All right, before I ask my question, I just want to say that Young Justice is one of the most well-written and well-animated shows I've seen in a very long time, and I adore the fact that it is able to take itself seriously and that it develops such compelling characters without heaps of backstory (though, granted, I have yet to read the companion comics). That praise sounded a lot more eloquent in my head. Oh, well.
Anyway, I just wanted to ask something about the episode titles. I've noticed that the majority of the titles are only one word, except for "Independence Day," "Welcome to Happy Harbor," and the last two planned for season one, "Usual Suspects" and "Auld Acquaintance." (I count Alpha-Male and Drop-Zone as one word titles because they have hyphens.)
I just wanted to ask, are the episodes with two words in the title going to be especially important ones, like Independence Day (the pilot) and Welcome to Happy Harbor (the, uh, "second pilot," in which the team itself works together for the first time). I may just be stumbling around in the dark here, and I know it's an odd question, but I was just curious.
Thanks again so, so much for creating such an amazing show! I go running out of class every Friday to catch it, haha.

It doesn't work that way. My tendency has always been for one word titles (or two words if you count the word "The"). But I'll take a better title over a short one any day, and the multiword titles you named just seemed like the best choice for their specific episodes. (FYI, Drop-Zone is hyphenated, but Alpha Male is two words.)
