Cartoon Network unveiled their new and returning series yesterday and one of the new ones was Young Justice.  Based on characters from the DC Universe, Young Justice will feature teenage versions of Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis.  The series will be executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) and Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday, The Batman) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, W.I.T.C.H.) are the producers.

No word on the premiere date, but I’d imagine it’s sometime in the fall and we’ll hear specifics at Comic-Con.  Hit the jump for the first image/poster from the series.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Young Justice: In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over-to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself.  But what if you’re not just a normal teenager?  What if you’re a teenage super hero?  Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League?  That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice-Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis-will found out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero.

Thanks to for the poster.
