Well, I just watched "Drop Zone" and I'll give some feedback.

I like how the Young Justice members fought Kobra, the Sportsman and Bane in one episode. Just an odd combo and I love it. I'm glad they're fighting adult super villains.

Charterizations for Robin and Superboy were good. I like how Superboy seems to be portrayed as kind of arrogant and careless with his power.

The color schemes were kind interesting for the villains. Kobras were red and I'm used to them being green from Batman Beyond and Batman: The Brave and the Bold, specifically the prologue to "Requiem for a Scarlet Speedster", an episode you wrote. I thought Kobra was the Crimson Avenger. And I thought Bane was Gene Simmons.

Actually, Bane does look good in this episode. In the comics and his first appearance on Batman:TAS, he looked like a pro wrestler. Then on the Batman revamp on WB (97-99), he wore black leather and had a spiked collar, resembling an S&M character. So, I like the sleek Young Justice version, even though his face is Kiss-like.

Finally, one real complaint. The speech Batman gives at the end where he chews out the kids. He tells them all the things they did wrong, but ends it with a "good job." I've seen that whole "you really messed up...good job!" speech in hundreds of movies and TV shows, to a name a few: Mulan, Patch Adams, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, every episode of "McCloud" and the episode "Initiation" of Justice League.

But overall, it was a good episode.

Uh... thanks.
