Hi, Mr. Weisman! Another Young Justice fan here. I happen to love the show and like the darker Superboy (it makes total sense...brought up with people who called him 'it,' very very little social interaction, rejected by the man he aspires to be) and I have some questions to clarify some points or just to see if any of my insane fan theories regarding future episodes hit anywhere near the mark. Yes, I know that last one's not likely, but a girl can dream, right?
So. Why did the Justice League choose to only allow their sidekicks into the gym and library? Obviously this had been built up to for some time, and I can hardly imagine that the League has forgotten their youth enough to think that they would just want that (unless they have?). I don't think it was outright condecencsion (did I spell that right?) either, because frankly, if they're facing bullets with you, one would think they'd earned your respect. So why?
And to entertain you with the various wild theories about Artemis, rumor has it that she's Jade Ngyuen or Artemis Crock and most likely impersonating Cissie King. I'm not asking who she is, because I'll find out next week, but that's what I've heard.
Isn't the timeframe for Artemis joining Green Arrow a little odd? It's been, what, a month or two since Roy left; isn't he switching sidekicks a little fast? If it's a plot point later on, you don't have to tell me.
I like Kaldur. I really do. I want a guy like him as my older brother. We already know his sperm donor (I refuse to call him a father, because fathers love and care for you, and unless there are extenuating circumstances revealed later on, I do not count Black Manta as Kaldur's father). Is his mother a possible plot point?
And that's all I've got. Thank you for taking the time to read and answer this!

1. I think the League thought it was a cool first step. And I think if it weren't for the older Speedy (who had more information), it in fact WOULD have been satisfactory for the other three.

2. As revealed in episode 8, she's Artemis Crock.

3. Stay on the alert for issue #7 of the Young Justice companion comic book.

4. His mother's more than "a possible plot point". We'll meet her eventually.
