A "Young Justice" question I've wondered about a bit and finally decided to submit. In "Secrets", you featured allusions to both "Beowulf" (the Sword of Beowulf, complete with Grendel's arm for its scabbard) and Cain and Abel (I recall one of the locations in the episode was called "Abel's House of Secrets" - which definitely matched Harm's great evil deed being murdering his sibling).

In the original poem "Beowulf", Grendel is described as one of the descendants of Cain (who was punished for his murder of Abel by having his children be monsters); did this inspire the allusions to both "Beowulf" and the Cain and Abel story in the same episode? Or is it just a (neat) coincidence?
