was a rather surprised that Megan's interrogation of the Krolotean wasn't really brought up, since Martian Manhunter obviously noticed what she did when she knocks it into a coma - especially because the both of them are masquerading them as Kroloteans later.

However, as Kaldur'ahm is my favorite character, and Black Manta's long been one of my favorite villians, it's really an exciting turn seeing him following in his dad's footsteps, especially as one of the most powerful members of the team. The way he takes down Superboy in a single move was extremely impressive, and he's gonna be a force to be reckoned with, especially with his already impressive array of powers being backed up with a technologically powerful exosuit.

I was going to spoiler tag this post, but I thought otherwise because I kept tagging everything, so beware.

I terribly love this show. I didn't get to see today's yet, but rest assured this show is being funded by my money via PSN.

I hear a lot of complaints about season 2 (Time Skip with little explanation) but they seem to be focusing more on the overall plot as the focus, and I am pleased greatly with the cameos (Lobo, Wonder Girl, Batgirl, Tim. Was Batgirl a Teen Titan/YJ member? Oh well who cares.) If they want to fit as much Young Justice mythos and break the eras down into seasons, they can.

So far, everybody seems to have a good chunk of focus as the episodes air to explain enough about what happened to them. (SPOILER) Miss Martian's craziness is explained a lot by what happened to Beast Boy's mom/her idol. Wonder what she did to Queen Bee?

I wasn't excited for this show when it was in development, but it is clever how they pitched it by bringing in both Teen Titans and Justice League characters.

But overall the writing seems to be paying off for me, even though they foreshadow a lot. It's my favorite cartoon so far this generation. After that, I'd order Avengers a close second, then Thundercats, then (much further down the line) Ultimate Spider-Man.
